Has the fruity aromas of a Belgian with banana and strawberry being prominent. The taste gives you characteristics of an Amber Ale with caramel malts and earthy hops on the backend. Another unique offering from Shorts just not sure if I am crazy about this hybrid style.

Nice Belgian fruit esters, but too much pepto character.

Poured into a tulip it has a fluffy off white slight yellow head of an inch and a quarter with a hazy ruby brown body (leaves a nice amount of very white lacing). Smell is grapefruit, citrus, earth, Belgian yeast esters, lots of tropical fruit, mango, banana, slight clove, tons of bubblegum, and some biscuit malt in the background. Taste is lots of banana, bubblegum, clove at the end, some citrus, nice amount of biscuit malt, and some slight floral. Mouth feel is moderate same as body and carbonation. A very Belgian-y pale ale that has a ton of fruit-y banana bubblegum flavor, it's not bad, but it definitely is too much.
