Sweet with belgian yeast and a bubblegum-like aftertaste. Very drinkable

Acquired from mwrecording so a big “Thank You” to him. Poured from a 12oz can into a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a light gold color with a large white head that fades slowly and leaves a spotty lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains Belgian yeast, spices, bananas, caramelized malts, some citrus and some hops.

T: The taste starts out with a burst of peppery spices that is quickly followed by some mildly sweet flavors of citrus, bananas and caramel. Then some breadiness comes in from Belgian yeast and a hearty but not too heavy malt character. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a solid Belgian-style beer to drink for a long time.

12oz can into a solo cup.

A: Straw/light golden hues. Very clear. Big fluffy white head that diminished much quicker than anticipated. Minimal lacing.

S: Banana, sweetish yeastiness, mild fruit.

T: Bright, off-bitter, vaguely hoppy. The banana really carries over well to the palate & provides a nice counterpoint to what is otherwise a very yeasty quaff.

M: Not great, it seems a little watery for the style.

O: Dangerously drinkable for the ABV. I'd say Brewer's Art overachieved on this one.
