Banana taffy, powdered clove and chalky yeast play well against the breadiness ... banana bread? Deep smoothness that still retains a crisp snap in the back, medium bodied is not too much for the style. Semi-thick bready character throughout, mild spicing and faint esters. Overripe fruit and clove, some tartness adds a refreshing quality. Semi-dry finish. Absolutely remarkable that this beer has flown under my radar for so long. Giving the Germans a run with this one.
