This red ale pours an amber brown and is cloudy with a good bubbly head that keeps form. Good carbonation with some nice moderate lacing.
It smells of citrus, malt, bananas, spice. Fairly reminiscent of Unibroue's La Fin du Monde. In a blind smell test, I'm not sure if I could tell the difference.
Taste has bananas, malt, spices, touch of honey, even a mild hint of maple. A bit more sugary in taste than La Fin du Monde.
Mouthfeel has a slight earthiness to it with good bubbliness. Decent balance of flavors. Some moderate dryness.
Overall, this is a solid beer, reminiscent of La Fin du Monde (a good thing), though it's not as well balanced and has somewhat lesser taste.
