Verboten

Today I'm drinking Verboten, a Belgian-Style Pale Ale brewed by Weyerbacher Brewing Company in Easton, Pennsylvania. This is the first new Weyerbacher beer I've seen in a while down here in Florida. The label is very simple: a tan background with an edgy font that states the beer's name, Verboten, meaning forbidden. Uh oh!

Light fruity aroma with some yeasty and spicy qualities. Lots of banana flavors explode right in the beginning and are accompanied by tons of yeast. Spicy cloves are also very noticeable. As you progress, the beer takes on some hoppy and lemony characteristics. More banana and yeast take control before you finish with a slightly medicinal, alcohol dry ending. Even at relatively low 5.9% alcohol, it was a noticeable factor. Good carbonation and chewy body. Not bad, but I have others from this style that I like better.  Ommegang BPA, for example.
