Yep, tastes very good. Very esther-y (banana) as would be expected with Belgian yeast. nice color and clarity. there is a very little bit of a thin metallic component to the nose right now but I am hoping that ages out.

The mushroom and saffron are very subtle - can just barely be detected if you are looking for it....I might experiment with adding more of the homemade extracts next time to see if they become too overwhelming or if I could get away with a bit more.

Overall I think it is excellent but maybe a little "grren" (I'm a bit green myself so not 100%) I'll update as the bottles get opened over the season.
