N: Light spice, lots of bananas and acrylic paint.
P: Goes really big and fruity and the high abv keeps that flavor going as you inhale and exhale.   Not super complex, but really tasty.
F: Zingy lemon cake, very long finish with terrific lingering flavor.

And I love the label!

Nose of cinnamon, candle wax, pool water.

 

Palate is delicious and weird, there's the spice expected from the cinnamon nose and a general fruity background. But also a chemical aspect, sort of like the smell/taste of Silly String. But I like it. Momentary plastic in the finish, then cinnamon/spices amplify at length. More please.
