Beer Review 89 // Turbo Cobra Ninja by Beyond the Pale

Welcome back for another work brew review. Still stuck at home so haven't been super adventurous with my beer ordering. So I am sticking with my work beers. Up this week a style I am not a big fan of the Belgian yeast brews.


Name: Turbo Cobra Ninja

Style: Belgian Strong Ale

Brewery: Beyond the Pale Brewing Company

Country: Canada, Ontario. Ottawa.

ABV: 9%

Commercial Fluff: It's a 100% pilsner malt Belgian strong ale. Experience the aromas of banana, sweet malts and candy sugar. Then as your tongue gets wet hang on for a ride of banana yeast notes finishing dry and tart. Perfect for a hot day!

Own Opinion

Label: A bit of strange one but so is the name. I like that parts of the label are clear to allow the silver can to show through.

Pour: Golden pour with a lively white head. Looks good and the head hangs on for quite a while.

Aroma: Banana yeast is coming to the foreground (I hate that banana yeast aroma I find it so of putting).

Taste: Sweet, boozy, banana, cloves and a little spice. This is proving to be too Belgian for me.

Would I buy it again: No. Though I know it is well made and is enjoyed by many of my friends. I just can't get passed that banana aroma and taste. I'm so sorry I can't get passed it as I feel this is winner otherwise. But to each their own taste.

What are thoughts? Is their a style of beer that no matter how many attempts you just can't drink them? Let me know in the comments I would love to hear more.
