Feel free to comment on any of these pairing suggestions, especially if you had another beer pairing in mind.
If this dessert isn't available the beer pairings below will work with other desserts that have a coffee and/or toffee focus.
While this beer pairs well with the cake it doesn't pair so well with the berries and cream.
When the beer is cold this pairing doesn't work as well because the banana and cloves are masked by the cold and the esters are still being held in suspension and the elevated carbonation levels cleanse the palate too quickly. As the beer warms and looses some of its carbonation, the beer will coat your palate more and will allow the banana and clove notes to mingle with the dessert as you chew and add a new layer of complexity to this dessert.
The Howlin' Hefe is also a great pairing for the berries and cream. The bananas and clove add another flavor component to this dessert making it more interesting than it was before, which is what a good beer pairing should do.
