2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Capped 750ml from MJRBC. Hazy, dirty gold with a white head. Strange overripe banana and dust nose, some light citrus fruit notes. Taste is strange - the banana comes through is spades, strong and sweet, but the dustiness and the fruitiness does not work for me here. Tough to rate, really, seems well done but doesn’t "work".Not dring=king another anytime soon.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy golden orange with small white head. Aromas of banana (runts), fruit and spice characteristic of Belgian yeast. Taste is mildly sweet, mildly tart, with notes of banana and other fruitiness typical of a golden ale with a mildly spicy finish. Light to medium body with prickly carbonation.

Bottle. Dulled light brownish beer with a light head. The aroma is lightly banana and slightly toffee, and the flavour is banana, mildly hopped and spiced. Overall not bad for a banana flavoured beer.

Thanks to SwoopJones. Appearance: Cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma: Stewed banana/plantains, chemical-candy too. Flavour: Like a melted banana candy mixed with soda water. Ukkk.

UPDATED: NOV 13, 2010 [2638-20091205] 750mL bottle. Weird banana uncooked cake and raisins. Hazy, light brown orange body with a quick foamy white head. Flavour has an odd saison yeasty raisin characteristic with banana notes. Medium body. Weird marshmallow banana melts. (6/3/6/3/12) 3.0
Overheard: "Aroma: poopy." "Not poop?" "Not poop, poopy."
(c/o swoopjones, w/ others)
[3266B-20100803] Cask sample. Very banana, quite a surprisingly strong aroma. Slightly hazy, light orange brown body with a medium-lasting foamy white head. Fresh banana flavour has a hint of pineapple. Medium body. Such a weird brew, so much banana and not a lot of the wheat that usually comes with it. (7/4/7/3/14) 3.5

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pure golden pour. Small white head. Lagerish aroma with some faint banana and fruit hints. Flavor is like a sweetish lager. Banana flavor is light and I hardly taste any raisins. Maybe a small golden raisin flavor. Weird beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle sampled on 4/5/09: Pours a hazy golden with lots of floaties and a well-lacing frothy white head. Aroma of fresh sweet pale malt and fruity bananas and a touch of Belgian yeast. Starts with good fullness and carbonation along with lots of sweet fruity banana flavor and a touch of grapes before a peppery slightly warming finish. An interesting and unique brew, but could hide its alcohol a little better.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle [750ml] shared w/ friends at the ’2nd Annual Buffalo Cask Festival’ -- c/o swoopjones. Pours a murky pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma of banana candy that was eaten and then pooped out whole. Flavour: Ugh! Argh! Disgusting. Overly sweet, poopy, banana candy. Average bodied. One of the worse beers ever and I’m worse off having tried it.
