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.

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

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.
