3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy, carbonated amber/peach/rust. A bit thin--as in "you can taste the bubbles", a quality that always reminds me of mineral water. Banana spice mixes into the caramel but it is a bit thin in flavors. Fizzy. Bottle in Berlin.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Quickly and almost completely disappearing whitish head. Spicy and a bit citric nose. Very watery, like fresh apple juice which is blended with too much water (also looks like such!). Nose promises much fuller product. Not too much banana which is often mentioned here, but more of apples and oranges. Low carbonation.

Bottle @ the German beer festival, One Pint, Helsinki. Very unclear colour, like old bananas: grey-brown. Nothing like the picture. Strong aroma of caramel, with evident banana. Very thick both in taste and palate. Orange flavour, banana finish. Good one!

This was good, more Dark than in the picture. The foam was good, the flavour and the aroma, nice, cold enough, the after taste is a little sweet and the cloudy is different.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Draught at GBBF, London, 3 Aug) Colour is pale brown with a beige head. Nose is fruity with a wheaty character and notes of banana, chocolate and clove. Taste has a bittersweet wheat character and notes of banana, vanilla and chocolate (nice banana and chocolate ice-cream taste). Well balanced and nice, but lacking something extra.
