Bottle. Big banana aroma...smells a bit burnt. Same deal with the flavor. Very pronounced banana, but not at all like a Hefe. More like Bananas Foster. Darker, slightly roasty, creamy. Not too sweet. Good.

Mixed feelings about this. One of these is very enjoyable, but I always distrust flavor-added brews. Pours nice dark brown with little head. Unsurprisingly, banana on the nose. Taste is initial banana, and ripe fruit, but followed closely by very nice malt smoothness and rich nuttiness. Finish is fairly clean, with nice banana bread aftertaste.

Bottle from Buffalo NY. Not sure what everyone else was tasting, but we poured this out. Banana tasted fake & the overall beer wasnít pleasant. Giving it a 2.0 because Iíll give the benefit of a doubt via otherís ratings.

Surprised to see it as a fruit but will rate it anyways. Iíd get this again, it was quite good. Banana nut bread mmm. Good to the last drop. Thanks for the bottle share Ron!

(bottle - 12 oz) Nut brown pour with a puffy white head. Mild banana and walnut hint to the aroma. Off to a good start. Flavor starts off a bit bitter with a banana sweetness coming up to cut through it. Lightly sweet finish.

Draft at the huddle. Smooth and sweet brew with a nice banana nut bread flavor. Could have some artificial flavorings in it, but itís still nice.

Bottle, 355 ml at Breukelen Beer Merchants, Brooklyn. Banana and nuts in aroma and flavor. Malty. Reminds me of candy bar we have in Croatia. Feels just a bit artificial. Interesting and much better than Wells.

Such a great trade with tgncc...Tom, you are awesome! Thanks for exposing me to this beer! Never would have sought it out, but so glad I had a chance to try it! Chestnut pour with a tightly packed eggshell head. Aroma of banana bread, yeast, brown sugar, caramel, cashew, walnut, and pistachio. Such a unique and well crafted beer. So unique and flavorful. Donít think Iíve ever had a brew where banana took center stage like this. Amazing!

Tastes like banana nut bread! Maybe a little heavy on the banana and light on the caramel malt and toasted grain but still tasty and not too sweet.
