Sample at Hopfest 2015. Comes golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of fruit and spice. Taste is banana, citrus, spice, and wheat. Interesting to try once.

Woof. Coriander nose. Citrus flavor yielding to fake banana flavor, like those Runts that I always throw away. Indistinct sweetness overwhelms the mouth, I guess its a honeyed component but something else I can’t place, and a flavor I’ve hardly ever encountered in beer. Its weird. Anyway, its not good, but it ain’t terrible, it remains somehow finishable. Cloudy but unlively golden appearance.

Sampled on draft this beer poured a murky amber color with a medium sized foamy white head that left no lacing. The aroma was banana, wheat and yeast. The flavor was banana, phenol and bread dough. Medium length finish. Medium body. Meh.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A cloudy dark yellow colour, good head of foam.
I get the smell of wheat and bananas though their aromas are anything but assertive.
The taste is a tad better. The banana takes on an accompaniment of bread which almost brings banana bread to mind.
Not a horrible experience drinking this but having it again is doubtful.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Much better than expected with a sort of banana bread vibe. Too sweet for repeated drinking but not bad for a change of pace.

Yeah, it’s light, clean, refreshing. A little bit of spice upfront, some banana. The banana was kind of impressive initially and then my palate seemed to get used to it. It seems pretty well put together and I think it could have supported more banana.
