2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle. Deep cloudy pale amber coloured brew. Aroma is lightly spicy with soft toasted grain character over a lightly banana-ish flavour. A hint of smokiness with a husky earthiness as well. Warming brings up a slightly vineous sherryish note. A bit phenolic and spicy with light orange citrus, banana and a soft tartness on the back. Honeyed sweetness on the back. The graininess and tartness are interesting, but the phenolics get a bit much after awhile.

0.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours deep copper w 2 f ow head. Nose is funky, slightly assy, with c malt, floral hops. Tastes like a cloying sticky mess, of overly sweet malt and rancid bananas. Palate is awful. I took 3 sips and thrn drain poured almost half of the bottle. A travesty.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear orange bronze with a small froth of wispy white head. Aroma of sweet ripe bananas, more than I’ve ever smelled in a beer before and some fruity esters. Body starts with a touch of sweet candied banana fruit which fades into a muddled slightly earthy and bitter transition before a drier toasty, bready, hefe-weizen yeastiness with a hint of clove. An interesting and unique beer, but it could be a little more balanced and flavorful.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Poured a slightly hazy medium amber/golden with a short dusting of white head sticking around. Nose was very heavy on banana Runts... very sweet with underlying grassiness and yeasty notes. Flavor, as previously mentioned, is strongly remniscent of Circus Peanuts with toasted bananas, a little yeast funk and mild grassy bitterness... very sweet and hard to get through 16 ounces. Sweet finish accented by an intriguing spiciness. Carbonation was on the high end.. decent flow. This was an interesting experiment, but I’m not going back for another.
