Bottle. Orange you glad you didnít say banana? Found this interesting beer at the local BP. Thanks Greg. It poures a clear brown amber. The aroma is what this beer is, banana bread. It taste just like it smells, this is actually exaclty what I thought it was going to be, maybe a little darker but pretty honest beer. Maybe give it to a girl, probly wonít buy again.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2008 Bottle. This beer tastes like banana bread. Added a few points to overall score for straightforward honest product labeling. Beer pours a little thin for my taste, as I was hoping in this case for a beer I could chew on. Due to it being so thin, I think the banana flavor is just a little stronger than the bread flavor. Tastes more like a juice or soda than a beer. My advice: If you are buying beer, see this bottle, and get an instant craving for banana bread ; Buy the beer as it will satisfy that craving (banana bread is hard to find in a pinch). Otherwise, ignore it.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
16oz bottle, provided by Gary Jones. Amber pour and very clear. Malty and bready aroma. I guess you could say bananas. I thought the flavor was the same. Very bread like and suppose you can see the banana in this but itís mostly bread. Maybe some biscuit like grain too, but thatís it. Carbonated but light mouth feel.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
[Bottle] BUBBLY! Bubbles from beginning to end. Pours a tanish color and smells exactly like youíd expect it including a nutty afterscent. Taste seems tainted by the amount of bubbles. Iíd love a taste of this with a lot less carbonation. The Beer actually doesnít have much of the sweetness I was expecting, but the bitterness seems like an afterthought. Too much hop taste than I wouldíve expected. Seems like a gimmick beer that doesnít come through. Something to try once and move on.

Pours golden honey w/ a good frothy head that reduces slowly to a spattered canopy and a fluffy lace. Strong aromas of fresh baked banana bread. Medium nectar w/ ample carbonation. This beer is well bittered w/ pronounced banana bread flavors. Not sweet in the least bit. The finish is birttered nicely leaving a malty fruity flavor to linger.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Possibly my new favourite beer. A medium density but packed with a refreshing flavour and a tangy after taste. Carbonation is just right for me.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml bottle. Pours orange clear though. Head is about a finger deep with a tan color. Nose smells a lot like what Iíd expect from Banana Bread. Taste is sweet and light and tastes a bit like banana but overall its a big bowl of ehh for me. Guess this could have lasted longer since i tried this but that said ainít seeking this out again.

I donít think Iíve ever seen a more bubbly beer. Pours thin and and yellow with a quickly dissipating head. Strong aroma of dried bananas and cloves. Very malty sweetness, followed by bananas. Dry, bread finish with a slight hop bitternes. I really enjoyed this.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle. Pours a very thin looking clear light amber with lots of large bubbles clinging to the side of my Duvel tulip and a medium sized bubbly white head. Aroma is decent enough with a big malt backbone of biscuit and perhaps a slightntouch of nuts with the banana only coming in secondary and was nicely done by being obvious yet not overpowering. Thin body with far too much carbonation that bangs around inside your mouth and down your throat almost like they carbonated this beer with pop rocks. Initial flavor of malts that leads way to banana in the aftertaste and finishes rather dry. Try your best to burp about a minute after you swallow because you would swear that you just ate a fresh banana.....honest.
