Bottle at home. Nice orange colour, fast-receding head. Fruity, banana aroma. Oily, fruity flavour with big banana finish. Spicy finish. Big sugary, bubblegum banana flavour. Tried to drink this once in Notting Hill, so finally closed the book on this one.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A nice and different beer. Aroma of banana and some malt. Pour was a light brown with a little off white head with no lacing. Taste was of sweet banana and some caramel. Very wet finish. I drank this while watching 4th of July fireworks on my deck and it both quenched and satisfied. Probably would have scored higher had I liked bananas. I just kept telling myself it was a hefe :)

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear orangeyt amber with almost no head. Nose is beery and bananas. Flavors is sweet banana taffy up front only to transition into a bitter, beery finish. I have been wanting to try this one for a long time, unfortunately it was somewhat disappointing. It was thin and not a rich banana flavor then spirals into this dry, bitter finish. I wish it had remained as it started.

Bottle, 0,5l. The color is nice brown. The head is white. The arome is like a banana bonbon. Sweet. The flavor follows right after with a sweet banana taste. A special beer, more special than good.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amber beer with banana aromas. Agressively carbonated and rather thin. Smells good, but it could be a much bigger beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is IMO basically a gimmick beer. It looks "ok’,smells of mild malt and artificial bananas.
This would be better on a cool autumn night with the mouth feel. Taste wise it reminds me of a beery version of a cereal Jimmy Durante was hawking back when I was a kid. Grains and artificial bananas,add in some nutty malt and a tich of syrup..There ya are.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a light amber color with a strong aroma of bananas and malts. Taste is an interstesting combination of banana bread, yeast and malts. In the absence of a good banana bread....
