3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I am really surprised at all the low ratings for this one, actually...This was actually one of the first fruit beers that I have truly enjoyed...Had on tap at the Winking Lizard. Aromas of just a hint of banana...Taste was sweet malts, slight banana, some caramel, followed by just a bit of bitterness on the finish. Not what I was expecting at all. I really thought it would be sugary sweet, and instead, I found it to be a perfectly drinkable fun beer to indulge in once in a while. Outstanding? No, but certainly a decent attempt at a fruit beer.

On tap at the winking lizard - Bland, boring, unexciting, and not worth the time, trouble, or the money. It was watery and bland with a slight artificial banana aftertaste.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the winking lizard - Pours amber with a short offwhite head that faded pretty quick. Aromas of caramel and banana. Flavor is caramel with banana. The banana isn’t overpowering and actually adds pretty decent flavor to this one. Slight bitterness on the finish. Fairly smooth and easy drinking on the palate. This was better honestly than I expected it to be but still nothing great.

Fascinating the first couple of sips. Aftar that the banana, banana and more banana get a bit overwhelming. It says in the commercial description that is the beer has a gentle nose of banana. Well, not as gentle as a monster truck show. but close. Glad I had it though, now I can go on with my life.

Clear dark gold. Little head. Light banana aroma but heavy on the banana flavor which is cool. Weak palate. Drinkable & good b/c it’s different but could only drink one at a time. Probably one and done.

Bottle. Pours a ho-hum deep autumn brown with an aroma of banana bread. Flavor is lemon and faint banana. Watery mouthfeel. Smells great, but the flavor doesn’t live up to the aroma.

Dark Amber colour. Quick disapating foam. Old banana and perfumy to the nose. Bit sweet. Same old banana and perfumy taste as in aroma just a bit dulled. Hardly any hop bitterness. -23A

not as sweet as feared, but a bit weak and watery. a diluted version of something that might have initially been interesting.

I am surprised by the low ratings for this one. Not that it is great, but it could have been screwed up in so many ways. Instead I found it pleasently subtle with a nice banana essence, but nothing that beats you over the head like I though it might.

I’m fond of bananas, but bananas in beer? I’ve already had a polish one which was terrible! This one however is much better. Aromas of banana, some malt and some light hoppiness. First taste is sweet with lots of banana and bubblegum, later on it gets better, more caramel, some licorice(?) and some malt, some light bitterness. Finishes long, fruity and a little bitter. Wouldn’t buy it again though...strange!
