2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
One word: WEIRD! Not bad, necessarily, I just don’t know what to make of it. If you’ve ever been sitting around, eating banana bread, and thought to yourself, "This is pretty good, but it would be even better if I could have this without chewing AND it would get me drunk!" than this is the beverage for you. If not, this is probably not be for you. Bananas explode out of the glass in the nose.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a golden clear color with a white-tan foamy head. The aroma smells of the obvious banana with a medium touch of malt. On first taste the banana really comes out with a sense of sweet sugar. Moving into the bottle a bit of fresh hops notes arise with more malt on a light tip. Definitely one to try out!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
First thing is the malt charateristic is really weak and bland. The flavor is completely dominated by banana spiciness, tastes rich, but overly infused and artificial.
