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 it’s mostly bread. Maybe some biscuit like grain too, but that’s 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 you’d expect it including a nutty afterscent. Taste seems tainted by the amount of bubbles. I’d love a taste of this with a lot less carbonation. The Beer actually doesn’t have much of the sweetness I was expecting, but the bitterness seems like an afterthought. Too much hop taste than I would’ve expected. Seems like a gimmick beer that doesn’t come through. Something to try once and move on.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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 I’d 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 ain’t seeking this out again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I don’t think I’ve 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.
