Bottle from Philly Steak. Nice notes of banana and bread. No synthetic fruit taste, body was a little thin, but the flavor was refreshing.

Pours a dark golden color with white head. Bananas are all over the nose, some cloves and bread too; follows onto the palate. Finishes with sweetness.

Pours clear amber with small tan head out of bottle. Aroma of bread, wheat, and slight hint of banana. Flavor identical to banana bread with a finish of beer. Not a bad beer but I usually don't like to drink my banana bread.

Tap at Lazy Dog. Pours amber with a bit of off white head. Aroma of yeast, bread malts, and bananas. Taste is like a watered down version of the aroma.

Surprisingly good! Tastes like banana bread and both me and my girlfriend enjoy it (didn’t think I would)!

Draft sampler pour at Face to Face Beerfest ( f2f.org ): gigantic dicetyl and vanilla room deodizer aroma that follows in flavor; leanest body. Worse than artificial flavor in double-cream soda (if there is such a thing).

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear brown/amber pour with very minimal head that leaves almost no lace. Nose is a mix of sour grainy notes and banana bread with a lot of cola type notes. The banana bread comes through a lot better on the palate but there’s still a lot of underlying cheap grain notes. I wouldn’t pay for this again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Smells of wheat and banana but slightly artificial like the difference between fresh bananas and banana oil. Color is orange/amber with a strong taste of banana pudding to my palate. Not overly sweet like I thought it was going to be a good desert beer but not something you would want all the time.

Klarowne, jasne piwo o ładnej pianie. W aromacie słodkie, bananowe z delikatną nutą żelaza. W smaku zaskakująco mocno goryczkowe bez słodkich akcentów. Dosyć lekkie w odbiorze.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Transfer from BA review on 2-18-12 -
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance - A nice golden color with a white head that fades to give a thin persistent foam with a little bit of lacing.
Smell - Banana aroma is huge up front. While it is a bit of an artificial banana flavoring aroma, when mixed with the bready malt aroma, it is very nice. The banana, coupled with the breadiness and a little bit of sweet caramel make for a very nice smell.
Taste - Upfront the flavor has a more of a sweet taste of caramel and banana. The breadiness comes in quickly however giving a more banana bead like flavor. While not the most potent flavor, the banana bread persists, but the sweet of the bread flavor fades over time to a more buttery and malty flavors toward the end.
Mouthfeel - A moderate body with a medium level of carbonation. Nothing fantastic, but seemingly quite fitting for the beer.
Overall - The aroma of the beer is fantastic and in some ways sets you up for a disappointment in the taste and feel. I just expected something more chewy and bananay in taste; more banana bread in nature. Worth a try, but not something I would go to on any regularity.
