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).

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.

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.

Bottle to shaker glass. Pour deep golden. Not much head, no lacing. Smells like banana. Tastes like bananas Light carbonation, light body. Watery. Finishes semi-sweet. Well I tried it.

Bottle - Pours amber with a fizzy white head which rapidly disappears. Aroma of bubblegum, flowers and yeast. Taste is indeed banana - but more like foam banana sweets (the ingredients list includes both bananas and flavouring) - some bready aroma and yeast, but it’s weak and watery. Some bitterness and oak. Light sweetness. Light body, medium to strong carbonation. It’s a shame because this has potential to be a great beer but it tastes so watered down.

Pours a nice color but does not have enough carbonation. Smells delicious and tastes pretty good as well. I think overall this beer could be improved though.

500ml bottle, 5.2%. A nice beer with strong banana aroma. It tastes very like banana bread so is very well named. Pleasant to drink and easy on the palate. A good effort!
