3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
ALTHOUGH THIS IS THE ONLY BANANA BEER I HAVE YET TO SAMPLE, I HAVE FOUND FEW OTHER BEERS TO CATCH THE AROMA OF THEIR MAIN INGREDIENTS SO WELL. THIS BEER SMELLS ALMOST EXACTLY LIKE A BANANA NOW AND LATER, WHICH I LOVE AND USED TO SELL IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL FOR A DIME EACH WHEN A PACK OF FIVE COST A QUARTER. THE FLAVOR, HOWEVER PLEASANT, IS NOT OVERPOWERINGLY BANANA, IT HAS A DISTINCT AND SUBTLE WHEAT FLAVOR THAT ACCOMPANYS THE BANANA QUITE WELL. YET DONT BE FOOLED THIS IS A LIGHTLY FLAVORED SELTZERY KIND OF BEER WITH A MODEST ALCOHOL CONTENT. STILL OVERALL, THIS BEER STRANGE AS IT MAY SEEM TO A UNCULTURED BEER DRINKER, IS DAMN GOOD.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber colored beer with small head; clear.
Well, there’s clearly a lot of bananas in aroma, but also some yeast/cheese and bread. Very small hint of rag.
Medium bitterness, quite high sweetness.
The texture is frothy, carbonation high and body stands between medium and full.

Pours a very clear dark amber, not much head retention. Obvious banana aroma dominating the nose. Malt and banana on the tongue, no detectable hop bitterness. High carbonation but not much body.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
transparent medium brown liquid, pours a yellowish white head that keeps its texture reasonably well. aromas of malt, bread, slightly citrusy hops but tipping towards banana, fruit.. a bit boring and one-sided trying to emphasise the banana a bit too clearly. the body is light and does not provide any additional texture to deepen the experience. as a plus side, at least it is clear and plain enough to let you enjoy what there without disturbance. An ok banana beer. Tastes like a beer instead of just beer with juice/flavour which is good.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Pours a thin dark golden amber with a thin head the dissapeared quicly. Overwheming smell of bananas and alcohol. Flavor was also of bananas and alcohol. Tasted started off very ale like than the nasty banana flavors finished it off. I’ll probably never drink this again.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
11.2 oz bottle. Pours clear goldish dark orange. Nose is sweet, fresh banana with candy sugar. The taste is a little bready and not as sweet as the nose suggests, but still very banana-y. An interesting beer.
