This beer is quite what it says it is. Very bready, very banana-y. The pour is a hazy honey with a thin head that disappears very quickly. The nose is immediately banana bread with underlying clove/cinnamon. The first few tastes follow suit, very yeasty and with plenty of banana. Hops make an appearance a few sips in and lends a much appreciated balance. The hops beat the yeast to the finish, leading a lingering bitterness that is this particular beer’s weakness.

0.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2010 Appearance: Clear brown, looks like tea.
Aroma: Smells exactly like banana bread, which is this stuffs best quality.
Palate: Pretty soft mouth feel with some alcohol bite.
Flavor: Burnt banana bread soaked in rubbing alcohol.
Overall: Bad idea. I like the taste of banana in the hefe-weizens but this has NO malt or hops flavors at all. Only banana and alcohol. Does not taste remotely like a beer. Just a mixture of water, banana flavored syrup and alcohol. IMO, it’s an air freshener, but you’re not suppose to drink it.

Something a little different. Aromas smell more of candy bananas, but the taste is softer and, appripriately breadier.

I was half expecting this to be a fairly nondescript ale with a light flavouring of banana..... I was very wrong! In fact I could better describe this inventive drink as fermented banana with a light flavouring of ale!! I won’t ramble but it’s unique, the beer behind it, is fairly bitter, feels light, pours a decent head. The novelty will wear off but its fun and tasty while it lasts!

Odeur très original de pain aux bananes. Très belle couleur cuivrée foncée. Beau collet de mousse fine. Goût de bon pain aux bananes avec avant de malt. Un peu acide et sec en bouche après avoir avalé. Généralement une bonne expérience.

Curiouser and curiouser. I was intrigued when I first saw the bottle in the local store. Did not try it for quite a while, as there are so many great ales in San Diego. One night i wanted something with a late dinner and it sounded good. It was. The first few sips did not hit me, but then as I drank more, the smell of the bananas kicked in and it was good. I would probably not drink this ale by itself, but with a sandwich, or a light meal, very good. Smell of bananas says it all.

Aroma was malty, but with more hoppiness than I had expected. Poured from the bottle a dark, but translucent amber, with very little head. Taste was incredibly malty, but had a nice, bitter hop balance to it. Didn’t really get a lot of banana until the finish, which is a pleasant, ripe banana flavor which lingers for quite a while.

Definitely not an every day beer. Thought, great if you want to try some thing unique. It certainly tastes like bananas, though the bread part I am not so sure of. If you pick up a 4 pack and take it to a house party you will most assuredly get some strange looks, and it is a great conversation starter.
