Pours a deep clear brown. Aroma is banana, Jack Daniels, tobacco, and cream savers. Taste is bananas and and spices. Aroma is better than taste by a long shot. Thin and oily. Easy to drink and quite enjoyable.

Very slight aroma of banana with some bread. Pours a clear light amber colour. Light bitter taste. Light body, creamy texture, with a definite banana finish. Interesting.

Can’t say I am a huge fan of the banana bread beer. It is well done, smells and tastes just like banana bread, I just had a hard time with something so sweet. I was expecting banana, but this was a bit too much.

500mL bottle purchased for $5 from Bauer Wines in Boston. Pours a clear medium gold, with lots of bubbles but little head. I just finished off the rest of my toddler’s banana after putting him to bed. Will that make this judgment better or worse? It’s a decent malt aroma, but sadly I’m not getting any banana. And this IS a banana beer, after all. After the first sip, I’m having trouble figuring out what banana tastes I have are coming from the beer vs the banana I just ate. Pretty sure that little burp right that was from the real banana. I suppose this means that I can make any beer a banana beer by eating a banana before it, and I won’t have to pay $5 for the privilege! Subsequent tastes are getting better as the flavours become more distinguishable. Banana flavours - more direct and less subtle than a hefeweizen. I gave my wife a blind tasting, and she noted heavy banana flavours - perhaps because she doesn’t much care for the fruit. A fun beer.

Old rating. I’m sorry but I can’t stand this. The banana just take over and it’s to much. Banana should be in hefeweizen, not in this.

Dark golden pour with a nice white head. Very subtle banana flavors come and go as you pour and smell the beer. The banana flavor is not too overpowering, but one can definitely taste it on the palate.

pours a transparent golden copper color with a quickly disappearing head. scent is of bananas and some hops. nice mouth feel. the banana flavor makes for an interesting sensation. a decent beer, but probably not one that i would purchase again.

Smells and tastes like banana...in a beer. Nothing special other than the fact that it was interesting to try.

Rolig banan & bröd ale. Man känner banansmaken men får mest associationer till smakämnen av banan tex lite skumbanan. Även i doften. Relativt söt. Dock dålig kropp å ingen eftersmak.

500ml Bottle. The thing about this beer, before I start to review it properly, is that it does what it says on the label - it is banana bread (no not bananas but BANANA BREAD) in liquid and alcohollic form - it is bloody lovely!!! That said.... Aroma is banana, cloves, cinnemon, brown sugar, malt, and yeast. Appearance wise it looks like a standard brown ale and it pours fairly weakly. Dont let that put you off because the taste is wonderful and what this beer is all about - pure banana bread, not bananas, not bread but banana bread. Fantastic!!! You wouldnt want to have more than one or two of these as its so rich.
