I’m drinking this beer as I write this lol. The aroma is extremely strong, yet sweet, the scent of banana hits you immediately as you open the bottle. It’s appearance is a golden brown, with a small head when poured into a glass. In my opinion it is too fizzy to drink from the bottle, it’s much easier to drink wen left in the fridge open for an hour or so, but thats my opinion. The flavour is strong, and after a while can become sickly, but still enjoyable for a once in a while drink -- I cant see myself drinking bottle after bottle of this. Either way, I highly rec. this drink to anyone who wishes to try new ales.

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2010 The beer makes its first impression with a powerful sweet, doughy, banana aromas, almost dizzying and overwhelming, like a liquer. The white head is very small from minimal carbonation. It’s crystal clear and radiates with amber. Drinking reveals a taste that is soft on the front, with a surge of sweetness in the middle that remains with a hint of bitterness after the end. The alcohol content is at the forefront of the sensation on the tongue, with a bit of bite to match its liqueur like smells. Otherwise it feels like a smooth medium bodied beer. Overall a good beer, worth a try for the novelty if nothing else.

Banana bread flavors come through great. I enjoyed those but the underlying flavors of the beer are not pleasant.

What is on the label, is in the glass! I agree with the previous review, i don’t understand the low ratings on this ale. Bananas and Walnuts! Not a lot going on in terms of flavor, but what it has is very drinkable.

Pours light amber with a shade of brown and a thin white head. Aroma of maple syrup and banana/bread. Taste of syrup and banana. Not really to my taste.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a dark amber with a thin white head. Aroma is ALL sweet, predominantly bananas. The banana aroma is a little too sweet for my tastes, almost like an about to go past ripe banana. The taste is unsurpisingly sweet. There is a little bit of underlying bitterness but the sweetness predominates. Palate is a little bit grainy, with little carbonation. Overall I was disappointed. It’s not a bad beer, it just is a little one dimensional for my tastes.

A surprisingly nice beer, the banana is subtle enough to make it like a slightly spicy fruit beer. With a great fullness of flavour.

Pours a golden amber, aroma of bananas, hops, bread, pretty simple to explain, taste like dipping a piece of banana bread in beer. It is a must to try.
