3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a light orange-brown with a very bubbly, white head. Nose holds extreme banana, some light malts. Flavor has some banana to it but it doesn’t match the intensity of the aroma. I wish it was sweeter. A tad creamy, this beer brings to mind banana cream pie. I wish the beer had more body, though. Finish is crisp. Interesting and decent, but as it is I wouldn’t put it above novelty status.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Smells like banana, even like banana bread. Copper amber color with an offwhite head. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is malt, banana and nutty spice. Finish is not quite so pleasant as the start; there’s something bitter, which doesn’t go that well with banana. That clears up though, and in the end it’s dry with remnants of banana. Definitely not a hefe. Overall it’s pretty tasty.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very strong banana flavour that tends to be rather like perfume, a little fake and exaggerated. Good, but too short middle taste, ended with another dose of banana in the aftertaste. A curiousity though not a great discovery.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: The pour is a golden amber color with plenty of carbonation and a nice off-white head.
S: What can I say, it smells like banana bread. Sweet banana, subtle spices, and a light nutty aroma to it as well as some bready base malts.
T: There is a slight bitterness to the flavor that I wasn’t completely expecting, but otherwise it (again) is quite reminiscent of banana bread. Sweet banana and caramelized sugar flavors, along with a hint of toasted nuts.
M: The body is medium and the carbonation is a bit on the high side, which was actually sort of welcomed.
D: I was not expecting too much from this beer, to be completely honest. However, I really enjoyed it. It did indeed taste like banana bread and was not cloying or overly artificial.

Light amber, not much head. Sweet aroma from artificial banana. Artificial flavor as well, strange and not very pleasant at all.
