Bottle. Poured a clear brown (dark copper) with a little white head. Strong bananas (very nice) Aroma. Taste is sweet, banana, little bit of hops and maybe some nutty tones. Nice Novelty beer but that’s pretty much it.

Pours amber with white head. In aroma - surprise, surprise - bananas, bread and some spice. Taste - liquid bread with bananas. A little bit sweet, but really something different to drink. So good beer ...

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Anyway this beer has a golden hue with just a touch of amber and a thin off white head. For a beer it smells peculiarly of banana. This beer tastes mild and slightly sweet with the obvious taste of banana, which isn’t as strong as the smell, along with a hint of vanilla that seems to be tempered just a little by the bitter hops. It is smooth and creamy almost velvet on the palate.
This is not an everyday beer. As a change of pace I loved it though! It doesn’t taste exactly like banana bread, if it was thicker with a little more toasted grain it might take on the nutty taste necessary to mimic walnuts, but that aside it was still an enjoyable brew. Interestingly, if you want to taste more banana let the beer warm up a little.

(Flasche) Es hat eine bernsteinerne Farbe, ist klar filtriert mit einer fast weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist brotig, bananig (eher wie eine ältere Banane) süßlich und etwas schokladig. Der Geschmack ist wie Banana Bread, mit einer leichten Bittere im Abgang.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: Clear copper with finger thick white head.
Aroma: Banana, raisin, hint of mixed spice and bread.
Taste: Medium sweetness, low/medium bitterness and sourness.
Palate: Thick coarse texture and light body, average/prickly carbonation, lingering banana, spicy malty finish. The banana note is akin to banana milkshake or a chewy banana sweet taste.
Comments: Very good.

30-NOV-2013, bottle @home, present from Limoncelloman, from New York.
Clear, dark golden. Aroma is banana winegum. Taste is banana with malty caramel and a touch of hops. Never really that sweet, just very "banana-driven":-)

Clear copper. Thin white head. Strong dominant banana. Quite dry. Interesting. Not as high alcohol as I’d hope. Interesting brew. Tastes like a soda more than a beer.

Amber color, clear, little foam. Smells like banana laffy taffy, seriously. Flavor is the same plus generic beer malt and hops. Woe is me.
