2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Iíd heard that this tasted artificial, like somebody squirted some extract into the barrel. On that front, I didnít think so - the flavour of banana tasted good and worked well with the toasty finish. There was something else sweet in there, though, which didnít feel necessary at all. I didnít have a problem with the way it was brewed, but ultimately I wasnít expecting much from a banana flavoured beer. It was about as enjoyable as I could have hoped for.

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.

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 Iíd hope. Interesting brew. Tastes like a soda more than a beer.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Amber color, clear, little foam. Smells like banana laffy taffy, seriously. Flavor is the same plus generic beer malt and hops. Woe is me.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Skunky sweet banana aroma with a tiny bit of brown sugar. Clear copper under a bubbly, lasting white sheet and ring. Sweet, but not overly, banana and sweet base malt flavour with very low bitterness and watery. Light body, moderate carbonation, lingering banana.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear yet somewhat hazy orange/brown body with a one finger white foamy head that quickly dies and leaves some light clingy somewhat foamy lacing; the aroma has banana bread (wow, never would have thought that something like this wouldve been pulled off, but Wells pulled this one off right on the spot); the flavor is sweet, in fact somewhat bready sweet, banana aftertaste; its fairly easy on the palate; overall, well, though fairly hard to review to style due to the vague yet somewhat broad range of flavors, and since this is my first "banana bread" beer - well I like this one and would have it again
