4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I heard about this beer for a long time before I actually had a chance to acquire it. It had a high billing, so I was expecting a lot. It did not disappoint. The aroma is no doubt a composite of banana which i presume could be banana, but likely a bit of the yeast common in hefeweizens. It also has a bit of roastyness and nuttiness in there. The appearance is a moderate golden color with a decent white head, that does fade over time. The taste is not blatantly banana, but rather more of an essence of banana bread. Itís definitely there, but with also a bit of light hops, some yeast as well. The beer is confounding here. Itís more medium bodied, texture is some where between medium creamy. Carbonation is average. The finish beckons you to keep going till, well you order another, and another. I really enjoyed this. Itís pricey, for what it its, but itís a must try. On a side note this would be an excellent beer to cook with.

500ml bottle, work leaving present. Sparkling orange gold colour, white foam head and aroma of banana, fruity, vanilla. Taste is sweetish bready malt & banana flavour, with caramel, toffee, vanilla notes and light bitterness. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, dry bready earthy finish. Quite OK.

Well, itís definitely a banana bread beer. Overly sweet focus on banana flavor without really holding up the beer end of things. Meh.

Cerveja dourada e translúcida, com espuma persistente, clara sem formação de halos. O aroma é totalmente dominado pela banana, sendo impossível notar outras influências. O sabor é curioso, não se sente o álcool e o sabor da banana predomina todos os sentidos da cerveja. Apesar da espuma presente, ela não é cremosa e quase imperceptível ao tomar. Ponto positivo é o toque aveludado e suavidade que favorece que a drinkability. Apesar disso, é enjoativa é difícil de ser tomada em boa quantidade. Acredito que possa funcionar bem como sobremesa, ou acompanhando alguma dessa, de modo a complementar o sabor. Ruim para acompanhar alimentos salgados, porém talvez caia bem com queijos fortes para equilibrar o sabor.

Bottle tasted at home. Pours a clear amber brown color with a small off white head. The aroma has quite a bit of banana, lightly nutty, caramel, some sweet bread. The flavor has banana, lightly nutty, caramel, some strange bitterness that seems out of place, hints of metallic and chemicals, all in all, about what I expected.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reddish golden beer with small off white head that retains a thin covering throughout. Well carbonated. Aroma of banana flavoured sweets and hopped beer. Flavour is like banana cake. Initially like a heavy desert but thereís a metallic bitterness that offsets the sweetness and seems a bit at odds with the rest of the package. Bready dry finish is light and moreish. Takes a while to get used to but overall enjoyable.

Aroma of cheap banana bread. Leaves, malt and spice. Flavor is artificial banana but not overpowering with sweetness like so many other over aggressive fruit beers. Alcohol feel is short and flawed.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear amber colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma is sweet of bready malts, banana, toffee, some nuttiness and cloves, but mainly banana foam sweets. Taste of bready malts, banana, caramel, grain and slightly metallic. Medium bodied, fizzy carbonation and a watery texture. Mainly sweet with a dry bitter, grainy finish. I do enjoy banana in beer, this is decent but too highly carbonated and watery to be really enjoyable, which is a shame.
