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. It’s definitely there, but with also a bit of light hops, some yeast as well. The beer is confounding here. It’s 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. It’s pricey, for what it its, but it’s a must try. On a side note this would be an excellent beer to cook with.

Very smooth and amber in flavor. Little to no head. But tastes and smell like banana bread without any bitterness to be found.

Bottle. Aroma is bready and malty with a hint of banana. The flavour of the banana comes through in the taste together with a touch of bitterness. I kinda think I shouldn’t like this but I do.

Smells and tastes like banana bread! Bit of a "sting" on first taste, but easy to drink.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
500mL pours a fairly clear copper with a small white head. Aroma is hugely skunked, with pot, skunk cabbage and some strange herbal vegetal notes. Flavour is totally different, with notes of butterscotch, banana, and vanilla. Very bready with a dominant vegetal and banana finish. Not an atrocity, but it’s really bad.

Bottle from OPC in Busan for 5200 KRW, served in a pint glass. It pours an orange Amber with a light beige head. The aroma is fruity banana bread. Light bodied and incredibly fruity banana with malty caramel and bready notes. Tasty and it is what it says it is. A fun wacky beer in my opinion though not one I'd drink regularly.

Aroma has lots of sweet caramelised banana. The flavour of over ripe bananas is too sweet for my taste.

Wanted to like this but .......no. Afraid the banana taste for me was just wrong. Adding more just to up load.
