From old tasting notes. Draft at the Fruit in the Room. Pours a hazy golden yellow in color and topped by a small head of off white foam. The aroma shows of bread, dry pale grains, yeast, hints of citrus, and sweet banana. The banana is really evident up front. The flavor follows with the banana, yeast, esters, and bread and balanced out with some hop bitterness on the back end. Medium bodied with balanced carbonation that leads to a sweet banana finish. Im not big on banana in beer, but this was a solid treatment to the base beer.

...had this a while ago in the Cigar City tasting room. If I remember correctly, it had a staleish plantain flavor, that did not balance well, and seemed to overpower the beer. I dont remember there being any prominent wheat or yeast notes in there, and finished like a dry plantain.

Review from notes at Cigar Citys taproom on 9/9/11 for Firkin Friday. Draft poured into a CCB pint glass. Appearance: Poured a light gold with a 1/2 finger white fluffy head. Decent lacing. Smell: Wheat and sweet banana. Taste: Banana and sweet citrus up front followed by sweet wheat in the middle before ending with cooked plantains. Mouthfeel: Light-to-medium-bodied with a nice amount of carbonation. Drinkability: Good drinkability. Goes down smooth. Overall: Very good beer overall. Id definitely recommend giving this one a shot.

hopscotch (11014) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 12, 2011
Draft CCB Fruit in the Room 2011 Murky, light golden ale with a small, short-lived white head. The aroma furnishes notes of pale grains, bready yeast and a sprinkling of lightly spicy hops, but Im picking up no plantain component here. Medium-bodied with modest carbonation. Perfectly-balanced American wheat ale flavor with no plantain aspect at all. Crisp, clean finish. Quality brew, but plantains obviously dont yield much when used to treat a beer. I sort of saw this coming. I love fried plantains, but didnt think their positive attributes would transfer well to beer. Go back to the drawing board and prove me wrong. ;-)

Tap at FITR. Pours a light gold and murky with little head. Grainy, wheat, banana aroma. Taste has more of the same notes, banana, slightly fiberous with a hint of fruit. Meh.

On draft at Cigar City for Fruit in the Room 2011. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is slight bread and citrus with bananas all over. Flavor is big banana with some plantains and bread and yeast. Interesting balance present here, with the banana showing off, but not stealing the show.

On draft for Fruit in the Room. Was a hazy yellow color with aroma of wheat, yeast and bananas. Tasted like the aroma with spice however the banana flavor tasted heavy, it was like a raw plantain that you would get from the store. It was a nice twist on an old favorite for me.

On tap at FITR. Nose is banana, yeast, bread, sugars. Flavor is subtle, but present banana, bready, yeasty. Not a fan of "banana" beers, but this one was ok.
