This pours a murky/cloudy dark brown, with low foam. A bubblegummy banana aroma that’s complemented on the palate. It’s tangy, malty, caramelly sweet with a banana flavor. Smooth and sweet with a tangy finish—and deceptive at 8+% abv. Why isn’t this used in bbq sauce? Another good one from the folks at Live Oak.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Copper/brown and cloudy. Very nice foamy head, about a cm thick. Good lacing.

S: Banana, clove, cider, bubblegum. Fruity and toasty.

T: Tastes very Bavarian, almost like a pretzel. Tastes very similar to smell - cider, banana, etc. Roasted malts really shine.

M: Medium bodied, smooth carbonation, a tiny bit of alcohol burn, but overall dangerously easy and pleasant to drink for an 8%

O: Reminds me of a milder version of Aventinus. Tastes very authentic, delicious.

Appearance: Hazy mahogany, absolutely beautiful when held up to a light.

Smell: Banana, clove and awesome

Taste: Words can't describe how good this beer is. I won't even bother trying.

Mouthfeel: Thick and rich and silky smooth.

Overall: I've been waiting all year for this beer and it absolutely lives up to expectations. Hands down the best brew available on the market until it's retired for the season. I'd give my firstborn child if Live Oak would brew this year round.

Poured into a pint glass at Freetail.

Appearance: Light brown with an off white head about a centimeter high. The head fades to a ring around the side of the glass.

Aroma: Bananas, Clove and a hint or roasted grain and chocolate. The nose is dominated by clove and banana. No noticeable alcohol aroma.

Taste: Sweet malt and light chocolate. A little sweet for my taste, but it is balanced with a little spiciness so is not to be overwhelmingly sweet.

Mouthfeel: Thicker feeling than a hefeweizen, but not as thick anywhere near a robust porter. The residual sweetness probably accounts for the extra body. Medium carbonation with no noticeable alcohol feel or taste.

Overall: As with all Live Oak beers it is very true to the style and enjoyable. I prefer some of their other offerings to this one, but it’s still very good.
