2.93/5  rDev -16%

Serving style : 11.2 oz glass bottle poured for appearance and such

Appearance (3) : Rich, bready looking 2 finger head. Copper, amber hues with low transparency. Good.

Smell (2.5) : Exactly like a banana "runt" (you know the candy we ate as kids?). A little malt. Little else.

Taste (3.25) : A little harsh off the bat with some sour malts, but then the banana flavor comes in ever so slightly and tricks your tongue into believing it's a banana (or a banana runt). The rest of the flavors are mixed in so well but they blend excellent. Smooth and tasty. I'm getting faint monkey bread. Some sour mash. Banana. Cracked barley notes trail off (I'm stretching here).

Mouthfeel (3) : Sharp carbonation with a wet feel. Smooth however a bit one-dimensional. Ends minimalistic and average - but easy drinking.


Overall (2.93) : I would call this a wheat lager with banana notes. The nose is the strongest part of this "banana" beer. It doesn't taste like banana bread, and it doesn't feel like a craft so to speak. It's a notch above the macros and it's pretty decent, but if they marketed it under a wheat beer with banana notes and put it in 12-pack cases I'd be more excited about it (and probably by hype I'd give it a 3.5 or more). If you're expecting banana bread, just buy a loaf instead (or get your mama to make you one). It's probably as close as any brewer has come to it, but it's a far cry from a delicious treat.
