I own a bar in wisconsin, we specialize in micros and imports. Been doing it as a profession for 7yrs. I am not a beer expert but i know what i like. I like this beer! I drink a lot of jameson. When i want to ease off of drinking or have a relaxed drinking engagement this beer is a go to. Very drinkable and smooth. Not filling can have 3 or 4 in a row and its not overwhelming. Like a pilsner with a banana boost! Not sweet banana flavor its more savory. We do joke and say who put the banana laffy taffy in my beer! Hint of that flavor. It is a must try! Not steering you wrong to the expert and the green horns enjoy!

Poured from an 11 ounce bottle into a shaker pint glass. A moderate pour produces about a one inch creamy white head that settles down to a continuous 1/8 inch froth that coats the sides. The beer is an orange-amber with moderate carbonation.
Plenty of banana bread aroma, with spice, including some coriander. The flavor is even more like banana bread, and I sense a strong base of biscuity malt, wheat malt, and plenty of yeast funk. The banana flavor doesn't come across as contrived and is far from overbearing. Maybe a little apple in there somewhere. Fairly light in body with a crisp finish that includes a little bit of lingering spice and perhaps a little herbal hop bitterness.
A pretty unique brew and worth trying. This four pack of 11.2 ounce bottles was a bit pricy for my budget at over 10 bucks...but, oh well!
