look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25
1pt 0.9oz bottle poured into a tulip.
A - Light amber with golden hues, perfect clarity. Medium sized white head holds a cap of foam. Left some patchy lacing.
S - Definitive banana but also underlying green apple. Banana runts and brown sugar.
T - Mild toasty malt early. Small on sweetness. Banana and clove phenol midway. Has a carbonation bite and some earthy hop bitterness leaving me with a dry mouthfeel.
M - Medium-light body, medium carbonation, dry.
O - Good looking brew not necessarily the color of banana bread. Smell is alright but artificial at times. Not really imitating a slice of banana bread. I do appreciate that the beer has beer quality but I think it could work better with a smoother/chewier feel and a touch more sweetness.

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!
