3.43/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Bottle poured strong into pint glass, but still almost no head and what is there quickly disappears. Small streams of bubbles from underneath through a very clear copper beer.

Nose is almost exclusively banana, as expected, with some nuttiness and bread behind it. I know they use real bananas, but it smells a bit artificial, like a banana flavored ice cream pop.

Flavor is much better than I expected. Initial flavor at least, but it quickly fades and leaves a less appealing aftertaste behind. Better than most fruit beers. Some intriguing pepperiness on the lips.

Mouth feel is really thin, which makes it more drinkable, bit less enjoyable. Would have been better a little heartier and south a more lingering flavor.

3.89/5  rDev +11.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

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!
