3.58/5  rDev +2.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Look - medium red color, clear, with good carbonation and about a finger's worth of frothy cream colored foam that dissipates slowly.

Smell - definitely smells like banana. Also smells like there's a hint of spice, like the kind you would get from a pumpkin-flavored ale.

Taste - interesting taste. It does taste like the smell, like a mix of banana and a pumpkin-flavored ale's spiciness. There's a little bit of a bite on the sides of the palate, but that's where it stops, as it's pretty well balanced on the palate.

Mouthfeel - as I'd guess from the frothiness of the pour, it's well-balanced, and leans ever so slightly on the creamier side.

Overall - very good brew. Interesting and good taste.

Smells of Banana Bread. Wells really knows how to get smell down. Feels thick in my mouth and tastes sort of tangy and spicy with a definite aftertaste of banana. Every burp tastes like banana bread. Excellent beer to drink with comfort food like a grilled cheese sandwich. Lower APV than in most beer I'd consume, can drink a couple of these with lunch and not get a buzz.

Trying the wells and young banana bread beer at the Pie Factory in Florance, AL. The beer poured a clear copper with virtually no head and no lacing. The scent is definitely banana bread. The taste has a lighter malt base with banana and hints of spice (clove).The m outhfeel is lighter in body with subtle carbonation. Overall the beer hits the mark as far as taste. ..but one is enough for me.

Purchased at the LCBO for just over $3.00 for a 500ml bottle. Served at 4deg C in a draught glass

A- Opens well and pours a good head that is gone in 60 seconds LOL. Good dark golden color.

S- Excellent! Lots of banana and bubble gum

T- Excellent. Not much bubble gum LOL.

M- Pretty good.

O- This beer relies heavily on the banana undertones. Works for me!

Food Pairing

This wonderful flavored beer went well with... bacon and eggs!

Enjoy
