3.35/5  rDev -4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Moderate, creamy off-white head adorns a golden orange body. The head retention is decent, the lacing thin, and glass-coating.

Aroma: Moderate ripe banana esters dominate the aroma. The bread notes a very subtle, with a little caramel.

Taste: Opens with a strong note of ripe banana, this carries throughout the taste. Although the banana notes are omnipresent, they do not dominate the taste, there is also a strong English hop presence throughout, as well as a backdrop of toasted malt. There is a slight toasted malt character which may verge on nuttiness, or perhaps I simply expect it because I like banana bread. Finishes with a restrained hop presence.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, a touch thin, with a bit of rough carbonation.

Drinkability/notes: A not unpleasant example, it could be bette, especially, as others have noted, the base beer was a Hefeweizen or a Weizen Dopplebock. Still, its an interesting beer, and one not likely to be seen often.

Presentation Packaged in a custom 19.25 ounce (an imperial pint!) brown glass bottle with a pry-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

Serving type: bottle
