3.35/5 rDev -3.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
Poured into an imperial pint glass.
A: Clear, orange-brown color with a small, fizzy white head.
S: Very strong, sweet banana aromas... and not a whole lot else. It's almost like I'm inhaling a banana popsicle.
T: Again, strong banana character in the taste. Actually, if not for a few flashes of maltiness in some of my burps, I might have mistaken this for a banana-flavored malt beverage. Becomes slightly more balanced as it warms.
M: Fairly light feel, which surprised me a bit, based on how it was pitched on the label. Part of this comes from its high carbonation level. Finishes fairly clean.
D: If you like the taste, this is easy drinking. Goes down nice and smooth.
This was a beer that upon my first sighting it in my local beer joint, I promptly scratched my head and said "What the...?" It was quite an interesting concept and a pleasure to try. My two main gripes: 1.) A heavier mouthfeel seemed more appropriate to me. 2.) TOO MUCH banana. It has a good base, but some more balance would have been nice. Still, the novelty alone makes this worth trying.

Purchased in Canton at Holiday Market
A: pours a faint orange with a carbonated head that dissipates fast and leaves zero lacing. Active carbonation and holds a small ring of head thru the experience. Nothing spectacular.
S: Best part of this beer is the smell. Fresh baked bread, crystal malt, and of course B-A-N-A-N-A-S.
T: Thin candied malts... bud light esq funk to it.. artificial banana mostly, but tastes much much better a bit warmer. Out of the fridge its crisp and tart. Light and very carbonated. Not too bad.. but dissapointing to me. Wish it had more body and fullness. Its just too... thin and simply... lacking.
M: Not much here, comes and goes. Thin and crisp.
Overall wish this beer had more depth and flavor. Too crisp and clean! But its worth picking up to try.. definitely a good beer, just wish it was an outstanding beer !

3.84/5 rDev +10.3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75
A: Yellow golden with a kind of dark red hue to it. Lacing is awesome.
S: Banana definitely. Some candy and light malt as well.
T: Banana bread, wheat, nutts, butter, honey, and spice. An awesome taste in my opinion.
M: Lighter side of medium with a nice creamy feel. Goes down so smooth.
O: Though the beer has not-so-good ratings; I like it a lot. It's a solid brew that is good for just relaxing and enjoying a nice flavor.
Serving type: on-tap
