Bomber into pint glass
Appearance - light amber, crystal clear, one finger head recedes to foamy cap, sticky lacing
Smell- smells like well....bread crust, fairly strong bananas but not cloying or negative in any way. A bit sweet with spices like cinamon and clove, clean.
MF/Taste - creamy, medium body, tingly and light carb. Flavor, like the smell, is almost a dead ringer for banana bread...impressive. Toasty bread, banana, a bit nutty. Very slight bitter twang on the back end, finished fairly dry.
Overall 4.25 - This beer exceeded my expectations in a big way. The fruity banana flavor is not cloying at all, and the toasty malts are in perfect harmony.

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!
