Was really excited to give this a try as I love the smell and taste of bananas. Read the label and noticed that this is the same company that produces the Double Chocolate Stout. Hmmmm. I was disappointed in that one. Would the same apply here? Meaning would I be let down by the promise of flavor? Popped a bottle in the fridge and poured it into a beer glass. Nice 2 finger head that has some nice lacing as the head dissipates. I noticed the foam keeps throughout and never totally disappears. The color is a nice flat blondish orange. Clear looking. Has a faint smell of bananas that is artificial. I wish the smell was more pure. The taste has a very faint sweetness to it and the fake banana flavor comes through at the finish and lingers a bit. The beer itself has no body and is quite thin and watery. What happened to the "liquid bread" they were talking about? This is an easy beer to drink and I could probably have 2 bottles easily but I was disappointed in the overall taste. When I drink a flavored beer I want it to taste like what it is advertised. Towards the end I added some Dekuyper Creme de Banana just for kicks and the taste elevated to a new level. Granted it was still fake, the sweetness and the banana "flavor" was enhanced. I think this is a nice beer for women. (My wife liked the taste). I liked it ok, just wished it was more true and flavorful.

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 !

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
