4.22/5  rDev +21.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

500 mL bottle, chilled and poured into a steam whistle pint glass.
Best before date: 07/03/12

Appearance- Pours a darker amber colour with a finger of off white head that quickly resides to a very ample ring and a nice bubbly top leaving ample lacing throughout the glass till finish.

Smell- This one actually does smell like banana bread, it does what it says it is and doesn’t hide anything, a nice nutty banana aroma that is not overpowering by actually quite pleasant.

Taste- Wow, I’m actually impressed, this one actually does taste like a slice of banana bread, and I thought it would taste like some crappy mutated version of banana bread; but again it’s not hiding anything and it actually delivers exactly what it says it is going to be.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied with very good to almost above average carbonation this one goes down smooth and crisp tasting just like a slice of moms homemade banana bread.

Overall- When I first seen the name banana bread beer I almost jumped all over it, I thought wow what a cool concept if they could actually pull it off, and to be honest this one has gone above and beyond my expectations coming through and delivering on all perspectives. Thank you to the LCBO for bringing this one in for the summer release because I will be going back tomorrow to stock up on more before they all disappear. A great beer that does exactly what it says and is not overpowering while doing it. Wells & Young’s makes some great almost underrated beers that for the few that I have tried I have thoroughly enjoyed.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Initial aroma and flavor is banana runts. After some time it mellows out to a reasonable banana presence, but the bread part is a bit lacking. Would be nice if this had a bit more of a malt backbone to stand up to the banana -- a bit of roastiness and nuttiness would probably complement it nicely. Still, it's pretty drinkable once the artificial-seeming aroma fades. A decent beer for when you're in the mood for something unusual.

3.41/5  rDev -2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

16.9 oz bottle into a pint glass

A- A clear amber color with a two finger white head.

S- Banana bread, faint hops, some cloves and wheat. Really what you would hope banana bread beer would smell like.

T- Doesn't live up to the nose, sweet malts, some bready malts, faint earth hops, very muted compared to what I was hoping it would be.

M- Smooth, light to medium body.

O- If this tasted like it smells this would be a great beer, but I feel it is average at best. It is drinkable and fairly enjoyable but could be much better.
