From the bottle. Pours amber/copper with a small white head. The head slowly fades and is almost gone within five minutes leaving very little but mainly no lacing. The smell of this beer is exactly what I was expecting and then some. Bananas and banana bread, pretty spot on. Other noticeable aromas are spices. The taste isn't as impressive as the smell but in all honesty it's not blowing me away but I do get a good hint of liquid banana bread. The banana dominates first and is present through out the taste, it's followed by certain malt taste mainly caramel towards the end. A low ABV this isn't a problem drinking. This one is good and pretty much was advertised. Banana bread for sure but at least it's not overpowering in the taste and you can tell it's a beer. I'd drink it again for sure but probably not that often.

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!
