3.63/5  rDev +4.3%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A- cloudy dark golden, starts out with a head of a half an inch which disappears pretty quickly
S- smashed bananas with brown sugar sprinkled on top between two loaves of bread
T-tasted much less banana than the nose i was expecting more of it i actually find it balanced with the malts giving a sweetness and a slight bitter finish definitely bananas there
M- pretty decent mouthfeel
D- well how many bananas would you wanna eat? you drink this thing one time i cant see myself buying it again although the banana flavor wasnt overwhelming
Overall a very decent brew the only reason i bought it was for the novelty of it you gotta try it once with the expectations of it being an average brew that has a banana flavor

3.18/5  rDev -8.6%
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.
