3.9/5  rDev +12.1%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a 16 oz bottle. Freshness date reads August 31st, 2011. I've had this one before and enjoyed it. Lets see how it rates...

A - The beer is a clear amber color and for the sake of this article, I want to say that it almost resembles overly ripe banana. The head quickly dissappears and whats left sits around the rim of the glass with some lacing.

S - Lots of banana. What else would you expect?

T - It tastes like bananas! Surprise! In all seriousness though, its actually pretty tasty. Sometimes brewers seem to overly emphasize the flavors in their fruit beers. Wells has done a good job on this one, as the banana doesn't over power the pallet. It finishes with a hoppy bitterness which is a nice touch.

M - Carbonation is in check. Light in body.

D - Hefe lovers might enjoy this more than others, due to the banana-like flavors that are often found in such beers. Very drinkable and tasty. Would definitely have another.
