Poured from the bottle into a Sam Adam's Perfect Pint glass.
A-Medium dark amber with a tan head and very pretty lacing. Very clear.
S-The nose is heavy on the banana. Just like a banana popsicle mixed with beer. I loved this part.
T- Not what I was expecting. The banana did not make the beer sweet, like one might expect. There is just a small banana taste in front, and a hopsy finish.
MF- Kinda creamy, but not too much so. Prety standard ale, really.
D- Meh. Not hard to drink, but I don't feel like I want to pop another one any time soon.
Overall, this is a nice novelty brew, but it's not even the best beer I've had with bananas in it (I'm a huge fan of dunkels)

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!
