look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 1 | feel: 1 | overall: 1

Pours thin and resembles a cream soda

Smells like banana - duh! Sort of has the smell of a belgian ale

Taste is very wattered down. Tasts like a lousy cream soda

This s--t is bananas B-A-N-A-N-A-S. This is the beer I envision everyone being forced to drink in hell.

1.3/5  rDev -62.6%
look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1 | feel: 2 | overall: 1

500ml clear bottle poured into a pint glass.
ABV 5.2%

A - Poured a clear gold to amber colour with a thin to non -existent head. No lacing.

S - Banana candy and a light skunkiness. The banana aroma comes off as artificial.

T - Sweet bananas, light sourness, and a harsh bitter metallic finish. For Banana bread I would expecting more malts and some spiciness here.

M - Heavy, flat, and dry.

O - Drain pour. As much as I love banana bread this doesn't taste good at all.

I picked this up on a recommendation from a clerk at the liquor store...last time I trust that guy.

A: Pours a clear copper/amber color with a thin layer of white foam.

S: Smells like bananas. Could maybe pick up a little malt, but was mostly covered up by bananas.

T: Tastes like miller lite with a banana in it. Nothing "bready" about this. There is a hint of something in the finish, but it never really comes through.

M: Good and watery

D: Maybe the first beer I can remember that I didn't actually finish.

Might be interesting for the novelty of the idea, but it seriously lacks in the flavor department.

The thing that stands out about this beer is the sickly and artificial smell of bananas which nothing to do with the beautiful taste of say Hefeweizen but smells and tastes chemical sweet and sickly.

In short this beer is entirely hampered by what it purports to be - Banana bread beer!
