I think that the most important aspect of note with this beer is that even though it's billed as a "banana bread" beer and flavored with bananas, it comes across very similar to a Belgian pale ale. The banana comes across pretty much identically to Belgian yeast. Not as hoppy as a BPA, but otherwise very similar in balance. My only knock on this is the incredible thinness.

Pours with a large, white head. Has a very clean amber color. Has an actual banana bread aroma mixed with a hoppy aroma. Initial taste is of banana bread immediately followed by hops and a hint of alcohol. Well done, Wells. Well done.

Medium amber color with short lived head and lace. Deep aroma of ripened banana with a backbone of biscuity richness. The banana isn't overbearing in the taste, but blends well with the slight malty base. Mouthfeel is bubbly with a buttery texture. Overall its a pretty balanced brew, although I'd like to see what this one would be like on nitro.

I'm usually skeptical of most fruit beers, and I'm not a big fan of bananas, but this is pretty good. I thought it tasted more like oatmeal with bananas, but nevertheless it lives up to the name.
