Poured from bottle into pint glass

Appearance - A nice golden color with a white head that fades to give a thin persistent foam with a little bit of lacing.

Smell - Banana aroma is huge up front. While it is a bit of an artificial banana flavoring aroma, when mixed with the bready malt aroma, it is very nice. The banana, coupled with the breadiness and a little bit of sweet caramel make for a very nice smell.

Taste - Upfront the flavor has a more of a sweet taste of caramel and banana. The breadiness comes in quickly however giving a more banana bead like flavor. While not the most potent flavor, the banana bread persists, but the sweet of the bread flavor fades over time to a more buttery and malty flavors toward the end.

Mouthfeel - A moderate body with a medium level of carbonation. Nothing fantastic, but seemingly quite fitting for the beer.

Overall - The aroma of the beer is fantastic and in some ways sets you up for a disappointment in the taste and feel. I just expected something more chewy and bananay in taste; more banana bread in nature. Worth a try, but not something I would go to on any regularity.

A- Brown, same color as banana bread. Clear, not hazy, decent head retention.

S- Strong banana smell, with a bit of hops and spices

T- Strongly banana flavored at first, followed by a mild hoppiness. Not as much of a spice flavor as I was hoping.

M- A very nice mouthfeel. Full and well carbonated.

O- A good beer, one worth trying, but I don't know if I'll get it again.

Clear, copper-amber with an off-white head, ring of retention leaves a bit of lace.

Definitely some banana in the aroma... it seems real, and somewhat over-ripe. Light breadyness; bit of caramel.

Some underlying banana bread in the flavour, but it's very british (earthy & buttery). Light caramel sweetness, modest bitterness.

Moderate body has a hint of residual sweetness.

Overall it's interesting, but I'd certainly prefer a German Wheat.
