From 1.1pt bottle into tulip.

A: Light copper, very small but fine head, almost no lacing.

S: Grainy malts, citrus, light banana.

T: Banana is strong with this one, not that different from a Hefeweizen in that regard. Alchohol is a bit pronounced and hops pretty bitter.

M: Thin, with too strong medium carbonation. Not terribly pleasant on the mouthfeel.

Overall I like the banana flavor but the beer is just a bit too hard for the soft banana.

On Tap at Blue Dog.

Wells Banana Bread Beer is a light looking lagerish beer with a hazed yellow color to it and a short lived burst of white bubbles on top, no stick. Smell is what is advertised, banana and a whole lot of it. Some cereal scent after all the hoopla, small amount of grain. Taste is less artificial than expected, i was expecting this to be a sweet sugar bomb, while it's more of a lightly sweet banana infused pale ale without the hops, if that makes sense. Feel is very light with a low amount of bubbled activity, kinda dead on the mouth. I drank it and that's that, not something I would go for again. A bottle of this would be ideal to split with a group of 5 people or so, with a banana infused dessert, or just simply dump the bottle into your next banana inspired dish.
