Nov'12 on tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. I mixed it w/some Young's Chocolate Stout (an old friend) & was a bit disappointed as I thought it would be a marriage made in heaven. Reality it was interesting but nothing to write home about...hence this entry.

I guess I'll leave the blending to the brewers.

07/18/12 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. I like this beer. May be sweet for some, but I don't mind that one bit. Clever & well made. Worthwhile. Maybe not 2 in a row, but I'll have another before I leave.

The bananas in the nose might suggest a tradition hefe, but there's enough malt and sugar underneath to say otherwise; it's more like a banana Popsicle. The taste is lightly toasted malt with ripe bananas and just a hint of light caramel in the finish. Good carbonation give the body a nice structure to enjoy drinking. If you like a banana-taste profile and want more malt and body than a hefeweizen typically provides, this could be an option.
