This is my favorite beer of all time, but I don't drink it as often as I would like, so when I do, it is a real treat. The appearance, smell and taste are incredible. It is a perfect blend of beer, banana and spices, and has perfect carbonation. Highly recommended! Give it a try.

I have had this a few times and it seem its to go down hill the more I have it. With that said it was fantastic the first four pack I had. I will continue to buy it when I am in the mood for it but will not buy any to have on hand. Overall it is worth a try.

I like bananas. I like banana bread. I love beer. Will they fuck this up? Surprisingly, no. This beer pours a copper colour with a thick, one and a half finger head that lasts. Smells of banana pudding, vanilla, bready malts, and just a faint hint of pine. Taste starts out like banana bread. Big banana flavours with some malt backbone. Middle has a vanilla and pine flavour added in. Finishes like banana taffy. Mouthfeel is smooth, drinkable and dry. Overall, a beer I wouldn't mind having again.

Poured into a Sam Adams glass

A: Dark copper with low carbonation. Keeps about a 1/3 pinky sized head throughout the whole time. The beer is clear.

S: Banana purée, little bit grainy, and as it warms up there is a note of caramel

T: Banana, malt, bready, light hops, a little piney, and some vanilla as it warms up.

M: slightly dry finish, smooth, light alcohol flavor.

O: I thought this was a decent beer. If you drink it cold it might not have much to offer but the moment it starts warming up you can definitely get more flavors from the beer. I would have it again.

A - beige thick head that is thick like a layer of pudding skin. Color is cedar orange.

S - smells like fake banana laffy taffy ( negative) and banana puddy budding (positive). Only the faintest hop and aluminum smells pop out after warming.

T - initial taste is so fleeting but slightly sweet. Flavors are non existent like water. Only a slight hop aftertaste remains to remind you that you drank a beer at all.

M - so watery. Water with a tiny bit of pudding skin.

D - a beer that would be better as a liquor.
