look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a growler into a weizen glass
A: Pale orange with initially a one-finger head though that settled almost immediately to ZERO head with no lacing
S: Pleasant banana, bubblegum, wheat, a bit of mixed berries
T: Somewhat sweet, mostly banana, a bit earthy, a bit of bubblegum some nondescript spice. Not much finish
M: Medium-bodied with a pleasant carbonation, a bit sweet
O: This just needs everything to be a bit more than it is. The head needs to stick around longer. The finish needs to make itself known. A bit more complexity wouldn't hurt. I'm glad I tried it as overall it's pleasant, just completely unmemorable

Picked up a can of this yesterday from a local bottle shop, cracked it open and immediately smelled a strong urine odor along with rotten bananas, For some reason I went on to actually taste this abomination of beer, it was like Donkey Kong went on a banana binge and the gave me a golden shower the next morning. Putrid bananas and strong dark urine is all I can think of....but I looked at the bottom of the can once I was done muscling through this beer, since I dont believe in drain pours, and it was canned in July of 2013...7 months ago, I hope thats the problem. If not, I am seriously surprised that this crap came from 6 point
