Nose of banana which is strong. Cloudy yellow color. Taste like banana and spice. Clean finish. This is a big miss for me. I'm a big fan of urban chestnut but this is not my taste. Too fruity with all the banana flavor.

A- A cloudy pour from the 500ml into a small becher with a tiny white cap. The frothy head falls fast and lacing is very rare.

S- Fairly mild and straightforward. Hints of banana, apple, pear, pepper, pils grain, bread and vanilla sweets.

T- Follows the nose again with a spicy approach and mild grains. Pears, apple, slight tart lemon zest, corianer, pink peppercorn, raw pils grains, wheat bread, vanilla sweetness, clove and phenolics. Spicy hops.

MF- Smooth and silky body. It lands with a medium thickness and high end carbonation. Zesty lighy bitter ending.

Profile is mostly about the pale fruit esters and a spice from the yeast and hops. Mild and the fruits are a bit much for the style.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.75

A mostly hazy, deep blonde color with light effervescence spiraling up. Head starts at 1 finger but recedes rather fast to a thin ring.

Aromas of some artificial banana liqueur, clove, and yeast.

Flavor has some interesting honey notes, soggy graham cracker. Following with chewed juicy fruit gum, phenolics, and lactic sourness. Just kind of odd and not to style exactly. Not much in the way of real character as far as yeast and hop go, and overall it just kind of tastes sickly. Gets real old, real quick.

Feel is clean and creamy, with a nice grainy finish.

Overall, this could have been a much better beer. I think it's unique, but not necessarily in a good way.

Not bad but not blowing the doors off either. Kind of has a rusty smell and initial taste. But the taste is better as you get through the first pint. It says there is a hint of banana but i dont taste it. I would say its the poor mans hacker pschoor but its more expensive for this than the hacker pshoor here.
