Brewed by:
Wells & Young's Ltd
England, United Kingdom

Style: Fruit / Vegetable Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Long ago, ale was known as 'liquid bread'. We've used our long history of creating the finest malt blends & added fair-trade bananas to awaken the senses with a seriously fruity, rich, yet surprisingly versatile banana bread beer.

An inspired brew made with our own natural mineral water & fairtrade bananas. Tempting Banoffee aromas & flavors are balanced by the silky richness of a masterful malt blend & the peppery spice of the freshest, ripest hops.

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.
