|Tasting:||Hazy light tannish color due to the unfaltering. Did not put it in a secondary fermentation, should had to make the brew clearer and to get the banana sediments out of the brew. However, the brew it self turned out to be an excellent smooth and light body feel, with a scent of banana and maltiness. The taste was one that can be enjoyed over and over.|
