Do you go bananas for beer? Well, how about bananas in your beer? The brewers at Charles Wells seem to have done just that with their Banana Bread beer, and the tasting experience seems like an adult version of something out of Willy Wonka's factory. The aroma is simply bursting with banana, fresh and ripe and ready to eat. The flavor follows suit initially, with massive bready and banana flavors so pronounced, you can almost taste the walnuts. It takes a second or two, but Banana Bread ultimately reminds you that it is a beer, finishing slightly dry with mild bitterness and understated hop flavors of flowers and spice. We're not sure how many of these you'll ask for in a sitting, but it is certainly an experience worth every sip.
