Would You Drink ‘Banana Bread’ Flavored Beer?

banana-bread-beer

It’s happy hour and I can’t wait to kick back with a refreshing slice of banana bread, said no one ever. Still, it’s almost fall. Nutmeg. Baked goods. There’s something there, probably.

Specially launched for National Banana Lover’s Day this past Wednesday, new Shock Top Spiced Banana Wheat is — like the rest of the Shock Top line — a Belgian style unfiltered wheat ale, brewed with notes of caramel, citrus peels, honey, banana, and spice.

“Very banana which I think is a good thing,” reports Phillip H. on untappd.com. “Hazy as fuck. Banana pudding in the nose. Taste like that, too but finished watery,” adds a guy named AAron.

If nothing else, there’s probably no better brew for “toasting” with. Ahah. hah. ha.

There’s a funny novel about banana’s and their sordid (United Fruit
Company, CIA, “banana republic”) past called THE BANANA MASSACRE which,
along the way, gives a lot of insight to the production and cultivation
of “the blood fruit.” Well worth a read and for a chuckle…

In Germany a popular beer mix drink is banana juice with wheat beer. Guess they got their inspiration from that (and just sometimes I’m even in the mood for it, lol)
