roseannf, wheat beer is beer that is brewed with over 50% malted wheat as opposed to malted barley. I would suggest trying this recipe with Paulaner Hefe-Weizen. It has kind of a banana-like aroma and taste (and is also very good). Now I gotta try this bread too.

Want to try this really bad, but don't know what kind of beer is "wheat" beer? Can someone give me famous brand names so I can buy some??

Your mathematical logic is spot on! This is my favorite banana bread recipe, and I will make it whenever I have the spare bananas. Moist and delicious, fabulous crust. I salute you sir. I also posted this on my All The Cooks App, crediting you of course. :) Thanks for a stellar recipe.

This recipe is wonderful! The bread is moist and delicious and a welcome change from more traditional banana bread recipes. My husband and I slathered our slices with butter, which was not necessary, but really tasted good! I will definitely be making this again!

I enjoyed the flavor of this bread, but I may try putting sugar on the top next time. The beer is subtle, but I can taste it. The texture is amazing.

Why rate something you haven't even tried? If it's too "weird" for you then move on and don't give a rating - especially if you haven't made it. Actually it wasn't weird at all, I made this today for company. Big hit everyone enjoyed it...and not one person thought it was weird.
