Good fruit beer with a nice crisp banana flavour. Donít drink it if you donít like fruit beers, dummy!

Bottle. Virtually no head, MGD color. The best way to describe this stuff is "Banana Runts". Remember that candy back in middle school, that was made by the same company as Nerds and Gobstoppers? Yup, itís the worst of the Runts flavors. I remember eating the stuff and Iíd go for all the strawberry, orange, cherry, and lime ones but Iíd leave a bag of all-banana at the end. Thatís what this tastes like, pure candy. The aftertaste is of cookie dough. For all this, it still isnít outright offensive, so I donít think it deserves the dreaded oh-five - itís just that this is about as lambic as I am Japanese.

Oh, I wish I looked this up before I grabbed every flvor! Ugh, not good. I agree , this is a mix of BMC crap and a banana.

12.7 oz bottle from Schneiderís on Capitol Hill. This is the first beer Iíve ever not been able to finish. It tasted like Coors Light blended with several banana BB Bats. Iím lucky my wife didnít leave me after I gave her a sip.

How to make chapeau banana: Take a blender, insert half a can of budweiser, one bottle of any flavor boones farm wine, and 6 banana laffy taffys. Blend until a fine liquid. Pours light with some head. Smells of banana laffy taffy. tastes like a bad banana wine cooler. Try it for a laugh.

12.7 oz. bottle from Mr. Liquor. Pours orange/yellow with minimal head. Strong aroma of banana, pineapple, apple, and pear. Flavors of the same. Very Very sweet.

TheBeerGod (5870) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - APR 23, 2005
Bottle - corked and capped. Pours hazed gold with a small white head. Nose is unmistakably banana. Thereís no confusing it. Light tartness, sugar and the faintest of wood notes. Taste is very sweet! An odd banana, yeast, tart fruit, light wood and maybe hints of caramel. Tastes like a tart banana liquor or maybe a "dirty banana" mixed drink. Body is light and bubbly with more sticky sweetness than dry, acidic tartness. Finish is more banana, light wood, some sugary notes and tart fruit. I wanted to hate this more than I actually did. Itís not that good and is not a "lambic" but itís drinkable.

Holy crapola batman. More overly sweet and fake crap in a bottle that is an utter disgrace to the Lambic name.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - APR 14, 2005
Corked bottle: Clear amber. Small soda like head. Smells of over-ripe banana, and candy. Very artificial flavor, super cloying, not very enjoyable. One dimensional, and oh so sweet...Stick with real lambic like Cantillon...

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - APR 2, 2005
