1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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...

Bottle, Passage Cafe, Brugge, Belgium. I like lambics, and I like curiosities like banana flavor. Why not? Smells and tastes like banana syrup. I like the tart stuff better. Still, not awful or anything. Kinda fun.
