This is a nice refreshing beer. Unfortunately it doesn’t taste much of banana, more like pineapple to me. It does smell of banana tho.

Nasty fake banana taste, nose, etc. Like those bananas in the Runts candy, only acidic and in liquid form.

Pale orange colour, slightly hazy. Small head. The first thing you notice when opening the bottle is a HUGE banana aroma. But when it gets in the glass the banana is soon overshadowed by the typical lambic horseblanket/barnyard smell. Drinking it is like drinking two different drinks. As long as the beer is in your mouth all you can feel is an artificial banana-flavour but once you have swallowed it there’s that lambic beer again! A bit sweet though. A very schizophrenic beer!

What can I say, I love this stuff. I’ve had friends try it and they absolutely hate it (except 2). The color is that of peach and the aroma smells like banana’s when they’ve turned brown. Not althogether unpleasant but extremely ripe. The flavor is very much like banana with a mild hint of lambic sourness.

When I first (& last time) tasted this beer, i had asked the bardude for the worst and most ugly beer they had. He came up with this one with the question if i was completely certain about my choice. I was. What a sensation, I will never forget this horrible beer. Still 5 bonus points for orginality.

This was a horrible beer. the flavor was way to sweet and there was no carbonation at all. Not a beer worth having again.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Lifeless pour, very pale and clear until I shook up the sediment. Initial banana aroma is well pronounced like banana milk shake, with just a touch of spice and vinegary aroma. Very little carbonation, kind of syrupy. Extremeley sugary with banana and pear candy flavor. Lingering aftertaste is pretty much just sugar. No real complexity and the flavor seems a little artificial.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Banana and citrus in the aroma. Thin. Sweet and a bit sour. Strong banana taste with grape sugar. A bit too sweet, a bit artificial, but with a decent lambic as a basis.
