Pours a urine yellow color with a frothy white head. Aroma is overripe banana with some yeasty notes. Flavor is banana. That’s it...banana. Body is a little strange, yeah this is a weird beer.

Clear pale yellow with a frothy white head. The aroma is overripe banana and not much else. If you like bananas, I mean REALLY like bananas, you might like the aroma. The flavor is all banana, no malt, no hops, no sour, no barnyard, no leather, what the hell is this stuff? Eeecckkk!!! Egads save me from this crap!

Pale blond color. Banana candies aroma. Too sweet and artificial, easy to drink but not a beer!

Judging how I rate this as compared to the other reviews of it, I really wonder how anyone could dislike this beer. Granted, I am not a big fruit beer drinker, but some do catch my attention. This happened to be one of them. It poured a cloudy yellow with a nice sized white head. The smell was of bananas, and lots of them. The taste followed with the banana flavor, with a nice balance of spiciness and just a litte bit tart. The finish left me wanting more as this really is a great beer, and one to try to mix things up from the ordinary.

Artificial banana aroma, hazy amber, next to nil head. Some mild fruit flavour, like a banana popsicle. Sweet, cloying, hard to finish.

Crockett (1009) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 12, 2004
Banana wine. Very sweet with piles of banana. Not much fun. Still, hazy gold and syrupy. No Head. Some caramel and yeast. Interest sake only.

Murky dull yellow in colour. Aromas are sweet banana milkshake. Flavours are sour banana milkshake. Great, if you are Donkey Kong.

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2005 This just has to be the most artificial beer I have ever tasted! Golden body with an OK head. Artificial banana in both aroma and flavor. The best thing about this beer is the sour finish. Different and fun but one is definately enough!!

Beer 10 Belgium trip. The wife wanted to try this one, solely because she loves bananas. Light yellow, good head. Overwhelming aroma of bananas. Flavor matches, no beer flavors in sight. Very pure banana flavor. Too bad I hate bananas.
