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...

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled. Golden/copper colour, almost no head. Banana and fir needle aroma. Very, very sweet. Taste includes banana, cork, fir needle. Almost no tartness, cloyingly sweet. Normally, I hate weizen mixed with banana juice, but now I´d say it´s better than this.

Banana and citrus in the aroma. Thin. Sweet and a bit sour. Strong banana taste Very sweet, a bit artificial, but with a decent lambic as a basis. Quite different thats for sure.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Before opening the bottle, I was doubtful: a Lambic can taste awful, matching fruits with beer is not always successful, and banana taste and smell can be quite sickenig. But I was wrong on this one : no head, pale yellow body, not fizzy at all, but nice to drink. But here is the catch : it shouldn’t be called a beer at all ! Call it a summer drink; a shandy, a fruit drink, but not a beer ! Other wise nice drinking, but I shouldn’t be rating this one on a beer site.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bought in the bottle from the excellent "Beers of Europe" shop near Kings Lynn.
Quite a nice Bananary flavour but way too sweet. A bit like drinking a fizzy banana Smoothy with extra sugar.
Pretty weak in alcohol, couldn’t really tell it was beer at all
