Appearance: Clear golden color with a small white head.
Aroma: Sweet banana and some malt.

Overall impression: I do normally like beer with banana taste, but not every one…..
Personal stats: Bottle from workmate Gundersen.

maxwelldeux (3452) - Everett, Washington, USA - APR 29, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear and rather light amber color with almost no head. Nose is extremely banana laden - there is no mistaking the smell. Bananas don’t smell this much like banana. Taste is a little sweet, but not overly so. Fruity and refreshing. Damn.

hoju777 (144) - FRANCE - APR 25, 2013
Bottle from Grand Epicerie. Smells like bananas! Like banana pastel life savers. Clear and yellowish. Tastes like watered down banana water, whatever that is. Soggy palate. It’s good if you don’t think of it as a beer. If it was weird homemade schnaps, it would be good.

Beergeek23322 (2129) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - APR 24, 2013
From bottle just to try it out and I regret that I did. The banana flavors are too sticky and overwhelming to enjoy this. Very sticky sweet finish.

Patrickctenchi (3401) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - APR 21, 2013
Slightly hazy yellow-gold with a thin white cap. Aroma is banana, malt... Taste is very sweet, age-blackened banana....slight tartness...syrupy. Remarkable strong banana taste, just comically over-the-top sweet.

wlajwl (3743) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 12, 2013
Aroma is tartness and a slightly odd banana sweetness. The flavor is fruit, banana sweetness and a sour/tart finish.

Theydon_Bois (7904) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2013
Bottle, thanks to Leighton, split in the confines of J98 LLY in the ’heading home’ mobile tasting event, 23/03/13. Pale golden with a thin white head. Nose is sweet sugars, artificial nana akin to chewy nana sweets, toffee, sweet sweet sweet. Taste is just stupidly over sweet ! Think banoffee pie with a load of sugars heaped on it topped with a Nesquik banana milk shake piled aboard then some more sugars! Medium bodied but sticky sweet and syrupy, lightly cloying. Meh !

dexcansino (424) - Andalucía, SPAIN - APR 6, 2013
Cerveza dorada transparente. Muy poca espuma. Olor a plátano, evidentemente. Sabor aplatanado, dulce y ácida.

Scopey (6147) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2013
Bottle from Dunnottar Wines, massive thanks to Lorna..... It pours light gold with pretty much no head. The nose is sweet ripe banana, banana sweets and maybe the faintest hint of tanginess (perhaps I’m imagining this). The taste is dominated by sweet banana, banana bread and light tanginess with a sweet finish. Light-medium body, lowish carbonation and cloying, sticky mouth-feel. One-dimensional and tastes more like a nasty soft drink than beer......However if you like sweet banana and are a pervert this may be the beer[sic] for you.
