Bottle in the car while cruising out of Belgium - March 2013. Pours clear gold with a white foam head. Sugary, rotting banana in the aroma. Hugely sweet flavor, syrupy, with lots of fake, cloying banana essence, rotten fruits, sugar syrup. Light bodied with average carbonation and viscous, syrupy texture. Cloying finish with more artificial banana, straight sugar, light sweat. Bad. Very bad.

Light yellow color with a small white head. Aroma is very sweet with notes of banana and candy. Taste is way to sweet with notes of banana and candy.

Artificiele smaak, echt slecht. Maar dat is bij bijna alle bananenbieren dat ik al geprobeerd heb.

Icedwarf (1230) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - AUG 2, 2014
Helder lichtgeel levendig bier zonder schuim. Smaak is zoet en fruitig, met zoals verwacht banaan. Niet slecht, echter niet mijn stijl. Etiket is inmiddels gewijzigd.

Lovely beer. Big fruit flavour, but I think it overtook the taste. Maybe a case of less would be more here? But I have bought a few bottles and look forward to drinking the rest 🍻

Bottle. Pours yellow color with a small head. Banana aroma and nothing else. Banana flavour with an odd sweet sour side taste.

mcberko (14067) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 16, 2014
Bottle at Delirium Cafe, pours a clear golden with no head. Nose brings out banana and a little chemical quality. Flavour is absolutely vile, with loads of artificially bananas, chemical qualities and fake sugar. This is just revolting. One of the worst beers ever.

Købt i brugsen i Fensmark, super sjov øl, smager af skumbanan, 0.33 liter, støvet banan farvet, geuze agtig duft og smag, meget modig at brygge sådan en øl.

Borup (11318) - Albertslund, DENMARK - JUN 14, 2014
25 cl. bottle. Hazy dark orange colour with a white head. Aroma and flavour of banana, brettanomyces and yeast. Taste just like a "skumbanan"

Bottle (250 ml). Shared by JulienHuxley, thanks! Clear pale straw color with a light ring of bubbly foam and no lacing. Aroma of burnt rubber and banana candy (the hard one). Taste is of burnt rubber, banana candy, rotten eggs and a vomit aftertaste. Light body. Watery. Low/moderate carbonation. That have to be one of the worst beer I’ve tried yet (and it’s not infected!). No lambic here, just plain awfulness. The balance between rotten eggs and vomit isn’t that bad though... it’s the best banana lambic I’ve drank yet after all.
