Almost no head, liquid is yellow in color, very banana nose and taste to the exclusion of any other tastes. No tartness just sweetness. I prefer lambics that offer a balance of sweet and tart. If you want to drink a banana, this is for you. If you want complexity, this is not for you. But it might be useful in a reduction for a dessert sauce.

(bottle - corked & capped 750 ml) Orange pour with a fizzy white head. Tart but sweet and fruity at the same time. Nice earthy funk to it. Flavor begins with a sweet fake banana note but then moves to a dry and slightly sour middle and finish. I kind of liked it.

Bottle of 25 cl, in a Trappist glass. It’s a good beer for those who wants limonade beer... Taste of artificial banana, nothing more to say. Try it if she’s free...

AirForceHops (3509) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 14, 2014
Bottle. Pale gold color, fast dying bubbly head. The aroma should some promise and then went south very fast. Nose is ripe banana peels and candy sugar. And a Laffy Taffy candy note.

Flavor is artificial banana runts, sour lemon hints, sugar and saccharine with a cloying finish. So artificial it is simply bad, really gross.

Bottle at Another Tasting, hosted by MrHangover. "Thanks" Aroma of banana, glue, rubber and raisins. Flavor is very sweet, fruity and artificial. Very bad.

MrHangover (2726) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 7, 2014
Bottle @ Another Tasting, courtesy of kermis. Pours a clear golden beer with a very thin head on top. Aroma of mashed banana gum, plastic and chemicals. Flavor is pure banana mixed with acid.. Probably the brewers were on acid while brewing this..

kermis (5729) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 7, 2014
Bottle shared. Pours clear golden with a small off white head. Aroma of sickening fake cloying banana, rotten fruit, garbage, almost makes me gag smelling it. Flavor is heavy sweet. This is disgusting.

Leighton (11855) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2014
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.
