25 cL bottle. Pours slight hazy yellow with a lacing white head. Aroma is sticky sweet banana - even from a meters distance, it did reveal some lambic notes once my nose had adjusted to the banana aroma. Slight lambic sour note in the start and finish and with a sweet banana flavour in the middle. No bad as such - but I honestly will never return to this.

The aroma is sweet as a banana that that has turned brown. The beer is an unclear light yellow with no head. The flavor sweet with a powerful banana taste. It doesn't have the sharpness nor metallic notes that lambic usually have. In summary it is a slightly acidic boring lambic. The ingredients reads yeast - in my world, that doesn't make it a lambic. If You want a banana beer try George Wells Bannana Bread Beer instead.

(Bottle 25 cl) Pours a slightly hazy golden with a small, white head. Very distinct banana aroma. Thin-bodied with a very, very sweet banana flavour. The lambic sourness is only a vague memory in this beer. A soda pop much more than a beer. 150102

Bottled. Yellowish golden colour, not much head. Artificial bananas with sweetish sourness all the way through, both in aroma and flavour. Don’t ever try to have any kind of cheese with this one...

omhper (21286) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2002
Ugh. Sweet like cloying banana-liqueur, artificial tasting banana aroma. Why do you do this to a lambic?

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

Bottle. A hazy, golden-orange beer with a small, white head. A slightly funky, sourish nose with banana dominating. The flavor is also citrusy and slightly sourish and funky, with ripe banana the most evident. Slightly stingingly sour mouthfeel. Short finish. A really strange one, or at least unusual. Refreshing, quenching and sort of nice. I expected a banana lambic to be a horrible idea, but it works. In a way. On the sweet side though, without it being just sweet. (090430)
