I am absolutely in love with this beer. It is very sweet and tastes almost like a banana Laffy Taffy.

Judging how I rate this as compared to the other reviews of it, I really wonder how anyone could dislike this beer. Granted, I am not a big fruit beer drinker, but some do catch my attention. This happened to be one of them. It poured a cloudy yellow with a nice sized white head. The smell was of bananas, and lots of them. The taste followed with the banana flavor, with a nice balance of spiciness and just a litte bit tart. The finish left me wanting more as this really is a great beer, and one to try to mix things up from the ordinary.

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2007 Garrafa. Dourada translúcida com creme branco razoável. Drinkable (não é enjoativa). Personalidade. Há amargor e algo salgado. Perfume maravilhoso. Há características de cerveja.

Ótima lambic, pelo que se propõe. Aroma intenso e doce, carbonatação no ponto. Final doce. Grande drinkability.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2008 Artificial banana candy aroma. Look of a ubiquitous pale yellow american clear lager. Very nice flavor, not objectionable in any way. Light and fruity. Easy to accept. Surprized to see they use real bananas in this stuff, it sure tastes more like banana syrup. Easy to gulp and easy to enjoy. Good as any other fru-fru fruity sweet lambic. Lovely sweet and bubbly. No bitter linger at all. Good fine lambic. Unique, with it’s bananas and all.

Gold. Miniscule off-white head. Big banana, some wild yeast-aroma. All banana flavor with some yeast, malt, and sweetness. Medium body with a pleasant carbonation level. Very chewy. After drinking this my mouth felt and tasted like I just ate a banana. I don’t like bananas, but enjoyed this very much.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2011 It’s a banana lambic. It tastes like a banana lambic. May be a bit sugary for some. Sour banana taste and nose. It’s not for everyone. I tend to love De Troch, so I’m going "against the grain" here. Rated 4/4/10

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.

Banana Laffy Taffy in a botlle. I usually don’t like sweet beers but this was amazing. The flavor was great candied banana. The aroma was banan laffy taffy, i kept coming back and smelling the bottle after it was gone. Very interesting beer. Can’t wait to break open the bottle of plum!

Delightful sweet-sour beer with banana flavour. However it’s very tasty I couldn’t drink more than 2, 3 in one time. Also it’s quite expensive here (Slovak republic).
