Grumbo (1340) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2016
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours hazy golden colour with a small white head. Aroma of banana, somewhat sour. Medium sweetness, light sourness to taste. Light body. Not to my taste but mrs enjoyed it.

WaddlingPlatypus (128) - Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2016
250ml bottle. Pale sparkling yellow, with a thin vanishing head. Apricot, elderflower, and floral notes dominate the aroma, along with a touch of fruit vinegar. Flavour is shot through with peach notes and the distinctive sharp taste of white bread with balsamic vinegar. Tart aftertaste of apricots. Not much in the way of banana flavours, and most likely a niche beer, but one that I enjoyed nonetheless.

mmahut (1843) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 3, 2016
Bottle. Pours in almost clear pale body with low white head. Aroma has strong bubblegum banana sweetness, artificial. Taste has piss like artificial banana sweetness. Oh god what I am doing with my life. Body is full, no carbonation, sticky.

Fed this to my slightly alcoholic squirrel monkey, which shrieked with enjoyment and rated it maximally in all categories, then fell over dead; killed by banana extract poisoning. R.I.P. Robert Paulson.

Beerhunter111 (16795) - Hasborn, GERMANY - JUN 14, 2016
25cl bottle. Pours almost clear deep golden colour with a small white head. Aroma of very sweet banana juice, no beer. Taste of very sweet banana and mild tart fruits, strange!

JefVerstraete (2882) - Oosterzele, BELGIUM - JUN 5, 2016
Bottle. Orange colour, almost no foam. Very sweet nose of banana candy, sweeteners. Very sweet. Disgusting.

1/IV/16 - 25cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker) @ home - BB: 17/IX/17 (2016-300)

Clear blond beer, small irregular white head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: lots of ripe banana, baked banana, sweet, little funky. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: surprisingly sour start, citric acidity, bit artificial banana flavour, very sugary sweetness. Aftertaste: citric, banana candy, lemony, little bitter, some green banana. Way better than expected. Was really fearing the worst, here.

Zilb (170) - Fontenay Sous Bois, FRANCE - JAN 2, 2016
Arôme chimique type Banane Bam’s. En bouche, douceur et banane (moins chimique que l’arôme). Final légèrement acide et laisse un gout de peau de banane bien mûre (le côté chimique a disparu) : agréable.

chromeotaphor (148) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 21, 2015
Voor de gein dan.. Zoetige bananengeur, doet ietwat snoeperig aan. Lichte troebeling maar vrij helder. Nauwelijks tot geen schuimkraag. Teleurstellend zacht nauwelijks sprankelend en zacht van smaak. Maar al met al heerlijk drinkbaar als het koud is. Geen diepgang. Lambic achtig.
