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.

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.

KÝbt i brugsen i Fensmark, super sjov Ýl, smager af skumbanan, 0.33 liter, stÝvet banan farvet, geuze agtig duft og smag, meget modig at brygge sŚdan en Ýl.

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 Iíve tried yet (and itís not infected!). No lambic here, just plain awfulness. The balance between rotten eggs and vomit isnít that bad though... itís the best banana lambic Iíve drank yet after all.

JulienHuxley (2939) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2014
Bottle. Clear pale yellow pour with 3-4 bubbles of white foam. Aroma of those cheap banana candies you get from coin machines and burnt rubber, some solventy notes. Taste is absolutely horrible, horrible sulfur flavors, artificial banana, vomit (was that mine?). Palate is light, watery and flat but the horrible flavor lingers forever. This is easily the worst non infected/completely wrong beer Iíve had.

translucent hay, thin lacing white ring. Huge fusel sweet nose, honey and sugar, light rind. Flavor is sloppy bottled faro, light sweetness from added sugar despite old earthy must, synthetic through the conflicted sticky but juicy end.

Iphonephan (3041) - McLean, Virginia, USA - MAY 18, 2014
From a bottle shared at the DC Epic Sour Beer Tasting. Pours a hazy gold with an off white head. Flavors of banana bread. Sweet and cloying. Ugh.

I feel like Iím being quite brutal with this rating but this is the first time Iíve had beer Iím barely able to drink. Bottle - Slightly hazy pale golden with a thin white ring for a head. Aroma of rotten banana, bread and yeast. Taste is very sweet sugary start followed by some artificial banana flavour and then some more earthy, less artificial, but over ripe banana flavour. Kind of watery. Lemony, very sour. Thin body, low carbonation, slightly syrupy.. Sickeningly sweet, probably the sweetest beer and perhaps even one of the sweetest drinks ive ever had.
