Alusmamuts (785) - LATVIA - APR 25, 2015
Pale yellow with medium white head. Probably banana is not the best fruit for such dessert beers. Too many lager on the background and nothing specific from banana on the foreground: just sweetness with some sour notes.

Not really banana aroma, however can feel it rather good in taste. Cloudy appearance. Hard to feel it is a beer.

Maakun (1195) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 29, 2015
Bottle thanks to my nice friends. Clear golden with white head. Super strong chemical fake banana candies. Some sour lemon and sickly sweet malts. Seet and light sour with some chemical finish. Medium bodied. Disgusting.

Syfher (185) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 4, 2015
Bottle of 33cl, in the bottle; drinked @Brassicole 2015. Thatís not a beer, just a drink with an awfull banana/syrup taste.

thirstyrabbit (1320) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 27, 2015
Straight from the bottle. Sweet banana juice aroma, somewhat nostalgic to me. Sweet taste with bananas. Medium sweet, not cloying to me. I would even say itís pretty refreshing when it is cooled. Itís not beer but I will happily drink this.

zvsn (898) - ISRAEL - FEB 11, 2015
Bottle. Hazy yellow with a small head. Smell and taste of banana, candies, very sweet and cloying flavors. Light-bodied, syrupy and not pleasant.

Gurthnar (2643) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 9, 2015
Bottle from Seoul Plaza. Aroma, well bananas, faint beery hoppy notes. Taste also presents a strong banana flavouring, but not overwhelming. Sweetish candyish notes, not similar to classic weizeny banana, but rather similar to our classic Slovak candy banany v cokolade. The underlying beer is mostly lost in the banana. Overall no star, but as far as mass-market fruit flavoured low alcohol beers go, this stands far above average. Acceptable beer, would even drink again.

Donít miss this if you like bananas. If you like beer, drink something else. Sunny label, true, but god, this is pretty awful as a beer.

jjsint (1214) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle from Anglia Wines, Ely. Pours light yellow, a little bit of white head. Aroma of overripe bananas, bubblegum. A bit bready/yeasty as well. Tastes extremely sweet. Nice enough beverage this, but it doesnít taste like beer. Worth trying though, if only for the tick.

g_georgiou (340) - CYPRUS - JAN 2, 2015
Clear yellow body with a large white head that holds for a while. Aroma is strong banana, sugar. Taste is heavy sweet, mainly tastes like a sweetened banana juice. Would prefer it a bit less sweet and with a bit of a bite to counteract the sweetness. Light body, watery, carbonation is soft.
