2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle sampled @ decadent symmetry tasting. Candy banana nose, like I used to get at Easter. Yellow, glowing, faint head. Sweet, fruity banana flavor, lemon. Not a completely horrible beverage, sweet with a light tang. Fake as hell but refreshing.

Has a potent banana aroma but less stated in its taste. Clear yellow with a fizzy carbonated feel in the palate.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured a clear pale gold colour with a thin line of white bubbles for a head. Laced OK. No visible carbonation. Aroma of sweet artificial banana – quite subtle. Taste of banana; not artificial but real banana flavour. Banana flavour in the taste is much more realistic compared to that of the aroma. Light body. Finish is long, clean, crisp, smooth with banana flavour. Quite a nice beer, or is it banana flavoured "juice"? Worth trying once.

Zeer licht geel bier met nauwelijks schuim. Zeepsop. Ruikt naar snoep banaantjes. Smaakt chemisch en naar snoep.

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2013 Looks like piss. Strnage head. Smells like fabric banana. Tastes like banana soda. Not a beer. Good carbo, thin body and watery texture.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle 330 ml at home, poured into a tumbler glass. ABV 3.6%
Pale yellow colour on the body, with one finger of white, froathy head on top, that disappears straight away, leaving just a trace of lacing on the glass.
Aroma is all bananas, less artificial than I was expecting and less heavy too, not bad.
Taste is full of banana juice and sugars. It begins sickenly sweet but by the end of the sip most of the sweetness has gone away and only the banana flavour stays on the aftertaste. Kind of weird taste overall but I like bananas, so I don’t mind it that much.
Medium body to my surprise, average carbonation.
Overall, it left me with a good impression, I didn’t hold my hopes high for this one but it turned better than I expected.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Opaque lighter yellow with deminishing white foam head, lacing to glass. Aroma and taste are banana dominated (duhh), but still quite nice. Perfect with Belgian waffle. Aftertaste is lasting sweet banana. (Velp 201306)
