One of the nastiest beers I ever had, way too sweet and artificial. If it would taste like real banana, it could be nice, but this one reminds me of the banana flavored and shaped candy I used to like as a child.

Ammazza che schifezza. Sciroppo alla banana che della birra non ha nemmeno l’intenzione. Purtroppo lungo la perigliosa strada dell’assaggiatore di birre si incontrano molte di queste nefandezze.

Bottle to pint glass I’d say fruity esters, but I’m assuming that’s just banana, wheat, a little yeast. This bottle is old, so I’m going to give it a bit of a break, but there are tons of particulates floating around, in fact, there are a ton settled on the bottom as well. Other than that, clear yellow and a creamy white head. Taste is cloyingly sweet banana and some wheat, moving to sour lemon and then ending with a caramel banana. The middle is palatable...the rest is not.

33cl bottle @ home. Very suprizing beer. The taste is too much banana for me.

aronvarga (298) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 1, 2013
Bottle @ Belgian Brasseie Henri. Clear, pale golden color, long-life small white head, strong sugary banana aroma, light body, good fizziness, sugary and powerful banana sweet taste, banana palate without (hoppy) bitterness. Easy-drinkable.

rok1024 (1114) - Maribor, SLOVENIA - NOV 21, 2013
Pale golden appearance, low head. Strong banana and fresh fruits aroma. High sweetness with lacking bitterness. Decent fruit beer, but too much off balance, to be more than that.

R2k2 (338) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2013
Clear yellow lager-like beer with a foamy head. It has to much of a banana aroma which under presses the other aroma’s. It tastes sugar-sweet, and therefore is nothing else to taste. The aftertaste is banana-like. Helder geel pilskleurig bier met een schuimige kop. Het aroma bevat veel banaan, zodat de rest van het aroma niet meer te traceren is. De smaak is mierzoet, zodat er van de rest niet veel meer overblijft. De nasmaak is banaanachtig.

Martinus (2818) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 26, 2013
Clear pale yellow colour, slight white dissipating head. Aroma of sugar, syrup, banana and vegetables. Very sweet flavour, artificial sweeteners. Finish banana candy and vegetables. Not my cup of tea. Not even close.
(From 33cL bottle @ @ decadent symmetry tasting, Wilrijk. Thanks for sharing, Eugene)

Pretty horrific banana synthetic antibiotic taste going on, mixed with bags of sugar, not great. Avoid.
