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 donít mind it that much.
Medium body to my surprise, average carbonation.
Overall, it left me with a good impression, I didnít 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)

bottle @ delirium cafŤ , Brussels. se cerchi una cosa che assomigli alla birra e sappia in maniera decisa di banana, eccoi servito. Ť dolce, quasi frizzante e di corpo quasi inesistente, si beve come líacqua. Ť una bibita, ma quando la prendi lo sai!

Unsurprisingly banana coloured pour with a frothy white head. Aromas and flavours: Banana, candy floss, artificial sweetener, sticky sweet. Drink it very cold and very quickly and it can be kind of enjoyable. Let it warm at all and dispatch down the drain. This lot really isnít for me, however the banana is better than the mango and coconut.
