2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. I didnít mind this beer, quite easy to drink and I have a bit of a sweet tooth. Cannot tell if this is artificial or not, or rather that a lot of over ripe bananas have been used. Not much in the way of hops (usual belgium trend) Which makes it a bit unbalanced.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
I know itís fair trade (which I can only surmise has prompted others to be charitable) but this is, simply put, a quite unbelievably foul brew and only the fact that you cannot give a "0" earns it any points. It tastes like the output from from a chemical factory. It tastes like the kind of thing twattish tossers with red braces and pony tales market to happy slap hoodies through youtube.com. INDESCRIBABLE. I could not even force back 3 mouthfuls.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Small fast disappearing head. Color is golden. Rich aroma that is thick with banana. Taste is malty and lots of banana. Quite artificial thoough I must say.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
The combination of banana (smells like artificial flavouring) and beer is not very successful in this brew. The banana taste is too obvious and does not integrate well with the beer. I have already tested banana beer befor, and this one does not belong to the better kind.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pale golden body with large foamy white head. Aroma is full on bananas. Taste is all bananas again, too sweet to drink too much of, well carbonated. Reminds me of those lollies that looked bananas, they were my favourite lollies as a kid but throw them in a beer and it doesnít work for me.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
I have few complains with this beer, but then again i dont really think its a beer to start with. Aroma is wheaty with infinate banana and candy floss. Taste is similar, like a wheat beer with banana essance and loads of sugar.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled, 330ml. Brightish yellow with short lasting white head. With all the blurb about Fairtrade Bananas and seeing the comment below, what you should also know is that you can claim Fairtrade status at 10% usage of that material on the product you are claiming it for. Anyhow I didnít expect it to be so synthetic and cloyingly sweet, which it was. It was so sweet it was a job to tell whether it was beer.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle (from Tesco, BBE Mar 08). Yellowy lager appearance. Artificial banana aroma, like banana sweets or even the foul tasting banana medicines. Very sweet with lots of banana in the mouth this combines with thin lagery feel and a touch of acidity but not enough to cut through the ridiculous levels of sweetness. I didnt particularly expect to like this but had no idea it could be so bad.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Picked up in Tesco Aylesbury 21-05-06, drank last night. Pale yellow coloured, it smells like banana, it looks bananey on the label and it tastes like banana, albeit a far too sweet banana. Could have easily given up half way through this beer, but it was a small bottle and so I ploughed on, this was pretty poor.
