2.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Lolly banana sweet aroma. Clear yellow colour if you don’t pay attention to the susended particles with poor head retention. Very sweet banaba flavour. This beer needs to be compared with the lolly bananas. Fizzy sherbert palate.

Aroma: banana liqueur ’nuff said. Appearance: clear golden yellow with suspended particles. Sudsy head and lazy bubbles. Flavour: sugary banana syrup. Palate: medium to thick and lasting sweetness. WHY!

One of the less offensive beers to come out of Huyghe. I don’t know why they don’t just call it Florisgaarden Banana, ’cause it has all the elements of a Florisgaarden beer, sweet, artificial flavour. I really expected to throw up after having a sniff of this, but I managed to drink the whole bottle without pulling a face.

Bottled. Golden colour. Candyish banana aroma. Super sweet, extremely cloying and sugary. Oh boy, Huyghe really sucks.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bananananananana. Very sweet banana aroma a soon as the bottle opened, Pale golden colour, dissapointing head. Tastes like a beer flavoured chewy banana sweet (candy). In the summer I had some of this well chilled for a BBQ and it was better then. In summary keep it for summer barbies.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured into an official Mongozo (R) glass...clear, banana yellow, silky, snow-white head, good 1/2"...Aroma: banana, banana, banana...plus cream pie, too...not too sweet, a little bready.
Taste: Brisk little blast of hops, tiny bitterness, but great flavor delivery, full-flush banana. Excellent balance, plenty of lush, sweet, malt, just enough tasty hops, light/medium bodied, sweet, tingly, long finish.
Based on an African recipe, made in Belgium, using real bananas, says the label, and so it tastes! High carbonation gives too much a soda-ish feel, could of used a little something else, a little of that zesty, yeasty Belgian goodness. But a pretty nice little banana brew.

Clean banana aroma a la cough syrup les the sugar. If you like banana you might like the aroma of this fruit beer. Very sweet, sugar and bubble gum. Sweet sugary finish. Killer palate. Much to sweet .

Pale yellow color. Aroma of nothing but banana. Bad ultra sweet banana flavor. Reminds me of banana flavored runtz candies.
