joergen (20589) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2005
Bottled. Cloudy yellow coloured with a small white head. Cloying aroma of bananas with acidic notes. Flavour of bananas with citric notes. Weird combination.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2005
Bottled. Terrible artificial banana aroma. Cloyingly sweet banana candy flavour. Undrinkable.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2005 The best thing about this beer is that the brewer uses Fair Trade bananas. It’s just a pity that the bananas are used to make beer. I like bananas and I don’t mind this concept - banana beers are common in parts of Africa. However, this is so syrupy sweet that I doubt anyone over the age of five would want to drink an entire bottle. It looked okay: pale gold, with a tall, puffy head. Good head retention and some islands of lace. Strong, sweet aroma of, er... bananas (similar to banana milkshakes, which implies this uses a syrup or concentrate). The aroma also includes yeast, wheat and sherbet. The palate is fairly flat and sticky, with a faint sherbety character at the back of the throat. Sugar is the dominant flavour in the form of banana syrup. I guess you could serve this with dessert as part of a beer dinner. But I’m not sure your guests would thank you...

Pale gold colour with a slim white head. Smells like banana syrup. Tastes like banana syrup and candy. Medium body. Sweet aftertaste. Not beer.

bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - APR 27, 2005
lots of efervesence when this one is poured champagne like. sweet fruit nose. more on the palate of viscous banana extract and rock candy. not very enjoyeable ot drink. more of a desert wine/beer/drink/contraption.

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 15, 2005
Hazy blond color. The aroma spreads around as the bottle is opened: fruity and artificial; nothing else than sweet banana. Very sweet taste, with some banana corrected by a citrus fruit acidity. Soft drink.

Lunkie (1400) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - APR 1, 2005
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.

Choos (593) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - MAR 29, 2005
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!

Wow that got poured out quick. more diacetyl than banana with infected sour notes and Monkey Piss?

Linc (737) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 31, 2004
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.
