2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Pale golden body. Nice head which didnít last long. Strong aroma of banana or banana liqueur. Nothing else. How do you rate something like this? I like banana, but ... No, this didnít work for me. The flavour is a mix of banana and pale lager. That is not good! Nice try though, it is exciting and all, but you donít always succeed. (Porterhouse Dublin, 16.03.07)

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
(Bottled, 4.5% ABV) Very hazy yellow color with a small, bubbly head. Cloyingly sweet aroma of bananas. Very, very sweet and sugary flavor of banana and pear esters with no finish to speak of. The aftertaste is sugar and corn. Medium-bodied, thick and sugary palate with low carbonation. This is more like a very sugary yoghurt than a beer.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottled. Something weird in the flass, looks like foam or fungus or something.. njaeh probably my own biases. This beer is appareantly made from only natural ingredients, still there is somthing horrible about the smell. First, nice banana. Later, you kind of get the nose going and there it is. Horrible Nordic piss-lager!! Very sweet, itís ok if you eat it with a spoon or normally mix grenadine with sugar for breakfast.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottled, alc. 4.5% (BB 02/2009)
Pale a bit hazy yellow color, small white head. Strong sweet aroma of overriped bananas and candy. Sticky sweet banana flavor, slightly artifical. Drier malty notes in the finish. Way too sweet, very girlie "beer". So fair so good says slogan ... only half is correct ...

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled. A sludgy dark yellow coloured beer with a thin ring of off white bubbles. The aroma is sweet and like cany bananas. The taste is very sweet and very bananay (I know I made that word up, but itís cool). It is sticky in the mouth, over sweet and a bit sickly. At least itís fair trade.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2007 Bottle at home. Orange color. Banana smell is pretty overwhelming. Taste is banana, bubblegum, then turns sour and kicks you in the end. Taste of orange at the finish.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Hazy yellow, no head. Sugery ripe banana aroma. Very sweet-flavored, banana of course... and a bit artificial. Also mild spices and wheat in the background. Oily and sticky mouthfeel. "Interesting", but far too sweet.
