KM (416) - TromsÝ, NORWAY - MAR 22, 2007
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)

Golden of color with a white head. An aroma of bananas. The flavor is sweet banana, some hops and malt in the finish.

sayravai (4706) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 13, 2007
(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.

Tranquillity (1743) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 11, 2007
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.

TBone (15708) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 4, 2007
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 ...

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2007
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.

gunnfryd (13909) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 7, 2007
Bottle. Golden/orange colour with a white head. Aroma is artificial banana. Flavour is artificial banana, spices, sugar.

altonbrownd (5288) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - JAN 4, 2007
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.

oh6gdx (24607) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 28, 2006
Bottled. Yellow colour, no head. Aroma is banana. Flavour is very sugarybanana. Almost like having a bananasplit... The first mouthful was the best, after that it just went bad.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 22, 2006
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.
