Pale golden appearance, low head. Strong banana and fresh fruits aroma. High sweetness with lacking bitterness. Decent fruit beer, but too much off balance, to be more than that.

R2k2 (384) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2013
Clear yellow lager-like beer with a foamy head. It has to much of a banana aroma which under presses the other aroma’s. It tastes sugar-sweet, and therefore is nothing else to taste. The aftertaste is banana-like. Helder geel pilskleurig bier met een schuimige kop. Het aroma bevat veel banaan, zodat de rest van het aroma niet meer te traceren is. De smaak is mierzoet, zodat er van de rest niet veel meer overblijft. De nasmaak is banaanachtig.

Martinus (3434) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - SEP 26, 2013
Clear pale yellow colour, slight white dissipating head. Aroma of sugar, syrup, banana and vegetables. Very sweet flavour, artificial sweeteners. Finish banana candy and vegetables. Not my cup of tea. Not even close.
(From 33cL bottle @ @ decadent symmetry tasting, Wilrijk. Thanks for sharing, Eugene)

Pretty horrific banana synthetic antibiotic taste going on, mixed with bags of sugar, not great. Avoid.

KyotoLefty (6964) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 9, 2013
Bottle sampled @ decadent symmetry tasting. Candy banana nose, like I used to get at Easter. Yellow, glowing, faint head. Sweet, fruity banana flavor, lemon. Not a completely horrible beverage, sweet with a light tang. Fake as hell but refreshing.

Has a potent banana aroma but less stated in its taste. Clear yellow with a fizzy carbonated feel in the palate.

KeefOz (1020) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - AUG 24, 2013
Poured a clear pale gold colour with a thin line of white bubbles for a head. Laced OK. No visible carbonation. Aroma of sweet artificial banana – quite subtle. Taste of banana; not artificial but real banana flavour. Banana flavour in the taste is much more realistic compared to that of the aroma. Light body. Finish is long, clean, crisp, smooth with banana flavour. Quite a nice beer, or is it banana flavoured "juice"? Worth trying once.

Bosbouw (1510) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - AUG 10, 2013
Zeer licht geel bier met nauwelijks schuim. Zeepsop. Ruikt naar snoep banaantjes. Smaakt chemisch en naar snoep.

Abijen (1568) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - AUG 10, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2013 Looks like piss. Strnage head. Smells like fabric banana. Tastes like banana soda. Not a beer. Good carbo, thin body and watery texture.
