0,33 bottle from some store. Pours golden with a small white head. Extreme sweet and fake aroma og bananas. Very sweet and tastes like rotten bananas. Terrible stuff

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2016 Yellow color, small head, disappearing. Aroma of banana, quite fake. Taste is banana too, but not too sweet. But I cannot consider these beers, with fake aromas.

jfb (5297) - Freising, GERMANY - APR 25, 2016
(bottle) slightly opalescent golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of banana, caramel and bubble gum, with lots of gletschereis and some digestives. favour is mostly banana and vanilla, very sweet, with more bubble gum, some cherry juice and a semi-dry finish. light-bodied with lively carbonation. rather pleasant in a stupid way ...

Oh my, where do I begin???? The observant side first... Served in a tulip glass from a bottle. Pours clear golden with almost no head. The aroma is very strong, almost artificial banana and nothing else. The taste is very, very sweet, almost sticky and sickly banana with nothing else left to detect as the taste buds are just simply put to sleep by this sticky sweetness. The mouthfeel is sticky and lasts far too long. Now it is getting personal... This beer represents nothing of a beer! It is very wrong on so many levels and the only real feed back I have is "Yuck, Yuck, Yuck!!!"

Strong banana flavour, a bit too sweet. Slightly odd mix of flavour to it that doesnít quite work but not unpleasant. Similar lingering flavour to actual banana. Gets tastier as you work through it.

Pours golden with a thin white head. The aroma is that of a banana milkshake. Very very sweet, like a strong banana milkshake. Bit too sweet.

ElDesmadre (2941) - Mikołůw, POLAND - DEC 28, 2015
Bottle. Excessice sweetness coupled with excessive banana aroma. Only a faint, astringent bitterness in the finish serves as a reminder that technically this is a beer. I like banana juice, so it wasnít bad.

33ml bottle. I drank this at a wedding because they only options were this or San Miguel. No idea why! So I tried it for "academic" purposes. Holy crap is it sweet! Tastes like banana candy and cough syrup. Really, itís barely a beer. Basically itís juice. Not nice, but you know, at least itís more interesting than crap lager. Also, genuine LOL at the rating of a 4 on here.

harrisoni (16728) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2015
Bottle from Terre de Boissons Calais and drunk at home. Clear pale gold colour thin white head. Sweet banana aroma, like banana sweets for children. Itís vaguely better in the mouth. Finish has more ripe banana. Itís actually reasonably drinkable if you can get past the aroma.

Derbeth (646) - Krakůw, POLAND - AUG 10, 2015
Bottle. Gold colour, clear, small head like in a soft drink. Aroma is very intensive banana juice, lemonade, bubble gum. Sweet, no bitterness. Lively carbonation. Quite ok, but it does not taste like a beer.
