8.4 oz bottle which reads FRUBEE banana. Taste is too tart for my liking. I wouldnt be able to drink the whole thing. For such strong fruity flavor they could def sneak some more alc in there. Split with Jredmond.

8.4 oz bottle which reads FRUBEE banana. Pours a hazy orange body with no head. Aroma is banana and some sort of cleaning supply. Taste is wild. Assaults my tongue. Strong fruity taste - almost too strong. Split with Pwn3d.

BottleL Poured a hazy yellow color with a thin white head. The aroma can only be described as bananas. so overwhelming it almost scared me to taste it. The taste is bananas of course but also reminded me of those candy peanuts, weird I know but thats my palate saying it wasn’t enjoyable I guess!

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
8.4 oz. bottle. Pours a kind of funky yellow gold with some floaters and a thin sudsy white head that quickly retreated to a ring. The best thing this beer has going for it is its aroma, which is lots of banana. The flavor is banana and sugar water, way too sweet. I expected some sweetenss from the bananas, but this is over the top. Thin bodied. Tasted more like an attempt at a banana cooler than a beer.

Bright banana-y yellow. All you can smell is banana, all you can taste is banana. Sweet and thicker than it looks. This isn’t beer at all, but despite its way over the top sweetness its kind of good.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I had this at a speciality shop in France and I’m conflicted. I happen to like bananas, and this was a success as a banana drink, but a miserable failure as a beer. Poured yellow, no shock there. Tasted strongly of banana with just a tad too much sweetness. No alcohol flavor at all, nor was there even a hint of beer flavor. Maybe a good desert, but should never, ever, be drunk on a hot day--or when you want beer.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Labelled Frubee. Pours a yellow banana color with some hazy but moslty clear and a thin white fading head. Aroma is striaght up artificial banana- reminds me of banana runts. Sugary sweet flavor with tons more artificial banana. Syrupy yet high carbonation- kinda like a bnana soda, as there was no alcohol present at all. ech. My notes say that I felt like I would get diabetes if I had any more than this small 1 oz sample.

Bottled labeled "Frubee" thanks to dickinsonbeer. Pours a translucent yellow with a very small white head. Aroma of banana, like banana candy. I hate banana candy! Flavor of the same...really not much else, maybe a hint of wheat.

Got the american version called Frubee Banana. I Love bananas and everything banana flavored and this beer definitly smells and tastes of bananas. The thing is it says right on the label "natural and artifical flavors added." And thats exactly what it tastes like artifical banana drink (not beer). It pours with almost no head, can see right through it, may actually mistake it for a light beer by looks alone.
