1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Aroma of banana extract, like banana flavoured medicine. Flavour slightly less banana-y quite sweet bready malty, although some bitterness in aftertaste. I really really didn’t like this and struggled to finish the bottle. Yeuch.

A very strange beer indeed! Amber color with small head. A hint of banana in the nose wich becomes more dominant as you "tune in" to it. In the flavor the bananas are more dominant. It is an interesting mix, but not a beer i would buy again...

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
One pint brown bottle 5.2% Vol. Poured a clear ruby with quickly diminishing off-white fizzy head. Banana vanilla malty aroma. Bitter banana unbalanced flavour, slightly sour. Needs a little sweet spice. Watery mouthfeel with short bitter finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2013 Bottled. Better than expected beer as the aroma is quite heavy with bananas. The colour is brown but is heavily carbonated and does not have much head. The taste is very pleasant with again bananas coming through together with a light maltiness. Definitely different but drinkable. Score 3.5
Subsequent rating scored 3.1. Average becomes 3.3

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amber color; persistent perlage. Obvious banana aroma, with vanilla, malt, flowers. Dry, a bit metallic, smooth in the beginning with a light maltiness, but harsh on the tongue at the end; maybe too bitter final. Original beer; thanks Jens (Ungstrup).

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottled. Well it certainly smells like bananas alright. I’d have to go with chris_o’s thinking on this one, you either like it or you don’t. This beer should be tried in isolation and if possible, with 4-5 friends to help you share the bottle. Sweet and syrupy, aldehydes are fly from the beer, giving it an artificial and chemical feel.

I suppose you either love this or hate it. I guess I just like my beer to taste of beer, not bananas. And it isn't just a hint of banana - it is very intrusive. And very sweet too. And finally, I don't really like bananas anyway. Extra mark to the brewer for bravado though. Bottled, August 2003
