It has a charakteristish banana aroma and flavor. But I would rather have a banana and a "normal" beer in stead of a bananabeer.

I smell..... banana. Oh my god, loads of banana. It tastes like banana too. There is an aftertaste of beer too. Quite like this. Couldn't eat too many though. This is a unique beer.
AC/DC rocks. Sorry couldn't help it, got the music up loud here!

Banana, banana and banana in aroma and flavor. Funny beer. To much banana, compared to the bitterness. But still very drinkebly.

There are obviously 2 distinct versions of this. I have now drank the cask version at a nearby Chas Wells and it is fairly acceptable, though a pint is too much. There is an initially pleasant though strong Pear Drop/ Banana flavour, then going down the glass this changs to a cloying sweet perfume taste. The bottle is straight into the astringent perfume without the more delicate pear drops

Nice aroma. Bland appearence, dissapointing flavour. Mnassive hints of banana (obviously) in the aftertaste. Novelty beer.

Holy shit! Talk about bananas! This be some weird shit, bock style, dragged through da banana garden. Nice pint bottle for homebrewing, but for this homey, this aint be much more than a one off purchase for noveltys sake...

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A beutiful chestnut brown beer with a fine ligth brown head. The aroma is dominated by banana. The flavor is first banana, then malt sweet, then back to banana, then a nice bitterness, and ending on a long lingering banana note. A great balance and a great complexity in the flavor. A fine and very special beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Subtle hint of banana in nose and flavour. It’s there but not too overwhelming like I feared. Slightly sweet and ok bitterness. Nice balance. Long lingering banana flavour in the finish.
