The aroma is much more intense than the flavor. The lambic itself is hiding out in this one. Only slightly acidic as if the banana has smoothed everything out. The banana tastes a little artificial like banana candy (Runts, anyone?). I never thought banana would be a viable option to flavor a lambic, but I guess, when one considers the prevalence of the banana-like flavor of phenols in other brews, it shouldnt be so surprising. Thanks to redlight for providing this off-kilter experience!

Banana Laffy Taffy in a botlle. I usually dont like sweet beers but this was amazing. The flavor was great candied banana. The aroma was banan laffy taffy, i kept coming back and smelling the bottle after it was gone. Very interesting beer. Cant wait to break open the bottle of plum!

A yellow-orange colour with a very small white head. The aroma is that of artificial bananas. A taste of bananas and a lot of sugar. A bit to sweet. (Bottle 25cl)

Beer buddy, Phil, calls from his travels to tell me what he finds and if I want some. This sounded interesting. Banana lambic. Well, I like bananas, so why not. This was pricy but could be worth it. Guess again. It poured a cloudy yellow with almost no head. The aroma was definitely bananas. Well, not so much real bananas as banana flavoring. The flavor was sweet and, surprisingly, had little banana to it. Some said it tasted like Mountain Dew. I didnt get that, other than it was sweet. Shouldnt be surprised. Chapeau has failed to impress.

Weird yellow and orange body. The aroma is bananas and sour apples. There is also an offensive wet dog character. The banana taste is rotten with some lemon meringue. There is also a little hay in the finish. Wow.

(Bottled) Slightly hazy pale honey color with a small white and foamy head. Sweet, slightly sour banana aroma. Very sweet banana flavor with an inch of sourness. Light to medium-bodied, ultra-sweet and sugary palate with low carbonation. A dessert drink for banana lovers.

I did not expect much from this but it was definitely a very positive surprise. The flavor is strongly banana and there is very little head but it last. (Nytt vhn Pommacilta.) Tickles nicely behind the upper teeth. Perhaps not a very traditional "beer taste" but I?ve already had a retry and I like it. The taste dos not have so much banana as the aroma did. A picnic beer. It says on the label that there is 20% banana in the beer.

At first sniff I thought this was going to be a horrible beer. The aroma was rather pungent and sour, but once you lift your nose away from the glass you get a pleasant ripe banana smell - I guess the key is to not stick your nose in the glass. Was very clear, with a golden-orange color and a thin white head. A very pleasant, sweet flavor with a bit of tartness. You can tell this is a banana lambic, but its not sickeningly overbearing. Oh, and for the record... I LOVE banana Runts! Theyre the best ones in the bag.
