2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Almost no head, liquid is yellow in color, very banana nose and taste to the exclusion of any other tastes. No tartness just sweetness. I prefer lambics that offer a balance of sweet and tart. If you want to drink a banana, this is for you. If you want complexity, this is not for you. But it might be useful in a reduction for a dessert sauce.
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2017 sweet and sour, candy banana aroma and taste, way to powerfull. no carbonation, no head, but that was intended i presume. don't like it. down the drain it went superspak (5996) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - OCT 14, 2017
375 ml bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy pale golden yellow color with a small dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of ripe banana, pineapple, mango, melon, pear, red apple, honey, candi sugar, wheat, and bread; with light notes of hay, straw, grass, oak, funk, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/light funky yeast, bananas, and pale malt/sugar sweetness; with solid strength. Taste of ripe banana, pineapple, mango, melon, pear, red apple, honey, candi sugar, wheat, and bread; with light notes of hay, straw, grass, oak, funk, and yeast earthiness. Light fruit tang/tartness on the finish. Lingering notes of banana, pineapple, mango, melon, pear, red apple, honey, candi sugar, wheat, bread, hay, straw, grass, light funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/light funky yeast, bananas, and pale malt/sugar sweetness; with a good malt/tartness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Minimal dryness. Light-medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth, creamy, and lightly slick/syrupy/tangy balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 3.5%. Overall this is a very good sweetened fruit lambic style. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/light funky yeast, bananas, and pale malt/sugar sweetness; very smooth and refreshing to drink, with the mildly tart/tangy/drying finish. The bananas are more pronounced in the aromas, but they don't feel overwhelming or artificial overall. Authentic fruit flavors. Very well balanced in the taste with sweetness, fruity yeast complexity, and a touch of funk. A very enjoyable offering. A lot better than I expected. Very pleasing to drink. kamanova_boy (406) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 4, 2017
Bottle at La Putika. Strange smell, banana, clear yellow colour with small white head. Taste of banana, lemon, bit sour, sweet, banana in finish. Poor choice Ysok02 (1826) - Mons, BELGIUM - SEP 19, 2017
Robe dorée, très peu de mousse. Nez sur la banane séchée, la banane et la ... banane. Bouche à l'attaque doucereuse, fine acidité et arômes de banane... Il fallait oser, ils l'ont fait.... et c'est raté. Slotvinskyy (69) - - SEP 15, 2017

Shared from bottle at Maakun’s. Massive thanks to Maakun for sharing this whale with me. Golden with almost no head. Sweet dried banana, overripe banana, light sour lambic, lemon juice, Napoleon sour lemon hardcandy, mild wet cardboard. Over medium sweet and light sour. Medium body, no carbonation. Surprisingly quite nice fruity aperatif, unexpected for a banana lambic. Maakun (6428) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 22, 2017
Bottle shared. Clear golden with a few bubbles. Sweet malts, banana candy, light sugary grain syrup, soft funk and hay with a light touch of puke. Medium sweet and light sour. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. One of the better Chapeau beers I’ve had. SylvainCFC (343) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 9, 2017
Robe blonde translucide, col très court, presque inexistant. Écume. Nez puissant de banane bien mûre, sucre, léger nez acide en arrière-plan. Attaque très sucré, arôme de banane qui prend toute la place avec une légère acidité en arrière-plan. Carbonatation fine assez forte. Bière au fruit commerciale, arôme fruité fort, artificiel comme un bonbon.
