Roger939 (2) - Etterbeek, Brussels, Belgium, - JUN 12, 2011
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.

Golden Yellow Colour, medium-low carbonation, smells like ripe banana but a little bit too artificial, like banana jelly gums. Tastes very sweet at first, notes of grape and banana, sourness takes over quickly and finishes slightly bitter. This was my first lambic beer, interesting but did not get me hooked.

jacobarts (152) - Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2016
Bottle. Pale yellow, no head. Aroma is dominated by banana, and with some sourness. Taste is sweet, and with some strange bitterness in the end. It was a fine beer to try out, but i dont dig it.

WaddlingPlatypus (153) - Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2016
250ml bottle. Pale sparkling yellow, with a thin vanishing head. Apricot, elderflower, and floral notes dominate the aroma, along with a touch of fruit vinegar. Flavour is shot through with peach notes and the distinctive sharp taste of white bread with balsamic vinegar. Tart aftertaste of apricots. Not much in the way of banana flavours, and most likely a niche beer, but one that I enjoyed nonetheless.

Fed this to my slightly alcoholic squirrel monkey, which shrieked with enjoyment and rated it maximally in all categories, then fell over dead; killed by banana extract poisoning. R.I.P. Robert Paulson.
