2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a crystal clear, golden-copper colored body with a small, fleeting head of off-white foam. Sticky, thin sheets of lacing break apart and drip down the glass. The aroma definitely shows a strong banana ester presence up front, followed by underlying pale and caramel malts. Bready yeast notes contribute to the beer’s namesake. The flavor follows suit pretty well, but seems mostly artificial. Banana candy, light caramel, and bread dough all make their presence felt. Lightly peppery floral hops come through on the finish. The palate is a little light in body and perhaps a shade overly carbonated, but the semi-dry finish lends a refreshing, drinkable feel. Overall, it’s an interesting novelty, but not much beyond that.

I am not a fan. I had higher expectations. I was firmly let down. It does smell great though. It looks alright, kind of a funny orange color, but the flavor is very weak and kinda gross. Fruit beer lovers may like it.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
50cl bottle. Pours clear golden with a small creamy head and lacings. Nose is banana and malts. Quite synthetic and scary. Taste has a lot of malts, some bread and again banana. One dimensional and artificial , could have been worse though! Medium and smooth palate.

(on bottle) Makes me so glad it´s not all about hops and malts; where would the fun be? Pale, brown, clear and a white head. Very tropic and fat sent, had the beer cold and the aroma got more intense as the beer got warmer. Yet, never cloying, strangely. The taste it self where pretty waterish and sweet. The bananas are present, but a small bitter finish saves the beer as a sesiondrink. Funny.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
58.6 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden orange with a slowly diminished white head. Aroma is sweet and slight rotten banana. Fruity banana flavoured, yet with a vague residual sweetness and somewhat dry and slight bitter. Bitter and dry finish. Slight metallic touch - DNF.

Flaske: Man skal bestemt kunne lide banan for at kunne lide denne øl. Brun gennemsigtig med et lille skumhoved. Kraftig duft og smag af banan, med et meget lille humlebid. Rimelig ensidig.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Amber colour with a small off-white head. Aroma: banana and malty sweetness. Taste: Like a rather watery, metallic, english ale at first, then comes strong bananaflavor and sweetness. You must really be a banana kind of guy to like this beer. Not my cup of tea at all.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2009 Pours a clear copper with minimal white head. Aroma is bananas, bananas, bananas! Crisp mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Flavor is strong bananas and a dry and slightly bitter aftertaste. I don’t know, going from the strong sweet banana to a bitter end doesn’t really do it for me. I was hoping for something with more spice or better balanced. Got worse as it warmed up. DNF.

Smells and tastes exactly as it should, just like a banana. Too dry and highly carbonated overall. The initial banana taste is ruined by an overly dry finish. Excellent banana taste but the finish ruins this beer for me.
