look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Clear golden body. No head.

Smell - Amazingly, it smells skunked. It has the aroma of an imported European pilsner. And some banana.

Taste - Tastes more like banana. Not sour. Quite sweet, in fact. Still has that stale pilsner tastes to it, but much lighter.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Overly sweet.

Overall - Not good.

Pours a nice fizzy yellow amber with a fuzzy faint head that quickly dissipates like champagne. Smells like a typical lambic and tastes very sweet. To me there was not much of a banana taste or smell at all but I really enjoyed the beer. Typcial lambic funkiness and the alcohol is very well hidden. A really good beer if you like the sweetness.

Banana lambic?! Hm, should be interesting.
Pours pale yellow, bit of lace.
Smell of dried banana chips, candi sugar, bit of cidery tartness and floral honey.
Not as syrupy sweet as expected it to be from the smell. Acidity hits at first, with apple cider, faint sour cherries and very faint lemon zest. Banana follows, but green and unripe, not too sweet and sticky. Nice clear Belgian sugars, again, not sticky. Good lambic funk, with mild green notes in the dry finish.
Light bodied, medium fizz, lingering fruitiness, white grape-like dryness and a bit of candi sugar.
A good fruit lambic, tasty natural banana feel, nice balance and flavours.
