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.

Poured from a bottle at Lexington Beerworks (KY)

Light amber, clear and high visible carbonation - like an Amer. lager. Decent head and lacing.

Very floral and moderately fruity saison aroma with light farmhouse character, less banana than expected. Over-ripe banana.

Flavor: more banana. Also apple juice. Some tartness but still a bit sweeter than I would prefer.

Light body; medium plus carbonation. semi-dry finish.
