Clear yellow colored beer. No real head formation, just a few large bubbles.

Smells of toasted grain and wheat brain and very slightly of banana. Additional scent of apple.

Starts out very sweet and tasting of apple juice. Faint banana flavor and some wheat bran. Doesn't taste much like lambic or bananas.

Mouthfeel is light.

Overall this is a glass full of crap. Not going to finish the glass, nasty stuff AVOID!

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.
