Chapeau Banana Lambic

12 oz, mini champagne, corked and capped affair from Camp Creek Beverage, Atlanta, GA, USA. Dimpled bottom.
Pour is a nasty looking, malt liquor colored, golden hue with minimal head and a LOT of dark golden floaties. Unattractive.
Nose gives off an artificial sweetness, detectable as “fruity” but not especially banana based. The taste reflects this mystery fruit, although it is more banana-like than the nose. Musty, cardboard enters the equation as well.
Cloyingly sweet and not much else. Odd that since the beer is so nastily sweet, it still manages to feel thin?! It’s also cloying, which seems to be an oxymoron when coupled with thin. I dunno, either way it’s horribly disappointing and difficult to drink.
Possible old bottle, BUT with no dates supplied I’ll never know and I feel totally justified in reviewing it.
