Mongozo Banana

Brouwerij Huyghe, Mongozo Banana

A delightful oddity: its main aroma, by a long way, is banana. Hardly surprising. But delve deeper and you will find aromas of fake banana sweets, then pear drops and bubblegum. In the glass this clear golden beer sparkles with lively effervescence and is briefly topped by a snowy head of foam, although this dissipates with moderate alacrity. The first taste is a huge wallop of candy sweetness and banana. The second too. Its carbonation is full and prickly; as it peaks the banana madness breaks like a wave into a delicate hop bitterness that is drying and subtly spicy.
