I recall back in the late 60's when I spent several months in Germany, they had a beer they called banana beer and it did taste like banana. I always had a headache the day after drinking that beer.

I have had banana beer, but not in Germany - in India. It was disgusting. The pineapple beer wasn't much better. I never drank enough of them to suffer any ill effects other than revulsion.

I never cared much for it.  But I was in my 20's and had one on three or four occasions when others were having it.  By then I figured out that it was the beer causing the headaches the next day.
