Nekronos (3646) - Xalapa, MEXICO - SEP 14, 2006
Nice flavour, and the aftertaste is very fruity. Some do not like it, but I think it is nice. A little yellow and dark in look.

harrisoni (14138) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2006
On tap at Kent BF 2006. Copper colour with thick beige head. Ripe banana aroma. Lots of fruity esters. Good in mouth, fullish and then sweet dried fruit and banana finish. Alcohol is there, but doesn’t overpower the other flavours. It does certainly grow on you after my initial doubts.

Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2005
An orange beer with a huge light orange head. The aroma is sweet with notes of citrus and banana. The flavor is sweet spicy and with strong notes of banana. Reminds me of mashed bananas with cloves. The end has a slight touch of toffee and is quite dry. Weird.

jerohen (2031) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - SEP 13, 2005
On draft at the Arendsnest, Amsterdam. Hazy yellow coloured, small white head. Naturally, bananas are dominant in aroma. Besides bananas perhaps some other fruit in flavour, not overly sweet like some other examples of the style. Best banana-beer i’ve had so far (which, i must say, wasn’t a real challenge).

caesar (5323) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 11, 2005
Draft, Arendsnest. Slightly hazy golden color, short white head. Aroma of banana, bit spicy. Bit bitter and fruity taste, dry. It is not as extremely sweet as most banana beers, so it is actually drinkable.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2005
Bottled. A hazy yellow/blonde coloured beer with a little whitish head. The aroma and taste are more sultanas than banana but neither of them really show themselves that much. The taste isn’t particularly pleasant but it does get less inoffensive as the glass empties. Maybe a little spice and certainly some sweetness. Ok but not to be repeated.

bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - AUG 10, 2004
bottled at gbbf: wanting to try something different (not a cask ale) we hopped over to the international beer and tried this little beer. not nearly as bad as the rates suggest in my opinion. very much a belgium tripel tasting beer with notes of wheat, bubblegum, sugar and BANANA...better then most fruit beers in that the banana is not overpowering and you can taste the backbone of the beer pushing thorugh. not bad. not bad at all.

chriso (7428) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2004
Funnily enough, although I could detect the banana and fruity notes, in the aroma, they did not dominate the flavour too much. Mind you, it was my 13th beer of the night, so my palate may have been a little jaded by then. Quite bitter and slightly sour in the mouth. Nothing very exciting, but not unpleasant. Bottled at the Catford Beer Festival.

Hildigöltur (5103) - Křbenhavn, DENMARK - OCT 27, 2003
Everything in this beer is banana. It's far too overwhelming. They could have made it less offensive.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2003
Smells like urinal cakes and banana lollies. Really sweet. really bad, some bruised banana mixed in there with the sweet lollies, some redeeming sourness and dryness, but no way near enough.
