duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2007
Bottle. Quite yeasty and soft on the tongue. Soft citrusy flavours and a subtle sweetness, but otherwise not much happening, at least it was a little bit refreshing i suppose.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2007
UPDATED: APR 18, 2007 Bottled at Chris_O Fest March 2007. A straw coloured beer with whitish bubbles for a head. The aroma is lemony, wheaty, spicy and fizzy. The taste has lemony flavours and phenols. Much too highly carbonated. A bit odd but interesting flavours.

schuimkroaat (427) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAR 29, 2007
33 cl bottle, ’bbe’ June 09. Light blond with a moderate turbidity. Tiny yeast flakes, big fluffy head. Light hoppy but foremostly sweet, dense, a kind of flowery-herbal aroma. Strongly carbonated; thick, round body. Sweet, light sourish taste flowing into a strong hint of fruit candies. There is a hop touch.

sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 16, 2007
(Bottled) Slightly hazy yellow color with a medium, foamy and white head. Fruity-spicy aroma of ginger and apricots. Ginger-spicy, wheaty flavor, somewhat like the Swaf! brews. Not much malt or hops - or they’re hidden behind the exotic roots. Fortunately, so is most of the alcohol. Light to medium-bodied, neutral palate with foamy carbonation. Not at all cloying like the banana version, and even refreshing, if you’re a fan of gingery flavors.

omhper (23678) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 13, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2007 Bottled at Monk’s Café, Stockholm. Hazy pale golden with some sediment and small creamy head. Dryish with vanilla and dough. Very light bodied with clean mouthfeel. Despite a touch of metal it’s actually refreshing, seemingly witbier based. Low bitterness. It was a surprise for me that I actually liked this beer - usually I frown upon Huyghe’s mega-sweet beers.

altonbrownd (5768) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - MAR 8, 2007
Bottle at home. Fruity scent. Little head. Orange, sweet and strong alcohol flavour. Sugary, caramel flavour. Better than the banana one but still very suspect. Not my thing.

BINGEBOT (240) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2007
Sweet and spicy scent, very different.. orange and hazy (floating particles) in colour with white head. Tastes of HP sauce..?? Fruity and sweet. Very odd. Pleasant though.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2006
Pale gold with a huge frothy head. Lots of yeast floating in it which means the aroma is yeasty and leathery. I quite liked the taste; it was much better than the Mongozo banana. It’s basically beer ’n’ tonic: sour at first with a pleasant, unusual, non-hoppy dryness. It’s not bad.

At Smokeless Joe’s. Grainy though it is a plant. Good yeast and a plant beer, farmhouse aroma, abundant yeast and a unique Belgium. Smooth though drying finish
