    Have you tried Kriek, Framboise or Fruli?

    In a word, no. I'm loathe to buy a bottle that will be wasted if I don't like it after one mouthful but will always try something new if someone already has it. Loving spiced plum cider at the moment.

    Unfortunately I wasn't smoking a cigar but I did think it may go very well with one and is something I plan to try very soon. I would be interested to know if others have tried this beer to accompany a cigar.

    I think I might have forgotten to say Hi (so "Hi!"). I saw this banana beer in Johnny Thunder's what's smoking today post and did a double take. I'm very partial to a piece of banana bread, MLW makes a very good one - but in a beer, I'm cautious but game.

    That said, without meaning to gross anyone out (well, maybe a bit for humour), I'm kinda off bananas as they anaesthetised my throat with some heinous lidocaine/"banana" horror on Friday prior to an EUS (did get to see my own aorta and pancreas from inside me, kinda cool) - when the memory of that taste fades, I'll see where a Big Tesco Peruse takes me.

    Belgian fruit beers actually taste strongly of the fruit they advertise, as the beer is steeped in real fruit. If you like sweet and fruity then IMO they are a step above the currently popular cordial ciders as I call them.

    Slightly off subject, I saw one of those plaques that women seem to love the other day that read 'Never look someone in the eye when eating a banana'

    Recently had a bit of a session with some friends where they had banana bread beer on tap. By the 5th pint it becomes a bit tricky...

    Yep, tried it. Yep, it does taste bananaish. Nope, wouldn't try it again.

    Would it go with a cigar? A bit too dessertlike for a Cuban IMO.
    If you want to, you can.
    And, if you can, you must!

    PeeJay,

    If you're into sweet stuff,

    Try Angry Orchard cider - available, bottled, in Tesco. Really sweet, easy to drink and very very moreish when ice cold.

    Discovered it a while back in a little microbrewery where they had it on tap. Later found most witherspoons have it on tap now too.
