Do you like Belgians?

Greetings fellow beer-folks! I am looking for suggestions for Belgians to give a try. I am a home-brewer and an IPA junkie (the more hops the better) but I also enjoy pales-ales, reds, porters, stouts, nut-browns, etc. I tend to not particularly like (and consequently avoid) beers that are lighter in flavor and color (lager/pilsners).

I'd love to give some more Belgians a try... but I absolutely loathe the really strong banana flavors that Belgian yeast is notorious for. If you are a Belgian fan, do you know of any good beers in this style where the banana is a less prominent (or nonexistent) flavor?
