11.2 Belgian grenade bottle, which began gushing out immediately upon opening. After getting it under control, it poured a thick, yeasty golden color with a large foamy head. Lots of hops come through in aroma and taste, but the creamy yeastiness keeps it highly drinkable. A very well done beer by one of Belgium’s newest players.

LooseCannon (938) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - MAY 22, 2008
11.2oz Bottled labeled as Extra IPA restyled. 2007 vintage. Pours cloudy golden in color with full foamy white head. Aroma is fruity, yeasty and sweet. Taste malty, piney and very bitter with bitter finish.

vyvvy (4135) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAY 18, 2008
Gushing bottle here ~ only lost a little though. Ends up hazy orange with a pillowy white head. The aroma has a lot of Belgium yeastiness, fruitiness, sweet malt and nice subtle floral hoppiness. Medium smooth body with lots of soft carbonation. The flavor starts with hops that are in no way subtle like the aroma. There is pine floral and earthy hops, but they are quite gentle. The malt and yeast are still very prevalent and add to the gentleness of the overall beer. There is also light fruit and a toasted sweetness imparted from the malt. The finish is spicy and piny with a beautiful lingering quality. Great beer.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - MAY 12, 2008
Draught, Ma Che Siete Venuti a Fŕ, Rome, Italy. Light golden color. Full Head. Smells of Belgian character, with lemon, citrus-like american hops. Flavor is packed with Belgian character, american hops....hints of fruit and yeast. Lots of taste, authentic, unique and luscious. Quality ale.

raiderfost (168) - virginia beach, Virginia, USA - MAY 6, 2008
Very good. Not a big belguim fan but i am ahop head. The chinook and amarillo really balaced out the belguim yeast flavor(usually what i dont like about belguims) Very well done

wacho (52) - Izegem, BELGIUM - MAY 2, 2008
De sterke hoppereuk is aanwezig. Opvallend is de zoete fruitige smaak met een toets koriander en de bekende bitterheid van Alvinne tot in de afdronk

notalush (4999) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 27, 2008
Very hazy golden beer, with a seriously frothy head that continues to grow after the pour - bright and fruity aroma of orange, mango, pear - strong earthy hops in the nose - belgian sugar sweetness mingles well with the fruit character - full but soft in the mouth - really powerful hop bitterness and strong herbal character - the character imparted by the belgian yeast takes a back seat, but adds some fruitiness and light phenolic character that combines really well with the hops and herbal notes - tastes like a really hoppy saison because of this - super tasty.

After tasting the Extra. This beer (tasted on bottle only for the moment) is indeed Restyled. Very nice and a good bitterness

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 19, 2008
(Bottle 33 cl) Courtesy of yespr. Hazy golden with a huge amount of not so pleasant floaties. An extremely lively, rough, white head. Very perfumy, fruity aroma. Medium body with sweet fruit notes, yeast and then unfortunately the typical crude Alvinne bitterness in the finish. 040408

Clear golden with with huge bubbly head. Weak aroma with hoppy and fruity notes. Sweet hoppy flavor with light grapefruit notes. Ends bitter.
