beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 21, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2008 Bottle sampled at the brewery. Cloudy golden pour with a thick, rocky white head. Superb aroma of yeast and fresh fruity hops. Superb flavor of fruity american hops with spices and yeast, it’s very dry and sharp. The body is medium with a creamy texture and moderate carbonation. The previous Extra was good, but this restyled version is simply amazing.

MiP (13598) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - MAR 18, 2008
Bottle at ZBF08. Weak hop aroma. Cloudy orange colour. Small white head. Good bready aroma. Flavour is nicely hoppy with a little sweet breadiness. Good creamy mouthfeel and flavour.

Skinnyviking (7062) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 9, 2008
Bottle. Very low and quickly disappearing off-white head. Hazy dense orange body. Lovely and fruity fresh peach apple aroma. Flavor heavily carbonated and alcohol dominated peach oranges. Long aftertaste.

yespr (31220) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 8, 2008
From bottle at Alvinne. Pours hazy yellow to orange with a dense white head. Light caramel malt, solid spiced aroma. Flavour starts spiced. Shows a mild caramel base. And regains a solid spiced flavour towards the finish. Goes into a light fruity banana lingering finish and a mild spiced note.

harrisoni (13733) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2008 On tap at ZBF 08. Blond, very hoppy beer. It’s pretty good, drinkable, along the lines of XX Bitter. Belgian yeasty hoppy golden ale. Above average. 3.5/5 Re-rate at Twickenham Brewery tasting 08. Very pleasant hoppy, creamy beer that is very very drinkable.

CapedBrewsader (265) - Brasschaat, BELGIUM - MAR 5, 2008
ZBF 2008: Hazy dark yellow with a slight tint of red. A decent sized creamy off-white head sits nicely on top. The sweet aroma of a banana with hops sprinkled on top. Yeast, candied orange rinds, lemon zest and a hint of basil. Taste seemed just a bit harsh. Mix of grassy hop flavor with a bitter/herbal yeast, both fighting to become "King Bitter." The yeast character also seems to make the beer a bit thick.

diabel (1607) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - MAR 5, 2008
ZBF 2008, SInt Niklaas, Belgium
Muddy, blond body. Off-white creamy to rocky head. Aroma of hops and orange. Heavily bitter, citric flavour. Quite 1 dimensional and not extremely well balanced, but not bad.
