ricke (476) - Malme, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2010
Bottle. Cellared a bit too long. Pale orange, slightly hazy, with a medium-sized head. The aroma is a bit quirky with strangely noticeable notes of ripe apples. Notes of fresh grass, malts and floral hops as well. The flavor os medium sweet and is also coupled with notes of apples. The beer still has a fairly crisp malty backbone and decent hop aromas. Notes of yeast. The finish is quite bitter and there’s not a whole lot countering it. Ands with a faint chemical note and hints of vegetal hops. Moderate body and smooth carbonation. Not a bad beer, but those apple notes where quite strange. Probably not supposed to be cellared this long.

islay (1067) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 12, 2010
11.2 oz. bottle. Yeasty, dry aroma features bubblegum and apricot scents. Pleasant but weak smell. Pours a dirty, cloudy, milky, pale gold with a large amount of off-white, uneven head. Wisps of yeast can be seen. Dry taste features apple and a hint of peach. Alcohol noticeable but not overpowering. Nice, dry finish with a stripe of fruit sweetness. Easy to drink. Medium body. Relatively lively. Alvinne Extra Restyled is more pleasant than good (but certainly inoffensive) and more a dry golden Belgian than the IPA that is claimed on the label. Minus 1 point for overcarbonation that caused overflow. The beer is better than my score indicates, but it’s hard to determine where to give additional points.

LadySusan (720) - Ste-Therese, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 11, 2010
330ml. bottle at Brouhaha. The color is a hazy blond with a thick white head. The taste is bitter but not the usual bitter of an I.P.A.. It also has the taste of malt and spicies.The finish is bitter and sour at the same time.

Archibaldo de la Cruz (1122) - FINLAND - JAN 28, 2010
Bottle. Hazy dark golden colour with a huge white head. Fruity aroma with notes of alcohol, yeast and malt. The flavour is grapefruit, malt, some bitterness and spices with notes of alcohol. Carbonation is quite high, mouthfeel smooth.

jrallen34 (3478) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 17, 2010
I drank this from an 11oz bottle into my Rochefort chalice. This boy is a gusher. As I pop the cap and walk away, I came back its fizzing all around. It pours with lots of carbonation too. It is medium orange with an off white 3 finger head. There is lots retention and great lacing. It might be best lacing I’ve vere seen. It coats the whole glass and doesn’t go anywhere. The aroma is strong with lots of beglian hops dominating. There is also a little pine, not much sweetness, maybe some lemon. The taste is off from the aroma, I was expecting tons of hops, but they are very muted. There is a light hops taste, but mostly sour fruit. The feel is decent, nice lasting flavor. Drinkability is ok, its good, but for some reason I wouldn’t go for another. Overall, this is ok nothing special. The taste is to mild for its aroma, but a typical belgian ipa.

TaxiDriver (1472) - Stadland, GERMANY - JAN 16, 2010
Bottle. A balanced smell of sour and malty, light sweet and some bread. The head is very large, white and creamy with a long duration. The body is dark yellow. The taste is very sour, only a light taste of malt and hops. The body is creamy, medium strong and with a normal carbonation.

jfb (3682) - GERMANY - JAN 16, 2010
(bottle) a gusher indeed. pours a hazy golden-yellow colour with a tall frothy white head. aroma of herbs and tropical fruits, with very pronounced notes of citrus, some light funk and a touch of grain. flavour is again mostly citrus fruits with tangy bitter finish, seems a bit unbalanced. medium body with fizzy carbonation.

Embrouille (2819) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 13, 2010
Bottled 33cl. It pours a murky orange beer with a huge mountainous bubbly white head. Impurities floating. Yeast accented with a good hop profile. Medicinal. Peppery on the swallow. Good bitterness. Fruity. Too yeasty for me.

downender (6151) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2010
Bottle from Utobeer. Very lively pour. Dirty amber in colour, with a massive white head flecked with brown which left unpleasant, scummy lacing down the glass. Cardonation was very fizzy with bits of yeast circulating around. Aroma of citrus hops and sweet malts. Flavour had apricots, some spice and orange hops, with a dryish finish. The appearance was really off-putting.
