3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl fresh bottle at home. BB may 1st, 2011, sampled nov 5th 2009.
cap came off almost by itself with a huge POP , my hand was forcibly moved up from the bottle by the explosion. not much beer was spilled as i poured quickly, however, with more than half the beer in a glass fluffy head still lava’s out of the neck of the bottle. I advise the use of napkins, glasses and earplugs when opening this one.
Unclear orange with lots of debris of different sizes. very fluffy almost white but offwhite head.
nice bitterhoppy aroma, not very strong, but a lot more "american" than your usual belgian beer. A little spicyness too.
flavor is floral, spicy, bitterhoppy, as well as a little pine and grapefruity from hops. ends fruity and bitterhoppy.
I would’ve rated it a bit higher if it didn’t almost explode upon opening. Also looks bad with the debris and the fluffy head.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
11.2 ounce bottle from Wine & Beer Westpark in Richmond, VA. The bottle has 2007 printed on it but also says restyled so I’m rating it here. Pours a hazy peach color with tiny floating particles. Large frothy head with good head retention and lacing. Bready, caramel aroma with strong citrus hops as well as peach and other fruity notes. Taste is bitter citrus hops, some bread. Medium bodied.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Recently brought back from State Line Liquors. Absolute bomb explosion of foam - it wasn’t moved in days. A third left in bottle of citrus IPA, and the foam not shot out. A lemonbalmy aroma with the fragrant Amarillo, a pleasing bitterness. Wish there was more. Good mouthfeel.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle. From Germany (bierkompass.de). OKT2011. Lot 412.
Rediculous amout of foam coming out of bottle all over the place before I was even trying to pour it. Not very easy to pour or drink since it’s foaming a lot. Lots of yeast sediment as well. Hazy yellow colour with incredibly oversized foamy white head. Fruity hoppy bitterness combined with Belgian yeast and some caramel sweetness in aroma. Flavour is Belgian yeast, bitter hops, sweet caramel, malt and spices. Quite strong. Alcohol warming well present. Interesting mixture of well hopped ale and Belgian Ale. Good but not exactly the cream of the crop.
