UPDATED: JUL 21, 2008 On tap at ZBF 08. Blond, very hoppy beer. Itís 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.

A Mes rate: Bottle at the Tom’s awesome Twickenham Brewery tasting.
Cloudy yellow gold with a huge, foamy off white head. Very floral and grassy with some expected tropical fruit from the Amarillo. Tarty, bitter and very drinkable. Lovely fruity notes and an excellent bitter finish that has considerable length. Very good stuff.

jcp23 (53) - Duluth, Georgia, USA - AUG 11, 2008
Bottle into tulip. Understated yeasty, malty, mildly citric aromas. Bright, cloudy, light golden orange colour with moderate white head. Spotty lacing. Sediment swirling in the glass gently and rapidly fades into the body. Lip smackingly citrus hoppiness with notes of lemon and orange. Resinous oiliness holds together the hop complexities. Extremely drinkable with an easy, mild, very approachable mouthfeel. Delicately dry, bitter finish. Feels like drinking a fortifying fruit beverage that is healthful and rejuvenating. Like sunshine in a glass. Uniquely yummy - very nice!

Bottle from Wine & Cheese Place in (near) St. Louis, MO. What a gusher. Took two glasses to absorb it. Pours hazy light amber with a truly humongous light bubbly off-white head. Aromas include a lot of yeast, some citrus, and a little malt. Darníd if it donít seem a bit soapy. So what aroma soap, not sure. Medium body with rather smooth carbonation. Flavor is really spicy hop over malt. Rather peppery. Something like grapefruit rind. Slight burn down the gullet. This one is just so out of control. A bit of barnyard seems to be present. An exciting adventure from start to finish. Almost genteel after it settles down for awhile. Good ale. Really.

pompelmoes (89) - BELGIUM - NOV 11, 2009
Slight hazy golden blond beer with great looking white head on top. Aroma is dry-malty with a green touch of hops and a slight citrussy bite to it. a light to medium golden-blond beer with a nice refreshing character and taste. Aftertaste is slight grassy but this beer is a good example of thirst-killing tasteful blond beer.

Travlr (13413) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 20, 2010
Bottle of Extra Restyled Again at pre-ZBF 2010. Golden color, white head, large lacing. Aroma of pepper and hops. Very full body, bitter taste throughout. Nice.

Herbal and floral nose with light honey and a touch of lemon grass. Moderately bitter taste, lightly sweet, with floral hops, some cotton candy and honey. Medium body with soft carbonation.

JorisPPattyn (8032) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 1, 2008
Good, persistent yellowish, fine head; over hazy orange beer, with an olive shine. Mustard seed, greenery, fresh malt, some hops. Extremely good forward C-hoppy taste, backed with just the right amount of cakey malts. Very dry finish, if some fusels. Medium bodied, slick, near chewy. AH! This is one Alvinneís best tries. Probably the most straightforward Belgian IPA.

DSG (6337) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 1, 2008
(2/28/08) Bottle sample at PreZBF@Alvinne in Heule. Hazy orange with a big off-white head. Aroma of spices, citrus hops and a bit of yeast. A bitter flavor with lots of hops, fruits and some spices in the finish. Medium-bodied.
