33 cl Belgian bottle, $2.50 @ Binny’s Bolingbrook. A little cap of foam pops up after the cap comes off. Poured straight down, I have a lot of foam, while a pale ale forms below with many chunks of chaff, yeast sediment, whatever. Smell does want to be a pale ale: I gets the sweet malts, but not much in hops. I will say, though, I like the taste. It has some strong malt, maybe a touch too sweet. Those strong American hops they’re claiming are just not there. Maybe this is an older bottle, and what do I expect for shopping off the closeout rack? Slight sour finish, but it does end up as a decent Belgian ale, with bitter hop notes finally checking in.

Nice beer with old hoppy aroma present but at taste is very nice with malty and floral hoppy flavour.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - FEB 6, 2014
Rated on 3-14-2010 (Bottle) This beer pours a large smooth white head with a short retention, cloudy straw body, fizzy carbonation, one ring of lacing, and floaties. The aroma is caramel malt, yeast, citrus, pine hops, and a hint of spice. The taste is light spice, caramel malt and citrus hops The palate is fairly smooth and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer is not overly hoppy tasting and worth trying.

This is better described as a Belgian IPA. It’s very hoppy and fruity, mostly grapefruit thanks to the delicious Amarillo hops. Good beer.

Big white head. Aroma has floral hoppy notes but very powerful. Nice carbonation. Not an IPA but a belgian style...hopped beer.

LinusStick (2823) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 6, 2012
A delicious Belgian beer. Aroma was great. Strong Belgian yeast, bubble gum, and sweet malt. Lovely. Pour was a beautiful medium gold with lots of sediment floating around and a one finger off white head. Taste was classic Belgian. Strong candi sugar, Belgian yeast and brown sugar. Delicious beer. Sweet, but not cloying. Nice carbonation. Best Belgian beer I’ve had in a while.

oldrtybastrd (3223) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 27, 2011
Pours a hazy golden yellow color. Aromas of grainy malts, yeast, and a touch of hops. Flavor was kind of lemony and herbal with some sweetness.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4843) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 13, 2011
Sampled from an 11.2 oz brown bottle this beer poured a heavily overcarbonated murky yellow-gold color with an enormous foamy orange-white head that lingered forever and left good lacing. The aroma was tangy with faint fruity hops, pepper, must, peach and dust. The flavor was dry, bitter and lightly perfumey with undertones of cracker, peach, pear and bread. The finish was short fruit and bread. Fairly full bodied despite the overcarbonation. Decent.

Prokroustis (683) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - AUG 10, 2011
Amber cloudy body with particles and a white head. Floral hoppy aroma with yeast and lemon. Harsh palate, bittersweet flavour with a spicy and dry finish.
