3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
26th February 2010
Very hazy amber beer. Massive foamy white head. Very lager like on the nose. Slightly dry palate. Strong malts, very tripel like. Distinct and rich honey. Followed by some floral sweetness and then a little bitterness in the dry soft finish. Different! Perhaps a little too sweet and dry.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, tasting with Wim and Yves. Hazy darker blond coloured with some floating yeast particals. Some very light carbonation and a short white head. Sweet full yeasty and slightly alcoholic bitter hinted aroma. Full sprankling palate. Finish is bitter hoppy, with some light alcoholic yeasty touches. Not bad.

This was a draft pour at The Local Beer Bar in Eureka, CA, showing once again how draft beers can shine compared to battled beers. This one tasted so fresh and clean. It came in the glass as hazy amber color with a good sized attractive white head. that left good lacing when swirled in the glass. The nose is caramel malts and belgian yeast a light hint of funk. Medium in body and exceptionally smooth in mouthfeel. The flavor i complex enough with some stone fruit and some hop bitterness. There all sorts of subtle flavors there and all are enjoyable. The finish is the always interesting mix of hop bitterness on malt sweetness. This was a a really good beer and I have to really thank The Local Beer Bar for bringing this one to Eureka.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Sergio's. Not sure how old. This beer was a damn volcano. I kept it at 50 and let it sit out but it erupted. Crazy fluffy white head. Belgium yeast over any hop aroma. Bitter and belgium. For high IBUs it's masked by alcohol and yeast. Skip it.

Attention en ouvrant cette bière, elle petille beaucoup, faut verser rapidement dans le verre.De couleur brun orangée avec une mousse persistante. Le gout est assez épice avec une amertume prononcée qui reste dans la bouche. Ce que je prèfère dans cette bière est son odeur, je dirai ca sent un peu le pourri, j’adore. En somme c’est une très bonne bière pour ceux qui aiment l’amértume et les gouts forts.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pizzeria Paradiso, Alexandria 12oz draught ($10): Pours an amber colour with a small head. Aroma is of Belgian yeast, an ample amount of hops, and a surprising amount of malt. Taste is on the sweet side. Also, there is a surprising amount of hops for a Belgian IPA, especially because those hops are more bitter than one would expect. Belgian aspects certainly shine through. Malt heavy for a BIPA. Not one of the best.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours the color of apple juice with thin head and big bubbles. Aroma is wheat, bubblegum, banana. Taste is apple, pear, banana, bubblegum, spicy yeast. Body is medium with barely any carbonation. Overall, this was not really hoppy or as carbonated as it needed to be. meh.

Draft at Belgian Cafe with Pat. Pours a slight blonde color with some haze and a little head. Nose has a little spiciness to it. Flavor is chewy and dry, but in a combination that isn’t too flattering.
