SaintMatty (6131) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 13, 2009
330ml Bottle - Copper/amber in colour. Malty, fruity and slightly hoppy aroma with hints of grapefruit and grain. Well balanced hoppy and fruity taste with grapefruit and hints of dried fruit and spicy malt. Fairly tasty, but not an IPA.

DonMagi (5595) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2009
Tap in the rake. Alround rating: Loads of honey fron the pale malts, peppery fruity bittering hop, still on the sweeter side and not really an IPA as i know it, but i like it.

TBone (14780) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 25, 2009
Bottled (BB 03/2010, Vasa session). Courtesy of bierkoning, ty Edo! Clear amber-golden color, small white head, some lace. Woody hops, grapefruits and oranges. Fruity (mango, peach), but dry flavor, bitterish-spicey. Not IPA-like bitterness, but more like standard Belgian blonde like. Drinkable, not yeasty, filtered.

oh6gdx (23635) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 25, 2009
Bottled. Deep golden colour, mediumsized white creamy head. Aroma is fruity hops, earth, some slight rubbery notes and mild bready notes. Flavour is flowery hops, earth and some slught alcohol. Also quite big on the yeastyness.

thewolf (11640) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 18, 2009
Bottle, bought @ Willems, Grobbendonk.
Extremely clear orange copper with a fine, creamy, white head. Nice duration and a bit of lacing. Aroma has a milky feel to it, some fruit, orange and pineapple and a light metallic edge. Medium carbonation with small bubbles, fair mouthfeel. Flavour is actually quite fine. Nice yeast balancing well with some fruity and pine hops. A bit of metal in the flavour as well, but still an okay drink.

Alphadelic (1974) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 30, 2009
Creamy and sweet aromas give way to a nice dry mouth-experience. It mellows smoothly in the finish. Very tingly. A round balanced creamy mouthful.

FatPhil (11817) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 22, 2009
330ml bottle (One Pint, Helsinki, Belgian Weeks 2009)
Deep orange, healthy head. Dusty hops, but also quite lagery, aroma. Candi-sugar and metallic taste. Very simply malty body. Hops are a bit grassy. Some plastic too. Boring and a touch of alcohol too in places. No yeast in the bottle - not a good sign - not a proper belgian ale.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 15, 2009
Draught@Kulminator, Antwerp. A big rockywhite head with long duration resting on clear, deep golden to pale amber colored body. Clean, slight nutty malt aroma, some citrus notes. Taste is fairly dry malty, with grassy/earthy bittering hops and pepper notes. Medium to light-bodied. Light watery mouthfeel. Short, empty finish.

sayravai (4700) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 14, 2009
(Bottled) Clear, deep golden with a smallish, lacy head. No yeast in the bottle. Mild, slightly grassy-hoppy aroma with hints of acidity and pale malt. Acidic-malty flavor with lemony-herby hops, metal and medium bitterness. Light to medium body with fizzy carbonation. More like a fruitier-than-average pils, than an IPA or Belgian Ale. Acidity and harshness are just not for me.

MoritzF (8926) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - MAR 8, 2009
(33cl bottle) Clear, amber colour with a thick and slightly off-white foamy head. Sweet cara-malty aroma with shy floral hoppy notes and a very subtle fruity touch. Sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied with a calm carbonation. Distinctive caramel-malty taste, slightly bready with herbal hops. Slightly sweet malty and herbal hoppy finish with a cara-malty and slightly alcoholic aftertaste. Despite the name not an overly convincing brew (08.III.09).
