Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2008
750ml bottle dated 2007. Poured slightly cloudy gold in color with a MASSIVE foamy white head that left very nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is very floral, fruity, with a little lemongrass. Taste is spicy, floral, with a little banana with a nice hop finish. Thanks to Dickinsonbeer for sharing this one.

Poured a hazy golden color with a large, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, orange peel, pine, a bit of toasted dough, citrus fruits, light ginger, and other seemingly Belgian spices. Taste of pine, orange peel, citrus fruits, simcoe, white pepper, a bit of grass, and a bitter, finish with some alcohol in there as well. Thanks Paul!

Thanks to Glouglouburp for hooking me up. Pours a nice bright hazy gold/straw yellow with a massive sticky white head similar to houblon. Aroma is spicy phenolics and borders being awesome, and slightly offensive- mixes quite well with the massive ammounts of american and european hops which mask some of the yeasty phenolics. Doughy rich malty flavor - tons of pils malts, light nuttiness, and great hop character, fruity, citrus, tons of earth and herbal hops, light grapefruit, and perfect balance in the mouthfeel. One of the very few beers in this new "style" that actually turned out great. Houblon, and Xtra Gold batch 2 are the only beers that can compare to this.

Thanks to dickinsonbeer for sharing this one. Pours a hazy golden with a large foamy white head that left all kinds of sticky lacing...pour this one carefully. Aroma of sweet orange, pepper, lots of spicy notes, bready, floral, light ginger...really nice hoppy meets belgian ale aroma. Flavor was bready, a bunch of mixed spices, pepper, Belgian yeast esters, hop flavor, floral and citrus, the Saaz seems to be coming through more in the flavor. Well done.

Courtesy beerlando. This one poured a golden orange color with a thick white head that has good retention. The head leaves swirly lacing behind as it recedes. The aroma shows sweet citrus fruits, earthy tones, pepper and spices, and candy sugar. The aroma is nice with a lot going on. The flavor follows suit with a lot going on including banana, clove, spices, sweet malts, and grassy hops. Alot of interesting flavors in this one. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with good carbonation that finishes with a sweet bitter finish. This was an interesting, enjoyable beer and glad I got to try it.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 7, 2008
Pours a lightly hazy, glowing orange-amber color. A thick blanket of a foamy, off-white head coats the surface, showing excellent retention. Swaths of sticky lacing coat the glass well. Complex as can be, the nose is quite impressive. I picked up everything from grassy, spicy, peppery hops to banana esters to bready yeast, and seemingly all things in between. Flavors were equally perplexing, with a sweet, fairly neutral, bready malt backdrop allowing the delicate spicing and hopping to shine. Banana, clove, hoppy grass, and white pepper are all distinct. The mouthfeel displays a medium-full, finely carbonated body that sports a touch of lactic creaminess. Finishes very spicy and somewhat dry. A really enjoyable brew, for sure.

cmillward (497) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 7, 2008
Bottle @ ORL throwdown, courtesy of Beerlando. Golden body with a huge fluffy head. Smelled of bananas, cloves, floral hops, doughy sweetness, spicy yeast; like a hopped up tripel. Bready sweet flavors, bananas, spicy yeasts. Hops which made such a nice appearance in the aroma come around at the finish to add some bitterness. Fluffy and light in the mouth, totally hid the ABV.

hopscotch (9487) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 3, 2008
Bottle... Slap My Ass and Call Me Solanís Mom O-Town Throwdown, Part Sept... Murky, pear-colored ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The aroma is full of phenols and esters. Notes of clove, red apple and pear lead the way with undercurrents of cinnamon and bubble gum following... at a distance. Medium to full-bodied with delicate carbonation. Spicy and sweet with moderate, back-of-the-tongue bitterness. Lengthy, bitter finish. Thanks to Beerlando for his generosity!
