Rastacouere (6159) - Montreal, Quebec, - JAN 27, 2013
A gentle haze punctuate this straight golden ale which develops a towering frothy, dense white foam. Resinous and fairly green, herbal nose delves into the spicy, bready yeastiness to raise up a chivey, accentuated spicy profile. Not as fresh as I should have drank it, but I can see how the mostly faded dry-hopping must have been strongly flowery and resinous earlier on. At this mature stage (probably closing on 1-yr old), the yeast is fairly present though fortunately not stealing the show from the hops and the malt remains just gently cerealic and on the pale, bready side of the spectrum. This makes for a straightforward oiffering that does not necessarily strive for balance, but rather focuses on hops and I can see how enjoyable that must be for variety’s sake in Belgium. Fairly dry, yet convincingly warm and bold for a 6% offering, offering a relatively dense texture presumably thanks to the non-filtration and smallish, tighter than average bubbles. Hop-forward indeed despite having several months under its belt (BB Apr. 2014). Pretty good, though at this stage, it’s stronger on bitterness than aromas.

zinneke (136) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 30, 2015
A lot of hops! Very floral, piney, grassy and citrussy. Some yeast and grains. No off flavors. Taste is medium bitter with a quite dry yet sticky finish. Mouthfeel is very creamy. Very enjoyable ’belgian beer body’ spiced up with some american hops. From tap this beer is excellent

Bottle, pours hazy dark yellow with a white head. Mild citrus and orange, floral, biscuit, light spices. A rather delicate ipa.

Ik proef bitter, heel veel bitter. Vind het bier niet echt een verrijking, groot verschil met hun andere bieren. Deze koop ik niet opnieuw

MartinBeer (8) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 11, 2015 does not count
Fresh grassy aroma with some citrus and grafefruit. Nice amber hazy appearance with clear white foamy head. Fresh taste with fine hops blends. Perfect dryness, medium bitter. Full sticky body with lively carbonation but not too. Longing aftertaste. Perfect after 100 k of cycling at 30 °C!

Erzengel (5528) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUL 5, 2015
*Old rating. Best before Okt 2013. Nett frisch-hopfiges Bier. Ein leichter Hauch Zitrone, schöne intensive Hopfennote, die etwas frischer grasiger sein könnte. Rund und toll!

Mortlach (1297) - Rome, ITALY - JUN 27, 2015
330ml bottle @Luppolo Station (Rome). Pours deep golden, a bit unclear, with a giant head. Aroma is malty, caramel, citrus notes, orange zest, light floral notes and spices. Flavour is balanced, high malt profile with a decent bitter end. Medium body, medium carbonation. A bit boring...

Tognetta (340) - Campinas, BRAZIL - JUN 25, 2015
Laranja escura, espuma de fácil formação, média duração. Aroma lupulado, cítrica (menos que uma american IPA), mais doce que o esperado, sem ser negativo. Paladar de amargor muito bem balanceado, sem ser cansativo. Corpo e carbonação médios. Aftertaste prazeroso, muito boa.

From Boone (Nieuwpoort)
Très bonne IPA belge offrant un beau nez très parfumé fleuri, avec de la levure et un beau corps malté trouble assez classique: assez rond légèrement mieleux; on devine le Pilsen, accompagné d’une astringence moyenne du froment qui tapisse bien toute la bouche et soutient l’amérisation assez longue, sur des notes fleuries, légèrement résineuses et minérales, mais sans agresser le palais et accompagnées de saveurs fruitées de mandarine, de pomello voire de litchi.

Bottle from at Cotteridge Wines; clear burnished amber pour with a frothy white head, aroma has marmalade and light spice, taste has light citrus, pale malts, digestive biscuit, a hint of grapefruit, ok.
