ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - OCT 21, 2009
Pours a murky yellow color with a thin white head. Aroma is a really nice balance of grassy hops, a bit of citrus, and some good Belgian yeast character. had no idea this was only a 4.5%. I could drink a lot of this one. Tasty.

hotstuff (4531) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 18, 2009
Bottle. Medium sized fizzy white head that mostly diminished, sparse amount of lacing, and slightly hazy with a pale yellow body. The aroma was musty, lightly hoppy, fruity, spicy, and some barnyard notes. Ditto for the flavor along with some bitterness. Mildly tingly mouthfeel and light-medium bodied. I did not care for the flavor of this beer as the flavors just did not come together for me. Something seemed to be amiss.

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 10, 2009
Pale yellow with a nice white fluffy head. Hoppy Belgian scent. Aggressive peppery hop flavour. Strong character for 4.5%!! Fuc# the lawnmower I could drink this all day and forget the chores.

imdownthepub (11965) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2009
Bottle conditioned, 330 ml at La Porteuse d’Eau, Brussels. Clouded gold with white head. Initially I found this to be slightly stewed, boiled in flavour, but fortunately a sharp hoppy lemony character showed its head and a much fresher type of beer came through. High carbonation but not the normal cardboard notes. The lasting effect is of a hoppy dry beer which was a good start to the day.

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2011 Gusher. Completely unclear translucent peach color, thick frothy white head. Spicy hoppy aroma. Quite the tasty son of a bitch. These hoppy Belgian pale ales are really wonderful (not to mention underrepresented). Added body from the yeast, but the lively carbonation keeps it from feeling too heavy. This falls in the tasty everyday drinker category. Too bad it’s so hard to find. Clean, simple, but very effectively hopped. American brewers should try to emulate this one rather than Duvel.

Ughsmash (7429) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 21, 2009
11.2 oz bottle. Poured hazy medium golden with a tall, sticky, well-retained cap of white head.. fine lacing.. quite a bit of sediment in there. The aroma picked up fresh sourdough bread and toasted pale malts topped by huge hoppage (floral and orange zest with a touch of white pepper) and fresh yeast.. engaging. The flavor was just as good.. pale malt, bitcuits, and a hint of honey at the core, again with lots of orange and floral bitterness around.. spicy and zesty on the memorable finish. Light-ish bodied and very well carbonated on the palate.. great yeast and use of hops.. I could drink a whole lot of this.

jfb (4860) - Freising, GERMANY - SEP 11, 2009
(draught, at the Poatersgat, Bruges) pours a hazy golden colour with a frothy white head, great lacing. aroma of sweaty, musty malts, with lots of citrus notes and wheat. flavour initially has the same barnyardy malt qualities, followed by a wave of citrus and herbal overtones. light body with medium carbonation and a bitter finish.
