probstblueribbon (2892) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 8, 2008
300 ml bottle from Bieropholie, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Slightly hazy deep golden with a decent off-white head. Aroma: Peppery/pine hops, some lighter citrus, good bread crust and biscuit, lightly fruity and yeasty, slightly dirty and earthy(?). Palate: Medium body with moderate effervescence. Flav.: Peppery and spicy, some pine and herbaceous hops, light fruit, lemon and pale malts; off-dry with surprising hop bitterness for a Belgian, actually decent bitterness regardless of origin.

I like it due to the bitterness.

rederic (2911) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 2, 2008
Hazy gold blonde hue, with a thick white head, leaving laces, yeasty, fruity, nice floral herbal hop nose, with a faint citrusy accent of lemon , and a hint of honeyed pale malt in the aroma follows though on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty, bready dough character, with an earthy grainy pale malt accent, with a leafy, flowery hop bitter mouthfeel, with a light fruity zest lime note, leading towards a acidic lime, juicy hop bittering finish.

Christian (11055) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 25, 2008
Cloudy yellow with a big white head. Belgian yeast aroma with pineapple, orange, clove and nutmeg. Fruity and soft flavour initially but with a great hop bite following soon after. Slightly spicy, but first of all good herbal continental hops well balanced by the fruity yeast character.

Skinnyviking (6954) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 25, 2008
Bottle. High fluffy quickly disappearing white head. Hazy milky orange body. Malty nutty peach aroma with grassy notes. Flavor quite different from the aroma though. A somewhat sharp bitterness is dominating but pepper and can also be spotted. Low carbonation and a long aftertaste. OK, but nothing special.

Boutip (4688) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 19, 2008
Bottle: Poured a golden color ale with a big foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aromas of dry hops are dominating with a bready yeast presence. Taste is also a very nice mix between some dry Noble hops with a nice Belgian malt profile and somewhat bready yeast. Full body with good carbonation and no alcohol. Very well done and easily drinkable.

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - SEP 19, 2008
33cl bottle. Hazy orangey golden, foamy white head. Very fruity, orange zest aroma, quite a lot of yeast. Similar spritzy orange zest flavor, yeast, little chalky and hoppy finish. Strongly carbonated, fizzy palate. Simple, fruity, but over yeasty belgian.

Golden of color with a nie offwhite head. An aroma with notes of spice, hay, yeast and fruits. A flavor with notes of spice, yeast, fruits and some hoppy bitterness.

tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - SEP 17, 2008

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - SEP 13, 2008
Cask, BSF at the GBBF. Hazy caramel, translucent white head. Clove, honey, light hay nose. Refreshing yeasty flavor, gentle tropical fruit, nice tannic finish. Light and drinkable but with a good flavor volume. As nice as this was, felt like a little more time for the cask to settle would have let some more refined flavors shine through.
