Bottle shared by Butters at the 18th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering. Pours a clear dark amber color with a large frothy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of toasted malts, sawdust and corn. The taste is corn, spicy hops and pale malts. Medium bodied, average carbonation.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Brewed at De Molen, pours a cloudy dark orange, montrous white tiny bubbled head, thickest lacing you can have on a beer. Aromas and taste are kinda weird, wondering how fresh it was but alot of these denmark/norway ipas never survive the trip or their hops just pale in comparison to the stoner growers on the west coast. Bitter wet hop smell, stale basement. Aftertaste is pleasent but regular taste is too bitter/spicy. Medicin filled and weird.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A hazy shade of amber. Huge frothy off-white head - about three fingers. And I have big hands. Little bit of lacing left behind, at least when the head finally dies down. A bit of an off-aroma reminiscent of a poorly made homebrew. An earthy, yeasty aroma. Slight bit of citrus underneath it all. Not much of a taste. Kind of hoppy, kind of malty. But the huge amount of carbonation is making all that so muted that it might as well have left out all the ingredients and just bottled carbonated water. There is a bitterness in the backend, with a hint of malt. At least that reminds you that it is beer. Not very good. I like their dookie better.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle bought at Hopduvel in Gent. It almost exploded out of the bottle so I had to be quick to pour it. The result was a huge pale yellow head standing on hazy orange-golden ground. Nutty smell, some malts, a bit weird actually, it smells like peanuts. The peanut smell is in the taste as well. I’m not sure if this is an off flavour but it didn’t work for me.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle @ 18th RG. Nice gold with pretty white head. Angels like corn on the cob. Tastes grainy and watery. Not what I’d hoped.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle@Home. Citrus, grass and cardboard aroma. Copper colour, huge beige head, good lace. Sweet, very bitter, onion, garlic, grass. Medium body but sparkling mouth feel. Not my cup of tea.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
A: The beer pours a hazy golden orange color with a finger of white head.
S: Smells like urine and bleach. There’s a lot of straw and grass with a bit of funk, feet, and mushrooms. A very light citrus note along with a touch of bread and sweetness.
T: Woah, this is jut not good. Lots of earthy mushrooms, not really what I was looking for. It’s...catty and wild, sort of like a new world Sauvignon Blanc. There’s a bit of wood, straw, and grass too.
M: The body is medium with a medium carbonation.
O: This was just bad. Wouldn’t care to have this again.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2011 X Large white head, rocky and lasting. Hazy, copper hued brew. Nose is funked. Mild citrus and plenty of bandaid and CO2. Medium body, seriously over carbonated, spritsola. Faint citrusy hop flavors buried under a really skunked beer. Phenolic, bandaids, medicinal, etc. Drain pour! Bottle from statelineliquors.

Pours a poop brown. Waaaay over carbonated. Taste actually probably like cat piss mixed with robatussin. Failure.
