UPDATED: MAY 16, 2013 On tap at the Alehouse Project. Interesting and complex, with balance. Aromas of caramel, dough, and peach. Taste is sweet, sour, and long lasting. Creamy, with a full body. Amber, with a frothy head.

Belgian Strong Ale when it says IPA on the label?? OK 330 ML bottle Hazy orange amber color. Half finger of white head the fals to a collar. Spotty lacing. Nose is a tropical fruit bowl with touches of bubblegum. Would thing more dry hopping with the aroma. Mango most prominent in the nose. >not bitter at all and that is OK. Candied pine, candied grapefruit, and candied mango and bubblegum. Not bitter but flavorful. What bitterness is there smooths out the sweetness from the yeast. Dominant mango finish. Slick, oily and a bit too sweet. Medium bodied and light carbonation. Just needs a bit more bitterness to cut through the sweetness but a solid beer that is well crafted.

Maris (989) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - APR 11, 2013
From a 330ml bottle on 11/4/2013 (ABV listed as 7.6%, not 7.2%). Pours a cloudy dark golden with a small head. Has a lovely aroma with is fruity, floral and a little hoppy, with a touch of Belgian yeast and honey. In the mouth, it begins sweet, with loads of tropical and stone fruit (I get a lot of pineapple, apricot and mango), and more honey. This is balanced by a firm, satisfying bitterness with some grapefruit notes. This is all set against an ever so subtle spicy/peppery background. The body is quite full and the carbonation relatively lively. This is a terrific, complex and unusual brew which comes together beautifully. Great work by Feral.

Brenhophead (558) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 8, 2013
330mL bottle (feral’s first single batch). Pours slightly cloudy golden with a very small white head and a sweet doughy citrus aroma. Piney notes in the flavour with a big sweet hit that balances the bitterness nicely followed by the unique belgian yeast esters. Nice beer but not my style.

grainmerchant (11) - AUSTRALIA - APR 4, 2013
Aroma - Out of a XL5 tasting glass - Nice american hop aroma with a big bubblegum eastery yeasty explosion Appearance - Slightly yeasty and a bright golden hue Taste - Nicely balanced between high alc, belgian yeast esters and american hops and sweet candy sugar. Palate - Great body and nicely balnced Overall - A cracking belgian IPA that lives up to what it says it is.

stoutnick (530) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 2, 2013
UPDATED: APR 28, 2013 Peachy with a faint pinkish hue. Aroma is fruit and big belgian yeast. Taste is very bold - oily with a mild bitterness. Overall, very tasty. Feels more like a tripel or a belgian ale than an ipa, but this makes it all the more interesting. Couldn’t drink a lot of this one. Update: Had on tap, and preferred it way more. The hoppy character comes through louder than the belgian abbey yeast, which makes for a better balanced, more enjoyable brew in my opinion.

lliams (196) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 1, 2013
Striking appearence- bright gold with great foam; perfect carbonation. the aromas are bready and piney at the same time. I get a hint of smoke in the flavours. A lot of complexity here. All together delicious. Very hoppy

HopRedHead (354) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 28, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Don't normally do Belgians, but wow! Super fruity/peachy nose with heavy bubblegum aroma. Delicious combination of funky Belgian flavours delivered through an IPA, hops driving flavours and bitterness. Really clever beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hawthorne00 (2431) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 28, 2013
Bottle, 7.6%.ABV Just hazy amber with an inch of off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit, peach, dough and yep bubblegum. Creamy mouthfeel, moderate carbonation. Sweet with loads of fruit and some dough. Citrus cuts through and the finish is bitter and resiny with a little pepper and vanilla. Tasty, well balanced, very dangerously drinkable. Delivers.

ALLOVATE (2407) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 20, 2013
Draught @ Feral Brewing Company, Baskerville.
First beer of the day and easily the highlight. Produced up a sunny orange copper. Radiant, with a tight bead and sticky, dense white pad atop. Whole hop nose is piney, camphorous and citric with a bitter orange and grapefruit edge and sweet inklings of Hubba Bubba™ bubblegum and Starburst™ fruit chews. Belgian yeast and notes of rock candi come through up front giving it a supple sweetness before all hops carry it into the swallow. Really holds up well as it warms, fresh, tangy and oozing with tropical fruit esters. Moderate bitterness on the peak sees floral, zingy, rose petal musk and pinewood come through before a fruity, Belgian yeast blend in the swallow. Holds the alcohol scarily at bay; creeps up with its paws out. Malt backbone not to be forgotten as its firm and well rounded in mouthfeel. Deadly sessionable stuff that even had my partner hooked. Another bloody good ale from Feral!
