fiulijn (14549) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 13, 2013
Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
Cloudy blond color, with creamy head. The aroma is very mild, at least itís a bit spicy. Good flavor, malt, with a quite strong spicy character and delicate fruitiness; the mouthfeel is very smooth; strong bitterness too.
Quite close to a real Belgian, a bit more fruity and bitter than the average.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a foamy white head. Nose is quite Belgian with spiciness, floral hop notes. Palate is medium with a stickiness, light sting with a big finish. Flavors of spice, a fruity and spicy hop note, light peach and apricot notes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheRealMGD (551) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - JAN 3, 2013
Bomber from PD. Cloudy gold pour with a short, brief white head leaving sparse lace. Nose is spicy and very Belgian. Medium body and moderate, fine carbonation. Banana, coriander, apple, pepper, apricot, dandelion and caramel. Medium finish is fairly dry, bitter and umami. Another competent but not exceptional ale from Gigantic. Great labels, OK beer.

beersearcher (2334) - Glendale, California, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Another pretty label from Gigantic. An almost Dr. Pepper aroma followed by a Belgian yeast. A lot of spices swirling in here melding with some vanilla and alcohol notes. Getting cinnamon as well. Perfect for New Years.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - DEC 22, 2012
22oz bottle. Clearish golden amber with a thick, foamy, light beige head. Aroma of citrus, earthy/musty yeast, honey and herbal tea. Flavor of Belgian candi sugar, light hop bitterness, zesty yeast and no alcohol taste. Medium body with average carbonation. This is a really nice beer, lots going on but it comes together very well and is super drinkable.

pdx77 (1367) - Oregon, USA - DEC 18, 2012
From bottle. Full-flavored Belgian style ale with fruit, spice, and light yeast notes. Light hop presence on the finish.

cmonster (972) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 11, 2012
Bottled. Pours orange with a slight haze and a short head. Very good retention and lacing. Melon, light spice, and cereal grain. Light sweet fruit and malt flavor. Light-med body, good carbonation, sticky-prickly texture, and a dry, light bitter finish.

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 4, 2012
Easily my favourite label from them so far. Hazy as they come with a light, very hoppy lemon scent, plenty of confectioners sugar and spice. Plenty fizzy with a very slick mouthfeel. Light candy sugar and a hint of bitterness. If anything Iíd complain it was too bubbly but I have had that from some of my favourite Belgians too.

Ratman197 (9802) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - DEC 4, 2012
Bomber poured a hazy gold with a lasting white head. Aromas of straw, pear, lemon zest, grapefruit, yeast and light spice. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of straw, pear, yeast, grapefruit, lemon zest and a hint of spice with a smooth dry bitter lingering citrus finish.

mages64 (36) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 3, 2012
(tasted blind) Appearance: cloudy light orange with lots of lacing. Nose: Spice, mandarin oranges, hoppiness, and sugary sweetness Taste: Bitter with lots of orange flavor. Itís seriously a mandarin orange that finishes with slight peppercorn and bitterness. Mouthfeel: Full bodied with sharpness from the carbonation. super sticky. Overall: Iím not 100% sure but Iím getting such a mandarin orange flavor and bitter finish that Iíd like to be slightly more malt forward but thatís me being overly picky. Iím guessing this is blue dot. Solid 94 because of how awesome the hops and yeast shine through.
