fiulijn (14978) - 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 it’s 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.

bhensonb (11234) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 13, 2013
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours orange gold with a foamy/creamy off-white head. Aroma has NW hop and a hint of sweatsox. This is a very nice aroma. Med body or better. The best thing - there’s a lot of earth/sweatsox at the start. Then it gets fruity and bitter. With some NW hop. This is amazing stuff. My tongue is feeling barnyard while there’s fresh fruit still. Frickin brilliant ale. If I had the skill, it’s the beer I’d make. Now I just had a mint choc stout, but that was good, so I don’t think this is a relief rate. The aroma and flavor are to die for. Individual parts of the numbers don’t qualify for high, but the overall does. It’s greater than the sum of its rating parts. :)

Like an American strong, hoppy aroma and hoppy finish. Lighter coloured body. Very pleasant drinkability.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - FEB 21, 2013
Bottle:   Towards the end of the bottle we get a very dark straw color, dirty, thick and hazy, moderate to large frothy off-white head, fairly nice lacing.   Soft sweet floral and ctirusy hop aroma.   Subtle spices.   Smells quite vibrant, and inviting.   A bit more muted on the tongue, dank, basement, musty.   Smells like a fresh Blonde Ale, tastes like an aged Blonde Ale.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes with a bit more spices than it started with, clean, musty, with some citrus peel and soft floral notes.   Better than I expected, and not really mealy at all.   Enjoyable!
