Glad I picked it up to add the empty bottle to my collection. It’s worth having but not necessarily repeat purchases

superspak (2556) - Michigan, USA - MAR 18, 2012
22 ounce bottle into tulip, bottled 5/7/2010. Pours hazy golden straw color with a small 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Some nice spotty lacing on the glass, witha fair amount of carbonation streaming up. Aromas of big lemon, biscuit, apricot, apple, pear, grape, coriander, grass, floral, grain, light yeast spices, and a bit of alcohol. Some pretty nice and balanced aromas. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, grape, biscuit, pepper, grass, honey, grain, and yeast spices. Lingering notes of lemon, pear, biscuit, honey, and yeast spices on the finish for a bit. Flavors are more on the sweet side than the spicy side; but is not cloying at all. Medium carbonation and body; with a creamy and slightly slick mouthfeel. Very smooth to drink, but is good for sipping on. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming after the finish. Overall this is a very nice and enjoyable Belgian pale. Nice flavor balance and complexity.

Aroma is yeast and fruit. The flavor is similar to the aroma with a decent hop punch. Not a flavor blast like the best Belgian Ales but it was very easy to drink, almost too much.

FURLYSURIOUS (263) - Orono, Minnesota, USA - FEB 24, 2012
Pours a pale gold with a finger or two of paper white curdled head and slow, consistent beading. Nose brings sweet bread, clove, mild citrus and some floral bits. The taste is quite similar plus a slight tart bitterness that carries the citrus. Finishes pretty dry, but refreshing. Overall, a fine beer that I’m gonna miss.

From notes. First reviewed 4/29/2010. Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a tulip. Bottled 1/29/10. A fluffy white head forms with the pour, fading gradually to a spotty film, but leaving some soft lace stick down the glass. The beer itself is moderately hazy, with a golden hay color. Pear, white grape skin, and pale malt are the first to hit the nose. Slight spiciness, with an alcohol pop. The last thing I notice is a little spice and mustiness. The flavor starts our crisp and strong with a sweet pale malt bringing pear and white grape flavors to mind. Belgian spices and yeast come through, bringing clove and coriander flavor as well. The finish is still sweet. Eventually the sweetness becomes slightly cloying. Above average carbonation, which gives it a nice crispness in a medium body. Dry but sweet. I like the moderately complex flavors that go into Demolition, but the sweetness of this detracts from my desire to really get into it.

backdaft (215) - Menasha Red Light District, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 17, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2012 Bomber. Pour is hazy golden with a medium white head. Aroma is fruity Belgian yeast. Flavor is yeasty with hints of spice and some hops. Nice and clean version of a (US) Belgian golden ale

ClubGonzo (3993) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 5, 2012
Hazy light orange body, small white foamy head. Nose is yeast, salty asparagus, sweet herbal licorice and hints of hay. Strange, but somehow it all works and this is quite delightful. Taste is citrusy orange tones, light candy sugars and herbs. Hints of spices and pale malts. Carbonation is fresh, which gives a decent mouthfeel, without going too far. Original, fresh and dangerously drinkable - I’d have this in any sunny summer spot, any day! A really cool take on the Belgian light strong ales (Duvel tradition).

Bottle at Monks Café Porterhouse in Stockholm. It poured a hazy golden liquid with a fruity and yeasty taste. Nice belgo style beer.
