Spacewalker American Belgo is named for the surprising number of astronauts who have called Ohio home. Brewed with Belgian yeast and American hops, including the experimental ADHA 881 hop, Spacewalker is bold yet balanced with spicy, fruity flavors.

Une robe dorée et sa mousse qui génère une dentelle assez belle. Au nez, épices et houblons fruités, banane et gomme à bulles. Au goût, résine, oranges et autres fruits, côté épicé affirmé, malts au miel. En bouche, un liquide de moyenne densité avec une texture huileuse et un pétillement normal. En finale, une amertume un peu verte et poivrée. Merci à Andrew pour la bouteille.

Light amber with a thin head. The aroma has a lot of Belgian style spice and some hops come through. The flavor has the spice and a bit of pepper. Dry finish.

Silphium (3190) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 10, 2015
Bottle. Medium bright, cloudy orange-brown body, thick puffy, clumpy off-white head. Nose of tropical fruit, primarily banana with earthy esters and clove. Bitter, estery body with hops in the forefront; tropical fruit juice, peach, clove, pepper and herbal hops. Quite good.

fidelis83 (2224) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - JAN 14, 2015
Cloudy gold pour with an amber center and a tall, chunky off white head that has too good retention, meaning you really can’t access the beer under it for a few minutes, true to many of the better examples of the style. Aroma is cereal, dusty wheat, sharp stone fruit, sweet and tart citrus, sweet raspberry, a hint of banana, wet limestone and a hint of toffee. Flavor is dull cereal and caramel right away, some floral, huge grassy and floral hops, sweet and tart under ripe berries, doughy raw yeast, light medicinal bitterness, a little pepper, dried tart apricot heavy stone fruit and a hint of green apple skin. Medium body, creamy to neutral entry, light to medium, slightly sharp carbonation, dry, somewhat chalky and acidic finish. Really good stuff overall, it doesn’t nearly hit the obvious intended target (Orval, or perhaps one of the American knockoffs), but it’s still damn nice.

12oz bottle. Poured a golden color with an averaged sized head. Yeast, spicy, and some fruitiness.

bottle @ Vino Bellissimo / Lima OH --- Clear medium amber with a long 1" ivory head, sheets of lace. An interesting "hybrid" brew that works on some levels, not on others. Taste is caramel malt that adds overwhelming floral hops in the palate, then switches to White Ale spices in a finish in which the hops won’t let go. The two sides remain strong, but they don’t agree with each other very well.

Draft at old chicago. From notes. Loads of citrus and floral hops dominate. Slight spices in the finish.

DocLock (8798) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy orange with off-white head. Nose is yeasty, candi sugary caramel malt, hops, fruit. Tastes yeasty funky, fruity, spicy, but not melded well. Decent, not great.

northropfrye (2905) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 31, 2014
Light orange body, some lacing, but not much head retention. Kind of a wheaty with a touch of citrus aroma. Taste is semi bitter but also yeasty and sweet. This is like a subdued weizenbock with a touch of hops. Not bad.
