On tap at the new Liars Club. Pours a clear light amber color with a 1" quickly dissolving head. Nice lacing. Aroma of light hops, yeasty, spicey, and light banana. Flavors of about the same. Nice easy drinking.

LilKem (1213) - Marietta, Ohio, USA - APR 5, 2008
Amazing. On tap at Newport Pizza. Had good body and decent alcohol content that wasn’t too much but was definitely present. Some bready, yeasty, apple, apricot, orange, and pice notes. Yum. Crazy good on tap.

puzzl (3251) - New York, New York, USA - APR 3, 2008
Tap at Blind Tiger. Good Belgian yeast and old American hops in the aroma. Funky, pungent hop flavors, acrid, sweaty, rather boozy. Tough to drink.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - APR 2, 2008
Draft at the Blind Tiger. Light orange pour with some white head. Aroma is citrusy, hoppy pine, and light belgian spices. Flavor is light sweet malt (like a blond belgian), citrus hops, bubblegum / banana sweet malt, earthy spices and hop bitterness in the finish. Interesting and good.

nhorween (645) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 22, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2008 Growler from Bierkraft. Golden pour with a lots of bubbles and a big white head. Good clean flavors and smooth bitter finish. Grassy and fairly light, but still plenty of flavor. Really, really easy to drink for 9%. Nicely crafted. Rerate, 22oz - pithy lemon in the flavor, mild spiciness, well balanced hop bill.

JoeMcPhee (8410) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 3, 2008
Tap at Ginger Man. Hazy golden beer, thin white head. The aroma is quite fruity and hoppy with a light grapefruit citrus, some light honey and apricot as well. A lightly spicy yeastiness that throws some clove and black pepper. It smells like an IPA/Belgian pale hybrid. Flavour is spicy and fruity with loads of sweet peach/pear fruitiness. Very spicy and estery flavour. Lean crackery belgian pale malts. While there is a fair amount of bitterness it isn’t nearly as assertive as I would have guessed from the aroma. It’s quite nice really.

WeeHeavySD (3360) - San Diego (Hillcrest), Oregon, USA - FEB 17, 2008
Tap @ O’brien’s 1/15/08. Pours orange with a bright white ring. Nose is big and fragrant with lots of citrus. Taste is really nice and awesome, some belgian notes, some hops and citrus makes for a good beer.

jcwattsrugger (11083) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JAN 16, 2008
on tap-pours an off white head and hazy gold color. Aroma is yeast, spice-clove, rock candy/caramel. Taste is yeast, spice-clove, rock candy/caramel, hops-dry/bitter. Heavy on the spicing for me.

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - NOV 16, 2007
On tap @ Hamiltons: These Belgian style IPA’s seem to be turning up all over town, and seems to have become the new thing for local brewers. Whatever, I ain’t complaining, they’re good. This one has nice golden color. Aroma is more on the Belgian style than an IPA. Flavor is a nice marriage of the two, with some good yeasty characteristics and a nice hoppy bite. Very good.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - OCT 28, 2007
GABF 2007: Poured a hazy gold color with a big Belgian yeast character. Spicey with a hint of tartness. The flavor was malty and yeasty. Spicey dry finish. Medium-full bodied.
