DuffMan (9283) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 21, 2011
Small swing top bottle. Hazy medium golden with an incredibly lively white head that collapses into rocky flotsam. Sweet cereal aroma, peppery hops. Chewy cereal malt opens the palate, honey sweetness, apple, pineapple, and light pepper add some hop character. Smooth, slightly creamy mouthfeel. I didn’t have a clue that this weighed in at 8.3%.

Bottle. Slightly hazy yellow beer, white head. Yeasy fruity aroma with citrus and metal notes. Hoppy grassy flavor, spicy, some citrus.

Hopus was a failure. Nothing offensive by it so i still stays at about a 3 rating but there are NO hops in hopus. Belgian malt licka.

Nice hoppy choice from Lefebvre! great appearance! Aroma is hoppy ( grass, flower, citrus). Taste is bittersweet and a little bit alcoholic and spicy!

shrubber85 (10359) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 26, 2011
Swing-top bottle. Apple, stale grainy malt aroma. Cloudy amber color with moderate head. Sweet apple and stale barley malt flavor. Okay - bottle was obviously a bit past its prime though.

Nephilium (1662) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUL 18, 2011
This opens with a big boozy aroma of alcohol, which eventually settles down into an overpowering sweet aroma. It pours a clear golden color, with a big craggy white head, leaving lacing on the side as it fades away. Interesting flavor... sweet and sugary, with the alcohol hidden. Slick and light on the palate. Not a bad sipper, although with a name of Hopus, I was expecting a bigger hop blast.

ElDesmadre (3078) - Mikołów, POLAND - JUL 16, 2011
Bottle. Dark golden, head has a really high sustain. Aroma is sweetish and vinous, malty-hoppy. Thick palate, heavy body. Taste is malty and also hoppy, high on bitterness that seems to be the result of the hops mixing together with the alcohol. Very interesting.

greenclansman (904) - Nicosia, CYPRUS - JUL 12, 2011
A Belgian ale that has nothing to do with its kind. It has some similarities, but the bitterness of the hops make it even better. Thick foam that prevents you from smelling it properly. I liked it very much

Benzai (12782) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 27, 2011
Don’t really smell much hop in this one, too bad. The carbonation and body are great. Really suits the 8.5 ABV.

bottle. golden colour with large foamy head kinda hide the aroma. hops spices present in taste with bitter after taste with light alcohol tones. good lacing. gives you that warm feeling.
