Martinus (4317) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - APR 7, 2011
Pale golden colour, slight haze, big creamy white head. Good lacing. Aroma of floral hops, coriander seeds and lime with sweet malt and yeast tones. Taste of malts, bit sweet and bitter hops. Spicy notes, some yeast, again coriander and citrus fruits. Dry hoppy finish. Elegant and charming beer. (from tap)

maneliquor (3480) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 7, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2011 Bottle from Mane Liquor - Great golden colour with a little bit of haze but fantastic head retention. Attributes to a great mouth feel, clean with a smooth cream finish. Slight fruit and floral tones on the nose, then exculated during tasting. Great flavour across the palate of fruit, honey, gentle hoppy taste with not much bitterness. Overall a good beer that is well balanced

tderoeck (7217) - Gent, BELGIUM - APR 1, 2011
24/03/2011 - 33cl bottle @ home - BB: 15/02/13 (2011-119) Thanks to Bouvier for the bottle!

Clear pale yellow beer, big white aery head, big bubbles. Pretty stable and adhesive. Lots of small bubbles pearling in the glass. Aroma: bitter hops, malts, some faint yeast note and citrus fruits. MF: lots of carbon, foamy explosion in the mouth, medium body. Texture a bit like milk foam, no doubt due to the high amount of carbon present in the beer. Taste: mainly citrus fruits, lemon, lime but also grapefruits, then some maltiness and alcohol coming through. Aftertaste: lots of citrus fruits and a pleasing hop bitter are taking turns, but in the end the citrus fruits are winning, leaving you with a wrinkled mouth, craving for another sip. Gooood finish!

Beautiful foam head, like whipped cream. Slight aroma. The different hops are well balanced with a slightly bitter aftertaste. On tap at de beiaard

77ships (6479) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 15, 2011
UPDATED: APR 2, 2011 draft@ZBF 2011: light bitter hops, floral, herbs, more syrup & herbs than hops, slightly sweet yeast, some minor malt, enjoy, not hoppy enough to really justify the name but it has more than the average amount of hops for a Belgian beer //// bottle@bar: much better in bottle than on draft, more balanced, stronger fuller taste, hops, yeast, some citrus & minor herbs (rating for bottle)

BelvidereIPA (140) - Belvidere, Illinois, USA - MAR 12, 2011
A whole lot of head. The head appears heavily carbonated. Good aroma, but a little fruitier than I typically prefer. Despite the "bubbly" look of the head, it is thick and does not quickly dissipate. Has the citrus taste you expect from a Belgian. Has an airy feel to it while drinking. Overall, I am more of an IPA drinker. This is one of the first Belgian Strongs Ive tied so its hard to gauge. Enjoyed the beer..but probably will not be purchasing again.

DSG (9561) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 12, 2011
[3/6/11] Draught at ZBF 2011. Hazy yellow-ish pale golden with a pretty, white head. Aroma of floral hops, yeast, fruit esters and light spiciness. Spicy flavor with yeast, fruits, alcohol and bitter spicy hoppiness thats getting stronger in the finish. Medium-bodied.
