ladnewton (1418) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2010
Draught at "A La Morte Subite", Brussels on 16th January 2010. Gold with yellow-white foam head. Hoppy with a few savoury notes including touches of fennel, corriander and just a hint of allspice. Superb zingy mouthfeel and a very dry finish of grassy herby hop. Excellent.

Hawksfan17 (890) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2010
Hazy gold in color. Sour, fruit, possibly cherry aroma. Similar taste, very hard to place. I really noticed the carbonation while drinking this for some reason.

llcooldave (1082) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - MAY 21, 2010
Very toasted bread aroma, almost like a toasted cereal. Cloudy honey color. Floral hops flavor with a sweet wheat aftertaste like Wheat Thins mixed in.Overall this is a very complex a good brew.

mansquito (3399) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAY 21, 2010
Rabbit Club, Manhattan, swing-top ($9): Pours a nice white head that lasts for quite some time over a hazy peach body. Aroma thick with fruity notes and hops. Taste is a little sweet, but with a dry sort of finish. Definite hop presence, which is stronger than in most Belgian beers. A good few notes of grapes and champagne. Light-bodied and really refreshing and smooth. Leaves a slightly bitter aftertaste.

piscator34 (1968) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 19, 2010
Bottled sample. Pale gold with strong carbonation. Aromas are of grassy hops, spicy honey, and a bit of damp earth. Grassiness continues to be the major player in the flavor department, along with secondary notes of clover, earth, clean pilsner malt, and a bit of yeast. Light bodied and moderately bitter. Quite refreshing for an 8.5% beer.

Eructoblaster (3024) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 17, 2010
Bottle - 330ml. Hazy golden body with a huge white foamy head. Good, fresh hoppy aroma with malty and herbal hints. Its sharp hoppy taste hides the alcohol pretty well and ends with a decent bitter/herbal finish. Enjoyable.

AmEricanbrew (5847) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - MAY 13, 2010
Glowing golden color with rocky white head. Peppercorn, candi sugar spicy sweet aromas. Earthy sweet melon fruit flavors with rice pudding, candi sugar, pale malts. good.

maeib (8726) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2010
Bottled. A slightly hazy golden beer with a nice white head and hops. There are hops and biscuity malts in the aroma with spices and yeast. The taste is odd with meat and vegetables. Seems heavily hopped but the yeast and the strange dinner tastes don’t work. Not a pleasure.

nuplastikk (4399) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 4, 2010
330ml bottle. Hazy, creamy tan yellow-tan color, big foamy head. Sweet Belgian yeast, candi sugar, bubblegum aroma, not unlike a Tripel or strong Golden Ale. There is some mild bitterness, but this is hardly a Belgian IPA. Either way, the extra hops help to balance out the whole thing, creating a rather likable, complex beer. Some toasty malt shows itself as the beer breathes and mellows. A great beer.
