Pours a just slightly cloudly, dark golden color with a modest, creamy head. Not much carbonation apparent at all. Aroma is quite pleasant. Very strong bready, yeasty smell with notes of earth and citrus. Taste is quite similar, but the citrus aspect is much more vibrant. Hints of bitter lime rise with notes of apple and wood. Texture is generously creamy with adequate carbonation to distribute the flavors nicely. Medium body beer with a nice, medium length bitter apple cider finish. Not many layers in terms of flavor, but an overall enjoyable beer. I love the raw, bread scents.

The aroma is ginger, citrus. Very nice. The appearance is a hazy yellow, white head. The flavor is ginger, candi sugar, citrus hops. The mouthfeel is on the thin sode of medium. The finish is booze, sugar, citrus. Overly sweet. Not bad at all.

DeanF (1746) - Nunavut, CANADA - AUG 22, 2010
Plenty of hops on the nose but little else. Extra points for being served in a ridiculously tall glass, with plenty of head. A little ostentatious, but memorable for sure. Flavour is a great mix of hops and malts, with a nice sharp finish. It’s a brilliant and extravagant beer.

Vaiz (3601) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 18, 2010
Bottle, popped with a bang, slight gusher. Clear golden pour, very thick foamy white head leaving lacing. Aroma is of Belgian hops, spices, yeast and some light fruits. Flavor is slightly sweet, quite bitter, spicy and with quite some Belgian hops. Very lively carbonation and a creamy to bubbly texture.

HenrikSoegaard (10980) - Randers, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2010
Bottle courtesy Hansen. Creamy white excellent fully lasting head. Yellow colour. Bad light malty and hoppy slightly sour aroma. Moderate bitter and light sweet vinius flavor. Almost barlleywine like. Average moderate bitter finish. Creamy palate. Strange beer.

DalzAle (2000) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - AUG 14, 2010
Bottle. Over carbonated clear golden yellow pour, and an aroma of sweet sugary malt. Flavor is also sweet malt\, syrupy peaches, hay and finished dry, bitter and a little warming with booze on the aftertaste. Not bad at $5/bottle.

kidmartinek (3741) - austin, Texas, USA - AUG 8, 2010
Light cloudy lemonade yellow. Obnoxious white head won’t let the beer show through. Malty nose. Is this supposed to be a belgian? A little bit of hop resin. A confused beer, where yhe hops or the malt can dominate and win. The foamy head is the mosr entertaining partf of this beer. The body is quite heavy and the finish... pucker.

baraciisch (2070) - California, USA - AUG 3, 2010
Golden orange with a foamy white head... Citrus and floral aroma... Flavor is citrus sweetness, alcohol content is fairly apparent, not much bitterness on the palate... Don’t really know why they call it hopus, there’s only a hint of bitterness on the finish... Decent

RichardW (1583) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2010
Bottle, Open All Hours, Keswick. Foaming and livey ale, with plenty of sugary sweetness. Some faintly burnt caramel underlying, with a bit of butterscotch and toffee apple in there too. Warming finish, with some apple flavour and a touch of copper in the roof of the mouth.
