BigMomma (223) - Leuven, BELGIUM - APR 17, 2010
UPDATED: APR 19, 2011 33cl bottle with bracket
Poured in two glasses. The beer in the big glass has a clear yellow to golden color and the 2cm sediment left in the bottle poured in the small glass has a very hazy yellow color. The head is huge and leaves very sticky lacing.
The aroma is sweet malty with some spices and hops. Taste is sweet malty with a large amount of fresh hops creating a nice bitterness. The aftertaste is sweet hoppy and dry bitter.
A good belgian strong ale.

Embrouille (2827) - SWITZERLAND - APR 15, 2010
Bottled 33cl. Ordered from www.bierzwerg.de. It pours a moderately hazy golden beer with a huge mountainous head. The aroma is nicely hoppy (5 different varieties) with acacia, honey, orange, peach, cloves and candy floss showing up. Good yeast profile. Spicy, peppery on the swallow. Relatively strong carbonation. Full bodied. The alcohol is nicely hidden. Beautiful lacework. Good bitterness. Dryish finish which is reminiscent of acacia, cloves and mandarin orange. A tasty beer.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown! / Waikato, NEW ZEALAND - APR 13, 2010
Bottle. Clear golden with a frothy white head. Malt, spice and underlying hoppy notes. The flavour is caramel, spice and mild fruit. Medium bodied. A dry hoppy bite in the finish. Not overly good.

3fourths (7978) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 12, 2010
hazed golden body, white head. sweet candy sugar, wheat and pale malt nose - honey, lavendar/soap from the yeast, but mostly honey and other sugars. medium body and sticky. overly sweet and chewy candy sugar dominates. hops are muted and act only as an accent. resinous and sweet. not my thing.

Sledutah (4660) - Utah, USA - APR 10, 2010
Cool little 330ml swingtop bottle from City Beer in SF
Appearance: Slightly hazy yellow/amber with a huge overflowing creamy white head and lots of lacing in the glass
Aroma: Belgium yeast, citrus and some off flavors
Taste: Thin mouthfeel. Slightly sour malts and yeast. Not a very good beer. Drinkable, but no hops that I could smell or taste. It had some strange flavors going on, I think it was slightly infected.

bartazo (87) - Esztergom, HUNGARY - APR 5, 2010
0,33 literes üvegből kóstolva. Opálos (ez általában jó előjel az íznek) mangósárga színű ital, szép magas, közepesen tartós habbal a tetején. Friss gyümölcs illat, egy kis szőlővel és citrommal. Íze nagyon erősen komlós, de mégis frissen gyümölcsös is. minden korty egy kicsit más, egyszer kicsit fémes, máskor szőlőhéj vagy éppen mazsola íz bukkan elő. A meghatározó komló viszont nagyon sokáig jelen van, hosszú utóízt biztosítva. Tetszik.

oldrtybastrd (3223) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 3, 2010
Shared this one w/ SkyCop32. Pours a hazy medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty, hoppy, yeasty. Flavor is moderately sweet, highly alcoholic, citrus.

Maltador (63) - Paris, FRANCE - MAR 27, 2010
Plenty of aromas. Herbal and Ffower hops, yeast, malt. Sweetness on the beginning following by tasty bitterness. It is not overloaded despite 5 different hops in it. In the contrary it deploys his refreshing side with refinement.

puzzl (3249) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 20, 2010
Bottled. Gorgeous pour, big rocky white head. Aroma is very dry, wheaty, horse blanket, bitter hop, perhaps some tomahawk, some British stuff. Light, fruity flavor, some yogurt, cucumber, a bit lactic. Pretty weak for a Belgian IPA.
