sebletitje (6582) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 29, 2010
Wash. DC tasting. Up the Irons on this one ... every Maiden’s dream come true with this classic song. Pours orange, white head. aroma is malty, Belgian dubbel abbey style yeast with some lingering hops adding a mild bitter finish, light candi sugar complementing the mild caramel malt approach. Overall, good beer, I’d buy it just for the can design. \m/

deyholla (6486) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - APR 27, 2011
On tap at Ginger Man Norwalk. Poured a hazy yellow with an orange hue and a white head that dissipated slowly and laced slightly. Aroma was sweet with grain and light fruits and had a backing of light citrus and grassy hops. Flavor was similar with a sweet start and the hops coming out a bit with a bit of dryness in the finish. Somewhat heavy carbonation.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 4, 2010
Canned; draught at Gingerman. Pours straw color with a generous, sustained white head. Smells of dry malt, some light funky hints, touches of coriander and candi sugar. Tastes dry and restrained with peppery splashes and a sweet finish. This one would be really great if it were more dry, but all in all, a good hommage to Duvel and other similar beers.

phaleslu (6204) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Can shared by DrSilverworm - thanks again, Chris! Pours a hazy, pale yellow-gold with a small white head. The aroma is very malty - crackers, bread, pale, cereal, sourdough - with straw and pears. Flavor of sweet cereal and bready malts, dried apricot, golden raisins, pear, and vanilla. A hint of pepper. Medium-bodied, with moderate to medium carbonation and a malty mouthfeel. Good, malty Belgian. Like a tripel.

KyotoLefty (6145) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 28, 2014
Can. Deep, cloudy orange, lace. Malty, fruity nose, biscuits, oranges. Very fruity and malty, though dry. Nice fruits, estery, with a dry finish, and full body.

blankboy (5948) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2013
Can [12oz]. Pours a hazy gold with an average size semi-lasting frothy off-white head. Aroma of light grassy hops, herbs, yeast, light candi sugar and light spices. Sweet, slightly overly so, yeasty flavour along with herbs, grassy hops, bready malt and light spices. Gets slightly less sweet as it warms a bit. Average bodied. I found this just O.K. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Glouglouburp (5938) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 30, 2010
In short: A strangely fruity IPA. Not fun.
How: Tap at Delaney’s Tap Room, New Haven, CT
The look: Cloudy orangy-blonde body topped by a medium white head
In long: Nose is rather fruity for an IPA going in more directions than the usual citrus, tropical fruits and friends. Taste is more of the same with a bunch of fruits including peaches, grapefruits, fresh green bananas, pears, ripe apples and more. Mild bitterness. Finish lacks definition and the beer leaves a ripe fruits after-taste. In was on tap at a “ratebeer approved” pub so I’m assuming the beer was relatively fresh. But it tasted tired and past due-date. Weird. You might think it would be maddening to be the next door neighbor of The Beast with the screaming and heavy hoofing. But think about 566, the downstairs neighbour of the beast.

12oz can... Thanks to Mike L. for this one! Shared with caterwaul and phaleslu. Hazy orange golden color. Thin off-white head. Leaves good bits of lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, crisp, lighter carbonation. Some good pear, vanilla flavors. Moderate sweet taste. Very lightly spicy. Some moderate bitterness. Interesting, unusual stuff. Solid, interesting belgian strong! Stange, unusual.. But better than expected. Looking at the can, I see that it’s brewed with some pilsner malts, and I see that now.. Works well. A nice light pepperiness to it.

Can. Pours hazy golden orange with a white head. Fruity and light yeasty, hints of spices, light peach, and a nice dry floral hoppy finish. Pretty good.
