nimbleprop (7460) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 8, 2010
16oz can pours a hazy orange with a creamy, white head. Nose is sugary... and that’s kinda it. Flavor is sugary, boozy, tropical fruits. Full bodied, sticky finish.

blankboy (7216) - 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

jackl (7063) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Can @ Three Notch’d Tasting. Deep gold pour with a small head. The nose is quite fruity. Estery banana and nectarine. Fruit leather. Taste of Belgian countryside, earthy apple skin. Peaches. Sweet finish. Medium body, soft carbonation.

swoopjones (7021) - Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 22, 2013
Draft at Blue Monk, golden yellow pour, fuller body. Aromas of candi sugar, bubblegum, fruity yeastiness. Flavors follow up aromas similarly. Light herbal notes. Sweet herbal finish. Nice

Cletus (6355) - 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.

Mora2000 (6155) - McKinney, Texas, USA - APR 1, 2013
Yellow with a white head. Aroma is full of grain and wheat with some grass thrown in. Flavor is bready with some grass and orange citrus notes. A little bit of spice from the yeast. Alcohol is also present. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Glouglouburp (6103) - 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.

egajdzis (6100) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 14, 2011
Hazy dark golden color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, citrus fruits, grass, spices, vanilla, toffee, and light alcohol. Taste of citrus, spices, vanilla, toffee malts, and bitter hops with a touch of alcohol in the finish.

BuckeyeBoy (5962) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 16, 2010
Can thanks to JohnGalt1. Pours out golden topped a nice white head. Aroma was of belg yeast, spice, crisp citrus hops, and some dough. Taste was more of the crisp hop notes along with a nice spice.
