mtjoseph (244) - Murderapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 4, 2011
Bomber. Pours a golden orange with a decent sized white head. Really big perfume notes on the aggressively hopped nose with some floral presence in the back. An effervescent, dry body follows with a lot of minerals, earthy hops, light fruit (pear maybe?), and fresh cut grass. Hoppy upfront, weird middle palate, and dry fast finish. Worth trying for $4.99, but nothing special.

On tap at New Holland on our way to RBSG. Pours a clear gold, a little watery looking, with a thin white head. Fuzzy hops, a bit of musk. Weird sweet plastic falvors, tingly odd flavors to it. Long bitter f inish, something off here, but I’m not sure what.

TheAlum (5575) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - JUL 23, 2010
Sampler at the brewpub (Holland, MI). Missed this last time in town. Pours a crisp clean golden yellow, a decent whitish head that dies to a smaller film, clinging to the edges. Good lacing. Aromas are a bit fruity, some light esters and some citrus mix with bready malts, pretty light overall. Initial is medium bodied with a pretty big dose of Belgian yeast, apples and pears right off the bat moving into bread and a telltale Belgian yeasty spice. Vanilla, a touch of clove, orange peel and light florals provide a light bitterness. Sweet up front with lingering fruits, a touch of sweetness. Pretty fruity, restrained bitterness. Quite flavorful, not overly sweet as expected. Dry, a touch of honey, fruity esters, more orange and floral slanted hoppiness. Not bad

Tmoney99 (10462) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 11, 2010
On tap. Poured clear golden color with an average fizzy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate tart citrus and yeast aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

Silphium (3161) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUN 15, 2010
On tap at New Holland. Translucent straw-orange body, thin off-white head. Citrusy hops nose, spicy, with some pineappley tart character and esters. Spicy hops body, citrusy and bitter with light, tart, fermented fruit (pear, pineapple), herbs, esters (including clove) and toasty, biscuity malts. Well-done, complex, and strays from the overt sweetness and heavy body that plagues many of these "Belgian" IPAs.

deyholla (6511) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 15, 2010
On tap. Poured clear gold with a white head that dissipated, but left a nice lace while it lasted. Aroma was mainly sweet grains with a bit of biscuit and hay and just a hint of underlying floral notes. The flavor had more floral with the sweet grains that mainly had a biscuit note.

bu11zeye (11933) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - AUG 20, 2009
(Draught) Pours a lightly hazy golden body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of bubblegum, mustiness, pepper, and coriander. Flavor of Belgian yeast, light soap, citrus, and candi sugar with a somewhat chalky finish.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 12, 2009
Pours a semi clear golden colour with a small white head. Sampled at The Local Tavern-pre party night...Nioce and spicey but nothing that stood out too much. A pleasent creamy yet very clean mouthfeel. Soft fruity aftertaste. Great beer, but maybe a tad soft in the style.

Sammy (8405) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 9, 2009
On tap at the brewpub. Deep yellow with a white head and some lacing. Yeasty and spicey taste, some sourness. Yeasty aroma. Average mouthfeel. Drying. Fine for style, although I was not a big fan of it.
