Looks like an Amber ale to me. Pours amber with a thick tan head. Good retention. Aroma had sweet malts, lemon, lime, citrus and cookie. Taste was like a tripel and IPA combined which was weird but sort of effective. Not a bad beer, yet not something I would drink regularly.

So ... what is a Belgian IPA? Is this a combination of Belgian yeast with American hops? I can’t tell. Wonderful Amber color, cloudy, with a great head ... looks more Belgian than a filtered American IPA. Citrus bitterness? Not European hops? Appearance best part of this one. I did not form strong negative impressions, but I did not form strong positive impressions either. Need to try again.

Couleur ambrée vêtue d’une énorme mousse blanche et crémeuse adhérant bien à la paroi du verre. Herbes, levures ainsi qu’une touche fruitée sous une forte présence de sucre candi. Houblonnage radical et dominant semble hors contexte et surtout pas dans la balance ou la palette de saveurs souhaitées. Finale astringente et pou creuse, corps d’épaisseur semi mince. Servi en fût, Blind Tiger, N.Y., Septembre 2005.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 1/5   OVERALL 10/20
Rastacouere (6107) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 6, 2005
Huge rocky white head tops the cloudy amber body and stays there forever. Gentle cookie malts are taken aback by the enormous limey, lemony and leafy hop bite. Soily earthiness and yeast dryness (cement like) don’t help to stabilize the extreme dryness. Chew on a hopsack type of bitterness brings on a lot of chalky astringency in the finish. Sage and basil spiciness don’t necessarily contribute any charm. Light-medium body, mineral, overdone to me, this is just too dry and I fear the hop variety chosen could have been more mellow, more floral rather than citric and astringent.
