Smiske R-Ale draft@ZBF 2011: “truesteamdryhoped” version, where a Hop Randall was used, I tried the version with Cascade hops, earlier in the day, poured a very cloudy, hazy orange, the structure was very grainy, chewy-like, taste was very strong on dry hops, followed by citrus, oranges & some yeast, with the dry hops leading to a very bitter aftertaste, it was like a hop, citrus-flavoured milkshake, all over the place, very unbalanced but very interesting & lovely

DSG (10950) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 13, 2011
[3/6/11] Draught at ZBF 2011. As "Smiske R-Ale" poured through a Randall. Hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of fruit esters (banana, apples and more) and a bit of citric notes. Slightly strange flavor with yeast, fruits, something I can’t put my finger on and some slightly unpleasant phenols. Finishes bitter with some hops. Medium-bodied.

Bottled@Pressklubben, Stockholm. Slightly hazy orangeish golden colour, small beigeish head. Aroma is fruits, sweet malts, mild herbal notes as well as some quite pleasant earthy spicyness. Wellbalanced and quite bodied.

Abio (1831) - Waasland, BELGIUM - MAR 7, 2011
Tasted the R-ale at ZBF. Light cloudy orange coloured, a medium sized head that holds ok. The smell is a bit hard to get at first, but the beer was served to cold I think. Hops, and citrus fruits. The taste was refreshing, bitter hops with citrus, some yeast also. While warming a more sweet taste started to comes up through the sour-biterness, with soms spices finds his way trough also.

Draught (Pressklubben, Stockholm, shared by Omhper, thanks) - Hazy golden with a white head. Fruity, yeasty and hoppy aroma with notes of lemon and some musty elements detected. Sweet, fruity and hoppy taste with more citrus notes and some spicy elements. Not bad, if nothing remarkable.

WisconsinBeer (716) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - FEB 12, 2011
Bottle. Hazy yellow orange, massive whipped eggwhite foamy head. Flavor is pale malts, bread and a hint of yeast. Nice mild backbone of candi sugars and a fresh hop profile to dry it out a bit. Solid easy sipping Belgian pale ale. Tasty.

Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - FEB 12, 2011
Pours a very hazy lemon orange with extremely think frothy white head. Aroma is a lot of bitter citrus (grapefruit) and some grainy metallic notes with cereal aroma as well. Flavor is very bready with undertones of caramel and brown sugar/candi sugar. Cotton candy flavors come out. Coriander present. Body is creamy but full of carbonation.

MoritzF (9151) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JAN 23, 2011
(bottle, 33cl) Cloudy, pale golden colour with a big and blond foamy head. Yeasty and distinctively citrus-fruity and slightly zesty aroma with pale malt and herbal, spicy hops. Bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied with a lively carbonation. Pale malt character with grainy spots, notes of citrus and herbal, slightly peppery hops; dry-ish and moderately bitter and herbal hoppy finish with subtle fruity notes and an astringent aftertaste. 18.I.11
