CampesinoTino (799) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 23, 2012
Bomber. Pours a light golden orange color with solid beige foam. The aroma has lots of hops resin and tropical fruit (mango,guava, passion fruit) along with a mild Belgian yeast presence in the background. The flavor starts out tart and bitter with a mix of lemon, ruby red grapefruit, orange rind and pineapple notes in addition to some clove, coriander and honey. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with soft carbonation and a bitter, alcohol warming finish. This could easily have been a bitter, boozy mess but instead turns out to be a rather tasty Belgian style DIPA.

Bottle (22oz ): Light golden with no real head. Belgian yeast aroma. Taste is sweet and somewhat fruity. Not much bitterness. Alcohol hits in the end, but easy drinking.

Very sublime. Surprisingly easy drinking considering the ABV. Belgian yeast. Some dark fruits. Sorta quad lite, with a hint of trippel.

22oz bottle pours out a hazy orangeish topped with a sand head. Nose is belg yeast spice candy sugar and some hops. Taste is more of the belg yeast spice banana clove and some sweetness.

MunBro (804) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - APR 19, 2015
A very nice Belgian that stands out amoung others. Very sweet and earthy for a Belgian with nice floral notes, but it also has the expected yeastiness and layers of complexity. Delicous!

Had several buddies over for beer and ribs. Sampled a number of brews throughout the evening. This immediately stood out, even after my palate was fatigued with rich food and beer. Outstanding floral character. To a man, from the neophyte beer drinker to more discerning palate, they enjoyed this beer at my table.

ACHops (957) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 18, 2015
On tap @ Chuck’s 85th. Pours clear dark orange copper with thin lacy white head. Aroma is sweet earthy oaky malt with sweet Belgian yeast notes and a hint of dry hops. Taste is similar: malt is sweet although fairly mild given the abv here. Funky yeast notes mid-palate are quickly overwhelmed by dry earthy hops. Oaky, lightly sweet, dry, and ultimately clean on the finish. Interesting hybrid of a Belgian strong ale and IPA - sort of surprised this isn’t done more often, this is good.

AgentAle (1071) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 25, 2014
Aroma is clove, saison-like yeastiness, lemon grass and light sweet malts. Taste is a fairly well balanced malt profile. Slight honey and dark fruits. Appearance is a clear orange with a pearl head that retains fairly poorly.

ljthiessen (719) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 19, 2014
On tap. Sweet candy flavours, belgian yeast. some heat but hides the ABV pretty well. Pretty good for the style.

Boutip (5181) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 3, 2014
Bottle: Poured a cloudy dirty orangey color ale with a nice foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of tropical fruits with some unrefined grainy notes is not as I was expecting. Taste is also dominated by fruity tropical hops notes with some unrefined grainy notes and some light residual sugar notes. Body is quite full with good carbonation with no real apparent alcohol. Not bad but something appeared to be a bit off with the malt bill.

bulldogops (1140) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 27, 2014
Rating #1051 - April 7, 2014 -On tap at the Underground, 12 oz pour, 10%. Clear golden pour with a giant head with decent retention. Gorgeous, tropical aroma billows out - pineapple, mango, passionfruit. Taste is definitely full bodied, good yeast character, and just enough spice to be pleasant and refreshing. Generously hopped but not weightily bittered. Phenomenal.
