malrubius (1715) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JUN 2, 2014
Bottle from Save On. Bright hazy orange gold with small head and some lace. Lovely perfumy lemon pastry aroma -- one of my favorites. Wonder which hop/yeast that is. Mild pineapple mango fruity sweetness with assertive complex citrus/spicy/grassy bitter dry finish. Medium-light for abv. Effervescent. Probably should have a bigger head. Might be my new Worthy Kitchen glass. Excellent.

ClubGonzo (4030) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 1, 2014
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a slightly hazy straw yellow body with a small white head. Nose is Belgian ale yeast, citric peel, straw, hay, pale malts and hints of white chewing gum and muscovado grapes. Taste is citric peel, Belgian ale yeast, white chewing gum, straw, alcohol, green apples, grapes and hints of hay. Semi-dry finish. Medium body, medium to high carbonation. A decent fruity and light-colored BSA without any big surprises.

poisoneddwarf (1716) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - JUN 1, 2014
12 oz bottle. Aroma is doughy, funky, lemony, grainy, cheesy. Pours hazy pale golden with a white head that recedes fairly quickly. Taste is earthy, sweet with a bitter finish; has a nice dusty presence. Finely carbonated with a medium body. Good beer, but it’s not blowing my load or anything.

pete4999 (1045) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAY 31, 2014
On tap at Blue Monk in Buffalo, NY. Pours a nice clear golden yellow, pale white head. Listed as a saison but extremely boozy for the style...the Belgian Strong Ale style seems more apt. Heavy on the Belgian spice. Another nice American-Belgian from Stillwater.

hopmelt (190) - Painesville TWP, Ohio, USA - MAY 30, 2014
Pours hazy light golden, slight creamy head, lots of lacing. Aroma tropical fruit, slight bubblegum and phenolic esters, slight pilsner malt sweetness, a hint of spicy noble hops. Taste tropical and stone fruits, sweet bready malt, slight balancing bitterness, phenolic and bubblegum esters. Mouthfeel fuller dude of medium body, medium carbonation, slight hop astringency, finish on the dry side of balanced. Overall tasty, has all the elements of the style, nothing stands out, I like the added bitterness this beer has.

On tap at Garden Cafe on Broadway. Nice aroma but perhaps not memorable. Nice opacity. Taste is stellar, with a nice hint of coriander that’s not overpowering. Palate is rather cleaner than I expected. Overall a stellar go-to beer.
