Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Hazy golden with a lovely, staying, creamy, white head. Nice lacings. Lovely aroma with hops, grapefruity, green apple. Some yeast, oranges. Mild vinious, fairly malty sweet. Medium carbonation, creamy and light dry mouthfeel. Flavour starts nicely malty sweet, some estery yeast, light oranges. Good hops bite, lots of grapefruit and pine. Long, lingering vinious and fine bitter aftertaste. Very good and balanced hoppy Belgian style beer.

Well, the PHX crew had this so I drank my bottle alone. ;) Pours a hazy golden with a large fluffy white head. Aroma is hops, grass, malt, fruits, yeasts. Flavor is fruity, yeasty, wheat, grass, a good dose of hop bitterness, very balanced, wow this is really fantastic.

750ml bottle. Pours a nice cloudy orange with a big, pilloy head. Not much head retention. Immediate notes of grassy/citrusy hops on the nose. Holy shit, I was not expecting that from a BSA. The palate goes from oranges, spices, grassy, and earthy fruit to a somewhat bitter finish courtesy of the hops. Overall, this is a very solid beer. However, compared to what I expect from BSAs (dark fruit and booze), I was left begging for more.

Big thanks to the state of Wisconsin for this bottle. From a 750mL bottle. Pour is hazy orange with yellow highlights. Large white head that quickly fades. Large hop presence in the aroma. Orange, nice clove-like spice character, and maybe some bananas. Flavor is similar with strong citrus flavors followed by a nice spicy clove flavor. Beer finishes slightly bitter and grassy. Pretty solid offering.

0.75 l bottle at Petalax Beer Festival 2010. Hazy yellow color. Perfumed aroma with flowery-citrusy hops. Herbal, spicy and bitter flavor with clove, orange and lemony-grapefruity hops. Astringent mouthfeel. Citrusy hops and spicy yeast clash here.

Beerman6686 (4710) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2010
This poured a lighter cloudy straw color with a white head. Aroma was of fresh fruity hops, and belgian spices and yeast. Flavor was a nice bouquet of flavors including bright floral and citrus hops, belgian spices, yeast and some sourness too. Really different and interesting.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 14, 2010
Pours gold with a generous white head. Smells of perfumy hops, wildflowers, metallic, dry pilsner malt. Tastes of dry malt, some citrus hints, perfumy, some spicy hints. Crisp finish. Nice balance and full body.

ROGUE (2127) - Newark, Delaware, USA - JUL 14, 2010
750ml bottle. Pours an extremely cloudy pale orange color, a little lighter yellow around the edges. Lots of yeasty floaters, with a chunky off white head that leaves a thick layer of lacing. A citrus hop aroma dominated the nose, with lesser yeast and doughy malt aromas in the background. Flavor has lots of citrus hops and some pine and then finishes with a spicey yeast bite with some light boozyness. Mouthfeel is rich, with light carbonation.
