COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Night in Brussels is a Belgian-style American IPA with malts from Belgium, a blend of American hops, pure cane sugar in the best southern tradition, and an authentic Belgian yeast strain. A pleasing marriage of old- and new-world beer cultures, this unique ale is best understood as an American IPA on a Belgian road trip.

Old rating. A decent hybrid. Biscuit base, orange, lemon peel, some Belgian spice. Okay stuff.

Bottle shared by Dr Silverworm. Poured clear golden color with an average frothy white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate complex hop and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate sweet flavor with a moderate bittersweet finish of medium duration. This a solid brew.

Tap, piano bar terminal 5 Atlanta airport. Bought this thinking it was just another IPA (name was obscured), then I had a sniff. Spicy Belgian aroma, beautiful rocky head, slightest of haze. A perfectly executed example of the style.

ChainGangGuy (4486) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 13, 2015
22 ounce bottle - Bullock’s Wine & Spirits in Marietta, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a lightly hazed, light gold-toned body with a medium-sized, whitish head. Scant lacing.

Smell: Fruity hops smelling of juicy Valencia oranges and a side sliver of melon and lemon peel. Predominately biscuity malts fellow with a touch of implied sweetness.

Taste: With a start toasted biscuit tops a sweetish, honeyish taste follows with a bit of grain. Peppery, lightly citrusy with a small hint of melon given a small boost from the spicy yeast. Moderate bitterness. Swiftly drying as you near the well carbonated, bitterish finish, just of bit of which lingers into the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation for a good, frothy mouthfeel.

Overall: It’s fairly drinkable and likable. The hops aren’t overly pronounced, but I prefer ’em well-rounded as opposed to jagged and disjointed.

12 oz bottle shared by DrSilverworm. Pours a mostly clear golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet bubblegum character over toasted bread, light grassy, herbal hops, mild bitterness, light fruit, decent but forgettable.

DrSilverworm (7959) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 11, 2015
12oz bottle, purchased 2/23/15 from Habersham in Savannah. Shared with local raters. Date on neck reads 101614. Clear golden orange color. Thin off-white head. Few bits of lace. Biscuity aroma, touch of butter maybe. Citrus, spice, mild belgian yeast. Medium-plus body. Kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Bigger bitter taste, mild heat. lighter sweetness. Solid belgian IPA, better than expected, especially for it’s age. Lots of American citrus hop on this, kind of spicy. Not as belgian-sweet-yeasty as expected.

Hangover (1086) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - DEC 29, 2014
Clear golden pour with a very thin white head. Aroma is yeasty with caramel malts and a faint whiff of floral hops. Nice crisp flavor, strong floral notes and a musty Belgian yeast notes. Crisp finish, dry. Toured this brewery, nice place, seem to respect the craft.
