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.

Nice beer as a regular IPA, but I don’t taste hardly any Belgian character here. Nice thick tight head. Looks great in the glass. Earthier hop aroma and that is the first flavor you get. Kinda watery on the finish. Easy drinking for its strength

Thanks southbierbro!! Pours a nice deep gold color with a tinge of haze and an off-white head. The smell is yeast, citrus, fruit, some caramel. The taste is toasted malt, marshmallow candy, fruit. The body is medium with average carbonation.

Many thanks to John for sharing. Fruity interesting beginning. Hints of soft Belgian Ale-yeast, fresh smooth and sticky piney hops. Still highly drinkable. Nice fresh floral hops with a nice fresh hoppy and not too bitter aftertaste. Nice but not too intense in hops. The Belgian yeast is great though.

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.

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.
