Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - AUG 8, 2012
750 ml bottle. A hazy pale to medium amber beer, with a huge, frothy, lacing, virtually fully lasting off-white head. The aroma is moderately malty (cookies, caramel), moderately hoppy (grapefruit, apricot, pine neeldes, herbs), lightly yeasty (dough), with notes of exotic fruits, pepper, hint of banana. The flavor is heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, long finish with moderate bitterness, moderately alcoholic. It slightly exceeds in sweetness, but I wouldn’t call it unbalanced. A bit sticky, but never palate scratching. Nice lacing and a lot of nuances in the nose. Thumbs up for this one.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 5, 2012
Bottle, 33 cm, unclear orange with 1/2 a finger off white head. Aroma has notes of caramel, preach, passion fruit, citrus. Taste is heavy sweet malty with a fruity hoppy, lingering bitter finish, some astringency and a herbal note. Full bodied. Soft carbonation. Wellmade American-style DIPA with a discrete Begian touch.

samvds (20) - Oudenaarde, BELGIUM - AUG 5, 2012
Amber colored, dry, hoppy, orange taste. Appearance is great, nice head, but a little bit too normal to get a high rating.

TBone (15714) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 22, 2012
Bottled 330ml (BZ, BB 12/2013)
Deep amber color, small steady white head. Herbal and spicey hoppy nose with hints of caramel. Medium-bodied. Front is more like Belgian strong ale: caramel, plum, bready notes. Then finishing with strong Simcoe notes and allaround bitterness and alcohol. Quite warming aftertaste. Solid De Proef -quality.

imdownthepub (12813) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2012
Bottled 330ml at The Holborn Whippet, Holborn, London. Gold with white head. This came over as really hoppy, heady, dry and bitter. Lasting on the palate. Really quite pleasant though heavy on the alcohol front.

upsilon (1) - - JUL 17, 2012 does not count
Unremarkable IPA from Belgium. Contains the trademark Belgian high alcohol content without much else to make it stand out from the crowd.

Swaroga (1956) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 16, 2012
33cl bottle. Filtered golden with medium white head. Nose : tart, spices like ginger, some alcohol , orange zest. Sip : low to medium density body with fluffy texture. Sweet with deep and bitter notes of burned charcoal, wood raisin and citrus zest. Tart. Alcohol. Overall it’s an intensive beer with lot’s of character. OK.

brugmanneke (283) - GERMANY - JUL 10, 2012
(33 cl bottle) Orange colour, off-white head. Aroma of apricot jam, oranges, citrus peel, caramel, with a hint of glazed carrots on the nose. Belgian yeast very present. Sweetish taste, but luckily with a bitter finish. Palate is full-bodied, with light carbonation. Alcohol not well disguised. A bit sweet for me, but this and the yeasty aroma indeed give it a Belgian touch. Good!

gbe75 (130) - ICELAND - JUL 8, 2012
Hazy and golden in color. Nice white head when poured in the glass. Carbonation looks lively. Smell of citrus and earth. Good beer but needs more taste in my opinion.
