Now this is something. It is cloudy orange in color w/ a head of large bubbles and lots of lace. The nose is very potent sweet florals w/ a dusting of baby powder and lavender. Sweet and sticky on the palate, this comes off as rather sluggish despite a pretty high level of carbonation. The sweetness does compliment a juicy banana element but it tends to cloy a bit. I am not sure quite what they were going for w/ this beer but I think it fails both as an IPA and as a Belgian tripel. Neither of those styles should be as heavy as this is. I can appreciate it as sort of a Belgian barleywine w/ itís thickness and light alcohol burn but I really canít get into it in general.

I have brewed my own Belgian-IPA and I always what to try the latest in the evolution of this style to see how I am doing. 11.2 oz bottle, this one is a new creation form this brewery. The bright orange cap has the date 23/02/12, Iíll assume that is its best by date, I want to enjoy the hops so iíll take it now. It is another Belgian Tripel/IPA combo beer. Pours into my tulip a deep clear amber, the head is big and white and recedes decently slowly, leaving spotted lacing. The smell is pretty good here, some citrus, tropical, grass, and slight pine arise form the hops, the yeast is there with a punchy spice and the malt backbone adds some depth and sweetness. The taste is pretty good. It isnít bitter at all. It is a tropical fruit bomb that isnít out of control with the pineapple. The yeast is a bit more subtle in the flavor but provides once again a nice spice. The malt is very sweet and you can feel this one at 9%. It tastes a ton like my BIPA, definitely some noble hops, I also had some Americans too but i donít taste it here. This is a unique recipe that should be tried by BIPA lovers.

Not bad; not great. Poured with a large, thick, creamy, foamy, frothy, cream colored head and lots of lace. Color is a very hazy to cloudy medium amber. Aroma is lots of caramel, malt, toffee, hops, a little fruit. Flavor is like nose with bittersweetness standing out. Body is full and good although it has alcohol warming. Finish is like flavor and of medium length.

In short: A yeasty and fruity American style IIPA... made in Belgium!! Too easy to drink 9% hop-fix.
How: Bottle 330ml. Consumed when about 6 months old or less (6 months after first bottle rating)
The look: Cloudy shining blonde-orange body topped by a huge white head with good retention
In long: The nose is not very intense and it is mostly fruity with oranges, pineapples and grapefruits. Taste starts with doughy yeast and discreet bready malts (white bread). Then comes the grassy and fruity hops (oranges, pineapples and grapefruits) with a medium bitterness and a little alcohol bite. Pleasant dryness and fruity flavors in the finish. Overall very low sweetness sensation. This is a lot more sessionnable than I expected from a 9% IIPA. This could really pass as an American IIPA. Iím not sure if I am I supposed to rejoice or be depressed that Belgium now brews American style IIPA. In a way this is a typical American IPA but the fact that it is made in Belgium makes it both straightforward and unexpected, like a fortune cookie that says "You will poop me."

vyvvy (3999) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - FEB 21, 2011
Pours very hazy orange / light amber with a good sized white head. The aroma is faint with some orange, plastic and band aids. Medium / full body with lots of sharp carbonation. The flavor begins with nectar fruits, plastic, earthy and funky hops, some caramel, phenolic spice, toasty malt and earthy yeast. The finish adds some pine and apricot along with a good amount of spicy hops. Nice beer.
