Bottle. Pour is hazy orange with a large white head. Aroma is full of caramel malt, light citrus hop, banana, light champagne, and faint resinous hop. Flavor is full of caramel malt, resinous hops and a nice banana bread component. This is pretty nice and pretty bold. But clean.

jredmond (5297) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JAN 16, 2011
Draft at blind tiger with Linh. Pours a deep hazy amber orange body with thin white lacing. Aroma is full of malty bread notes. Mouthfeel is full, the nose starts out full of flavor, then mellows out in the finish.

Unusual variation on an Ambree - with new hopping - could be an english hop variety.... worthwhile seeking out...

PotjeBier (1641) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 14, 2011
33 cl bottle from De Bierkoning. Pours a nice orange color, a bit hazy, and a big creamy off white head. Good lacing. Aroma’s are not very strong, hop aromatic, sweet fruit, a bit spicy and malty. Flavor is somewhat fruity sweet and lightly bitter, well balanced. Dry, bitter finish, but not harsh. Very nice balanced brew.

bhensonb (10908) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 11, 2011
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours hazy amber with a foamy beige head. There’s a malt background, but there’s a lot of floral and fruit aroma. Near full bodied. Very fruity hop with lots of florality. We could be talking light stone fruit here. And it’s pretty smooth with no heat bite. Fresh. Flavorful. Excellent.

Vir4030 (508) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 11, 2011
Labeled a Belgian Triple IPA. Pours a cloudy light brown with a thick head. Alcohol aroma, milder than most Belgians. Yes, it’s dry, hoppy bite, and alcohol bite. Not a favorite, but an interesting brew.

Boutip (4677) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 9, 2011
Bottle: Poured a dark beige color ale with a big foamy head with good retention and some very good lacing. Aroma of strong Belgian malt backbone with light sweet undertones. Taste is also a nice mix between some nice Belgian malt with balanced sweetness and some light pepper notes. Body is quite full with limited filtration and good carbonation. Enjoyable and well brewed without rewriting the rule book.

BeerandBlues2 (9588) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JAN 8, 2011
Bottle, cap dated 03.06.2010. Pours hazy orange with a large, frothy and rocky light beige head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (bread, cookie, caramel), heavy hops (floral, citrus, spicy), and average esters (apple/pear) with notes of cellar and peaches. Flavor is heavy malt (bread, cookie, caramel), heavy hops (floral, citrus, spicy), and average esters (apple/pear) with notes of cellar, alcohol, and candied peaches. Full body, medium warmth and carbonation, low creaminess with a dry and biting/spicy finish. This beer would likely be much better fresh, as there are some aging qualities working against this beer. It seems like candi sugar was used to boost gravity and enhance dryness, similar to many other strong Belgian styles.

Daytonbeer (641) - Ohio, USA - JAN 7, 2011
Pours a cloudy golden brown with large white head. Excellent lacing. Aroma is faint hops and fruit. Taste of grapefruit and hops. Nice carbonation and oily texture. It definitely improved as it warmed.

Rastacouere (6125) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 3, 2011
A spectacular tower of off-white foam thrones above the cloudy yet glowing deep golden orange. Beautiful. Fruit-forward aroma with juicy apricot-peaches and tropical fruits (litchi!) accents amid flowery, piney, foresty meadows. At the same time, it has a desserty notion, but from the bready yeast and from the pastry-like malts. Dulls down a bit too quickly, particularly its engaging carbonation, but this is a seducing, perfumey ale whose high sugar contents (sweet pie dough, biscuity malts) are well contained by efficient, tight, envelopping carbonation and an elegant bitterness. Not as good as some of the competition (and certainly no innovation), but for a brewery that struck me as a bit under the Belgian average, this is an unexpectedly pleasurable ale.
