BeerandBlues2 (9379) - 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 (635) - 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 (6119) - 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.

probstblueribbon (2857) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 2, 2011
33 cl bottle from Bieropholie, served cool in a tulip glass. 28DE10.

App.: Cloudy deep orange-amber with a large, light tan-orange foam. Aroma: Beautiful, bright, American hopping, lots of grapefruit, pine, resin, floral notes, so green and juicy!, berries and apricot/peach fruitiness, caramel and toasted sugar, brown sugar, APA or American IPA?, yeast notes, a little dusty and brothy, lovely. Palate: Medium body, lively effervescence. Flav.: Peaches, apricots, strawberries, grapefruit, pine/resin, caramel, dust, totally an APA or AIPA, really fruity and bitter and nice; off-dry with nice bitterness and a fruity, burnt sugar finish.

Was expecting a Belgian Ale or BSA...hence comments about IPA and APA. Apparently an IIPA...absolutely. And a fine example.

konstifik (573) - SWEDEN - DEC 28, 2010
Pours a slightly hazy orange with a nice rocky head. A rather well-balanced beer with a flowery and citrusy hoppiness and buttercookieish malts. Plays on a good balance rather than the overdose of hops.

opperbacco (14) - USA - DEC 21, 2010
Ottima schiuma, color arancio torbido. Naso piacevole di luppolo, ma di bassa intensità. Il caramello mi sembra eccessivo (fuori luogo per una triple a cui si ispira il corpo a detta del birrificio). L’amaro c’è ed è persistente ma resta anche dopo il contrasto con il caramello (tipo paradox ipa) che la rende poco beverina.

Ratman197 (9454) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - DEC 19, 2010
Bottle poured a hazy orange amber with a lasting ivory head and good lacing. Armas of biscuit, earthines, orange zest and a hint of pine. Palate was medium bodied ands smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of biscuit and light citrus with a smooth dry moderatly bitter finish.

Pinball (10686) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 18, 2010
33cl bottle almost clear orange, large smooth offwhite to yellow head. flowery hoppy, citrussy hoppy, mild malty base. Nice hoppy aroma overall, but still something seems to be missing. some more malts perhaps. flavor is exotc fruity sweet, also a little yellow fruity sweetness (orange) and bitter hoppy notes. Nice double ipa, but the slightly sweeter exotic fruity parts of the flavor makes it not that quenching, too bittersweeet.

thegreenrooster (3157) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 17, 2010
Pour is a bright copper with a huge white head. Aroma is a nice floral hop with some Belgain spicyness. Flavor is mild hops, lots of ripe melon and finishes with a decent sweetness. Nothing stellar as the hops are kinda weak all around but still pretty solid.
