A Belgian-Style IPA. The Bitter Woman journeyed to Belgium and returned with a certain je ne sais quoi. A spicy belgian yeast and specialty caramel malts add a whole new dimension of sophistication and style to our favorite Old Lass. Enjoy the Bitter Woman Belgian Style!

Sammy (11176) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 11, 2011
Bottle from Reilly’s in Madison. Looks closer to a Belgian, tastes closer to an IPA. A delight, a clear hop delivery, cushioned by yeast rather than malt secondary. Golden diffused by the off-white yast. Hoppy aroma. Very good drinkability. Tad above average mouthfeel, though carbonation was right there.

It was a pleasure to share this with Jazz88 on his most recent visit to MN. He liked the blend of Belgian and IPA, and I guess I fell in line in thinking this a fairly sophisticated beer that adds to the overall sense that they do some good things at Tyranena. Bottle.

RSRIZZO (1949) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 18, 2011
12oz bottle (courtesy of Headbanger) poured into a Trappist glass at 46°. Color is a hazy golden orange with light carbonation an a very thin off white head. Aroma of caramel, fruit and hops. The medium body has a smooth mouth feel with a light crisp bite at the end. Flavor comes in with toffee, a mild hop spice and a fruity Belgian yeast flavor, then a bold bitterness rolls in with a bit of citrus. In the after taste the citrus and spice seem to stand out then leave a dry bitterness hanging on. Overall this is a great brew, I live this style and this is one of the best I’ve had.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAY 6, 2011
Bottle served in my NB worthy glass: Amber hued with an initial nice frothy head and left good lacework upon the glassware, The aroma has notes of grassy and resiny hops, Belgian yeast, caraway, dill, earthy and minerally esters, hayfield, apricot and pears, caramel and pale biscuity malts. The taste is more sweet malt and yeast driven tones with the hop bitterness more a background player but still noticed. Moderate hop and yeast spiced and an overall rustic earthy character. That said, still seemed a tad unfocused at times. The mouth feel is lightly lush and spunky but sort of goes tepid towards the finish. An okay offering but honestly expected more (I guess more like the better highly hopped Belgian Ales out there)... not enough of the big, bold, and ballsy character I want from the BGW series.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - APR 7, 2011
12oz bottle. Rating #84. Copper pour with a little orange and an off white head. Hoppy with a distinct belgian yeast character and a slight metallic aroma. Hoppy and a bit old, a little sweet and an aftertaste that sticks around. (1589)

Bottle courtesy of Chef Keenan. Pours rust in color with a trim offwhite head.  Rose hips, salt, and dusty hops.  Meh.
