COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Medium sized white head with good retention and thin lace. Clear gold hued ale. Nose is yeasty, spicey, lightly floral and bready. Med/light body, prickly carbonation. Mildly sweet malts bouncing off of spicey, yeatstys and hops, some bubblegum notes, light melon notes. Lightly sweet finish, juicey. Yeah its a Belgian IPA,,, not a fan of the style yet,, meh. Bottle from motortoddhead, thanks bro!

Some Tyranena beers are hit. Some are miss. This is a definite hit. This hybrid style is one of my favorites, and this is very well done. Belgian accents with a an IPA base, it hits the mark. May be up there as one of my favorites from this brewer. Good purchase!

TheAlum (5205) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - JUL 9, 2010
12 oz bottle from the Binnys singles rack (Orland Park, IL). Pours a decent darker orangish amber, a light haze, loose beige head that dies to a small film, laces lightly. Aromas are florals and Belgian yeasty spice, estery pear meets light citrusy lemon, bread dough, Belgian yeast, dry yet sweet. Nice, with a bready pale malts beneath. Not overdone on the Belgian yeast, but there. Initial is lighter side of medium bodied, juicy pear and apple up front, banana moving into pretty dry and bitter middle of florals, grass, and then citrusy lemon. More straight bitterness of florals, chalk, and grass in there, a decent spiciness from the yeast, dry, bread and pale malts, dough, a touch of booziness, spicy pepper and yeast, a bit prickly. An ok beer, but the hop blend doesn’t work for me. I’d like more citrusy hops overall. A bit overdone. Not bad

A decent offering, well worth the money and i’d definitely get it again. Just didn’t knock my socks off. I love the style, but this one just had little hop character.

Pours a mostly clear yellow color with a small amount of head. Aroma is primarily made up of that typical Belgian yeast smell. Taste is similar but with some slight hoppy bitterness. Feels nicely carbonated and bubbly as you sip. Glad I tried it but probably would not seek out again.

nuplastikk (4127) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 3, 2010
12oz bottle. Hazy amber-tan with a foamy, lacy off-white head. Fresh, floral hop aroma. Lacks Belgian-style carbonation but the sweet, spicy yeast notes are impressive. Solidly hopped and quite enjoyable. Lots of underlying fruity yeast tones, and in your face citrus from the hops. Complex and drinkable, this is an awesome beer.

msante79 (2209) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - JUN 29, 2010
12oz bottle from Dobby’s. Pours clear copper with white head. Aromas of belgain yeast, citrus, and herbal hops. Flavors of belgain yeast, hops, sweet malt, and some citrus. Mouthfeel is a little thick. Does not strike me as a belgain style IPA. IT is not overly hoppy either. Decent beer none-the-less.

hombrepalo (1757) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 28, 2010
12 oz bottle. Nice summer beer. Poured a golden color with amber hues. Light fluffy head. Aroma of lots of carmel malts, crisp hops and clean wet moutfeel. Taste is similar. Overall an easy drinking medium body begain ale that is great on a hot summer day.

12oz bottle. Mostly clear rusty gold with a good sized off white head. Nice spice box nose with a hint of hops and Belgian yeast. Tasty and interesting.
