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!

Moggman (235) - Columbus, USA - NOV 24, 2010
Sample shared by JaBier. Sweet aroma with some belgian notes (spicy, slight banana). Flavor is on the sweet side with notes of caramel and medium bitterness. Some nice yeast characteristics as well.

queenholly (2612) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - MAR 13, 2014
Bottle. Slightly vinous, bready/yeasty, brown sugar malt aroma. Hazy amber with a small beige head. Fruity caramel malt, yeasty, spicy, weedy hops flavor. Medium body, soft carbonation. Overall the flavor was a bit medicinal, and I didn’t find it all that pleasant.

Patrickctenchi (3093) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - NOV 6, 2013
Bottle: Pours cloudy amber with a short, off-white head. Bready, toasty caramel aroma. Taste is yeasty, bready, earthy bitter. Imperial IPA bitterness, but not so boozy as some... Comes across a little musty. Good, but not great.

valpoaj (613) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Medium apricot pour - thin white head that leaves quickly. Aroma is bold/vibrant and very interesting - spicy, bready, hint of fruity hops, sweet malts, caramel - seriously digging this nose! Flavor isn’t ’as’ good, but its pretty decent - booze, bittering hops, syrupy malt, yeast. Palate is somewhat highly carbonated, hint of an alcohol burn, lasting bitterness. This was a very unique brew, and one I’m quite glad to have enjoyed - nice work!

Nephilium (1259) - Ohio, USA - MAR 7, 2012
Nice aroma of hops and spice. Pours a cloudy orange-amber with a thin white head. This comes across more on the Belgian side then the IPA style, strong yeast esters with a little hop presence in the finish. There’s a touch of sweetness that lingers throughout, as well as a whisper of alcohol burn. There’s a lingering floral note in the finish from the hops. Overall this is good, and something worth trying.

KickInChalice (860) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 27, 2012
From notes. First reviewed 7/20/2010. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tulip. Out of the bottle, it pours an amber color with cherry edges. A fluffy white head forms upon pouring, with decent retention and some soft lacing down the side of the glass. A bit darker and little bit less cloudy than other Belgian IPA’s. There is a very strong bubble gum aroma, with some soft caramel sweetness as well. Earthy and soft citrus hops. The bubble gum flavor carries through quite strongly. Sweet, caramel bready malt up front, with some spiciness and herbal hop flavors. Finishes smooth. Somewhat light, with medium carbonation. Medium body. Overall I thought this was tasty but a little bit simple.

brokensail (9935) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 14, 2012
Pours a hazy golden orange color with an off-white head. Still surprisingly hoppy for the age of this beer. Lots of fruity and floral notes along with quite a bit of yeast and some nice esters. Sweet bread and malt flavor are more pronounced on the palate. The citrus and fruit character translates to the flavor as well. A hint of grass and only a mild bitterness with some yeastiness toward the back end.

Drake (7945) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - DEC 20, 2011
12 ounce bottle from Crown Liquors #19 in Carmel. Pours a clear amber color with a large frothy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of earthy hops and biscuit malts. The taste is sweet malts, sweet tea, bitter earthy hops and toasted malts. Medium bodied.

Sammy (8094) - 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.

Bottle. Sour lemon and barley malt aroma. Hazy amber color with small head. Slightly sweet-sour lemon and musty malt flavor. Bitter herbal hops finish.
