A beer inspired by the founder’s daughter, making its debut at her first birthday party. Just like her, the beer is truly a one of a kind. A Golden Strong at its core with Grains of Paradise and an abundance of American hops used in the whirlpool and in the dryhop make this one unique. The result is a beer with a subtle sweetness and a lot of mischievous tones. Don’t be disarmed by her easy going nature, she packs quite a punch.

Draft at Monk’s Pub. Puffy Belgian head. Body is a quite cloudy gold. English IPA smell, rather low-key against its warm maltiness. First taste shows its creamy texture, like it might have come from nitro. Low level of carbonation. Hop bitterness is up front, but still not too strong. As I go further down, though, the hops pick up speed. Some yeast taste too, especially toward the finish.

islay (1124) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 1, 2014
16.9 oz. bottle. Hoppy, tart, interesting, unusual, but ultimately not very good and somewhat offputting aroma. Scents of honey, grilled vegetables, pickle brine, and candy sugar. Pours a hazy, dark buff or dull/dirty brass/bronze color. Small to moderate amount of beige head. Looks good in a murky way. Tart, dry, tangy, mineral-y, vegetal, herbal, slightly sour, spicy, and bitter flavor that matches the aroma. Flavors of lemon, rhubarb, orange, and grapefruit. Ultimately not very tasty and, like the aroma, a bit offputting. Medium body. Quite lively and frothy in the palate. Overall, I am not a fan. It’s something different, it’s weird, and it’s just not very good.

Poured with a giant long-lasting off-white head, plenty of Lace, and a clear honey color. lots going on with the aroma yeast hops wine malt Caramel fruit. Flavor is like aroma although the bitterness from the yeast and hops is a little overplayed and clashes somewhat also there is bitter sweetness and plenty of carbonic tang. Body is decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

notalush (4855) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Bottle I schlepped back with me from the Midwest - hazy orange pour, with a fluffy, well-sustained head - nose has a nice earthy must to it, along with a slight muskiness, which leads to tangy, citric hop nose, and an underlying dry, toasty, lightly nutty malt richness that reminds me very much of a Biere de Garde - soft carbonation and texture - malts are dry, but rich, toasty, nutty, lightly doughy - soft basement yeast character - hops arrive late, but pack a slight punch - fairly bitter, leading to quite a peppery finish, along with a slight, lingering mineral quality - really does remind me of a hoppy BdG - I like it, despite it being a little hot in the finish - interested about the saison I brought back, now.

MIBRomeo (2559) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Light copper color small dense white head. Sweet fruity aroma with a good amount of caramel again light which in think is a brewery trait. Flavor follows but adds an off putting bitter graham cracker note. Ok

madvike (2733) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 12, 2014
On tap - Hazy amber with a filmy ring of off white head. Light grapefruit with yeast, a little spicy fruity hops, and a light bread malt base. Taste is a little sharp, piney and bitter. Dry malt and yeast with a touch of astingency. Smooth and nicely carbonated.

brokensail (10935) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle @ RBSG 2014 Grand Tasting. Thanks, Frank. Bright orange pour with a white head. Quite a bit of sugar on the nose. A lot of pear, white pepper, and candied orange peel. Some mild booze and grass. Decent nose. Flavor is fairly sweet, but there is a good citrusy hop character. Mild grassy bitterness and mild spice. Kind of hot and very highly carbonated. Fairly peppery on the finish.

Costo Maybe? Although it doesn’t have the strength it has the big maltiness of a DIPA. The belgian spice and floral and fruitiness from the yeast is subtle. Solid. Serving: bottle

Frank (2871) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Belgian IPA is a style that I thought would be stupid when I first started running into them but has ultimately proven to be probably the best IPA variant other than perhaps session IPA. This one in particular is cloudy orange w/ a huge head and tons of lace. There are loads of citrus hops and dusty lavender yeast character here--really nice nose. It is slightly dry w/ an almost coriander-like character here. This is a really drinkable and tasty IPA of any sort.

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2014
Location: Draft at Blue Frog’s Local 22, 6/23/14

Aroma: The aroma has some clean hops, some fruitiness, and some metallic notes
Appearance: This one pours a cloudy orange color with a beige head and pretty good lacing
Flavor: This beer has a nice, solid flavor, it comes off as pretty clean and balanced
Palate: The mouthfeel is very soft and easy drinking, and it has a light dry finish to it
Overall Impression: This is the first thing I’ve tried from (and first time I have heard of for that matter) Une Annee. It may not be the most impressive beer, but it something that is worth trying. Solid stuff.
