Bottle. First off, I think the cork dented my ceiling and I have a pain in my neck from jumping so quickly to get out of the way. Strangely enough, no beer came out of the bottle. Clear copper color with a billowy ivory head. Very Belgian-like yeast aroma with a solid hoppiness. Taste is bananas and oranges with malt and lemongrass. Warming with a slight burnt cinnamon note. Very dry.

This was a pleasant suprise. Poured this from bottle and saw the entire glass fill with foam. Huge white bubbly head. Once I finished the beer, I had foam residue still foating in the cup. This head wouldn’t go away! Aroma was of slight floral hops and malt. Flavor was of drysweet hops and had a crisp slight aftertaste of malt. I drank this ice cold with habanero chicken wings. They meshed very well. I would drink this again.

This was a good Belgian. Very hoppy and dry, which I like. Pours a cloudy yellow with a thick white head, the flavor was nice and balanced. Recommended.

A clear gold color, with a yeastless pour, and a large white substantial head. A saaz hop aroma with a spicy, yeast taste. Gets somewhat old tasting through the bottle.

Big bottle: lots of small bubbling, sweet hoppy aroma, strong white head that never settles. Little fruity...hardly noticable. Finishes bitter but refreshing. A clean belgian ale. Lots of debris.

On tap at Brickskeller in DC. Tasted in Conjunction with La Brooklynette (Gnomette part ii), which was a perfect combination. This one was more estery and a little more sweet and has a higher carbonation level, but had a very similar flavor profile. A mix of american and noble hops in the flavor, perhaps?, Yeasty fruity esters from the belgian yeast strain. Spicier hop flavors than other Belgian hoppy beers that I have tasted - Delicious.

11.2 oz bottle. Hazy golden color with full foam white head. Sweet malt and citrus aroma and taste with a hoppy bitter after taste. As the label says Hoppy Belgian Ale

The bottle says this is an India Pale Ale inspired by American Pale Alse. It certainly is a pale ale which unfortunately is not my favorite beer. I enjoy it but I like others better. This particular beer is. a fruity spicy beer with a lot of hoppy flavor. Bright and tingly on the tongue. Certainly it has a distinct taste but not enough so to merit the higher price

Bottle served too cold. Trappist. Big bannana yeast, citrus notes, very sweet the hops a not very noticible in the aroma but then again served too cold. A nice cloudy golden color with a great white heat of good standing. Good taste, fairly hoppy, incredible hoppy for a belgian, the hops taste very continental, my guess is lots of saaz, and styrian and hellertau. Good sweet malty, and bready character. Quite floral in taste. Palate is nice fairly substantial mouthfeel and good tight carbonation. Pretty tasty, and a suprising twist on a belgian strong. Nice brew.
