Superior Hoppy Belgian Ale. White very rich foam, small bubbles. Very hoppy, spicy, fruity flavour and full, heart warming body. Brewed at first at Van Steenberge, now brewed at Koningshoeven - La Trappe brewery.

Extremely spicy aroma exploding with estery yeast, very dry and surprisingly little hoppiness considering the labelís boasts. The hops come through more in palate feel than flavor: crisply bitter and backed with more than modest amounts of dry yeastiness - the two donít actually pair quite as well as they could. That being said, there is tons of flavor here, perhaps too much for some, but itíll keep you on your toes.

3fourths (8342) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 23, 2006
Bottle. Hop nose is composed of some sticky malt liquor-esque sweetness, some sweet yeast and candy sugar in the nose. Slightly spicy. Creamy hop resin flavor, crispy and light on the palate. Interesting mix, I don’t know if it plays out as well as it could.

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2006
Draught. Yellow colour with a big thick white head. Fruity, flowery, hoppy aroma and a sweet fruity, dry hoppy taste. Medium to full body with a dry hoppy finish.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 17, 2006
Aroma of earthy malt, spices, subdued. Pours a golden yellow, carbonated, white head. Fairly light in the hop area. If you call your beer "Hop-it" in my mind youíd better back it up. Dry finish, pepper as well

BrewDad (5085) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JUL 16, 2006
[Portland International Beer Festival Ė Tap] A copper colored brew with Northwest flair for Hops. The hops where present butt his still was a Belgian ale. Liked the flavors and the spices where also very good. Has a good fruit flavor with a great finish to the beer. I would drink another. Good high alcohol content 9.5%

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - JUL 14, 2006
Hazy golden body, fairly large head, good lacing. Aroma was fairly hoppy with notes of fruity and spicy hops, pepper, yeast, sugar. Flavor is the same, light alcohol in the finish. Quite bitter for a Belgian ale obviously. Enjoyable, interesting, but not great.

jzzbassman (1523) - New Albany, Mississippi, USA - JUL 12, 2006
Light yellow with a huge head that subsded to rocky peaks. Flowery aroma that smelled great. Flavor was spicy, a littly light, not as bitter as I expected, with a bit of a perfumed finish. I might be more impressed if I hadnít already had De Ranke XXX Bitter, but this is a nice beer.

lgklotet (432) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2006
Bottle, 330 ml. Huge head. Aroma is yeasty, hoppy.. I didnít find this one to be so hoppy as itís made out to be, yeast dominated, sweet to the point of sticky. Reminds me alot of another famous Belgian Strong Ale.
