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 (5117) - 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.

biggcb (464) - Harleysville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 3, 2006
Bottle. Pours a golden color with an enormous head. Thick to the point it is almost solid. Aroma is very hoppy with a bit of yeastiness. Flavor is mostly about the hops, with a little yeast and some spices. No notice of the 9.5%abv.

Ungstrup (30009) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 26, 2006
A hazy orange beer with a head like whipped cream in an off-white shade. The flavor is very sweet - like a typical Belgian Triple - with notes of yeast - a bit too sweet for my liking. The flavor is very sweet and malty combined with a powerful, but somewhat dusty hops note, that resides for a spicyness with notes of cloves combined with yeast. The end is dry and yeasty.

iowaherkeye (2698) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - JUN 23, 2006
25.4oz bottle (I think itís 750mL), no date. Pours a hazy light straw golden with a large fluffy white head. Aroma of yeast, fruits, pepper, spices, grass. Musty taste, quite bitter throughout, alcohol burn noticeable. Still fruity and yeasty, kind of a grassy biscuity bitter finish. Full bodied, very carbonated.
