3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle-pours a big white head, hazy gold color. Aroma is yeast, spice, hops, malt, sweet. Taste is fruit, spice, hops then finishes with a hops bitterness. The hops level is much less than I’d expect from an IPA but a nice beer.

I didn’t get the hops I was expecting from this when I read the label which said the brewer was trying to make an IPA. The color was a light yellow with a white head that had good lacing. The flavor was much sweeter than I expected. It did, however, have a bitter finish.

Tap at the Falling Rock. I am pretty new to Belgians, and this was at the end of a night of many samples, so not too much detail, but I loved this beer. Poured golden yellow. Very tasty, a little bit of belgian spice, basically like a well hopped triple. Hides it’s 9.5% very well. I will definitely seek this one out again.

Thanks for Blake I believe for the sample. Decent light hoppy aroma. Golden yellow color with a big foamy head, but had lots of particles of hops in it, turned me off. OK bitter hoppy flavor, but nothing special. Decent body, lively carbonation. Overall, it tastes OK, but the apperance kills it for me.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle. 10/2005 and 03/2006) Hmmm. Spicy aromas with some esthers (slight fruitiness) and banana. Thick, frothy, white head that lasted nicely. Hazy straw colored. Very bitter, particularly on the back end, but surprisingly fruity and malty up-front and, ultimately, pretty well-balanced Hot. Spritzy. Medium bodied (might use more, given how hot it really is).

This beer has a sweet aroma infused with hops, yeast, and citrus notes. It is a light golden color with a thick white head. This slightly dry but sweet beer has a flavor of hops, yeast, and mild lemon/citrus. It fades bitter with a nice finish of hops.
