Sweet jesus, i’m in hop heaven. So freaken smooth. I think the alcy content does take away from the bitterness that i crave. Still, i solid Belgian ale!

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2009 2009-02-24, bottle at Akkurat, Stockholm, 8-5-8-5-16=40
Hazy blond color; big creamy head. Spicy aroma, like a Tripel. Good body strength, malt flavor, dry, spicy, with much more bitterness than a Tripel, some Belgian yeast and light alcohol feeling. Very good.

2006-09-01, draught at Den Tatoverede Enke, Copenhagen, 7-5-8-5-16=41
Hazy golden color; thick head. Strange aroma, vanilla, soft spices, sweet wood, toffee. Malty flavor, good structure, some sweetness, bold hopping, but well blended with the rest; toffee. Bold ending bitterness. Original and interesting.

Bottle at De Bierkamer, Kluizen. Golden-amber colour with a beautifully rocky, long-lasting and lacing white head. Prominent spicy Saaz hops aroma. Flavours start sweet but gradually develops towards a dry finish. Great fruity and spicy hoppiness. Good carbonation, full body. The best of the Urthel range?

Light and hazy gold with a frothy, snow white head. Aromas of banana and citrus fruit with a spicy, yeasty character. Dry finish, but not as hoppy as I expected. A very good Belgian Pale Ale.

Hazy deep amber. Creamy white head. Dominant aromas were yeast and hops. Somewhat sweet and malty. Nutty and fruity. Doesn’t stink.

Bottle: massive white head on top of a golden ale. Fruity, spicey and hop tones dominate the taste. Dry and clean aftertaste is quite nice.

vyvvy (5009) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 30, 2006
Pours clear and golden with a nice sized frothy white head. The aroma has a good amount of floral hops mixed with the Belgium style earthiness and some light sweetness. Medium / full bodied with a big amount of gentle carbonation. Starts with some Belgium earthiness and floral / citrus hops. The finish has more citrus hops coming into the picture along with some woody hops. This is a nice beer, but I prefer the Chouffe venture of blending the style a lot more.

750. How can anyone not like this stuff? Pours rich hazy gold with a towering white head that holds its shape even as it falls. Big hop nose of grass, leaves, and candi sugar. Smells pilsner-esque when the cork first comes out, gets much more complex when you get closer. Absolutely buying everything the brewer’s selling with this one: fruit, hops, spice, and sweetness structure every stage of the flavor. Crisp bittersweet finish. Wonderful stuff.

The pour reveals a cloudy yellow color with a medium bubbly white head. Good aroma and flavor of citrusy hops and yeast with a dry and bitter finish, it also has a spicy thing going on. The body has a medium thickness with a dry mouthfeel and lively carbonation. This is good stuff, I like Urthel products so far, especially the tripel.
