oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 27, 2011
Pours a hazy golden yellow color. Aromas of grainy malts, yeast, and a touch of hops. Flavor was kind of lemony and herbal with some sweetness.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7634) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 13, 2011
Sampled from an 11.2 oz brown bottle this beer poured a heavily overcarbonated murky yellow-gold color with an enormous foamy orange-white head that lingered forever and left good lacing. The aroma was tangy with faint fruity hops, pepper, must, peach and dust. The flavor was dry, bitter and lightly perfumey with undertones of cracker, peach, pear and bread. The finish was short fruit and bread. Fairly full bodied despite the overcarbonation. Decent.

Prokroustis (745) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - AUG 10, 2011
Amber cloudy body with particles and a white head. Floral hoppy aroma with yeast and lemon. Harsh palate, bittersweet flavour with a spicy and dry finish.

DrnkMcDermott (3075) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - JUL 28, 2011
33 cl Belgian bottle, $2.50 @ Binnys Bolingbrook. A little cap of foam pops up after the cap comes off. Poured straight down, I have a lot of foam, while a pale ale forms below with many chunks of chaff, yeast sediment, whatever. Smell does want to be a pale ale: I gets the sweet malts, but not much in hops. I will say, though, I like the taste. It has some strong malt, maybe a touch too sweet. Those strong American hops theyre claiming are just not there. Maybe this is an older bottle, and what do I expect for shopping off the closeout rack? Slight sour finish, but it does end up as a decent Belgian ale, with bitter hop notes finally checking in.

Rune (12357) - Troms, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2011
330ml bottle, as IPA Extra, at Bier Central. Light golden body, unclear. White rocky head, almost gushing. Floral-fruity nose. Fresh fruity flavour with emphasis on oranges, yeasty notes beneath. Dry hoppy finish. Very nice with smooth drinkability (Antwerpen, 29.04.2011).

Kristall-Knig (2820) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - MAY 18, 2011
Festival der Bierkulturen 15.05.2010 Eher bedeckt hopfiger Geruch, dem eine zurckhaltende Zitrusnote innewohnt. Antrunk dann sehr aromatisch, bergleitend in eine trockenherbe orangige Mitte mit deutlicher Bitterkeit. Im Abgang nochmal verstrkt bitterer. Gefllt.

77ships (9398) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 30, 2011
[email protected]: bottle calls it an IPA and is probably closer to an IPA than a Belgian Ale, my bottle was slowly but continually gushing, resulting in more head than beer and the head made it look like they put dishwashing liquid in there, foaming like crazy, I am pretty sure that the whole thing was unique to my bottle because that cannot be normal, right? beer itself was hazy, bright golden, smells sweet hops with some flowers and fruit in there, dry finish, full, clean, sharp bitter taste with some sweetness underneat, flowers, fruit (pear & lemon), agressive carbonation, lots of yeast

rodenbach99 (4558) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - APR 26, 2011
Bouteille de 330ml, partage avec Le Slovak. Au dpart ce qui surprend de cette bire est la mousse rocailleuse qui perdure jusqu la fin du verre. Le liquide est tant qu lui est dor. Le nez est surprenant ne ralliant pas les autres commentaires. Lammoniaque est au rendez-vous avec les brettomyces, jai bien dit les levures sauvages de la famille des bretts. En bouche il ny a rien de distinctif face au nez, les bretts sont prsents. On cherche les fameux houblons de cette IPA revisit. Lot 313. La note mdiane a t donn.

(Bouteille de 33 cl, lot 313) Le liquide a une robe dore. La tte mousseuse est un sommet de neiges ternelles. Une large dentelle ceinture le verre. Le nez de cette IPA est passablement touch par des herbes amres et des fleurs lgrement sucres. La prsence de la levure me semble bien dbordante, allant mme jusqu prsenter des caractristiques habituellement rattaches aux brettanomyces. tonnant sans tre dplaisant. Au got, la levure sauvage refait surface avec des saveurs de basse-cour. Les houblons russissent aussi saffirmer et la combinaison Amarillo et Chinook se traduit par des saveurs pices et herbaces au caractre bien amrisant. En bouche, le liquide a un corps moyen faible avec une effervescence trs active et une texture pratiquement fouette. La finale se fait sur des notes bien mordantes de houblons dans lesquelles apparaissent quelques petites pointes sauvageonnes. En rsum, ce liquide qui fourmille de microbes semble avoir t autre chose dans le verre des prcdents ratebeerians. Dans cette optique, une autre bouteille simpose et au plus vite. Pour tout don, les tlphonistes prendront vos appels au 1-888-404-4040. Un reu dimpt sera mis pour toute offrande dpassant les 24 bouteilles. Merci!
