77ships (11051) - 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

DocLock (11048) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 22, 2008
Bottle from State Line. This one gushed greatly, and presented a hazy gold pour with massive amount of white head that retained itself well. The nose was hoppy, floral, with candi sugary malt in the nose. Flavor was malty, floral, hoppy, spicy, yeasty. A definite belgian style IPA with more of the emphasis on the rock sugar, dry florals, and funky notes and not as much emphasis on the pure hop bomb levels. Very nice.

Fin (10917) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2008
ZBF 2008 on the Saturday Poured a hazy lemon colour with white head, and started off with a good rush of hops and bitterness. The bitterness sort of hung around like an uninvited mother-in-law, which is a strange thing for me to say because if Loz and I were married my mother-in-law would always be most welcome, it’s just typical of my notes sometimes and bizarely I meant for the bitterness thing in a positive way, I like that about it. There was a very good tang to this beer, another flurry of sweetness, finishing with some soft slightly restrained hops, very nice.

leaparsons (10765) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2009
Bottle. Hazy gold with large white foam. Very lively out of the bottle. Aromas are floral, hoppy and woody with lots of yeast. Some pine. Flavours are bitter grapefruit and pine with herbal notes. Quite woody and yeasty. Spicy on the finish. Good.

3.3
marcus (10682) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 17, 2009
This orange beer poured with almost no head and a fruit aroma. The flavor is caramel malt and citrus. This is a well-made beer that is quite refreshing.

3.3
KimJohansen (10497) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - APR 7, 2008
Clear golden with with huge bubbly head. Weak aroma with hoppy and fruity notes. Sweet hoppy flavor with light grapefruit notes. Ends bitter.

3.4
Maria (10211) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 11, 2009
It is hazy, warm golden with sediment and a huge, creamy head. The aroma has notes of yeast, citrus, malt and fruit. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of yeast, citrus, malt, light spice and the finish is hoppy and slightly bitter. It is an OK Belgian IPA, even if I prefer an IPA without the Belgian yeast.

3.4
MoritzF (10095) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - MAR 8, 2009
(33cl bottle) Hazy, golden colour with a huge blonde foamy head. Yeasty and slightly sweet malty aroma with lemon-fruity and herbal, slightly flowery hoppy notes. Moderately bitter flavour, medium bodied, slightly fizzy carbonation. Malty base with fruity and slightly vinous side effects, combined with a present herbal and slightly floral hop character; almost dry malty, subtle fruity and herbal hoppy finish with a rather harsh bitterness in the aftertaste. Lacks balance but is still pretty likeable and hops orientated, at least by Belgian standards (08.III.09).

3.7
JorisPPattyn (10072) - BELGIUM - MAR 1, 2008
Good, persistent yellowish, fine head; over hazy orange beer, with an olive shine. Mustard seed, greenery, fresh malt, some hops. Extremely good forward C-hoppy taste, backed with just the right amount of cakey malts. Very dry finish, if some fusels. Medium bodied, slick, near chewy. AH! This is one Alvinne’s best tries. Probably the most straightforward Belgian IPA.
