On tap at Maxís in Baltimore. Light yellow pour with no head. Aroma is floral honey pollen. Some hops. Flavor is like a blissful kick in the teeth. Honey sweet hop bitter pollen floral. Really nice. Great beer. 77ships (9650) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 30, 2011

: 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
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2008 Bottle sampled at the brewery. Cloudy golden pour with a thick, rocky white head. Superb aroma of yeast and fresh fruity hops. Superb flavor of fruity american hops with spices and yeast, itís very dry and sharp. The body is medium with a creamy texture and moderate carbonation. The previous Extra was good, but this restyled version is simply amazing. oberabcbbsok (692) - Hoboken, BELGIUM - APR 24, 2008
After tasting the Extra. This beer (tasted on bottle only for the moment) is indeed Restyled. Very nice and a good bitterness

Spicy noble hops in large quantity make this a powerfully aromatic Belgian ale.

Delicious cloudy golden hue looks like a lemon pie. Very, very aromatic for a beer that uses no fruits. Never too bitter despite the high IBUs, this remains elegant enough an aroma focused. Wheat background enhances drinkability.
Timid white head. Perhaps a bit too green in the aroma, but a lot happens at once and you can easily lose your focus in there.
Fine yellow in colour with perfect lasting white head. Nose is crisp and hoppy with some hints of fresh flowers and some citrus. It also has a interesting Pilsen caracter and a dry malty taste. the 7% gives a nice rounding in the mouthfeel and the afthertaste is crisp to medium dry. A great and highly drinkable Belgian Styled hoppy beer. hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2009
Hazy gold with a huge white head. Musty honeycomb aroma with hints of marzipan and wet dishcloth. Taste is sweet, overripe pineapple, clove and banana, suddenly replaced by a mouth shattering burst of hoppiness. Exciting beer. lefossoyeur (613) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 8, 2009
Hazy blonde pale ale with a huge thick creamy head. Nose of citrus, fresh bread and noble spicy hops. The heavy carbonation hits your palate with an uppercut and lead to a very full bodied pale ale with a very slight acidic aftertaste that procure some freshness to this one. Itís not so bitter as you would expect with the term ęIPAĽ. But this is not west coast, itís southwest belgium ! And it is very well made indeed. Refreshing and very tasty.

This is better described as a Belgian IPA. Itís very hoppy and fruity, mostly grapefruit thanks to the delicious Amarillo hops. Good beer.
