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.

Bottle poured mostly in the glass and the part that was propelled by the overcarbonation landed on my coffee table. Yeasty bread hoppiness.

Lukaduke (3160) - Gray, Maine, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Pours a glowing orange medium golden color with a finger of white foam. Nose is a nice mix of citrus pith, orange zest some sweet malt and a touch of grass. Palate follows with some interesting belgain yeast qualities appearing in the citrus, grassy hop forward mix. Nice round malt, doughy backbone. Bright orange peel, floral honey, fresh grass. Nice bitterness helps clean the finish up nicely.

Nice beer with old hoppy aroma present but at taste is very nice with malty and floral hoppy flavour.

hotstuff (5077) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 6, 2014
Rated on 3-14-2010 (Bottle) This beer pours a large smooth white head with a short retention, cloudy straw body, fizzy carbonation, one ring of lacing, and floaties. The aroma is caramel malt, yeast, citrus, pine hops, and a hint of spice. The taste is light spice, caramel malt and citrus hops The palate is fairly smooth and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer is not overly hoppy tasting and worth trying.

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

Big white head. Aroma has floral hoppy notes but very powerful. Nice carbonation. Not an IPA but a belgian style...hopped beer.

A delicious Belgian beer. Aroma was great. Strong Belgian yeast, bubble gum, and sweet malt. Lovely. Pour was a beautiful medium gold with lots of sediment floating around and a one finger off white head. Taste was classic Belgian. Strong candi sugar, Belgian yeast and brown sugar. Delicious beer. Sweet, but not cloying. Nice carbonation. Best Belgian beer Ive had in a while.
