I rate this regardless of style. It is a very nice belgian ale, but there is very little hops. I get more coriander both nose and taste. It has somewhat of a bitter finish however. Very nice, buttery palate, I really enjoyed this beer marcus (10222) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Pours orange amber with a rich beige head and a citrus aroma. There is a medium-bodied caramel malt flavor with a magnificent hop profile and a dry nicely bitter finish. Fatehunter (2567) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - APR 29, 2013
Thin head on a hazy, medium straw colored body.
The aroma is a nice mix of sharp citrus and cotton candy.
The taste has a biting lemon bitterness, then sweetened up with mandarin and finishes with a pine bitterness. A great profile.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
An enjoyable IPA, good twist and balance. DeliriumT (537) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 26, 2013
Pours a rosey copper with minimal head. Aroma is sweet with an upfront hoppy punch. Flavour is a little mismatched. The trademark of the Belgian style is the yeast flavour paired with the sweetness and full mouthfeel. The trademark yeast flavour is completely eradicated by hops, which don't gel with the sweet wort anywhere near as well at fruity, spicy, yeasty flavours

Middling IPA. Not as great as I was expecting. On tap at Original Gravity in San Jose. rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 13, 2013
650 ml bottle. Bottled 05/2011. From coldbrewky. Thanks Steve!Vells (1846) - Rīga, LATVIA - APR 13, 2013
Dark hazy amber colour with a big fluffy off-white head.
Hops in the aroma. Dark resin, sweet candies, malt and fruits in the aroma. The flavour is bitter hoppy with pine, mild resin and mint. Some caramel malt there too. There might be some yeast too. Some alcohol pops up when this gets warmer. Not very pleasant but it’s not that fresh any more. I should’ve been enjoying this earlier...
Hazy amber with medium off white head. Lacing.
Aroma.. moderate hops, fruity (citrus, peach) and yeasty. Quite malty. Bit spicy
Moderate sweet with moderate bitterness. Nicely balanced.
Very refreshing. Liked this one.

Bottle. Dark tan pour, medium 1/4 inch frothy carbonation and an aroma of banana’s and malty hops. Flavor is rich earthy malt, bitter orange marmalade, a little more of the banana esters from the yeast and finished bready and a little hoppy. Decent, but a bit overpriced for me to buy regularly. 3fourths (9345) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 7, 2013
bottle. hazy burnt orange body with a fine-bubbled, long-lasting biege head. American hops and strong yeast esters present an aroma of pine resin, citrus juice and pith, bubble gum, cotton candy, maraschino cherry / fruit cocktail and tutti-frutti. the smell of granulated sugar or simple syrup comes to mind. heavy American hop bitterness, hugely resinous and astringent. thick, goopy body; moderate tartness from the Belgian yeast strain. distinct sweet bell pepper flavor shows up on the approach before a high acid and carbonation washing of the tongue with bitter fruit peel and pine resin and caramel malt sugars. too sweet for me.
