Christos (5431) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - DEC 9, 2015
(Dunham / Kissmeyer Leo’s Early Breakfast IPA) Bottle 341 ml at home, served into a big tulip, ABV 6.2% Deep orange colour on the body, a bit hazy, with good activity in the glass. Two full fingers of thick, white head sitting on top, with very good retention. Aroma has floral notes mainly, then some citrus and pine. Taste is more complex, tea, floral notes, I don’t get much of the guava, well, some tropical fruits on the finish are indeed present, light citrus, quite bitter all in all with long duration. Medium body, good carbonation, very dry palate. Quite good.

Benzai (15092) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 5, 2015
Bottle @ home. Clear orange-golden color, medium sized white head. Aroma is malts and superb fruit hops. Taste malts, fruit hops, bitter hops. Perfect balance between fruit and bitter hops. Medium to full body, medium to firm carbonation. Really good IPA.

Yorker (1954) - Herning, DENMARK - DEC 4, 2015
35 cl bottle @ home. Pours cloudy golden with a little sediment and a white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma and flavour are flowers, citrus, and herbs - with a dry finish.

yourilevesque (1733) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 1, 2015
Une jolie bière m’est servie dans un verre droit. Le liquide est trouble et la tête mince. De magnifiques arômes florales de tisane et de houblons caressent délicatement mes narines envoûtées. Un champ de camomille sous le soleil du mois de mai. En bouche le thé n’arrive que tardivement. Ce sont d’abord les houblons qui attaquent d’une touche très florale et herbacée. Sans que rien ne s’estompe, tout en douceur, une rondeur de malts s’installe doucement puis vient une amertume de poche de thé longuement infusée et refroidie. Malgré qu’il s’agisse d’une bière bien particulière, je reconnais très clairement la Signature de la Maison.

tricksta_p (4213) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - NOV 21, 2015
Bottle at home. Aroma of tropical fruits, grass, grapefruit, earl grey, tea leaves, some guava notes, fresh hops. Flavour is rather bitter with a dry finish. Body is medium. I generally LOVE Earl Grey in my beer and this one just flatout rocks. Delicious beer.

Idiosynkrasie (7208) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 26, 2015
341ml bottle. Murky, orangey, deep golden colour, some tiny particles floating around, huge, firm, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Piney and herbal hoppy aroma with perfumed touch, notes of tea, cautious, concentrated hints of tropical fruit and glue. Taste is herbal and bitter hoppy, some tropical fruit with a touch of glue, flashes of Earl Grey. Slightly weird mixture.

UXO (1803) - CANADA - SEP 23, 2015
Appearance: muddy opaque deep gold with a short ivory head head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: black tea, bergamot, tropical fruit, citrus, light caramel, earthy. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderately strong bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium body, moderate-low carbonation, medium duration bitter finish. (4/5) The appearance is a bit misleading on this: during most of the pour, it was looking like a bright and clear deep gold / pale amber, but the last half-inch turned out to be chock full of particulate and what looks to be tea. I could’ve poured it a lot cleaner, but didn’t. (One might therefore argue it actually deserves a 4/5 instead a 3/5 for appearance, but that wouldn’t change the overall score.) Very nice other than that, with the name certainly giving you a hint of what’s to come: lots of black tea and tropical fruit (guava puree), playing well with the Nelson Sauvin hop (which I particularly like). The tea bitterness also works well with the hop bittering, making this taste more bitter than the 50IBU would suggest. It’s pretty rare for me to have beer with breakfast, but I could be convinced to have on of these! (16/20)
