beerisgoodforu (992) - Nrresundby, DENMARK - APR 8, 2011
Bottle @ Cask Pub and Kitchen in London. Pours an amber color with a frothy white head. Aroma is quite hoppy, with alot of grapefruit, brett, pine and some resinous notes. The flavor is quite hoppy with grapefruit and pine, along the brett and some breadiness. The body is medium with a fairly dry mouthfeel. Overall a pretty nice Belgian Strong Ale, with IPA notes because of the intense hoppy flavors.

BartC (727) - Lichtaart, BELGIUM - APR 3, 2011
Amber colored clear beer with a creamy off white head. Fizzy carbonation. Nice citrus taste, bitter and citrus / grapefruit more at the end. An Orval-lookalike but with US hopps: for sure a nice experiment.

Fred82 (2221) - Qubec City, Quebec, CANADA - APR 1, 2011
750ml bottle thanks to savvy1984 (if memory serves).
Appearance : Amber with a small head.
Aroma : Light citrusy hops with light brett. Nice resinous profile.
Taste : Resinous hops, a bit floral with light brett. Finish quite resinous and dry.
Overall : I know this is not very fresh anymore. I wasnt aware that this was a hoppy beer so I didnt cared to open it sooner. Enjoyable brett flavours. Nice resinous nose. Interesting but past its prime.

On tap @ Patricks. Slightly hazy amber body with a big off-white head. Fine and refreshing citric fruity aroma with just a hint of brett. Flavor is refreshing citric fruity, grapefruit, bitter and slightly funky. Medium body and moderate bitter finish. Funny to compare with regular Its Alive, seems like the American hops is hiding almost all the funkyness away. Still a nice beer, but a bit straight forward.

sebletitje (9706) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 17, 2011
draft @ Delirium, Bruxelles. Ambre, col pais blanc. Arme est lgrement houblonn, note de fort de pin. En bouche, une bire qui rappelle les aiguilles de pin avec qcq pices, houblon citronn. Palais offre une touche de th vert, feuille de tabac avec un fini sec et amer. Le tout garde une fine prsence de malt cara avec un fini qui est citrique et dans la ligne des houblons utiliss. Je ny ai pas vraiment not de brett et on a l encore une des nombreuses bires de Mikkeller qui mlange les styles pour finalement arriver toujours a peu prs la mme chose. Une bire dinspiration belge tirant un peu vers un profile amricain. Bonne mais sans plus.

grapengrain (124) - Havelock North, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 23, 2011
Big, rich, volopuous hoppy strong ale. Lovely spicy citrus American hop charicters interplay between rich malt notes and dirty, sweaty, horse-blanket bret notes.
