nearbeer (5422) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 15, 2014
650 ml. 2013 vintage. Hazy burnt orange with a huge, rocky foam. Nose of funky toffee, earthy grape must and a touch of vinegar. Taste is toffee with a bit of toasted walnut and tart lemon juice. Finish has some grassy, wooden hop. Near-medium body is balanced with a light astringency and a medium-high carbonation.

Nice Belgian ale flavor. Not much hop flavor for an IPA (even for a Belgian one.) Nice spicy finish.

22 ounce bottle. Pours orange in color. Malty ale with some fruity esters. Not a strong yeast finish or taste.

Chudwick (3210) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - MAR 27, 2014
bomber (2013 vintage) - we’ll see how the IPA portion holds up. Poured into the one and only St. Bernardus Watou slightly crooked Trappist glass. Nose is fruity esters and old hay. Sip adds black pepper, and just like Unibroue beers, I am having a hard time describing the flavors. I like the flavors and funky (from the label) is close. A tad sweet and somewhat bitter. Makes for a unique apéritif, but I’m not having any of the suggestions from the label. Before I add the rating, didn’t pick up on the IPA. Would be interested in trying a fresher batch.

patrick767 (4063) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 24, 2014
bottle - Pours amber with an aroma of citrus and Belgian yeast. It’s a good, flavorful brew with citrus and spice character, assertive hops, and a medium body. It seems to hit what it’s trying to do pretty well though it’s not outstanding.

thorongil2 (3076) - , Ontario, CANADA - MAR 19, 2014
(tap) clear amber brown colour with a small brown head; aromas of citrus, wood; austere, mineral flavour with long light bitter finish

3.5
jkwalking05 (4740) - Arlington, Texas, USA - FEB 2, 2014
22 oz bottle. Amber in color with a decent sized off-white head. Aroma is of heavy perfume, spices, light citrus, grass, and grain. Taste is of grain, straw, grass, coriander and bitter florals.

3.4
travita (5006) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Bottle. The look is copper in color, white colored head, and a slight haze. The smell is spice, earth, fruit, yeast, and berries. The taste is tang, fruit, yeast, and funk.

3.6
BeerdedDave (1707) - Beckley, USA - JAN 11, 2014
May have been a bit past its prime - it literally exploded out of the bottle, though still a very enjoyable beer; amber color; citrusy, spicy aroma; nice citrusy hop flavor with the spicy, fruity notes of a Belgian ale

4.2
jwtinn01 (34) - louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Perfectly balanced beer with slight hop taste. A good summer beer or saison you could drink multiple of.
