Golden color with a white head. Fruity aroma. Nice combination of noble hop spice and bready malt. Moderate bitterness. Koelschtrinker (20394) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 3, 2011
Hopfig-säuerlicher Geruch. Hopfiger vollmundiger Antrunk, angenehm bitter. Der Hopfen bleibt sehr trocken, erst spät bildet sich eine wenig fruchtige Note, etwas nach Apfelsine. IM Abgang ebenfalls sehr hopfig, harmonisch. 12/12/11/11//11

Oh ya, this stuff is good. Nice light golden color with a beautiful white head. Perfect balance of sweet and hops with a nice creamy mouthfeel. This is one of my favorites. Doesn’t do to well in a growler though, I’ve tried about 30 times and it never lasts more than 12 hours. Doesn’t really matter though it’s gone so fast. bth122 (1554) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2010
Draft, Sharp Edge. Poured a lite golden color. Had a velvety frothy head. Good balance of hop, sweetness, and alchohol. Med bodied. JStax (6478) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - NOV 5, 2010
On tap at sharp edge. Appearance is a somewhat hazy orange with a beige head. Aroma is hops and malts. Taste is predominantly hops but balances well with the Maltese. A bit bready. Nice finish. I like this one a good bit.

Draught @ Sharp Edge Creekhouse. This one poured a hazy, golden color. It had a HUGE white head: the bartender had some problems getting it to pour. She poured a couple of glasses to let the head settle and combined them to get me one glass. The head did leave lots of lacing. The aroma was a bit milder than I would have expected, even after warming a bit. Wheat, slight spice, floral and faint fruits to the nose. The taste is slightly tart, and a touch dry. Bready, wheat, background fruits and spice. Interesting and good. SSKD814 (854) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2010
I have had this several times on-tap at sharp edge but never found it on BA. This is actually a Belgian IPA much like Piraat.
A-typical for a strong Belgian pale on-tap. mildly cloudy straw yellow body with a creamy white head. Head fades to a thick collar and leaves some lacing behind in the glass.
S- floral hops, phenolic esters, and a mild fruitiness.
T- flavor is much like the smell. Quite alcoholic with a nice hoppy (mostly floral) flavor and some sweet bready yeast. A mild fruitiness lies in the background. Finish is pretty dry
P- low to medium carbonation and light body. Alcohol definitely detectable and overall impression is light and dry.
O- this is a good beer but it is very boozy. I usually order this because its cheaper than everything else Belgian sharp edge has on tap. really a great beer to experience if you want a good Belgian IPA.
Serving type: on-tap

On tap at Sharp Edge Beer Emporium in Pittsburgh. Pours a cloudy, orange colored body with an inch thick, very creamy and dense, white head that takes forever to dissipate and leaves loads of lacing. Gorgeous. Aroma is floral and malty with a pleasant, banana Belgian yeastiness, and a good amount of citrusy hops. Some coriander and pepper along with some fruity esters and a bit of candy bread. Flavor is soft and sweet with a good amount of spicy hops. Fairly sweet malts up front with a hint of bread. Lots of banana and Belgian yeast come in with a smooth coriander, pepper spice before plenty of dry hoppiness comes in. Some grass with a moderate bitterness and fairly sweet in the finish as this completely dries and leaves a lengthy aftertaste. Medium to full body and creamy with a very light feeling carbonation. Overall, a pretty cool beer. Lots of hops in a Belgian ale with a solid malty sweetness. Not a lot of carbonation and an almost full body add to the sweetness, but help balance the bitterness nicely. I like this a lot. Not bad at all and cool to have as this place’s house beer. deyholla (11597) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 24, 2009
Bottle. Poured maize with an off-white head. Aroma had a bit of everything, malts (grain), hops (citrus and floral) and yeast and a bit of an underlying spice, perhaps cinnamon. Flavor began subdued with sweet hops and ended with a bitter citrus finish. SaintMatty (7362) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - SEP 9, 2009
Draught (Poatersgat, Brugge) - Amber with a creamy head. Hoppy and fruity aroma with a hint of spice. The taste is very hoppy and bitter, but with a noticeable fruity element. Grapefruit and caramel are detected in the taste along with a hint of spicy malt.
