KimJohansen (10489) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - APR 24, 2010
Hazy orange with a medium off white head. Hoppy aroma with pine, grapefruits and yeasty notes. Hoppy flavour with grapefruits, yeast, pine and peach notes. Finished bitter.

TAR (2729) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - APR 23, 2010
Orange with pale-yellow hues. Beautiful pasty stark-white foam with a whipped-milk consistency. Strong notes of plastic, aspirin, and stewed peaches on the nose with aggressive scents of resinous hops, overripe grapefruit, and honey-drenched mango. Strong presence of borderline-medicinal alcohol. Very sweet and unclean. Dense and creamy carbonation hugs the tongue. Highly inelegant from the get-go, with an overaggressive medley of resinous and acidic hops and brash aspirin. Vague unripe-banana esters beneath. Quite slippery on the tongue, with a pervasive stewed-peach character which magnifies the overtly sugary grapefruit peels and honeyed mango. While certainly heavy on the plastic and rich mango, the hop flavors are commendably bright and explosive, and the aspirin and resinous-goo stop just short of utterly ruining the finish with causticity. Alcohol is felt throughout, severely marring the finish with a scratchy gullet-warming coarseness while deadening all subtleties. The Bruery did just about everything I wouldnt have done in brewing a Belgian golden. The choice of hops was an unimaginative one (Amarillo and Simcoe, Im guessing?). Why not a soft and floral hop rather than an overwhelmingly citric, tacky, and resinous varietal? The beer is extremely dirty (plastic, anyone?), as a whole, and much of the flavor has been sacrificed in favor of higher alcohols. Only redeeming aspects are the head retention and mouthfeel. Basically a run-of-the-mill Double IPA fermented with a Belgian yeast strain. Yawn.

fiulijn (20222) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 23, 2010
Tasting at Paps
Cloudy blond color; creamy head; very nice sticky lace. It has a very pleasant aroma of fruity hops, grapefruit, some resins, light cream. Malt flavor, very spicy, a bit yeasty, getting astringent at the end. Strong ending bitterness, with bitter oranges. It can be compared to tSmisje + Dubbel IPA, a crossover. I like it.

Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of Theis. Pours completely opaque golden with a dense off-white head leaving laces. Very fresh citrusy hops in the nose. Medium body, fruity, grapefruitish with loads of amazing citrusy hops. Dry and bitter finish - somewhat astringent. Nice. 230410

Tmoney99 (14206) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 23, 2010
Bottle. Poured clear bright golden color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy sour citrus hop, yeast and alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy complex bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where exceeded.

DeadGirl (478) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 19, 2010
Pours a slightly hazed deep golden with amber highlights, one-finger white head, thick lacing from the 750ml. bottle into a wine glass: A deliciously hopped nose- pine, caramel, floral, grassy, but predominantly citrus (orange, lime). Other notable aromas- honeydew, clove, and pepper. Flavors are nice, but somewhat disappointing compared to the hoppy bouquet. Tastes of stale grapefruit, clove, light cracked pepper, alcohol, and basic rinds. Its like you expect an IPA taste, but then surprised with barnyard yeast, lemon, and more citrus that tempts you into wanting hops even more. Drinkability: Powerful nose, ok flavor. Pairing: Seared tuna over baked pear, sauteed spinach, and cognac cream. Rebuy: No. #413 on 19042010, DG.

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 19, 2010
The pour is a translucent, gold color with a full, creamy, brilliant white head which settles to a creamy/frothy layer and leaves lots of sporadic, Belgian lace. The nose is odd and faint but still pleasant; some resins, lots of cotton candy, light spicy alcohols, some citrus, and dusty yeast. The flavor is similar with plenty of cotton candy, dry pine notes, some citrus, dusty yeast, and light grains. The palate is nice with a nearly lively carbonation, a velvety mouthfeel, and a medium to full body. The finish is crisp and dry but not overly so with candy notes, dry pine, and some light citrus. What an odd beer with completely different aspects interacting together. The sugar notes were a bit over the top and the hops were fairly insignificant for a hoppy beer. Actually a fairly drinkable beer even if it was a bit lacking in some areas. Not the best from the brewery but not bad.

kahns (4) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - APR 17, 2010 does not count
Appearance: Poured into a New Belgium snifter. Pure white cramy 1/2 inch head. Light orange in color. Killer lacing. Smell: Citrus, caramel, pinecone, dried apricot Taste: Citrusy hops, extremely faint anise, very small yeast sourness at finish but overall citrus bitterness. Beautiful. Mouthfeel: Dry, creamy bottle conditioned carbonation, effervescent on the tongue. Creamy foam on the cheeks at the finish. Piney citrus sticks with you. Overall: A lovely hybrid of a Belgian golden ale and an American IPA. A match make in beer heaven. Purchased at Kahns for $9.99
