This was a bit of a disappointment for the price paid.. Pleasant belgian aroma of sweetness and spice.. the flavor is hampered by an unpleasant aftertaste.

hopscotch (10901) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 22, 2007
Bottle... Mostly clear, yellow ale with a large, foamy, white head. Great retention. Spicy, fruity nose with tons of spicy, clove phenols and fuzzy fruit, pear and apple esters. Sweet, barely kilned malt flavor with medium, metallic bitterness. Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Lengthy, bitter-sweet, then dry finish.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 19, 2007
(Bottle 75 cl) Hazy golden with a bubbly, off-white head. aroma of yeast and amalt. Medium body with sweetish malt and fruit and some yeastiness - but hoppy? Well, the 80 IBUs are certainly very well hidden in a vaguely bitter finish. If this was an attempt at creating a hybrid between a Belgian and a "big" American, then the Belgian genes certainly won. 170407

pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - APR 17, 2007
Incredibly rocky head, clear yellow body, with the exception of chunky globs floating around at the top... quite disgusting, but Im willing to overlook that fact. Light golden Belgian ale aroma. Slightly piney, but mostly spicey peppery hops. Not blown away by the hops, but more emphasis on the hops than the malt. The body is relatively smooth in terms without a ton of viscosity and low carbonation. The chunks were gross though. Lightly sweet, spicey hops, peppery, with a slight Belgian funk and some lemon. Relatively clean, but not too over the top. Id drink it for the right price.

Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2007
Bottle @ T Brugse Beertje. Fruity citrus zest and melon, spicy aroma. Good hoppiness backed up with solid but not overly sweet malts and pleasant peppery alcohol. Hops tail off slightly at the end which is a shame. Although the alcohol is noticeable this is quite drinkable for the strength.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - APR 12, 2007
11.2 oz Bottle - Orange Yellow color with a huge white marshmellow cloud head. Slightly Hoppy but more earthy aroma. An incredible beer. Subtle, yet powerful. A prefect mix of sour bitterness and malty sweetness. Head lasts the enire beer. Perfect effervescence.

Jwasciuk (198) - Lowell, Michigan, USA - APR 12, 2007
Pours light yellow and hazy with a white rocky head. Aroma is mainly of citrus hopps. Flavor is balanced twards bitter, very hoppy, hints of apple and other fruits with a long finish. Medium to light bodied and very carbonated, overly so.

DuffMan (9912) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 11, 2007
Hazy golden colour with an amazing chunky foamy off-white head that creates crazy shapes as it recedes, generating thick lace. Yeasty and potently hoppy balanced nicely by a velvety wheaty creaminess, subtle spiciness too. Thanks Tyler*Durden and Rockley!

wheninhell (488) - chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 10, 2007
On tap at Rich Os gravity head 2007. clear golden with a nice white head. good lacing. the aroma reminds me of a tripple...malty and yeasty with a light dose of hops. light bitter grapefruit hop flavor with a good dose of sweet fruity malt and yeast. bitter dry grapefruit finish. medium to full body. interesing but it wasnt the complex belgian hop bomb i was hoping for....more like a tripple that got a slighly heavy handed dose of hops.
