A - Hazy, unfiltered golden orange in color, great lacing and a beautiful pour.
S - Very sweet, along with the extremely pervasive smell of fresh hops. It's incredible...almost smells like a wheat beer, but the hops really burst on through.
T - Wow. Just...wow. I always get inexplicably excited for Bedlam to be released, and every year I get a reminder as to why. There's an almost candy-like sweetness here, with hints of orange and grapefruit. I would almost describe the taste as "juicy." Follow that up with a really heavy dose of hops, and this is an amazing Belgian IPA.
M - Wonderful. Perfect carbonation, great balancing, smooth finish and a pleasant aftertaste.
O - I've had a lot of Belgian IPAs, but none hit it quite on the head like Ale Asylum does. All of their beers are great, but Bedlam is (imo) the best of them all. Superb, and a must-try if you ever come up to Madison!
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a bottle into tulip
A - Pours a wonderful orange color with about 1 finger of white head that fades rather quickly.
S - The citra hop really shines here. Pineapple, mango, apple, orange peel. Bubblegum and traditional Belgian yeast come through very apparently as well. Quite a treat to the nose.
T - Somewhat similar to the nose. Green apple, bubblegum, pineapple, pear, other light fruits and Belgian yeast come through. Bitterness is up there. I'd imagine IBUs in the 90s or so. Very balanced and easy drinking. No alcohol or heat. My new favorite Belgian IPA!
O - This beer blew me away for the style. The only other Belgian IPA I've had that comes close is Lagunitas Little Sumpin Wild, but I haven't had Duvel yet. If you live in Wisconsin, don't hesitate upon purchasing a sixer of this stuff. Easy drinking and flavorful: everything you would want in a Belgian IPA.
