    I've noticed a lot of Australian reviewers on here have a habit of completely misclassifying beers.

    I heard on AHB that it was an American Amber Ale like Fat Tire.

    Especially the Redoak sours.
     
    Parrotshake, danieelol and Lukie like this.

    They are the Jolly Pumpkin of Australian brewing. Can't resist adding some funk to everything
     
  7. The Quiet American is well within the range of normal Tripel balance, IMHO. It's just that it has American hop aromas. That doesn't make it a Belgian IPA, even if you accept that that's a thing.

    The reason it should be classified as a Belgian IPA is that the brewer called it one.
     
  9. Eh, Greene King IPA is a bitter. :)

    I'm just going to call it a Smoked Baloney Sandwich.

    Highest rated Smoked Baloney Sandwich?

    Possibly. Possibly.
     
  11. Nice drop, another good single batch from LC
     
  12. Dunno man. Just took a shot in the dark. ABV seems low for a Tripel. I didn't bother to ask when I was at the Dining Hall what style it was. If it's wrong, by all means suggest a change. I have no idea what it's 'sposed to be.

    Smells and tastes like candy bananas.

    Needs more lacto.

    Though that doesn't explain Victoria Bitter, Melbourne Bitter etc

    I sampled some at the Sail and Anchor tonight. Couldnt drink more than a sip. Too grassy and and a boozy/hot belgian yeast character. Not for me at all. And I like Belgian IPAs.
