j12601 (6585) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 12, 2011
On tap at Vice et Versa. Pours a clear lemon gold with a thin white head. Light grain. Clean, but empty. No big flaws, but nothing memorable either. Light grain on the finish. Quite easy drinking at least.

nickd717 (3403) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 24, 2010
On tap at Birch & Barley. Hazy yellow in color with a one finger white head. The aroma is wheaty with citrus and big spiced and floral notes. Good if bordering on a bit much. The flavor is heavily spiced: lavender, sage, coriander, and others. Wheat, lemon, and honey besides that. Decently tasty. Medium-light bodied and fairly tingly from the spices with average carbonation. A successful experiment I think, if a bit overdone in some ways.

Dégustée en fût au Vices & Versa à Montréal. De couleur jaune dorée et semi-voilée. Nez de levures fruitées (agrumes), épicé (gingembre, traces de coriandre), léger de blé et avec des notes de houblon floral et herbeux. Moyenne-mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-élevé ainsi qu’une texture légèrement crémeuse. Goût épicé (gingembre présent en arrière-goût durant toute la gorgée, traces de coriandre) acccompagné d’un moyen goût fruité (agrumes, surtout citron) et de traces de vanille lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un moyen goût de blé aux notes asséchantes et un léger goût malté de grains de céréales avec des petites notes mielleuses puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère-moyenne amertume de houblon herbeux (herbe fraîches) aux petites notes florales. Post-goût moyen, léger de blé avec une légère amertume de houblon herbeux, des notes de levures fruitées (zest d’agrumes) et d’épices (gingembre).

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 13, 2005
Pleasant aroma suggests tarragon, vanilla and thyme in fresh pastry dough.Clear, pale gold body has a shy, thin ring of white head. Lactic, creamy, grainy flavour is mild with some pleasant spices in the finish and some mild fruity esters. Overall quite sweet but not unpleasantly so, and never cloying. Light, refreshing body with soft carbonation that is gently effervescent on the tongue. Sampled at Mondial de la Bière 2005.
