330ml bottle. Pours an opaque amber/Orange with a one finger, egg shell head. Carbonation rising up the sides of the glass. Aroma is slightly sweet. Candy sugar, yeast, and slight caramel.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 mL bottle from LCBO served cool in a tulip glass. Cloudy deep amber with a full light tan head. Some bright fruitiness, rich sweet malts, somewhat zingy citrus peel, brown sugar and toffee, a bit of alcohol. Medium body, full, rounded effervescence. Lots of sweet caramel and toffee maltiness, a little alcohol, citrus zest, melanoidin, somewhat fruity and estery, quite estery really, a bit savoury, Belgian amber fits the bill; sweet with minimal bitterness and a long, sweet, pleasantly malty and fruity finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours maple syrup brown with a plush white cap. There’s a whole lotta shakin’ going on in this flavour profile: freshly squeezed tangerine, a grassy edge & a sour underbelly. A great sipper after a couple tight-like-that afternoon cocktails as I try to figure out how to make Sunday night pasta without slurring my words.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the LCBO. Pours a a hazy brownish amber with a two finger tan head that settles quickly. Nose is yeast, sweet roasted malts, some spice and candied fruit. Starts a bit sour with sweet toffee and some citrus in the middle ending up with ginger and pepper creating a dry bitterness. Medium slick body with quite active carbonation. There is a lot going on here.
