JoeMcPhee (8302) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, - JUN 25, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2014 Bottle from LCBO. Pale golden pour with a thin white head. The aroma is awesome - lots of bright spicy/herbal aroma. Sort of gruit-like but with a flinty dryness in addition to a bit of soft fruitiness. There is a little bit of spice and a touch of lean pale malt. It has an almost bretty character even though I don’t think they use any. Earthy bitterness but a lingering freshness. Really damn tasty. Tap at Brydens. Very pale golden pour with a little bit of soft yeast suspension. Nice light fruit and a soft earthiness. Moderate bitterness with a touch of light spice on the finish. Pretty nice, summery beer. Lingering wheatiness flavour. 7 3 7 3 14

Une blonde voilée ayant une belle mousse légère, et persistante. Un nez qui me surprend, qui est bien herbacé et floral, qui nous transporte sur la Basse Côte-Nord. Le goût n’est pas sans rappeler des tisanes inuites, à base de genévrier et de plantes et d’herbes variées.Il y a une belle amertume sèche et plaisante qui plait à mon palais. (1100-120614)

OOKPIKABLE (50) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2014
Pours gorgeous amber with thick white head. Aroma of APA spruce and citrus, as well as blueberry. Tastes of flowers, banana, blueberry, banana and the dominant citrus. Refreshing yet complex. A really nice beer.

simardsam (116) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 14, 2014
Dorée/cuivrée, avec un col de couleur crème. Nez d’épices herbacé et d’agrumes. Goût de caramel et d’épices chaudes. Finale légèrement sèche et amer. (Notes du Mondial 2014)

This pours with a fluffy white head on top of a slightly cloudy, medium to dark amber body. It has a very pleasant hoppy aroma that also has fruit and floral aspects. All of the ingredients give it a complex character, but not overly so. It’s a crisp and slightly dry but quite refreshing beer that you can just sit back and enjoy. It’s very easy to drink, feels good to the palate and has a very pleasing finish.

Hammy78 (724) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 22, 2014
Bottle from the LCBO. Pours a cloudy golden hue, big fluffy white head, tons of lace. Smells of sweet citrus, hops and honey. Tastes a touch bitter, rather sweet, a little spicy, very floral. Quite good.

lukin (420) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2014
bottle. Golden colour, nice lasting head. Aroma of piney hops. Taste is dominated by hops, very fresh, but not enough malt to balance. Good if you like this sort of hop bomb, not for me.

Eructoblaster (2949) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 5, 2014
Bottle - 600ml. Pours a cloudy chestnut body with a huge white frothy head. Fresh hoppy aroma with malty, grainy, herbal, and flowery hints. Its sharp hoppy taste carries malty, woody, flowery, grainy, and some sour berries notes. Ends with a robust, long bitter finish. Good stuff!

Belle couleur d’ambre, un peu cuivrée sur les bords, avec une généreuse portion de mousse blanche qui résiste au temps. Nez épicé, herbacé mais qui est surtout riche en houblons. La bouche est dans les mêmes tons, herbes nordiques et beaucoup de houblons, le tout étant relativement amer. Une savoureuse concoction hivernale, dont le tranchant la rend tout aussi propice aux températures plus chaudes.

BiereLuc (859) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 23, 2014
Bière dorée / voilée, qui présente un épais col de mousse à grosses bulles. Le nez est frais et parfumé de houblons herbacés (gazon) et fruités (ananas) avec une touche mentholée qui se dégage. Pour dire vrai, ça sent très bon! En bouche, on goûte les céréales fraîches avant que les houblons et les herbes prennent leur envol. L’équilibre est impressionnant. Nous avons affaire à une bière de dégustation à la fois complexe et totalement simple. Elle est légère comme l’air sur la langue, mais les saveurs alourdissent le bilan à l’usage. Le rapport qualité / prix de cette bière est difficile à battre (payée 4.85$ dans une LCBO pour 600ml). Je pourrais en tenir dans mon frigo pour l’été au complet, mais c’était ma seule bouteille. Merci au Siffle-Bière pour cette découverte inespérée.
