3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle, 2012 Best of Beau’s pack. Very unfiltered, light brown/orange, almost mango colour, huge poofy off-white head. Bready, spicey Belgian yeast and citrus aroma. Taste is peach, orange and a hint of coriander, basement and earth. Very little aftertaste and it leaves the mouth feeling dry. Light body. Overall, slightly bland, but drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the brewery. Murky orange-golden body with an exceptionally large and creamy white head. Aroma hold bready yeast, mellow sweet tropical fruit, and some herbaceous hops. Flavour mostly follows - yeast, pineapple, cut grass - but there’s also a nice hit of citrus peel in the finish. Fuller in body and flavour than is typical of a 4.5% beer. Well done!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
600 mL bottle from the LCBO, served in a snifter. Pours hazy orange-amber with a moderate, off-white head that remains and leaves lots of fluffy lace. On the nose, there are notes of grass, citrus, coriander and Belgian spice, along with pale malts, wheat and wine barrel. The flavour is surprisingly crisp and slightly sweet, with dry wheaty malts, Belgian spice, citrus and a touch of hops. The finish is long, dry, spicy, peppery and slightly hoppy. On the palate, it is medium in body with a smooth, milky texture and average carbonation. Overall, this is a nice Belgian style ale. Saison-esque, spicy notes are the highlight, but it is quite refreshing and drinkable. 2012-12-17

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy golden orange with a bunch of foamy white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Smell is fruity like mangoes and a hint of pepper. Palate is medium bodied with an average amount of carbonation. Taste is sweet at first, then has a quick bitter kick followed by more sweetness and a slightly bitter aftertaste that’s over fairly quickly. Interesting, but needs more of something.
