Not every beer has to be a huge palate-wrecker to be fun to drink. Pours light orange with little head or lacing. Nose is yeast, citrus. Aromas are same with some breaded notes and some light hop bitterness in the finish, as well as some late spice. Tastes are light sweet and light bitterness. A nice, refreshing beer with light body and low-ish carbonation.

Gorbalev (2906) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2012
Beaus best of 2012 4 pack. Medium yellow, good sized head. Light yeasty and fruit aroma. Taste is very tasty and very quenching - a little yeasty and really refreshing crisp fruit. Lightly hopped. Just a perfect session beer, good one Beaus.

robinvboyer (2985) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 23, 2012
Dark, hazy copper pour, with a huge rocky white head. Solid citrus aroma, some pine also. Grainy malts, a little sweetness. Soft mouth feel, soft carb. Hope delivery throughout and delivery a good dose of bitterness in the finish with a nice pithy citrus exclamation. Great session ale.

Metalchopz (2198) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 17, 2012
Came in a 4-pack with three other different ones, as their best of 2012 (voted by the fans). Batch no. 2910. Wow ! This is quite interesting. A mix between a Belgian and a Pale ale. Pours a cloudy golden-amber colour with a foamy off-white head that laces the glass with soapy chunks. A beautiful blend of aromas, between the mild grassy hop and the Belgian yeast. The taste is pretty similar, with the hop not overpowering, but creating a nice mild dryness. Notes of peaches and other fruits, with the cereal grains (rye) showing in the finish and hints of the yeast. I really enjoyed this one, just like their Koru. Belgian style, with more hop and great for a session ale.

600 mL bottle. Pours a hazy cider color with a nicely lacing white head. Nice aroma profile, sour yeast with buttery biscuit notes, orange, spices and a little wood. Taste is mild, a touch of sweetness, a little hop and a great yeasty finish. Dry and medium carbonation. Painfully drinkable, love the fact that this beer has so much flavor and so little alcohol. Aches for rustic pate and pickles.

I thought that based on the low ABV, this beer would be my least favourite among this best of 2012 four pack. Not so much. Still to be determined the final rank of this one within it’s peers, but for now holy sht who cares? Everything it should be with a fantastic name like ’Farm Table’. Classic and refreshing, A meaty pilsner mixed with a dense swamp of belgian yeastiness, yet comes of like bitter floral water; an air of lightness to it. Love it! Now excuse me while I use it to wash down a homemade lamb and IPA redwine stew.

Boutip (4637) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 13, 2012
Bottle: Poured a slightly hazy dirty hay color ale with a relatively large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of slightly sweet rustic malt with light fruity ester and some light floral malt notes. Taste is also dominated by floral notes with some sweet rustic malt notes and some fruity floral hops profile. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Not your typical saison but well enjoyable nonetheless.

600ml bottle from the best of beaus 4 pack purchased at the lcbo. super hazy with a white head, this beer looks thick. nice spiceywheat malt aroma, maybe some rye malt in there to, some hops as well. the flavour isnt as good. light maltiness, dry chalky near the finish, spicy, dry and rough. becomes hard to drink the more you have, pretty much the opposite of a session beer.

pushkinwow (1955) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 20, 2012
On tap at the 20th Vermont Brewers Festival - thought it was interesting that I travelled so far to try something from so close. Hazy pale gold with a nice white head. Doughy malt with some chardonnay and oak, orange zest, some cloves. Moderate to high carbonation with a fresh but mild body, some farmhouse, yeast, fresh hops and mild citrus.
