Spab (2143) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 23, 2013
On tap at Bar Hop. Pours a cloudy orange with small whiteish head. Belgian yeast dominates the aroma but some citrus and wheat. Flavour also has lots of Belgian character with tropical fruit, lemon zest, wheat, clove and pepper. Moderate bitterness in finish. Solid.

HeistAlmighty (1043) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - MAR 9, 2013
500ml bottle. Unfiltered honey colour, big, creamy eggshell coloured head. Body looks kind of oily. Aroma is citrus, tropical fruit and peppery. Taste is tropical citrus up front, with a punch of hops on the finish. Body is light and refreshing. Overall, edging towards a Belgian IPA.

[4850-20121008] Bottle. Mild grainy citrus peel aroma. Hazy, orange brown body with a long-lasting foamy off-white head. Super bitter dry grains and citrus pip flavour. Medium body. Great bitter bite but I prefer it sweeter than dry. (7/4+/7/3/15) 3.6

Gorbalev (2895) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2012
Bottle, Oktoberfest mix pack 2012, thanks Kristi! Dark hazy yellow, large white bubbly head. Really interesting aroma of pineapple and mango - very sweet. Floral notes as well, awesome. Taste - fruity - pineapple and mango again. Yeasty. Pepper bite in finish. Body a tad watery but minor complaint. Really drinkable with tons of flavour - nice job Beaus.
