lesifflebiere (1618) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2016
Bouquet de fleurs intense en nez, avec en fond des pêches très mûres et doucereuses. Texture mi-mince, légèrement trouble, mousse rare. La bouche est originale, moins maladivement sucrée que prévu, et une très mince amertume en finale de gorgée. Entre les deux, beaucoup de fruité, avec une levure qui semble dominer les malts. Originale et bien balancée, un peu agressive à l’olfactif mais qui demeure assez accessible pour ne pas n’être qu’une bombe de sucre.

MarkoR (902) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 14, 2016
600 ml bottle from the LCBO. Pours a hazy orange colour with a generous foamy white head. Aroma is cereal, malts. Taste is cereals, fruits, some citrus, honey. Very good beer.

AleRider78 (573) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - APR 10, 2016
Enjoyed 600ml bottle with Chopz at AC’s Saloon :P Poured a thick creamy head and has a medium hazy appearance. Pretty good lacing, lots of carbonation. Sediments are slightly visible. Aromas of yeast and a fairly thick malty smell. Very flavourful hops and somewhat creamy yeast mouthfeel. Sort of mild spice aftertaste. Good balance of hops and malts, slight edge to maltiness. Pretty good.

Boutip (5797) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 3, 2016
Bottle: Poured a clear golden color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and light lacing. Aroma of residual sugar ad light cereal notes is OK. Taste is a mix of quite a bit of residuals sugar notes with some cereal and light fruity ester. Body is about average with good carbonation. The NZ hops notes are quite a bit subtle and don’t’ play a huge role as I would have expected.

ametras (1250) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2016
600ml bottle. Hazy orange with a frothy white head. Flavors are bread, melon, honey, overripe exotic fruits, sweet citrus and grapes with herbal notes. Light to medium body, moderate carbonation, oily texture.

Canmoore (401) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 27, 2016
Pours a hazy orange, with a nice creamy head. Aroma has notes of peppery yeast, and orange peel. Tasting notes include peppery yeast, orange peel, grassy hops, medium carbonation, and a dry finish. Much lighter and hoppier than an authentic Belgian ale, interesting!

Freaky_tiki (1015) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 24, 2016
Brought home from LCBO by Mrs Tiki. Is the third beer of the night for me & it throws a pleasing curve ball at me. Starts off with field grass hops, pepper spicing, a murky middle & then descends into a fairly long dry finish. Bitterness through it all. Prickly carbonation. Multi-faceted pale ale. Nice.

ChadPoole (200) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 19, 2016
Pours murky orange with a white head. Tropical fruit aroma. Has a bitter grapefruit and citrus taste. Tastes more like a juice than a beer.

jksipa (750) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 15, 2016
Bottle from the LCBO. Hazy medium orange with a small off white head. Nose is yeast, spice, tropical fruits, light honey and some banana. Very light sweetness under a spiciness that presents as pepper and a hint of cloves leading to a moderately bitter finish. Mouth is slightly thin with lively carbonation and a long dry finish. 8-/4-/7+/3/15

sallysudz (31) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 15, 2016
cloudy orange pour, off - white head. Nose had Belgian yeasts, fruit, spices, earthy grassiness. Taste is like aroma - yeasts, peppery pice, citrus, banana, grassy bitterness. Medium carbonation. Quite enjoyable, more sessionable than some other Big Belgians.
