Pours a cloudy golden colour and an impressive lace. Smells of belgian yeast that’s characteristic of being fruity accompanied by a spicy aroma maybe some citrus. The flavour is yeasty with some pepper but surprisingly no citrus. Solid belgian pale with a nice touch of hop bitterness on the finish.

Thanks to cfrancis for this beer. Pours a hazy orangish copper with a nice white head and good lace. Smells of yeast and spices with floral notes. Taste is yeast and spices up front with a nice solid lingering hop bitterness on the end and a nice dry finish.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, at home, drank in Chalice.
Pours straw. Slightly hazy. Close to no head, but white lace.
Aroma is mainly typical belgian yeast, with a little hop kick.
Taste is clean, and sortof hoppy. I say sortof, because the citrusy tones that were dominant in the aroma are nowhere to be found, and are replaced by somewhat non-characteristic hopping.
Good beer that could have been much better if the Nelson Sauvin was a little more upfront.

Draught at Volo, Toronto
Cloudy light amber color. The aroma is lightly spicy. Smooth mouthfeel; good spicy malt flavor, strong bitterness, but not much hop luck.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Golden color with a lasting head, notes of spice, tropical fruit and hops.
On the palate loads of citrus, spice and a noticeable hop backbone.
An interesting mix of clean citrusy hops and classical Belgian characteristics.

2012-10-08. Bright but hazy orange, nice off-white head and lace. Aroma is a bit sharp, yeasty hop character up front. Sweet citrus comes out as a second wave, lightly grassy. Flavour is similar with grassy hops and mild citrus touches. Fairly bitter throughout, mild yeast character is less prominent than in the aroma. 7+ Average plus bodied palate. Lingering herbal bitterness in the finish. On tap at Brewmarket, Brick Works, Toronto

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours golden yellow with a big frothy white head. Aroma is yeast, grass/biscuit malts. Taste has a big yeast mouth feel with peppery aftertaste. Seems like a big belgian yeast bomb without much else going on .

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Beau’s Oktoberfest (Vankleek Hill, ON). Hazy golden body with a lasting white foamy/creamy head. Well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with flowery, honeyish, herbal, and yeasty hints. Its sharp hoppy taste carries malty, citrusy, and herbal notes. Ends with a good bitter/herbal finish. Well done.
