MXD (304) - Gatineau/St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, - NOV 3, 2012
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.

De couleur orange avec un everfesssance en bouche . On a une bière un peu herbacée et un peu agrume comme le citron . C est une Biere bien balancer avec un côté Malte mais très légèrement.

cattaneopapa (303) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 15, 2016
600ml bottle from LCBO. 6%alc./vol.Pours a clear deep golden colour with 1/2 finger of white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, pineapples, mango, mandarine, and grapefruits. Taste matches the aroma with some typical Belgian-yeasty flavours with a dry hoppy finish. Highly recommended.

DuffMan (9541) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 14, 2016
Bottle, shared with TylerDurden. Medium golden, lasting white head. Interesting interplay between the yeast esters and the hop aromatics creates a unique spicy/earthy/vegetal character, notes of crushed nettles, mint, capsicum. Strange but enjoyable.

Semi-filtered gold body with a decent white head, that disappears fairly quick. Weak nose, but what’s new for Beau’s. Belgian yeast on the tongue, with a spicy pepper in there as well. Something else, like grassy banana esters, but not quite, that I haven’t ever tasted before. Funky, but drinkable. Certainly not Beau’s best though.

BytownJon (56) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 24, 2016
600ml Bottle dated 8 weeks prior. Translucent golden orange with thin foam. Bread-yeast and orange peel aroma. Taste of yeasty apple cider and hint of spice, too much apple cider taste for me.

kevinsenn (1993) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - APR 21, 2016
On tap at The Berlin, Kitchener, ON. Spicy and tropical fruit aroma. Pleasant tropcial fruit taste, with some spice in the finish. Moslty sweet, with a bitter aftertaste. Very good.

Gluepot (426) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 20, 2016
biscuit malt and mild hop nose. A very thin white head on a rich gold and orange body. A well blended and refreshing Belgian pale ale. Spice, pepper, biscuit malt with cereal density, pilsnerish yeast, honey and a hint of kiwi and orange round out a complex and enjoyable taste profile. Taste sustains well but has a clean finish. Well done!

TheJester (2533) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - APR 18, 2016
600 mL bottle. I really do wish they’d get rid of these. Fairly typical yeast-up-front Belgian. It becomes more interesting about half-way through, when the hops kick in, and it has a nice, relatively dry, finish.
