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.

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.

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!

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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!
