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

jercraigs (9836) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2012
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

DuffMan (9542) - 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.

JoeMcPhee (9267) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 6, 2012
Hazy pour. The aroma is spicy and quite tropical. An interesting sort of kiwi/citrus hoppiness along with some marmalade and white pepper. Very hoppy bitterness. Nice fairly assertive bitterness but it works. Decent balance but fairly light-bodied. Nice really.

[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

Bottle [600ml]. Pours a cloudy copper with an average size long-lasting frothy white head. Some lacing on the glass. Aroma of Belgian yeast, herbs, grassy hops, citrus fruit and wheat. Nice hoppy flavour along with citrus, wheat, Belgian yeast, spices and herbs. Decent bitter finish. Average to medium bodied. Enjoyable and easy to drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
