3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Bar Hop. Clear dark gold with a frothy white head. High, delicate carbonation. Aroma is rich with Belgian yeast and the Pilsner/Vienna hops. Peppery with grapefruit and orange rind, hints or grass, pine, alcohol, and I think I even got some strawberry notes! Medium, slightly sticky body. Typically Belgian yeasty maltiness throughout, with a refreshing German kick and an added "IPA" dry bitter grapefruit finish. ABV is prevalent, but a balanced, complex brew. Really nice take on this style.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
600 ml bottle from Beau’s, served cool in a tulip glass.
App.: Clear deep amber with a large orange-light tan head.
Aroma: Lovely hops – pine/resin, grassy and peppery, some esters and phenolics for the Belgian character, a bit of Saison funk, good stuff.
Palate: Medium+ body, moderate effervescence.
Flav.: Lots of big pine/resin, good fruity esters, quite spicy and peppery (phenolics and hops), only a wee hint of Saison, great; off-dry with good bitterness and a long, resinous finish.
Close to DV Lupulus...really nice.

Not a bad offering from Beaus. Pours orange with carpet lacing and great head. Some floral aromas with some malt. Finish is bitter with some astringency. Lively carbonation. Ok balance, a little on the watery side though. Tap at Barhop.

A hazed amber gold ale with a thick creamy light mocha head. In aroma, nice fruity caramel malt with coriander and nice herbaceous hops, piney and orangey. In mouth, a nice smooth Belgian IPA with fruity malt, piney floral hops, orange pulp, very nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draught at Bar Hop. Hazy deep amber with a large fluffy lasting almost white head. Interesting aroma - like a mild Dubbel with a hint of Weizen and a lot of grassy bitterness. Taste - wow - resin and grass and way back there is light toasty sweet yeasty malt and some alcohol. Average body and carbonation, astringent and dry, with an incredibly long coating grapefruit pith bitter finish and linger - starts "Belgian" finishes like a malty DIPA. Powerful stuff!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Imbibe, Kitchener. Cloudy amber. Aroma of spice, herb, and apple. Taste is full of bitter orange peel, grapefruit, and herbs. Bitterness was very high even for me, and I’m a hop-head.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Thirsty & Miserable . Pours a hazy dark copper-gold with an average size lasting frothy off-white head. A bit of lacing on the glass. Aroma of Belgian yeast, fruit and herbs along with light hops and bready malt. Flavour of Belgian yeast, a good amount of hops (more then the aroma suggest), lots of fruit, herbs & spices and a dry finish that is, surprisingly, quite bitter. Some alcohol there but fairly well hidden. Medium bodied. Enjoyable and on style. Well done.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a nice pillow white head. Aroma is citrus hop, yeast and straw. Taste starts as a blast of citrus hop bitterness with a nice dry of the yeast on the palate. Afterwards it seems to go a little funky in the end with a small chewy in the body. Really nice, good job Joey!

Pours orange with some light head covering. Quite yeasty with nice fruity notes (maybe some peach) and a bit of a piney background. Medium bitterness with a nice, dry finish. Nice one.
