Bottle from the brewery. Golden body with a coppery hue and a fair number of yeasty floaties hanging around under the tight white head. Aroma of tropical fruit - prominently pineapple, with mango in a supporting role - and orange juice, plus a bit of caramel. Flavour is also dominated by fruit flavours - pineapple, peach, orange, grapefruit - starting sweet and ending bitter, with a nice progression between. A yeasty edge starts to develop towards the bottom of the glass, along with a buzzy boozy warmth. Quite nice, and worthy of being one of the last beers that Luc was involved in brewing before he left Canada for Japan.

Pours a clear golden with some small sediment and a small white ring. Aroma is sweet yeast and maltiness. Taste is clean and crisp with a sweetness from the malt. Thanks to jeremycraigs for this.

In short: An aggressive bitter-fruity-boozy yeasty blonde ale of some kind. Good tasty beer.
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed 6 months after bottling date. Bottle sent to me by robinrover, thanks a lot Robin.
The look: Cloudy dirty blond body topped by a medium white head.
In long: A bold nose throwing boozy fruits in my nostrils, grapefruits pineapples and bananas soaked in alcohol. Taste is fruits in a boozy mixture, mangos, bananas, oranges, white rum, pineapples, banana peels, yeast. Aggressive bitterness with an alcohol bite adding an extra punch. I might be wrong but I suspect some wheat in this monster beer. This is a bit of brutal beer, a slap in the mouth, but somehow it is also a beer that I found very easy to drink. Breweries like Bellwoods are the reason why I wish I had a dollar for every time Linda from HR told me I had to stop smelling like beer when I come in to work, because I would have $20, which is not a lot right now but Linda is a new employee who was hired one month ago.

Biberon de 341ml. Brassée le 24 août 2012. Bière orange dorée pâle avec une mousse mince. Au nez, malheureusement, c’est du maïs, des légumes bouillis (un peu à la manière du Ch. Croizet-Bages 1988) et du beurre. La bouche est piquante, brulante, un mauvais alcool (cette voix qui sentait l’ail et le mauvais alcool, c’est la voix des nations et c’est la voix du sang…). Me fais penser à une mauvaise triple. Dommage

Last Splash se présente dans une bouteille de 341 ml qui est née le 24 août. Sa robe orangée ressemble à toutes les bières de cette maison. Son col de mousse flotte avec nonchalance. Son nez recèle de houblons fruités et de malts sucrés. Je sens des oranges, des pêches, de l’alcool et du caramel au beurre. Les saveurs sont bien costaudes. La force de l’alcool joue un rôle prépondérant dans cette mise en scène fruitée et somme toute très douce. En bouche, le liquide est rondouillet. Son pétillement est plutôt faible. Sa texture reste malgré tout huileuse. Sa finale montre les signes d’une pale ale impériale. Cette bière n’est pas mauvaise mais elle est vieille.

[4754-20120823] Tap. Grassy hops aroma has a hint of roasted orange. Hazy, orange body with a quick foamy white head. Boozy citrus flesh and hoppy floral leaf flavour. Medium-full body. Good. (6+/3/7/4/15) 3.5

Bottle. Great citrus aroma. Clear and clean white head. Not complex. I found it a little sharp and ABV was too prevalent. I prefer a chewier palate, but for a simple strong IPA it’s satisfying.

Bottle from Sammy on the 2012 Grey Cup trip. Not enough room in the suitcase so a nice pick for breakfast. Like a mimosa. Tastes like old orange juice, has that sharper bitterness of citrus juice too long in the fridge. In beer it tastes good. ABV does not mar the beer but contributes to the melange.

Bottle from brewery. Pours pale amber, with a thin head. Pleasant fruity aroma... English hops? Fairly light fruity taste, quite bitter throughout, with a slight alcoholic finish. This is pretty good, but nothing spectacular.

JoeMcPhee (8510) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 18, 2012
Pale orange topped by a thick rocky head. The aroma is very fruity and tropical. Lean pale malt topped by fresh hoppy goodness. Juicy and tropical with a sort of mango/pineapple flavour. Some sweetness but still nicely dry. You can tell there's a nice alcoholic kick in here, but it's not hot at all. Bright and juicy with some orange creamsicle aroma retronasally. Damn - this stuff is awesome. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
