500 ml bottle from the brewery. Pours a cloudy caramel colour, white head. Smells yeasty,, has some fruity esters. Taste hits the same notes, a bit on the dry side. Light, super stealthy abv. Pretty tame brew. Aftertaste developed a bad sour/bitter note as it warmed up.

Alpha10 (413) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 10, 2015
2016/03/10 - Pours a hazy, orange-straw colour with a foamy, off white head that slowly reduces and leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is dough, yeast, spices, stone fruit (peaches and apricots) and honey. Really nice aroma. Taste is yeast, clove, cardamom, peach, apricot, honey and light herbal hops. Mouthfeel is medium with average carbonation and a herbal, drying finish. ABV is nicely hidden. Aroma is awesome, but I found the flavour slightly dull. Still, a good brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pushkinwow (2196) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2014
500ml bottle from the brewery via Nick. Orange copper with a nice billowy eggshell head. Belgian yeast, light allspice and fresh bread, very light citrus presence that makes this quite refreshing, light apple and faint malt as well. Moderate+ carbonation, moderate body, bitter, becomes nicely dry with yeast, spice, peach skin and bit of bread. Very enjoyable.

GregClow (2952) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 6, 2014
Bottle from the brewery. Sunset golden-orange with a slight haze and a thin & persistent white head. Punchy aroma with notes of stone fruit - esp. apricot - and tart apple, and spicy hints of clove and allspice. Flavour starts with a simple malt sweetness with a hint of candi sugar, but starts to develop layers of complexity as it goes across the palate, especially once it warms. Apricot, nectarine, peppery yeast, clove, lemon zest, cut grass, candied orange and more all come through at one point or another. Finish has a slight medicinal character that is the only off-note for me. Otherwise, an excellent beer.

Spab (2708) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 30, 2014
500 ml bottle from brewery retail store. Pours a murky rust colour with large eggshell-coloured head. Aroma is gently tart fruit (apple, peach), spice, bread and floral hoppiness. Flavour is most prominently of lightly tart apple/pear and peach, bread, clove, flowers, and hints of funk and pepper. Medium to medium plus body. Drying finish. Quite drinkable tripel.
