LilBeerDoctor (3453) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2013
On tap. Pours a clear light orange with a thick white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, bready malt, citrus, melon, bitter hops. Flavor of tart light fruits, peppery spices, Belgian yeast up front and some bitter hops. The palate is a little heavy. Not terribly hoppy, definitely more of a slightly hoppy Belgian ale, but overall it’s enjoyable. 7/4/7/4/14 (3.6/5)

solidfunk (4012) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Very nice. Pours cloudy orange with great lacin and good head. Nice funky aroma. Hops, booze, tangy malt and everything on the funky side. Finishes bitter but floral. Great malt profile for an IPA - just the background you need for a hop dose. Hops is pine citrus and perfume. Very well done and well-rounded. LIke their saison karma but with more balls. On tap at brewpub.

northropfrye (2213) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 4, 2013
This is a style I’m really enjoying lately. On tap at brewpub, Montreal. Nice sweet and belgiany with a solid backbone of hops. Enjoyable.

SuperTiti33 (532) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 16, 2013
En fût à la brasserie. Blonde foncé. Ambre cuivre. Nez. Levure belge. Quasi saison. Bouche. Bonne amertume. Pain frais. Légèrement épicé. Florale. Herbacé. Sucré. Fine chaleur d'alcool. Un peu âcre en finale. Tout de même bien.

BiereLuc (898) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 30, 2013
Bière cuivrée-orangée, voilée et peu effervescente. Nez subtile de houblon avec une pointe qui me fait penser à des levures sauvages. En bouche, du houblon, de l’alcool et même... un goût de cerises mûres. L’alcool revient en finale, peut-être un peu insistant, mais rien pour gâcher le portrait final de cette bière savoureuse.

rodenbach99 (3158) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 26, 2010
Une belle pinte sur place. IPA Belge fermentée avec de la levure de Avec les bons vœux de Dupont. Cette bière est dorée-ambrée avec une belle mousse blanche, disons selon la lumière. Le nez est fruité, avec des arômes de pêche et de houblons floraux. En bouche la bière a une bonne amertume, les houblons floraux sont agréables, la finale est bien atténué et la présence de levure belge ajoute à la complexité de cette bière.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 24, 2010
Draft. Pours an amber body with an off white head. Piney and grass y body with a candied sweetness. Belgian yeast fruit tones, apricots and pear notes. Hoppy with pine notes and a very light grapefruit character. A mild bodied mildly sweet Belgian ale.
