cargo150 (782) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 20, 2014
Couleur jaune paille avec un col mousseux assez résistant. Au nez les premieres notes sont d’une blanche belge assez typique, Coriandre,Agrumes,Blé. En bouche la meme chose, c’est bien balancé, bien raffraichissany, le coté belge est bien la. Corps faible a moyen. Carbonation moyenne. Correct!

Boutip (4868) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 27, 2014
Draft: Poured a cloudy light amber color ale with a very generous head with good retention. Aroma of coriander with floral hay notes is quite tasty. Taste is also dominated by light coriander notes with light flora notes and some medium sweet malt notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Interesting even though this beer was served way too carbonated.

Lukaduke (2374) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Pours a light golden yellow with gaseous white foam. Beautiful round chamomile plays nicely with the earthy rustic yeast character and light soft malts. Hints of hay, lemon and dust.
