[on cask at Beau’s Oktoberfest as "Wet Hop Bomb with Brampton Hops", 2012]
Sweet caramel aroma with some weak, fruity hops. Clear copper under a bubbly, white cover. Well balanced sweet versus bitterness, but weak in general. Light to medium body, moderately bitter finish, moderate carbonation.

Cask at Vankleek Hill’s/Beau’s Oktoberfest (as Wethop Bomb). Clear orangeish straw with short lasting white head. Smell is herbs, hops, and hay. Taste is quite sweet, cereals. Light hopping. Somewhat herbal. Medium bodied. Somewhat disappointing...

Cask. Foggy orange body with a small creamy white head. Creamy, cookie-ish aroma with strong orange hops and leafy notes. Raw grapefruit citrus hop flavour with underlying biscuit. Soft and chewy creamy palate. Quite drinkable.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask at C’est What. Wow! Hops are upfront in the aroma and flavour, but are balanced just right. This was quite complex and very interesting flavour-wise, with a beautifully lingering finish. My favourite beer of the 18th Festival of Small Breweries in Toronto. Impressive stuff!

Big fresh leafy hops aroma, opaque yellow, nice foam retaining head.Flavour of hops are front and center, though less than the nose, fine malt backbone too.Very creamy, really well balanced, bitterness is just right. Great Session Ale. Well done Adrian and Ken!
