2012-06-07. Lightly hazy golden body, small beige head. 3+ Flavour is modestly bitter, modest fruity character, citrus but different from the usual citrus hop profile but I can not quite define howw, the hops have accents of flowers and tropical fruit. 7+ Arom of floral fruity hops. 7+ Smooth average plus palate. 3+ Bit unusual and not quite what I was expected but decent. On tap at Brouhaha, Montreal

Angelic flower petals bursting with authenticity. Orange peel as dawn, drawing the flowers upwards even more. Fruity honey and caramel provide the morning dew sweetness, the perfect companion to the dallying flora.
Prickly carbonation and forceful yeast betray the youthful beauty of the aroma. Flowers are picked from the dry earth this time. Orange peels dusted on some honey. Simple and pleasant, a truly original creation.
Reading a good book in the park.

Cask at Brouhaha, Montréal, QC. Pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma and flavour of citrus hops, some floral notes, lots of grapefruit & oranges and it’s quite yeasty as well. A refreshing and easy to drink cask ale. Great stuff!

In short: A yeasty Belgian blonde ale with a refreshing orange and floral character. Highly drinkable.
How: Cask at brewpub
The look: Cloudy orange blonde body topped by a large white head
In long: A pleasant nose of orange cake lying on a flowers bed. Very nice cushiony monthfeel. The cask conditioning was very appropriate for this session brew. Taste is just like the nose. Orange and citrus, cake-like maltiness, refreshing floral notes, yeasty, a little floury sensation. Not an intense beer, this is a soft beer that is very refreshing and with a nourishing doughy body. A session Belgian ale with an North American pale ale attitude. An easy to drink brew, the type of beer that I will certainly drink in large quantities with friends. If I ever make any.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Mondiale 08. One of the best beers of the fest and one I can still remember to this date - I even remember talking to the brewers about how awesome this was. Pours a hazy deep golden with a lasting sticky white large head (pour from pitcher due to foaming). Aroma is insanely weed-like and marijuana- dank as hell- spicy and perhaps a blend of spicy saaz and dank Columbus or something unique like that- light smokey hints with grapefruit and tons of resin, and good pils and bready malt backbone. Flavor is toasty pils malts, bready dough light yeasty character, Belgian phenols work with with all the dank and spicy hops, floral, pine sap, American citrus hops some saaz spice and earth- raw and fresh hoppy spicy finish great stuff!

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2008 Sampled on tap at Brouhaha. Pours a cloudy peachy blonde color. Very fragrant and pleasant aroma of hops, sweetness and flowers. The flavor is solid, the flowers, sweetness and hops blend pretty well. This is very enjoyable and I can’t wait to sample it again.
