reebtogi (4303) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 11, 2011
Purchased at LCBO while on vacation in Thunder Bay area. My 330mL bottle stated 5.5%ABV. Poured a cloudy pale golden color with white head diminishing quickly with little to no lace. Aromas of orange zest and yeast. Taste is lightly sweet with some citrus and yeast. Light bodied and slightly below average carbonation.

Metalchopz (2363) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 19, 2011
Originally rated November 2008. Bought at the LCBO, with an added sticker written 5.5% alc./vol. Pours a pale golden-yellow colour that is hazy. Carbonation is decent, with a small white head that does not leave much behind. The aromas are very mild with little orange zest and Belgian white yeast. A refreshing mouthfeel that is semi-crisp. Again, not much to the taste. A little citrus, a little yeast and a little apple aftertaste. Not much here at all.

mabel (5805) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2009
[1995-20090213] Bottle. Sweet heavy celery yeast and floral toasted hay aroma. Slightly hazy, pale yellow body with a long-lasting creamy white head and some central bubbles. Mild floral yeast flavour with toasted sweet hints of corn. Light-medium body. Good.

Papillon (379) - Sudbury, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 26, 2009
330 mL Bottle picked up at an LCBO outlet March 26; Best-Before Date 05/09. Pale cloudy straw yellow body, very lively carbonation with a small quickly dissipating soapy head leaving some lacing. Grainy-yeasty aroma with a hint of lime. Very sweet but thin in the mouth, as if a sweetener was added, wheat stands out in the taste along with notes of pear, bananas, citrus, peach, and green grapes followed by a whisper of cloves. C’mon, Belgium, you can do much better :(

Strangebrewer (891) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 22, 2009
bottled 330ml 5.5%. Poured hazy pale yellow with dissipating white bubbly head. Citrus yeast aroma. Very light mouthfeel, low carbonation. Mild citrus and spices. Not worth the price, I’d sooner drink a value version.

cyrenaica (1031) - Milton, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2008
330ml bottle
5.5% ABV
Best Before Date: April 2009
I tried this beer on September 12, 2008 at "Smokeless Joes" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer pours a cloudy golden yellow with a thick, bubbly, white head that lingered. The aroma was malted wheat, cloves, and some sweet banana. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour was very crisp with hints of banana, cloves, and nutmeg, all on a wheaty base.

JohnBarleycorn (537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 30, 2008
Bottle. Cloudy yellow beverage a good representation of a white. Über-inviting spicy aroma features cardamom, clove, nutmeg and a hint of lemony freshness. Palate is unfortunately a little thin. Nice lemony flavour with a good malt backbone, but lacks the punch the aroma was hinting at. Only okay.

Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 11, 2008
330ml Bottle: I had high hopes for this one, and sadly it didn’t live up. Pours very pale yellow, seriously looks like urine. Aroma is heavy on lemon, a little skunky, and something quite sour. Flavour is initially harshly carbonated, a bit off-putting, almost like soda pop. Catching that skunkiness once again (perhaps mine is off?), alongside the usual suspects - lemon, citrus, coriander. It’s all a bit boring and underwhelming, sadly.
