LadySusan (720) - Ste-Therese, Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2012
750 ml. bottle shared with Quevillon.The color is a hazy honey with a thick beige head and a lot of lace and very bubbly. The aroma is of malt sweet fruits. The taste is of malt sweet fruits like oranges,bananas and others, with some spices, yeast a good mix. The 10% alcohol is not that noticeable as to take away from all the nice ingredients. It leaves a very pleasing taste in the mouth.

Light straw color with lots of nice bubbly carbonation. Aroma is slightly sweet lightly citrus, super subtle Belgian yeast notes. Banana orange peel. The carbonation helps bring a lot of really pleasant aromas to the forefront. Flavor is clean, mouth coating, mild, pear apple, citrus, light pepper. This is an amazing beer.

Damico (2484) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 31, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2012 Huge pop when the cork came out pouring golden with a huge white head. The aroma is delicious sweet candy Belgian yeast and light earthy green notes. The flavor is a mixture between a smooth Belgian golden and champagne from the yeast, not dry but a bit sweet.

reebtogi (4080) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 1, 2011
750ml corked bottle listed at 11%ABV pours a bright golden color with plenty of white bubbly head which settles and leaves a thin lacing behind in clumps. Aroma is light malts with a bit of yeast and fruit. Taste is malty sweetness with some fruit and yeast and light hop bitterness. Carbonation is lively and body is medium providing a nice tingle on the palate. Alcohol is disguised well and this is one damn good brut.

sulawang (599) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 23, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2012 pours light honey yellow, medium sized carbonation, high head, sticky lacing. 1st impression: overly carbonated. 1st third of the flavour is blocked by the burping reflex of the overwhelming carbonation. Taste is very 8/10 sweet, rush of honey, malts, nuts, chamomile, with a mild bitter finish. Way too carbonated and sweet to enjoy properly. High complexity, high depth, long length, but out-of-balance in carbonation and sweetness.
