georgebrassin (176) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 12, 2010
Clear Golden blond with an amazingly large creamy white head. There is lots of tiny bubbles in there. Aroma is Herbal and citrus hop, spicy, earthy. Medium body with an average carbonation. In mouth it is really sweet at first, lots of residual sugar. Then is spicy, earthy and herbal. Hops really gives a lot to this one. Some bitterness at finish but well balanced. Excellent beer.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 2, 2010
Very sweet aroma offers plenty of melon, icing sugar and herbal hops. Opaque golden straw coloured body is topped by a huge, fluffy, meringue-like white head that lasts well and coats the glass with lacing. Very sweet flavour with nice background hops. The bitterness is pronounced without being overwhelming. Pink grapefruit is notable in the aftertaste. Alcohol is never apparent. Medium body with strong carbonation and airy texture. Chalice. Just above fridge temperature. Bottle sampled at presario’s Als vs. Stamps tasting.

Tmoney99 (13236) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Bottle shared at RBSG 2010. Poured a hazy medium copper color with a large frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate sour citrus and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Very good brew.

CanIHave4Beers (3969) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - AUG 6, 2010
Shared on the RBSG bus! Pours a hazy yellow with a good head and good lace. The aroma is pineapple and melon with a nicely hoppy and estery dominance. Perhaps the most unique and awesome thing about the aroma of this beer is a distinct presence of air dried laundry, absolutely stunning! The flavor is pineapple and a lot of good fresh hoppiness with a nice yeasty spiciness with some metallic notes. The bitter on fruity thing is taken to an extreme here and I like that quite a bit.

DuffMan (9201) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 25, 2010
Bottle, shared with TylerDurden on my sunny deck while waiting for the tenderloin to cook on the BBQ. Pours a bright hazy yellow gold with an initially very bubbly head that settles into a creamy whipped topping. Aroma is sweet and chiefly floral, jasmine comes to mind, with nuances of spices and spruce tips. Flavours are complex and delicious, with many things coming to mind: honeycake, straw, jasmine flower, orange blossom, light yeast, conifer, spices. Light and refreshing despite the ABV, beautifully flavoured and complex. Fantastic!

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 22, 2010
Bottle @ Volo Launch Party. Aroma is malt, fruit and yeast. Amber, pours a large fluffy white head. Flavours are pear, malt and yeast. Light bodied for the abv, sweet, good tongue tingle. Very good.

piscator34 (2298) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 3, 2010
Bottled sample via Savvy1982, shared with oakbluff. Pale orange in colour with strong carbonation. Aromas are of mild grassy and floral hops, spicy yeast, and a touch of tropical fruit. A well balanced mix in the mouth of pale malts, tropical, spice, and grass flavors. Moderate bitterness and light bodied. Very drinkable for 10% alcohol. Well crafted, but not a blockbuster in my opinion.
