Clear Pale pour with a nice frothy white head. Has a citrus and hoppy grassy aroma. Tres Grapefruit pepper! Smooth yeast and a grassy flavor. There is a nice balance of full body and abv, fruity malty hoppy bitter grassy finish.

Just an all round quality beer. This beer is good anytime, with practically any type of food.

CacheManyHose (575) - HONG KONG - AUG 20, 2016
Drank w Matt after Dani’s birthday. Creamy hazy beige, slightly dull but with a massive pillowy fluffy white head. Smells of woody bitter hop, musty yeast, moderate spicy grainy malt, fermented pear and apple, light clove. Taste is very deeply bitter, woody grassy wheat, yeasty and lightly peppery. Body is stony and bitter, frothy wet spicy grainy slightly fizzy finish. Lots of stony bitterness to complement the yeast and spicy malt. This bottle didn’t taste too fresh - or just muddy flavour of the yeast?

HKdIPA (658) - HONG KONG - AUG 20, 2016
750ml bottle (4/2016 I think) from Gatineau Broue Ha Ha at home in HK. Hazy golden pour with very big puffy dense head with lots of structure. Aroma is not that strong - maybe the beer isn’t super fresh? - bitter Belgian notes. Taste is bitter, spicy, sweet grain, stone fruit - more sweet than tart. Very balanced and certainly, as others note, doesn’t seem like it’s 10% despite the boozy finish. Not as hoppy as I expected unfortunately, and not a style I tend to enjoy, but a nicely balanced very elegantly crafted beer.

rosenbergh (10176) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 13, 2016
750 ml bottle. Bottled on 2014/11/11. Thanks Timo A. for sharing!
Clear golden color with a small white head. Belgian yeast, sweet malt and mild spices in the aroma. Hops, Belgian style yeast, freshness, sweet malt and spices in the flavor. Strong flavor. Lagery. Some sweetness in the aftertaste.

vadie (1229) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 5, 2016
Jaune brillante avec une petite robe blanche. L’arôme est bordée des agrumes et fruits tropicaux avec un tout petit peu de sucre. En bouche c’est très fraîche avec aucun signe qu’elle s’approche 10%. C’est la bière le plus fruitée que j’ai jamais goûter (excluant les bières de fruit). Plein de corps, plein de fruits et une bonne final amer. Formidable.

Tranquillity (1787) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 25, 2016
Hazy, yellow orange body, gigantic white head. Very lively. The aroma is warm, with subtle berries. The taste is amazing. Very balanced and not overly hoppy.

Kauge (1556) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 24, 2016
Bottle from LCBO. Bottled Dec 2015. Pours almost all creamy white foam at first, then a clear bright golden body starts to appear. Head retention good, lace too. Nose and flavour of citric biscuits and a warmer stone fruit tonality, it’s so nicely balanced between mellow sweetness and bitterness, it’s so smooth without veering into any extremities. Carbonation, body, palate - all lovely. All in all nothing exceptional, nothing too fancy, but oh my how simply good this is... I downed the whole 750 ml during 2 hours without even noticing : /

yourilevesque (1286) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 5, 2016
Une bière que j’ai négligé trop longtemps. On m’apporte cette coupe rayonnante et fraîche comme peu de bière peuvent se vanter de l’être! Une mousse blanche maculée couronne ce riche liquide et ne s’estompe que très lentement en laissant sur mon verre une dentelle des plus élaborées. Nez plutôt malté où le houblon à l’européenne apporte fraîcheur et légèreté. Un malt caramélisé, un houblon aérien. Corps très agréable en bouche où le malt caramélisé s’exprime sans retenue sans jamais écoeurer ni alourdir mon palais. Cette bière au corps indéniablement affirmé est légère et se boit d’un trait, si on a le malheur d’oublier ses 10% d’alcool. Vive effervescence de fines bulles, malts caramélisés, houblons croustillants. Amertume moyenne, une Grande Bière que j’ai trop longtemps mise de côté.

Bierdimpfe (208) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2016
Hazy straw color with powerful subtle activity. Super foamy white 4 finger expanding island head, lasting around 20 minutes, with strong legs. Aromas of sweet malty grains, citrus, and a little vinous. Flavors of lemon, apple, pear, caramel, floral and herbal spices. Pleasant sweet grainy biscuity feel with a nice citrus sharpness. Balanced taste and not too boozy. Slick medium body with perfect carbonation. Well intensified medium strength finish of short length, ending with a clean sharp citrus and slightly spicy noble hops feel. Overall a very good craft with a super fresh taste of delicious complex flavors, while the nose is a little faint. Very easy to drink and quite treacherous.

Alpha10 (591) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2016
2016/04/19 - Pours a hazy, yellow honey colour with a thick, foamy, white head that slowly reduces and leaves ample lacing. Aroma is amazing; Belgian yeast, banana, cloves, pear, tropical fruits, grass and a hint of butter (not unpleasant). Taste is cloves, doughy yeast, banana, pineapple, pear, peach, spicy hops and light alcohol. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with smooth carbonation and a finish that is slightly drying and mildly warming. I can't believe that it has taken me this long to try this beer. Exceptionally balanced while being complex and masterfully hiding the ABV. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
