BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - APR 8, 2008
Bottle from Gatineau. Hazy light amber golden hazy body with a big fluffy white head. Aroma is candied sugar with floral and peppery notes. Flavour is complex with noticeable dry yeast and sweetness from the candy sugar and herbal and earthy peppery notes. Lighter on the palate but noticeably no alcohol burn which surprised me. Well put together and quite refreshing. I could easily drink an entire bottle.

Bierdimpfe (179) - 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 (537) - 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

satanas147 (11) - FRANCE - APR 14, 2016
Wow. Quel équilibre! Typée abbaye avec des houblons plutôt aromatiques, je m’attendais à quelque chose de plus déroutant et pourtant ! Belle teinte claire, avec une mousse fine mais persistante, une amertume initiale bien présente, longue, mais vite équilibrée par des notes d’agrumes et de fleurs. Un peu d’épices herbacés, et une fin légèrement acidulée et durable. Son centille est loin d’être usurpé !

Freaky_tiki (969) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 29, 2016
Surprise treat from Mrs Tiki this evening. Decants a misty golden with beautiful serious layers of foam across the surface. Pungent aromas promise fresh flavour goodness. Grapefruit, bubblegum & lemongrass. Pine needles shine from the indulgent hops. Fresh dough, perfume, champagne. Fantastic balance. Subtle swirls of flavour. Dreamy mouthfeel. Alcohol is present but almost buried in the tasty goodness. My buddy Hippyhop nails it in his review when he suggests you have two options upon opening the bottle: share it with a friend or drink it solo & ascend to the heights a serious buzz. I’m working the latter option.

Flavor is more shortbread, mild yeast, fruit, sugar, pineapple, grassy notes in the finish with warm alcohol. Fizzy palate, but the flavors feel creamy. Nice.
