500 ml bottle bought at Les Marchants de la Bière in Sainte-Thérèse (Quebec) on June 24, 2014. Clear copper, small head. Fields berry aroma hop, a little sweet. Earthy hop flavor, slightly fruity, aftertaste of bitter herbs. She is ok, but not my kind of hop!

Rating #1184 - 17.07.2014 On tap @revolutionyeg. I think I annoyed @foxjunk and the bartenders by referring to this as the Rihanna tap. Ella, ella, ella, eh, eh? Pours a golden amber, with a bubbly tan head. Aroma is citrusy, melony hops predominant. Taste is extremely hoppy, tempered with a pleasant citrusy sweetness that disguises the higher abv quite well. Very nice.

Metalchopz (2713) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 17, 2014
Pours a hazy amber colour with a small bubbly beige head that does not stay long, but a few bubbles remains on brew, with minimal lacing. Aromas of caramel and toffee with some grassy bitterness in the background. Fruity malt taste with the hops showing in the finish. Kind of earthy. Decent bitterness from the hops and alcohol is well-hidden. Not good looking, but goes down nicely. Smell gets better with time.

VT (1795) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 8, 2014
500 ml bottle. Pours a clear orangeish pale amber with a short lived white head. Aroma is very floral, fruity, mango and pineapples. Flavor is fruity, mango, pineapple and passionfruit. Finish is herbal, grapefruit, somewhat spicy. Nice punch. Full body, creamy, oily, viscous mouthfeel and average carbonation. Solid.

rodenbach99 (3681) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 23, 2014
Bouteille de 500ml brassée en juin 2014. Une belle robe cuivrée avec une mousse imposante. Un nez floral simple. Une bouche aux saveurs prononcées, sucrée et amère en même temps. Des goûts poussiéreux, pas pour moi.

500ml bottle. Clear light copper with a generous off white head. Not what I was expecting - malt forward with toffee and some caramel, an earthy and slightly aromatic hop but makes me think of an esb more then a dipa, light grass, butter, some juniper, moderate carbonation and mild body, somewhat bitter but balanced, lots of malt throughout this one. Interesting.

Pours a fairly clear amber with a small off white head that lasts and leaves moderate amounts of lace on the glass. Aroma is a mix of noble like hop qualities, spicy hops and mildly fruity citrus. Flavour is spicy, earthy, mild citrus, noble like qualities medium lingering bitterness, mild malty sweetness underneath and a bit of a medicinal hop quality. Not a bad beer but not my favourite hop variety.
