mcberko (11949) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 14, 2012
On tap at Dieu du Ciel, pours a hazy orangey dark amber with a medium beige head. Aroma of freshly baked bread and slight floral hops, and some light biscuit malts. Flavour is a bit peppery, with toasted crusted bread, some mild floral hops and crackery malts. Easily drinkable, characterized by the crusty bread and pepper. Solid APA.

Sammy (10566) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 16, 2012
Enjoyed on cask at the brewpub. Incredible cask gorgeous head and body from a cask, super lacy. Very smooth mouthfeel. Great drinkability, a concoction of orange and grapefruit.

jercraigs (9253) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 16, 2006
Cask. Dark amber brown, good sized fluffy tan/off-white head and a bit of lacing. Hoppy, green, vegetable (celery?) notes in the aroma. More celery (but not...) in the flavour, pleasant moderate bitterness, caramel malt and an earthy celery bitterness and tang that is present throughout and lingers in the aftertaste. (I wonder now that I know what was in it, if it was the rye that I was having trouble describing). Light but very smooth palate. (3+) Good but not exceptional, couldn’t quite wrap my tastebuds around it.

JoeMcPhee (9169) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 29, 2008
Cask at Spuyten Duyvil. Citrusy hop aroma over some rich spicy malts. A combination of lemon and grapefruit along with a bit of pine and tropical fruit. Some nice spicy wheat/rye character in the back. A hint of peppery spiciness. Flavour is good and fresh with lots of wheat and lightly caramelly malts. Nice combination of spiciness, citrusy/tropical hops and a lingering citrus flavour. Good balance.

Toast, light sweetness, a touch of bitterness, toast and malt. Smooth with very light rye notes. Toast and malty sweetness and spicy rye.

The Lure:
Floating citrus fruit of all kinds atop a grainy cereal broth. Inviting yet never overwhelming. Earthiness roams within the oranges, a wealthy number quietly suggesting a tongue-first dive.

The Festivities:
An obese, viscous cereal body becomes a burden to the quaffing half way through the glass. There must be way more rye in this than most rye ales. Fruity hops blend perfectly with the flavorful, suave malts, achieving succulent balance. Yeast and rye take a lot of room on the palate, creating an earthy, wooden, resinous character, which is in unison with bitterness hops. If the palate wasn’t hindering subsequent sips with its massive girth, I would love this.

A winter coat in indian summer.

laiti (7874) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 28, 2015
Draught (6%) @ Lambic Foeder. Rated on 25.06.2015
Aroma has hayish malt and some grain. Also toffee and apricot. Flavour has strong resiny tones, ripe fruits and some hayish grain. Also mild ash. Slightly too foamy palate. A woody and dryish amber. Becomes malty, cereal-like and biscuity at the end of the glass.

Draft at Dieu du ciel with Linh, Minh and Angela. Pours a deep, deep red with thin off white lacing. Aroma is light hop, clean malt and rye. Mouthfeel is medium with clean hop, sweet malt and light spice. The rye character seems to take center stage which isn’t a bad thing. Just seems a touch underwhelming.
