WOW. My new Spring favourite (or is would be if Spring came to Alberta). Tap at Three Boars. Light amber with a thin white head. Hoppy nose has some fruity notes. Light body with a delicate touch and great fruity hop flavour. Delicious.

Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a big frothy lacey white head. Aroma of pine, hop resin, citrus and light tropical fruits with some pale malt sweetness for balance. Taste is pine, resin, grapefruit citrus with some balanced fruity hops flavors like guava and passionfruit and a good malt balance with a nice smooth slick bitterness on the finish. Finish is medium dry and delicately balanced. Easily drinkable by the boat load and that’s scary for its abv.

Had this on tap at Dieu du Ciel. Fortunella has a nice, fruity, citrus aroma. The beer has a clear, light golden colour to it. It has a sweet head, while the rest of it has a citrus (Kumquat) flavour, but the flavouring is not sour like some other fruit beers tend to be. The hops gives it some bitterness, which helps balance out the fruit flavour. Great beer! I will definitely purchase some if it comes out in bottle form!

De couleur soleil comme sa jolie étiquette d’été, cette bière assez puissante (6.5%) possède une belle mousse blanche et nous offre un nez prononcé de houblons frais, de pamplemousse et de fruits tropicaux. En bouche, c’est fort rafraichissant et explosif : les notes d’ananas et de pamplemousse sont en évidence, et l’attaque des houblons plaira à tout amateur de IPA. Le petit côté sucré est bien balancé avec l’amertume, ce qui donne une bière des plus désaltérantes et goûteuses. Une IPA à mettre sur ma liste des "à racheter", sans l’ombre d’un doute. Cheers!

Aroma is citrusy and hoppy. Very nice, unique flavor profile. A great IPA with the unique flavors of kumquats which are kind of funky in a good way.

Tap. Moderate roasted grain for the malts, moderate pine and perfume for the hops, light dough for the yeast, with fresh fruits like orange and peach. Head is average size, frothy, white with excellent lacing and is mostly lasting. Color light hazy amber. Flavor starts lightly to moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and slightly bitter. Palate is medium, slick with a carbonation between soft and lively. Kumquats are a nice addition to this tasty IPA. I guess any kind of citrus would make sense.

In short: An intense fruity blond IPA for the bitterness lover.
How: Tap at brewpub, when it was very fresh, the first week of its initial release (late rating).
The look: Cloudy blond-orange body topped by a medium white head leaving lots of lacings on the glass.
In long: Nose is juicy citrusy and tropical fruits. The aroma is very fruity but not to the point of feeling like it is made with a fruit (which it is), I know many "normal" IPAs that smeIl as fruity as this one. Taste is something else. A medium-sweet fruity attack followed by a monster bitterness of high intensity. I never had a Kumquat before (the fruit used in this IPA) but I didn’t think the beer smelled or tasted unusual, in the aroma and taste I noted plenty of orange flesh, mangos, peaches, grapefruits and such. All I know is this IPA was bitter as hell, not sure if the bitterness comes from the Kumquat, the hop bill or both. You’ve got to love bitterness to love this beer, I love bitter IPAs and I loved this over-the-top original creation. I had long conversations with the people at the bar while drinking six pints of this beer because if there is one thing I like to do when I go to the pub for a pint is to drink six of them (and I hate when people talk to me).

Bu au Mondial. Amer mais avec une légèreté remarquable et un goput de pamplemousse. Excellent
