4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On cask at Dieu du Ciel. Pours a very slowly settling but rather clear gold with a thick yellowed white head. Absolutely gorgeous as it settles out. Big bright hops, grassy and loaded with bright succulent citrus. Juicy as hell, tons of citrus but very light and quenching. This is absolutely beautiful and wholly unexpected. Incredible stuff, clean and fresh, like a fresh squeezed hop nugget. Finishes lightly and delicately with a touch of bitterness. Incredibly sessionable and delightful.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Drank on cask (4 oz) at the Montreal brewpub on November 11, 2012. Yellow light, medium head. Light aroma of hops cascade, a little pale malt. Taste a little more hoppy than the original, just a little, bitter light pale malt. Not really a big improvement!
