Bottle from the LCBO. Opens up super active, jumping out of the bottle, luckily into my sink. Pours a copper hue, off whitehead, some lace. Fades to some yeast islands. Nose is sweet, caramel, spice and fruit. Tastes bitter, smooth, sweet, candy caramel, a little bitter. Pretty damn good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A pretty good example of a Belgian Ale -- it’s light, spritzy, and has a good amount of Belgian yeast character (fruity/bubblegum esters) and some hops at the end. It’s not as complex as the best bottles out there, but I can get this at most convenience stores, and that’s a feat in its own right.

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2016 Sampled from tap at ’Beertemple’. Golden amber with a tan to white head. Sweetish, fruity-malty aroma of peach, honey, vanilla and some cane sugar. Sweetish-malty, slightly fruity taste of honey, peach, vanilla and cane sugar, followed by a medium long, slightly bitter, moderately yeasty finish. Medium body, slightly oily mouthfeel, flat. Decent.

Why not. Aroma is tart, citrus, rustic, horse blanket, some banana and clove but actually quite nice. Appearance is amber golden, white head, slight haze. Taste is horse blanket, rustic, dry, banana and clove is subtle, tart, very nice. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, dry rustic aftertaste. Overall, this is surprisingly good. I typically don’t like the style, so I’m pleasantly surprised.

@ City Beer 16-3-6: riktig trevlig utan att bli för kryddig och tvålig. Riktig fin smak med toner av frukt, jäst och peppar.

2/22/16 Chicago ($8 16 oz pour into vintage glass at Goose Island Clybourn Brew Pub). Mild ongoing carbonation, thin white head, orange bronze pour. Extremely sweet aroma, from berries (raspberries, blueberries), orange, lemon, peach and apricot. Taste even sweeter, and though I generally do not prefer sweet offerings, this one worked well. Somewhat balanced by yeast and grass. Texture light and thin, very easy drinking. Overall good offering.
