It pours a light hazy golden leaving a large one inch foamy and bubbly white head in my pint glass. Though pretty hazy, carbonation is still seen rising. Foamy lacing is left. The smell has the orange, lemon and Belgian yeast up front, but combined nicely. The taste is sharp around the citrus yet some distinct refreshing sweet qualities from some light malts make a slight presence. Lemon comes in really strong close to the end of the pint glass. The palate is light to medium with adequate sharpness on the tongue. I’d say this is pretty drinkable. It leaves a sticky aftertaste and finish. Overall, this is good for its style and good for me.

765 ml into many a chalice. Pours an opaque golden straw with fluffy white head (quickly dissipating). Nose of apple, orange, a bit of peppery; slightly off-putting tart flavour. Like apple juice. Slick and kind of light on the palate. Ok.

Light cloudy lemon body with fizzy white head and a bit of lacing. Bubblegum and sweet yeasty aroma. Blast of tartness that fades. Taste is semi sweet yeasty with a touch of tartness and a dry finish. Not bad.

ENG: 765ml bottle from Liquor Mart in Winnipeg, poured into the Teku. Strongly opalescent, yellow / straw / eggy color with huuuge, white glairy head. Aromas of tropical fruits, citrusy, very subtle bananas and cloves. Taste is very dissapointing, it’s like cheap sparkling wine mixed with lemon+banana juice with added water. Some sour aftertaste. Rather dry, low body, very high carbonation. Overall it is very drinkable, fruity, but I think too watery with very low flavor levels.
PL: Butelka 765ml zakupiona w Liquor Mart w Winnipeg, przelana do Teku. Mocno opalizująca, żółto-jajeczna barwa, z ogromną, jasną, białkową pianą (duże bąbelki). Aromaty owoców tropikalnych, cytrusów, delikatne banany i goździki. W smaku rozczarowanie - przypomina tanie wina musujące, do tego rozwodnione, zmieszane z sokiem cytrynowo-bananowym. Bardzo wodniste. W posmaku dość kwaśne. Raczej wytrawne, niskie odczucie w ustach, bardzo wysokie nasycenie. Podsumowując bardzo pijalne piwo, owocowe, ale jednak wydaje mi się, że jest zbyt wodniste, z niskim poziomem smakowym.

Sweet and sweet fragrance. Much citrus and a little yeast with a light fruity taste. Like this strong. Good bitterness which fills the upper part of the mouth a weak moment. I liked this beer a lot. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

A big 750mL bottle for my 9-double-dougnut rating... haven’t had one of these in a while, but seeing as GIBC was one of the very first craft beers I has when I moved to Chicago 21 years ago, this seemed a worthy beer to rate for the occasion. Pours a pale straw yellow, big white frothy head with decent retention and lacing. Nose is grassy, some mild funk, hints of white vinegar, chardonnay grapes, green apple. Mouth is light-medium bodied, lightly tart, creamy palate, bread dough, fresh cut hay, lemon grass, white pepper. Finishes with a subtle sweetness. Essentially almost everything about this one is subtle, which with all the extremism in the style you see from craft brewers lately, isn’t necessarily a bad thing. 900 bottles of beer on the wall, 900 bottles of beer... take ’em all down, buy me a new liver... 900 bottles of beer on the wall. ;-P
