This Belgian-style Ale is a golden example of our traditional bold character, but with a little something special to commemorate this milestone. Fermented with Viognier grape juice, 20th Anniversary is both delicate and assertive. Big without being brutish, cunning without being cloying, this is a grown-up beer for a big-time celebration.

Gachupines (1147) - USA - NOV 30, 2015
Cloudy golden with a thick white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is vague hint of grape underneath a bit of yeast. Very mild. Flavor is mildly funky with somewhat sweet grape. Very effervescent. Not bad. Wife: 3.3

Beerdedone (3062) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 24, 2015
Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow gold with a small white head. Aroma was yeasty and fruity with citrus, grapes and subtle spices. Flavor of yeast, fruit, white grapes, pepper, bread and light citrus.

CloakedDagger (1338) - - SEP 1, 2015
Bottle 65 cl. Pours pale yellow with a slight haze and a lively yet dissipating white head. Very spicy aroma, citric and zesty. Rich body, malt base has a strangely rotten note, very unpleasant. I have no clue what’s going on here, but it’s not nice at all. 010915

TattooJack (361) - Illinois, USA - JUL 27, 2015
Poured from the bomber, hazy glowing golden with a lot of fizz and foam. Soda like carbonation, nice and strong. Not usually what I look to great divide to provide, but I’ll buy at 8.2% and not disappointed.

Vignale (2720) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 6, 2015
Flaska från SB. BBD dec-14. Smutsgul, grumligt, medelhögt smutsvitt skum. Tolkar den här som en imperial wit. Har witens friskhet, jästkaraktär och kryddning men med mer kropp, sötma och fyllighet. Funkar riktigt bra. Bra balans. Funkar att dricka upp själv vilket inte kan sägas om många belgare på 8+%

Bottle to Weissbrau glass Light fruity esters, hay, apple, and yeast. Translucent yellow with a mostly creamy, bright white head. Taste is banana, pepper, light grape, bread and yeast.

Bomber from BOTW (Rochester), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear pale golden with a frail white head. Aroma: Lots of apple juice/cider, some esters, a bit of a sweet honey thing, citrus and coriander, a bit of booze. Palate: Medium body, fairly full, fine carbonation. Flav.: More apple juice/cider than the nose, sweet, boozy, lightly spicy, a bit of citrus, meh; sweet with limited bitterness and a boozy, sweet finish.

Helsdon (319) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 25, 2015
Cloudy blonde white head. Really mild nose of yeast, hay malts and a little citrus. Taste of citrus and a little acidic zest bite, those hay malts show up, and some nice yeast, and the crisp white wine flavours shows up in the finish. Aftertaste is a fresh tangerine. Very mild beer, very, very drinkable. Should be sitting at the dock drinking this one. Very nice. Surprised at the wild ratings swings on this one. I think it’s a solid choice. ’Course unless I head down to Buffalo I’ll never have it again, thanks LCBO.
