Bottle - 650ml. Hazy blond body with a thin white foamy head. Fresh malty/hoppy aroma with melon and grapefruit hints. Its sharp hoppy taste carries grapefruit and some coriander notes. Ends with a robust bitter/herbal finish. Enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy straw colour, with a small white head and great lacing. The aroma is dominated by huge citrus and fruit notes. The smells like a Pale Ale. The taste is dominated by the sharp fruity bitterness, very little wheat funk, and a thin finish. This is as drinkable and light like a wheat, but has all the characteristics of a great pale ale. Very interesting, and highly drinkable.

Golden to light orange colour, slightly cloudy. I’m surprised by the amount of orange and fruity hops in the aroma. There isn’t any hint of esters and if i were to smell this blind i’d swear it was more like a pale or something like this. On the palate the hoppy bitterness is present has some acidity, medium body and has a empty mid-palate but overall drinks like an ale. A very different take on the style. Like it alot.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(on cask at Bryden’s, Toronto, July 2013) Pours a very hazy darker yellow-gold with a helping of white cask froth that left lace. Aroma is hop-forward, tropical fruit and citrus peel and a bit of resin, a little grain in there but that big cask aroma overpowers the wheat. Flavour is not really as punchy as the aroma, with light tropical fruit and citrus and a bit of malt sweetness giving way to slight lemony character, wheat, a bit of hop resin bitterness, and a dry finish. Body is fairly light, a smooth cask pint, maybe a little bit watery. Good, lightweight, refreshing to gulp.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
It pours very hazy translucent (almost opaque) ochre; the head is off-white and foamy. The aroma has notes of: floral hops, tropical fruits, pineapple, and sweet grains. The taste is light bitter that finishes light dry; there are notes of: pineapple, white-grapefruit, and a slight skunk note. The palate is light bodied, watery, and has a medium finish. Overall, a watery mess devoid of style or substance.

650ml bottle. First, let me say, I bought this bottle without reading the back. Then, I opened this bottle without reading the back. Then I took a sniff, and thought "What the..." Pours a hazy pale beige/orange with a thin white head. Aroma is BIG on fruit (passion fruit / dried strawberry) with a faint resinous note, and wheat. Lighter bodied, with huge flavours of fruity hops (again passion fruit, and dried strawberry) followed by a resinous bitterness that lasts until the finish with some bitter wheat, and citrus notes.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
650 mL Bottle. Murky yellow body with a thin but tenacious foamy white head leaving nice big blotchy lace. Resiny hops rule in the aroma, I can make out grapefruit rind but everything else is overpowered, but yet I love that resiny hoppy bouquet. Wow! This beer is truly a hybrid of distant styles with the inviting fruity entry in mouth Belgian Ale opening the act, an intense pink grapefruit rind aftertaste, and a long resiny Cascade hop finish. Yummy!

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Citrus hop, tangerine with a hint of pine. Great hop aroma. Hazy yellow with a relatively long lasting white head. Light fruity hoppy taste, with fruit, a bit of onion in the middle and on the finish. Kind of a watery finish and bit of bitterness on the top of the palate. Light bodied and very refreshing with tons of hop flavor and light/average carbonation. Great summer ale.
