Inflorescent nose with some doughy citrus; malty front end with some phenol notes, fruity and hoppy finish, somewhat harsh; slightly astringent and tangy finish.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - SEP 29, 2005
Sweet strawberries in the aroma. Orange amber in color with a quickly dissipating white head. Lemon zesty hoppiness balanced with some biscuity malt, slight toffee, and some melons and berries. Sort of bland mouthfeel and a slight lingering bitterness. A competent beer, but not outstanding. Praise, of course, to André.

Bottle: I loved what was at the top of the nose on this one - what seemed to be something like nutmeg & cinnamon. Pours a light copper color with a hazy appearance. the head was mostly diminishing with a spare lacing. Light toffe malts with an average amount of hops yielding a grapefruit taste. Because of the light body, thin texture and lively carbonation, it is pretty refreshing. Better than most other pale ales I have tried.

maltdog (621) - Colorado, USA - MAY 19, 2005
Draught. Deep golden amber. Half-inch head is dense and impressively long-lived. Playful nose of perfume, pineapple, and a touch of grape. Flavor of rye crackers; also woody, scotch-like, and traces of floral sweetness. Earthy, peppery bitterness. With time, the beer becomes sweeter, revealing scents of citron and sauvignon blanc, and some orange zest on the tongue. Fascinating. Palate is full, round, and smooth. Very interesting, compex beer. Delicious in a way that I don’t expect everbody would appreciate.

CapFlu (4957) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 18, 2005
(Draught) Creamy, almond head with a mildly cloudy orange body. Nose of cascade hops, mild caramel malt. Very creamy, some watery texture with a bitter cascade finish. Above average.
