puzzl (3249) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 28, 2008
Tap at Spuyten. This has a superior bready aroma, absolutely fresh, fermenting dough, like walking right into a bakery. I love that in a beer. More dough in the flavor is complemented by some clementine, yeast, mint. Very tasty.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 28, 2008
Sputyen. Pours a hazy blond with a nice creamy rocky white head and nice lace. Aroma has some DMS and corn in there - doughy, ligth crackery pale malts, som real biscuitiness as well- english malts, and a bit flowery with some citrus notes. Crackery, chalky, almost dusty flavor with some more DMS, light corniness, straw and grassy with some floral hoppiness in the back of the throat. Meh- it was Ok.

hophead75 (2008) - Largo, Florida, USA - FEB 28, 2008
on tap at Spuyten Duyvil. Lightly hazy blonde in color. Aroma is light to moderately hoppy with spice, earth, and floral touches. Taste is light spicy and earthy hops with fresh bready pale malt. Body is medium and lightly sweet, touches of floral hops and a light bitterness in the finish. very clean, I enjoyed this one the most out of the 3 beers they had on tap.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - FEB 27, 2008
Draft at Spuyten. Light yellow color, like the inside of a lime. Aroma is floral hops, spice, and mint. Flavor is mildly sweet, floral, with spice in the finish. Some lemony citrus flavors showed through later on. This is like a better version of domestic white ales.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - FEB 27, 2008
Draft at Spuyten. Great looking beer with a thick, white head. Flavor is peppery, minty and spearmint. Dry, sweet and full of flavor. I doubt there is a better beer in thus style out there.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 16, 2007
Sampled on tap at the Saint-Bock. Pours a cloudy golden color with a thin white head. Good aroma and flavor of honey, malt and grassy hops with a bitter finish. The body is light and the carbonation is gentle. Very good, well-done and well-balanced, kudos to this young, promising brewery.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 1, 2007
Sampled draught at the Mondial, Montreal (May 2007). Opaque yellow-gold with just a touch of head retained....pleasant malty nose, honey-vanilla notes with very little hops, but so fresh and forward with the malts that I’m not caring....ah, but then on tasting it, BLAM the rough, earthy-grassy bitterness overwhelms the senses, toasty and a bit smoky even, carrying all the way through to the finish with just enough underlying pale malts to hold it together....citric and rather hard finish but quite refreshing, grapefruit and lime pucker the mouth but leave a smile on the lips....

mds (2200) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 9, 2007
Draught. Murky whitish-yellow body with a creamy white head. The aroma is bready with fruit notes of apple, apricot, and peach. Nice and crisp biscuity flavour with notable citrus hop bitterness. Finishes slightly thin but overall it’s quite solid and refreshing.
Sampled at Mondial on June 1, 2007.

Radek Kliber (6378) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUN 9, 2007
On tap at Mondial 07
Light hazy citric ale with smallish creamy top.
Fresh citric hoppy nose with grainy accents.
Light bodied, with gentle medium bitter tone. Light grainy touches, with raw bitter green finish. It’s better than description might suggest. Works well, created pleasant brew.

Eructoblaster (2957) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 3, 2007
On tap at Mondial de la Bière (Montréal). Hazy blond body with a good white foamy head. Average malty/hoppy aroma with light bready and yeasty notes. Taste is rather thin. It ends with a decent bittersweet finish.
