3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Spuyten Duyvil. Pale blonde beer, slightly hazy with a thick creamy head. Aroma is very wheaty and spicy. Softly fruity with a bit of light chewy character. Lightly melony and a bit minty as well. Juicy and peachy with lots of honeyish character. Lemon and a bit of soft bubble gum and bread dough. Nice, juicy fruity brew.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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....

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.
