Tasted yesterday in honor of Canada Day, cheers! Cloudy golden color, massive white ice cream cone head, solid lacing. Aroma of duty, earthy lemons and straw. Taste is barnyard, rising bread dough, sour citrus. Very nice.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
IP trade in Montreal for this bottle - thanks to Patrick, drank in Apr ’12.
Poured from a 341 ml bottle into a tulip glass to a slightly hazed golden colour with a medium white head.
A grassy nose with yeast notes, citrus, malt an spice coming across.
Taste wise bready malts, a lemony hop bitterness, honey and a yeast flavour similar to that found in a saison.
Medium body and carbonation with a clean finish.
Overall and enjoyable beer crisp and refreshing, almost ’helles meets saison’ !

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
"333" from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours rather dishwater gold with a white head. Aroma of mild - both bread and probably saaz. Med body. Flavor is something of a fruity pils. Not strongly fruity - but it’s there. Lightly bready and rather herbal hop. It’s bitter enough to push into a decent pils range, but this is an ale. Perhaps this is what happens with pils ingredients and an ale yeast. Might account for the fruit hint. Main attraction is the bitter finish - also it could pass for a clean beer. Sadly.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2013 Bottle from State Line. Pours cloudy gold with big fluffy white head. Nose and taste of freshly baked bread, fresh sugared cereal, citrus, pear, pie crust, yeast and spicy grassy hops. Soft carbonation. Medium body. Really nice balance. The best beer I’ve ever had in this style by far. I usually hate this style, but I wanted more of this. In fact, I might drive 3 hours just to get another bottle. It’s just that good.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
750mL thanks to noodleuser. The pour is a clear, light yellow/ blonde with an explosive white head. Massive retention, huge lace. Nose is sugary, sweet, lemon drop, candies, sweet dough, cidery, yellow pear. Oxidized apple slice. Weird. Taste is astringent, weird. Very strange stuff. Not a big fan. Stressed yeast profile. Medicinal lemon abound. Baby powder and mealy apple. Ick.
