Hazy pale amber with a very large white head. Aroma is banana, grain, spices, fruity. Medium body with fizzy carbobation. Taste is malt, banana, some kind of subtle sourness. Good one.

Lanchester (189) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 4, 2011
Pours a pale, clear amber hue with an aggressive white head, leaves behind some nice lacing. Picking up on some sourness in the nose, blended with banana and grains. A fair amount of sweetness up front in the flavor, moves through into strong banana notes and finishes with a light acidity on the tongue. High carbonation level really widens the body and creates a smooth, full mouth-feel. I liked this one.

Bouteille. Le liquide a une robe légèrement orangée et finement voilée. La mousse blanche cassée a une bonne rétention. Au nez, les quelques traces de levure rustre sont rapidement obnubilées par des effluves de pêches, d’oranges et d’épices. Les céréales de seigle rejoignent des parfums de banane qui s’affirment avec allégresse. Les houblons sont en fleurs et sont sucrées. Bouquet intéressant. Le goût est frais, je dirais même très frais avec des saveurs fortement fruitées et épicées et légèrement mielleuses. Les saveurs des houblons sont aussi en fleurs et manifestent une amertume fantomatique. En bouche, le liquide a une tenue somme toute solide avec une effervescence juste et une texture crémeuse. La finale me semble maltée, fruitée et épicée, voire même salée avec une touche franchement métallique.

On tap at brewpub’s anniversary. Hazy yellow pour, lots of frothy white head. Aroma is quite tart and lemony, a bit of grain and saison yeast. Taste is lemony, some alcohol quite straightforward. Palate is a little slick for the style, I was expecting more from this beer.

Draft: Poured an amber color with a white head. The aroma was yeast, citrus and wood. The flavor was rye, fruit, wood, and a little sourness. Overall, a complex beer that might not be for everyone’s palate.

On tap at brewpub
Appearance : Hazy amber with a medium white creamy head. Lots of lacing.
Aroma : Woody ans acidic. Slightly lactic. Oak sourness.
Taste : Acidic, light woody. Light notes of rye. Quite fruity. Finish is acidic and dry. Finish is also a bit mineral. Carbonation really soft, almost flat.
Overall : Very nice looking. Great wood sourness. Nice wilderness and fruityness. This is not something I could drink more than one glass of because there is too much oak sourness and lactic notes. Carbonation was way too soft in my opinion but I’m pretty sure that it’s not that flat normally. The beer in general could also feel more polished.

20100814 tap at max’s. Aroma is white glue, dirty sock, apple, American cheese. Weird weird stuff. Plum and pale cherry. No idea how to assess this one, frankly. Flavor has light sweetness and good though surprising acidity. Sweet-tart. Meh, I’m not loving it.
