elihapa (1525) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - MAR 14, 2009
On tap, Vices et Versa. Pours opaque gold with a white head. Wheaty nose. Body has intense clove and wheat, with a spicy, herbal finish. Palate remains pleasingly buttery throughout. Solid beer, if not stylistically overlapping with Belgian Whites.

radiomgb (2249) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 11, 2009
Clear golden orange in colour with a thin white coloured head, light lacing. The aroma was of oranges, lemons, some spice, bread and yeast. The flavour has some grapefruit, moderate bitterness, lots of citrus, yeast, must and a bit of brett. Lightly bitter mouthfeel, medium body, medium/high carbonation. Finishes bitter, with yeast and spice.

This didn’t have as much grapefruit as the Station 10 that I just had but was a bit more intense in the flavour. Moderate amounts of alcohol at times, quite refreshing.

Draught at Mondial 2008, Montreal, Quebec.
Sampled on May 29, 2008.

On tap at Volo Cask Days 08. A sour/tart nose with a hint of yeast. Cloudy orange/golden with a minimal white head. Taste is sour fruit, yellow plums, white grapefruit and starfruit come to mind. Light bodied, very well balanced, complex, tart, dry and most refreshing. Terrific.
