4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
October 20, 2013 - gravity cask at Cask Days 2013. Very hazy orange-gold with a solid and lasting large frothy white head. Oh boy, what an aroma - tropical fruit, lemon zest, intense floral bitterness - and even a vague funky character, drives this up to a 9 - great! Taste follows, not much funk, but fruit and somewhat catty bitterness for days - restrained alcohol. Solid body, airy, lightly astringent, medium-long not intensely bitter finish - beer of the fest for me.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Undated bottle (fresh) from YouriLevesque, drunk 10/8/15.
All the makings of a Trillium beer here: you’ve got a fantastic amount of dense white head with good retention and a hazy golden body with ample carbonation.
Good variety of hop notes in the nose ranges from tropical fruits (lots of mango) to ruby red grapefruit, melon and plenty in between. Clean, no alcohol and with a light house yeast character that adds a fresh charm to it. Great strength of aroma and no heavy pine/resin.
Lovely balance in the mouth with well-attenuated malts adding honey, light sourdough and biscuit notes while the tropical fruits, sweet citrus notes and just a bit of tangy/punchy Galaxy-esque flavors make up the hop flavors. Getting back to the Trillium parallel, the mouthfeel is perfect, with tight carbonation and a supply malted texture. No alcohol, clean, drinkable and without any harsh bitterness/resin. A grand beer, thanks Youri!

Resinous pine notes, lots of fruit, pineapple, grapefruit, peach, lemon candy and a very faint whiff of pot on the nose. Taste? Citrus pith, resinous notes, an interesting light note of fresh mint, into some metallic notes, light spice, more of the lemon candy and faint pot, and lots of bitter citrus in the finish. Rock solid.
