dandeman (619) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 4, 2014
Olfactif: Effluves intenses de résine de sapin avec notes de poivre. Nez intense à longue persistance. Quelques notes de gazon frais également. Visuel: Jaune / doré, claire, mousse généreuse, dense, au maintient éternel qui colle bien au verre en y laissant de belles traces. Gustatif: Les notes de poivre, de muscade, les épices piquantes, se transforment en résine intense en fin de bouche. Les sucres développent de la mangue, du miel, des poires et des fruits tropicaux. Excellente complexité. Excellent équilibre fruits / sucre / amertume. En bouche, la texture est généreuse et les saveurs restent longtemps. Belle complexité. Une bière dont l’olfactif n’annonce en rien l’explosion de saveurs qu’elle développe. Quel mélange parfait de résine et de fruits. Par contre, je ne vois pas beaucoup d’éléments représentant une blanche comme le prétend la description sur l’étiquette. C’est sans contredit une IPA pure laine.

mcberko (8699) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 30, 2014
650mL bottle, pours a cloudy golden blonde with a small white head. Nose brings out floral hops, light Belgian yeast and crackery malt. Flavour is along the same lines, with a nice dry palate, including dry crackery malt, a touch of Belgian yeast and floral hops. Very well-balanced, dry and drinkable. Decent stuff.

Gerbeer (2268) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 29, 2014
600 ml bottle. Pours a hazy yellow/gold with huge head. Aromas of citrus, yeast, grapes, and melons. Flavors of tropical fruit, pine, lemons and toasted malts. Truly fruity. Very nice. Easy to drink on a summer aft.

UXO (702) - CANADA - JUL 27, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy straw with two fingers of light fluffy head diminishing gradually to a thin cap and moderate lacing. Nose is piney hops and a little tropical fruit, light malt. Taste is balanced, medium sweet and bitter. Medium to full body, slightly sticky, with a lingering bitter, slightly spicy and gently warming finish. Well, that’s quite pleasant! Nice balance of the malt and the hops, with just enough fullness in the body to carry off the higher ABV. Sticky without being cloying, with a little bit of spicy pepper in the finish. Not quite a sunny day thirst quencher, but not a long way away from that, either. You could do a lot worse than this!

600ml brown bottle. Pours a light lemony yellow shade with light cloudiness. Holds a very sticky shaving cream-like white cap with great lacing. The aroma has some lemon notes and pine. Taste has yeast, wheat, citrus. Touch grassy in the aftertaste, modest bitterness. Good stuff.

2014-08-14, draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver, 7-4-8-5-16=40
Cloudy deep blond color with compact head. More accent on the hops than on the "white" part, mellow, fruity, stone fruits, with moderate sweetness. Well balanced, fresh and enjoyable.
Excellent.

2014-07-23, bottle, courtesy of Josh, 7-4-7-4-15=37
Cloudy deep blond color with small compact head. Harmonious aroma, of hops and malt, quite delicate, with a hint of tropical fruits. Smooth flavor; it has a mild spicy character, strong hopping, with a good combination of lemon peel, orange and some tropical fruit too. Light sweetness in the end.
Very nice.

Une belle surprise. L’amalgame des deux styles est très bien exécuté. Beaucoup de matières en suspension ;(

CapFlu (4725) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 23, 2014
Deep amber colour with a frothy white head. Nose of pine hops with a grassy undertone. Nice hop bitterness through the palate. A solid IPA.

marc666 (1) - - JUL 22, 2014 does not count
Bouteille de 600 ml 6,5 %. Belle présentation de produits comme toujours. Servi dans un verre tulipe. Belle mousse dense, blanche et persistante. couleur jaune trouble avec de fine bulles. On sens déjà les houblons qui sont bien présent et qui apporte ce côté résineux. Le côté poivré et l’explosion d’agrume se complete dans une bêle harmonie Elle est sèche en finale, ce qui la rend une bière de soif, parfaite pour cette saison. Un gout net et tranchant mais avec juste légère douceur que la blanche nous apporte. Une belle découverte. Une des meilleur micro au Qc selon moi.
