Bottle from the LCBO. Slightly hazy pale orange gold with a huge billowy white head that fades very slowly and leaves a lot of lace. Nose is lots of pineapple and tropical fruit with notes of pine, yeast, honey and some spice. Light sweet honey and caramel base supports the dominant citrus and tropical fruit bitterness. Slight spice is present but fainter than in the nose. Medium slick body with average carbonation and a long dry finish. Lots of character and interesting levels.

Nice blond with white fluffy head, aka classically handsome. (Just like me!) Nice hoppy nose of resin, pine and tropical fruits. Nice mouthful of flavours, tropical fruits, hops in the pine, fruit, resins and a little bittering, hay malts. It’s delicious. (Just like me!) Different, but another great choice for the backyard or dock this summer. (Just like me!) The way it’s going for great quaffable beers this spring, I’m going to be very, very drunk anytime I’m at the cottage or backyard. (Hooray!)

Metalchopz (2605) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 4, 2015
Found at the LCBO under the name "The Four Surfers of the Apocalpso". Pours an unfiltered golden-yellow colour with lots of particles. Big frothy white cap, great retention and thick patchy foam lace. Fresh grassy nose balanced with a little sweetness from pineapples and other fruits. The mouthfeel is slightly dry with a little bitterness in the finish, but grassy tart lingers on the tongue. Flavours blended between the grassy hops and light tropical fruits. Goes down nicely as not a hopbomb, but for those who prefer more on the fruity side of IPAs. As the description goes, a Belgian Witbier mixed with an IPA. Nice !

DerWeg (1562) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2015
Bottle was clear with globby yeast which I shook into it a day before, let it settle. Pours slightly hazy with a crisp fruity aroma, summer meadow. Taste is very fresh and favors some pale fruit sweetness with a bit of sour. Hey it’s not bad really, sort of a wheat ale and IPA hybrid, with steely hops and a round flavor profile.

Une belle White IPA gourmande et houblonnée dans la lignée de la libertine de la Jurassic brewery ou de la gumbalhead de Threefloyd!

Tap at Bellwoods Brewery... Gorgeous pour! Extremely cloudy, a suspension, pure white head, lasts a long time. Golden. Interesting flavour, full bodied, lots of hop bitterness with a wheat aftertaste and a tongue tickling palate. Kind of weird, definitely Belgian inspired.

750ml bottle from Halles St-Jean. Aroma: citrus punch, pineapples. Taste and palate: hazy pale almost golden, medium white head, some hops in suspension. Nice lacing. Taste and palate: light body, nice orange in mouth, medium finish. Overall: so refreshing, perfect for this sunny day. 3rd time I had the pleasure to taste this beer and had difficulty to find it again. Took a year to get my hands on it again and was worth it. As good as my souvenirs.
