Boutip (5065) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 14, 2014
Bottle: Poured a light yellow color ale with some hazy white hue and a large foamy head with good retention. Aroma of light wheat malt with some tropical fruit hops is pleasant enough. Taste is also dominated by some wheat malt with light bubble gum notes and some mango and other tropical fruit notes originating from the hops. Body is full with good carbonation. Interesting experience and something I would like to have another try at some point in time.

Une bonne bière rafraichissante. Des aromes de houblons américains très présent. Le houblon est bien adoucit par le côté bière blanche belge et une texture juste assez consistente. C’est une finale sèche et en douceur avec les mêmes goûts de fruit tropicaux et d’épinettes. Je ne trippe pas sur les blanches, mais celles-là est bonne en tas!

Bouteille, 6.5%. Couleur jaune paille, mou sse blanche, un peu voilée. Arôme de fruits tropicaux et un peu de gomme de sapin. En bouche, belle texture, fruits jaunes, houblons, Finale ave une petite amertume, fruits et agrumes. Buvabilité incroyable. Excellente. v Pineapple groves and flower petals thrive within this White IPA’s summery profile, while coniferous hop bitterness slowly takes hold of the slender and bubbly palate. Further Personal Perceptions: -A gorgeous cumulus of foam covers the initially misty gold. Nice flocculation here, as the last glass is full of yeast while the first was nearly clear. -Effervescence and relative dryness make this beer instantly festive. -Drinkability is through the roof for a 6.5% brew. -Some green pears appear here and there. -The coniferous bitterness is lengthy yet balanced with the fruity perfume.

Jaune et dorée, très voilée, une superbe mousse blanche s’entête à rester. Elle dégage un bouquet de fruits tropicaux, gracieuseté des houblons, qui est très invitant. En bouche, elle est assez levurée, mais pas assez pour englober les saveurs d’ananas qui percent sans cesse le palais. Les houblons juteux prennent plus de place avec la chaleur, conférant un caractère encore plus fruité à la bière. Un bon apport en céréales vient balancer le tout.

Rastacouere (6153) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 5, 2014
Bottle released last week. Cloudy pale gold, spectacular rocky white head - abundant wheat and hops will do that to you. Tree and exotic fruits capture your attention from the start line, building up a juicy flavour profile with tuoches of earth occasionally sneaking in. At this hop level, the wheat is almost irrelevant, albeit it may very well be emphasizing the drinkability to another level. Very clean fermentation. Hard to decipher any esters amidst the potent aromatic hops, but there certainly is a lot of fruity flavours with a one way ticket to your brain. The bitterness climbs sip after sip; I had an initial feeling that it was actually kept in check, but it is definitely quite bitter in the end, just that there are plenty of aromas to match, so it does not feel one-dimensional nor a useless slap in the face. While it may not be mind-bending like the very top offerings from TDD, it is another extremely high quality beverage here, and the high drinkability make it all see so easy. Neat clean palate, cleasing engaging carbonation, relatively lean while feeling complete. Great job.

manuelMTL (224) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 4, 2014
600 ml bottle in tulip glass. Color is cloudy golden yellow with a pale, white frothy head. Aromas are grapefruit, lichee, conifers with a touch of grains and Belgian yeast. Flavours are mainly tropical fruits. Citrus, grapefruit, mango, bonbon. A resinous hoppy aftertaste. Belgian yeast notes and grains are there but stay in the background. Quite high carbonation. Highly quaffable and drinkable!

Jaune paille, trouble et bien mousseuse. C’est invitant. Le nez est franc, citronné et chargés de houblons frais. On flaire une pointe d’acidité. En bouche, il n’est plus trop question d’acidité, mais bien de fruits tropicaux étalés sur un lit de blé. C’est très goûteux, mais sans réelle lourdeur. À conseiller aux gens qui apprécient la Hopfenweisse des Trois Mousquetaires.

electrotype (336) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 4, 2014
Arôme rempli de houblons fruités. Une touche de levure se laisse aussi sentir. La bière est belle, la mousse tient le coup, c’est pétillant sans exploser de partout. En bouche, c’est fruité là aussi. La bière est amère, sans tomber dans l’excès, elle se boit très bien. Bon travail!

Minderbinder (2402) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 2, 2014
Bottle 600ml. Pours slightly hazy blond with medium beige head. Intense lacing. Aroma is of citrus, tropical fruits. Taste is of citrus, tropical fruits, strong bitterness, resin, slight phenols? Palate: Light-medium body. Medium carbonation. Overall: Pretty good. Pretty bitter. Lots of resin/vegetal stuff.
