Beershine (5201) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Draft at brewpub. Hazy orange. Ripe oranges and papaya in the fruity aroma. Light, fruity, and juicy. The house yeast character is so much fun! Firm dry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at the brewpub. Aha! Finally a chance to rate this one. Slightly hazy light gold pour with a lot of frothy white foam, some lacing. Aroma is citrusy, lots of belgian yeast as well. Reminds me somewhat of highly hopped american saisons. Taste is a bit fruitier, sweet grain and spicy yeast flavors dominate throughout this heavily carbonated beer. Alcohol is not at all apparent and this makes for an easily drinkable belgian ale.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2007
Pours a cloudy golden color with orange highlights and a thin white head. Good aroma and flavor of fruits and cinnamon, the spice is done just right, not too much but enough to smell and taste. The body is medium to full with a creamy texture and moderate carbonation. Interesting.

Lubiere (9745) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 10, 2006
Light hazy golden ale with a thick creamy white head. Light aroma of cloves and curacao. In mouth, a creamy malt, sweet, with more bananas and cloved, like a wit. Creamy mouthfeel. medium bodied. A very nice wit (if it was a wit...). On tap at bar, Sept. 3 2006. Rating 2400.

MartinT (7677) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 6, 2006
Any first impressions?
-A ring of foam surrounds the hazy orange.
-Fluttering spices aim to seduce the nose, full of orange zest, coriander, cinnamon, cloves, and rising bread.
-Once tasted, loads of spices are laid onto thin bread crumbs.
-Active, prickly carbonation thrives in a well-fed, drinkable mouthfeel.

What if you dig deeper?
-The aftertaste is full of desserty spices, mostly cloves.
-The veiled hop support was well chosen in accordance with the flavor profile.
-There may be too much spice apport for my tastes, but this remains ably brewed, and will please spice lovers (my wife absolutely loved it).

On tap at the brewpub.
