3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(750ml bottle) Purchased at Cook Street Liquor Store in Victoria for around $9. Pours a very large almond-coloured head atop an orange body. Nose is very testy amongst the strong hops. Nice take but far cry from the APA style; usually has higher ABV too. Very enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Drank a small bottle of this while barbecuing up some pork and it was pretty good. There isn’t a hell of a lot going on, but no hop bomb either. Just subtle perfume essence at the aftertaste. Decent lacing, pours amber clear. Small bottle from Peluso.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (375 ml). Clear golden/orange with a medium off-white head and some lacing. Aroma of citrus, malt and herbal hops. Taste is earthy with citrus and malt. Sticky herbal bitterness. I don’t like these earthy/herbal APA... I prefer citrus bombs.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I have loved every beer from Les Trois. Pours a bright ruby red orange body with a two finger yellowish head. The nose is sweet and caramelly with a hint of toffee and grainy notes. Odd musty aroma...not awful. Light citrus hop aromas. The flavor has lemon and grapefruit hoppiness, but not too bitter. Sweet and caramel malts. Overall, well balanced and tasty.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours deep orange, slightly hazed with a generous white foamy cap. The nose is simple, but enjoyable. Fresh floral hops and bready malts with apple and cookie dough. The taste is decidedly fresh green hops, nice caramel and bready malts balance the floral bitterness. Finishes bitter, with a long lived lingering aftertaste of hops and bread crust. Simple, but well made and enjoyable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled sample. Pale orange in colour with strong carbonation. Aromas are of floral perfume, pale malt, and pine sap. Flavours are kind of earthy hop forward with a kind of wild berries, leaves, and twigs thing going on. Some citrus and floral notes come to the fore later, with a pale malt and grain husk element on the finish. Solid bitterness. Clearly a bit rustic, in a farmhouse sort of way. Not bad, but not really my thing for this style of beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, shared with my brother-in-law. Deep burnt-orange colour, hazy, with a lively tan finely bubbled head. Aroma is, broadly speaking, floral and spicy. More specifically, there are notes suggestive of rosehips, strawberry, ginger, and burnt sugar. Flavour is sweet, with fruity caramel driving the palate, and soft floral and spicy elements adding complexity. Some fruit in here too, but definitely not citrus in my mind.... really tough for me to pin this one down. Fairly low bitterness. Amazingly complex, but not something I would categorize as an APA-- I don’t care what you call it, I loved it.
