Bottle, shared with TylerDurden. Cloudy light orange-gold with a very thick white head. Bright citrus and tropical fruit nose. Lively palate, lightly sweet malts and quenching tropical fruit hop character, leaning heavily toward citrus and fresh pineapple. Moderately bitter finish. Very nice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the LCBO. Turbid yellow-orange with a small white head. Aroma of pineapple, citrus, apricot, hint of pine, light honey biscuit. Flavour is big a fruity, with a lot of pineapple, some sweet orange, light peach hints, citrus peel finish. Medium-light body with a good level of carbonation. A very nice, fruity, hop-forward pale ale - just not sure if it was worth $4.60 for a 330 ml bottle given that I can find a few equally good local pale ales for a fair bit less.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from the lcbo. Hazy yellow pour, with a sticky white head. Aroma is super juicy citrus. Lots of lemon, and orange zest, with juicy lemon drop candies, pineapple. Mouth feel is slightly creamy, and the carb is spot on. The finish is low on bitterness, with just another lovely flavor wallop of citrus zest, and various citrus juices. A beautiful pale ale.

Bottle from LCBO. Aroma of swaety funky citrusy American hops. Delicate juicy fruit with very little malt and a bitterness that lasts the whole way through. Extra dry fonish. Tasty.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 mL bottle. Pours hazy honey with a nice white head of foam that lingers. Big pineapple nose, lychee, passionfruit, herbal coriander, a touch of grainy malt. Fruity sweet seeming, but certainly dry with a nicely bittered finish. Light body and painfully high carbonation (bad bottle?). Aroma reminds me of Nickelbrook Naughty Neighbour

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
23.10.2014, 0,33l bottle @ home:
Big slightly fizzy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly grassy, lawn, soil, moss, leafs, hops, hay, weeds, light malts, bark. Taste is slightly harsh grassy, soil, lawn, bark, old leafs, harsh hops, wood, light malts, minerals. Longlasting bitterness, slightly dry harsh mouthfeel. Fair enough.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A standard Belgium 330 bottle. And I suspect, though our Canadian label doesn’t say 2013 but does have the same gal, that what we have at the LCBO is not the Mikkeller K:rlek Forår/Sommer or the Winter 2014, which has passion fruit, but this one with pineapple. I’ll move this over if I’m proved wrong. Pours a golden orange as murky as the logic behind the benefit of having a government-run monopoly in control of all the beer in the province. A finger of slightly off-white head. Smells of hay malts, honey and citrus hops. The taste is grassy malts and lots of citrus/tropical fruit with hops. I’m getting clementines, pineapple, orange, and the hops leans towards citrus too. The aftertaste is bitter and a little acidic. A little like orange pith (the white stuff on the orange). Overall a good beer. Different. I like it but not blown away.
