2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
No retention and no lacing. Smells of lemon zest, orange sour fruits. Tastes of grapefruit, tart lemon and citrus. No aftertaste. Do not like.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
sample at mondial de la bière 2015 - mtl. hazy/cloudy pale yellow pour with a frothy and almost creamy white cap, good retention and lacing. lemon pie, fragrant yuzu, some rubber and umami-meaty disturbing molecules, awkward spices perhaps - cumin, cardamom; flowers, peels but also citrus juices, light on-the-spot acidity - citric and lactic. average-light carbonation, light body; nicely tart lemony finish. some disturbing elements but overall a nice sour cream-y topped lemon pie.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mondial 2015. Pours a slightly hazy golden with a small persistent white head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of citrusy yuzu, pleasing and inviting. Taste is really only lightly tart and features cooked cereals and yuzu. Body is medium, carbonation as well and mouthfeel is oddly a little sticky. Overall this was OK but far from what it could have been, in need of a major recipe tweak.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Really thick and light, little citrus. Like cream of wheat. Not to sharp, blunt in the flavor.

Mondial de la bière 2015 - Dorée, un col de mousse mince blanc. Nez sûrette et fruité. Goût fruité et l’acidité est pratiquement inexistante... Je suis plutôt déçu de ce côté! C’est bon quand même!

A golden ale with a thin white head. In aroma, sweet fruity malt with light cherry, lemon, citrus pulp, nice. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity malt with light lemony notes, light mineral notes, pleasant summer beer. Bottle at Mondial 2015.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slutfest! Pale straw yellow, very slight haze. Odd citrus fruit aroma, presumably Yuzu, very bold. Flavor is lightly of crackery malts. Fruity tropical flavor present throughout. Lingering tart citric flavor long after the finish. Faint wheat as well. Interesting.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft - Sweet citrus and some tropical fruit. Hazy gold with a decent white head. Sweet and light tropical fruits, light citrus and a light candy funk finish. Not much sourness and the Yuzu is a bit muted.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft. It was the cheapest pour out of 20 lines, so I imagine they go the keg on the cheap due to the age or that it wasn’t very popular to begin with. Either way, I had not had it so I bit. Sourish yogurt, lemon, old fruitiness, lightly tart. Odd full mouth and not a light refreshing highly carbed brew I was hoping. Also, don’t know how you can have an 8% berliner. Fail.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice citrus nose. Golden color from what I remember because it’s been a while. Good creamy mouthfeel with strong carbonation. Berliner Weiss is hinted here but with much more complexity. Some hops presence and a funky dry finish. Pleasantly surprised.
