Bottle [750ml]. Pours a hazy, bubbly yellow-gold with an average size semi-lasting frothy white head and a good amount of lacing on the glass. Nice aroma of grain, citrus hops, fruit and herbs. Flavour of citrus hops, fruit, herbs and an average bitter finish. A touch watery but it’s quite tasty. Average bodied. Really enjoyable and easy to drink.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Smells delicious and very hoppy. Light malt, tropical fruit and biscuit. Very light, almost like peach juice, with a foamy but somewhat quickly-dissipating head. Spicy hops upfront, with a bit of the tropical fruit flavors, a bit of pine in the middle and a fairly indistinct finish. Somewhat watery. Nice fresh hoppy flavor and super drinkable but the super light body and lack of a finish hold it back a bit in my eyes. Average carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours light coloured gold with average froth head that laces glass well. Aroma from bottle is outstanding floral citrus zest. Not much of any bitterness in taste though, smooth, a tiny bit of malt, or sweetness. Too drinkeable! (thats a good thing)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 mL bottle. Pours a pale golden with a thick foamy head of white. Nose is peach, mango, subtle pine and cedar. Crisp, with cracker like malt notes and a fruity finish. Moderate body and carbonation with a slightly bitter finish. Designed to showcase hop character. Quite enjoyed this, very sessionable.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750mL bottle from LCBO. Pours clear gold with a thin white head. Lovel peach and strawberry aroma. Taste is fairly light and delicate, with refreshing peach, strawberry, and kiwi. Sweet, but not too sweet; pretty well-balanced. A nice beer; these Bertwell hops are pretty nice.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750mo bottle from the lcbo. Outstanding aroma of limes, citrus, and touches of honey. The flavor is more citrus, sweet, soft mouthfeel, light bitterness. A delicate beer, big aromas and flavors of citrus, some subtle grass, and a little pine. Quite impressive, great stuff!
