4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
750mL Bottle. Yellow-gold body with a frothy white head settling to a film leaving lots of blotchy lace. Intense resiny hops are the main feature in the aroma; citrus and floral notes. And flavor! Pale sweet malts shine through without imposing in any way lime the bouquet. Herbal hop aftertaste followed by a long smooth linger. Smooth and silky mouth feel.

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!

Pale golden straw pour with a thin white head. The aroma is great - bright lemon and orange/grapefruit citrus with s bit oflesn psle malt. Very fresh and fruity. No real problems here.It’s just a clean, fresh tasty APA.

Tap at C’est What. Hazy golden-orange pour. The aroma is odd. A bit of orange and juicy fruit/orange sherbet aroma. Light cat pee and a touch of kiwi. Interesting tropical fruit flavour. Moderate bitterness and a touch of soft lingering fruit flavour. Pretty interesting actually.

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.

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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 mL bottle. Hazy orange-gold with a medium, sticky, bright, white head. Aroma of fresh C-hops, with pine resin and a little sweet mandarine. The flavour is good because it’s a little different; hard to describe, but there is almost a hint of a Christoffel Nobel or Schneider Hopfen weisse or that sort of thing. Which makes me wonder about the flavour hops in this one. or maybe I’m just imagining things. Nice hop/malt balance. Not a lot of bitterness. Very drinkable.

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.
