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.

jksipa (416) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2013
750ml bottle from the LCBO. Pours a hazy very pale orange with a generous white head and lots of lacing. Nose is fresh cut grass, hay and citrus with a layer of honey in the background. Lots of hops bitterness through the front and middle but smoothed out by a peaches and honey sweetness. The finish could use some more punch. The body is light and slick with average carbonation. Very easy drinking.

Reimer96 (1332) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 4, 2013
Thanks to cfrancis for this one. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a small white head and no lace. Aroma of citrus, steamed veggies, chlorophyll, fresh cut grass and light sweet malts. Taste is veggies, tropic fruit, fresh cut grass, caramel maltiness and a nice smooth smooth bitterness throughout. Medium carbonation gives and a medium body give this beer a very easy to drink feel.

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)

Pours a murky honey colour with a huge billowy head. Aroma notes include roasted malts, crackers, bread, citrus and pine hops. Tasting notes include delicious pine hops, notes of mango, graham crackers, and a slightly bitter finish. Supurb!!

Bière blonde tirant sur l’orangé, avec un petit film de mousse ; le nez est très sapiné, mais fruité en même temps. La bouche est vraiment davantage du côté fruits, avec de l’abricot et des pêches, un brin d’orange venant clôturer le tout. Une fine amertume vient conclure la session. Buvabilité considérablement haute. Une excellente pale ale, simple, qui donne effectivement une impression de fraîcheur. Un peu timide, par contre.
