COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Spring forward with this refreshing seasonal ale. Notes of toasted malt up front with a bright and crisp Northwest hop finish. It’s a session beer that everyone can enjoy.

6% session beer, lol. Sure, if you’re a sumo. Golden-bronze colour. Toasty malt with a touch of apple. Berryish character, splash of bitterness and then there’s a dry, hoppy finish. Ok brew.

Pours a light copper color with a full floral bouquet of aroma. Taste is light, good amount of spruce, toasted malt, with a hop finish. Mild bitterness at the end of every swallow. Good complexity and very easy drinking, a nice seasonal beer that would be an everyday drinker during the summer.

Firm, dry and very refreshing. The bitterness is far from over the top but it cuts an excellent line through the palate with the dry herbal notes. Good season beer.

Bottle. Pours a mostly clear dark copper color with a moderate off-white head on it. Nose is pretty light to me, and I only get some grassiness coming off it. Taste is actually fairly bitter, but has a nice bit of toasting coming through on it. Pretty decent drink.

From bottle. Golden color with creamy white head. Aroma is sweet citrus, caramel malt, and a touch of bitter pine. Taste is tart grapefruit, caramel malt, pine, and grass. Fairly well balanced malt and hops, but just a hint too much grassy bitterness in the finish.

onceblind (3933) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 3, 2014
Clear golden under a generous foamy off-white head. Big nose of springtime flowers and greasy leafy lupulin hops and a touch of lemon zest. Big taste of toasted biscuit and earthy leafy hops, a bit of bitter resin, and a finish of cracker. Not shabby, just a bit more earthy than I like.

Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
10oz

Deep blond color, hazy, with creamy head. Some malt and hop aroma, a bit fruity, but lighter than expected. The mouthfeel is rather dry; the malt flavor has a grass and hay accent, some toffee; strong bitterness, with a lot of hop resins, but also a vegetables character; long and strong final.
Ok beer, but below expectations too much vegetable presence in the final.
