4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from LCBO. Pale golden pour with a thick white head - a slight yeasty haze. The aroma is lovely. Softly bready notes with a touch of light apricot, pear and lemon citrus. There is a very slight muskiness on the aroma initially with a touch of light vanillla as well. Moussey palate with a little bit of wheaty spice and a touch of light kiwi/gooseberry. Bright and lovely with a touch of light bitterness. Hops are perceptible - adding a little bit of light citrus and some herbal character as well. I really enjoy the balance of malt character with some minty/spicy yeast character. Lovely brew.

750 cc from Capone’s and Craft Ale House. Pours turbid dark straw..pretty deep golden with 1-finger frothy white head and a lot of carbonation. Nose is floral yeasty spice, white pepper, limey citrus, noble hops. Tastes dry, floral, spicy, with hopcitrus, more dry floral fruity yeasty notes as it warms, and a lot of complexity.

Starts with pretty good fullness and biscuity malty sweetness with some floral hop notes and a drier herbal bitterness before a drier bittersweet finish. Pretty true to style and drinkable.
