4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
It has a beautiful red/ orange amber color with a hazy body. Tiny bubbles form a thick foamy head that has a light tan color. An inviting aroma of sweet floral orange and spices mingle with doughy yeast and malts. On the tongue there is a complex sweet, fruity and spicy character with caramel malts and doughy yeast mixing with dark cherries, spices and orange peel. Hops add some light bitterness and dryness to the finish. The palate is full bodied with just the right amount of carbonation. It is smooth and very drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy amber/copper pour, off white head. Aroma of yeast, spice, and fruit. Slight orangey fruity taste, medium body. Aggressive carbonation seemed to temper a malty base. Slight bitter that was quickly overcome with toasty bread like finish. Could not detect coriander which was fine. Nice brew, unremarkable. Would I drink again? Yes. Would I order again? maybe.

Took a few sips to get a good feel for it. Very smooth and fruity. Not over powering. Loved the lack of an aftertaste

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is a fruity esters with strawberries oranges and pears. Appearance is slightly cloudy not chunked and amber in color with an medium off-white persistent head where style dictates quickly fading head and clear beer. Flavor is slightly fruity with some very subtle hops showing through. This Belgian Amber or pale ale is very balanced per style with a very light toasty malt. Finnish is a little dry but I don't sense much hop. Mouth feel is medium bodied with medium-high carbonation. Carbonation purse style should be moderate so this carbonation is a bit too high.

Had to cart this fella across the boarder, thanks LCBO. Ommegang send more beers up here.
Coriander, grains of paradise, orange peel? Interesting ingredients, much more typical of a Belgian wheat.Pours a nice amber with a finger (pointed right at you LCBO) of slightly off-white fluffy head. Spicy nose, with that coriander showing up, cloves, a little bubble gum. Mmmm good. Soft malts, coriander, a little bitterness, smooth spiciness. Overall a good brew.

Toasted amber malts that compliment the earthy, spiced yeast profile. The malts add more depth and complexity and keep it from being overly chalky.
