3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Single can from Binny’s. Nice tropical fruit smell from pouring it into the glass. Closer in, I can find more of those traditionally piney northwestern hops. A clear gold color in the glass, and it pours with a finger of spongy foam. Malt is pretty light against the overwhelming force of this hoppy little cane toad. Hop bitterness almost pierces my tongue, but is till relaxing and almost indulgent. Definitely a great beer you’d never expect to find in a can.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Quite nice stuff. Bubbly and refreshing, initial aroma of strong citrus hops but the flavor of hops isn’t quite as prominent. Serving: Can

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A: Golden orange, slightly hazy almost clear, with a fizzy and foamy white head.
S: Smells great. Fantastic combination of Belgian yeast - kind of funky, slightly musty, lemon and some coriander - and hops - sweet grapefruit, mango, tangerine. Almost creates a ’bubble-gum’ sweetness, which is a terrible way of describing it because that would be horrible, but very unique.
T: Refreshing and crisp bitterness hit first with lemon and tarter-than-sweet grapefruit. Then a wash of Belgian spice, a tad bit of hay, and sweet tropical fruits. Finishes pretty dry
P: Light-medium body, noticeable but not obnoxious carbonation. Very refreshing and smooth.
O: Fantastic beer. So glad it’s in cans. Need to stock up.

12 oz. can. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. The aroma has juicy citrus, grapefruit, grass and some yeast. The flavor is citrus, light tropicals, grass, toasted malts, yeast with light Belgian character. Not bad for what it is.

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2013 Tasted from a 22oz. bottle (then later on tap at Revolution). Poured a beautifully clear, light golden orange with a white head that dissipated quickly. Good carbonation and a faint but pleasant aroma.

Poured from a 12-oz can, procured from Lizardville Rocky River. Clear light golden pour with a huge fluffy white head. Awesome aroma of citrus hops and mild yeast. Flavor is similar but the yeast comes through a little more and the citrus is slightly backed down. Lighter to medium palate. Solid.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 12 ounce can. Pours a translucent, lighter copper with a creamy white head of foam. Aroma is sweet with lots of citrus and sweet Belgian candi sugar. Taste is fruity sweet and a mild bitterness toward the finish.

500ml bottle shared by Brian. Medium bodied, very mellow and sessionable. Nice tropical tones, a mix of Simcoe or Summit or Nelson or something and Belgian yeast, really compement each other well and merge effortlessly. Very clean. Solid offering.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. The beer pours a clear gold with a medium to small head and aromas of slightly funky honey with a little grass. Flavor is decidedly sweet... lots of honey and a little funk and lots of spice. Mostly honey and spices. I’m not really in the mood for sugary beer right now and this is kind of cheesing me off... Not awful, but certainly not going to be a favorite.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can to taster. Looks solid; a transparent orange with white lacing. Smells hoppy and doughy with an average mouthfeel. A good example of the style.
