3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The style they claim this to be is wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy off. I am not sure what passes for an IPA in the Belgian yeast heavy Province of Quebec but my stars this is not an IPA nor a DIPA. It pours a hazy golden straw colour with a thin, off-white head. Cheesy, floral funk wafts up as well as fermented fruitcake and wood smoke and wheat. Taste is wheat, raisins, orange and coriander with mild citrus hops. This medium thin bodied beer has a bitter finish and the taste masks the alcohol quite well.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy golden color with storming glass clinging activity. Frothy beige 3 finger head, lasting 10-15 minutes, creaming strong lacing. Flavors of lemony citrus and orange, roasted sweet grains, clove, coriander, caramel, yeast, floral and herbal spices. Nice bread feel with a high degree of sweetness, while very sharp and zesty. Smooth light body with champagne like carbonation. Strong finish of moderate length, ending with a crispy citrus feel, grassy noble spices, and faint banana yeast. Overall this is a very good quality craft. Tasty fruity flavors, pleasant malty feel and fresh grass. Well balanced and intensified, very fresh. A little strong on the spices, but calms down as it warms up.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This one pours a pretty sizeable amount of head, very foamy and thick bubbles. Has a deep coppery appearance. Aromas are heavy on hops and citrus types. Flavours are strongly hop influenced but also well balanced with barley malts and yeast is quite apparent in finish. Mostly citrus and some floral hop flavours. Pretty smooth mouthfeel. Some bitterness on the palate but to be expected and quite welcome. really good stuff for the price and quantity.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle. Pours a cloudy rose-tinged gold with a two finger off-white head. On the nose, almost the entire spectrum of the citrus family. Lemon zest, orange peel, grapefruit with yeast, light caramel, mineral notes, and a faint resinous note. Lightly sweet with soapy hop notes, grapefruit, light caramel, and mineral notes into Belgian yeast, more mineral notes, medium bitterness and more citrus, with some citrus pith in the finish. It’s very similar to Schneider Weisse’s Hopfenweisse, and I very much mean that as a compliment. Plus, it was incredibly well priced considering it was a 750ml bottle. I would 100% buy it again.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A frothy off-white head on an orange/grapefruit juice coloured body. The nose pops with fresh citrus, a hint of fruit rind and soft malt. This is a refreshing beer with lovely fruity hop flavours - lemon, melon, and grapefruit leading the charge. As others have noted, there is Belgian yeast and a touch of banana setting off the hoppy tastes. Hints of spice and pepper touch up the taste profile as well. Very nice!
