Boutip (4775) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 19, 2012
Bottle: Poured a cloudy orangey color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light ginger notes with some coriander notes also perceptible. Taste is a mix between some light notes of wheat with some coriander and ginger notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Not bad but really nothing to write home about either.

Studentofbrrs (90) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 16, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2012 pale in color with a cloudy tinge to it. has a soft spicy smell to it with a hint of citrus. You can taste the cinnamon and nutmeg pretty clearly, almost leaves a dry feeling on the tongue, it has a citrus finish. It goes down smooth and when poured from a bottle it produces a light fizzy head that disappears quickly.
