Aroma is citrus and spice and tastes of more citrus and some tropical fruit with floral notes. Nice creamy texture. Excellent beer.

Loads of tropical fruit, yeast, and some solid citrusy hops, a gorgeous aroma. Softer the expected mouth feel and a slightly soft carb. The finish is medium bitter, quite yeasty as it warms with a solid chewy malt bill. Great stuff..... Dangerously drinkable for 9%.

Pours a cloudy gold with a small white top. Aroma is citrus and floral hops. Taste is a great balance of citrus/floral hops, yeasty chewiness and cereal/honey malts. Solid beer.

At 3rd Ottawa Beerfest, primed with cream soda, cask. Hazy bright yellow with an off white head. Smooth and full citrus hops with a light cream soda hazy aroma, lemon rind, grapefruit, very dry, quite bitter, mild carbonation, full body and delicious. These guys are making some great beer.

Pours a medium straw colour with moderate white head and fairly light carbonation On the nose it is light, with only a hint of Belgian wheat, some sweet biscuits, some cat pee, and a faint hint of caramel malt. Maybe even a smidgen of vinegar. On the palate, it is a little on the dry side, yet with a leaning towards light caramel flavour wise. You can taste the booze too, which prompted me to check the label and it is indeed 9%abv. Overall this is a conflicted beer that has no idea what it wants to be. Definitely stuck between styles. Didn’t hate it, but there are so many better beers on the market, I’d never purchase it again.

HopsandBolts (165) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 31, 2014
Appearance: Pours a clear golden colour with minimal white head that vanishes quickly. Aromas: The first thing you get is this wonderful aroma of tropical fruits. Then pine starts to come through and then guava, pineapple and apricot. Flavours: Pine, hops, guava, apricot, orange peel. Mouthfeel: Smooth with high carbonation. Overall: A nice well balanced Belgian ale with alcohol that is surprisingly subdued for such a high abv.

650mL bottle, sent from wilco (thanks a lot, Mike), pours a cloudy golden blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings juicy citrus and piney hops, some residual sugars, and a crackery malt backbone. Flavour is identical, with a nice crackery malt backing, paving way for the dry piney and citrus hop forward quality. Nice and dry, with just enough juicy sweetness. Very nice stuff.

Bottle. Terrific frothy white head atop a hazy yellow straw body. Aroma is fruity, mainly tropical, with lots of Belgian yeast as well. Taste is sweet malt, decent amount of spice and some other yeasty flavors. Overall i really enjoyed this one.

Cask at the Ottawa Beerfest. Primed with cream soda. A glowing slightly milky pour with a wonderful hoppy and cream soda aroma. Full bodied and smooth. The taste is bitter pine with Belgian hints, cream soda and a solid malt backbone.
