Sampled at the Great Canadian Beer Festival. Rich and boozy Belgian with funky yeast overtones and a bright, fruity hop character. Long, lasting bitterness. A potent sipping beer and a fine North American spin on an Old World favourite.

Bottle. Ian @ Brouwers. Grassy, medicinal, ivory, gummy, white pine. Huge American hop flavor gushing out of a Belgian sweet malts. Sugary sweetness. Pear. Hinterland but higher quality.

cstuartj (1011) - Washington, USA - AUG 14, 2013
On tap. Pours a cloudy gold with a big thick head, laces well. Nose is very spicy, yeast, pepper, alcohol. Taste is good but not fully balanced, citrus notes are for front, pepper, spicy and Belgian yeast jump in during the finish. Light slightly sweet finish. Pretty dang good.

CapFlu (4620) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 2, 2013
(22oz bottle) Puchased at Hillside Liquors. Pours a small white foam that settles to the center of the glass atop a light orange. Orange rind, pine resin. Very yummy. Very citrus hops and biting finish. Incredibly enjoyable.

300monsters (16) - victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 1, 2013
Poured from 650ml bottle, clear golden amber colour. Grapefruit and juicy, ripe peach on the nose. Mild grapefruit, ripe peach again and maybe a little orange peel to the taste, just enough carbonation to tickle the tongue. Perfect mouthfeel. It’s like a hoppy E.S.B. but with Belgian yeast. Very interesting, incredibly tasty, a good place for the hop head and the belgian lover to meet in the middle and share a good beer.

Golden amber with a small pale head. Aroma is honey, pineapple, hint of spruce. Slightly syrupy mouthfeel, bittersweet palate, lingering finish. Taste is apricot jam, honey, ruby grapefruit.

maekchu (2300) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUL 18, 2013
Draught at the Great Japan Beer Festival in Osaka (7/13/2013). Big funky nose, manure-level yeast and hopping. Great flavor movement throughout: tart-bitter / grapefruit in mid & final / finishes mildly sweet with little tracks of alcohol. Very good.

jkwood04 (4175) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 15, 2013
22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy amber/copper with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of floral and lightly citrusy hops, spicy yeast, some pale and caramel malts, and hints of fruits. Flavor the same with a nice blend of the hoppiness and Belgian attributes. Average texture. A good, hoppy, Belgian beer.

patricks110 (1783) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 8, 2013
A great beer overall. The pour has a glowing, beautiful reddish orange with a thin white head that lingers. The nose has a noted aromatic and floral dry hop with big yeast aromas and estery citrus. Beautiful tropical fruits are noted subtly on the palate with grapefruit and a hint of pineapple. Strong Belgian yeast and flavour with honey and a light toasted wheat malt. Beautiful fruits with a floral hop including a mild hop spice. Warm boozy finish. Just a nice strong Belgian brew.

Served at about 50F in a tulip. Pours a crystal clear amber with a small head and minimal lacing. Taste is spicy with a Belgian candy sugar taste. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
