4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured this with a decent off-white, foamy head and a little lace. Color is a slightly hazy, medium amber. Aroma is hop, malt, fruit. Flavor is like nose, hints of the gin. sweet is in front, followed by a hint of tang. body/carbonation are good. Finish is like flavor, not that long and only a suggestion of the power. Decent stuff; I’d have more.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

(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.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
