COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We rely on age-old tools in the brewery despite being surrounded by high technology. As a sort of compass, we use the six pointed brewer’s star to help navigate uncharted brews. The cardinal points of water, malt, grain, yeast, hops and a brewer make the baseline. From there anything goes. Sometimes the journey is as important as the destination.

You’ll notice a slight bitterness in Compass derived from our use of rose hips accentuated by high effervescence. Drink it cold from a fluted or tulip glass. And by all means, avoid sea serpents.

On tap September 28, 2013 at ABR. Clear yellow pour. Floral and hoppy aroma and taste. I usually like ST offerings, but no so much with this one.

Bottle from mane liquor. Pours a hazy straw with white fluffy head. Very lively carbonation in this one! Nose is heavy on lemon, other citrus, flowery notes and a slight rose smell from the rose hips. Smells interesting. Taste is sweet, quite light for 9% and fizzy. Also has a weird tang to it, almost tastes like a alcoholic sparkling mineral water. Never had a beer like this before but works pretty well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fresh bottle from Premier Gourmet. Better than expected, the rose hips added a very drinkable tanginess to the hops. A brunch beer.

Ron (3281) - Rochester, New York, USA - SEP 28, 2013
Bottle. Lots of coriander spice in aroma and flavor. Very low head and retention. High clarity, but not brilliant. Pale golden color. Citrus pear hops, bready malt, and slight yeast spice in aroma. High bitterness. Alcohol is well hidden and its warming.

commonshawn (808) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Tap. 10oz. Gold color. Citrus floral. Effervescent mouthfeel. Sharp, tart bite. Like your sipping prosecco. Lively flavor. Very unique beer that sparkles in more ways than one.

Spab (3057) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 22, 2013
650 ml bottle courtesy of MK. Pours a murky dull golden colour with lots of floaties and smallish white head. Aroma is lots of flowers, lemon and straw. Flavour is flowers, lemon zest, other fruit, straw and some spice. Moderate bitterness in finish. Pleasant.

maneliquor (3480) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 21, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Hazy yellow pour with a small, bubbly white head. Nose is full of flowery roses and lemon. Barely a hint of a malt base in this one. Sweet and citric with an odd, almost savoury, rose note. Works ok. Carbonation is a little high and muddling. Not too bad

DialSquare (3799) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 21, 2013
Tap Proof. Citrus and light grass. Slight candy vibe. Don’t taste the belgian much. Bready, lemon, floral. Comes off a little flat. 6.6

BrewDad (5274) - Olympia, Washington, USA - SEP 21, 2013
Golden brown in color, hazy with a thin head. Nice Belgian yeast aroma and good malt backing. Lots of spice and good amounts of alcohol come through.

MadIndian (2704) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 18, 2013
Bottle. Definite notes of citrus, bread and belgian spices. Flavor was smooth and enjoyable. The alcohol was present but not overpowering. Nice Job.
