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.

Hazy golden with a white creamy head. Floral aroma,tropical fruit, light sweetness from the malt, cereal and some alcohol. Mainly sweet in the beginning with a bitter aftertaste. Slick brew, lively carbonation with a little something harsh in the aftertaste.

Pours a bright lemony yellow. Medium white head. Aromas of citrus, yeast and floral highlights. Light crisp palate, with flavours of citrus, with the addition of sweet malts. Hints of sugar in there as well. A fairly sweet beer. I’d imagine this would go down scarily easily (it’s 9% abv) on a hot summer day. Pretty drinkable in the middle of winter too, judging by how easily I made it disappear.

Pours hazy gold with a thin white head. Fruit, yeast and peppery spice but somehow now quite as good as that sounds.

Metalchopz (2666) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 9, 2015
Hazy golden colour brew with a white creamy head, good retention and lots of lacing. Fruity grain aromas with some oranges, light tropical fruits and very mild grass. Very well-hidden alcohol, so smooth. Flavours of mildly sweet fruits with light sugars. The cereal grains are really in the background and some nice mild bitterness is left in the finish. A very nice refreshing strong ale. Very well-balanced. 9.0 ABV. Really ??

Eructoblaster (3418) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 5, 2015
Bottle - 660ml. Cloudy golden body with a thin, fading white foamy head. Very enjoyable hoppy aroma with mango, orange, cherry, and yeasty hints. Alcohol is very well hidden. Its fresh, very well balanced hoppy taste carries malty, citrusy, herbal, and honeyish notes. Ends with a sharp bitter/yeasty finish. Very good.

Honey gold with foamy white head. Perfumey nose. Taste- Belgian malt, floral and fruity with a dry, champagne-like mouthfeel. Some warming alcohol as we'll. Nice Imperial Belgian Ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TomTron (431) - Aiken, South Carolina, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Pours a cloudy yellow with not much head. Faint fruity aromas but fairly weak. Flavor has a decent malty base with some fruitiness that permeates throughout as well as some grapefruit and yeast. The alcohol is also masked very well and I don’t get much of a warming sensation after it goes down. Probably would warrant a higher score from me, but the sweetness is just a tad too much. Solid offering though.
