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.

Pours a hazy golden yellow. Bubbly. Aroma is lightly malt and floral. Taste is sweet with a biting bitterness that mixed with the sparkling carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(trade w/OLking) - White foamy head. Body is gold to light peach. Crystal clear. Aroma of apricot. Flavor kind of reminds me of a thermometer that’s been freshly cleaned with rubbing alcohol. Aftertaste like white wine grapes which has started to raisin. I’ve tried it. I won’t likely be trying it again unless it’s thrown in as an extra in a trade.

I love this beer! Floral aroma, great appearance, citrusy taste, and a slight alcohol burn. What more could you ask for on a hot summer day!?

[Bottle (650ml)] Pours a hazy bubbly copper-gold with a large semi-lasting foamy white head and some lacing. Aroma is sweet, fruity, floral and lightly hoppy along with some yeast and yes, rose hips. Nice flavour is lightly sugary sweet and yeasty along with some honey, light hops, fruit and a long tea-like bitter finish. Some alcohol but for the most part well hidden. Medium bodied. Pretty good beer.

daje (2704) - NORWAY - AUG 26, 2014
Bottle. Cloudy yellow body with a rather small white head. Aroma of spicy belgian yeast, apples, oranges and flowers. Taste is bittersweet, fruity hops, light peppery, herbs. Thick sweet fruity finish with bread and banana. Nice hoppy belgian.

DuffMan (7996) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle, shared with TylerDurden. Medium golden, not a lot of head generation. Lovely floral aroma, rosewater, cut flowers, sweet yeast. The palate fails to deliver on the aromatics, sweet candyish pale malts, doughy yeast, with a boozy finish that is coarse and edging toward hot. Not bad in smaller doses, but I struggled to finish even my half-bottle.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 24, 2014
Bottle, thank you Colin! Nice golden yellow with an intriguing haze. Lovely effervescent fruity aroma strong citrus, floral, wild berry - lovely stuff. Taste - medium soft and carbonated body. Quite sweet, some berry, and lots and lots of alcohol. Almost a bit cloying. Lots going on but does not deliver on promise of the aroma - I think the nuances of the rosehips are better served a few points lower in alcohol percentage. Damn enjoyable though.
