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.

shrubber85 (8787) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 25, 2013
Bottle. Orange/peach malt and orange peel aroma. Hazy golden yellow with small head. Sweet citrusy malt and moderately bitter orange peel flavor. Very nice - more like an I2PA though.

vyvvy (4583) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAY 17, 2015
Pours golden / yellow with some floaties and a small white head. The aroma has citrus hops that are heavy on grapefruit and orange. There is also some stone fruit, smooth abbey-esque yeast, pale malt, mild caramel and hints of floral aspects. It has a medium rough body with some sharp carbonation. The taste starts with crackery dough, bright citrus, grapefruit zest, spice and mild Belgian yeast. The finish is dry and hoppy. Quite tasty.

yourilevesque (235) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 27, 2015
Bière blonde aux parfums très sucrés de litchis, d’eau de rose de baklava aux pistaches et d’alcool. Le nez n’est pas déplaisant mais beaucoup trop chargé de sucre à mon goût personnel. La mousse se dissipe rapidement laissant à vif un liquide visqueux, lourd. En bouche, le sucre est très présent et le parfum d’eau de rose encore plus puissant, laissant une texture huileuse sur mon palais encombré de miel et de grains rappelant le pain doré du petit déjeuner. Pau mauvaise mais lourde, trop lourde à mon goût personnel.

TheKeywork (50) - Sudbury, Ontario, CANADA - APR 25, 2015
Pours a sparkly gold. First whiff is pineapple and mango. Taste is more tropical with a bitter hop finish. A light burn let's the alcohol shine through. A effervescent beer good for a hot day. Would definitely try this again.

jgb9348 (5022) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 13, 2015
Crisp, very hazy golden and light copper coloured body with a very thin, single centimetre tall pure white head. Aroma of alcohol, belgian yeast, light spices, some grass and hay and a touch of curacao and fruit sweetness. Full-bodied; Dense yeastie flavour with hints of biscuits and bread, some subtle grass and floral notes, a little sugars from apricots and curacao and a nice rich malt note on the end with a complex flavour. Aftertaste is relatively complex with most of the changes coming during the yeast portion and only a touch of sugars making it through the end, with the large alcohol presence. Overall, a nice and robust beer with a complex flavour profile and some nice tastes along the way, but not amazing and not worth doing stupid things for. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Total Wine in Chantilly, Virginia on 31-January-2015 for US$7,49 sampled at home in Washington on 12-April-2015.
