Makes a nice change in taste from the regular íAngloí beers that are ubiquitous in this neck of the woods. Probably a little too strong for those not used to the Belgian styles - but thatís not something Iíll hold against it.

Look, he said in a louder voice, this isnít all that and a bag of chips, but what is is is a beer that smells like a Belgium beer, looks like one, and drinks like on, a bit of sourness but a background of malts. So what to make of it, It rounds out the Tripel and Dubbel that they have, and might make a great domestic beer of they could get away with the underlying sourness. I really would go again, except their Dubbel and Trippel are better, a lot.

Pale clear golden. White head lasts forever. Fruity nose with a lot of bready doughy notes. Medium body. Fruity palate with a bitter finish.

kiwianer (3339) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 1, 2014
The head is good, body blond. It smells fruity, aromatic, hoppy, malty, yeasty. The taste is fruity, hopparomatic, malty, fruity, bit alcoholic, creamy, intensive, delicious!

bulldogops (1048) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 10, 2013
Bottle #5 from the Tuatara Mix 6 Pack. Not sure about dates on these as no date info on bottles or pack, but the two yeasty beers in this pack are pooched. No haziness, no dominant yeast character, just bubbly, apply tasting beers. This one survived a little better than the hefe, probably because of the abv, but still nothing exciting. Will have to rerate fresher stuff.

Just woke up. Dammit. Gotta do a light speed review. Smelled okish but note its overly fruity and is missi g the spice. The Belg side exists in a dull state. This has qualities of a belg ale and qualities of a buch of other stuff just tossed in. Sure it works but so what. Lemon orange weak pepper, yeast, meh. Just a mixed up beer. Not a bad beer but one that doesnít stick to a style well.

A mature beer with a strong, pleasant, lingering palate. Whisky notes hint at the mid strength of this ale. I enjoy the subtle spicy taste and citrus flavours. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at Palate, Hamilton
Golden with Belgian esters on the nose. Dry and fairly hot with higher alcohols on the nose and mouth. Lively carbonation. Not particularly clever.

andrewturba (970) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 12, 2012
Pours a clear golden yellow with small white head that amounts to a light white cover. Aromas of spice and sweet fruit. Flavours consist of spice, citrus bitterness, some maltiness and a touch of booze.

CapFlu (4524) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 1, 2012
(330ml bottle) Purchased as part of a mixed Tuatara 6-pack for $22 at Cook Street Liquors. Quick dissipating white frothy head atop a clear amber body. Good yeast a citrus yet there is an odd milkiness throught the palate. Average.
