3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 11, 2013 Darkish brown. Aroma is belgian sugars and mild yeast. Medium carbonation brings plenty of effervescence and good malt character. Light fruits linger at the tail end, especially orange and mandarine. Not big bodied like a pannepot, but very sessional.

Bottle pours a hazy red-brown with a retentive tan head, good lacing. Aromas of sweet malt, citrus, and cloves. Taste is light, Belgian yeast, blood orange, some nutty flavors and the slightest hint of hops on the finish.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
This pours a murky, medium brown color with a fizzy, beige head. The aroma is very Belgian smelling with lots of yeast. The taste is smooth, slightly sweet with just the right amount of spice. Rather simple yet it’s not too bold or too weak. Probably one of the best Canadian craft breweries that’s mainstream in the U.S.

Bottle. Pours a beautiful copper with reddish tints and a huge fluffy white head. Absolutely gorgeous. Aroma starts out with some orange and tangerine notes and finishes with yeast and some cola-like sweetness. Taste is very complex. Dark fruit and some nuttiness to start, followed by some sweetness. Finish is clove and pepper. Palate is very soft, maybe a touch to thin, but the delicate mouthfeel lends itself to the complexity. A truly wonderful beer.
