J’étais très curieux de gouter cette bière... Mais, j’aurais du m’en douter, j’ai été déçu! Il y a certains arômes et saveurs intéressants, mais elle est trop sucrée, ça gache l’expérience. On a aussi l’impression de notes "artificielles"... Je ne suis pas du tout convaincu.

AleRider78 (1453) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2017
Pours a thin amount of head and has an amber coppery appearance. Thick lacing. Hoppy aromas immediately noticeable. Mild sweet caramel aromas as well. Nice citrus hops and sweet malt flavours. Some notes of pomegranate and dark fruits. Light mouthfeel. Average carbonation. Somewhat of a rusty like hop finish. Not too bad.

HogTownHarry (7065) - Toronto (Harbourfront), CANADA - NOV 27, 2016
Can. Clear surprisingly deep amber, quick-diminishing fizzy off-white head. Aroma is toffeeish, lightly vegetal and vaguely herbal bitter. Taste is pretty thin and dondescript; a little vegetal, papery ... mostly just dull rather than bad. Thin, slick, still, a hint of harshness in the finish. Meh. Why do they bother?

Franckg (1856) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 7, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2016 Arômes de citron, malt légèrement caramélisé, un peu de pamplemousse et légères traces de Galaxy par son côté fruits sucrés (mangue et fruit de la passion) En bouche, citron, gazon, malt caramelisé et légèrement terreux, pamplemousse, un peu de litchi. Ressemble à leur blonde standard mais avec un petit peu de houblons exotiques. Mauvaise utilisation du Galaxy. Ce dernier n’est pas vraiment mis en valeur et c’est dommage. Reste quand même la meilleure de leur gamme "houblonnée".

Can shared. Hazy gold pour thin white head. Aroma is fruity, light tropical notes, soft bready malt aromas. Flavor is a bit dull, soft grainy flavors light grassiness sweet. Palate is light bodied, almost watery with light carbonation. Decent for who makes it.

Bamsen78 (5562) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2015
Bottle. Pours nearly clear amber with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of hops, fruit and yeast, wuth mild citric touches. Citric flavour with bitter notes of metal and hops and fruity and malty touches. Estery and acidic aftertaste. Drinkable but a poor example of the style.
