April 20, 2012 - on cask at Volo. Very cloudy lemon yellow with a large white frothy head, thick lacing. Smells like a hopped-up hefeweizen - sweet, spicy, yeasty, grassy - I like it (7+). Taste follows, but more grass, less hefe - really bitter; chewy, airy carbonation, long pungent grassy/catty finish - really pushed my buttons, great brew.
Deep golden-amber pour. Thick white head. The nose is moderately sweet with aromas of gooseberry and kiwi. A bit of sweet Munich maltiness through the middle that adds a bit of toffeeish notes. Flavour is pretty juicy - some fruity Belgian esters and a fairly assertive bitterness on the finish. Nice enough - but doesn’t come together for me completely. blankboy (7884) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 8, 2012
Draught at Volo, April 20. Pours a cloudy yellow-orange with a small diminishing creamy white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, light hops, herbs and fruit. Sweet yeasty flavour, a bit too sweet, along with fruit and some alcohol. Medium bodied. Pretty good, I didn’t love it but I liked it. mabel (10003) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2012
[4382-20120420] Tap. White wine Chardonnay aroma has a hint of orange. Hazy, bright orange body with a quick foamy white head. Tangy orange lemon citrus hops flavour has a lingering bitter orangeness. Medium body is tangy. Tasty but a bit rough around the edges. (7/3/7/3/14) 3.4

Enjoyed on tap at Bar Volo, one off preliminary fest to the IPA Challenge. I am getting what a cross style, funk and farmhouse aroma. Some orange coloured body. Orange and pineapple flavours. Good drinkability.

2012-04-19. Hazy dark pastel yellow with a small white head. Flavour has a modest bitterness throughout that is pleasant, mix of grassy-straw and fruit character, dryish bitter finish. 7+ Aroma is mild, light dry yeasty character, light alcohol, mild fruit character. 7+ Smooth average plus palate, suitable carbonation. Rather nice, this one grew on me a lot. Perhaps the beer of the night. On tap at Volo, Pre-IPA Challenge, Toronto
