Bierdimpfe (640) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2016
Veiled golden color with strong subtle activity and some detritus. Creamy white 2 finger head, lasting around 15 minutes, with good legs. Aromas of citrus and rich hops. Flavors of smoky pine, lemon, orange, grapes, coriander, clove, caramel, floral and herbal spices. Highly grassy and a little woody. A little sugary with more of a sharp citrus and herbal feel. Slick medium body with prickly carbonation. Medium strength finish of moderate length, ending with a sharp hoppy, citrus, and strong piney feel on the tongue. Overall a pretty good craft that is more like an IPA than the typical APA. Good freshness and a nice taste while overly piney with lots of diacetyl.

s_r (141) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 12, 2016
Robe dorée-orangée, nez à la fois fruité et houblonné. En bouche la primeur revient à des notes maltés, en équilibre avec ce qui suit : une amertume herbeuse délicate et savoureuse, et la légère pointe d’agrumes. Un parfait équilibre en bouche !

CurbDog (119) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2015

ARH (1125) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 24, 2015
On tap, poured into a nonic pint. Grassy, floral, and herbal aromas are immediately noticeable with an earthy baseline; very outdoorsy. Later, some light toffee and citrus pokes through. There’s a slight haze to the amber orange brew, with a white, doughy soap head that keeps moderate amount by the end and leaves some mild lace on the glass. The taste is a medium, grassy bitter with a compliment of medium sweet. The texture is oily with a soft fizz carbonation. The medium body has a profile of toffee, very subtle tart berry and citrus with a light floral spice. The finish is herbaceous and grassy with a bit of an earthy spice that leads to caramel. The aftertaste clean and herbal.
