JoeMcPhee (9325) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, - JUN 25, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2014 Bottle from LCBO. Pale golden pour with a thin white head. The aroma is awesome - lots of bright spicy/herbal aroma. Sort of gruit-like but with a flinty dryness in addition to a bit of soft fruitiness. There is a little bit of spice and a touch of lean pale malt. It has an almost bretty character even though I don’t think they use any. Earthy bitterness but a lingering freshness. Really damn tasty. Tap at Brydens. Very pale golden pour with a little bit of soft yeast suspension. Nice light fruit and a soft earthiness. Moderate bitterness with a touch of light spice on the finish. Pretty nice, summery beer. Lingering wheatiness flavour. 7 3 7 3 14

Bouteille. Jaune assez claire, muosse blanche. Arôme de céréales et épices, florale. En bouche, malt et un peu de sucre, épices et miel. Bonne.

hellonearth (133) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 9, 2016
Arômes floraux, herbeux et d’agrumes séchés. Robe jaune/blanchâtre voilé. Goût rappelant une IPA, mais version soft et crémeuse. Un tantinet sucré, un brin amère. Goodie!

Kissmeyer Beau’s Nordic Pale Ale En regardant la liste d’ingrédient, j’étais vraiment incertain du resultat. On à içi affaire à une pale ale qui mise surtout sur le côté herbale et florale avec des pointes d’épices et même un peu petit peu de fruité. Les cannerberges et le sirop d’érable sont très subtil et ont passé relativement innapercu. Pour une bière avec autant d’ingrédient je dirais que le tout est très subtil et ne s’écarte pas tant d’une pale ale reguliere mais ajoute assez de complexité pour en faire une bière d’exception. C’est très bien balancé et très bon.

Assez surprenante pour une pale ale, le gout présent du houblon rappel une ipa traditionel. Ses arome d'herbes et de canneberges nous transporte en campagne pour une experience delectable.

jamestulloch (3592) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 28, 2016
Bottle from LCBO. Hazy golden body with a medium white head. Lively carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of dried apricot, dry earth, honeyed fig and grass. Flavour of yeast, white pepper, bread and a hint of glue on the finish. Thin to medium body with a light, oily texture. Very fizzy. I’m not sure what this beer is supposed to be. It’s a mess. I couldn’t finish it.

Beardbeerman (339) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 27, 2016
Pours a foggy golden topped by a thin fizzy white head showing low retention, and leaving some rare spotted lacing. Very low carbonation. The nose is both fruity and floral with strong pineapple, peaches, grapefruit and heather. Likewise for the taste, though the heather is pretty proeminent. Medium-low mouthfeel but nice palate covering bitterness. Finish is floral with a grassy shift at the end. This is one dry and refreshing fruity ale. Pretty interesting. Cheers!

Kauge (1649) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 16, 2016
Bottle from LCBO. Pours murky orange with persistent creamy white head. The aroma is very pleasantly herbal with cranberry juice. The mild herbs really mix well with the berry sourness. Tastes cranberry juice sweet upfront with herbal and berry bitter in the finish. Crisp thin carbonation, body a bit watery, finish dry. Excellent drinkability despite the domination of herbs and thickish sour berries which I think is always a tricky combination. Really lovely stuff - I’d love a chilled glassful of this while strolling in an Estonian bog in late summer - that’d be bliss!

Ce liquide blond à l’effervescence faible a tout pour séduire l’amateur de bière qui recherche une bière rafraîchissante à boire fraiche. Cette collaboration de Beau’s et Kissmayer goûte particulièrement la pêche et les agrumes, ce qui s’allie bien avec l’amertume modérée du liquide. La Nordic Pale Ale, sans être excessivement complexe, la bière fait bien le travail.

Un goût d’agrume léger. Un goût prenant. Le houblon se fait sentir. Une excellente bière.

Servie d’une bouteille à deux verres. La bière est dorée/orangée et trouble. Au nez, très herbacé. Un peu de fleurs, un peu d’agrumes, un peu de résine. Ça sent très bon! En bouche, c’est très herbacé au début, mais ça devient sucré en fin de bouche. La finale est bien longue. C’est excessivement bien balancé, et j’en boirais plein.
