JoeMcPhee (9426) - 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 dont 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

AleRider78 (942) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 18, 2017
Part of Beaus B-Sides label. Pours a very large amount of foamy/bubbly white head. Has a slightly cloudy, pale golden appearance. Patchy lacing. Aromas of floral hops quite dominant as well as citrus hops, wheats and mild grains. Flavours of floral and citrus hops, some light rye notes, very mild sweetness. Also some barley malts and a bit of yeast showing. Fairly excessive carbonation. Slick, oily mouthfeel with a zesty mouthcoating finish. Really refreshing mix of hops and many organic ingredients.

Kissmeyer Beaus Nordic Pale Ale En regardant la liste dingrdient, jtais vraiment incertain du resultat. On ii affaire une pale ale qui mise surtout sur le ct herbale et florale avec des pointes dpices et mme un peu petit peu de fruit. Les cannerberges et le sirop drable sont trs subtil et ont pass relativement innapercu. Pour une bire avec autant dingrdient je dirais que le tout est trs subtil et ne scarte pas tant dune pale ale reguliere mais ajoute assez de complexit pour en faire une bire dexception. Cest trs bien balanc et trs 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 (3857) - 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. Im not sure what this beer is supposed to be. Its a mess. I couldnt finish it.

Beardbeerman (341) - 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 (1834) - 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 - Id love a chilled glassful of this while strolling in an Estonian bog in late summer - thatd be bliss!
