Whoa! Unique. Cloudy pour. No head at all. Aroma of fruit and yeast, that continues on the palate. Short finish. Not something I'd buy again, but worth trying. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours reddish-brown with very little head. Aroma is fruity and strong. Taste is very sweet perhaps fruit, raisins, plums.

Pours a muddy copper brownish colour with a decent soapy tan head leaving some sticky lace up the glass. Aromas of spice, lemon, yeast and some sweetness. Flavours of clove, yeast, light zesty lemon, overall spicy.

Thanks to cfrancis for this. Pours a murky brown with a frothy tan head. Aroma of sweet dried fruits, spicy herbs, pine. Taste is yeast and cloves, some sourness then has some sweetness and fruity notes. Interesting beer that is easy to sip on.

Huge difference drinking this fresh. Overall taste sours after a month. Fresh this is a wonderfully warning winter beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bendrixian (1514) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 28, 2013
Has a murky brown like colour, Aromas of fresh pine and spruce, malted and caramel candy. Has a sour taste profile with a tangy zesty finish which is surprising given the aroma on the nose.

czar (9094) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 23, 2013
pours hazy dark amber, light brown-reddish with a decent light beige head, some retention. lightly sourish berries, leafy spiciness, nicely toasted malts, tingling citric acidity, short but present grassy finish. hint of sweetness. relatively soft carbonation, light body - some oiliness. original, interesting... and nice!

OntBeerDrinker (514) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 22, 2013
3 finger head that go’s away a few seconds or so later. Carbonated. Smell’s kind foresty(twigs,ect)juicy and mabye a litle spice or something. Taste is kinda mudy like with some juiciness some twig,stick,forsty like tate. A little spice/yeast and stuff like that. Heavy bodied,leaves a little sour saliva in my mouth and a few sips have a bit of a alcoholic burn for a few second’s. Odd in an interesting way. Different bottle then picture. Cheer’s!

Atheist_Peace (981) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JAN 17, 2013
600ml bottle. Pours Hazy brown/orange with average tan head. Vegetal, malty, tangy nose. Rather odd but not in a bad way. Sourish on the palate with vegetal wooden notes and a lemony zing.

2.6
asheft (3083) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 15, 2013
[bottle from LCBO] Spicy aroma with ginger, lemon, star anise, faint clove, and brown sugar. Hazy dark brown under a thin, tan ring and patches. Sour flavour right up front, followed by pleasant brown sugar and lemon and faint spices (see aroma) and no bitterness. Light to medium-light body, moderate carbonation, lingering sourness.
