COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
La Formidable is a 6.9% American-Belgo IPA; a relatively new hybrid beer style that crosses bold, citrusy American-style hop aromas with the signature fruity, spicy and earthy elements of Belgian yeast. The hazy golden ale exudes appetizing aromas of grapefruit and orange, along with light piney notes and white pepper. The flavour offers a firm but balanced bitterness that is complemented by citrus fruitiness. The finish is spicy with earthy undertones.

DanDan_ (83) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 24, 2017
Bottle, 12/28/16 poured into a Toscana: Hazy orange with goodies, lively foamy white head that calms quite quickly and leaves a bit of lacing. Aroma of citrus (grapefruit), mango, floral, resin, belgian yeast, and a bit of pepper spice. Fruity and bitter taste (maybe a bit overly bitter). Good medium-full body, average carb, oily feel and astringent dry finish. Overall: Love this style but definitely leans more IPA > Belgian.

An opaque copper with a hoppy lightly Funky belgian yeast aroma. Medium bodied with w dry finish this is a really nice Belgian IPA. A good sipper.

Pours hazy orange with a white head that laces the glass.  Aroma is grapefruit, mango and pine.  Has a good balanced taste of sweet and bitter with a low carbonation.  Beaus delivers yet another great beer.

Bottle from Toronto courtesy of my girlfriend. Pours cloudy orange with retentive 2 finger white head. Aroma of Apricot, Clementine and piquant zest. Taste is dominated by grapefruit and orange peel. Notes of Lemon, Apple and Peach. Softly carbonated with a nice sharp bite in the finish. There’s a lot of flakey sediment that comes to rest at the bottom.Really good stuff and interesting brewery story.

jamestulloch (4471) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 21, 2016
Bottle from Loblaws. Hazy orange body with yeast flecks floating below a medium white head. Steady carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of marmalade, peach sherbet and salted apricot. Flavour of green apple, white sugar, lemon peel and peppery herbs. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. This grew on me the more I drank.

Arseniq33 (63) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 12, 2016
Servie d’une bouteille à une tulipe. Bière trouble et orangée, avec un léger col blanc. Au nez: un peu d’agrumes, de pêches, de poivre, de résine. Un léger fond épicé. En bouche, bonne amertume supportée par les agrumes, et encore le fond épicé de la levure. Finale sèche.

ILduce (285) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2016
UPDATED: APR 26, 2016 Bottle LCBO: pale orange beer with nice fizzy head and some sediment. Big, bright aromas of flowery, resinous hops, citrus fruits and yeast. Taste is bready, fruity and spicy. Medium to full bodied with a nice, lightly astringent mouthfeel. Not indicative of the style, but quite good nonetheless.

3.8
AwaKe (300) - Laval, CANADA - APR 21, 2016
En bouteille. Dorée trouble avec mousse aérienne qui disparaît rapidement. Arômes légèrement fruités. Goût très houblonné, citrons, épices avec une finale de levure belge et poivrée. Palais assez enrobant, effervescence élevée intensifié par l'intensité des houblons. Ça pique, ça rafraîchi, c'est bon. Excellent produit, quoique un peu cher comme tout les produits de Beau's.
