jercraigs (10210) - Toronto, Ontario, - SEP 19, 2012
2012-09-14. Very hazy dark brown body, small beige head. 3+ Quite sweet, it has almost a dunkelweizen like caramel quality to it, odd undertones, sort of a dry malt character, muted fruit. 6+ Interesting fruity malty aroma, nice caramel malt, muted yeast. 6+ Medium plus palate, carbonation is too low. Has some very nice interesting highlights, but comes together a bit strangely. Grows on me, but I still dont finish the glass. Odd. On tap at Beer Academy, Toronto

kevinsenn (2146) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 13, 2012
Bottle from brewery. Pours dark, with little-to-no head. Somehow looks a bit "thin". Aroma of figs and other dried fruits, and musty spices. The taste is a little roasty/smoky, with caramel, some dark fruits, and a dry finish. Doesnt taste very Belgian.

solidfunk (8358) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 20, 2012
Alright. Smells a little funky, pours cloudy brown and has some sort of beer on lees yeast taste reminiscent of unibroue beers without being that good. Finish has some oaky bitterness. Medium palate.

HogTownHarry (6482) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2012
June 20, 2012 - at The Beer Academy launch event. Draught sample. Hazy/murky brownish-amber, a lovely thick plug of tightly creamy/rocky taupe lasting head. Nice aroma - sweet thick caramel malt, lots of lush yeast, banana and a little chalkiness (7+). Taste follows - even more mineral bitterness to balance out what is fundamentally a sweet beer. Thick, weakly carbonated, surprising sweaty fresh herbal bitterness in the finish, quite good.

Bouteille de 625ml achete la brasserie To. Par mon ami Pat. Bire brune sans mousse, elle avait disparue rapidement. Le nez est agrable avec des pices provenant de la levure belge. Il y a du sucre candi. La bouche est mince mais savoureuse. Il y a des bulles. La bouche est belge, belle phrase. Les saveurs sont dpices et de sucre. Trs agrable. On frise la double ici.

The beer pours a hazed brown colour with a thin tan ring for a head. The aroma was yeast, sugar, dark fruits, and caramel. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavour is very similar to Koningshoven Dubbel, which is a good thing...dark fruits, sweet, with some yeastiness.

Radek Kliber (7274) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - SEP 9, 2012
Bottle 625 ml
Aroma: characteristic Belgian yeast notes , chocolate , some plum. Darker toasty character behind. Slight dryness of alcohol. Good.
Apperance: slight haze on light amber , touch of red. Medium slightly tanned top.
Taste: woody , toasty , with slight spice. Sweeter walls, medium bit dull bit one sided with overly toasty notes. One of least like brews from BA.

blankboy (7509) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 31, 2012
Draught at the brewery, June 20. Pours a murky copper-brown with an average size diminishing creamy tan head. Aromas slightly sugary sweet along with some banana and malt. Flavours also sweet and malty along with some banana and spice. Average bodied. Super sweet, too much so.
Note: Rated on opening week and some of these beers may be tweaked in the following weeks, if thats the case I will re-rate in the future.

SlovakSniper (5393) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 27, 2012
Une dgustation sur place. Un liquide brun et sa mince feuille de mousse. Des parfums de sucre candi et de levure fruite. Des pices et des traces de gomme-baloune et/ou de banane. Des saveurs qui vont dans tous les sens. Une propension vers la douceur. Une bouche qui nest pas formidable. Un ptillement et une texture qui imitent le style. Une finale plutt sucre. Le maillon faible de lacadmie.
