On tap at Benelux, pours a cloudy blonde with a medium white head. Aroma is very Belgian-esque, with Belgian yeast, some candied sugar and banana. Flavour is quite dry, with lots of Belgian yeast, a small hint of sweetness and some light apple. Medium carbonation and easy drinking. Solid. yngwie (17234) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 2, 2016
On tap at Mondial de la bière Montréal 2015. A clear, golden beer with a small, off-white head. Banana, some lemon and a minimal touch of phenols, as well as some wheat in the aroma. It’s medium to full-bodied, with a soft carbonation. Banana and lemon, wheat, white sugar and some bitterness in the lightly perfumed flavor. Long banana-dominated finish. Overall, too much banana in this one, else it’s a fine beer. 150611 Lubiere (14151) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2006

My Bottom Line:JoeMcPhee (9550) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2009
Firm cereals develop a silky mouthfeel before cracking herbal, wooden hops soar, concluding another balanced, clean, and very enjoyable Benelux Belgian-style Ale.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam skirts the hazy blonde.
-The cereals become biscuity at times.
-The wooden hop bitterness grows on you.
-The small, prickly bubbles and rather round mouthfeel show the beer’s North American heritage.
-Spicy yeastiness expresses itself mostly in the nose.
On tap at the brewpub.
Tap at Benelux. Pale straw colour. Aroma shows a light apricot nose, along with clove and banana. The flavour is pretty nice. Although this yeast has been done to death, the brewer here has managed to restrain its inherent sweetness. A light spicy hoppiness on the back. Nice clovey finish on the back of the palate. A very respectful Belgian Ale. Warming bring up some more berryish fruit. It’s nice. czar (9430) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 30, 2012
