pictoman (1232) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 14, 2017
Poured from the tap. Hazy blonde with white head. Belgian yeast and mild spice, hint of hops.

3.6
beerplace (2158) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 2, 2016
650ml bottle from the brewery. Pours a hazy straw golden with a strong white head. Aroma is spices, Belgian yeasts. Taste is pretty the same with noticable freshness from wet hops. Good Belgian Blonde.

3.5
Lagerboy (2239) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 29, 2016
Bomber. Unclear dirty blonde, ridiculously huge rocky white foam eventually settles and lasts. Aroma of citrus, yeast and some spice. Spiced yeasty citric floral taste, lean pils type and wit malts, wet hoppage is barely noticeable. Highly carbonated, medium bodied, moderately hopped. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

3.3
CapFlu (5132) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 1, 2016
Crazy, large marshmallow white foamy head atop a clear golden body. Nose of lemon zest and yeast. Flavour is crisp, mild hop and white pepper. Tasty.

sulawang (1202) - - DEC 31, 2015
Visual: Pours mildly hazy light straw yellow with a large, very long-lasting super creamy head, thick sticky lacing, clusters upon clusters of very fast large CO2 streams. Visually beautiful.

Nose: sour funk acidity, pineapple wheat malt. (lvl-7)-pungency

Attack: crisp-micro fizzy, incoming sour wheat malt

Mid-palate: (lvl-3)-sweetness, (MAIN) banana wheat malt, sour citrus, tangy barnyard funk

Finish: coriander dryness, ginger-like astringent bitterness, sour tang pukey finish.

Summary: Flavours were muddled until it started to warm up. Not really liking the flavours and transitions in this one. Too astringent in pukey sourness, rough finish as well.

DuffMan (10732) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 24, 2015
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Hazy light orange, massive white head. Estery yeast and light citrus with an astringent bitter finish. More yeast character than hop character, and neither is particularly thrilling me, sorry. Just ok.

UXO (1922) - CANADA - NOV 15, 2015
Appearance: hazy straw with a huge unwieldy fluffy white head, excellent retention and lacing. (4/5) Aroma: lemon zest, Belgian yeast funk, coriander and black pepper, pale grainy malt, earth. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium-light body, moderate-high carbonation, dry and slightly funky finish. (4/5)

I think this might be the best Dageraad I’ve had yet. Lots of Belgian character on the nose and the tongue, with a pleasant dry finish. Champagne-like body and carbonation, with very little indication of the relatively high ABV. The massive unwieldy head is like a brett infection, and I was going to say it doesn’t otherwise seem like it, but upon reflection, there are some brett-like flavours. Reminiscent of a De Ranke XX Bitter or a Jolly Pumpkin Calabaza Blanca. (16/20)

pintbypint (3882) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 13, 2015
650ml brown bottle. Lemony yellow and hazy in the glass. Sopay bubbled white head on top. Nose has ornage and spicy hops. Taste has a little fruitiness and sweetness with a spicy dash of hops. Finish is a bit herbal and spicy. Well carbonated. Nicely done.

patricks110 (2715) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 2, 2015
noticable effervescent spritz as the head forms into a dense and bulky pure white foam. Solid carbonation in the glass and as the head simmers a lot of lacing rings stick to the glass. The body is a hazy yellow straw with some larger yeast sediment floating around. At first glance this is a beautiful beer by appearance alone but lets dive into the aroma and flavour. The nose is heavy with citrus zest and light earthy notes, minor spice notes come through with a pinch of coriander and black pepper. A nicely done and well balanced aroma with lemon peel and a light grainy malt balancing well. The flavour is quite floral with light perfumy notes and a bunch of lemon zest, earthy straw and grainy malts balance the hops and yeast well. More spice in the flavour profile than the nose alluded too with light cardamom and nutmeg notes joining the pepper and coriander. The hops are lighter then expected but balance the profile well. The finish is creamy and mildly bitter with a lingering spice and lemon zest note. As the beer warms I notice more fruity notes of pear and apple, light banana and a an overall harmonious flavour. This is an example of where a wet hopped beer is made is good balance

3.8
MunBro (942) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 1, 2015
The best Belgian I’ve had that’s not officially Trappist. Hazy golden pour with a foamy white head. Tons of lacing. Has a perfect carbonation level, tons of soft microbubbles. Flavours of yeasts, breads, grains, spices, zest, with a grassy and spicy mild hop bitterness. Stunning.
