UPDATED: MAY 5, 2014 I don’y know how much it tastes like a Belgian IPA, but whatever it tastes like i really liked it! Helsdon (429) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2013
Intense nose of hops. Pours, even very carefully, with a very foamy and full head that takes it’s sweet time to break down, and leaves a lacing on the sides of the glass. A cloudy golden in colour with an active carbonation. A rather abrupt hops hit without a lot of complexity with a bitter finish. Not one of my favourites. shaynsawchuk (713) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 23, 2013
750 mL bottle. Pours a murky green tinged orange hue with a huge rocky white head that lasts and laces. Aromas of lemony hop, coriander spice, cotton candy and herb. Dry and perfume-like with a floral finish. Moderate body with high carbonation. Strangely well balanced. Tasty, and not what I expected. herrbrown1974 (427) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 23, 2013
Bottle from LCBO. WILD carbonation almost made me wonder if it was spoiled, but upon settling and getting enough in the glass it was fine. Cloudy copper pour with a foamy white head. Aroma of hops, yeast, floral sweetness and a hint of banana. Medium, smooth body. Flavour is bready and lightly spiced with a pleasant bitter backbone. A flavourful and balanced version of this style. hangunder (305) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2013
Bottle keeps pouring up foam as it opens. Belgian yeast and floral hops on the nose, smells mild and sweet. Nice balance between the belgian yeast and the hops. Hazy golden, long lasting foamy head. Taste is fairly mild mixture of belgian yeast and sweetness upfront with a slightly hoppy finish with some belgian yeast lingering. Light/medium bodied, heavy carbonation. Not sure if the anything happened to this bottle given the large amount of foam, but I would have hoped the pleasant aroma would be backed up with a more assertive taste.

750ml crown capped bottle – decants a hazed honey gold with a billowing meringue white cap (yup it lasts). Big natural carbonation. Aroma of spicy apricot notes, lightly sweet pale malt, leafy hops and Belgian yeast funk. Flavor follows more like a Belgian blonde/pale – light spicey, fruity, dry hoppy finish. I like it but there is little IPA character kevinsenn (2327) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 13, 2013
750mL bottle from LCBO. Cloudy amber, huge white head. Floral aroma with spice and citrus fruits. Taste has spice, sweet malt, fruit, with a bitter and floral finish, High carbonation. Decent Belgian IPA, although slightly on the "plain" side (for a Belgian IPA). Freaky_tiki (1422) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 12, 2013
Pours deep gold with a 5 finger white cap. This bottle is a gusher, more foam than you could ever ask for. But it is a beautiful rocky cap, looks like a fistful of shaving foam, with twist & twirls bordering on abstract art. Taste is a spicy North American interpretation of a Belgian. Starts off crisp; finishes with a light puff of ipa hoppiness. mnurda (1308) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 15, 2013
Sampled at Festebiere in Quebec. Hoppy and crisp tasting. Would like to try this again.

Blonde ayant un côté sombre, elle est recouverte d’une appréciable couche de mousse blanche. Au nez, c’est assez limité : un peu de houblons, avec du sucre et des céréales blondes ; pas de levures jusqu’à maintenant. En bouche, c’est plus léger et fruité que prévu : pommes, ananas, une bonne amertume à la fin mais un petit trait aqueux vient malheureusement mettre un frein à tout ça, juste après les céréales blondes. Une bonne bière, mais pas un produit-phare de Dunham, qui nous as habitués à mieux.
