July 14, 2013 - at the Rhino Summer Beer Festival 2013. Draught. Ugliest beer I have seen in ages - looks dead - like something died in it; thick and separated into layers of semi-liquids which do not at all resemble beer; like spoilt pineapple juice - brown, ochre, yellow ... blah. Aroma of overripe pear, alcohol, acetone; if I am being generous, wildflower - if I am being UNgenerous, aviation fuel. Taste is ... pretty much a glass of nothing; harsh and a little wheaty. Thick, dead, unpleasant mouthfeel - pretty much a 100% misfire. Overheard: "it looks like a glass of sadness" mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 12, 2014
[5579-20130714] Cask. Plasticky grains aroma. Murky, light brown body with a quick foamy white head. Tangerine yeast flavour. Medium body. Average. (Apparently the cask blew all over when it was tapped.) (6/3/6+/3/12) 3.0

Overheard: "It looks like a glass of sadness."
500 ml bottle, at the Laughing Buddha, in Sudbury. Pours a slightly hazy colour with medium white head. Aroma is malts, fruits. Taste is malts, some citrus, spices. Pretty decent Belgian style brew. kevinsenn (2215) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 3, 2013
Bottle at Nick & Nat’s Uptown 21. Yellow and clear, white head. Belgian yeast aroma and taste, with a little bit of a bitter kick at the end. Not bad, and nice to see Grand River branching out to Belgian styles. yrstruly (333) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 2, 2013
Pours slightly hazy, bright gold with a fine white head. Aroma of pils malt, lemon, fruity esters. Taste is light sweetness, slightly tart, with lemon and light malt, and a hint of bitterness in the finish. Slightly astringent finish as well, medium body. Nice Belgian-style beer.

500ml bottle from the brewery. deep golden with a small white head. fruity estery nose. slightly fruity flavour, a touch sweeter then id like for the style, also just a touch too bitter. ok but grand river has done much better beers then this. BreWedge (534) - goose bay, Newfoundland, CANADA - SEP 9, 2013
On tap @ Wellington Gastropub Ottawa. Pours a clear dark gold with a small white head. Aromas are bananas, bubblegum, Tastes are subtle banana and clove like a German wheat beer but also brings a little rye-like grain, hoppy bitterness and a touch of alcohol. Medium body, plenty of carbonation, and a medium dry astringent finish. Interesting.

Cask at ’The Rhino Summer Beer Festival 2013’. Doesn’t look very nice. Pours a murky pale yellow with no head. Aroma of yeast, citrus, banana and sugar. yeasty flavour with a herbal finish. Average bodied. Drinkable but it’s a mess -- IPA? Methinks the cask was not ready to be served. JoeMcPhee (9427) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 23, 2013
Pale orange pour with a thin white head. The aroma is softly hoppy with a light touch of fruitiness. There is a little bit of spiciness in here but the yeast is pretty restrained. Moderate bitterness on the finish with a bit of light fruit as well. Nice stuff really. solidfunk (8964) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUL 18, 2013
Pours cloudy orange. Aroma of yeast, hops and mash malt. Watery texture. Slightly sour finish. Low carbonation. Tap at the Rhino.
