T/p: med body with light acidic finish. Moderate high carbonation. O: Nice aroma great complexity really like the herbacy it’s almost perfumy.

czar (8896) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 7, 2016
on tap on the premises. unclear bright golden with a very creamy white head offering good retention and lacing. sweetish bread, doughy grapes, some melon fruitiness, belgian spiciness - fairly present cinnamon; welcoming phenolic esters, minerals. moderately low carbonation - could be a lot brighter; light body - very oily; semi-sweet melon-spicy finish. another one sweet sister with interesting tropical-citrusy flavors.

MartinT (9765) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2015
My Bottom Line:
Pears, tropical fruit, honey and lightly peppery spice coalesce in this perfectly cohesive Belgian-style Blond Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the misty golden shine.
-The malts are perfectly developed, the esters sit upon them harmoniously, and the hops add that fruity/spicy touch which make everything gel. Beautiful 3-tier balance, a rare occurence these days.
-Drinkability is optimal.
-Carbonation is soft yet ample.

On tap at Station Ho.st.

jercraigs (10303) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 22, 2015
2015-02-14. Crisp dark yellow body with a nice creamy off white head and lace. 3+ Aroma is pleasantly spiced, with an interesting melange of florals and fruit notes. Touches of lemon. Flavour is moderately bitter throughout, touches of lemon and notes of a not quite peppery spice character. Smooth average bodied palate, soft carbonation. On tap at Station Host, Montreal.
