2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Fruity nose and some unidentifiable notes. Soft, diacetyl body with mango, canteloupe and light pear juice. Strange beer, I’m not sure what to make of it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Mondial de la bière Montréal 2015. It’s an unclear, amber colored beer topped by a small offwhite head leaving some lacing. Biscuity malts, hay, grass, pinecones and a generic fruityness in the aroma. It’s fullbodied, smooth and nicely carbonated, with a little malty, bready touch in the back of the flavor. Hay, grass and pine cones too, with a subtle bitterness. Long malty and lightly fruity finish. A bit malty this one but nice indeed. Especially love the mouthfeel. 150611

A hazed reddish brown ale with a thin creamy mocha head. In aroma, smooth mix of candy sugar and floral hops, orange pulp, quite nice. In mouth, a nice treacle malt with nice herbal hops, menthol, nutty notes, very nice. On tap at Mondiale 2012 , June 9 2012.

@Mondial de la Bière 2012, Montreal - cloudy dark amber beer; little foam left, earthy, caramel; lively and tasty palate; some late bitterness; aftertaste of nougat and honey, earthy and fairly hoppy; candi sugar and notes of alcohol - a different beer, hard to spot

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Unique in it’s fruitiness as far as belgian strongs are concerned. Don’t know that i would have been able to specify "grape" without it being in the description, but that’s it. Slight grape flavor on top of subtle hopping, and a sweet and spicy belgian yeast. not a standout, but a pretty nice brew."

Pours hazy deep golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, yeast, dried fruits, floral, hay and grass. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with a long fruity, yeasty and grassy finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at RR Street. Pours hazy brown with minimal off-khaki head. Nose is candi sugary malt, figgy and merloty fruit, dry florals. Tastes fruity, with notes of merlot, earthy funky yeasty esters, some florals and hops and heat in the finish. Solid complexity. A nice find.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2012-06-08. Hazy dark amber-brown body with a small beige head. 3+ Flavour is nice, with a malty core and modest spice, sort of peppery, light alcohol notes, and light biscuity touches to the malt. 7+ Aroma of alcohol, mild spice character similar to that in the aroma. 7+ Medium body that suits it and has a perfect moderate carbonation level. 3+ Pretty solid, my description here doesn’t really do it justice. On tap at Mondial, Montreal

On tap at Hopfenstark during their anniversary party. Pours a clear amber with a medium sized white to beige head. Light musk, toast, warm malt and candy. Medium bodied, warm and toasty, slightly sweet. A touch of warm cereal, candy sugar, sweet and warming. Finishes with a good bit of toasty malt, a bit of warming alcohol, toast and sweetness. Nice.
