jercraigs (11071) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2013 2013-05-31. Hazy golden orange body with a nice white head and lace. Aroma is lightly grainy, pale malt, light grains, light sourness. 7+ Flavour is quite pleasant, moderate sourness, pale malt. 7+ Average bodied palate, pleasantly effervescent carbonation. 3+ Pretty nice. 7/4/7/3/15-16 3.7 Bottle at Mondial de la Biere 2013, Montreal

2008-05-31. Crisp golden body with a nice foamy off-white head. (3+) Aroma is mild, light alcohol kissed grass, hops. (6+) Pleasant zippy bitterness alludes to lemons, mild grass, pale malt. More lemon and grass in the finish lingers pleasantly. (7+) Smooth average palate suits the beer. Decent but not my favorite of their offerings. 6/4/7/3/15 - 3.5 On tap, Mondial, Montreal, 4T

daknole (11048) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 18, 2012
Cloudy yellow, white head. Spice, yeast, banana aroma. Flavor is sweetish and spiced. Good yeasty notes.

3.4
marcus (10867) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 28, 2012
Bottle from City Beer. Pours murky golden with a decent white head and a sharp fruity aroma. There is a slightly sour fruit and light malt flavor, with a dry finish. Not much of a yeast presence and a bit light on flavor, but easy to drink.

3.2
DuffMan (10751) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle, shared with Robbie. Very hazy straw yellow, lively white head. Very estery nose and palate, lacking significant hops, but this bottle may be old. Lightly spicy, chalky mouthfeel, dry finish. Not foul, but nothing stands out here.

cubs (10740) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 16, 2013
Bottle @ home picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a hazy golden orange appearance with a cream colored head. Spicy herbal yeasty, quite rustic, peppercorn, banana, lemon aroma. Lightly tart, peppery/chewy/bready yeasty, moderately dry, dull lemon citrusy flavor. A lot of dry, grassy, herbal notes. Fun to drink.

3.9
MartinT (10155) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 2, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2012 My Bottom Line:
Doughy yeast, orangey fruitiness, bready cereals and a tender spicy, herbal hop personality thrive within the cushy rye-infused mouthfeel.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A thick layer of foam laces generously atop the cloudy orange.
-The body’s creaminess is a bit overdone to achieve authenticity within its broad style, but it gives this brew a remarkable signature.
-From the nose to the aftertaste, everything exudes freshness.
-The hoppy finish sometimes personifies wet leaves.
-This is getting better and better; the bottle conditioning does wonders for the mouthfeel too.

Bottle, on tap at Vices et Versa and at Loup Rouge.
