Not bad for what it is. On the nose I get some citrus and pine, on the palate there is a little grassy flavor with that farmhouse funk, not much in the way of the malt. A little nice yeast on the finish too. Overall, decent beer for the price.

Boutip (6273) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 10, 2014
Bottle: Poured a hazy dirty beige color ale with a generous pure white foamy head with good retention and some great lacing. Aroma of dry noble hops with light rustic malt presence and bready yeast is very enjoyable. Taste is a very nice mix of dry noble hops with nice floral undertone with great rustic malt presence and some bready yeast notes. Body is full with great carbonation. This is the type of beers I would like to have access to on a regular basis easy drinking with plenty of character.

Bottle from Proof. Light hazy gold pour with a fluffy white head. Aroma of yeast funkiness, sourdough, lemon rind, light white peppercorn spice and citrus. Flavor is similar with more zesty citrus, funk and yeast spice. Palate is nice bubbling as to it and hoppy citrus in the finish. Very solid.

.750 ml. bottle. Batch #9/10, Apr 2013. Pours a medium, well retained white head, with some lacing, over a slightly hazy (bottle conditioned) orange gold (SRM 5) body....nose is light citrus with lemon, orange tones, cereal, earth, hints of barnyard funk, hints of hop spice.....taste is light citrus, with hints of sweetness initially, bits of funk, finishing dry with a moderate slightly harsh bitterness.....mouth feel light of medium, carbonation low with a clean acid finish. This falls nicely into the Belgian Blond Ale style. It is nicely balanced, has good complexity in both aroma and flavor. The bitterness on the finish is ever so slightly harsh, but this beer is 9 months old and hops will evolve in that time. BJCP 8/3/15/4/7
