COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blonde opalescente coiffée d’une généreuse couronne de mousse. On trépigne en humant ses arômes complexes d’agrumes et de fruits de la passion qui dévoilent les prémisses d’une satisfaction future. La bouche offre les mêmes fruits, parallèlement au goût d’épices produits par une levure saison authentique. Il en résulte une bière désaltérante, combinant avec un charme certain le flair du Nouveau Monde et la rusticité du vieux continent.

pumpkinhead2 (936) - Longueuil, Quebec, - SEP 13, 2013
Bière jaune orangée, voilée, extrêmement effervescente et surmontée d’une très abondante mousse blanche. Arôme de houblon herbacé et citronné, agrumes (pamplemousse dominant), fruits tropicaux (ananas, mangue, fruit de la passion…), herbes et épices, un peu de levure. En bouche, c’est pétillant et mousseux, tout en apportant une certaine onctuosité au palais. Au goût, c’est surtout herbacé et citronné, on retrouve également le pamplemousse, les fruits tropicaux et un petit peu de levure. Cette bière est plutôt acidulée, et la finale amène un bon goût de houblon herbeux avec une amertume modérée.

I went to get this one in Aylmer since LCBO started selling this one by pack of 24, later you could buy it by unit. An ok saison. I was looking for this one as it was part of LCBO Spring 2017 collection

Big white head quickly goes coarse then shrinks. Hazy yellow body with visible particles and carbonation. Spicy fruity oily aroma with herbal notes. Dryish fruity mealy taste with soft metal and pepper notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish mealy apple taste with floral fruity notes. Nice, drinkable, not terribly remarkable.

Juli17: lys gul/gyllen sløret med høyt hvitt skum. Dufter moden frukt, belgisk gjær og bondegård. Friskt syrlig og surt anslag med fin friskhet og lett gjær og krydder i ettersmaken. God, men ikke topp saison. Bommer litt med surheten for min smak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AleRider78 (1333) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 9, 2017
Pours a foamy bubbly head and has a cloudy golden fruity appearance. Huge sediments settle at the bottom of glass. Good lacing. Aromas are grainy , light roasted malts, breads, barley and yeast. Flavours are citrus hops, oranges, fruits, sweet malts, yeast. Quite flavourful. Pretty bitter in the finish but not offensive. Astringent sensation and drying, puckering mouthfeel. Fairly tangy as well. Really good.
