Golden yellow pour. Aroma has banana and spices. Taste a lot of juniper berries and Belgian yeast. Wasn’t expecting this to be so good. What a nice surprise Tranquillity (2507) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 5, 2017
Half-hazy body, small white head. The aroma has malt, citrus. The taste is grassy and has some berries. Raistlin (459) - London, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 26, 2016
Really cool name for beer and great can design, but not much more. Other positive is that considering how high the alcohol percentage is, it is well masked and you do not get that awful taste of pure alcohol. It has taste of spices and juniper berries. Not sure i want juniper berries in my beer, reminded me of gin. As it got warmer it actually tasted better. Kauge (2119) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 12, 2016
Can from LCBO. 7.1%. BB Sept 2016. Pours pale, near clear golden with small off-white head. Now that’s a strangeish aroma, not exactly in a bad way I must add... Indeed I get the heather tips, and the juniper, but the overall character is a bit waxy, as if candlewax dripped on fir tree needles. Softens as it warms, becoming quite sweet and candy-like. Tastes herbal waxy sweet and bitter. Opens up later on to some rather nice rotten appley character. More candy sweet later on. Soft on the palate with crisp but thin carbonation and medium body. A pretty nice, and quite interesting BSA. 97hill (224) - - MAY 10, 2016
Always happy to be pleasantly suprised by a tasty beer. Love the spiciness with the juniper and Belgian yeast notes, very refreshing and very tasty indeed.
Not so odd after all

Big upfront herbal aroma followed by Belgian yeast for the rest of the drink. Pint can, 7.1%, pours gold, clear, big moussey head. Super lacing. The first taste is BAM, juniper which blends in with the heather, hops and less noticeable orange peel. The tongue gets ’used’ to these more uncommon flavours later on, leaving it on the sweeter side of the scale, not quite enough to be cloying, with obvious Belgian esters. Bitter finish though. Fairly creamy mouthfeel, has a good richness that just.. beckons another sip.
I love juniper, and a lot of gruits, so this was up my alley and done very well. GlennHendry (504) - OSHAWA, Ontario, CANADA - APR 27, 2016
Smells of bananas and spices. The Belgian force is strong with this beer, with fruitcake and spices, pear, citrus and juniper berries, along with classic Belgian yeast notes. I’m an IPA guy and I really liked this. Damn good beer.

Can. Two fingers off white head. Clear amber. Belgian dominant aromas, banana, herbaceous, heather, almost gruit-like aroma but much more enjoyable (yes, biased). Belgian yeast character, spice, pear, banana, heather, malty sweetness, and slight coconut (oddly enough). Med-high carbonation, light body, dry finish (nice attenuation), sweet finish with light astringency. Odd and satisfying. LadySusan (766) - Ste-Therese, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 24, 2016

Can. Slightly cloudy amber pour with a white head. Aroma is citrus and candy notes, a touch bready with some spice, lemon and orange zest. Taste is bold and fruity, citrus and spice notes, and again a little bready. Quite nice for Muskoka and for the style!
