crazy_cat_lady (724) - - APR 26, 2014
April 21, 2014. Bottle at The Workshop by Latitude. Touch of sourness. Cloudy warm reddish brown. Fluffy white head. Quite carbontated. Sour nose, malty straw aromas, with similar flavours. Not bad. Paired quite nicely with the charcuterie and cheese platterrs.

codfishh (202) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 25, 2014
Poured from a 750ml bottle, dark reddish brown, big creamy tan head, smells of raisins and spicy dark rye bread. Taste is more dark rye bread with some spicy belgian phenolics and a slightly metallic finish. Medium body with lively carbonation. Nice beer they should just call it a dubbel though.

robinvboyer (4783) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - APR 24, 2014
750ml bottle. dark copper pour, small beige head. biscuity malts, sweet fruit, minerals, herbal hops, and some light farmhouse funk. Solid mouth feel, quite lively carb. The finish is medium bitter, some spices, light alcohol, crisp, and quenching. Quite nice, some age would really bring everything together. interesting beer.

Bottle, dark brown, smell is sweet sugar and belgian yeast smells, taste is lots of dark fruits, I get some grapes, up front, some raisons, on dates and figs in there as well, lots going on, lots of sugars in there, a nice offering but not my favorite.

Tessic (1221) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 10, 2014
This ale poured a deep amber colour with a big, fat light tan head. Scents include ripe fruit, coriander spice, cloves and light malt. First swig was quite carbonated with a very fizzy mouthfeel and flavours of cloves, coriander malt and wheat. Remindes me of a more malty version of a wheat beer. Finish is malty with a lingering clove/coriander flavor.

kevinsenn (2293) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 16, 2013
Bottle from brewery. Pours clear dark brown with an enormous ever-growing head. Funky yeast aroma. Light Belgian spicy yeast in the taste, with plenty of sticky-sweet caramalts. A little vanilla too. Enjoyable.

pushkinwow (2910) - Ottawa, CANADA - OCT 18, 2013
750ml bottle given as a gift for watching the dogs...much better then money! Hazy brown with a beige head. Fruity malt, also a bit metallic although that mostly fades as the bottle airs out, some yeast, bit of a tang, grains, some caramel. Mild+ carbonation, moderate body, sweet with a bit of a tang, slight bitterness as it dries out on the palate, more malt and grain on the finish.

blankboy (7833) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 7, 2013
Bottle [750ml] at Indie Alehouse shared with jercraigs & mabel, Sep.19. Pours dark brown with a small semi-lasting frothy beige head. Aroma of tangy fruit, some light "metal" and caramel malt. Flavour is malty, tangy again, and with sweet malt and fruit. Average to medium bodied. Not a big fan of the style, I found this just good, not great.

2013-09-19. Lightly hazy very dark brown body nice creamy tan head. 3++ Aroma is tangy and fruity up front, sweetish dark malt. 7+ Flavour is pleasantly malty up front, sweet sugary malt, fruity undertones, very lightly tangy touches. Whisper of pineapple or is that in my head? 7+ Smooth average plus bodied palate, moderate carbonation. Not really what I was expecting for the style but I think I like this better than what I expected! Bottle tap at Indie Alehouse, Toronto
