Bottle. Pours light golden with some lace. Aroma is peach, green apple, honey, pear skin. Flavor are these with more honey, pale malt one dimensional, hop forward notes mostly of pine, fairly dry bitter end. Feel is watery in body and sticky on the palate. OK....nice, sure, but doesn’t work. Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 4, 2013
In short: A harsh uber-sweet golden ale without interest.Cirrhosis (1283) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 22, 2013
How: Bottle 22oz, consumed when many months of age, bottle from mcberko, thanks a lot Matt.
The look: Almost clear amber-golden body topped by a medium off-white head.
In long: Nose is sweet, toasted, somewhat estery, surprising spruce, lots of phenols, some caramel. Body doesn’t feel very rich for a beer of this size. Taste is a let down. A load of toasted candy sugar and then some more. A strong peppermint flavor with some phenols on the side. Crunchy sweet dried fruits. Honey and a bit of caramel. Mild alcohol heat. A lot of spruce that leads to a ’sprucy’ bitter finish. Not sure what they were aiming for with this beer, it has all the downsides of a monster beer without the richness and depth. I think I’m abnormally polite even by Canadian standard when I said “excuse me” to myself after drinking this beer.
Crystal clear amberish honey brown with a rocky cap, looks off for the style. Smells weirdly neat. Way hoppier then I was expected, there is so much going on in the nose but I can’t name any of it. I like it, I like it alot. WHAT ARE THESE SMELLS?? Heavilly carbonated!! Same problem with taste......... so much going on but can’t name a thing. Hoppy it is, I guess Belgian yeast, peach, things and stuff. This completly reminds me of Laganetus SUCKS. Proper spelling is hard and is not important. I can drink the shit out of this beer. What the hell are the flavours??? I’m stuck on fuzzy peach, yeast, and awesome. I will buy more. SudsMcDuff (8541) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - SEP 25, 2013

-walk in a straight line & carry shit
A typical day in the life of an ant.
Poured this with a decent off-white, foamy head and a little lace. Color is a slightly hazy, medium amber. Aroma is hop, malt, fruit. Flavor is like nose, hints of the gin. sweet is in front, followed by a hint of tang. body/carbonation are good. Finish is like flavor, not that long and only a suggestion of the power. Decent stuff; I’d have more.

Sampled at the Great Canadian Beer Festival. Rich and boozy Belgian with funky yeast overtones and a bright, fruity hop character. Long, lasting bitterness. A potent sipping beer and a fine North American spin on an Old World favourite. One2remeber (253) - Bucktown, Ohio, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Bottle. Ian @ Brouwers.
Grassy, medicinal, ivory, gummy, white pine.
Huge American hop flavor gushing out of a Belgian sweet malts. Sugary sweetness. Pear.
Hinterland but higher quality. cstuartj (1020) - Washington, USA - AUG 14, 2013
On tap. Pours a cloudy gold with a big thick head, laces well. Nose is very spicy, yeast, pepper, alcohol. Taste is good but not fully balanced, citrus notes are for front, pepper, spicy and Belgian yeast jump in during the finish. Light slightly sweet finish. Pretty dang good.

(22oz bottle) Puchased at Hillside Liquors. Pours a small white foam that settles to the center of the glass atop a light orange. Orange rind, pine resin. Very yummy. Very citrus hops and biting finish. Incredibly enjoyable. 300monsters (17) - victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 1, 2013
Poured from 650ml bottle, clear golden amber colour. Grapefruit and juicy, ripe peach on the nose. Mild grapefruit, ripe peach again and maybe a little orange peel to the taste, just enough carbonation to tickle the tongue. Perfect mouthfeel. It’s like a hoppy E.S.B. but with Belgian yeast. Very interesting, incredibly tasty, a good place for the hop head and the belgian lover to meet in the middle and share a good beer.
