Bottle, shared with TylerDurden. Medium golden, not a lot of head generation. Lovely floral aroma, rosewater, cut flowers, sweet yeast. The palate fails to deliver on the aromatics, sweet candyish pale malts, doughy yeast, with a boozy finish that is coarse and edging toward hot. Not bad in smaller doses, but I struggled to finish even my half-bottle. Beersiveknown (5296) - NORTHERN IRELAND - AUG 25, 2014

lightly hazy pale blonde with floral rose/turkish delight aroma, gentle spritzy carbonation, medium body, light lemon zest and rich fruity finish. Clean and elegant
Bottle, thank you Colin! Nice golden yellow with an intriguing haze. Lovely effervescent fruity aroma strong citrus, floral, wild berry - lovely stuff. Taste - medium soft and carbonated body. Quite sweet, some berry, and lots and lots of alcohol. Almost a bit cloying. Lots going on but does not deliver on promise of the aroma - I think the nuances of the rosehips are better served a few points lower in alcohol percentage. Damn enjoyable though. northropfrye (3639) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 21, 2014
Served cold in a tulip glass as per instructions on the bottle. Bright light yellow body with some thin soapy head, not much retention or lacing and quite a bit of sediment. Citrus and kind of a diapery yeast, raw dough, slightly rotting strawberries, but I mean all this in a good way. I liked the aroma. Taste is semi-bitter, and a touch of tripel-esque spritziness, but not a bit too subdued. Abv well masked. Overall, an okay beer. kassner (1669) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2014
I put this on as a wheat Ale though it has malts. It really did not fit any of the catagories offered by RateBeer. Light in color with a nice head, lots of cirus and sweetness, and dangerously smooth for such a big beer.

Not really that impressed, nice but not that distinctive from a pale ale. some subtile notes and drinkable.
650ml bottle from the LCBO in Peterborough, Ontario. Hazy golden in colour with a thin lasting white head, light lacing. The aroma is floral, light citrus, sweet malts. The flavour is of floral hops, lemon citrus, some sweetness, light alcohol. Lightly bitter mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, some hops, alcohol warmth.

Bomber. pours a hazy golden to honey colour. Aroma is interesting, floral and hoppy citrus notes with some grainyness, some malty or biscuit like notes and a little honey. ON the palate I find this one boozy on the finish, sports a medium body and it is a fairly interesting brew flavour wise with hoppy/grassy bitterness and sort of sweeter malty or honey character and some resin. I’m happy i tried this one, but man that whiskey heat creeps up on you. Christpuncher (3135) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 15, 2014
not much flavor in this one. bitter hoppy flavor with a strong alcohol finish. pours orangish yellow in color with a tan head. smells like malt. had this one at bad apple. rumproasts (5427) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 10, 2014
bottle. golden yellow with small head. fruity and floral with a dry hoppy bitterness in the finish. mild belgian yeast. pretty nice. hangunder (305) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 9, 2014
Smells nice, citrus /piney hops, floral aromas and sweet malt. Hazy yellow, effervescent and creamy white head. Pretty interesting flavor, upfront some citrusy hops, finishes quite bitter with grassy hoppyness and a lot of biscuity malt. Not overly complex, but an interesting beer. Medium bodied and highly carbonated.
