Hazy gold,minimal head. Neutral nose.Spicy yeast,sweet wheat malt palate.Medium strength lasting hop finish. Alcohol notes
On tap at the brewpub. Deep gold with minimal head. Coriander, green apple, orange peel, grassy hops. Tangy sweet and spicy. Heavy on the yeast and boozy. Very flat and a little thin. jonas (7748) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - FEB 24, 2015
Bottle. Cloudy golden, low head. Fruity Belgian yeast notes. Medium light body, feels a tad watery - dangerous with that strength. light citric hop play.-fresh, light bubblegum finish. vadie (1256) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 30, 2014
Ce n’est pas une blonde, plutôt un pauvre example d’une bière belge. Un peu fruité avec un peu d’épices et aussi un peu sucré. Pas mal mince pour le style. walter231231 (1) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 27, 2014 does not count
Disappointing. Tried this a couple of days after having a couple of delicious Belgian tripel style beers from Vancouver. Was excited to have a couple of local breweries playing with the style. This had a sour taste, but not interesting like a lambic. It was very bland, none of the expected Belgian mouth feel. Very one dimensional and the taste was not very interesting.

This was bought a few months ago so it may not be a fair representation of how the beer is now, but it’s mildly sour. Other than that it’s an ok representation of a Belgian strong, though extremely simple, hardly any phenols, mainly esters, hazy orangish yellow, a lot more sweetness and less hops in the flavour than others have been saying.

650ml bottle pours a cloudy golden color with a finger of white head that settles quite quickly leaveing only a few spots of lacing. Aroma is cereal grains with some light fruits and grassy hops. Taste is malty sweet with some light fruitiness and a grassy hop bitterness. Light to medium bodied with some decent carbonation and alcohol is well hidden. The hops just did not quite blend well with this brew or I would have scored it higher. Gerbeer (3844) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 28, 2012
650 ml bottle. Pours a clear gold with no head. Aroma of yeast and coriander with some floral notes. Flavors of coriander and ginger with a lingering bubblegum aftertaste. Matts_Property (837) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 12, 2011
Bottle split with mcberko. Pours clear copper orange with no head at all - surprisingly. Aroma of Belgian yeast, some sweetness, apples, perhaps orange peel. Flavour the same as aroma but with a spicy coriander taste also. Balanced sweetness with the hops, but not overly complex. Still nice to drink though. mcberko (18389) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 12, 2011
650mL bottle, split with Matts_Property, pours a flat golden with an almost non-existent head (unusual for the style). Aroma of sweet apples, sugar cane, bubblegum and yeast. Flavour is quite yeasty, with coriander, apples, pear, bubblegum and candied sugar. Sort of a vanilla and marshmallow-like finish. Palate is a little thin and lacking robustness. Solid, though unremarkable.
