On tap at Hopaholic. Classic bubblegum aroma. Sweet almond but then comes the finish, classic deep heavy hop bitterness. Great Belgian ale with loads of hops, typical Stone. Cool oobawa (1498) - Tennessee, USA - MAR 15, 2017
Here’s the thing: put enough Centennial hops in your giant witbier and eventually you get a pint that tastes a whole helluva lot like fancy handsoap. All the pleasant wit notes are present--lavender-ish floral sweetness, a mild citric undertone, grassy clove complexity--yet it all gets smashed to pieces by the unreasonably bitter finish. Maybe fresh the hops are bright enough to mesh well with the heavy, honey-like wit soul, but aged the beer takes on a soapy, medicinal finish, much too IBU-laced for such an otherwise nuanced recipe. Looks good, texture’s strong, smells sweet and saison-ish with spicy citrus underneath, but not very fun to drink. CzechTex (160) - - MAR 15, 2017
On tap. Much more meh than other reviews led me to expect. Expensive without the weight to back it up. OK, but hardly stellar. Biting on the tongue,lingering and somewhat unpleasant aftertaste. My first and last of this variant. Tiger_08 (138) - Sarnia, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 3, 2017
Pours bright yellow and dark yellow heart with thick bubbly white head and good carbonation. Settles to a thin head of bubbles leaving good lacing. Aroma is sweeter than most Belgian ales, citrus and banana. Crisp, light, soft mouthfeel with a smooth finish that is well balanced - not dry but not too wet. Citrus and yeast flavour, orange covers the alcohol well with a sharp peppery finish that lingers and balances well with the Belgian style. A perfectly balanced, unique Belgian ale.

On tap at hopaholic. Clear yellow colour. Nose is cellery. Taste is low bitterness, decent cellery notes. Nice and very similar to tripel karmeliet. LinusStick (3473) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 1, 2017
A damn good Belgian style beer from an American brewery. Typically I HATE American attempts at Belgian beers, but this one tasted very authentic. Aroma was yeasty and light. Bubblegum and light fruits in there as well. Pour was a nice hazy light gold with a one finger white head. Taste was very Belgian. Very yeasty with strong bubblegum, apricot and peach. Not too sweet as this style tends to get. Good carbonation. Nice beer Cuso (8725) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 1, 2017
Tap at craft b33r gallery. Golden color with huge white head. Aroma of yeast, malt, candies, light citrus hops. Taste, candies, malt, spices, yeast, very light citrus hops. Good. bunget (994) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 25, 2017
Bottle. Clear golden body, big, white, fluffy head with good retention and lots of lacing. Aroma of yeast, sugar, pears, coriander, apricot jam and ginger snaps. Taste of yeast, sugar, orange candies, ginger, hints of peppers and lots of herbs. Delightful. Metalchopz (3419) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 24, 2017
2016 release, from the LCBO. Pours a clean golden colour with a big white head, good retention and foamy lacing. Belgian Ale yeast aromas with lots of banana notes that come out eventually, and hints of apples. Some sharp bitterness in the middle, but not too much dryness. Yet. It does seem to grow. Spices, banana, alcohol, bubblegum and hops. A good Belgian strong ale.
