Appearance: slightly hazy straw two fingers of fluffy growing white head, excellent retention and well-defined lacing. (4/5) Aroma: floral, honey, citrus, yeast, hay, light funk. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter, light tart. (6/10) Medium-light body turning rapidly watery, prickly carbonation, off-dry moderate bitter and warming finish. (3/5)
I’m not sure what exactly it is about this leaves me a little unimpressed. The initial aromas are promising, similar to other BSPA’s, but no real depth or complexity seems to develop. The medium-light body is initially buoyed by a lively, almost prickly carbonation, but it drops off rapidly to a watery, uninspiring finish. The ABV isn’t overwhelming, but it’s definitely there, almost to the point of slight harshness. Overall, it just feels a little clumsy to me. I also never would have guessed that there was any added citrus, and certainly wouldn’t have been able to pinpoint it as Meyer. It’s fine, and there’s nothing really wrong with it as such, but I’m not sure it’s worth the price tag. (13/20) cfrancis (3446) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 14, 2016
Pours straw gold with a slight haze. Aroma is light floral, touch of honey and yeast. Taste is grassy, yeast, citrus zest and bite. Soft and delicate but a slight bitterness to finish it off.

Ámbar turbio y espuma marfil. Aromas de frita amarilla, jengibre, cítrico ligero y herbáceo. Cuerpo denso con sabor de hierba fresca, fruta amarilla y jengibre con final seco largo. wolffish (660) - Saint-Donat, CANADA - MAY 8, 2016
Le nez est plein de bonnes céréales fraîches, d’agrumes et d’alcool. Cette bière a une amertume citronnée, florale et savonneuse. C’est bon mais ce petit côté "gomme au savon" prend beaucoup de place. Effervescence nulle... patricks110 (2495) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 1, 2016
A decent but pricey beer with a little pinch of lemon zest. Sweet and toasted with a bit of bready, caramel malts. Big and heavy mouthfeel with a small spice blend and a light floral yeast. Nice and easy to sip on but a bit bland. Lanchester (196) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 29, 2016
Pours a hazy, straw color with a quickly dissipating white head. Getting some crisp citrus, hay, and booze on the nose. In the mouth, a refreshing tartness gradually tapers off against a mild malt profile. Lingering bitterness on the tongue with lemony aromatics hanging around. Smooth palate, carbonation level matches well with the style. A nice brew, feel I’d enjoy it much more on a sweltering summer eve though. Quevillon (3089) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - APR 9, 2016
750 ml bottle purchase at Les Marchants de la Bière in Sainte-Thérèse (Quebec) on April 5, 2016. Hazy honey blonde, medium head. Aroma of sweet herbs and pale malt, nice kiss of citrus hops. Citrus and yeast taste, good grapefruit note, nice dry bitter finish. It feels like some super monks made this beer!
