[1376-20080523] Tap. Fresh apple malt aroma with toasted grains. Hazy, dark brown amber body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head. Malty fresh fruit base flavour has a nutty grainy background and notes of chocolate. Medium body has a bit of a sour tang. Interesting, quite good, repeatable.

Draught sample at C’est What Spring 2008 Festival of Small Breweries. Clear reddish-amber with a small head. Aroma is mild, slightly spicy, with some malt notes. Medium mouthfeel. Flavour is pleasant and surprisingly warm for 4%, with notes of toasted grain and spice. The flavour lingers a bit, making it more appealing with each sip. blankboy (7662) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 1, 2008
Draught at C’est What. Pours a clear deep amber with a small semi-lasting creamy off-white head. Mild sweet aroma of caramel malt, grain and wheat. Flavour’s grainy with very light hops, some toastyness and a light bitter finish. Average bodied. Not much going on here, it’s just alright. shintriad (701) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 1, 2008
Medium-dark mahogany, flat, bit of an oily head. Skunky rye scents and a wheaty, sour, burnt flavour. Dull, but okay. HogTownHarry (6622) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 27, 2008
Draught. At C’est What. This is a pretty fine offering. Murky light brick red with a decent creamy off-white head. Aroma of dry cocoa and mild fruit, quite sweet and herbal. The taste follows, a nice balance between roast grain, herbal bitterness and sweet yeast. Average body, dry and grainy, with a little spicy bitterness in the finish. Solid.

On tap at C’est What. Grainy wheat. A good dark colour with a little white head and some lace. Mouthpuckering sour, a bit below average mouthfeel wiich is not what I would expect from the style. Not all that enjoyable. Radek Kliber (7320) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - MAY 26, 2008
