Cloudy yellow, nice head. Lots of bitterness throughout, not very appropriate for the style, pepper and yeast, hints of dried citrus zest, herbs, farmhouse. Rough mouthfeel. I'd have to pass on more than a sample of this.

Thanks to JLindros for sharing this from our Montreal trip.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice crystal clear golden hue with a thin head that fades to leave light wisps.

S - Aromas of light floral hops, faint Belgian esters, lightly fruity.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, nice Belgian notes, great esters, faint floral fruity hops.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, clean.

O - Overall this beer was tasty, very nice Belgian notes. Tasty.

Bought at The Beer Cellar in Glen Ellyn as a roadie for the train to Chicago. Wish I had 2! Very tasty.

App: Golden yellow with a slight haziness, light soapy head that dies down to a thin film that stick around for a while. Its a pretty presentation, typical of a belgian ale.

Nose: Clove, pepper, a bit of banana, peach, apricot, white grapes, papaya, white bread very tropical and complex with a slight acidic edge reminiscent of a white wine with some added horse blanket, wet towel, barnyard funky notes that elevates this beer adding even more depth.

Taste: the grapefruit and citrus notes typical of an ipa are more present while still getting those yellow stone fruits and tropical notes. The spicy notes like pepper and clove arent hard to find aswell as that nice funkyness. The bitterness is pleasent. A bit of dankness, pine and grassyness in a dry finish.

This is a masterpiece of a beer with an unusual hop profile full of depth and complexity.
It is highly drinkable. Its the type of beer that you have a hard time putting down.
The malt are suddle in the background, leaving the floor for the hop and the yeast to shine in the spotlight. Very fresh, fruity and spicy while remaining very satisfying and complex. I can't believe i took so long before getting this one. Will buy again, highly recommanded.

(French)

Apparence: Jaune dorée vibrant. Moyennement voilé, avec mousse savonneuse qui se dissipe en un mince film qui demeure présent. Une belle biere sexy and classy.

Nez: Le clous, le poivre et un peu de banane. Les fruits sont a l'honneur avec des notes de pèche, abricots, raisin blanc, de papaye et de mis de pain blanc. Une certaine acidité et des notes funky de ferme, de couverture de cheval mouillée qui vient ajouté un agréable niveau de complexité.

En bouche: Les notes classique d'agrumes tels que le pamplemousse, le citron et l'orange sont plus présente toujours avec des notes de fruits jaunes a noyau qui la diffère de la plupart des IPA. Le clou et le poivre, ainsi que les notes funky sont présentes en bouche également. Une finale avec une amertume moyenne, herbacé avec un peu de sapinage résineux et une touche de "dankness". Quelle belle profondeur. C'est difficile de poser son verre.
