look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Purchased at the LCBO 375ml bottle for $2.75. Served at 6deg C in a draught glass

A- Opens well. Pours cloudy and dark gold. Not much head at all

S- Very good. Orange and heavy malt tones.

T- A bit down here compared to smell. Hints of citrus and pine but not like a Nordic pale ale.

M- Dry and crisp. Ok by me. Finishes rather long

O- Pretty good. Had a bomber saved for a while now but found 4 of these little guys on the shelf so I grabbed them. Pretty good buy

Food Pairing

This wonderful little ale went well with... Monte Cristo sandwiches

Enjoy!

A%3A Pours a clear peach colour with 3 fingers of off-white head which quickly dissipated to a think film over the surface with plenty of lacing. %0A%0AS%3A Lightly spiced Belgian yeast with white pepper paired with overripe bananas. Strong malty backbone with a balance of hops. %0A%0AT%3A The spiciness of the yeast is much more apparent than was detected in the scent. Great malt backbone with a slight hoppy bitterness on the finish. %0A%0AM%3A Light to medium bodied with high carbonation. Refreshing and clean. %0A%0AO%3A Another great brew from TD which we are now lucky enough to get in BC.
