Found this in the back of my fridge. Forgot to drink it. Oops. Figured I would crack it and see how it was. Crazy carbonation hence it not being the freshest beer. Think it was bottled in April. Other then the carbonation,after it settled it was still pretty damn good. Fruity aroma,subtle hop flavors with a nice golden biscuity flavor to it. Would have loved to drank this fresh. Next time I will.

Pours lightly hazy straw color. Nice white head that fades quickly. Smells of grass. Taste is nice. Light hop flavor up front with a soft Belgian yeast biscuit. This is a beer I'm really diggin for summer. My new favorite ( until tomorrow).

Pours a golden straw color with a decent sized white head, fades at a fast rate with little lacing on the glass, slight haze to it.

Smell has a nice floral aroma, strong in hops with scents of pine and cut grass, sweet malt in the background to counterbalance, not sure what elderflower smells like but it's likely in that floral bouquet.

Taste is light and refreshing throughout, hops hit right away, mostly pine and citrus, as it fades the sweetness of the malt comes through but not overly so, carbonation is quite ample but very very soft in the mouth, a very easy summer drinker.

CBC makes some solid beers, and unique styles, so hopefully this is fun and well done, for a hot muggy summerrrrr... I mean spring night.

Pours a huge fluffy 2 finger creamy head that fades at a med to slower pace, thick and creamy leaving some messy lacing, crystal clear golden pale color.

Nose is nice, bright and floral, mild zesty citrus hop notes, nice citrusy and fruity hop presence, quite floral and flowery with straight up elderflowers in there, a little berry like boisonberry or elderberry thing, nice spices thanks to Belgian yeast esters in there, and hints of some phenols as well, a little bit of a golden sweet malt profile as well, and hint of a tart lemony presence.

Taste brings sweet malts out front, not really sweet just seems like it will be, with golden malts, toasty and light malty in general, a little wheat creamy feel and toasted wheatgerm almost. THen flowery, elderflowers and a dandelion like presence, with the Belgian yeast kicking in right behind it, mild esters with fruity notes and some mild spices, hint of phenols that fade like they were just a distant memory to start with. Quickly hops wash over, with mild lemon zest, little citrusy, and more mild generic berry fruit as well as a hint of citrus mostly lemon zest, the esters seem to bring a little pear skin and apple notes. Hops bring a touch of vinous grape skin notes late, with a little more lemon zest and touch of spiciness, finishing with a mild bitterness which was lighter than I expected as it seemed to be building up, mild dry but sticky finish, pretty quick finish too.

Mouth is med bod, a bit soft, with nice small bubble carb.

Overall pretty interesting, about what I expected all around mostly. Elderflower didn't overpower thankfully, nice Belgian yeast profile with fruity esters of apple pear, and mild spices even, decent lemon zest, nice berry notes, a bit of malt even coming through, and nice blending of the Nelson hops to marry it all. Pretty enjoyable for a hot summer day I gotta say.

One of the better smelling beers ive encountered. Floral elderberry (without over powering like MagicHats) mixed with some resiny citrus like hops makes for a nasal and oral explosion that follows through with a medium pale body and smooth finish with a pleasant saisony aftertaste that dissipates quickly. Werry werry well done brew.

Serving: 100oz tower split with friends into pint glasses
Served: 15 February 2015

Appearance: Light yellow in color with a foamy white head that leaves massive lacing in the glass. A touch hazy. Looks awesome.

Smell: Very floral aroma, likely from the Nelson Sauvin hops and the elderflowers that are somehow incorporated.

Taste: Superb drinkability here- nice floral hoppiness, with next to no influence from the elderflowers in the beer. I really love the use of Nelson Sauvin here- the hops work perfectly with the sweet malts and provide a very drinkable, relatively sweet brew with a nice hop punch without being abrasive.

Mouthfeel: Not as carbonated as I would have liked, but with enough to facilitate intense quaffability.

Overall: A very delicious beer with a curious hop profile. A sessionable 4.75% kept my group pouring often and drinking fast. A great, underrated brew from CBC.
