330 ml blue bottle purchased from LCBO for $2.25 CDN. Served cold into a Keith's pint glass.

Appearance - hazy pale yellowy color. Capped by just over a finger of fluffy white with fairly impressive retention. Moderate sticky lacing left behind.

Smell- peaches, apricots and some lemon zest. Not a ton else, but a well rounded fruity aroma.

Taste - pretty much the same as the nose, plenty of juicy peach and apricot flavor, with a touch of lemon coming through. Very refreshing and no bitterness whatsoever.

Mouthfeel - lively feel, relatively watery, with a slightly dry finish.

Overall - a different, very unique wit, that personally is a great beer in the summer, as the peach and apricot combination really stands out. Also bonus points for high level of accessibility.

Purchased at the LCBO for $2.75 for a 473ml can. Served at 4deg C in a challis

A- 4.0- Opens well and pours a nice white head that stays a bit. Unfiltered and very light

S- 3.75- Rather light. Coriander. Sour

T- 3.25- Lemon hits you right away. Citrus galore. Unbalanced

M- 3.25- Sour. Bit over carbonated

O- 3.57- Not much more than this. Ok white but way too much citrus for me.

Food Pairing

This ok white beer went well with..... Corned beef sandwiches. Nice pickle on the side

Enjoy

330 ml blue bottle served in a snifter.

Aroma: lihtly spicy with a pronounced note of ripe arpicot.
Orange and apricot dominate the flavor, with some wheat underneath. Very good sweet/tart mix, with faint bitterness in the aftertaste.

Soft lively carbonation nicely complements the medium-light body.

O: a soft, French vounterpart to Magic Hat #9

to me this one always has an unnatural flavor sort of a perfume after taste, not my cup of tea and I had given it plenty of chances, I have a friend that always has a fridge full of it.
