On tap at Station HO.ST. From notes.
A - Poured cloudy orange with a two finger fluffy white head. Good lace rings left over and a half finger of retention.
S - Orange, lemon, zesty lemon, grapes.
T - Grassy noble hop, orange, lemon, lovely light hoppiness. Crackers. Mild yeast character.
M - Nice carbonation, medium body, nice orange finish with some dryness.
O/D - Light but aggressive hoppy Belgian ale. Very nice stuff. Good hop character with nice Belgian qualities and easy drinking. Simple, but quite complex. Really enjoyed this one.
Serving type: on-tap

On-cask at Station Ho.St in Montreal.
Beer is a slightly cloudy dirty gold colour. A frothy off-white head on top.
Lots of light fruits in the nose. Tropical scents, as well as apple and other fruits that I would sooner expect in a Belgian Pale. Nice scent.
Taste contains light fruits, again with a tropical bent. Apple, pineapple, mango. However, the fruit flavours lack any brightness- they are dulled somewhat. Bready and yeasty flavours cut through. Some spices are present as well. A bit herbal. Quite bitter for the style.
Medium bodied, low natural carbonation. Cask is not the right treatment for this beer. It comes across as heavy and sluggish. Needs more carbonation, in my opinion.
Overall, decent but not great. I think this beer would be much better on tap or bottled. Cask does not work for it.
