Me living in Quebec I had to try that beer.
The look of a beer is more between orange and yellow
The smell of it is very nice, you have that orange coming out. Very nice smell ! It's gentle and it's fruity. Nice carbonation.
The taste is really surprising. Lots of taste I can feel on my tongue. It has like a cigar paper taste and a brown sugar on the after taste. Don t take me wrong it's a really nice tasting.
So overall would I recommend it ? Damn Yes ! Complete different than those Rickard's, Budweiser, molson dry, blue... It is more expensive, but once in a while you will have a good tasting beer that you can share with some friends.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Type: Pale ale - Blonde
Poured from a 375ml bottle

Appearance: Nice golden color with white head. Left white lacing.

Smell: This has a fairly simple smell - mostly malt to me. After swirling as I drank to kill some carbonation, I detected more grassy and earthy. Slight caramel.

Mouthfeel: Nice body to the mouthfeel - just enough - a bit creamy like.

Taste: Light malt with a bit of wheat and light sweetness and caramel (from a light crystal malt?). Great hop balance in this which pairs well with the level of carbonation and malt flavours. There is definitely a number of different hops - I can definitely detect williamette (on review of their site I see that it has Cascade, Willamette, Golding and Hallertau). This just seems so balanced beautifully.
