12oz bottle poured into a snifter

A: Golden hue with a 1 finger white fizzy head. Lots of visible carbonation

S: Wheat, belgian yeast, spice and candied sugar

T: Belgian yeast, some tropical fruit (mostly banana). Spice, sugar. Kinda like a hefeweizen but not as dry or clovey. Slightly sweet, dry finish

M: Medium bodied. Crisp, clean and dry. There is a lingering sweetness. Nicely carbonated

D: Very easy to drink, no real indication that this is 9%. Definitely a regular go to beer for me

750 mL bottle best by 10/07/13

A - Light yellow amber with a two finger white head. Good lacing. Slightly cloudy.

T - Sweet and spicy. Little bit of alcohol. A bit medicinal, with a touch of fermented banana.

M - Light body, lots of carbonation. Surprisingly not cloying.

O - Just brilliant. Sweet, complex, and refreshing with well-hidden booze.

Poured a hazy, golden yellow body with a large white, fluffy head, gorgeous lacing clinging to the glass. Spicy aroma, full of fruity notes, yeast and phenols. Taste was tremendously complex. Spicy, peppery, full of sweetness and fruit. Alcohol is nicely hidden. Slight bitterness, slick mouthfeel. Some peach and pears. Wonderful beer.

Appearance is light orange and opaque with fluffy head. The smell is fruity and medicinal.

Taste is very sharp of citrus and sweetness, has a grainy almost wheat taste. Smooth, crisp and full bodied. After taste is sweet, alcoholic and a bit sour.

Very flavorful beer, with 9% abv. it has all the good traits of the European Tripel beers. Good for special occasions.

Orange-gold, a finger of white frothy head that doesn't totally stay but keeps coming up in the center of the goblet to retain a thin layer. An occasional small pour from the bottle brings it back up nicely.

Smells of orange juice, red apples, sugar cookies, spice, herbs, earth. Appetizing.

Taste matches smell, along with rock sugar, orange peel, sweet white bread. Delicious, and drinkable. Finishes with orangey freshness and alcohol.

Mouthfeel is creamy, with a bit of nice oiliness, but can get too fizzy.

This Quebecoise is fantastique. I wish I had a bowl of poutine to go with it!

Big frothy white head atop a cloudy golden straw yellow out of a 750. Maybe it's just the warming weather, but I get vanilla ice cream and hints of orange sherbert right of the bat. It's also got a touch of caramel, banana, and clove. The taste is similar to the smell, only better. It was also missing the orange. Peppery and spicy vanilla followed by sweet caramel. Cloves tend to be more relevant here as well. Some warming alcohol, but the vanilla really plays well with that aspect. Very smooth and creamy. I did prefer this when it was on the cooler side, but all in all it was very good.

Poured into a wine glass

Appearance: Light straw yellow with about two fingers worth of white fluffy head.

Aroma: the first thing that comes to mind is pears. Subtle spicy and citrus notes, but pear is the predominate aroma.

Taste: For 9% alcohol it is very well hidden, but that could be a bad thing because it is also exceptionally drinkable. It is a touch spicy and finishes dry. There are citrus notes that compliment the spiciness derived from the yeast.

Mouthfeel: Very light and lively. There is a lot of carbonation in this beer, which makes it very drinkable and very refreshing.

Overall: An excellent beer from our brothers from the north. I would recommend this as a nice summer beer, but beware the alcohol; it can sneak up on you.
