Pours a lovely straw that is almost gold with an enormous, prefect pristine white head that pours at three or four fingers and very slowly and clumpily settles to two.
Excellent retention; lots of sticky lacing.
Doughy with quite a bit of citrus. Lots of sweet, spicy yeast aromas, orange, herbs, nutmeg. Very nice.
Sweet, spicy, and hoppy. Lime rind, soap, pine, dirt, candi sugar, fresh grass, herbs.
Lovely. Creamy, velvety, coating feel with a medium body and a lingering herbal hoppy tingle.
Fabulous Belgian IPA.
This is a fine beer in general and would rank up with Houblon Chouffe in my book as far as this style goes. Pours gorgeous and is about as close to perfect as you can get in every way visually, it is very Belgian smelling and only hints at being hoppy. The taste is far more bitter than the nose but it still isn't super dry. It has a very herbal, medicinal European hop profile to it, though since the bottle lists American varieties maybe this is partially due to its being past its prime. Either way, I have never gotten to try a really fresh one but hope to someday.
Will have again; worth making an effort to try.

From a 750 ml bottle into a tulip. Bottle dated 2012-10-14 consumed 2013-09-28.
A: pours a slightly hazy golden with a high three finger head that slowly breaks down leaving fantastic lacing.
S:: has that Charlevoix nose, sweet breast yeast, fruits and there is hops present as well.
T: follows the nose, but the hops come forward more. The combination of hops and spice and sweetness is nice.
M: medium carbonation good mouth feel...creamy.
O: a nice beer, different than any Belgian IPA I've had. It is sweeter and fruitier. This is a second chance review for this beer, the first time I had it it was right after enjoying a Hibernus and it didn't stack up. Now, I have enjoyed it quite a bit and it was a pleasure to enjoy this with friends.

On tap at Vices & Versa.
Pours a shiny glossy golden colour. Head is beige, nice lacing but head doesn't quite retain. Pretty good.
Banana, cinnamon, sugar-poached fruit, and star anise all vying for attention on the nose. Interesting.
Taste is all Belgian. Plenty of spice esters on there. Pepper, star anise and clove with some brown sugar, espresso and maybe some raisins towards the back, plus vanilla on the finish. Not a bad heavy Belgian character. Pretty sweet.
A bit foamy in the mouth. Very dry on the back.
Decent beer. Lots of spice, fair sweetness, but a bit too dry which doesn't quite fit in with the rest of the palate.

Found this in Montreal at Au Coin Duluth, a little hole in the wall convenience store off St Denis with an impressive craft beer selection packed into a few coolers in the back.
Brought it to a house party and impressed quite a number of people including many locals who were totally unaware that there were some real beer choices in Canada
This is a heady, sweet, fruity elixer with floral hoppiness. The alcohol is not obvious so it can be easily overindulged.
This is a standing "want" as I don't know when I'll get back to that area.

750ml bottle, split. Scooped up in B.C.
Served in Pfriem chalic - lovely golden body with a huge sticky white froth. Really nice looking. An overall excellent beer, minus some of that green bottle tang (god damnit) - bright, orange zest, fresh cut grass, grapefruit, peach, bubblegum, belgian yeast. Great!
