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.

Absolutely delicious!

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!

Drank on-tap at Vices & Versa, Montréal, Quebec
Served in a cervoise

Nearly crystal clear, orangey-amber appearance. A thin white cap of foam topped the liquid. Decent retention. Small blocks of lacing stuck along the top portion of the glass.

The aroma was quite interesting. Hoppy with strong fruity and phenolic Belgian yeast notes. Crisp and bright. Touch of citrus. Lemon was noticeable. Somewhat white wine-like. Slightly floral.

Lots going on in the flavor profile as well. The hops were noticeable right off the bat and seemed punchier here than in the nose. Candied orange peel was apparent. A stiff, sweet, malty backbone balanced out the hops. Lots of fruity Belgian yeast notes. Slightly lemony and tart. Grapefruit and pine notes came through on the finish. Just a touch bitter. At 10% ABV, the alcohol was incredibly well masked.

Although I loved both the aroma and the taste, the mouthfeel really stole the show. The beer was amazingly creamy, plush and smooth. Full bodied for the style. The liquid contained a super fine, tongue blanketing effervescence.

This is a killer version of a Belgian IPA. Quite intense for the style, yet still incredibly balanced. Keep your eye out for this if you are in the Quebec province.

Thanks to Mathieu for the trade. The bottle opens and I see a large spout of foam forming. This reminds me of Beezel, another golden Belgian ale I like.

Pours rich blond into a tulip glass. Immediate subtle scent of grass behind the alcohol and malt. If there are hops on the nose, they are very subtle. Mostly it's that farmy green note that reminds me of saisons.

Taste is very much like a saison. I see the style is supposed to be Belgian IPA, but I really don't get a lot of hops. I get a lot of acidity and brightness, but I wouldn't have guessed it's any sort of IPA. That said, it's very tasty (think saison), spicy, refreshing. The 10% is also a surprise, as it doesn't taste too hot or alcoholic.

Might buy again, especially in the summer.
