I tried this beer on December 28, 2007 at "Smokeless Joe's" in Toronto. The white bottle caught my eye. This beer poured a dark murky brown with a generous tan coloured head. The aroma was strongly yeasty with a fruit backdrop, possibly plums or raisins. The mouthfeel was medium bodied, and very champagny. The flavour was malty, yeasty, and slightly sour.

Darkish, murky, russet brown, with amber edges, topped by a two finger cushion of light khaki head that laces nicely. Nose is tangy and oaky, with caramelized brown sugar, yeast, light fruits, and faint pepper. Intense malt flavors up front: sugary sweet tropical fruits (banana, pineapple juice, kiwi) dominate, but are somewhat tempered by a toasted bitterness. Sweetness easily wins out. Brown sugar and caramel flavors mix with yeast. Light spiciness noticeable near the finish. Finish is sweet, yeasty, and very warming. Full-bodied with a near syrupy consistency toward the finish. Somehow avoids being cloying, but very sweet nonetheless. Oh, and quite good!
