750ml Bottle from the Quebec SAQ for $8

Appearance - Slightly hazy golden yellow colour with a large size fizzy white coloured head. There is a very high amount of carbonation showing and there is some decent lacing. The head lasted for around 4-5 minutes.

Smell - Breads/grains, clove/coriander, hops, lemons

Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste breads/grains mixed with some lemon and some clove/coriander. There is also some hop and corn flavours. It ends with a nice balanced bittersweet aftertaste.

Overall - A well crafted delicious very drinkable beer. Had my bottle while sitting on a patio on a warm evening and it was perfect. I haven't tried the non special edition of the beer, so I don't know how much better it is.. but this is a winner for me.

Pours a cloudy pale yellow with lively carbonation leaving a thick white collar. Smells of lemon and white pepper. Very lively and effervescent. A touch of grass and spiciness in the nose as well.

The taste is similar, but a bit more muted. The lemon picked up in the nose is imagined at best on the palate. The flavor begins with candied sugar and gives way to a peppery and spicy hop finish. Very dry and snap quick finish. Would make for a very versatile pairing with food, but lacks depth and complexity. It is thought to judge the balance between well executed simplicity and complexity found in other beers.

A smooth Belgian ale with stronger lemon tones than others, though not so much that it hijacks the experience. Nice even profile with fairly even consistency. I mean, it's an "okay" ale for an anniversary release, but not something that's really blowing me away. Very nice drinker though. Smooth.
