4.15/5  rDev +1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Fluffy off-white head on top of mostly clear, golden brew. Has a thick, sticky lace.

All the usual suspects (malt, yeast, clove, banana) in the aromatic lineup. A bit of oddball grass and some floral notes are almost overlooked.

Light and fruity with pear, white grape and green apple. Caramel, grain and spice are in the background conspiring. Alcohol only becomes discernible at the very end, even though it's obviously right under your nose.

A very subtle beer with just enough champagne essence to make it light-hearted but with enough beer muscle to keep up the attitude and get the job done before it strides off perfectly into the distance making you reflect on its genius.

750 ml bottle. 2012 vintage. Poured a solid rocky cap of white head, really solid retention. Colour is a musky light brown, slightly golden with a lot of visible carbonation. 4

S – light spicy floral aromas, biscuit malt, apple and soft fruit notes, cherry, orange, fresh herbs, grass/meadow character with an appetizing sweetness. Gets a bit spicy as it warms. Some yeast notes emerge. 4

T – a initial crisp grape character, then tending towards lychee and kiwi, with a slight tartness, like unripe berries or pineapple but sweet enough to be really tasty, a bit more fruity sweetness, pear, slightly bready malts. A mild bitterness on the finish, with more juicy berry notes, some wheat notes with a bit of a subtle creaminess and a very fresh floral and berry character. Finish is toasty, full-bodied and has a lingering grapevine note. 4.5

M – soft and creamy, lots of body and feel to it but super drinkable, no alcohol presence and the wheat creaminess really soothes this out, but a hit of tartness is really refreshing. Quite a lot of carbonation actually, vivacious on the palate. A refreshing beer, with a lingering vineous aftertaste and a bit of dryness. 4

A really delicious beer, the hops provide a full delicious taste ontop of the really solid malt base, not as tropical punch as NS can be, this had more soft kiwi, lychee, pineapple and a slight tart aspect. Balance is perfect and it drinks very well. A tasty and complex beer that drinks much lighter than the abv. Would make an ideal summer beer. I would tone down the carbonation but otherwise enjoyed this, balance is quite good and the tartness works well with the wheat, another winner from this brewery.

750 ml swanky bottle picked up from LCBO for $8.95 CDN. Only viwede at one LCBO so picked up two bottles over the past two weeks.

Appearance - a generous 3 fingers of head is poured revealing a hazy golden brown liquid in the oversized wine glass. The creamy white head has some significant staying power too.

Smell - Dark fruits, toffee and other malted flavours dominate. Some pear and grape scents are also present but barely noticeable.

Taste - Again the dark fruits and malted flavousr are the hero here. Caramel is detectable and there is some bitterness after the sip.

Mouthfeel - Creamy smooth, very easy to forget that this is 7.3%. Quite tasty overall with its medium body and sweet finish. A very dry finish right at the very end contrasts with the rest of the mouthful.

Overall - A very fine beer worth trying a couple of times because well, it was new and I hadn't seen it anywhere. In the future would probably buy other beers before this one, especially since I enjoy the Weihenstepahner Vitus and the Schneider-Weisse Aventinus (Tap 6) to all be in a similar vein. Nonethless a very enjoyable beer.

Been hanging onto this for about year, but today seemed like as good a day as any!
A - clear bright golden, two solid fingers of fluffy white head, plenty of spotty lacing all around
S - yeasty grape phenol aroma, buttery light toast, mild spices, very pleasant and yet mellow aromas
T - light grape medicine phenols, touch of spice, hints of banana and mellon, buttery bread maltiness, the flavours are generally present but very mellow, makes me think the aging has contributed to this
M - light body with lightish carbonation, silky smooth and gentle on the palate, finishes slightly crisp and slightly dry
O - a tasty brew that I suspect has mellowed with nearly 2 years of aging, delicate flavours and super easy sipping, a great treat on a hot summer eve

Bottle #31244

Appearance. Pours a hazy yellow gold with two fingers of frothy white head, decent retention.

Smell. Green apples, clove and fruity Belgian yeast, banana, some light wheaty malt, and faint whiffs of pineapple and lime.

Taste. Fruity Belgian yeast, clove, some banana and earthy hops, just a bit of orchard and tropical fruits.

Mouthfeel. Medium-light body, soft medium carbonation.

Overall. Nice stuff, but not as nice as the Vitus I had recently.
