Poured from a 473 ml can into a glass mug

Appearance: Foamy inch tall white head that dissipates somewhat slowly and leaves great lacing. Beer is a beautiful copper color.

Aroma: Fairly gentle aroma. Slight aromas of orange and other fruits

Taste: Very flavorful beer. First thing I notice is a hint of tobacco and cinnamon. Mildly creamy mouth feel. Traces of brown sugar.

Aftertaste: Somewhat bitter finish with lingering notes of brown sugar and tobacco.

Overall: A very crisp, refreshing beer that is packed with flavor. I will be returning to this beer every once in a while.

Me living in Quebec I had to try that beer.
The look of a beer is more between orange and yellow
The smell of it is very nice, you have that orange coming out. Very nice smell ! It's gentle and it's fruity. Nice carbonation.
The taste is really surprising. Lots of taste I can feel on my tongue. It has like a cigar paper taste and a brown sugar on the after taste. Don t take me wrong it's a really nice tasting.
So overall would I recommend it ? Damn Yes ! Complete different than those Rickard's, Budweiser, molson dry, blue... It is more expensive, but once in a while you will have a good tasting beer that you can share with some friends.
