Nose is yeast focused, with light fruits and som bubblegum. The coriander is present lightly. Flavour is similar, with a bready malt flavour joining in. Simple but pleasant.

Lovely pour with pillowy head. Floral and spicy aroma. Flavour is heavier to spicy corriander with a background hop presence. Malts are slightly fruity and blend well with the spicing and hopping. Very drinkable and appropriately named table beer

CBA 2016 Gold!

Pours a nice head, some retention, great lace.

Aroma is spicy with underlying tropical fruit.

Great spice flavour that's not too phenolic. Some candied tropical fruit, light biscuit, restrained bitterness.

Great mouthfeel for its weight.

Appearance: Hazy golden straw. Topped with a decent enough fluff of white head. Dissipates fairly quickly and leaves behind some hints of lace and a Pangaea of surface foam.

Aromatics: Very up front with the yeast and bread with some leafy florals and hints of coriander spice which is almost too subtle to pick out if you didn't read the ingredients. There is a mild effluvium of citrus that floats about as well drawing all the aromas together.

Taste: Complex blend of pale malts and yeast with the coriander which is more pronounced in the flavour than the nose. There is a slight graininess and the floral-ness carries through the bitter.

Mouth: Carbination appears to be minimal, but has a way of snapping and popping with each sip. I'd say light side of medium body, and the hoppy bitter and spice hold hands at the finish and loiter a bit.

Overall: A great example of a Belgian, I think I'll name him Mathéo. He is a great companion, easy to get along with. Enjoy his company and embrace his friendship. He can be a bit cynical and bitter, but his sweet kindness more than balances him out.

Pairing: The flavours don't really jump out here, it is a fabulous complexity of flavours which makes pairing both easy and hard... you don't want to over do it. I'm going to say keep to simple one/two sided flavour profiles that are not specifically on taste - for example pretzels are probably too salty. I think a simple pasta and sauce, chicken with a wild mushroom alfredo, or spring green based pesto with bowtie pasta.

Thanks to Derek for this one. Poured from a bomber.

A completely hazy light yellow body fills the glass, average retention and lacing though. Bit of pineapple in the flavor with Belgian fruity esters, light spices and dry lemon. Quite refreshing.

This is a mighty agreeable beer. Dageraad has their act together, and Burnabarian is another fine example. If you are a fan of this style, you will be happy with this brew. It is light on the nose and palate, with plenty of Belgian yeast, sweetness and floral notes. It's not my "cup of tea", but I definitely understand why it has received such a positive reception on BA.

650ml bomber poured into tulip 21/12/15

A clear bright yellow liquid with very fine suspended particles upon a closer look, a thumbs width of loose soapy head slowly falls to a thick film leaving lots of random lace

S grassy and floral hops with heaps of coriander and pepper, some citrus and bread round things out, not much complexity but its smells strong

T noble notes and a little citrus mix with the nose, plenty of flavor for a session brew, this is how a Belgian would brew a pilsner

M light, soft and fluffy, has a crisp and nearly clean finish with just a little grass

O I could just pour this stuff into my face, I'm loving the Belgian yeast with a heavy blast of noble hops, one of the more drinkable brews I've had recently and I wish I knew about this stuff when the hot sun was overhead

I'm thinking I need to get better acquainted with this brewery, I love Belgian styles and their reputation just keeps growing in this area

Nice clean yeasty coriander but not much complexity; so nice and fresh, balanced, clean delicate finish, just enough bitterness to give it backbone; a surprisingly full bodied beer considering it's only 4.5% alc; this is a great lower alcohol beer.

650ml bottle, awesome to see more of this Belgian-happy Lower Mainland brewery's products making their way to Alberta. Cool, I guess, ode to their hometown in the choice of name here.

This beer pours a hazy, pale golden yellow colour, with one fat finger of puffy, finely foamy, and mildly bubbly chalky white head, which leaves some random geographical formation lace around the glass as it slowly settles.

It smells of bready, rather doughy pale malt, sedate coriander, a further wet white cracker thing, and plain leafy, earthy, and somewhat floral noble hops. The taste is grainy, bready pale malt, more earthy yeast, a still subtle coriander and white pepper spice, and more leafy, weedy, and increasingly floral hop bitters.

The carbonation is quite understated and yet efficient at tickling my willing palate, the body medium-light in weight, and fairly smooth, the proclaimed oats ably fulfilling their part of the contract, you can bet your bottom dollar. It finishes a bit on the sweet side, the multifaceted malt persisting well, while the spice and hops spend their remaining time searching for the punch-out clock.

Once again, this brewery nails the Belgian style that they're aiming for - here, it's an easy-drinking, well-flavoured table beer, one which belies the lower than 'standard' ABV. My only problem, if I must, is the incongruous ambiance of a rainy September day - though that should take absolutely nothing away from the quality inherent in Burnabarian.

One of the most flavourful session beers to come out of BC this year! Fantastic belgian yeast character, I would have easily guessed this had 5.5 or 6.0% ABV, but at 4.5%, well done!
