look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Hazy, copper-bronze with a big head, good retention and lace.

Huge hop aroma of tangerine, mango, papaya and lychee, with a hint of sulfur. Some of my favourite hops here.

Taste is very hop-forward as well, with some underlying biscuity malt. Pleasant bitterness. Incredibly well-balanced and it hides the alcohol well.

Smooth moderate body has only a slight hop acidity.

Thanks VincentGD01!

Can: Poured a pale golden color ale with medium size white foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of huge floral hops undertones with light residual sugar notes. Taste is a great mix of huge hops floral undertones with some residual sugar notes and subtle cereal notes. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. Nice creamy lager with nice hops presence. A little bit too sweet for my taste and I think I actually prefer the regular version.

Yes a hoppy lager. Quaffable. Can from a Quebec trading partner. Its good, but neither here nor there in style. Taste like a lot of other beers from the region.

Service: Can
Canned: No date, but fresh.

Pours a nearly turbid peachish color with three fingers of puffy white head that settles to a soapy finer, scummy lacing and decent retention. (4)

Mango, guava, papaya, kine bud, pine tar. (4.25)

Big weedy/tropical flavor that tapers into a resinous finish with a little hint of alcohol solventy-ness. (4.25)

Medium body/carbonation, well-hidden alcohol, soft and fairly clean (though I might not immediately peg it as a lager if I drank it blind). (4.25)

Wow, this is one fine adult beverage!
I think that I may have been a little too hasty opening it as it tastes a little green but regardless it is very, very good! Better than tasting old, I suppose.
Mango and weed with some pine pollen thrown in for good measure, some crackery malt. Easy drinkin', hidden 8.6, juicy as all get at, soft, great! I am excited for these guys to get on their feet a little. I would dig dates on the cans, but they are still super small. We'll see how long that lasts once people start trying this one. (4.25)
