The beer was bottled in January 2017. It pours a translucent mahogany colour with a generous off-white rocky head which settles into a long lasting film. The aroma is tart cherries, vinegar, grass, and wheat…..but the tart cherries leave an impression, especially as I was not expecting them! The mouthfeel is medium bodied with abover average carbonation. The flavour is interesting. You taste both the tart fruit notes and vinegar, and then in the background is the traditional chocolate notes you get with a dunkelweizen. I like it….a lot. Not crazy about the price, but the beer is good!

The beer pours a translucent copper colour with a huge light tan that lasts a few moments. The aroma is citrusy hops, light caramel, some toasted nuts, and biscuit notes. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is very citrus forward, especially grapefruit, with hints of cereal malts, caramel, and pine. An enjoyable beer to watch a game with.

The beer pours a hazed medium gold colour with a very thin white film for a ring. Effervescence is active. The aroma is grainy malt, some light fruit notes, yeast, and earthy hops. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, crisp, with average carbonation. The flavour has more in common with a Nortgh American blonde ale than it does with either an English Pale Ale or an American pale Ale. Quite grainy with a slightly sweet start leading to a bitter finish. Aside from the grains and the hops, not a lot of complexity here.

The beer pours a translucent copper colour with a thin white film for a head. Effervescence is decent. The aroma is caramel, biscuit malt, light musty hops, and yeast. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is well balanced with caramel malt, spicy hop, and grains. There is nothing outstanding about this beer, but it is a very good example of a North American take on an EPA.

The beer pours a hazed medium gold colour with a thin white head which sits on the top for a while. The aroma is tropical fruit, grass, light spices, and herbal hop notes. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is sweet fruit, grains, yeast, and citrus peel. I smell no coconut, and I taste no coconut. Yet the can claims it is there. Despite that, this was a good tasting beer!

The beer pours a translucent reddish brown colour with a thick tan coloured head that lasts several minutes. The aroma is roasted malt, molasses, nuts, and herbal hops. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is a tad on the bitter side. It starts off sweet, but the bitterness overpowers it by the time it reaches the throat. So, a tad thin for a Wee Heavy and a little too bitter for the style.

The beer pours a very hazy light gold colour with a generous off-white rocky head. The aroma is pineapple, grass, weak spices, floral hops, and yeast. The mouthfeel is medium to full boidied wirth average carbonation. The flavour is very grassy with hints of weak tropical fruit and spices before giving way to a hoppy finish. It could have been better!

This is a chunky pour. The colour is medium gold, more murky than hazy, with a huge white head which recedes to a creamy film. The aroma is very peachy with notes of grass, light spices, and tropical fruits. The mouthfeel is full bodied with average carbonation. The first thing I taste is alcohol, followed by bitter citrus ring, grass, and finally the peaches come through in the finish. I want to like it, but the alcohol bitterness is hanging around too long.

The beer pours a translucent reddish gold colour with plenty of effervescence feeding a 1” off-white coloured head. The aroma is grass, musty hops, as well as citrus and tropical fruit notes. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with average carbonation. The dominant flavours are light caramel and tropical fruit with a mildly bitter finish. Nothing flashy.

The beer pours a very cloudy rust colour with a huge rocky off-white head which lasts. The aroma is very hoppy with notes of pine and citrus, followed by honey, yeast, and grains. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is citrusy hops, notes of burnt sugar/caramel, grains, and hints of yeast and honey. An interesting beer. Not very tripel like and not very IIPA like. Yet still enjoyable.
