À l’abri de la Tempête has drawn on the soil madelinot to concoct a beer with sweet floral accents. Delicately scented with a series of wild herbs gathered on the archipelago, La Belle Saison charm with its warm notes of citrus and flowers accompanied by a refreshing bitterness. A mouthful of sunshine!

Beers from Quebec deserve French deScriptions. Une bière très claire presque translucide. Beaucoup d’effervescence qui nous donne un petit col, mais qui persiste. On dirait du Champagne. Nez de fraîcheur, légère note de houblon. Goût d’épice léger, bien dosé. Que je ne réussis malheureusement pas à identifier. Origan ? Majorlaine ? J’ai l’impression également d’y retrouver un peu de cet air salin du bord de mer… Très bien houblonné. Peu d’arrière goût cependant. Le verre vide, je cherche toujours ou se cache le 5.8% … :-) En résumé : Très bonne bière pour les journées chaudes d’été.

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2012 La couleur frappe par son aspect translucide. Au nez, des notes de fleur et de citron. En bouche, le gingembre et le citron sont en première ligne. Une légère touche de blé apparais pour laisser place à une légère amertume. Désaltérante!

Pleasant and unique saison, new at St. Hubert trip. Very floral, with ginger being the only significant outstanding scent. Pours light yellow with a small lasting white head, and leaving lace dots throughout the glass. . Average mouthfeel, carbonation right there. Decent drinker and refreshing. The taste was mainly ginger, with other herbs including chamomile, and cardamom, pepper.

Bottle that I took to a small tasting with Max, Paul, and Andy. Pours a clear light yellow gold with a thin white head. Herbal and minty, soft musk on the nose. Medium bodied, herbal and slightly lemony. Finishes with a touch of crisp grain and a bit more herbal notes.

Minderbinder (2808) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 1, 2012
Bottle. 341ml. Pours very clear, pale gold. "Almost" water-like. Not much head. Aroma is of flowers. Tastes flowers, hops. Crisp finish. Very drinkable and refreshing. "Clear" lack of complexity. Gives the impression of a cold chamomilla herbal tea. I do lie the flowers, but that’s really all that beer’s got.

Bottle [341ml] shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus -- c/o HogTownHarry. Pours a slightly cloudy very pale gold with an average size lasting frothy white head. Odd aroma of lemon, ginger, sugar, grain and floral notes. Watery flavour of herbs, ginger, honey, floral notes and lemon. Light bodied. Not bad but nothing special.

HogTownHarry (6371) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2012
341ml bottle shared with blankboy and garthicus. Very pale clear gold with a small and diminishing white fizzy/rocky head. Aroma of Chablis, dried flowers, a hint of cinnamon and maybe a bit of bug spray. Taste - floral, grassy light golden ale with a dash of pear - clean but sort of dull. Light body, strong carbonation, quick finish with a decent if slightly gritty fresh grassy finish. Meh.
