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.

341ml Bottle, thanks dad. Aroma: loads of flowers and herbs, spices and honey. App: clear pale, minimal white head. Taste and palate: thin body, light texture, spices in mouth, light astringent finish. Overall: meh. This is not for me. Body too thin, too much floral and herbal. Feels like drinking water in a flower and herb rendall.

Light floral aromas, spices, ginger and allspice. Nice appearance, large, long lasting, white head with good lacing. Sparkling, light yellow body. Light bitter sweet flavours that leave you wanting more. Easy to drink. Putting this one on my summer list.

Gluepot (239) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 8, 2015
A massive taste accomplishment at 5.5% abv. The nose pops with coriander, cloves, and sweet malt. The colour is lager-like with a fluffy white head. The taste profile delivers on the spices in the nose in a big way. Coriander, cloves, peppermint and hint of pepper are prominent over sweet bready malt and some juicy citrus and floral hops. A whole whack of taste on a solid body with appropriate carbonation.

Pour is pale gold with a clean white cap that’s gone in a flash. Notes is lots of steeped flowers/tea, lemon, hay, faint bread dough. Taste is light and crisp and refreshing. The flowers/herbs are dominant, but in no way overpowering. and there’s a nice bitter, peppery kick on the finish. It’s February, but this is a great summer beer.

erickok (4464) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAR 31, 2014
Golden body and small stable head. Pepper, aniseed, medicinal, crisp pilsner malt body. Light body, without much interest, quite clean for a Belgian ale, bit too sweet. Not great, but drinks okay. Expensive here, but that?s just the grey import. (341ml bottle from Paris St Bière)

simardsam (245) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 12, 2014
Jaune/dorée pâle avec une mousse faible. Nez parfumé, floral, d’épices et d’agrumes. Goût sucré, mielleux et épicé. Douce, agréable et qui se boit bien.

Honey and floral scent with a light yellow color. Its refreshing taste explodes in the mouth with honey and a descrete taste of spices. Really nice in a hot day. Cheers!

Plain and boring. A slight hint of hay here and some citrus but that’s about all the saison around in this one. Pours golden, lager-like with decent head and lacing. Finish has light sourness. Bottle from Brou haha.
