La palabre raconte...Que les microbrasseries du Québec se sont concertées afin de créer un nouveau style de bière: Annedd’ale de l’Intendant. Fermentée avec de la levure récoltée à même les voûtes de l’ancienne brasserie de l’Intendant Jean Talon à Québec, elle a pour ingrédient clef des pousses de sapin beaumier. Elle est le reflet du terroir et du savoir-faire des brasseurs québécois!

Eructoblaster (3024) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 9, 2013
Bottle - 341ml. Pours a very dark brown body with a lasting beige foamy head. Nice malty/hoppy aroma with grainy and piney hints. Its well balanced taste carries grainy, piney, and oaky notes. Ends with a decent, dry Bitter/woody finish. Interesting.

probstblueribbon (2919) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 2, 2012
341 ml bottle from Broue Ha Ha, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Deep brown-mahogany with a decent light mocha head. Aroma: Strong pine/evergreen, sort of eucalyptus-medicinal, the richer molasses and brown sugar malts are obscured, dang, that’s green and sharp. Palate: Medium body, rounded effervescence. Flav.: Again, strong pine/evergreen, tons of it, there are obvious molasses notes behind this, little else; wow, dry with some bitterness, strong astringency and a LOT of pine/evergreen.

Fail. Drainpour.

Bottle (341 ml). Brassin Octobre 2011. Dark reddish brown with a small fully lasting beige head and good lacing. Aroma is mostly of balsam fir along light caramel, light roasted malt and fruity notes. Taste is also of balsam fir, roasted/toasted malt, caramel, light fruits and light bitterness. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. This is without a doubt the best Annedd’ale I have tasted so far. Impressive balance. Drinkable. Very good!

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 29, 2012
Bouteille 341ml. De couleur brune foncé et voilée. Nez de conifère, de malt foncés sucrés et aux notes rôties, légèrement épicé (muscade, traces de gingembre) et avec des notes herbeuses (herbes mouillées, traces de menthe). Moyenne-mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture légèrement huileuse. Léger goût épicé (poivre doux, traces de muscade, de gingembre et de clou de girofle) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un moyen goût de malt foncé légèrement sucré (traces de caramel), aux notes terreuses et avec quelques traces rôties ainsi qu’avec des traces de pain. Parallèlement, un goût de conifère frais vient se rajouter progressivement jusqu’en finale, où l’on y retrouve également des notes herbeuses de houblon et de menthe. Post-goût moyen-long et un peu sec, composé d’un goût de conifère avec des traces de malt rôti.

Fred82 (2115) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 12, 2012
341ml bottle from Peluso.
Appearance : Deep amber with small brown creamy head.
Aroma : Explosive aroma with load of spruce needles. Very perfumy. Light sweet malty notes with very light chocolate.
Taste : Pine needles with light roasted notes. Light coffee with light resinous hops. Finish very piny with light roasted notes. Light coffee. Finish fairly dry and sharp.
Palate : Carbonation is fizzy but not too strong. Medium body which is nice for such a low abv beer. Finish is a bit sticky like one could expect with that much spruce flavor.
Overall : Wow very nice one. Awesome aroma, very expressive and quite complex. sure the pine takes over most of the profile but you can still detect some nuances in the hops and malts. Nicely drinkable and refreshing with a great dry finish. Very good. The best Annedd’Ale I’ve had so far...and by far. I wasn’t a big fan of this idea but these guy managed to pull this one off in a very elegant fashion.

Marheb (2059) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 21, 2011
Beau projet que cette Annedd’ale. Est-ce que ma première expérience saura m’intriguer davantage sur les prochains prototypes mis sur le marché dans les prochaines semaines? Dès l’ouverture de la bouteille, c’est oui. Le nez est très houblons frais et résine de conifère, très frais et invitant. Au goût, même chose avec le support chocolaté et caramel du corps. Étonnement beaucoup de saveurs et de corpulence pour une si petite bière. Totale réussite, me fait un peu penser à la wet-hopped de Founders.

Minderbinder (1822) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 18, 2012
Bottle 341ml. Pours dark brown/red with very high creamy beige head. Good lacing. Aroma is of fir, malt. Taste is of fir, malt (roasted), bitterness. Palate: Ligth-medium body. Overall: Unusual stuff, but very good. Reminds of root beer (not the pop). Good Anned’ale (Quebec Style) (( Represent)).
