3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Orangée, légèrement voilée avec un mince col de mousse. Nez fruité, épicé et houblonné. En bouche, l’amertume frappe rapidement mais avec douceur... comme un coup retenu. Une touche de gomme baloune vient agrémenter la finale. Meilleure que dans mes souvenirs.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, at home, drinking it as I’m writing. Golden-red color, small head. Aroma, light citrus, very herbal/floral. Taste is a mix pine spices, very smooth. Finish is a bit abrupt. What is this, an IPA, can’t be, an APA? In a way it is one of a kind PA. With Corne de Brume from À l’abri de la Tempête, another very good beer.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Gouteuse bière épicée, similaire à la corne de brume de la même micro-brasserie.
Ça goute rouge, je ne sais pas trop comment décrire.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours sligthly hazy golden with medium white head. Lots of lacing. Aroma is of pine, citrus, malt, fruits, flowers. Taste is of spices, flowers, bitterness, malt, sweetness. Palate: light-medium body. Overall: Bitter finish. Very good. For me, it’s an IPA. I don’t get the low ratings on that one. Bottle inconsistency? I won’t mind making sure of that...

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A very complex beer that unfortunately, wasn’t at all to my liking. Pours an opaque amber with thin head and noticeable unfiltered solids. Notes of yeast, berries, wheat, hardwood and wild flowers. Very bitter (in a bad way) and overly sweet at the same time; just over the line in my opinion on all fronts. Might be for some, but not for me. I wouldn’t buy it again.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly hazy copper coloured body with a bright orange glow and a very thick and luscious spotty lace off-white head. Aroma of nice sour grapes, oak, hay, grass, yeast, wheat, flowers, lavender, chervil and a bit of sage. Medium-bodied; Assertive effervescence with a lot of hay, grass and floral flavours with a hint of sweetness on the backend. Aftertaste is relatively light with only a bit of malt noticeable, but still a lot of saisony notes with hints of white peppercorn and a little earth and remnants of oak. Overall, an interesting and rather complex beer that shows fairly well. I sampled this 341mL bottle purchased from Best Cellars in Arlington (Clarendon), Virginia [since closed] on 04-July-2011 for US$6.99 (A LOT) sampled at home in Washington on 10-May-2012.

I have to admit, I don’t like a beer that have a soapish - lavenderlike aroma and taste. And that one nailed it perfectly... To it’s credit, the lavender taste as a pine resin undertone to it that worths the try. Beside, I would have liked a little more carbonation and a sharper malt to match the floral aroma. But that’s just me...

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
341 ml bottle. Pours slightly orange in colour, nice frothy white head. Leaves tonnes of lacing. Kind of a weird one. Very unusual herbal aroma, taste of hops and odd earthy, cooked vegetable like taste. One is enough.
