I love it just for being so different. Nice light malt up front, maybe a hint of caramel (not much). Middle is more like dark fruits (plums, maybe even prunes). Finish is almost minty. Light in the mouth with almost no carbonation. Very interesting beer.

Growler shared by someone.
Appearance : Hazy amber with no head.
Aroma : Spices and fruits with some malt. Nice yeast with nice banana bread notes.
Taste : Spices with light bananas. Finish has nice notes of banana bread. Light bitterness.
Overall : Nothing to write home about but quite good. Nice banana bread notes. I thought this was a weizen.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from LCBO. Pours cloudy and brown. Pretty nice aroma; reminds me of a Belgian ale; full of pepper and other spices. Taste is too sweet, very herbal, and spicy... maybe a general "vegetable" taste in there too. Feels a bit thin, and carbonation a bit too high. Not a fan of this one.
EDIT: getting near the end of my glass, and the beer has warmed up. Now I smell some farmyard animals in there, and taste it too. Adjusting my score to average out my initial impressions with my final impressions.

Ça pétille comme une boisson gazeuse et sitôt versée, sitôt la mousse disparaît. Le liquide est brun acajou et limpide. Un nez d’herbes grasses et de caramel. Les saveurs me semblent plus intéressantes, mais sans flammèches et c’est correct ainsi. Légèrement poivré et/ou épicé, avec un caramel qui s’apparente à du miel ambré.

Growler from the brewery, about a week "old"-It’s nice to have contacts in the Ottawa area.Decants a deep, clouded brown with a thin beige ring of head. The nose is certainly malt forward, and hints at dark rye bread, dark fruit and lots of spice. This is certainly sweet, but I’m not sure if it is from the malts or from the sweet gale. Either way it is pleasant. Fruity, quite spicy, almost savory. The alcohol content is not noticeable, and this beer finishes softly with the low carbonation. Spiced, sweet lingering aftertaste. Quite a treat.

Smells of yeast with moist leaves, caramel, cloves. Marky brown with a white lacy head. Tastes of ripe vegetables with berries, caramel and yeasty finish. Barley. Tastes like a barley wine but with less sweetness. Herbal
