A hazy orange beer with a small orange head. The aroma contains notes of mint and flowers. The flavor is very flowery and again with notes of mint, but also sweet caramel, and a touch of lemon together with the hops in the end.

Like mint and juniper...I think it would make a great sauce for venison. As for beer, let’s take a look. Golden-amber colour. Strong peppermint aroma (not mint, that’s a different plant). Very herbal character. Quite sweet, minty, punctuated with juniper. The elements are there, and are reasonably well-integrated aside from perhaps needing more hop. I just wasn’t compelled. They should add some venison to the keg.

(RBSG05) Clear amber body with an off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, orange, light caramel. Taste is moderately sweet, orange, some caramel, light earthy. Smooth, light-medium body, light stickiness.

Lubiere (10654) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2005
Slightly hazed amber ale with a thin lacing white head. Definite green mint in aroma, with gin and caramel notes. In mouth, sweet spiced ale with coriander and juniper berries. Lightly hopped. Nice and classy.

On tap at the brewery, unusual stuff. Conifeurs and mint. Strange vaporub aroma. Bitter with some sweetness to get it down.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2007 (Initial rating from a couple batches when the brewer used to work at Le Bilboquet in Ste-Hyacinthe):

After having stepped in rich caramel, a caterpillar, still digesting a celeri stick, retreats into its mint leaf and green salad cocoon...It later flies away, graceful, to a fruity, peachy and creamy afterlife...An original, smooth evangel of passion very much in the Fantôme lineage...4/5

(New rating, from the first batch brewed at Bedondaine):

Pillowy soft mouthfeel and flavor equilibrium engage the tongue and mind...Mint leaves float gently on the suave malt and yeasty ground...Alcohol is so well-hidden, this one feels like its half its size; a feeling helped by the 10% rye malt used, which encourages the next gulp...Overall, maybe better balanced than the one’s I had had at the Bilboquet, but less perfumy, less sweet, and sooo easy to drink...Another unique creation from Nicolas "Bedondaine" Bourgault, without any gambrinal lineage other than his imaginative self...3.7/5

Pours a clear bronze with a nicely-lacing white head. Lightly malty, unique minty aroma has some faintly floral hops and juniper. Body is full and malty with an enjoyable, subtle minty flavor and a sticky, semi-bitter finish. A well-brewed beer, but I’m not quite sure I like the mint character. I think the mint would work better with a chocolatey, sweet or imperial stout.

Verre de dégustation à la brasserie. Arôme: Odeur de menthe et d’épices. Apparence: Couleur blonde dorée. Mince col mousseux. Aucune bulle. Fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de menthe poivrée. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen et la texture huileuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Arrière goût astringent. (Rating #208)

Rastacouere (6145) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 28, 2005
Beautiful cloudy cookie amber. Generous off-white head leaves superb lacing traces with every sip. Diplomatic if light biscuity maltiness coats the nostrils with a blast of peppery, herbal mint leaves. Leaves a long minty and bready aftertaste with a touch of orangey hops. Well developped balance, totally masked alcohol. Dangerously drinkable. Firm, almost crisp belgian carbonation, medium bodied, smooth palate. Excellent.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 21, 2007
Clear golden-copper body with a medium beige head. Smooth and full body. Rye is apparent and its accompanied light spiciness and astringency makes this one highly drinkable. Sweet breakfast jam type of fruitiness. Mint is also very apparent but not disturbing. Hint of lavender. Kind of hard to describe actually how all these flavours come together and it always amazes me how the whole thing actually works. Unusual. A mint beer, fresh breath for your alcotest.
