cleverlobo (319) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 28, 2011
Bottle; clear golden with medium off-white head; aroma-caramel, orange and something floral; taste-mild sweetness and bitterness, moderate carbonation. Overall a decent lager with more hops than expected but still smooth.

Bouteille 341 ml. 5.2%. Couleur ambrée pâle, mousse blanche-beige pâle. Arôme de malt et un peu de caramel. En bouche, des notes de malt, houblon et en finale une très légère amertume. Une des meilleure Belle-Gueule.

This is probably the better Belle Gueule beer. I prefer Boréale brews over Belle Gueule, but when this one comes out for the winter season, I always like to have a few. Clean light amber-copper colour with a foamy head that dissipates quickly and leaves a little lacing. Nice grainy scent with some mild spices. Reminds me of rye cereal. The taste is pretty similar. What I really enjoy about this beer are the spices. Nothing too crazy like most Christmas beers, but just there to supe-up the taste of their regular brews.

scaredypants (2) - USA - MAR 21, 2010 does not count
Has a nice robust aroma and presents well, but the overall taste is terribly thin.

Draft sample at a Poutine place on Old Montreal. Nice refreshing beer to go with lunch. Nothing special.

bookman10 (716) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - JUL 30, 2009
Had this at a sidewalk cafe in Montreal. My wife liked it better than I did. Not a bad beer by any means, but a bit light on flavor and the aroma wasn’t particularly memorable.

rodenbach99 (3467) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 26, 2007
bouteille brune de 341ml. bière blonde claire avec une petite touche ambrée, mousse épaisse, presque crémeuse, elle est longue. elle possède des odeurs de malt, de houblon frais, d’herbe, très vert comme nez. en bouche elle est piquante, belle longueur, et elle goute le houblon.

Quevillon (2605) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 28, 2007
Bouteille de 341 ml. Jaune dorée, petit collet avec un peu de denteille. Arome typique de son style, malte végétal et des céréals économiques. Goût de légumes amères et coupé d’eau. Pourquoi c’est une lager d’hiver??

HogTownHarry (6199) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 18, 2006
Bottle (341ml). Via trade with my good Montréal friend Viper666. Poured clear pale gold, very small frothy white head. Typical grainy, horse-sweat-y pale lager aroma, a little stale and vegetal with honeyish overtones. Tastes the same - somewhat harsh, papery and stale in the finish, seems stronger than 5.2% somehow. Watery body, harshly fizzy mouthfeel, gritty, bitter/stale aftertaste - ehh, pretty much like all the other B-Gs - maybe a little more assertive, but is that a GOOD thing?
