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?

Plus qu’une simple bière, cette nouvelle Lager d’hiver est singulière et rafraichissante. Elle puise là toute sa quintessence.

rederic (3228) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 21, 2005
Bright yellow gold color, with a nice white head, floral hops, pale malt aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a bready, pale malt, grainy and juicy hops flavors, and a subtle grassy note, leading towards a zesty bittering hops finish.

Lubiere (11586) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 13, 2005
Amber lager with a thin off-white head. Sweet caramel aroma with fruity pear notes. Fairly clean malt taste with nice nuttyness, and nice lingering german hops in finish. Medium bodied. Considering this is 9 month olds, it is quite a resilient beer!

Eructoblaster (3477) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 29, 2004
Nice pale amber body topped with an average off-white frothy head. Malty/hoppy aroma with bready notes (smells like a polish lager). Taste is unexciting without being bad: it is well-balanced but lacks strenght and complexity. Above all, it is characterized with an agressive carbonation. Leaves a short bitter aftertaste. This has nothing to do with winter beer.

Caramel malt balances nicely with lightly spicy hops in the nose. Clear golden-copper with decent and lasting, pillowy, white head. Some lacing. Light sweet caramel malts balance well with spicy hop flavour and decent balancing bitterness. Medium-light body and strong, effervescent carbonation. Sure, it’s pretty conservative for a winter seasonal and doesn’t exactly push the envelope, but really, for a pale lager, it’s fairly good. Bottle.

Amber color, medium white head. Sweet and malty aroma and flavor. Light body. How the hell is this supposed to be a winter lager ? It’s just another ordinary brew from RJ ... now, a doppelbock, that would be a nice winter lager.

Roli (405) - laval, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 7, 2004
Humm, this taste more like a regular macro beer to mee. Got to say the aftertaste is kinda sweet. Not really good for a seasonnal but not disgusting either....

This is another seasonnal beer from Brasserie RJ. This is actually a winter lager. Pourred a light colored brew with a medium head. The taste is quite light with a nice sweet aftertaste. I would have expected a stronger brew since this is a winter seasonal beer but overall it is not too bad.
