Bouteille 750 mL. Brune-orangee avec tres peu de mousse. Nez vineux et legerement acetique. En bouche: un peu de malt en attaque, rapidement enterre par les saveurs de fraises surettes et vinaigrees. Un style dont je n’ai pas l’habitude, mais tres interessant!

Quevillon (2577) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 1, 2012
750 ml bottle purchased at Peluso (Montreal), on June 21, 2011 (first beer of 2012). Honey orange misty, small head. Aroma of red wine vinegar, spicy notes of malt. Light taste of vinegar to fruit, notes of pepper and menthol, sour fruity aftertaste. This brewery is usually a hit or miss, but this is a real hit!

Pours a dirty brown with a big frothy beige head with sediment. Aroma is intense cheeries, mild sourness. Taste is a nice cherry sourness with a slight oak. I’m just starting with sours, this one is easy and quite enjoyable.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 2, 2011
In short: A fruity vinous and moderately sour farmhouse beer. Very good
How: From bottles at Soirée Des Brasseurs 2011, Shawinigan QC
The look: Cloudy dark amber topped by a long-lasting small beige head
In long: Nose is horse blanket, complex fruitiness (berries, grapes, more…) and some leather. Taste is a bit vinous, nice caramel, tart red fruits (including grapes and even strawberries), medium sourness, farmhouse character reminiscent of a leather horse saddle. I really enjoyed that beer. A nice surprise. I didn’t think Boquébière was capable of such a beer. I didn’t care much for this brewery until now, I guess the brewer gave me the wrong impression, he gave me a convincing Arnold Schwarzenegger impression but I clearly asked for a George Bush impression.

AlainG (1364) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 1, 2011
Bière de couleur brune aux reflets rougeâtres assez opaque qui a sorti sa mousse dès l’ouverture, pour laisser un léger col dans le verre. Au nez, c’est les cerises mûres que je sens, qui me rappelle le jus de cerises polonais, assez prononcé. En bouche, c’est très acide, surette, âcre er amer, suivi d’une pointe d’herbes. Lot 1104-0025 (94-031011/191111)

Eructoblaster (3196) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 13, 2011
Bottle - 750ml. Cloudy brown body with an average off-white foamy/creamy head. Strong malty/hoppy aroma with fruity (mainly cherries) and flowery hints. Alcohol is noticeable without being agressive. Well balanced hoppy taste with malty, fruity and some subtle woody notes. Ends with a sharp, long bitter/sour finish. Well done.

Lubiere (10636) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 18, 2011
A murky reddish brown ale with a thin moka head. In aroma, a superb balanced ground cherry with light epsom salts, horseblanket, classic, à la Rodenbach. In mouth, lighter than expected with sour cherries acidity, a bit dry and light, but overall, a nice Quebec sour. Bottle at Bieres et Saveurs, Sept. 2 2011.
