I have purchased a bottle a week since discovering this wonderful beer about six weeks back. Perhaps it’s only my opinion, but this beer tastes a little different with each new experience. At least half of the bottles I have sampled tend to be gushers upon opening, but knowing this I am now prepared with a glass in hand. This is pure luxury as our options for this type of beer in quebec are hard to come by without doing special importation or dropping in the ball park of $30 a bottle in a bar. In the summertime I really enjoy sour ales and this one does the trick as well if not better than recent offerings I have sampled from De Ranke, Jolly Pumpkin and some of the less impressive offerings from Cantillon. Mind you I may be favourable towards this local beauty because I can find it easily at most of Montreal’s better beer outlets. This is my currently my favourite specialty beer brewed in Quebec! Try one soon as I believe stock is starting to dwindle.

Brun-cuivré... j’avais étrangement fantasmé sur un rouge rubis. La mousse est mince mais satisfaisante. Le nez s’éparpille définitivement entre le vin boisé, le caramel et les petits fruits rouges. En bouche, on retrouve un côté surette qui rappelle un bon lambic (l’effet des levures sauvages?) et une rondeur soutenue par le sucre et l’alcool. Un goût de vin, un goût divin! En arrière-goût, l’acidité s’éteint pour laisser place à une sécheresse boisée. Assez cher, mais il n’y a rien d’équivalent (en terme de registre de saveurs) à meilleur prix sur le marché québécois pour l’instant.

Se déploie sur plusieurs niveaux, l’acidité attaque dès le début mais est rattrapé par la vigueur des malt rougis. Les tannins enrobent superbement le l’oeuvre, belle bouteille.

Rougeâtre et trouble, cette interprétation libre d’une Rouge des Flandres surprend par sa complexité. Un nez de fruits rouges, notamment des fraises, avec des notes boisées titille nos sens. Le caractère vineux se révèle en bouche plus la bière tempère et laisse transparaître un aspect acétique fort agréable et soutenu par une présence sucrée toute douce. Fruitée, sauvage et délicieuse, ça nous prend définitivement plus de bières dans le même genre au Québec.

Boquébiere had one of our favorites -- out of roughly 50 beers we tried in Montreal over the 4 days -- their HILDEGARD ROUGE DES CANTONS, a 7% Flanders Red. I’d say that it ranked in the top 5. Aged in oak red wine barrels, this Quebec malt beer fermented with wild yeast had a deep mahogany color, an effervescence, a Rodenbach-like nose, strong initial tartness/sourness, some Brett and yeastiness, but finished out gently, with a slight grainy aftertaste. The wine barrel aging definitely imparted some tannic wine qualities. Well worth a try!
