UPDATED: JUN 25, 2014 Je ne m’attendais à rien de cette bière et j’aime beaucoup au bout du compte! Ça goûte légèrement le miel, c’est bien rond et le choix des houblons est parfait. Il manque peut-être légèrement de carbonatation. Excellente!

Rastacouere (6122) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 9, 2013
Healthy white head atop the cloudy dull golden pour. Grainy, slightly husky, gently honeyed malt profile. Gently fruity, grapey flavour profile with a certain dusty, powdery character. Pleasant spicy, flowery hop notes make an effort to bring back some freshness into this staleing ale, but are not prominent enough to gain back the tired cereals and trace paperiness. I bought this last Summer, a bit too long ago, but it’s been kept in the fridge all along and is really not all that old, just a couple of months, yet I find oxidation traces already creeping up.

tom10101 (2644) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 28, 2013
Bottle (500 ml). Clear golden with a medium fully lasting white head and good lacing. Aroma of saaz, floral notes, cereals, yeast and light fruity notes. Taste is slightly sweet, fruitier than the aroma (especially in the finish), yeasty with cereals and floral notes. Light body. Good carbonation. Crisp/clean mouthfeel. Super drinkable and quite tasty. Nice floral/saaz Belgian Ale.

probstblueribbon (2871) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2013
500 ml bottle from Broue Ha Ha, served cool in a tulip glass. 16AU13.

App.: Clear bright golden with a full, bright white meringue. Aroma: Quite fruity, lots of apple juice, spicy, light biscuit, fair. Palate: Medium body, big, rounded effervescence. Flav.: Lightly fruity and spicy, a little resinous hops, a touch floral, a bit of yeast, light biscuit malt, a little weak; dry with decent bitterness and a pleasant finish of light esters, phenols and fresh hops.

There’s some goodness here, just needs to have the volume turned up.

czar (4152) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 2, 2013
pours hazy very pale yellow with a very nice white head, good retention and lacing. soft and crisp pils malts, hit of bread, nice subtle floral bouquet along with underlying citrus, bit of noble hops, quite yeasty - dusty, fruity and a tad spicy, hint of sweetness. lively and soft carbonation, light body - oily without it being sticky, very nice balanced floral-spicy-citrusy finish. a much pleasant surprise!

cfrancis (2259) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 30, 2013
Pours light gold with a big frothy white head. Aroma is faint belgian yeast, grains and light candy. Taste is yeast and wheat with light spice.

Eructoblaster (2956) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 9, 2013
Bottle - 500ml. Good looking, cloudy blond body with an average white frothy/creamy head. Fresh hoppy aroma with coriander, citrusy, and grainy hints. Its hoppy taste carries coriander, citrusy, malty, and yeasty notes. Ends with a sharp bitter/herbal finish. Enjoyable.

VT (1298) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 5, 2013
500 ml bottle. Pours a lightly veiled, but almost clear straw with a very, very thick, resilient white head. Aroma is grains and pils malt. Flavor is vanilla cake, sugar, ripe pear, peppermint, honey. Finish is light citrusy hop, but rather soft. Lingering yeast and vanilla cake. Light to medium body, very soft mouthfeel, weak to average carbonation. Very good, I like its balance, in spite of how sweet it is.

AlainG (1141) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 3, 2013
Blonde presque orangée, d’apparence trouble, coiffée d’une mousse impeccable, qui laisse une dentelle éparse en se résorbant. Des arômes d’agrumes et de malt et d’épices forme un tout olfactif intéressant. Le goût est dans les mêmes cordes. Soyeuse et agréable en bouche. Elle n’est pas à négliger. Elle est bien réussie et plutôt discrète. Dégustée en compagnie d’Alex à Sherbrooke. (708-230613)

pumpkinhead2 (302) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 26, 2013
Bière jaune soleil, couleur or, légèrement voilée, bonne effervescence, surmontée d’un beau col mousseux blanc immaculé. Arômes dominants de levure et de grain, malt pâle, céréale, pomme, léger miel, ça sent la fraîcheur. En bouche, c’est un peu pétillant et mousseux à souhait, corps léger. Saveurs de grain frais, de pomme, un peu de miel, suivi d’une amertume modérée et d’un houblon frais. Cette bière respire et transmet la fraîcheur! Un tout petit peu trop légère en bouche et au goût cependant.
