3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
341 ml bottle in a 12-pack from Trappe a Fromage, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. JN25/09.
App.: Clear golden with a decent white foam.
Aroma: Some light cereal/grain, kinda fruity (apples), just slightly vegetal.
Palate: Medium body, very soft carbonation, smooth.
Flav.: Similar to the nose with some grain/cereal, more fruity than the nose – apples and oranges, citrus, a bit Belgian; dry with basically no bitterness.
Pretty nice for a light beer.

Tap at the brewpub. Pale blonde colour. Thick white head. Aroma is very light. Fresh and lightly bready. A bit of light herbal hoppiness. A little bit of floral zestiness, but this is quite light. A bit biscuity. Pretty simple.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2009-06-05. Crisp yellow body with a small white head. Mild aroma, muted light yeast and a touch of not quite fruity notes. Flavour is light, sweet malt base, light yeast and esters, glimpses of light florals, like orange blossom, in the finish. Average plus palate is smooth and more full bodied than expected, pleasantly so. Decent but just okay. On tap at the brewpub, Montreal

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle: Poured a clear light golden color ale with a small bubbly head with minimal retention and some small traces of lacing. Aroma of lightly sweet malt with no much else in terms of noticeable characteristics. Taste is also dominated by some sweet malt with no discernable adjunct and a thin watery finish with some light unrefined grain ester. Definitely not the best from this new brewery.
