COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bière ambrée forte, double matière, inspirée de la tradition européenne. 6,5% alc.vol. Bière rebelle, pur malt, au caractère puissant et raffiné. Son attaque est douce et ample, avec un subtil goût de clou de girofle et d’épices.

AlainG (1127) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 4, 2012
Bière blonde/ambrée ayant un léger col mousseux. Nez de malt, fruité et épicé par des pointes de cannelle, de coriandre et de clous de girofle entre autres. Saveurs très semblables aux arômes mais moins prononcées, laissant néanmoins un arrière-gôut épicé. On a l’impression d’une bière bonbon, ce qui n’est cependant pas désagréable, mais, rien pour écrire à sa mère. (220112)

glennmastrange (2205) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JAN 19, 2012
Bottle. Moderate malt aroma of cereal, light to moderate cooked orange for the hops and barnyard for the yeast, with a hint of honey and faint spice in the background. Head is small, fizzy, slightly off-white with some spotty lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is sparkling clear medium amber. Flavor starts slightly sweet, heavily acidic and sour, then the short finish is just acidic. Palate is light to medium, watery with a fizzy carbonation. It has nice balanced aromas, and somewhat harsh and out of balance flavors, but it’s still a good drinking Belgian Ale.

Johnsense (750) - - DEC 2, 2011
BDM’s best beer. Don’t approach it as a pure belgian - rather an American Amber/Belgian hybrid. Orange/Red pour with 2 fingers of frothy white head. big gobs of lacing. Spice in the aroma, earth, yeast, caramel, mixed nuts. Taste is a combination of spice, yeast, a bit of vanilla, dark fruits, a bit of nuttiness, earth and wood - very complex. Medium bodied and creamy. To this day I’m not sure what BDM was going for but this beer is delicious, especially on tap.

yespr (30684) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - OCT 21, 2011
From tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is toasted caramelish and light fruity. Phenolic, caramelish and light toasted malty. Subdued fruity and bitter to herbal. Bitter and herbal dry finish.

Atheist_Peace (927) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUL 9, 2011
341ml bottle. Clear amber pour with a finger of head that vacates quickly and leaves almost no lace. Bread and fruit on the nose with a hint of caramel on the nose. A little booze on the palate with a lot of caramel and some bread and fruit. Finishes bittersweet. Not bad, but fairly uninteresting.

DuffMan (6462) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 8, 2011
Bottle. Medium tea-amber, brief white head that recedes to a ring. Aroma is nicely malty, light toast and porty fruits. Flavours are more fruit-forward, golden raisins cooked apples, with light toasty caramel. Quite tasty, I’d be happy to have a few of these in a Montreal pub.

BLAP (73) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 17, 2011
Deep blond hazy ale with minimal collar. Subtile candy aroma. Simple but well balanced.

UM02 (302) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 7, 2011
Similar to the other beer I have tried from this brewery, Montréalaise. Nothing exceptional but still a decent drinkable beer of some quality. Not sure if I would buy it again given that there are some better alternatives but nevertheless still enjoying it.

czar (4110) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 6, 2011
on tap at brewpub. clear dark golden, almost copper, with a disappearing white head. grainy, wheat, toasted malts, faint malts though. some citrus, vanilla and orange, bananas, cloves. floral-citrus hops (nice) with an herbal medium long finish. harsh carbonation, light body. ok.

DeanF (1662) - Nunavut, CANADA - DEC 12, 2010
Aroma of malt with just a hint of hops. Clear amber body, decent head. Taste is a malty fruitiness with some saison-like elements creating a slightly vegetable finish. Mouthfeel is a little watery. Slightly intriguing, but flawed.
