3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Deep blond hazy ale with minimal collar. Subtile candy aroma. Simple but well balanced.

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.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle PELUSO .Nice coppery clear dense look, small white head. Aroma is a bit suspect - fishy overtones? - but has dense acidic fruit. Flavor is definitely a trace fishy, like how my hands smell after a day on the fishing boat - did the chick on the label donate the yeast culture? OK this is a bottle from a reputable shop, it gets the rate. Some nice fruit and acidy tones under the initial putridly pescatorial presence. Medium feel and nicely sweet-dry finish, some good qualities underneath. But its like I’m eating a fish cracker with it. No way are fish scale flavors in beer intentional, even in French-speaking Canada.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2010 Bouteille 341 ml. 6.5%. Couleur ambrée claire. Arôme de levures, un peu d’agrumes et d’épices. En bouche, maltée et légèrement fruitée. Légères notes de caramel et d’alcool. Finale un peu sucrée et une légère amertume.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
341 ml bottle from Premier Wine & Spirits (Halifax). Pours a fairly clear dark orange with small white cap. Strong fruity smell - mostly apples and pears - with lots of yeast and a little spice. Taste is similarly fruity, yeasty, lightly grainy. Maybe a little spice. Medium body. Decent.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light bready malt, light fruit, sweet flavour. Semi dry, bitter finish. Pretty boring Belgian, really nothing going on

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
pours with a slight head and auburn and reddish colour. classic belgium yeast aromas but with a ketchup chip quality that makes me think the alcohol is outta balance with the beer. yeast and leather with a hint of spruce or something vegetal. Taste is kinda quick. the beer is rather thin for the style of beer it is trying to be.Like all this brewery’s beer; which are more generic in taste and has a flavour profile thatwill appeal to a wider audience. however, this is one of the more interesting brews that i’ve had from them.
