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.

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.

Spab (2243) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2010
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.

Light bready malt, light fruit, sweet flavour. Semi dry, bitter finish. Pretty boring Belgian, really nothing going on

Bendrixian (1056) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAY 16, 2010
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.

Gethinbeer (2114) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAY 7, 2010
Strong malt aroma. Rich syrup like feel. Nice amber colour with a thin head. Very strong malt flavour with brown sugar. Nice bitterness. Overall a little dull, hints of spice but does not excite the senses.

SlovakSniper (3013) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - APR 20, 2010
En bouteille. Couleur ambrée. Une fois versée, petite mousse blanche évanescente. Pas beaucoup de bulles. Au nez, la présence du malt s’articule autour de notes plus florales et de légumes cuits (tomate ??). Les saveurs sont plus ou moins définies : maltées, herbacées, caramélisées. Arrière-goût chimique désagréable. Bizarre.

Lubiere (9745) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 23, 2010
A golden ale with a thin white head. In aroma, light malt with boiled vegetables notes, a bit of black pepper. In mouth, a nice clean ale with some belgian overtones, fruity esters, not bad, veering on RJ products. On tap at St-Bock, Dec. 26 2009.

LadySusan (720) - Ste-Therese, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 5, 2009
341ml.bottle. The color is a clear amber hardly any head. The taste of malt and spicies and fruits are noticeable.The aroma is very light.As a Belgium ale this one falls short of its aim.

HogTownHarry (6042) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2009
Draught. Mondiale 2009 - day 2. Clear light amber with a small creamy white head Light grain and mild citrus aroma, detectable alcohol. The taste follows: simple, grain, mild-to middlin’ alcohol and dry citrus zest. Light bodied, but crisply carbonated, a not-inappropriate quick finish to boot - perhaps lacking a Belgian yeastiness, but refreshing and clean.
