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.

Atheist_Peace (981) - 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 (9505) - 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 (354) - 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 (7525) - 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 (2342) - Alberta, 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.

DerWeg (1590) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 5, 2010
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.

sseb69 (1777) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 8, 2010
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 (3336) - 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.

robinvboyer (4118) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 27, 2010
Light bready malt, light fruit, sweet flavour. Semi dry, bitter finish. Pretty boring Belgian, really nothing going on
