Draught at ’Mondial de la Biere 2009’, Montréal, QC. Also called ’Biere du Mondial 16ième’. Pours a very cloudy orange-copper with an average size semi-lasting creamy white head. Aroma: Smells great! Ginger, malt, cinnamon, chai tea, herbs and more. Delicious flavour of ginger, fruit, chai tea, herbs and spices -- so refreshing! Medium bodied. Simply fantastic and one of my favourite beers at the festival!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
In short: A strange brew with exaggerated herbal spiciness that ends-up being surprisingly drinkable.
How: Tap at Montreal Mondial de la Bière 2009
The look: Cloudy dirty blonde body topped by long-lasting small off-white head
In long: A little spicy on the nose. Not being familiar with the tea being used in this beer I would not have guessed this was tea I was tasting. To me this was very herbal, all kinds of cooking herbal spices, also some ginger, and more… Just a whole lot of herbal spiciness that takes over everything. Malt character, sweetness and everything else goes unnoticed with all this herbal spiciness so upfront. Astringent finish. Unusual for sure and surprisingly not unpleasant.
I don’t care much for this brewery with their clean well-brewed products for the mass. But I had this one after the Ontario ratebeer table recommended it to me. Yes a beer recommendation from a Ontario table. Then I asked a table a Mexicans where I could find great sushi.
