Lubiere (10485) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2009
A hazy golden ale with a super thick off white head. A pleasant aroma of ginger, berries, licorice and cinnamon. In mouth, liquid gingerbread, nice sweet and interesting. Medium bodied. On tap at Mondiale 2009.

Sammy (8947) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 7, 2009
Served to some of the raters by the owner on the first day of Mondiale 2009. roobis and a lot of malt. A little white head. Gingery, not all that drinkable and some sediment made for a slightly negative appearance to the light red colour. First few sips were something else and ineteresting. Unfiltered and understated carbonation

jercraigs (8073) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2009
2009-06-06. Murky pastel orange-amber body with a modest white head. Very intense aroma of spices. Cinnamon, chai? Interesting sweetness, muted pale malts. (7+) Flavour has a similar spice character, like a chair or mulled cider perhaps? Melange of spice, sweet at times but well balanced with the spice and light bitterness. (6+) Average palate suits the beer. I would not want to drink pint after pint of it but I found it pleasant, interesting. On tap at Mondial 2009, Montreal

blankboy (6277) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 22, 2009
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!

HogTownHarry (6131) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2009
Draught. Mondiale 2009 - day 2. Let me be clear - frickin’ LOVED this beer. Murky brick-red pour with a decent and lasting off-white head. Pungent aroma of black tea and floral bitterness, with black pepper spiciness all overlaying a strong underlying "Belgian" yeast and candy character. Lush, sweet malt/yeast taste, with spicy black chai character; chewy, yeasty, grainy and incredibly appealing; okay it was a tad undercarbonated, but that’s being PICKY, this was like a thick chai infusion into a solid Belgian ale - well done indeed.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 26, 2009
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.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 9/20
Boutip (4868) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 11, 2013
Bottle: Poured a deep golden color ale with a medium foamy head with light retention. Aroma of Rooibos tea is quite dominant with light unrefined grainy notes also perceptible. Taste is a weird mix between the some unrefined wheat malt notes and some Rooibos tea with a light astringent finish. Body is light with good carbonation. This mix between tea and beer is not the easiest to put together and I must admit that this si not a case were the experiment was successful.
