Blonde houblonnée

Du houblon. Du houblon. Encore plus de houblon. C’est beau... nous vous avons entendu... et nous répondons à vos attentes! Voici La Houblonnière. C’est essentiellement une intense tisane de houblon... déguisé en bière blonde. Nous avons gardé les saveurs maltées et le taux d’alcool sous contrôle pour que vous puissiez expérimenter une explosion de houblon dans votre bouche. Boum!

Hops. Hops. Even more hops. Alright... we got it... and we deliver. Here is La Houblonière. It is essentially an intense hop infusion... disguised as a blond ale. We kept the malt flavors as well as the alcohol content under control so you could experience an explosion of hops in your mouth. Boom!

HippyHop (605) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 15, 2015
Pour is murky orange with a massive cap that lasts forever and leaves a bit of lace. Nose is pine/floral hops, light citrus, and a surprising amount of yeast as it warms. For a beer that’s all about the hops, it’s a little lacking in terms of distinction, though not in bitterness. Nice diversion from my usual citrus/tropical fruit hop bombs, though.

Stoned99 (1321) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 3, 2014
Bottle from IGA. Aroma: pine, grapefruit. App: gold, nice big long lasting carbonation, clear with white-tanned head. Taste: medium to heavy bitterness with some sweetness. pines, a little bit of grapefruit, expect more because of the smell. Palate: light body, thin and oily texture, nice carbonation and bitter finish. Overall: Not really a complex IPA, a little bit too much straight to the point. I prefer my IPAs with more complexity and more fruits than this one. Though, another not bad IPA from Quebec.

Spab (3438) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2014
500 ml bottle from St. Nicholas Metro. Pours a murky golden orange with big, creamy cream-coloured head and lots of pretty large floaties. Aroma is resinous, grassy and a little citrusy with a bit of malty sweetness. Flavour is dominated by punchy resiny/grassy/citrusy hops; a little sweet, fruit malt is in there too. Reasonably bitter finish. Solid.

On tap at the brewery. Houblonniere is A nice slightly cloudy copper gold with a thick beige head. It had hoppy green c-hops, hop pellet and pine aroma. Very bitter but clean, some dankness lots of pine and a bit of caramel malts. A solid hop forward APA that is almost an IPA.

Randy4Beer (513) - - MAY 11, 2014
Pours very dark gold. Steady carbonation. Frothy white head that leaves behind considerable lacing. Aromas of citrus, pine, and a smidgen of marmalade. Tastes more bitter than the aromas. Grapefruit, malts and grains. Dry finish. Overall, a bit different than the standard hoppy beers out there right now, and while not my favourite of beers brewed in this fashion, it is a solid, enjoyable pour.
