COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Les Beta ne sont pas destinées à être commercialisées autrement (ce ne sont pas des expériences de pré-marketing). Elles sont de purs produits de R&D(recherche et développement). C’est pour cette raison que le prix de vente avoisine le prix minimum prévu par la loi. (quelques variations possibles selon les détaillants). Pour continuer le plaisir de l’expérience et afin de recentrer l’exercice sur le point de vue scientifique, nous sortirons bientôt la Beta#6 (une bière plus intense avec les mêmes variables à tester) et le formulaire sera plus dirigé afin de focuser sur ce que cette bière “est” plutôt que sur ce qu’elle “n’est pas”. Merci à tous les participants !

Lubiere (9789) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2011
A hazed yellowish blonde with a thick collapsing frothy white head. In aroma, a fruity herbaceous malt with off notes, light spices, troublesome. In mouth, a rather Belgian inspired ale with cloves, fruity esters, bananas, weizen like. Not bad, but I prefer René’s hoppy beers.

Rastacouere (6123) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 24, 2011
Beautiful to look at with its dense, lasting white tower of foam above its hazed very pale golden coat. Mellow lemony citrus accents blend with clovey/phenolic spiciness and wonder bread white doughiness. Very easy to drink, but not particularly engaging .Very timid maltiness, the agressive carbonation not helping, it seems to be almost pure foam we have in mouth, with a fair bit of carbonic acid that dominates the finish with a vague spiciness. Some Hefeweizen characterictics, but without the cereal structure.

Boutip (4656) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 5, 2011
Bottle: Poured a clear yellow color ale with a nice pure white foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of wheat malt with notes of lightly spice yeast is quite interesting. Taste is also a mix between some wheat malt with light banana ester and a good spicy yeast profile with light herb notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. I quite like that one even though I am not sure what I am drinking.

rodenbach99 (3097) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 7, 2011
Bouteille de 341ml. 0,99$ chez...Bière blonde blé claire, la mousse est blanche, les bulles sont fines. Le nez est d’épices, coriandre, blé (?) d’agrumes. La bouche est fraiche, une touche d’acidité, coriandre et agrumes encore une fois. Elle est gouteuse et rafraichissante.

SlovakSniper (3048) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 29, 2011
Le liquide a une robe légèrement dorée et embrouillée. La tête blanche est épaisse et résistante. Une belle dentelle est observée. Au nez, les pommes acidulées rencontrent des parfums timides de bananes et des arômes indéniablement épicés. Quelque chose dans l’air qui me rappelle le bon pain de seigle ukrainien. Les papilles travaillent beaucoup plus que le nez : les épices sont présentes, les fruits moins expressifs, des herbes vertes et fraîches. En bouche, le liquide a un corps faible avec une effervescence prononcée et une texture légère (sans jamais être aqueuse). La finale est courte sur des notes fraîches et épicées. En résumé, cette bière me fait penser à une hefeweizen.

Eructoblaster (2957) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 12, 2011
Bottle - 341ml. Hazy pale blond body with a fair white frothy head. Relatively thin malty /hoppy aroma with spruce hints. Its fresh taste is slightly dominated by hoppy flavors. It also carries spruce/pine notes. Ends with a short bitter/herbal finish. Hope this won’t make it to the market.

mile (2890) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 22, 2011
Bottle. Light yellow, very small and fully diminishing head. Light to moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, light spiciness and herbs. Body is light to medium, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel, light spiciness and herbs. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, some caramel, light spiciness and herbs. Light, sweetish and spicy - not for me.

probstblueribbon (2871) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2011
341 ml bottle from Broue Ha Ha, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. BIG GUSH.

App.: Hazy light golden with a large, frail white head. Aroma: Lots of yeast and wet bread dough, soapy citrus and coriander, some esters, a tangy fruit note and a bit of resinous hops?, more wet dough, meh. Palate: Medium body, moderate effervescence. Flav.: More fruity and estery than the nose, still plenty of bread dough and yeast, lighter lemony coriander, a touch spicy and herbal, not awful; dry with minimal bitterness and a somewhat pleasant bread dough and yeast finish, a bit of lemon too.

I hate gushers. The beer was...fair.
