Lubiere (9731) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 12, 2013
A blonde pils with a thin white head. In aroma, classic czech pils with mineral character, biscuit malt and saaz hops. In moutb, a smooth biscuit malt with light mineral notes, light boiled veggies OK.

Rastacouere (6119) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2013
Crystal clear pale honey brew wearing a large, rather big-bubbled white head. Grainy and gently sugary, honeyed nose in which flowery/perfumey notions greet the nose as they would a brother. Delicate albeit well positioned hoppy undertones punctuate this sweetish lager whose bready malts feel borderline toasty and frankly honeyed - not unlike those of a heller bock. Its creamy, yet highly effervescent, relatively large-bubbled mouthfeel feels not crisp, but certainly refreshing and fairly acidic, combining with the hops’ zesty citrus notes that bring a welcome acidic touch and dry out effect that greatly accelerate the beer’s sipping rythm. Good stuff, everything ends up coming together even though my initial whiff did not convince me at all. Rather than being cohesive from start to finish, it shows you how wrong you were to begin with and how cohesive it was all along.

TaktikMTL (5628) - Montréal-Nord, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 9, 2013
Bouteille de 341 ml achetée chez Veux-tu une Bière? (Montréal, QC). Arôme: Légère odeur de céréale et de miel. Apparence: La couleur est dorée avec une moyenne densité de bulle. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de céréale avec une pointe d’houblon et d’épices. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement huileuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Arrière goût légèrement fruité. (Rating #4992)

Boutip (4637) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 30, 2013
Bottle: Poured a clear deep golden color lager with a medium size foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light floral malt notes with lightly sweet notes of cereal. Taste is a mostly dominated by floral malt notes with some lightly sweet cereal notes with a final dry hoppy finish. Body is quite full with good carbonation. Enjoyable though maybe a tad too grainy for my own personal taste.

czar (4107) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 26, 2013
pours clear bright yellow with a small but decent white cap, some retention. pils, strange booziness, light citrus, wet grass, unbland herbalness, peppery, doughy malts - almost cloying though. bright carbonation, light body - oily, short but assertive herbal-grassy-citrusy finish. decent drinkability, but some flaws remain, as usual for this brewer.. not quite a DP because of its drinkability and due to this almost hot pre-summer day but.. meh..

rodenbach99 (3063) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - APR 29, 2013
Bouteille de 341ml. bue dans un Bock Laško Pivo. Cette bière est dorée avec une mousse blanche. Au nez le grain est bien présent mais ce n’est pas inintéressant. Le malt est quelque peu sucré, elle est passablement forte en alcool. Le grain est aussi présent en bouche. Facile, agréable, traite, elle se boit en 4 gorgées, mais l’alcool peut rattraper.

SlovakSniper (3013) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 1, 2013
Un liquide qui montre une robe dorée et une mousse presque généreuse. J’aperçois une dentelle sur mon verre. Le nez est rapidement dominé par un alcool floral qui comprime la montée des houblons et des grains roux. Sur la langue, un sucré des malts bien senti et un retour presque désagréable des notes éthyliques qui poivrent les cultivars utilisés. En bouche, un liquide qui présente un corps moyen qui m’apparait bien infiltré par les bulles. La texture m’apparaît presque crémeuse. La finale se fait sur des notes florales plutôt chaudes et habitées par une acidité rampante. Cette bière ressemble étrangement à la Mutineer Imperial Pilsner de Beau’s.

Eructoblaster (2948) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 1, 2013
Bottle - 341ml. Beautiful golden body with an average white foamy head. Decent malty/hoppy aroma with piney hints. Taste is slightly dominated by hoppy flavors. It carries malty, piney, and some grainy notes. Ends with a good bitter/herbal finish. Interesting.

probstblueribbon (2853) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - APR 21, 2013
341 ml bottle from Broue Ha Ha, served cool in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear very deep golden with a fair off-white head. Aroma: Some grassy, peppery hop notes, also oddly leafy, herbal, wet ash, strangely dusty and slightly perfumed, sweet bread crust for malt notes, white wine??, what a mess. Palate: Medium body, slightly relaxed effervescence, fairly smooth. Flav.: Really dusty, boiled grains/cereals, slightly fruity, lightly grassy hops, still has an oddly leafy/herbal kind of character, wet ash, messy; dry yet cloying with a little bitterness and a long, odd, peppery/sweet, messy finish.

FAIL!

tom10101 (2613) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 18, 2013
Bottle (341 ml). Clear light golden with a small quickly dissipating white head and almost no lacing. Aroma of cereals, grass, malt, some sweetness and slight spices. Taste is slightly to moderately sweet with cereals, malt, grass, floral notes and caramel. Medium body. Dry, but could be dryer. Palate is quite clean. Low to average carbonation. This one is not bad per se, but it’s not crisp enough to rank with the best.
