Le liquide a une robe cuivrée. Sa tête est petite et fugace. Au nez, les houblons sont présents avec des effluves convaincants de fruits et de fleurs. Quant au malt, il est riche et rappelle le caramel et le sucre d’orge. L’alcool qui monte au nez dégage un parfum floral. À force d’y plonger les narines, la présence fruitée se complexifie davantage : les fruits sont macérés et gorgés de sucre. Au goût, les saveurs des grains maltés sont aussi intenses avec ce même retour de douceur fuitée. À travers l’alcool qui chatouille la langue, les houblons sont goûteux et donnent une amertume qui change selon l’humeur de mes papilles : parfois faible et parfois modérée. En bouche, le liquide possède une rondeur appropriée pour le style avec sa texture veloutée et sa douce agitation. En finale, les saveurs florales de l’alcool et les notes amères des houblons cherchent véritablement à s’accrocher derrière la langue.

341 ml bottle, 4,29$ at Peluso; 5$ for half a bottle at Chambly fest (where I got a little too drunk to remember I hadn’t like it, so I bought it again). Pretty extreme barley wine, thick, almost sirupy. Boozy almost headacheful aroma. A lot of alchool (too much, I think) causing the nevertheless powerful 450 hp citrusy hoppiness to be too shattered. Some fruity and (displeasing) acrid notes. Very american-like BW, which I usually don’t like much... Well done in the style.

JulienHuxley (3344) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - SEP 5, 2010
Bottle, 12% on the label. Crystal clear copper colored pour with lots of frothy white head, good lacing. Aroma of sweet barley candy, toffee and a hint of minty, fruitiness. Taste is sweet, strong alcohol taste, candied fruits and toffee. Palate is a bit slick but has some good carbonation considering the age and ABV. Good stuff.

Boutip (4818) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 22, 2010
Draft through the Randall: Poured a medium amber color ale with a relatively large foamy head with good retention. Aroma is totally dominated by huge floral notes with definitive resin notes. Taste is also a super nice mix between light caramel malt and toffee which are completely overshadowed by loads of floral and resinous notes which are quite exquisite. Body is about average with good carbonation and unsurprisingly totally dominated by hops. Very well done and a very nice discovery overall.

HogTownHarry (6127) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2009
Draught. At Mondial 2009 - day 1. Apparently the Mondial version is "hop infused." Hazy amber pour with an average creamy biege head Ɣ-). Solid, solid aroma of pine resin bitterness near-perfectly balanced against sweet juicy malt and medium-strong alcohol - mmmmmmm. Taste - big, boozy and sweet, a little spice to it, and plenty of grassy/floral/resin hop bitterness - man this is a good American style barleywine!. Sticky, thick, boozy mouthfeel, it finishes just a little quicker than I’d like for a big mutha of a BW, but no real complaint - just makes it more drinkable. Lovely stuff, well done!
