COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
THIS IS A COLLABORATION OF 13 QUÉBÉCOIS BREWERS. Pour la première fois dans l’histoire du Québec, 13 brasseurs se sont réunis pour élaborer une bière unique, issu de leur savoir-faire commun, dans le cadre de l’émission Ça va brasser! sur les ondes de V. Des céréales crues du Lac-St-Jean, du sarrasin malté en Mauricie, des houblons du Nouveau-Monde et une touche d’herbes des Laurentides, donnent à cette bière fermetnée avec une levure de type Saison un caractère propre à la créativité des brasseurs québécois!

My Bottom Line :
Peppery, lemony and herbal aromatics perform acrobatically within a frothy, airy mouthfeel for a colourful drinking experience.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A substantial head of foam rests atop the misty golden shine, lacing nicely.
-This is not your usual Saison (hello Labrador tea and super citrusy hops!), so it’s going to get ’love or hate’ reviews, I’m sure. It is impeccably rendered though, so bad reviews can only speak about the rater himself, I believe.
-Either Citra was used here, or lemon verbena.
-It’s hard to dissociate the hops from the spices, which is great thing imho.
-The spicy hop bitterness is compelling.
-The mouthfeel is super soft.
-There is a light cereal contribution flavor-wise.
-Yeast is perfectly dispersed throughout the bottle, creating but a fine veil throughout. There is no sludge at all at the bottom of the bottle.
-The yeast adds a few mushroom-y accents here and there.

Bottle.

Minderbinder (1795) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 29, 2012
Bottle 750ml. Pours blond with high white head. Some lacing. Aroma is sweet, citrus, fruits, spices. Taste is acidic, sweet, fruits, weirdness. Overall: Good body. It seems the beer doesnt follow certain rules, wich in that case doesnt help it.

tom10101 (2760) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 29, 2012
Bottle (750 ml). Clear straw color with a small white head. Aroma is fresh with too much sugar... notes fruits, belgian yeast and spices. Taste is fresh and sweet (and too sugary), belgian yeast, malt and spices. Mouthfeel is dry and slightly bitter. This beer smell and taste fresh and is a nice experimentation but is way too sugary and not right on style. Should be more drinkable... it’s a Saison.

Eructoblaster (3014) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 27, 2012
Bottle - 750ml. Superb hazy golden body with a thick, lasting white foamy head. Well balanced, fresh malty/hoppy aroma with citrusy, piney, and subtle yeasty hints. Alcohol is well hidden. Its sharp hoppy taste carries malty, citrusy, and coriander notes. Ends with a long bitter/herbal finish. Very well done!

En fût au BDT à Gatineau. Bouteille 750 ml de 7% achetée à la Micro Charlevoix. Couleur jaune paille, mousse blanche. Arôme de malt, herbes, un peu d’agrume, et du houblon. En bouche, très fraîche, malt, explosion de fruits, poires, bananes mais avec du houblon qui arrose le tout. Finale sèche avec une légère amertume. Très "été" et bonne.
