3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bouteille. Couleur jaune-légèrement orangée voilée. Mousse mince qui reste bien. Arôme très épicé, très coriandre, levure, blé. Goût aussi très coriandre, poivré, agrumes, levures, le blé est faible. Corps moyen, effervescence moyenne. Bonne, mais trop épicée pour moi.

Je m’excuse, mais je n’aime pas cette bière. Je trouve qu’elle goûte le savon. Un beau col, une belle dentelle, mais acre et ce goût prononcé que je décrivais. Désolé.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle courtesy of Hogtown Harry, who doubled up on his mission to trade for and purchase every Quebec beer ever made. Nice medium yellow, a few streaming bubbles, nice compact tight white head, long lasting. Aroma - ohhh, very strong! Tons of spice (coriander), pepper, and wheat - wonderful stuff! Taste - wow, once again, coriander and pepper dominate at first, and then there is appreciable hop bitterness and a lovely citrus character to the wheat malt body. Very active and tingly in the mouth. Roof of your mouth lemon. Finishes way too quickly though, only complaint. Serve this in a proper glass on tap on a patio on a warm day and I’m driving there now, what a great surprise, thanks again Harry.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2010 500ml bottle. Cloudy yellow-golden body with a medium white head. Coriander nose. Taste is dominated by an excessive amount of coriander under which exists some fruity yeast, citrus & lemon. Far from a watery witbier this one has a rich body. Short and dry finish with a pleasant astringency. Not up to par with the other Dominus Vobiscum but I’m pretty sure I’ve had better bottles in the (I’ll have to try the next batch). That’s the problem with Microbrasserie Charlevoix, it’s one of my favourite micro but from batch to batch their beers are as unpredictable as my cousin Louis on acid.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Huge head impressive carbonation, good retension and laces. Golden/yellow hazy color. Nose is probably its best attribute: lemon, esters (banana), yeast and coriander and finally some herbal notes. I can’t keep myself from thinking of a lemon pie. Although I do get pretty much the same flavors, my main complaint is the lemon quickly fades out and is replaced by a huge amount of coriander and cloves. Good balance of tartness provided by the wheat which balances the sweetness. Body is a bit thin. Quite refreshing, drinks easily although the spices are overwhelming to my tastes and the flavors weren’t as interesting as the nose was promising.
