EnSiFeRuM (501) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 24, 2008
Bouteille de 750 ml vieillie 1 an. Nos yeux observent ce divin nectar d un œil mielleux légèrement trouble ainsi qu un col de mousse imposant qui colle à la parois du verre. Au nez on découvre une multitude d arômes bien balancées : pamplemousse, fleurs, miel, trèfle ainsi qu un parfum de levure qui suggèrent les épices. En bouche le corps est rond avec une effervescence moyenne. On goûte d abord des saveurs de grain mielleux, vient ensuite le côté épicée de la levure ( pamplemousse, poivre) et le tout se termine avec une amertume tranchante de houblon pamplemousse. Le 10% est très bien camouflé. Excellent

Bottle from glouglouburp shared at Yeha 2008, thanks Dany. Clear orange gold body with small clinging carbonation and a large frothy white head. Aroma is very spicey and peppery with notes of yeast and flowers. Medium bodied with average carbonation a slightly dry finsih and a long lingering finish. Flavor has notes of licorice, earth, yeast, flower petals and even a touch of mint. Very complex and if you prefer saisons or a beer along those lines you will love this one.

eaglefan538 (2914) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - DEC 20, 2008
Bottle shared by sloth. Poured with a big huge head, lots of carbonation, huge rocky and pilloy nature to the head, continuous rings of lacing all the way down. One of those trendy 3ipa bsa deals, been liking my last several. Floral, minty, some lighter candi sugar flavors, faint yeast, good stuff, but man I had no idea it was above 4.0 on RB - and still cannot really believe it. Thanks, Bert!

Bottle shared by bert at stateline. Light golden color, big fosty white head. Aroma of hops. Taste was a light hop flavor but I am not a fan of the saaz hops. Grassy and dry. Minty? Texture was a little thin. Not bad or good, making it an average beer. Thanks for sharing bert!

Cloudy golden color with a sopay white head. Aroma of grapefruit, yeast, pepper. On the palate a mix of sweet sour-fruit and yeast. nice carbonation. Very nice beer.

radiomgb (2451) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 25, 2008
Golden-orange in colour with a large very long lasting creamy white coloured head, excellent lacing. The aroma is yeasty, lots of citrus - oranges and grapefruits, pine and grass, floral and lots of hops. The flavour is of citrus hops, yeast, very smooth and creamy, pepper and other spices. Citrusy mouthfeel, medium body, high carbonation. Finishes long with some light alcohol, very filling.

Wow, this one sort of came out of nowhere. Along with thier Hibernus, these are some of the best beers coming out of Quebec. This makes drinking beer fun again. I can’t wait to stock up on this when it comes out again.

750ml bottle from the Marché Jovi in Gatineau, Quebec.
Opened on May 11, 2008.
Vintage 2007.

hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - OCT 12, 2008
Thanks to Dickinsonbeer for sharing this one. Lightly hazy orange in color with a big, fluffy off white head. Aroma is a alot of amarillo and simcoe hops, with some yeasty phenolics and esters. Some slight malt perceivable. Taste is nice and dry, with amarillo and simcoe, alot of citrus, mango, and somewhat catty. Dry malt profile with just some honey like sweetness. A good deal of yeasty phenolics and esters. A really good hopped up, comparable to Houblon Chouffe or CL Xtra Gold. Thanks Paul!

750ml from Glouglouburp - thanks, Dany! As a big fan of Houbolon Chouffe and Urthel Hop-It, let’s just say I was well prepared to love this beer. And it didn’t disappoint in the slightest. An absolutely massive pour, a rush of golden brew and carbonation with an abundant, sticky head that settles into a pleasant series of rocky formations. Nose is very dry, obviously well hopped but with some powerful yeast and pepper notes, which complements the dryness of the beer. The flavor is multi-dimensional, though, with some very mild citric flavors emerging as the beer warms a bit. Malts in there for balance and a touch of sweetness, but nothing too leaden or overpowering. Basically a superlative rendition of the IIPA/Belgian hybrid.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 2, 2008
Bottle- Deep golden pour unleashes a beautiful frothy white cap, leaving plenty of lace. Spicy, fruity nose hints at rose petal and fresh hops, with lots of citrus and a blast of cotton candy. Smells good. I don’t really like the sweetness here, but the flavour profile is still pretty good. Sweet mango and apple with yeasty flavours lead to spices and candied malts. The hops don’t come through in the flavour the way they were calling at me in the aroma. Pretty good beer to be sure. A bit over-hyped though.
