UPDATED: APR 20, 2011 My Bottom Line:
A graceful perfume of yellow grapefruit, lemongrass, and pine needles teems with hoppy life, as flickering bubblegum phenols impregnate the doughy maltiness and takes it to comforting levels. This New World Belgian-style Strong Ale is as brimming with life as can be.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A stickly sheet of foam garnishes the misty golden.
-Alcohol is present in the flavor profile, but the spicy fluttering of hoppiness tends to cover it.
-Carbonation is expansive, but soon enough the mouthfeel becomes very classy; it sure is authentic, no doubt there.
-The pine character of the Simcoe hoppiness works wonders throughout, but especially in the finish.
-A floral/perfumy character rises from the yeast and hop alliance, recalling some champagne yeast experimentation.
-Like the Hibernus, this Charlevoix is extremely expensive, but they are both rare examples for which a high price can be justified; beer this classy and flavorful is priceless in the eyes of beerophiles.
-This is not Houblon Chouffe at all (even though 2 of the 3 hops used are the same, and the same fusion of hop varieties is called upon), but it is a nearby world. Malheur Brut Reserve isn’t too far away either.

Many bottles, thankfully.
