4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear golden with a thin white head that leaves light lacing only. Nose is of yellow fruits and a little phenolic (just like the belgians do it). Taste is fruity and sweet, pears is what I would say. Finish is spicy/peppery and not too long. Alcohol? Hidden expertly. Body is medium-full. A great beer, a Quebec classic I would say!

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours murky brown with a tan head. Aroma of boozy caramel, that strong Belgian beer with a few years on it effect, also a little herbal taking the edge of the heavy sweetness coming out in the flavour. Full bodied with flat carbonation. No idea what it was like fresh, but very nice with some age.

Couleur doré avec un superbe collet. La levure dégage des notes épicées au nez, poivre et de camomille. Houblonnage parfait : terreux et agrumes. La complexité des saveurs est bien répartie entre le floral, les épices et le sucre. Une grande bière !!!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, with thanks to Sebastien! Pours hazy orange with a large off-white head and nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is orangey, pine, caramel, some leaves, yeast, fruity. Taste is medium sweet, light bitter, quite fruity, kind of reminds me of a cross between a sweet triple and a hoppy barley wine with enough age on it that most of the hop character has faded. Finish is fairly bitter. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Mixed emotions...

Clear golden color, lots and lots of foam. Interesting aroma, it has a little German hefe with banana notes, fruity. Very fruity flavor, totally hefe with lots of alcohol. Too much.
