daniel0017 (380) - Yukon, - DEC 21, 2012
semi cloudy orange amber body with thick, frothy beige-white head of 3 fingers. aromas are very complex: musk, apricot, pear, apple and autumn fruit and notes of nutmeg and cedar??? Too complex for my novice beer somelier lore / vocab. flavor is sweet with some lingering tartness in the finish. Delightfully smooth throughout the sampling. Dangerously drinkable.

swiseman (424) - Fredericton, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUN 2, 2014
pours an amber-brown with thin head. hop aroma. highly hopped, but bitterness is balanced. Some Belgian yeast on the tongue. However, alcohol finish is overly pronounced significantly diminishing the flavour profile.

UXO (111) - CANADA - MAY 23, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy gold with a massive three fingers of fizzy white head, gradually settling down and leaving behind heavy lacing. Nose is Belgian yeast, banana, caramel, slight piney and citrus hops. Taste follows suit with grapefruit, pine, and pepper. Mouth feel is medium bodied, with a lingering bitter finish. Wow - another amazing beer out of Quebec. Apparently they’re not satisfied with cornering the market on strippers and poutine, now they’ve got to out-Belgium the Belgians! This is pure Belgian all the way - brilliant yeasty nose and minimal sweetness on the tongue. I’d’ve liked a little more clove phenol character, but this is world class regardless.

BOTTLE 75CL courtesy of bunget. Mulțumesc, Sergiu. Look: bright yellow-gold and hazy, giant creamy white head with good retention. Aroma: perfume, blond fruit, sweet citrus, tangerine, apricot, light spice, spicy herbal finish. Taste: fruit balanced by herbal spice and light phenolic finish.

Excellent!

Very nice, smooth but full bodied. Hops are not overpowering like many other similar beers. The name is a fitting match considering the quality. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

weaselkenievil (1606) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2014
Bottle thanks to MesandSim, sterling work for the beer cause as ever. Slightly hazy gold with a thin to medium white head. Aroma is fairly subtle but it’s all there! You get a sniff of the strength which I like, hardly noticeable in the flavour. Just hugely drinkable and tasty. Peach, pear, great mouthfeel. Cake. Lemons. Sweetness is bang on. Never had anything from this brewery before, this really is a great beer.

dresden (779) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - APR 25, 2014
Pours a hazy golden with loads of fizzy white head. Aroma is initially belgian yeast, fruity, caramel, slight pine. As it warms though some of those citrus hops come through. Taste is nice, sweet and sticky, hoppy but certainly not that hoppy. Enjoyable.

fhoublon (312) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2014
Bouteille de 750 ml de la cuvée 2007 achetée chez Bière Expert à St-Jérôme au coût de $12.99. Dégustée le 1er juillet 2009 (Dominus Vobiscum glass). Bière blonde voilée tirant sur le doré. Mousse énormément, col blanc très très épais, pas uniforme (genre meringue) et très persistant. Très très effervescente (bulles fines). Arôme de levure, de miel et de crème. Alcool bien présent mais ne ressort pas trop, assez sucrée et peu amère. Goût de levure marqué, de miel et d’épices. Finale plutôt sèche et épicée. Cette bière est complexe et bien équilibrée, se boit facilement malgré l’alcool. Cette bière est excellente et comparable aux meilleures belges, elle n’a aucun défaut flagrant.

Reimer96 (1159) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 1, 2014
Pours a lightly hazy golden color with a big frothy white head and lots of lace up the glass. Aroma of citrus hops, light fruity esthers, peppery phenols, cloves, alcohol and some spicy earthy hops. Taste is grapefruit, pine, spicy saaz hops, light fruits, spicy peppery phenols, Belgian yeast and a nice alcohol warming on the finish. Nice semi dry finish with medium carbonation. Excellent Belgian golden strong ale... Best I’ve had to date!
