Bottle (500 ml). Clear golden with a huge creamy white head and nice lacing. Aroma of belgian yeast, spices, malt, fruits and citrus. Taste of malt, belgian yeast, spices and slight bitter finish. Medium body. Not so complex but well balanced and easily drinkable. Very good Belgian Ale!

BeerGolem (683) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 14, 2012
Bouteille 500 ml, achetée chez Peluso (Montréal). Servie dans un verre trappiste. Excellente bière, dans laquelle on retrouve la touche de Charlevoix. Robe dorée-ambrée, léger collet blanc et dentelle. Arôme floral avec houblon et levures belges. Quelques notes fruitées. Le gout est semblable. Légère amertume d’agrume en finale. Excellent équilibre. Corps juste assez robuste. Rafraichissante et pas trop lourde.

mcberko (6568) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 11, 2012
500mL bottle, pours a clear golden blonde with a large frothy white head. Aroma is big on the Belgian yeast, cereal malt, and some light fruits. Flavour is very pleasantly yeasty, doughy and fruity (with bananas, apples and pears), lightly hoppy as well. Finish leaves a yeasty, doughy and lightly fruit combination. Very pleasant and easy-to-drink. Great one.

Hum. Épices belges et soupçon d’herbes et d’agrumes. Bon équilibre. Alcool pas trop présent. Illustration sur l’étiquette douteuse.. mais très bonne bière!

Spab (2422) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 15, 2012
500 ml bottle from Premier Wine and Spirits (Halifax). Pours a cloudy bright golden colour with modest-sized white head. Aroma is Belgian yeast with a fairly prominent spiciness. Flavour is also quite yeasty with some fruit notes (banana, apple) and spices/herbs. Medium body; active carbonation. Straight-forward and nice.

BeerBeCue (103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 27, 2012
500ml bottle poured into tulip. Pours a nice golden yellow with a equally nice big head. Very beautiful. Aroma is of belgian yeast, spices, coriander, and floral hops. Can’t seem to be able to describe the malt aspect on this one though...Taste is a well-balanced medium/low-sweet and same thing for the bitterness. Body is rather full and texture is creamy. Carbonation is pretty lively, if you ask me, and finish is medium in lenght and on the bitter/hops end. Overall a really nice brew, but it’s from Charlevoix so it ain’t a big surprise. I’ve yet to have been deceived by them in fact. Well done!

Clear golden colour with a large frothy white head. Sweet, honey citrus aroma. Clean crisp refreshing beer. Little spicy, herb and yeast tangy finish

radiomgb (2249) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 7, 2012
Hazy golden yellow in colour with a large white head, good retention, good lacing. The aroma is of yeast, apples, some bananas, spice, light alcohol, pale malts. The flavour is slightly sweet, lightly bitter, some yeast and very light alcohol, herbal and fruity. Sweet mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, some spice and yeasty.

Um, this is pretty good. Wonderful balance between the spice and sweetness, alcohol well hidden.

500ml bottle from Marché Omni in Gatineau, Quebec.
Opened on April 4, 2011.
Bottled on December 21, 2010.
