Quevillon (2452) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 7, 2009
Bu à Brouhaha pour leur premier anniversaire, le 4 juin 2009, en fut (12 oz). Ambrée claire, mince collet avec un peu de dentelle. Arome d’orge et d’avoine malté, avec des notes de vin licoreux. Goût d’orge et d’herbe gazeux, beaucoup de grains et une sensation houblonneuse, finission un peu amère. C’est bien mais c’est aspect champenoise qui ne m’agasse, mais autrement dit le score serait plus haut!

radiomgb (2220) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2009
Rich golden-amber in colour with a lasting off-white head, excellent lacing. Aroma is quite floral with some spice and a moderate sweetness. Flavour is very herbal, floral, caramel sweetness, quite bitter, some yeast. Bitter mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes quite bitter, long and herbal.


A very floral and herbal Saison, not the best from Charlevoix but still pretty enjoyable.

Draught at Mondial 2009 in Montreal, Quebec.

Sampled on June 5, 2009.

Bottle, Mondial 2009. Amber with a nice fizzy and creamy head. Aroma is yeast and some hops. Taste is quite sweet (brown sugar). Bitterness is faint but present all along and on the finish. Quite sweet and fruity.

Diogène (1066) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 22, 2009
On tap at Brouhaha. Clear golden with a thin white head. Average retention. Aroma is malty with some spices, herbs and hops. Flavo is also malty with a slight touch of cognac, herbs, spices, fruits and hops. Medium to full body with a liquorous mouthfeel.

MJGG (945) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 5, 2009
Verre de 12 oz, d’un fût au 1er anniversaire du Pub Brouhaha. Arômes de levure belge épicée et de malt sucré. Robe cuivrée et claire, belle mousse, effervescence moyenne. Bien ronde et maltée en bouche, le malt caramel et le sucre d’orge sont à l’avant-plan et accompagnés d’une touche de levure fruitée et épicée. Finale douce et légèrement sucrée. Gagnerait à être légèrement plus sèche.

On tap at Brouhaha. The color is amber with a very thick off white head and a lot of lace. The aroma is of malt. The taste also of malt and caramel and the sweetness of fruits. Very pleasant in the mouth and a good aftertaste.
