LadySusan (766) - Ste-Therese, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 28, 2009
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.

radiomgb (2686) - 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.

Quevillon (2928) - 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!

Eructoblaster (3891) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 7, 2010
On tap at Les Brasseurs du Temps (Gatineau, QC). Hazy amber body topped with a decent off-white creamy head. Nice, fresh malty/hoppy aroma with floral and herbal hints. Its sharp hoppy taste carries floral and grapefruit notes. Ends with a good bitter finish. Enjoyable.

Pours a clear copper color with a thin white head. Pleasant aroma of hops, yeast and fruits. Good flavor of fruits, hops and yeast. The body is light with a creamy texture and moderate carbonation. This is a well-done, enjoyable, belgian ale.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 5, 2009
Tap at Brouhaha 1st anniversary party. Pours a deep copper amber with a frothy moslty white head. Aroma is yeasty, phenolic slight wine like, tannic, grapey, ligth dark caramel notes, and fruity esters- some apple. Flavor is slight malts, slight hops- phenolic yeast, wine-like, grape skin, and fruity esters gets slight solvent and fusel. Dry finish though, but a bit slick and astringent.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 25, 2009
In short: A clean, slightly spicy and moderately toasted Belgian ale with a little je-ne-sais-quoi. Good
How: Tap at Brouhaha, Montreal
The look: Clear copper body topped by a long-lasting small off-white head
In long: A yeasty nose is citrus undertones. A little spicy. Some burnt grass. Some crisp caramel, fresh grass, citrus juice. Clean and refreshing. Fizzy carbonation I’m not sure what role the champagne yeast plays here but there a little “something” about this beer that cannot put into words. Good but not very good. Not an original brew but certainly doesn’t feel common either. One of the too-many pints I had at Brouhaha first anniversary party. But the way I see it, if God is truly watching us, the least I can do is be entertaining.
