Mince col de mousse sur une liqueur cuivrée presque dorée. Mince. Au nez, elle a des relents de céréales, de sucres et de fruits jaunes. Elle rappelle vraiment une blonde aussi en bouche, mais avec du corps, une belle rondeur sucrée aux fruits, et une petite d’amertume finale, juste pour dire. C’est sans doute l’une des bières les plus conventionnelles de Charlevoix, mais ça ne lui enlève pas ses qualités et ses mérites. Très agréable, mais convenue.

Belle couleur dorée, avec une mousse blanche généreuse. Bouquet de houblon, de parfums floraux (citron subtil). En bouche, l’amertume est d’abord très évidente. Cette rousse plutôt pâle nous amène des notes de zeste de citron, de pain, de houblon. Vraiment un bon petit produit qui amène une finale amère à souhait. J’adore les étiquettes des produits «Vache folle», de cette microbrasserie qui est l’une de mes favorites au Québec. Bon produit! Cheers!

BreWedge (333) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 9, 2013
500 ml bottle. Pours a very light, clear amber with a massive head. Aroma is subtle but brings fruit and mild floral scents. Taste has a fairly assertive hop bitterness and very mild biscuit but not much else of interest. Get a little bit of alcohol and the chalky grain flavors typically associated with lagers and pilsners. Relatively thin, moderate carbonation and a fairly bitter lingering after-taste.

Outre l’étiquette, cette bière est le prolongement de la qualité de cette microbrasserie. Équilibre somptueux entre le malt, la levure et le houblon...on croit prendre une London Pride ESB mais non, c’est québécois. Une excellente bière.

tom10101 (3018) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 21, 2012
Bottle (500 ml). Clear orange/golden with a medium fully lasting creamy off-white head and solid lacing. Aroma is of malt, flower and fruits with a touch of sweetness. Taste is moderately sweet with malt, flower and slight bitter finish. Mouthfeel is slightly dry. Medium body. Extremely drinkable but not so complex and quite different from othe EBS I’ve tasted so far. A pretty enjoyable beer!

HeistAlmighty (1145) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - OCT 8, 2012
500ml bottle. Good colour and head on this one, but crystal clear. Taste and smell are a nice balance of bitter hops, malt, biscuit and a touch of fruit. Body was smooth and not to heavy or thin. Overall, a really enjoyable ESB.

Smooth hoppy flavor. Grassy, hops. Honey provides a sweetness to add balance. Golden pour with thick white head that laces the glass. Really good beer. 082012

Hoppy and refreshingly bitter with a lingering aftertaste of citrus and herbs at 40 IBU. Far from mundane! Great beer from a great Quebec micro! Purchased in Wakefield, QC @ Depanneur Bonne-Heure

pours straw golden. large thin head which disperses quickly. Aroma is caramel and creamy with a hint of grassy hops. taste is incredibly smooth with caramel flavours with a mildly bitter after taste. very pleasant and thirst quenching. palate is medium to heavy bodied creamy with low carbonation. long lightly bitter finish. overall the one word i can use to describe this beer is creamy and delicious. big fan of this beer.
