3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is really nice! Pours pale straw with limited head and a few fingers worth of spotty/clumpy lacing. Nose is grassy and almost horseblanket. Fruity notes, then some cereal and a long grassy bitterness. Taste is light sweet, medium bitter. Light body with very lively carbonation and a long lasting bitter finish. Great beer for the ABV!!

A la bouteille. Blonde d’un jaune pale trouble, belle mousse non persistante. Au nez : pas grans chose, un peu de levure. En bouche, franche amertume sèche, les houblons sont peu arômatiques, un peu de citron. Pas mauvais mais un peu décevant (dans mes souvenirs, elle est meilleure à la pression ...).

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (330 ml) @ Pub St-Alexandre (Québec). Best before April 2013. Hazy yellow golden with a medium white head and some lacing. Aroma of cereals, yeast, herbal notes, fainted hops and floral presence. Taste is about the same with the herbal presence being more prominent. Medium body. Low carbonation. Slightly dry. This was fairly drinkable despite being way too old, but the fainted hops make this beer way less interesting than what I think it could be fresh. I will have to revisit.
