Draught, Bateau de Nuit. Hazy straw. Thin head. Aroma is floral, pink peppercorns, and lots of hops. Spicy, sweet and fruity with coriander in the finish. Good, balanced character. Fun, tasty, very quebecois beer. Effortlessly good.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at Hrvati. Pale golden pour with a thin white head. The aroma is very rich with a lovely combination of soft cinnamon and clove. There also seems to be a bit of ginger and a lovely bit of malt sweetness. There is a great yeast contribution in here. Moderate bitterness that helps to balance the sweetness. It’s a really lovely brew. Rich and pretty delicious. Fairly warming. Me likey.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On Tap, 8% alcohol winter 2004 batch. Cloudy light golden body with a small white head. Huge aroma of spices (nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, coriander), very complex. Cloves and banana remind a good german weizen, but such spices complexity is uncommon outside Belgium. This is a decadent wit that makes you wonder how all those flavours can blend together. Good creamy velvety body. Decadent and flavorful altogether, an imperial wit in which the alcohol remain unnopticeable despite being 8%.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Hazy golden with a thick, lasting white head. Aroma is intensely spicy, clove and cinnamon (cloves will always dominate cinnamon), with underlying orange, and on the deep inhale the alcohol is definitely there. Spicy entry, again lots of clove and cinnamon, but the midpalate is supported by generous wheat, and the finish brings lighter orange and cardamom with a surprising amount of bitterness. Mouthfeel is creamy (must be the oats in here?) and leans toward heavy, but it goes down so easily! How can a wheat-based beer be heavy? This one is trying . A terrific "imperialized" witbier.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught. At Dieu du Ciel. Pale clear gold pour with a small white head. Aroma was spicy, fruity and lightly yeasty - like a pungent saison, very fragrant and clover-sweet. The taste was apple, alcohol, spice and sweet, sweet malt - good, warming. My note on mouthfeel: "alc! - sugary ... 3" - had a fairly long, moderately boozy sweet finish.
