jercraigs (8153) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 16, 2006
Cask. Dark amber brown, good sized fluffy tan/off-white head and a bit of lacing. Hoppy, green, vegetable (celery?) notes in the aroma. More celery (but not...) in the flavour, pleasant moderate bitterness, caramel malt and an earthy celery bitterness and tang that is present throughout and lingers in the aftertaste. (I wonder now that I know what was in it, if it was the rye that I was having trouble describing). Light but very smooth palate. (3+) Good but not exceptional, couldn’t quite wrap my tastebuds around it.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2007 In short: A nice hoppy “dirty”rye beer
How: On tap at brewpub many times
The look: Partly cloudy dark copper body with a small beige head
In long: Very malty beer with a variable rye presence. Some pints I had very very rye-focussed and in other cases I could barely pick-up the rye. Variations between batches or a beer that changes a lot from fresh to a month old? I don’t know. There’s a strong earthy/tree bark taste that gives a somewhat dirty mouthfeel. Recent batches seem to get hoppier too with a pine-tree/tree bark flavour and a sharp bitterness. I think a strong hoppy edge fits in nicely. An interesting original beer. Amen.

Quevillon (2576) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 27, 2006
Bu sur place en fut (10 oz). Couleur cuivrée foncée, mince collet avec dentèle. Arome d’houblon mi-sucré pas trop fort. Bon goût d’houblon et de seigle amère, un peu sûrette.

radiomgb (2438) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 16, 2006
On tap at <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/Places/ShowPlace.asp? target=blank>Dieu du Ciel in Montreal at their 7th anniversary party. Deep amber in colour, thin dissipating off-white coloured head, minor lace. The aroma was of citrus hops, some caramel, rye, earthy. The flavour had some pine and citrus, earthy, some cookies and dark rye bread. Dry mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes lingering with a rather large bitterness and dry. Pretty good.

rederic (3156) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 2, 2005
Hazy amber hue, with a beige frothy head, floral hops, earthy note, grainy rye accent, leafy, even hint of pines in the aroma, follows through on a medium-bodied palate, with leafy, piney notes, floral hops, leading towards a lingering bitter finish.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 27, 2005
Strong rye, wet hay, light cotrus notes to the aroma. Opaque dark copper-brown with low, fine-bubbled, off-white head that diminishes to partial cover and thick ring. Pine, rye, orange flavours blend together nicely in the lead up to a fairly assertive bitterness. Smooth texture, lively carbonation fondles the tongue. On tap at the brewpub.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2005
Aroma has some malt and hops, fuzzy pomegranate colour, with a tiny tan head. Taste is a warming malt experience with some hard to place spicing. Medium bodied, creamy smooth and a dry finish. Very good.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2005
draught. deep copper-brown coloured body with a small head. rye essence becomes more apparent as the glass warms and is very inviting, there are also fruit and yeast notes. soft malt body and lots of rye flavour with a fairly low hop profile. balance is nice and easy drinking. very good.

Miguel (1181) - Saint-Ours, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 17, 2005
Robe brune aux reflets cuivrés surmontée d’une mousse beige fugace.Arômes de seigle, de café et de houblon. Saveurs de café, de seigle et de fruits rouges. Corpulente, dense même. Sirupeuse... L’aigre, l’acide, le sucré et l’amer sont bien balancés.
