Quevillon (2577) - Boisbriand, Quebec, - MAY 31, 2013
Drank on tap (8 oz) at ther Montreal brewpub on May 29, 2013. Honey amber, medium head. Kumquats and sweet aroma of hops, very mild. Taste of dried kumquats, slightly hoppy, very dry bitterness. Too intense and I’m not a fan of disco!
Earlier Rating: 2/13/2013 Total Score: 3.7
Drank on tap (12 oz) at the brewpub on February 10, 2013. Honey blonde little head. Hoppy aroma kumquats (note: I do not know this fruit so I assume), a little juicy. Dry citrus taste with hints of green hops, fresh bitter herbs. I want to taste some kumquats!

Speedy_Charly (107) - Plaisance, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 3, 2015
Bouteille de 341ml au Marché des Brasseurs. Blonde très trouble avec une mince mousse blanche. Arôme d’agrumes, mangues/pêches et pin. En bouche c’est pareil, l’amertume de zeste d’orange attaque la langue en premier suivi du goût plus sucré de la mangue, le tout sur une note légèrement sapinée qui traîne en longueur. À déguster en accompagnement de poisson, poulet/citron ou même de fruits de mer.

Drake (9460) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAR 2, 2015
New England Bucket List Trip #152. Keg at St. Jerome. Pours a hazy amber with a thin frothy off-white head. Good head retention. Aroma of dark syrupy tropical fruits, toasted malt. The taste is tropical fruits, citrus zest, pale malt, raisin. Medium bodied, mild lingering bitterness.

freretoc (934) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAR 2, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 33cl à la maison, couleur blonde foncée, pas de mousse ni d’effervescence, en bouche attaque sur le kumquat assez forte, puis sur la mangue continuité sur le pamplemousse. Le manque d’effervescence lui fait clairement défaut, car elle manque de caractère.

pintbypint (2748) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 28, 2015
341ml brown bottle, 6.5% abv on the label. Ugly pour with floaties and haze, head is nice and big with a soapy sticky foam. Grapefruit and orange peel hop nose. Taste has orange, grapefruit and pine with light malt. Medium length aftertaste with grapefruits and orange, light bitterness. Pleasant beer, comes together well and drinks easily.

Diogène (1067) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 27, 2015
Bière orangée avec un col blanc qui laisse une belle dentelle sur le verre. Arôme d’agrumes et une touche de conifères. En bouche les kumquats se mêlent bien aux houblons américains avec une belle touche de céréales et une amertume bien présenté mais agréable. Un bel équilibre.

DuffMan (7227) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 24, 2015
Bottle. Hazy orange body, lasting white head. Oily orange rind aroma, coniferous undertones. Bitter orange and sweet pine flavours, long bitter finish. Really nice!

brokensail (12010) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 18, 2015
On tap @ Dieu du Ciel. Slightly hazed orange pour with a white head. Fruity, citrusy nose to this. Lots of orange and kumquat. Slight grapefruit peel. A touch of grass and pine. A little on the sweet side, but plenty of juicy citrus flavor. A big time kumquat and orange rind flavor. Some mild grapefruit and pine. Pretty dang nice.

piscator34 (2016) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 8, 2015
On draft. Clear gold in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of tropical citrus and dry pale malt. Definitely has a "not typical" citrus thing going on in the mouth, although I doubt I could identify it as kumquat specifically. But the tart citrus blends nicely with the grassy hop and light malt elements. Clean, but not overly sharp bitterness, and light bodied for it’s weight. Quite nice overall.

Jur (412) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 1, 2015
Draught @ Dieu du Ciel, Montréal. Hazy yellow, white head. Rounded, mild fruits (subtle kumquat), heavy hop. Well balanced.

Stoned99 (285) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 28, 2015
Bottle from William J.Walter Blainville. Aroma: oranges (kumquats), citrus, pines. App: hazy peach color with small white head. Taste and palate : medium body, light sweetness with light-medium bitter finish. Carbonation is average+. Overall: really refreshing even though it’s bitter. Like drinking a bitter and sparkling orange juice.
