Bottle @ tasting. Aroma is malty apples with caramel, toffee and more apple. Flavour is huge sugary apple caramel alcohol tangy fruity zesty madness. Wow. Not sure if I like this, but definitely special.

On tap at Dieu du ciel. The color is a hazy gold with a thick beige head.The aroma is of herbs and fruits.The taste also of herbs like anis,nutmeg and others as for fruits it was mostly bananas.The finish in the mouth was bitter but not to much.

Un verre à Montréal. 5.3%. Une robe jaunâtre et opaque. Un col mousseux modérément généreux. Une dentelle. Un nez bien occupé par les épices. Un doux parfum de blé acidulé. Une banane écrasée, des herbes et du citron. Une fois bien tempéré, l’anis se dévoile davantage que la muscade. Des saveurs a priori fortes en muscade et pratiquement mentholées par la présence de l’anis. Des houblons qui surprennent et toujours cette banane qui traverse le chemin de mes papilles. Un blé accompagnateur et mordant. En bouche, un corps construit selon les normes de la maison. Une finale totalement dominée par les épices et par une amertume marquée par des houblons herbeux. Pas un fou de la muscade mais, dans ce cas-ci, cela fonctionne très bien.

Dégustée en fût sur place. De couleur dorée-jaune et opaque. Nez de levures fruitées (agrumes, abricots, notes de bananes et de pêches), d’épices (moyen de clou de girofle, notes de cannelle, traces de muscade), moyen de blé avec des notes de sucre bonbon et des traces de gommes balloune. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture un peu crémeuse. Goût de levures épicées (moyen de clou de girofle, notes de gingembre et de cannelle, traces de muscade) et fruitées (abricots sucrés, moyen d’agrumes, traces de bananes) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de blé légèrement asséchant avec des notes de sucre bonbon et des traces de pain puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère amertume de levures avec des notes herbeuses. Post-goût moyen et aux notes sèches, composé de notes amères de levures fruitées (zest d’agrumes) et épicées avec quelques traces d’alcool. (automne 2006)

Aroma as mentioned has anise, some bitters and gin, (didn’t get nutmeg) hazy yellow, tiny white head, lace. Flavour of wheat is overwhelmed by anise and nutmeg mix, seems like lemon gin, a bit unusual, for my taste, but I applaud the novelty here. Another unique offering.

PilsnerPeter (3031) - Flushing, New York, USA - JAN 8, 2009
Tap at the Brewpub: Pours cloudy light yellow with minimal white head. Zesty wheat dominates the nose, with a touch of old lemon peel and dusty phenols. Crispy feel with a perfumy/citric flavor. Touch of lemon peel here as well, with a anisette suggestion and a white pepper presence as well. Pretty good, not great.

jercraigs (9041) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 16, 2006
Lightly hazy golden yellow body with a creamy white head (3+). Moderate licorice and anise notes in the aroma, tough to tease apart spices. Stronger anise in the flavour, with a milder nutmeg partners, and light bitterness in the finish lingers in to the aftertaste along with the anise. (8+) Average palate is pleasantly effervescent. I very much liked this one, but I don’t know that I could consume more than a glass or two in a sitting.

Quevillon (2728) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 27, 2006
Bu sur place en fut (10 oz). Jaune blanche très pale et peu brumeuse, mince collet. Arome légé de blé et de muscade. Petit goût de muscade, un peu de blé, pas si épicé mais amère.

rederic (3228) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 23, 2006
Hazy yellow honey hue, with a small white head, wheaten bananaish nose, with a nice anise spicy accent, completed by a faint absinth liquorish note, with a citrus fruitiness follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a zesty wheaty, spicy character, of anise, nutmeg, with a gingerbread and a subtle liquorice note, a mild milkiness mouthfeeling, with a citrus fruits tones, leading towards a wheaten spiciness finish.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 21, 2006
Very cloudy yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of spicy banana, very herbal with anis other herbaceous plants. Body is rather full for a witbier, full of bready malts, cereals and wheat. Very yeasty too, really felt alive with banana, lemon and peach flavours. The spices that I got in the nose also appear in the taste but are not as dominant. This is a superior witbier that breaks the boundaries of the style. Seems to brewed only once a year during the early days of winter hence its name First Snow (Première Neige). Important Warning: in Montreal saying out loud that you are looking forward for the First Snow may generate violent reactions from the locals.
