Cloudy golden pour with a thin white head. Pleasant aroma of yeast, wine and fruits. Flavor of yeast, hops, fruits and wine along some moderate sweetness. The body is light to medium with a creamy texture and soft carbonation.

In short: A strong and vinous Belgian blonde ale with a strong barrel character that manages to remain refreshing. Excellent.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Cloudy blonde body topped by a medium white head
In long: Light but pleasant nose of grapes, some tropical fruits and some floral notes. Taste is sweet and vinous (white wine), tropical fruits, floral notes reaching flower juice territory, strong wood barrel presence. A light but pleasant barrel wilderness really raises the score for me, this is no Jolly Pumpkin but the barrels did add a little wild note. A little tannic at first but quickly grew on me and I found the second half of my glass more pleasant than the first, the mark of an excellent beer. I like the regular Rigor Mortis Blonde but this is a major improvement over the regular version. I don’t remember seeing such an improvement after a few months of maturation since my 6th grade sweetheart gained a full cup size in a single semester.

On tap @ DDC. Nose is great. Big notes of fruity yeast. Quite citrusy. Tiny wild/funky hint. Taste is very yeasty, fruity and citrusy. Some hints of mango. Nice bitterness. Very surprising !

Verre de dégustation, au 11e anniversaire de DDC! Arômes de chêne et notes vineuses. Robe blonde et trouble, belle petite mousse et effervescence moyenne. En bouche, le chêne et les notes fruitées vineuses sont très présentes. On remarque également un malt légèrement sucré et les esters de la levure. Finale légèrement astringente de tanins de chêne. Une bonne bière, à déguster en petites quantités.

Hazy blonde with a nice lace. Intense and beautiful nose of esters, red currants and light hops. Full bodied, a little vinous, with the oak taking a large part of the aromas away. It was really nice enjoying this one, but hard to drink a whole glass. I found that the oak became more and more present with each sip, leaving some stickiness and tannins on my tongue. A little bit too oaky for this beer I believe, but nevertheless, flavors were great.

Quevillon (2928) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 20, 2009
Bu sur place au 11e anniversaire le 19 septembre 2009, en fut 20 oz). Blonde miel brumeuse, mince collet. Arome d’agrume sûrette parfumés et un peu épicé, un peu d’orge malte. Goût d’agrume malté des notes d’herbes savoureuse, quelques notes d’épices funky. Une méchante amélirstion de l’original, ma bière de l’anné 2009!
