Quevillon (2531) - Boisbriand, Quebec, - JUN 2, 2013
Drank from a bottle at the 20th Mondial de la Bière, May 30, 2013. Black, no head. Aroma of smoked malt, spicy herbs and small ripe fruit. Taste of dark malt, a little smoky, notes of grapes, sweet finish. This beer is as funky as the label!

McNeillR (1242) - SCOTLAND - OCT 1, 2014
Pours brown lemonadey - dark but bright in colour, visible carbonation and a neat off white head. Nose is cheap sugary bakery and a heft dusting of brown sugar. No escaping the plummy/raisin dark sweetness on the initial taste, lightly sweet but more chewey wholesome with it being so up front. This smooths out the rest of the taste, doesn’t really prick up in bitterness at any stage although the carbonation does it’s best. Finish is blended choc drink, very clean and a tad unsatisfying on the linger - but at best very drinkable for an odd high ABV saison.

"Dark brew, aroma full of cherries and chocolate, plum and spice. The strength shows a little, but it’s not hot. Ends up being a tasty blend of fruit spice ad cocoa in equal measures."
