probstblueribbon (2944) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2014
750 mL bottle from Bieropholie, served cool in a tulip glass shared with a buddy. Batch #9, bottled 01/04/13. Cloudy golden amber with a decent, rocky white head. Strong, peppery herbal notes, light wild funk, some esters and phenols, wet bread dough, a touch of honey. Medium body, creamy effervescence. A little tired, wheat, grassy green hops, peppery and herbal but restrained, very light funk; dry with fairly high bitterness and a pleasant wheat and ester finish. Probably would be a little better fresh, still good though.

Not bad for what it is. On the nose I get some citrus and pine, on the palate there is a little grassy flavor with that farmhouse funk, not much in the way of the malt. A little nice yeast on the finish too. Overall, decent beer for the price.

Boutip (4775) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 10, 2014
Bottle: Poured a hazy dirty beige color ale with a generous pure white foamy head with good retention and some great lacing. Aroma of dry noble hops with light rustic malt presence and bready yeast is very enjoyable. Taste is a very nice mix of dry noble hops with nice floral undertone with great rustic malt presence and some bready yeast notes. Body is full with great carbonation. This is the type of beers I would like to have access to on a regular basis – easy drinking with plenty of character.
