Nahhhhhh, not my cup of tea. Not realy bitter, more cream. The colour is nice, a very lightly cloudy golden copper, but I found a weird chemical aroma and taste that numbed all other flavours. Mtl Beer fest 2006. Not gona try that again. Cheers

Jolie bière rousse, limpide et où flotte un épais col velouté se traînant au verre en une large dentelle. Des arômes un peu simplets de caramel et de résine. Elle est moyennement amère et légèrement sucrée. Elle est crémeuse, légère, finement effervescente et se termine sur une douce amertume.

Dégustée en fût au Saint-Bock. Nez légèrement fruité (agrumes), malté de caramel doux, de houblon floral aux notes citriques. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture à la fois légèrement crémeuse (azote) et aux notes huileuses. Goût légèrement amer de houblon flora (en arrière-goût toute la gorgée, avec des notes métalliques provenant de l’azote) puis légèrement fruité (agrumes) auquel se rajoute un goût malté de caramel doux et une finale légèrement amère de houblon herbeux. Post-goût moyen et un peu sec, légèrement amer de houblon herbeux etavec des notes fruitées (agrumes).

Lavender and vanilla join some toasty malts in the aroma. Amber brown body is topped by a short but dense, fine bubbled, off white (nitro?) head that coats the sides of the glass. Metallic otes are strong in the flavour and overpower the light toasted malts. Bitterness is fairly restrained. Some berry like fruitiness especially at the finish. Bland nitro smooth body with soft but uninspired carbonation. Sampled at Mondial 2006.

Sampled draught at the Mondial de la Bière in Montreal, 2006. Dark amber with a huge lasting head (I think this was served on nitro), nice looking and inviting at any rate....faintly soapy creamy vanilla, mushy grains in the nose, touch of caramelized malt....fairly bitter body, but its more mineralic/metallic than hoppy, and the body is very smooth in that nitro-milky way, which really doesn’t work well with the peppery harshness and spiciness that takes over at the finish. Ahhh another misfire from Barberie.

More of a cream ale than a bitter…Good caramel and citrusy bitterness…Tame like all of their products…
