VeloVampire (625) - Parkdale, Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 16, 2009
750 ml bottle, courtesy of my brother - pours hazy yellow/orange, with some sediment. Wheaty aroma, and somewhat cidery too. Sour, but not off. Flavour of strong Belgian-style blond (Duvel-ish) mixed with wine. Bine? Wier? This is a strange one - not something I’d get again, but happy to have tried it out.

Probablement la meilleure de la barberie. Malter, fruiter, un peu seche, effervescente. L alcool est bien cacher. Maybe the best beer from La Barberie. Malty, fruity, a bit dry, fizzing. Alcohol hides very well.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 21, 2008
Bottle courtesy of glouglouburp. Pours copper with a nice white head. Smells of citrus, light pepper, dough, dry malt. Tastes of lemon zest, some nice dry malt. Mouthfeel is full with a nice tarte finish.

notalush (5171) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 17, 2008
Bottle purchased in Montreal - clear, fizzy gold, with a medium-sized ring of lace - fairly faint aroma - some light white grape, a little bit of sweetness, and a very mild white wine character - tastes like some kind of wine spritzer - like watered down, lightly sweetened white wine - the alcohol is well hidden, until the beer warms, and then it’s pretty apparent - a little bit of lemony character, a little bit of grape skin - it’s not terrible, just pretty boring.

minch25 (577) - Medford, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 29, 2008
UPDATED: APR 22, 2009 Rerate: 4-22-09.
Aroma: mandarin orange, tangerine, almost kumquat. Medium/thick even beige head; rich orange color, effervescent. Pleasant Belgian styled beer. Light orangey sweetness. Moderately yeasty, medium bodied. Not really a knock-out beer, but considering how easy it is to make crappy Belgian beers, it counts for something that this manages to be reasonably tasty and approachable.

Orig. rating: 9-29-08.
Pours mandarin orange color; thin head. Shy aroma - alcohol? spice? Orangey flavor; orange zest, yeasty. If you think about it, it does also taste like chardonnay, especially in the bitter oaky finish. Also grainy aftertaste. Medium body, light carbonation, potent effect. In short, worth trying but probably would not buy again.

Pyrozoid (361) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 6, 2008
(Dégusté avec french tickler) Une biere de couleur orange brumeux, avec presque pas de collet non-collant. Odeur d’alcohol, un peu fruité, miel et oranges. Saveur un peu salé, alcohol et également un peu épicé.

Boutip (4995) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 4, 2008
Bottle: Poured a hazy blonde color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consist of a very nice Belgian malt base with some spicy yeast and some light white grapes notes. Taste is also a very well balance mix between some spicy peppery yeast with some notes white grapes and a strong semi-sweet malt backbone. Great carbonation with a full body and no apparent alcohol. I really enjoyed that one and definitely like it then most of the other offering.

Bottle shared with Hogtown Harry, Blankboy, Jerc, Mabel, and GregClow, courtesy of blankboy. Medium yellow, small white head. Pleasant lemony aroma, yeasty as well. Nice taste - more yeast, lemon, light and floral. Good, refreshing. I apparently liked it more than most based on these scores!
