blankboy (5797) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 5, 2008
My Bottle (750ml) shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jerc, mabel & tupalev. 2008 vintage. Pours a slightly hazy yellow-orange with an average size white head. Aroma’s sweet and yeasty along with a bit of fruit and spices. Flavour’s the same: Sweet, yeasty and fruity but I find the lightly hoppy finish a little iffy, not sure why. I get no alcohol at all which is impressive -- is this really 10%? Average bodied. Nothing great but still decent, I didn’t mind it.

GregClow (2812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 20, 2008
Bottle shared with blankboy, HogTownHarry, jerc, mabel & tupalev - courtesy of blankboy. Bright golden with a small white head. Aroma is sourish and slightly yeasty, with that indescribable note that appears in so many middle-rate Quebec beers. Thin body. Flavour has fruity notes of chardonnay, a bit of spice, mild yeast - kinda reminds me of a saison, actually. Not too bad despite the so-so aroma - although I find the 10% alc hard to believe, seems more like 6% or 7% to me.

jercraigs (7330) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 15, 2008
2008-07-11. Golden yellow with a modest white head. (3+) Lightly yeasty aroma with touches of alcohol and fruit notes. Light alcohol in the flavour is restrained considering the alcohol content. Light fruit, hints of the wine though perhaps I am looking for it - I’m not sure if I would have picked it out without knowing it was there. Average palate. Decent but a bit dull.

HogTownHarry (5983) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2008
Bottle (750ml). Shared by blankboy with gregclow, jerc, mabel & tupalev. Clear pale amber, small wispy whitish head. Aroma reminds me of a dry, light hefeweizen - fruity (banana, apple) and mildly spicy - sweet and clean. Taste - strong apple, slightly oxidized, mild alcohol (10%? really?), sweet yeast, light banana, but a little thin. Weak body, mild carbonation, slightly papery in the finish - has that "Quebec" character I can’t define --- but it’s there.

french tickler (649) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 2, 2008
Shared with Pyrozoid

App.: Cloudy orange poor with a thin off white head.

Aromas: Apple, creme brulé, honey, caramel, bananas and coriander

Palate: Acid, overpowering carbonation at first... alcohol, lightly sweet and nicely bitter... lightly shalky

Flavors: Apples, white cranberries... bananas...

Notes: There’s something throwing me off taste wise... is it the chalkyness? Over-carbonation?...

GoLdFiNgEr (111) - La Pocatière, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 7, 2008
Blonde impressionnante à 10%. Le fort pourcentage ne paraît pas au goût. Teinte légèrement brouillée. Bière très pétillante avec petit goût de champagne et de vin blanc. Légèrement fruitée et florale à la finale. Tirant plus vers un vin blanc qu’une bière.

EnSiFeRuM (501) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2008
Bouteille de 750 ml. La bière est de couleur jaune paile légèrement trouble. La mousse est imposante du début jusqu’à la fin. Au nez on découvre des arômes de poire, de pomme, de raisin, d’alcool, de champagne et de poivre. En bouche la bière a un bon corps et possède des flaveurs semblable à ce que le nez avait détecté antérieurement, c’est-à-dire le raisin, l’alcool, le champagne, la pomme et la poire. La finale est poivrée et sucrée. Le 10% d’alcool est bien camouflé.

Lubiere (9423) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 9, 2006
Hazy golden ale with a thick white head. Sweet white wine aroma. Rather sweet malt with alcohol notes and dryish finish. Light bodied. Mondial 2005.

rederic (2883) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 3, 2005
On tap at Vices et Versa, hazy amber-orangeish hue, with a shy white head, with floral hop,, fruity, chardonnay grapes aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate, with a sweet acidic chardonnay grapes, tartness and winey accent, leading to a dry sirupy vinous finish.
