robinvboyer (4175) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 13, 2009
orange pour with a huge white frothy head. Aroma of sour grapes, white wine, oak, and ripe fruit. Flavor was tart, but not too tart, with some wine flavors, and some slight fruits.

Eructoblaster (3889) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 6, 2013
Bottle - 500ml. Hazy golden body with lively carbonation and an average white foamy head. Malty/hoppy aroma with grassy and white wine hints. Taste is slightly misbalanced. It is dominated by malty flavors and carries some flowery and yeasty notes. Ends with a decent bittersweet finish. Drinkable.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2009 Cloudy golden pour with a thin white head. Aroma of grapes with some sourness. Flavor of grapes, yeast with some acidity. The body is light with a creamy texture and lively carbonation. I never expect much from this brewery, but this one is good. Previous rating : 6/3/6/3/13 3.1.

mathieuc (3377) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 7, 2012
Nothing too impressive here. Standard blonde with a fruity nose (expected for a Chardonnay beer). Maybe a little perfume too. Alcohol is not really hidden, maybe this would do good in a mulled drink? No apparent bitterness, just some grape tannins maybe (maybe not... I might be doing some associations). Would I drink again? Probably not. It is a stepup from the usual Barberie though.

rederic (3256) - 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.

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.
