Originally rated May 2009. Thanks to Driss for this one (brought back from Quebec City). Comes in a wine bottle, hence the Chardonnay. Pours a hazy rich golden colour with a white wine head and has good lacing. Kind of smells like a witbier (or a blond on the lees) with some other scent I cannot put my tongue on (like cheese or almost farm aromas). The wine is present in the taste. Sparkling mouthfeel with blonde malt. The alcohol is very well hidden. Interesting beer, mixing the Chardonnay and beer together. One of the better brews from La Barberie.

Bottle 500ml. Thx Yann. Pours golden with low white head. Aroma is of apples, fruits, wine, very slight sugar. Taste is of apples, sugar, fruits, malt. Palate: Medium body. Overall: Lots of apples/grapes. Good. Better than expected.

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.

750 mL bottle. A lovely, clear copper-orange with a thick, off-white head. It fades, but never fully disappears. Lots of active bubbles. Fruity sweetness (peaches and sweet apple) with some citrus and grassy malt on the nose doesn’t add up to much. The grape shows up in the flavour and the aftertaste, and it’s more of a dryish grape juice than a wine flavour. The malt hides underneath, and is a little thin. A (surprisingly) little alcohol appears at the end. Quite heavily carbonated, and not as full as it should be. An interesting one; not great, but certainly worth a try.

750ml bottle. Pours hazy orange with huge head. Lots of carbonation on the glass. Aroma is spicy and fruity (orange). Taste is a bit dry (white wine like). Taste is light green grapes (white wine like). Low carbonation on the palate. Alcohol completely hidden. Interesting beer. Glad I’ve tried it. Rating #42.

VT (1795) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - APR 10, 2013
500 ml bottle. Pours a veiled golden with a nice white head. Aroma is malted cereals. Flavor is pale malt, very sweet, a touch of wood, maybe some white grapes, too? Finish is slightly acidic, grapes. Medium body, average carbonation, sticky mouthfeel. Nice, strong, golden ale with an interesting twist to it.

Bouteille 750 ml. 10%. Blonde, effervesncente, mousse blanche. Arôme de levure, fuitée. En bouche, se boit très bien, douce, fruitée, agrumes un peu de levures. Des bulles. Très bonne.

Blonde qui libère, sans surprise, des flaveurs très avinées rappelant parfois le champagne (bas de gamme il faut dire). Notes acidulées en fin de bouche. Effervescence forte mais de circonstances. Belle couleur dorée franc. Mélange bien balancé, effet réussi.

Bière à la tignasse blonde-orangée, légèrement voilée, coifée d’une bonne mousse. Le nez est léger et fruité, comme le vent qui arrive d’un endroit... euh fruité. En bouche, l’alcool enrobe les arômes fruitées et le tout est porté par des teintes à la fois levurées et épicées. Ça se boit dangereusement bien pour une bière qui titre à 10% d’alcool au volume. J’aime beaucoup; il s’agit de l’une des meilleures cartes entre les mains de la Barberie.

Bouteille 750ml, embouteillée le 26 mai 2009. Couleur orangée trouble, peu de mousse blanc cassé disparaissant très rapidement. Arôme fruité, acidité, vineux, vinaigre, cidre. Goût vineux léger, malt, caramel pâle, légère astringence. Carbonation moyenne-faible, corps moyen.
