GregClow (3096) - 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.

Pours a light golden yellow with a frothy white top. Aroma is slightly fruity with distinct grain backing. Taste is light and fruity but nothing interesting. At the 2012 Winterlude Winter Beers and Wines.

Metalchopz (3016) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 9, 2011
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.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 28, 2008
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!

TheJester (2418) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 5, 2009
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.

VT (2233) - 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.

Fred82 (2131) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 4, 2009
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.

sseb69 (1762) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 16, 2013
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.

lesifflebiere (1618) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 22, 2013
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.

Whatup14 (1493) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 28, 2012
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.
