Un olfactif définitivement Chardonnay, pierreux, fruité; on dirait du vin à s’y méprendre. De petits fruits confits s’y dégagent également avec de petites notes de citron. Beau profil olfactif. Visuel: Plutôt ambrée que blonde, claire sans la lie, mousse d’épaisseur moyenne qui se maintient bien et de texture mi-crémeuse mi effervescente. Elle colle légèrement et y laisse quelques traces. Gustatif: Le vin prends beaucoup de place en attaque avec une forte présence de sucres. On dirait un vin fortifié. Les saveurs rappellent le sucre à glacer, les pâtisseries avec en arrière plan ce petit coté acidulé du Chardonnay. L’équilibre entre les sucres du malt et le vin est bien dosé. Les houblons ne s’expriment pas beaucoup et l’action se passe surtout entre les sucres et l’acidité. La texture est moyenne et l’effervescence tranquille. Si l’on fait abstraction que ce breuvage est en quête d’identité, il n’en demeure pas moins un excellent apéro ou un bon digestif. Est-ce un vin...une bière...Hum?

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.

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.

presario (4903) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 12, 2009
750ml bottle purchased near DDC. Orange-amber. Huge head. A slow trip along the tongue starts orange citrus moving to sour lemon cream in the middle with a chalky shivering finish. A quicker drink gets more comfortable. Wine is most predominant in the finish and aftertaste but does build through the bottle. Too small a sample would be hard to come to grips with.

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.

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.

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?...

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.

TheJester (2542) - 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.
