The most notable thing about this was the aromatic aftertaste, which I really enjoyed.

punkska101 (1763) - Chambly, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 24, 2012
bottle labeled 09.2011. A: citrusy, some burnt caramel / roastiness App : clear dark copper color with lasting white head with good lacing . T/P : body is medium finish is bitter and is medium long. The more you drink it, it gets less bitter you switch to a dry finish. The kind you would get from the usage of roasted malt. Average carbonation O : Good like the "dry" finish on that beer and the bitterness. If I had to change a thing I would put more emphasis on aroma hops.

pours hazy golden-orange with a nice white head, some retention and lacing. fresh spicy malts and hops - peppery orange blossom water, hint of toastiness, leafy-grassiness for a short but assertive finish. floral notes. average carbonation, light body - somewhat almost a watery mouthfeel. not an amber fan, but i enjoy the freshness and spiciness in this one.

MartinT (9411) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 4, 2009
My Bottom Line:
Earth-covered pine needles dominate the orangey fruitiness in this lean and frothy hoppy quencher.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-There are lots of yeast chunks swirling under the sticky layer of foam, somewhat bothering the cloudy dark amber’s potential.
-This beer’s effervescence is almost Belgian-like, or above 3.0, if you prefer.
-The hop personality is much like a northerly forest floor; earthy, coniferous, a tad leafy and a bit humid as well.
-The decent bitterness is rather resinous, adding some character to the ending dryness.
-The malt structure could be improved here; as is, it does not offer much mroe than light caramel. There are some watery passages as well.
-There are yeasty proclivities throughout.

Bottles; merci Louis!

Boutip (5951) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 12, 2009
Bottle: Poured a deep hazy amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of caramel malt with light toffee. Taste is also dominated by some caramel malt with light toffee notes and a dry finish that is not as hoppy as I had expected. Body is full with limited filtration and good carbonation. Well done for style that is not the most exciting.

cfrancis (3164) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 9, 2010
Pours a cloudy yellow amber with a big frothy white head. Aroma is malt and hop, with slight floral. Taste is mainly malt and a mild hoppiness. Slight smoke in the aftertaste with a floral mix. Interesting beer.

Light hazy light amber coloured beer with little carbonation and a very large white head. Clear hoppy hinted aroma. Full light sprankling hoppy palate. Finish is dry, hoppy, hints of hopflowers with a long bitter ending. not bad.

Le liquide a une robe cuivrée lourdement embrouillée. La tête mousseuse fait belle figure et est résistante. Une large dentelle est observée. Le nez est piqué par des arômes de houblons qui transpirent la pinède. Des effluves fruités timides apparaissent à travers un caramel qui manque d’affirmation. Au goût, les houblons sont bien présents et développent une amertume qui me semble être résineuse. Le malt développe de très légères saveurs caramélisées. En bouche, le liquide, qui manque de corpulence, a une effervescence modérée et une texture douce et légère. En finale, l’amertume des houblons s’accroche derrière la langue avec modération et grande gentillesse.
