Minderbinder (3297) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 6, 2014
On tap at Korrigane. Pours blond with low white head. Good lacing. Aroma is of fruits, malt, grain, bubblegum, esters (off), citrus. Taste is of malt, weird bitterness, sugar, alcohol (!?!), bubblegum, citrus. This is off. Palate: Medium body. Soft carbonation. Overall: Hmm. Not good. I tough the yeast was massively off, but maybe it is also caused by the grain? Anyways, this one features many major flaws. On the premices, I tough to myself this one was a new one, and maybe it would get better with time. Reading some reviews, I’m more and more concerned. Tweak this one for the love of gawd.

Clear gold pour thin white head. Aroma is lightly grainy, mineral and a tad metallic. Taste is quite mineral, old hops with no bite whatsoever and a grainy aftertaste. Palate is light with medium carbonation. Not offensive but quite uninteresting.

En fût chez Korrigane. 5%. Couleur jaune or. Arôme de mais et de malt. En bouche, douce et notes de céréales. Finale un peu mielleuse. Bonne blonde.

Lubiere (12940) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 29, 2010
A blonde golden ale with a very thin white head. In aroma, a lightly floral hops and a bit of solvents. In mouth, crisp malt with light herbal hops, and light astringent notes. On tap at brewpub, Nov. 6 2010

Pours a clear golden color with a thin white head. Average aroma of hops and honey. The flavor is pretty much the same, hops and honey, there’s also a malt presence and sweetness in the end. The body is light to medium with a creamy texture and moderate carbonation. Clean, but unexciting.

TaktikMTL (7068) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 22, 2008
En fût. Verre de 20 oz dégusté au Café Bistro Victoria (La Baie, QC). Arôme: Légère odeur de céréales et d’houblons. Apparence: La couleur est blonde. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Léger goût d’houblons avec une pointe de miel. Courte durée de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est mince avec une texture légèrement huileuse. Faible effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de miel en arrière goût. (Rating #1990)

MartinT (9411) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2008
My Bottom Line:
Polite leafy hops and lightly honeyed cereals converse in this quirky and perhaps tired Golden Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the misty blond.
-The mouthfeel is lean and the flavor profile is balanced throughout.
-The hoppiness can sometimes be perceived as vegetal.
-The finish is both dry and bitter, a weird combination that recalls dead leaves.
-Some vague fruitiness is perceived as well.

On tap at the brewpub.

Robe ambrée très claire surmontée d’une mousse beige mince. Arômes de malt et de houblon. Saveurs de houblon terreux et de malt caramélisé.

Ungstrup (34658) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 19, 2005
An orange beer with a small white head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of brewmash. The flavor is malty with a dry hoppy end, though without much bitterness.
