Petite mousse crème sur cette boisson de feu, rouge-orange limpide, aux odeurs de noix, de boisé et de sucre d’orge. En bouche, plus sucré que prévu, c’est vraiment le sucre d’orge qui domine, avec des noisettes ensuite, le tout sur un alcool qui porte, et qui se conclut avec une petite pointe d’amertume. C’est un vin d’orge pour "débutants", ce qui ne signifie pas qu’il est raté ou simpliste, simplement accessible. Ses défauts sont plutôt du côté de son apparence, et sa minceur.

BiereLuc (765) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2014
(bouteille 750 ml) - Bière cuivrée peu mousseuse, scintillante et limpide. Le nez est tout en sucre d’orge avec un profil plus effacé de fruits confits. En bouche, les premières impressions sont sucrées et mi-amères. Le pétillement est faible... et lorsqu’il s’éteint, on découvre un arrière-goût de noisettes grillées. Je suis heureux de redécouvrir le lièvre avec ce produit qui gagne à être connu.

Bouteille 1L. 10%. Couleur ambrée-orangée claire, mousse beige. Arôme de boid et malt caramel. En bouche, douce, caramel écossais, notes de Scoth Ale, alcool, chêne. Finale avec l’amertume légère du chêne, chaleur de l’alcool. Je le trouve très bon ce Barley Wine.

VT (1298) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 17, 2011
Pours a clear, reddish amber with a nice white head. Smells of wooden cask, like an aged wine or bourbon. Tastes somewhat fruity. Heavy taste of wood, and a hint of vanilla. Definitely a whole different kind of beer, but I liked it.
