Verre de dégustation à la brasserie. Arôme: Odeur de caramel et d’épice. Apparence: Couleur ambrée. Carbonisation faible. Petit col qui forme une dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût d’épice et de caramel avec légère touche de sucré. Palette: Aucune amertume en bouche. Très agréable à boire. (Rating #50)

Pours a cloudy, reddish color with a thin creamy white head. Spicy aroma including cinnamon. Subtle flavor of spices and fruit with a sweet finish. Medium body, smooth palate. Very good, I make sure to sample it every year in the Christmas season.

MartinT (7860) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 5, 2002
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2012 The biscuity pale malt nose is followed by healthy fruity caramel...Spicy hops and these cohesive malt flavors lead to a balanced realm of nourishment and drinkability...Who else in North America but L’Amère à Boire would offer us such a rare style (a 15-degree Czech Polotmavé for crying out loud) for a refreshing Christmas?...

dhurtubise (568) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 16, 2002
This is a crisp, bitter red pilsner. It has a resounding Saaz hop bitterness that plays well with the malt charcter of the beer. Quite a unique product in North America.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 20, 2004
Mildly spicy hops play nicely with the caramel in the nose. Almost opaque amber-brown with decent, large-bubbled, off-white head that recedes to generous cover with some lacing. Caramel and toffee malt flavours dominate with a spicy hop flavour and decent balanced bitterness. Engaging carbonation on the tongue. On tap at the brewpub.

Marheb (2082) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 16, 2011
Clou de girofle, banane, caramel avec une moyenne amertume assez persistante. L’effervescence est active et soutenu. Très rafraîchissant.

czar (4443) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 20, 2013
tap on the premises. clear dark golden reddish pour with a nice light beige orange head, some retention and lacing. spicy and fruity malts, nutty caramel, absence of christmas spices which i’m delighted, grass and herbs. moderate carbonation, light body - oily, grassy-spicy balanced finish. solid brew.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 25, 2011
Dégustée en fût sur place. De couleur ambrée foncée et claire. Nez malté de caramel aux petites notes rôties, léger de fruits (agrumes, traces de raisins) avec des notes de sucre brun et de biscuits ainsi que des traces de houblon floral et d’épices. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture moyennement crémeuse. Très léger goût fruité (agrumes, traces de raisins) accompagné d’un léger goût de grains de malt rôti et de faibles notes épicées piquantes (cannelle) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de caramel doux aisni que des traces de biscuits et de sucre brun puis en finale l’on retrouve une très légère amertume de houblon herbeux (notes de foin). Post-goût moyen, légèrement amer de houblon herbeux avec de faibles traces de fruits (zest d’agrumes). (hiver 2006-07)

rederic (2960) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 15, 2006
Dark amber color, with a white -beige head, toasted malt nose, with a biscuity malt accent, subtle flowery hops, with a fruit note in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate, with a crisp toasted malt character, with a biscuity dough, a toffee accent, sweet graininess, with some fruity raisiny and date notes, leading towards a malty, faint hops bittering finish.
