Rastacouere (6137) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 5, 2014
Bottle released last week. Cloudy pale gold, spectacular rocky white head - abundant wheat and hops will do that to you. Tree and exotic fruits capture your attention from the start line, building up a juicy flavour profile with tuoches of earth occasionally sneaking in. At this hop level, the wheat is almost irrelevant, albeit it may very well be emphasizing the drinkability to another level. Very clean fermentation. Hard to decipher any esters amidst the potent aromatic hops, but there certainly is a lot of fruity flavours with a one way ticket to your brain. The bitterness climbs sip after sip; I had an initial feeling that it was actually kept in check, but it is definitely quite bitter in the end, just that there are plenty of aromas to match, so it does not feel one-dimensional nor a useless slap in the face. While it may not be mind-bending like the very top offerings from TDD, it is another extremely high quality beverage here, and the high drinkability make it all see so easy. Neat clean palate, cleasing engaging carbonation, relatively lean while feeling complete. Great job.

600 ml bottle in tulip glass. Color is cloudy golden yellow with a pale, white frothy head. Aromas are grapefruit, lichee, conifers with a touch of grains and Belgian yeast. Flavours are mainly tropical fruits. Citrus, grapefruit, mango, bonbon. A resinous hoppy aftertaste. Belgian yeast notes and grains are there but stay in the background. Quite high carbonation. Highly quaffable and drinkable!

BiereLuc (977) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 4, 2014
Jaune paille, trouble et bien mousseuse. C’est invitant. Le nez est franc, citronné et chargés de houblons frais. On flaire une pointe d’acidité. En bouche, il n’est plus trop question d’acidité, mais bien de fruits tropicaux étalés sur un lit de blé. C’est très goûteux, mais sans réelle lourdeur. À conseiller aux gens qui apprécient la Hopfenweisse des Trois Mousquetaires.

electrotype (254) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 4, 2014
Arôme rempli de houblons fruités. Une touche de levure se laisse aussi sentir. La bière est belle, la mousse tient le coup, c’est pétillant sans exploser de partout. En bouche, c’est fruité là aussi. La bière est amère, sans tomber dans l’excès, elle se boit très bien. Bon travail!

Minderbinder (2027) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 2, 2014
Bottle 600ml. Pours slightly hazy blond with medium beige head. Intense lacing. Aroma is of citrus, tropical fruits. Taste is of citrus, tropical fruits, strong bitterness, resin, slight phenols? Palate: Light-medium body. Medium carbonation. Overall: Pretty good. Pretty bitter. Lots of resin/vegetal stuff.

cargo150 (782) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 1, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 11, 2014 Bière dorée avec un col blanc respectable. Nez de céréales, de fruits tropicaux et d’épices. En bouche un mélange plutot balancé de céréales et de fruits tropicaux comme la mangue, fruits de la passion et les agrumes sur une moyenne amertume. Corps moyen, Carbonation moyenne. Excellente IPA Blanche!

Gethinbeer (2210) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 3, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2014 Light hazy golden pour with a thin white head. Citrus hop flavour, nice bitterness with a sweet fruit background. Refreshing beer.

mathieuc (1515) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 28, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2014 On tap at Bateau de Nuit a while back. Pours a light golden with a thin white head that offers good lacing. Nose is fruity x piny, tropical. Taste is of citrusy hops and only lightly sweet. Mouthfeel is juicy. Carbonation was medium and it was light to medium bodied. Nice one! Not sure what I would change in this recipe really so I’m not sure what is up with the score, I’ll revisit. (3.8)

Now released in bottles! Woohoo! Pours hazy yellow with a medium and creamy white head that leaves really good lacing. Nose is peppery and maybe a little skunky. It is fruity and feels fresh overall. Taste is moderately bitter and only lightly sweet, offers some fresh cereals and tropical fruits. Pils? Yeah, pils. Finish is bitter and herbal, of a good length. Body is light to medium, carbonation pretty high but this fits well with the witbier style I guess. Pretty good! (3.6)

Mango. Rich cereals, honey, passion fruit, pine, floral hops. Funky white IPA with a pretty high drinkability.

Un verre au Vices. Une robe qui est blonde. Un anneau de mousse qui ne fait pas long feu. Le début d’une dentelle. Un nez à la belge. Épices, céréales pâles, blé, herbes et agrumes sont responsables de la fabrication des parfums. Un goût épicé et très amer. Les herbes sont envahissantes. Les fruits montrent une timidité. La bouche est plaisante. Le corps est sculpté par des bulles vives. La texture est agréablement huileuse. La finale est assez prenante en notes herbeuses et en notes épicées.
