COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
La petite Buteuse est une blonde claire non filtrée aux bulles très fines. Son pétillement libère des effluves de citron issues du houblon cascade infusé à froid, enchevêtré de coriandre et du parfum typique de bonbon des levures belges. En bouche, elle offre le rafraîchissant de ses agrumes, le tout supporté par des saveurs croustillantes de malt pilsner. La petite Buteuse se veut donc une version plus sèche et vive que sa grande sœur, ce qui en fait une désaltération de choix.

pushkinwow (2014) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 18, 2013
On tap at National Capital Beer Festival. Slightly hazy pale yellow with a generous off white head. Light citrus, bit of wheat, some yeast with a very slight funkiness. Easy to drink, moderate+ carbonation, mild body, light bitterness that is refreshing with a somewhat dry yet chewy finish.

auerbrau (3177) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - JUL 30, 2013
On tap at The Farmhouse Tap - Burlington, VT. I haven’t had the regular Buteuse, so I can’t compared to full strength, but as a lighter version of a Belgian Ale, I found this watery and rubbery. The emergent yeast and spice character was a bit soapy and too phenolic for my tastes.

GT2 (8437) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUN 25, 2013
Tap at Beachwood Seal Beach. Clear golden pour, medium white head. Nose is doggy, ripe, animal. Funky lemon verbena and chemical. Taste is spritzy, lemon verbena, sugar, odd starchy stickiness. Not so great. Disappointing.

brokensail (10935) - Orange County, California, USA - JUN 23, 2013
Hazy golden orange pour with a white head. Pale malt aroma, yeast, white pepper, and some spicy hops and phenols. Apple and pear esters, too. The flavor has a dry malt profile to it. Cracker, some bread, and white pepper. Notes of yeast and apple, some grainy pear sweetness. Nice spicy and floral hop notes.

JoeMcPhee (8410) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 13, 2013
Pale golden pour with a thick white head and a bit of light haze. The aroma is lovely. Light honey and a bit of clean spiciness. A fresh bread/crackery malt component and some really peppery spiciness. Lean malt base and some nice crisp spice. A bit of pear ester and a touch of apple as well. Very lean and dry with a nice minerally bitterness. Dry and lovely.

Sammy (8644) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 5, 2013
On tap at Bar Volo. Cloudy deep yellow, lacey. A tad funky aroma. A dirty blonde. Carbonation is set on high side, still very drinkable blonde somewhat table Belgian ale. A pleasure on a spring day.

cfrancis (2358) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 4, 2013
Pours a light straw golden yellow with a small white top. Aroma is cereal malts with a sweet yeasty profile. Taste is nicely delicate with light malts, dry yeast. Such a unassuming beer that you don’t know you love it until it’s done.

GuillaumeCL (343) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 3, 2013
Pours a hazy golden yellow with lots of white head and lots of lacing. Smell is citrus, grass, and a slight sweetness I can’t quite place. Palate is on the lighter side of medium bodied with good carbonation. Taste is a soft bitterness that rises and falls along with a bit of spice. Aftertaste has a pretty sharp cutoff. Good table beer, and eminently drinkable.
