MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, - JUL 21, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Tropical, citrusy fruitiness shines atop mild resinous hoppiness while making room for the quenching acidity of cranberries.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam tops the hazy pink red.
-The Citra character is perfectly harmonious with the cranberries and their acidity, especially in the aroma.
-Carbonation is quite bubbly and the mouthfeel is appropriately lean. The result is obviously very easy drinking despite the intensity of the flavor profile.
-Bottle-conditioned, this is going to be a super hit.
-I wish more fruit beers were like this one and their Framboyante, marrying the fruit’s character with well-chosen cultivars’.

On tap at Brouhaha.

[Draught at the brewpub. Nov. 11] Pours a deep orange-amber with an average size diminishing frothy white head and some lacing on the glass. Mild aroma of malt, fruit, light vegetal notes and a bit of alcohol. Flavour’s a bit tart and a bit bitter -- it’s an interesting one. I read after that it’s made with cranberries and it makes more sense. Medium bodied. I like it but I don’t love it, it does grow on you though.

On tap @ the brewery. Slightly hazy pinkish with a small white head and little lacing. Aroma is of red fruits (cranberries) along lemony notes and grassy notes. Taste is of cranberries, acidity from the fruits, lemony notes and herbal notes. Light body. Thin. Moderate carbonation. Decent fruit beer, but no depth or complexity. Kind of boring.

sseb69 (1562) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 5, 2014
En fût au BDT. Couleur rousse foncée, mousse beige épaisse. Arôme de fruits rouge, malt. En bouche, belle effervescence, notes de canneberges qui se marient parfaitement avec le Citra, bel équilibre, acidité rafraîchissante, finale avec fruits et légère amertume. Excellente

solidfunk (4493) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 18, 2013
Very nice. The citrus and cranberry are excellently integrated with floral hops here. A super original beer. Pours cloudy blonde with ok head and lacing. Aroma of citurs, cranberry, Belgian yeast and lots of florals that still come out. Finishes with light sweetness. Great balance. Tap at brewpub.

cargo150 (782) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 9, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2013 Bière dégusté a la microbrasserie. D’une couleur rosée assez spéciale avec un col léger blanc mais assez résistant. Au nez un fin mélange fruité et houblonnée. En bouche c’est très rafraîchissant les houblons fruitée s’empare de notre bouche, en finale l’amertume du canneberge ressort légèrement et l’amertume des houblons viens fermer le tous. Une bière rafraîchissante complexe, unique en son genre. BDT devrais mettre cette bière en bouteille, dans mon top 3 de cette microbrasserie pour le moment!

On tap at the pub. I enjoyed this beer thoroughly and completely. All of the elements--malt, cranberry sourness, Belgian yeast character, Citra hop finish (bittering was properly restrained)--were in balance. It takes imagination to craft a beer such as this, and it earns my admiration.

Brasseurs du temps prend contrôle des lignes du Brouhaha 2013. Superbe bière d’un rouge flamboyant, voilée et coiffée d’une fine écume blanche marquant le verre d’une légère dentelle. Des arômes très réussis de pamplemousse et de conifères. Bien amère avec une aigreur plaisante. Elle est lisse, très effervescente, de corps moyen et se termine sur une longue finale aromatique Et acide.
