MXD (303) - Gatineau/St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 14, 2010
On tap, at the brewpub. Pours hazy copper, not much of a head however. Interesting nose : smoke is quite subtle, but the dominant aroma is probably... peaches, as opposed to smoked ham. Totally unexpected. Still fruity in the mouth, but not that much. The smoke taste kicks in a little later, just before finish, which is more malty than anything else.

asheft (2484) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 22, 2010
[on tap at brewpub] Smoked salmon aroma with faint caramel. Almost clear light amber with a white cover. Sweet, smokey green apple flavour with some lychee. Light to medium body, moderate carbonation, tangy smoke finish.

blankboy (5972) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 6, 2011
Draught at the brewpub. Pours a semi-clear orange with a small creamy white head. Aroma of smoke, toasted malt and fruit. Nice easy-to-drink flavour follows the aroma but with the smoke being more subtle. Average to medium bodied. I quite liked this.

sseb69 (1481) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 22, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2011 En fût. 5.5%. Couleur ambrée-brune, voilée. Arôme de fumée, de fruits et de caramel léger. En bouche, on goûte la fumée qui n’est pas accaparente ainsi qu’un goût fruité. Elle est quelque peu mince en bouche mais elle se boit vraiment bien et n’est pas trop pesante. Très bonne bière. Son plus gros défaut...aqueuse en bouche.

rederic (2901) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 19, 2013
On tap at the brewery, slight hazy amber hue, with a ring of white head, nice smoked salmon, bacon, chips nose, with some earthy toasted, caramel, bamberg smoky malt accents, with a faint, fruity, toffee, biscuity graininess note in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty, fruity, smoked maltiness character, reminiscent of good smokey salmon, ham, meat and chip flavours, with a mild beechwood undertone, leading towards a yeasty, fruity, lingering smoked malty finish.

Lubiere (9788) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 18, 2010
A hazed golden ale with a thin white head. In aroma, a nice herbaceous malt with nice smoked ham notes. In mouth, a nice refreshing rauchbier with light smoked malts, light honey notes, very quaffable, ideal for BBQ. On tap at brewpub, April 16 2010.

Glouglouburp (5956) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 9, 2010
In short: Moderate smoke and refreshing tropical fruits flavor. Nice session beer.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Cloudy golden orange body topped by a small off-white head
In long: Nose is fruity and quite smoky with a smoked ham type of smokiness. In mouth the beer is only moderately smoky and it has a pleasant refreshing topical fruits character. The body is medium, the carbonation is medium. Not very tasty. Overall rather smooth and easy to drink. Dumdum (the brewer) runs a lot of tests before selling a beer. He tries A LOT of his own creations. That’s professionalism for you. Not the case with everyone. Surely whoever came up with the advice "fight fire with fire" didn’t run many tests.

trapped (715) - New York City, TURKEY - JUL 11, 2011
Drought at Les Brasseurs du Temps, Gatineau on 6 July 2011. Red-amber color, off-white spongy big head, woody aroma, smoky flavor, medium carbonation, abrupt finish. Very good beer.

MartinT (7746) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 4, 2011
My Bottom Line :
Smoked salmon allusions ride mild bready sweetness in this dryish, very drinkable brew.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A veil of foam covers the pale amber-hued golden.
-This is drier than most beers from BdTemps. A nice change of pace.
-The prickly carbonation and grain bill flavors do not recall any German-made Rauchbiers. This is more akin to a Smoked Golden Ale, or something in that realm.
-A little more softness in the mouthfeel (natural carbonation and pils malts, for example) would help this beer reach greater heights (in my tastes, anyway).
-This is a nice introduction to smoked beers for those who might be reticent to drink such a brew.

On tap at the brewpub.
