En fût au BDT. Couleur brune-orangée aux reflets rougeâtres. Arôme de miel-caramel, un peu de fruits. En bouche, très gouteuse, douce...avec des notes de caramel, fruits mûrs et houblon. Finale un peu amère qui invite la prochaine gorgée. Très bonne.

On tap at BDT.
Appearance : Hazy amber with a medium creamy white head. Light lacing.
Aroma : Great caramel with malt and hops.
Taste : Caramel and resinous hops. Quite malty. Finish has a nice bitterness with some nice caramel. A bit resinous too. Not much alcohol.
Overall : I felt like this was a really well balanced barley wine. Not too sweet and not too hoppy. Sweetness is enjoyable as are the hops. Great stuff.

Boutip (5060) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 6, 2011
Tap: Poured a cloudy beige/orangey color ale with a large frothy head with some retention and light lacing. Aroma of citrus and bitter notes are quite dominant with a non-descript malt backbone. Taste is also dominated by loads of green hops with distinctive notes of pine and citrus/grapefruit. Malt backbone is present though not very expressive. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol since there is so much hops. Well brewed though I like my barley wine more on the English side with less hops.

Verre de dégustation, à la brasserie. Arômes de sucre d’orge et de houblon résineux et herbacé. Robe orange foncé, légèrement trouble et effervescence assez faible. En bouche, on retrouve un beau malt qui rappelle le sucre d’orge, le miel et le caramel clair. Le houblon résineux, herbacé et aux notes d’agrumes est aussi présent et crée une longue amertume. Finale légèrement alcoolisée et sucrée.
