4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark cloudy brown with a light white head. Smells of caramel malts with a hint of cherries. Toaty caramel malts make the main taste here, so not as complex as I might like. I still feel that drowning in it wouldn’t be overly bad.

I don’t understand what other reviewers are saying about tasting complex flavours. All I can taste is sugar. Very sweet wheat bock, nothing like a German wheat bock. Well maybe like a German wheat bock if you added a couple of spoons of sugar to each glass.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap. A beastly brew for sure. Pours a murky brown color with a medium brown head. The aroma is massive; sweet brown sugars, malts and soem fruit just jump out at you- warning that this will get you smashed. The flavor is just as robust; warm bordering on hot, brown sugars, prunes, a heavy sweet malt. A strong brew for the Quebec winters for sure. Nice.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(750ml bottle) Purchased at Cook Street Liquor Store for $13.20. Pours a lofty, beige head atop a strong red-brown body. Right of the bat - sniff, sniff - this has a lot of the aroma of Trois Pistoles: plum, smooth brandy and vanilla. Great ruby plums swirl the palate, the heightened alcohol (10.3%) is less apparent than that of Trois Pistoles (9%). Some earthy undertones. A wonderful, wonderful beer. Unfortunately its twice the price of Trois Pistoles here in British Columbia ($5.99) or I’d be alternating between the two regularly.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Pours a beautiful muddy brown with plenty of beige head. Aroma of fermented malts mashed in with grass and swampwater. Flavour is heavy barley syrup mixed with bière de garde grass and a huge alcoholic finish. Really, who are they kidding - this stuff has "malt liquor" written all over it but they’ve added a few fancy French accents to make people think it’s something else, aside from major suckage. Dudes, I ain’t fooled.
