BiereLuc (999) - Montréal, Quebec, - FEB 26, 2013
Cuivrée, orangée, trouble avec un très mince collet de mousse et une faible effervescence. Nez très floral de houblons frais. En bouche, l’équilibre «sucre résiduel / houblon» est sensationnel. C’est terriblement amer (101 IBU) et foutrement sucré... mais les deux s’annulent (se complètent) dans une harmonie totale. Alex Ganivet-Boileau est un génie. Je lui ai déjà dit à plusieurs reprises et je suis sûr qu’il va finir par me croire.

Bottle. Pours Light amber/caramel colour with a thin off white head. Aroma of caramel malts and a bit of booze. Medium to full bodied. Taste is more of the caramel with a slight bitter tropical fruit bitterness. I think this bottle is probabably past it’s prime; the hops would have given a better balance 6 months ago. Still pretty good.

kevinsenn (1216) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 20, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2015 Bottle from LCBO. Aroma of brown sugar and tropical fruit. Syrupy sweet at the beginning, with tropical fruit and brown sugar, with bitterness creeping up into a bitter aftertaste. Good, but not the best barley wine.

TheJester (2001) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 16, 2015
750 mL bottle. Hazy copper-brown with a small but solid beige head. Interesting/unique aroma for a barley wine. Just a touch of brown sugar from the malt. The hops have a weird, sweeet & sour orchard fruit kinda thing going on. Really interesting, hoppy flavour. Not your typical barley wine because of it. But way too malty and boozy to be considered an IIPA. I’m gonna go with tropical fruit as the main hop flavour. Sweetens considerably as it warms.

Bov (9969) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 31, 2015
courtesy of Toni Flükiger - light hazy amber-orange beer with no head retention; aroma of figs and cherry, pretty vinous; full-bodied and hugely sweet, thick; tons of residual sugars and more fruity notes of cherry, dates and figs - the crazy level of sweetness prevents this to be a great beer

Idiosynkrasie (4370) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JAN 19, 2015
750ml bottle. Cloudy, amber colour with average, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Sweet-ish malty aroma, a bulk of caramel, burdened with resin notes, interspersed with citrusy hoppy pinpricks. Taste is very sweet, delivers identical flavours, a good deal alcohol amplifies the heavy character; sweetish, sticky palate. The "quantité déraisonnable" is at risk to become a "quantité négligeable", barely keeping the whole thing in balance.
