BiereLuc (887) - Montréal, Quebec, - FEB 23, 2013
(Version avec chêne servie en cask) - Bière cuivrée et trouble avec un mince collet. Nez de houblon et de sucre cuit. Au goût (wow), la faible effervescence et la température chambrée de la bière laissent toute la place au goût. Le houblon s’exprime et le sucre résiduel... réside! J’ai vraiment hâte d’essayer la version en bouteille.

Eructoblaster (3013) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 15, 2014
On tap at Mondial de la Bière (Montréal, QC). Beautoful cloudy golden body with an average off-white creamy head. Rich, fresh malty/hoppy aroma with caramel, fruity, and flowery hints. Its robust taste carries citrusy, honeyish, and some alcohol notes. Ends with a warming bittersweet finish. Interesting.

dandeman (505) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 25, 2013
On tap at Festibière de Gatineau. Aroma is floral. Color is pale amber, hazy, with small head and nice lacing. Taste: We’re in strong notes of alcohol with floral hops and fresh herbs. Very hoppy for a barley wine. Also found bubble gum and barley sugar. Hops are surprisingly sticking out the sugar base. A very tasty beer.

Lubiere (9999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 11, 2013
A hazed orange amber barley wine with almost no head. In aroma, a nice orange pulp with caramel, lemon, treacle and alcohol warmth, barrel wood notes. In mouth, a sweet caramel malt with doughy character, green hops, menthol, alcohol warmth, raspy mouthfeel, OK. On tap at Hivernale, Feb. 23 2013.

Boutip (4726) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 5, 2013
Tap (Hivernale): Poured a bright amber color ale with a small foamy head. Aroma of resinous hops is quite powerful with some citrus undertones also noticeable. Taste is a mix between some resinous notes with tropical fruit notes and peach notes with a sweet caramelized sugar finale. Body is about average with low carbonation. Very enjoyable though I can’t say I was able to pick out the bourbon easily since there was so much hops in this beer.

GarnotingPete (777) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 26, 2013
Hivernale des brasseurs 2013 - Bière trouble où flotte un col mousseux et éphémère. Des arômes chaleureux de caramel, de résine et d’ananas. Bien amère avec passablement de sucres. Elle est ronde, liquoreuse et à l’effervescence douce. Elle se termine sur de délicieux arômes.

Marheb (2047) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 23, 2013
(Hivernale des brasseurs Montréal 2013): Pas aussi américain que je l’aurais voulu mais néanmoins un surprenant barley wine très aromatique. Bonne amertume, bonne structure maltée, risque d’être un succès en bouteille.

Des saveurs de raisin, mais aussi de houblons assaillent la bouche et le nez. Effervescence assez basse. Très savoureuse, voire puissante en bouche jusqu’à la gorge, et elle est délicieuse, affichant une belle rondeur. Encore une réussite pour les mousquetaires.

MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 23, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Citrusy hop resins coat this Barley Wine’s slick caramel sweetness before establishing lengthy bitterness .

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A thin ring of foam circles the cloudy amber.
-The finish was quite fruity as well, citrusy and almost cidery.
-The aroma is all hops; a concept otherwise known as ’North American cask syndrome’.
-The herbal nature of the hop signature is sometimes reminiscent of rosemary. Unless that was me developing a hankering for a piece of red meat. ;)
-The amorphic nature of the mouthfeel (very low carbonation) didn’t really help this otherwise aromatic and flavorful American-style Barley Wine. The bottle version will undoubtedly be more refined.

On cask at Hivernale des Brasseurs.
