I got really into this beer. Aroma is glorious hop and caramel. Taste is well balanced with good hop bitterness and caramel and malt. Amber brown in colour. I really enjoyed this beer. I’ll definitely pick it up at the dep again.

bedainedebiere (501) - Terrebonne, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 15, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2012 New red label 750 ml bottle, in store since yesterday, so totally fresh. No, not awful at all to me. High quality rendition of this style I really like, with a beautiful copper color and an enjoyable intense leafy and slightly citrusy hopping. Sweet and fruity notes. Somehow oily mouthfeel (abundance of hop result?) and a long great aftertaste. I like this a lot but it is a little expensive but, again, why pay less in life?... Good job again, you Mousquetaires! ADDED: Quite different in its new version, brewed with Québécois malts, but some displeasing acrid vegetal persisting notes are not pleasant. Down from 6-4-8-4-15, which was to high anyway...

JulienHuxley (2947) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - NOV 13, 2009
Bottle. Pretty awful APA, I really disliked the earthy, dry hoppy aroma and taste. It was silty and dirty in the mouth and really lacked the refreshing aspect this beer style usually brings.

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2012 ***update***
Out of a 750ml corked bottle - similar stuff but the taste has a Belgian yeasty flavour to it - this is excellent and stands above many other good apa’s

Draft at Brasseurs du temps back in May.
Good pour, super fresh, ample solid off white cap, slippery ropy lacing, crystal clear deep amber beer. Good floral bouquet, lots of deep citrus aroma, orange, sweet ruby red grapefruit, cherry, good blended malt (what malts, I’m not sure), aromatic and quite potent. Interesting sourness, seems to be linked strongly with the fresh unsweetened grapefruit. Lacks flavour, overall disappointing after the impressive aroma. Weak candy, dulling hops, pine. Drying, slightly tart, good soft carbonation, long dry mild bitter finish.

Diogène (1066) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 16, 2009
Draft at Brasseurs du temps. Clear copper with thin foamy head and poor retention. Aroma is citrusy hops, caramel and roasted malt. Flavor is also mostly citrusy hops, caramel, roasted malt, and a hint of pine. A well done and very drinkable APA. Nothing special though.

Boutip (4656) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 14, 2009
Draft: Poured a medium copper color ale with a small foamy head. Aroma of citrus hops with some well balanced caramel malt. Taste is also dominated by bitter and citrus hops with a nice caramel malt backbone. Good carbonation with no apparent presence of hops. Very well done with great drinkability factor.

MrManning (2003) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2008
750 ml bottle courtesy of HogtownHarry- Pours deep orange, slightly hazed with a generous white foamy cap. The nose is simple, but enjoyable. Fresh floral hops and bready malts with apple and cookie dough. The taste is decidedly fresh green hops, nice caramel and bready malts balance the floral bitterness. Finishes bitter, with a long lived lingering aftertaste of hops and bread crust. Simple, but well made and enjoyable. Thanks for this one Harry!

blankboy (5979) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2008
My bottle (750ml) shared with HogTownHarry, tupalev & garthicus -- courtesy of Viper666. Pours a clear orange-amber with a small frothy white head. Nice aroma of Goldings hops and sweet malt. Simple but easy to drink flavour of light hops, grain and sweet malt and a light bitter finish -- this would be nice on tap. Average bodied. An enjoyable version of the style -- good stuff.

Gorbalev (2911) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 14, 2008
Bottle shared with Garthicus, Hogtown Harry, and Blankboy, courtesy of Blankboy. Nice copper pour, small white head. , lots of streaming bubbles. Mild but nice aroma - tinny, a little sweet, dry fruit and some grass. Good taste - fruity dry hops, crisp fresh mouthfeel, nicely carbonated. A nice subdued APA.

HogTownHarry (6063) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 13, 2008
Bottle (750ml). Shared by blankboy with garthicus and tupalev. Very clear bright orange pour, smallish frothy-creamy beige head. Funky, vegetal leafy hops, alcohol, a bit of salty green olive. The taste carries better, grainy and lightly acidic, the funky hops come out better here (stronger yet not really vegetal like the aroma) but still an earthy tang - crisp, simple. Average body, mild bite to it, definitely an APA. Decent.
