COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This brown lager offers sweet citrus flavors that arise from a selection of thirteen Quebec malts from barley, wheat, oats, and rye. It’s bouquet comes from a blend of Saaz Czech hops, coriander seed and bitter orange peel. The result is a wonderful festive beer! Cette lager brune aux saveurs d’agrumes sucrées est élaborée à partir d’une sélection de treize malts québécois provenant d’orge, de blé, d’avoine et de seigle. Son bouquet nous vient de houblons Saaz de République Tchèque, de graines de coriandre et d’écorces d’orange amère. Le mélange nous donne une bière des plus festive!

GothGargoyle (1374) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 21, 2012
Dark brown with a large tuscan head that lingers long and leaves behind a little lacing. Aroma is coriander, chestnut, cloves, earth. Medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, well balanced on the palate with a bitter citrus peel finish. Taste is orange peel, coriander, roasted malts, wood, hazelnuts.

WheatKing (1305) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 13, 2012
Very nice desert beer. Lots of webs, lustrous mouthfeel thanks to the rye and oats. The added spices blend well with the yeast... this is like a heavy dark lagered wit, I suppose... which is a fantastic cross in my books. I didn’t know there were Saaz hops in here until reading the description, I think their floral quality was overpowered by everything else.

Whatup14 (787) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 10, 2012
Bouteille 750ml. Couleur brun foncé laissant à peine passer la lumière, mousse moka disparaîssant rapidement. Arôme d’épices, de coriandre, de mélasse, de gingembre et de gomme "savon". Goût d’épices, de coriandre et de caramel léger. Carbonation faible, corps moyen.

AlainG (1323) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 30, 2012
Presque rouge, une mousse considérable la surmonte. Une timide dentelle est présente. Mais qu’est-ce que c’est que cette odeur? Le navet bouilli et le jus de tomate me viennent à l’esprit. Ça goûte sensiblement la même chose. Est-ce que j’ai faim ou quoi? Des pointes sucrées s’immiscent au travers le bouilli de légumes. Soit que je suis tombé sur une mauvaise bouteille ou alors ce n’est pas pour moi...(260-180912)

tom10101 (3012) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 11, 2012
Bottle (750 ml). Dark copper with a medium brown head and some lacing. Aroma of spices (coriander), orange and malt. Taste is about the same with fruits and nuts. Medium body.

Bendrixian (1162) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 10, 2012
Lively carbonation with a cloudy brown colour. Orange peel aroma with some nutmeg or something sweet with a floral note. Slightly roasted flavour with a fairly bitter note. An interesting brew for sure I’d have another.

Gerbeer (1945) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 4, 2012
750 ml bottle. Pours a deep brown/orange with light head. Vegetable aroma. Flavors of coriander and grains. Bitter. Based on the aroma I’m not sure this bottle is spot on.

solidfunk (4321) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUL 30, 2012
Smells a little dank, some basement aromas with coffee on the nose. Taste has some coffee bitterness, some sweetness as well. This is all very nose-heavy as the palate dies out very quickly. Good retaining head, pours dark mahogany. A little sourness that gathers in your throat as well. Bottle from Peluso’s.

Gethinbeer (2194) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 25, 2012
Amber colour, great frothy white head. Medium carbonation. Clove banana aroma. Pleasant beer with malt, clove and banana flavour. Lovely refreshing beer.

Atheist_Peace (972) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAY 23, 2012
750ml cork n’ cage. Pours a hazy dark amber/red with lots of tan/reddish head. The coriander really jumps out on first whiff. Lots of orange peel and gingerbread with a certain smokiness. A little lighter on the palate than I’d expected, but there’s lots of that rich gingerbread, coriander and orange peel flavour. The hint of smoke seems to have disappeared.
