Metalchopz (2210) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 5, 2011
Originally rated March 2006. Bought in September 2005 on my trip to Quebec City, with S8n. Pours a yellow-amber with a bit of pink colour with many sediments of different tiny size floating around. Creamy-foam white head that is a good size, has decent retention and leaves thick patches of lacing. The nose is bitter with canberries and good notes of maple syrup, after breathing some time. Watery mouthfeel with some light tart and lightly carbonated. Mmm... great taste ! Starts off with the fruit, sour, mildly bitter and dry cranberry. Then finishes with a smooth maple aftertaste. Excellent blend of two great sources, and a nice success for Multi-Brasses, for a refreshing spring brew.

Bière rosée voilée surmontée d’un pas de mousse. Arôme prononcée d’érable et de levure. Petits fruits surettes. Saveurs d’érable, de blé, de levure et de petits fruits légèrement acides.

cquiroga (371) - Tujunga, California, USA - APR 11, 2006
4/10/06. Poured out of 500 mL bottle, purchased 7/10/05 somewhere in Montreal. Rated blind. Pours a luminescent gold-peach color with a quickly fading coarsely sandy offwhite head. Unimpressive, broken and skimpy lacing. Aroma is honeyed, sort of maple syrupy (but not sugary), unsweetened cinnamon applesauce and peach skins, lightly tart with a gentle tease of funky yeast. Combination of components is disharmonious, even if the descriptors may sound enticing. Reminds me of apple baby food. Flavor is a step back, even. The first half-second is decent, hinting on a bright bite of tart apples almost reminiscent of the Montreal ice ciders, but it devolves quickly into a grainy, bland, corn sugary puddle of colored water. There’s still a little tart crabapple residue and *I guess* a dryness (more like "sandiness" from the coarse carbonation scrubbing away at your tongue) that reminds you that you did, in fact, just drink a beer. Not impressive at all. Contains slight vegetal notes amidst the fruit and sweetness, like stewed kale and rotten apples. Carbonation is so unrefined it almost feels chunky or gritty with giant bubbles. Slightly sticky on the lips with a finish that mostly just dies, but not before leaving a thin brown sugar-syrup residue. It’s actually sort of a blessing in disguise that this fades so fast, making it easier to drink in quantity. Maybe I got a bad bottle. I sure hope so.

fhoublon (314) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2014
Bouteille de 500 ml achetée au Marché du Boisé à Trois-Rivières. Dégustée le 17 avril 2005 (FDM glass). Bière rouge-orange limpide. Mousse peu lorsque versée, col mince et éphémère. Peu effervescente, bulles moyennes. Odeur d’érable et de canneberges marquée. Douce, très sucrée (érable), aigre en finale (canneberges). Goût d’érable marqué, canneberges ressortent en finale seulement. Bon mariage entre érable et canneberges, probablement la meilleure bière de cette micro-brasserie.
