tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 26, 2008
Lots of boiled vegetable aroma up front. Once that dissipates, citrus, floral hops are notable along with a very sweet and somewhat musky honey-like malt character. Slightly hazy, deep copper body is topped by a large bubbled, cream coloured head that recedes quite rapidly to a partial cover with some lacing. Boiled vegetable flavour is strong with plenty of underlying malt sweetness and fairly assertive bitterness. Aftertaste is herbal and citrus hops. Medium light body is somewhat astringent and puckering. Strong carbonation is very pointy on the tongue and cheeks. Tulip glass. Cellar temperature. Bottle (Le Gobelet, Jan-08).

Viper666 (3271) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 6, 2008
Bouteille 500ml. De couleur cuivrée et très légèrement voilée. Nez malté de grains de malt pâle et moyen de caramel (léger butterscotch), moyen de houblon herbeux et aux faibles notes citriques (pamplemousse) ainsi que léger de fruits (agrumes, notes de bananes) avec des notes de légumes bouillis. Mince-moyenne en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture aqueuse (petites notes huileuses). Goût de grains de malt pâle accompagné d’un léger de levures fruitées (agrumes) lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi d’un léger goût malté de caramel (faibles notes de butterscotch, quelques traces terreuses) puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère amertume asséchante de houblon assez herbeux (herbe mouillée) accompagné de notes de légumes bouillis. Post-goût moyen aux notes sèches, légèrement amer de houblon herbeux avec des notes fruitées (zest d’agrumes).

Lubiere (12940) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 3, 2007
A dark copper IPA with a thin off white head. Rather caramelized malt aroma with barely a hop in sight, a bit vinous and not unpleasant. In mouth, a light malting, with notes of butterscotch, a bit of an oily mouth feel, and some decent hops, dropping rather quickly. Rather dirty IPA, but like Dany said, a success for Multi-Brasses. Bought at Le Gobelet, Nov. 2007. 3.99$.

rodenbach99 (4251) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 25, 2007
bouteille brune de 500ml au prix de 3,99$ couleur ambrée foncée, la bouteille n’a pas bien viellie, le nez n’est pas invitant, le goût est aigre malheureusement, pas de finale, pas envie d’y replonger, la cuvette l’a terminé. ma première expérience avec cette brasserie, j’espère la prochaine fois sera meilleure.

Bottle (500ml) shared with HogTownHarry, biegaman & Viggo -- courtesy of HogTownHarry. Pours a clear copper-orange with an average size diminishing off-white head. Aroma of oily hops and caramel malt is a little vegetal and has something odd in there that I can’t place -- it smells O.K. though. Watery flavour of light hops, grain and caramel malt starts decent enough but I really don’t care for the finish, it’s quite unpleasant. Light to average bodied. Not bad for this brewery but still not very good.

HogTownHarry (6376) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2007
Bottle (500ml). Shared with blankboy, biegaman & viggo, my bottle via trade with Viper666. Hazy copper, smallish fizzy-creamy off-white head. Grainy, slightly herbal light citrus hop aroma - not bad. Taste is a little harsher, stale grain and very little hop character, dead bitterness in finish. Average, lightly carbonated body, quick finish and a stale aftertaste --- half-decent.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 23, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2012 Clear copper body topped by a short-lived off-white head. Pleasant nose of orangey and pine-tree hops. oily caramel, banana and citrus flavours join forces to create an oily hops essence mixture. Hops are not as powerful as the aroma suggested, and that’s too bad. Nonetheless the balance is slightly towards the hops. Mild juicy bitterness. Minimal carbonation, the beer could have used a little help in that department. Decent unmemorable IPA. For the usually despicable Multi-Brasses this is a crowned achievement. Had it been put out by some other quebec micro the ratings would have been more generous. I feel weird. Me, of all people, defending Multi-Brasses from bad ratings. Like a conservative religious cop protecting an abortion doctor from an angry lynch mob.
