Boutip (4868) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 22, 2007
Bottle: Poured a deep peach color ale with a rather large foamy head with good retention. Aroma of light peach, sweet malt and subtle alcohol. Taste is dominated by some sweet malt, with some light peach or apricot with some warmimg alcohol. Body is full with some light filtration but alcohol is way too apparent for the style. This beer is quite good until all this alcohol appears which is a bit of a shame.

french tickler (649) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 14, 2007
Lightly cloudy golden poor with a foamy white head. Aromas of pinnaples, peppery, peaches, apricot. You can definitely feel and taste the alcohol. Good bitterness and sweet presence. Very lively effervescence. Lacing is apparent. Added green bananas to the flavors. creamy mouthfeel with a long bitter aftertaste. Good overall. NOTE: to drink around 8-10 degrees celcius.
