Rastacouere (6128) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 21, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2004 Golden ale with a big head. Coriander, yeasts and orange in the nose. Yeasty taste, but perhaps not as much as most other Cheval Blanc. Lots of malt, curacao, banana, coriander. Hoppier than I expected, dry finish. Definitly not a real chouffe, but pretty solid nevertheless.

Boutip (4726) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 14, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2008 Golden color beer witha nice head when pourred into glass. Aroma of spice are really present and very tasteful. The alcohol is well hidden and overall this is another very refreshing beer from Cheval Blanc Re-rate 2008- Slightly hazy with good mix of spices. Well done and something like to drink from time to time.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 29, 2003
soft yeasty aroma and spices. Pours golden yellow, slightly cloudy, white foamy head, carbonation high. Looks like a pilsener. Spices and alcohol in the flavour, maybe apricots or other fruits. A dry finish.

presario (4625) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 29, 2003
Bottle. Looks and smells initially like apple cider. Lots of tiny suspended yeast particles. Light carbonization. Scent of yeast and citrus as well. Big bubbles quickly disappear. Pleasant on the tongue. More apple and yeast flavour. Slight sourness. Spices and alcohol are well balanced. Not a big taste. Hops are allmost hidden and then sneak out from under your tongue. Tastes better with each sip. Refreshing.

JoeM500 (1905) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - JUL 7, 2003
Apply and lemony nose sprinkled with light spices. Spiced baked apples, apricot pie, biscuits and rising dough flavors. Finish has some bitterness and some dry spicy candy notes.

(Bottle) Pours a thin, quick dissipating head and a cloudy, amber body. Aroma of MacIntosh apples, bananas and yeast. Taste of spicy fruit. Finishes bitter and dry. Nice.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 8, 2002
Hazy yellow. Fruity, yeasty aroma. Lovely spicy (coriander), fruity (pears, oranges), yeasty flavours giving way to a pleasently hoppy finish.
