COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A beer with a complex taste brewed from three types of malt and fine hops following an in-house recipe. Bottle refermentation imparts a yeast-enriched flavor.

mathieuc (2285) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 23, 2015
Pours a medium-dark brown with a offwhite rim that leaves some lacing. Taste is of brown sugar, caramelized raisins, oxidation. Moderately bitter, some alcohol. Body is medium, carbonation moderate and mouthfeel a bit thin for a dubbel but still OK. Overall an OK brew but not much more.

HippyHop (477) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 13, 2015
Pour is light brown with a small off-white cap. Nose is caramel, brown sugar, molasses, caramel. Taste is sweet, fruity, somewhat watery, with some caramelized sugar bitterness. Decent and boring.

Beardbeerman (272) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 28, 2014
750ml cork bottle served at about 8 degrees in a snifter glass: This ale pours an opaque burnt caramel body topped by about a finger of vivid tanned head. It holds low retention capabilities and lacing is barely noticeable. You can however spot a moderate carbonation on the surface of the brew. The nose is complex with spice like coriander and cloves at the forefront. An intriguing pineapple backbone enhances the sweet side of the aromas and boosts up the nose nicely. On the tongue, the attack is moderately sweet and spicy and gradually shifts to the fruits (again pineapple). It drops from a medium density to very dry quickly and leaves but a faint aftertaste of hops. This belgian brown is an interesting product and it respects traits of the style it wishes to represent. The fruity aspect is original and its medium density makes it easier to deal with. This brew was made to be paired with seared or grilled cuts of beef which makes it the perfect companion for the BBQ season. Cheers!

Whatup14 (1134) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 27, 2014
Bouteille 750ml. Couleur acajou voilée, mousse beige foncée fuyante. Arôme de malt grillé, grains, mélasse. Arôme de malt grillé, caramel, soupçon d’alcool, café, âcreté en fin de bouche. Carbonatation moyenne-faible, corps moyen.

pumpkinhead2 (591) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 1, 2014
Bière brune aux reflets rouge-orangées, moyennement voilée, effervescence moyenne-bonne, et surmontée d’un col brunâtre pas tellement large, mais dense, mousseux et persistant. Arômes de levure typiquement belge, pain un peu grillé, léger caramel (voire cola) et épices (clou de girofle, poivre…). On note également des effluves fruités (banane bien mûre, raisin, prune…) et un petit quelque chose de malt fumé. Nez intéressant (peut-être un peu trop «levure»), bonne complexité, intensité moyenne. En bouche, pétillement assez élevé sur la langue, breuvage plutôt mince au palais cependant. Au goût, levure belge, épices (clou de girofle, poivre, muscade, piment de la Jamaïque…), pain légèrement grillé, présence d’un certain sucré difficile à décrire (caramel, cassonade, cola, sucre brut…?). On décèle un subtil fruité (banane bien mûre et raisin), petite acidité provenant de la levure, légère saveur herbacée provenant peut-être du houblon, amertume minimale en fin de bouche. Bonne complexité, bonne intégration des différentes saveurs entre elles, intensité modérée en bouche. Il s’agit d’une bonne bière sans plus, il faut vraiment aimer le goût de la levure belge pour pleinement l’apprécier.

Bouteille de 750ml. Couleur brune légère mousse. Goût, caramel, pain, houblon. Arrière gout faible, palais faible. Ordinaire.

Quevillon (2674) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 12, 2014
750 ml bottle bought at at Les Marchants de la Bière in Sainte-Thérèse (Quebec) on July 9, 2014. Murky dark brown, small head. Spicy red fruit aroma, light molasses notes. Toast with jam taste, some spiciness but mostly dry mineral notes, somewhat dry aftertaste. Like MartinT noted back in 2002, it’s not a disaster!

BiereLuc (1156) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 16, 2014
Bière brune, relativement mousseuse, aux reflets cuivrés. Quelque chose entre une double belge et une scotch ale... mais réellement ni l’une ni l’autre. Bonne sans plus; la Canon devrait remplacer cette bouteille en 750ml (my two cents).

Tessic (954) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 18, 2014
This ale poured a deep dark amber colour with a small but fizzy brown head. Slightly cloudy. Scents include light caramel and malt. Not overly fragrant. First swig was smooth and a little watery with flavours of malt and brown sugar. A little spice. Finish is medium sweet with malt flavour lingering forever.

fhoublon (316) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - APR 30, 2014
Bouteille de 341 ml achetée dans un IGA local. Dégustée le 7 avril 2012 (tulip). Bière brune voilée, apparence peu agréable. Mousse à peine, col quasi-inexistant. Très peu effervescente, bulles fines. Odeur d’alcool, de chêne (bois), de bourgogne. Assez forte, assez sucrée, peu amère. Goût boisé, un peu chocolatée, épicée en finale (gingembre, clou de girofle). Alcool est présent mais ne ressort pas trop. Un peu flatte, manque de caractère. Est très loin des meilleures belges.
