COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like most big Belgian holiday beers, Noel is bursting with subtly complex flavors and fits no particular beer style. Its explosion of sensations comes from just Belgian Pilsner malt, cane sugar, Motueka hops, Trappist yeast, water, and fermentation. Drink warm or cold in various glassware shapes and sizes to discover all its nuances. Entendez should age extremely well for years to come. Availability: Bottles and Draft

reebtogi (4386) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 20, 2014
330ml bottle pours a golden amber color with a finger of white head that settles to leave only a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is fruity with some grains and hints of yeast. Taste is malty sweet with a herbal hop bitterness and a dry yeasty finish. A nicely done quad, balanced and tasty and recommended.

Bottle. Brown golden colour with a nice finger of white head. Aroma is fruity esters, butterscotch, and earthy hops. Taste is sweet syrupy sugar, followed by some bitterness mixed in with spices, finish is bitter, full bodied, with medium carbonation. Interesting take on the style, quite nice, perhaps a bit harsh at first but gets smoother as it warms.

ljthiessen (512) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 2, 2014
Bottle. Golden pour with a white head. Some stone fruit in the nose, apricots, dates, honey. Flavour is sweet and fruity with low bitterness, a little boozy with a dry finish. Labelled as a pale quad, and it’s an interesting take on the style.

Ferris (4993) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 11, 2014
Bottle - Sweet stone fruit and orange peel. Clear gold with a decent white head. Sweet yeasty fruit notes and a long yeasty finish. Nice and typically Belgian.

mcberko (7085) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 21, 2014
650mL bottle, pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out Belgian yeast, spicy notes, apples, and floral notes. Flavour is very fruity, with lighter stone fruits, floral notes, Belgian yeast, and apples. Lightly sweet, well-balanced and certainly on the edge of a tripel and a light quad. Very solid stuff.

superspak (2836) - Michigan, USA - NOV 23, 2013
22 ounce bottle into chalice, no bottle dating. Pours lightly cloudy golden amber color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a lacing cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings down the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of big peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, clove, pepper, candi sugar, honey, bread, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good complexity and balance of fruity yeast ester and malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big peach, pear, apricot, pineapple, clove, pepper, candi sugar, honey, bread, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, clove, pepper, honey, candi sugar, bread, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and malt flavors; with a great malt/fruity ester balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a moderately slick and fairly smooth mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice tripel style. All around nice complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast and malt flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

CampesinoTino (782) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bomber. Golden amber colored in appearance with a half-inch of foam. Mostly Belgian yeast, honey, pear and malt in the aroma. The flavor is candi sugars, pear and apple cider upfront followed by notes of clove, yeast and toasted grains. Medium body with moderate carbonation and a dry, spiced alcohol-warming finish. Decent Belgian style holiday ale.
