3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2006 Bottle (750ml). Shared with blankboy, GregClow, jerc, mds and tupalev, blankboy’s bottle. Slightly hazy amber with a huge fluffy white head. Dry aroma, sharply spicy/yeasty, some generic sweetish grain - interesting, not as subtle as I’d expect from a BdG, but perhaps that’s the "sur lees." Taste is sweet, only slightly spicy, mildly fruity - I know this is supposed to be subtle and elegant, but all I wrote was "ehh". Average everything - body, carbonation, maybe a bit of floral character, it finishes incredibly quickly - just didn’t do too much for me - give me more yeast, or spice, or something - this isn’t too far off a generic Québec golden ale.

The pour reveals a clear golden color with a thick frothy white head. Aroma and flavor of spicy malt with a sweet finish. The palate is light and the carbonation is lively. It isn’t bad but I feel this beer doesn’t have much too offer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 750 ml. brown bottle with no bottled/freshness date, but has 11-12 on the cork, with a blurb and serving instructions on the back label, sampled at cellar temperature in a chalice. I would like to know the vintage of this.
Made a good appearance, poured a hazy golden orange with foamy white head that settled into a thin lacing, good carbonation.
Had a nose of clove spiciness and orangy tropical fruits, touches of a wheat maltiness with faint whiffs of alcohol.
A really nice light bodied mouthfeel, the right amount of carbonation, lightly crisp and smooth, very good drinkability.
Clove spicy and orangy tropical fruity taste, a light nuttiness, dry yeastiness, the alcohol provides a nice warmth in the palate, but otherwise is well masked, a little herbalness and a dry fruity and yeasty finish.
This is a tasty and balanced brew, another great ale from Brasserie De Saint-Sylvestre.

Version 2006. Couleur ambrée claire, très beau collet. Arome de levure légé, un peu fruité. Goût de levure pas trop prononcé, un peu d’houblon acid. Pas mal.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Huge frothy head on a hazy golden body. Aroma was yeasty with some green apple and citrus. Very bubbly body, fresh and yeasty with some citric hops for a pleasant balance. Slightly sweet finish. Very drinkable and easy to enjoy. Not sure why it’s a winter beer?
