4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle. 8/6/17 code date. Appearance: deep golden and hazy with a frothy white head.
Aroma: Orange, clove, pear esters dominate. Ethanol also apparent.
Taste: Rich, sweet citrus orange and clove up front, giving way to pear on the backside.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a very high carbonation and hint if alcohol warmth.
Finish: Dry with strong pear flavors linger with brisk bitterness.
Overall: A fuller bodied, more citrus forward version of a BGS. This one is fuller bodied and definitely a supper. Very good.

Another high quality brew by the folks in Chambly. Fruity, yeasty with a solid malt backbone. Not fancy but very well balanced.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from my Unibroue Sommelier 6 pack of their mixed beers. A nice golden orange body, with a fairly thin white head. You can immediately smell the Belgian yeasts when you open the bottle. It is accompanied by honeyed fruits, like bananas and coriander and a touch of bready malts.
Tastes are certainly in the Ale on Lees side of things. Orange tinged spiciness lays underneath it all.
Would definitely gladly buy and drink this one again.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle shared with wife and bought from Pasquier. Aroma: lemon, abricot, wheat, spices. App: cloudy pale, medium head no retention. Taste and palate: medium body, oily, average carbonation, light acidity and warming alcohol finish. Overall: this is like the hundred times I drink this beer and I still think it?s still a really good beer. Really enjoy the finish. Drink really cold, not that good when it gets warmer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Aroma is peachy and boozy. The taste is similar, very fruity and plenty of alcohol in it. I like the flavor overall, but it’s actually kinda sweet. Maybe a bit too much. Overall, I recommend it! 9% alcohol.

12 ounce bottle. Opaque brown amber with yeast particles. Light head. Nutty nose. Sweet taste that hides the alcohol well. Canada has a winner!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
La definirei la mamma della Blonde de Chambly già provata, visto che è sicuramente superiore. Un’ottima strong ale da 9% dal colore arancio, frizzantina e dal sapore di malto e agrumi, direi soprattutto arance. In generale dolce ma non marcatamente, davvero molto godibile.

10-month old bottle from the LCBO. Cloudy apricot colour with white soapy head. Nose is Belgian yeast, banana, pears, some spices. Taste fresh and yeasty with fruit esters, some bitterness and tart notes. Drinks like a tripel. Pretty good.
