tiggmtl (4545) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 2, 2007
Slightly soured note underscores malt sweetness in the vinous and fruity aroma. Hazy, dark, ruby-brown body is topped by a finger of fine bubbled, fizzy, tan head that diminishes slowly to cover with scant lacing. Plums, raisins and dates in the jammy flavour with some fusels and notes of alcohol. Very dry medium full body with moderate carbonation. Tulip glass. Cellar temperature. Bottle (BB Oct-08, Bièropholie, Aug-06) sampled with Oakes.

Oakes (13426) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 30, 2007
Bright mahogany colour. Interesting winey, fruity aroma with accents of wood and raisins. Fairly full body, though quite fizzy. Simplistic plummy malts, hints of toffee and maybe some brighter fruits.

CapFlu (4762) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 14, 2007
(33cl bottle) Retired? Hmm... I believe this beer came from the Bieropholie Private Imports for the Summer of 2006. Pours a lasting, frothy almond-coloured head with a deep brown, sediment filled body. Nose is very white wine, tinny, prunes, lemon zest and coriander. The flavour is quite unique and delicious - chewy, fig, bourbon, tart wine and a cherry malt. Very good stuff. Glad I had the oppotunity to try this.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 23, 2006
UPDATED: APR 11, 2007 Dark ruby body with an initially large off-white head that turns into a thin layer. Aroma of spices, black forest cake and pie crust. Very fruity beer with some black cherries and lots of grapes. Weird spicy mix that does do it to me. A bit sour. Some cherry pie toped with some chocolate. Despite the abundance of fruity dessert flavours the body felt really empty. A funky beer but not too often. It’s retired now. What else are you gonna do but retire when you’re always labelled old (vielle/oud).

rederic (3207) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 27, 2006
Hazy brown hue, with a tan-colored head, with a yeasty nose, hint of candied orange peels fruitiness, touch of nutmeg spiciness, with a sweet chocolate toasted malt aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty fruity character, with some spicy coriander and curaçao notes, toasted malt, hint of fig, raisin fruitiness, leading towards a malty, fruity, faint alcoholic finish.
