Metalchopz (4358) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 18, 2017
Pours a clean deep-amber colour with a fizzy yellow-beige head which disappears quick enough, leaving some creamy-foamy bottom lace. Aromas of plums, raisins with some coffee notes and some hay. Actually, quite sweet overall with some caramel and butterscotch. Thankfully the taste is not as sweet. Still some mild caramel and dark fruits. Light alcohol and watery finish. Not the best, not very well-blended. Not one I would have again. Bendrixian (1515) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 29, 2016
A bottle from my aunt who hails from the city. a first i thouight it was a double style with the estery and sweet aroma with a touch of candy cane but the palate is a tad more bitter and has a metallic bite to it. Ineresting brew but gonna enjoy this one for nostaligia. Ysok02 (2734) - Mons, BELGIUM - OCT 13, 2016
Une bière puissant, riche et massive qui remplit la bouche mais manque un peu de subtilité, néanmoins elle reste agréable à boire. Tricker (426) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2016
Bière cuivrée de 9 % d’alcool. Elle possède un odorat sucré, comme de mélasse. Son goût est bon, doux, légèrement fade en finale en bouche. Elle possède un léger goût de torréfaction, de chocolat noir et une légère amertume. Il y a également un bon céréalier, de type sarrasin. Correcte ! cfrancis (4065) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 1, 2015
Pours reddish brown with a small white ring. Aroma is sweet toffee and caramel with raisin and fig. Taste is sickly sweet, caramel and toffee with fig, raisin and a little medicinal. Too sweet for me.

500ml bottle poured into a tulip glass at 12 degrees:
This is a Belgian Red Ale brewed at Granby standing at 9% ABV. Poured a clear, ruby red robe, topped a finely structured hazel head showing minimal retention yet good lacing (for the short time it stays around). The nose is malty, grainy and gives away strong notes of alcohol and hops. The aroma will develop as the brew oxidizes. On the tongue you’ll get some roasted malts and cherries (after oxidation) and hops will somewhat clear away letting the nice fruity scents loose. I first found it too hoppy for the style it should represent, but this ale evolves very nicely after opened. So don’t get the cabbage aftertaste fool you and let it sit for a while and you’ll be able to enjoy it as it should be. Spab (5315) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 25, 2014
500 ml bottle from Drummondville Metro. Pours a cloudy dull amber colour with virtually no head. Aroma is pretty boozy with candied fruit, tartness, earthiness and a bit of Belgian yeast. Flavour is crabapple, candy sugar, some earthy character and a little Belgian yeastiness. Pretty flat and lifeless. Underwhelming. AgentAle (2208) - Fort Mcmurray, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 16, 2014
Aroma is apple, pear, candy sugar and light malts. Taste is sweet fruits and slight sourness. Nothing too complex and hardly detectable bitterness with the sour tastes. Appearance is a murky orange/amber with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well. Idiosynkrasie (9892) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 27, 2014
500ml bottle. Clear, reddish-brown colour with average, thick, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, beige head. Slightly sweet-ish, malty aroma, cautious yeasty and fruity overtones with hints of red and dark berries. Taste is dark malty, minimally roasty, minimally yeasty, fruity, hints of red and dark berries, a dry touch of fruit parings, grapes, minimally vinous and alcoholic. Not much in it for 9.0% abv.
