Purchase at La Trappe À Fromage in Gatineau, in the single bottles section. Wow ! Huge sweet tart smell from the get-go. Pours a golden-amber colour with a big creamy white head, beautiful consistent carbonation and great lacing after slowly going down. As the sweet aromas disappear, some pine needle scent appears from the hop. I still cannot believe the Halloween candy nose that this one gives when the glass is swirled. Oh well. It seems I can taste the candy in the back, but overall, pretty light bitterness from the hop, with notes of pepper and ginger. I would have to say that this one is the weirdest IPA I have ever tasted. Still, not too bad (just different). Diogène (1214) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 19, 2011
Bottle. Slightly hazy peach color with a thin white head with good retention and beautiful lacing. Aroma is medicinal herbs, banana bread, sweet crystal malt and nuts. Flavor is sweet malt, sugar, caramel, banana bread, spices, floral andherbal hops and a bitter finish. Medium body with. Very herbal, biscuity and fruity, quite different from your everyday English pale ale. Bendrixian (1514) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 13, 2011
341 ml bottle. pours almost golden brown, with little head and a sight lace. it’s perfumed, caramel, almonds and a hint of sweet alcohol. tastes are somewhat similar in terms of florality, some hops but not much else. Finishes hot and boozy. I find it is missing in body and overall character. it is missing much of a mid-palate. it is an interesting brew but not exiting.

Draft at Churchkey. Bright golden color. Aroma of heather and grass. Taste is bitter, dry, with some spice. Not bad. Sask89 (530) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - JAN 1, 2011
Pours a deep golden colour, mostly clear with a non-existent head. Aroma is largely of hops with a lot of floral notes, there is also some noticeable spice scents present too. Taste is quite sweet throughout but not overpowering, there is very little bitterness to speak of. Carbonation is flat, on the palate it is thin and smooth with an abrupt finish and light-medium body. Overall it is a unique and good beer.

Le liquide est doré. La mousse est fugace. Au nez, le gingembre et les épices partagent leur profil aromatisant avec des herbes et des fleurs de houblons. Le goût est récompensé par un malt caramel qui effleure les saveurs végétales et épicées qui, somme toute, sont particulières. En bouche, le liquide a un corps moyen-faible avec une effervescence au neutre et une texture crémeuse. La finale se fait sur des notes épicées et doucement amères. godofsky (274) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 15, 2010
341ml bottle from Le Gobelet. drank out of À l’abri de la tempête jar glass. pours a hazy golden colour with a small white head that quickly fades. aroma is dominated by floral notes and spices. taste is sweet and floral, but balanced nicely in the end with hops. i’m getting lots of cloves in the flavour. medium bodied, this beer is slightly under carbonated for my liking. not a bad beer at all, refreshing and smooth.

Drank on tap (12 oz) at Vices et Versa (Montreal) on November 7, 2010. Pale red, thin head. Malty aroma of spice, licorice and cinnamon, like a homemade donut. Dry malty spice flavor, notes of licorice and herbs, not very bitter aftertaste, Interestingly enough, the aroma and taste are really oppose to one an other.

Tap at Vices et Versa, a nice session Brit pale. Pale clear color, aroma is light spicy and fresh. Taste gingery herbalness and spice, some light sweetness. Long noble hop bitterness, very light feel. sseb69 (1980) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 2, 2010
Bouteille 341 ml. 6.2%. Couleur jaune orangée un peu voilée. Peu de mousse. Arôme d’épice, muscade et agrumes. En bouche, douce, épicé, et même une finale un peu poivrée qui rend l’arrière goût d’amertume un peu piquante. Bonne
