punkska101 (1948) - Chambly, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 4, 2015
600 ml bottle from les arpents verts A: herbacy, with some earthy notes, red fruits. app: clear reddish brown with thick and lasting white head. Good lacing. T/p: med body with light acidic finish. Moderate high carbonation. O: good. Not a fan off gruit beers. This one is in the upper range of the one I had before.

pumpkinhead2 (908) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 28, 2015
Bire brune un peu ple, cuivre la lumire, moyennement voile, trs effervescente, et surmonte dun col beige, pas tellement large, mais tout de mme bien mousseux et persistant. Arme de fruit acidul, je ne suis pas trop connaisseur de myrte(?), mais on est dans le domaine des baies, petits fruits, framboise, canneberge, griotte On note galement quelques effluves malts, pain frais, foin, lger sucr (rglisse rouge et/ou sucre dorge), avec une levure pteuse (pte pain), et quelques pices (clou de girofle, poivre avec peut-tre des trucs plus herbacs, comme de la coriandre). Par moment, larme acidul fait davantage agrume, citron. Nez intressant, belle complexit, intensit un peu faible cependant. En bouche, ptillement lev sur la langue, breuvage bien mousseux, mais plutt mince au palais. Au got, pain frais, foin, rglisse rouge, avec acidit fruit dominante (framboise, canneberge, griotte et certaines notes citronnes), quelques pices (poivre et clou de girofle), et quelque chose de rsolument herbac en trame de fond (coriandre et/ou houblon). Peu sucre, acidit dominante, lgre amertume en fin de bouche. Les diffrentes saveurs ne me semblent que moyennement bien intgres les unes aux autres, intensit moyenne en bouche, bonne complexit. Il sagit dune bonne bire, bien intressante, mais je ne suis pas tellement amateur de ces bires au profil principalement fruit acidul.

mathieuc (3866) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 22, 2015
Pours a clear dark copper with a thin offwhite head on top that leaves some lacing. Nose is of spices and herbs with a light reminescence of a pumpkin beer but with no nutmeg. Light smoke aspect to it, too. Taste is lightly sweet but all the spices and the light acidic edge make it all palatable. Flavors are once again of spices and herbs, mission accomplished. Body is light and carbonation high, mouthfeel lightly watery. Bog water indeed. Overall a fair gruit but just like pumpkin beers its a "once a year" kind of affair with me.

Stoned99 (1469) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 20, 2015
600 ml bottle from Au Coin Duluth. Aroma: herbal, cooked vegetables, caramel, apples, cinnamon and other spices. App: clear amber, thin texture, with beige head. Taste and palate: medium body, a tad watery, light sweetness, fizzy, unpleasant weird light acidity and light bitter finish. Overall: wonder what the brewer wanted to achieve here, nose is OK but the palate is quite something...not on the positive side.

Franckg (1540) - Trois-Rivires, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 12, 2015
Beaucoup darmes. Malt, herbes, pommes, caramel. Par contre ca se corse en bouche. Manque de saveurs. On gote une lgre touche de malt caramlis et un petit got dherbes cre. Les houblons sortent timidement en finale mais le tout disparait du palais trs rapidement. Cest frais et lger et ca reste un produit apprciable pour le style mais tout de mme dcevant en gnral.

Minderbinder (3459) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 29, 2015
Bottle 600ml. Pours hazy brown with low-medium beige head. Aroma is of herbs, fruits. Taste is of sugar, caramel, rye, alcohol, some bitterness. Palate: Medium-full bodied. Soft-medium carbonation. Overall: Similar to Carcajou from le Corsaire. Not my kind fo brew.

CacheManyHose (670) - HONG KONG - DEC 30, 2014
From County General in Toronto. Very cloudy, almost opaque amber-orange with fizzy foamy off-white head. Smells of lime, tangerine, musty sweet malt, bit of cinnamon. Quite musty in a way that comes off as un-fresh. Taste is acidic, medium sweetness, light bitterness, tart lemony finish. Body is acidic, fizzy but in a slightly flat way, sweet. Like a Saison, or hoppy spiced orange juice.

HKdIPA (762) - HONG KONG - DEC 30, 2014
Bottle at County General in Toronto. Hazy deep amber pour with bubbly foam head. Aroma is slightly grassy hoppy, farmy, like a hoppy saison meets an amber ale. Taste is similar. A bit more food/savory taste probably some spice additions. Tastes "wintery" but not overly so - orange, clove, pepper. Not bad but wouldn't get again.

SoberDave (182) - Escondido, California, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Spicy yeast aroma, brown cloudy bog appearance, sour lime and lemon notes with hints of hops and spice. Tart on the tongue with a small bite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
