600ml bottle. Brown with a nice biege head that fades to a spotty covering. Somewhat roasted and sweet malt, some caramel, bit of belgian sugar, lightly spiced. Light carbonation, moderate body, sweet and a large malt presence, becomes a little weak on the finish.

I love it just for being so different. Nice light malt up front, maybe a hint of caramel (not much). Middle is more like dark fruits (plums, maybe even prunes). Finish is almost minty. Light in the mouth with almost no carbonation. Very interesting beer.

600ml bottle from the brewery in Vankleek Hill, Ontario.
Bottled on November 13, 2014. Batch #3956. Muddy brown in colour with a thin white head, little lacing. The aroma is fruity, herbal, spice and bread. The flavour is light bitter, some spice, herbal, earthy. Finishes long, sweet to start turning herbal.

Bottle. Amber with not much head. Smells and tastes kinda like spruce beer. Pretty well done.

Ça pétille comme une boisson gazeuse et sitôt versée, sitôt la mousse disparaît. Le liquide est brun acajou et limpide. Un nez d’herbes grasses et de caramel. Les saveurs me semblent plus intéressantes, mais sans flammèches et c’est correct ainsi. Légèrement poivré et/ou épicé, avec un caramel qui s’apparente à du miel ambré. (Lot 4874-Emb. 1er fée.16) (1770-110316)

750 ml bottle shared by jessem. thx for the share jesse! the was an odd ball! weird spicey sweet mix both in the flavour and the aroma. not at all drinkable but not poorly brewed. the belgian yeast profile didnt go un-noticed, neither did the myrtle.

Growler shared by someone.
Appearance : Hazy amber with no head.
Aroma : Spices and fruits with some malt. Nice yeast with nice banana bread notes.
Taste : Spices with light bananas. Finish has nice notes of banana bread. Light bitterness.
Overall : Nothing to write home about but quite good. Nice banana bread notes. I thought this was a weizen.

kevinsenn (2310) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 4, 2012
Bottle from LCBO. Pours cloudy and brown. Pretty nice aroma; reminds me of a Belgian ale; full of pepper and other spices. Taste is too sweet, very herbal, and spicy... maybe a general "vegetable" taste in there too. Feels a bit thin, and carbonation a bit too high. Not a fan of this one. EDIT: getting near the end of my glass, and the beer has warmed up. Now I smell some farmyard animals in there, and taste it too. Adjusting my score to average out my initial impressions with my final impressions.
