Johnsense (1496) - - AUG 25, 2014
Brownish pour, decent sized head. Muted aroma, carael, herbs, (myrtle?). Roasted malt, caramel, herbs and spice, lemon, actually quite different, if not complex. Medium body. Definitely unique.

Franckg (1440) - 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.

Stoned99 (1427) - 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.

UPDATED: APR 24, 2013 Gave my friend a blind tasting of this one, told him it was an IPA. Fantastic brew, and its just wonderful to see such experimentation from an Ontarian brewer. This is the type of beer our ancestors drank and its a real shame that its disappeared for so long. Thanks, guys, for bringing it back; I plan on sharing it with more friends in the future. The herbs are quite the shock at first, but after a few sips it just glides right down... lovely complex taste just mulling in your mouth. The head is just beautiful. I know its based on the local ales, but if I could compare this with one style it would be the strong Belgians.

cargo150 (1289) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 16, 2014
Couleur brune ambre completement opaque avec un mince col qui se dissipe rapidement. Aromes de fruits acre, de caramel, dherbe, trs terreux. Mal balanc... Dsagrable a boire...

BiereLuc (1275) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - APR 9, 2015
Bire cuivre, rougetre, limpide, coiffe dune mousse crme fines bulles. Leffervescence surprend. Le nez offre un sacr bouquet, dabord difficile cartographier, puis, on dcle des pointes de miel, dherbes, de cassonade et de raisins. En bouche, la carbonatation drange par son excs. Lorsque le jeu se calme, on dcouvre des fruits rouges, un peu de caramel et une belle rondeur. Cest agrable.

vadie (1253) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 11, 2014
Ambre, presque orange avec un petit col beige qui reste longtemps. Larme du malt, du myrte, et un peu du caramel. Le got est dabord du malt lgrement sucr puis un got terreux. Du myrte, jimagine. Le got terreux est pas mal fort. Trs unique.

Strangebrewer (1237) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 3, 2014
bottle. Poured hazy brown with a beige diminishing head. Aroma of sweet fruity malt with an herbal note. Medium body, prickly carbonation with a tart finish. Flavour of caramel malts with a vegetal hoppiness, notes of yeast and peppery spice. Alcohol well hidden.

Pours a muddy copper brownish colour with a decent soapy tan head leaving some sticky lace up the glass. Aromas of spice, lemon, yeast and some sweetness. Flavours of clove, yeast, light zesty lemon, overall spicy.
