tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 14, 2013
Sweet, fruity, earthy and herbal in the nose. Hazy brown body is topped by a decent, if large bubbled, off-white head that lasts fairly well. Flavour is sweet and fruity up front, almost a cross between a saison and a dubbel - very Belgian inspired to me. Moderate bitterness and herbal, earthy notes round out the flavour. Medium body is filled by a gentle, expansive effervescence. Really great texture on the tongue. Cellar temperature. Bottle purchased at the LCBO on Danforth Rd. in December 2013.

lesifflebiere (1747) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 2, 2014
Liquide dont la couleur est au croisement du rouge, de lorang et de lacajou. Couronne de mousse crme. Le nez est pic, rondement malt, avec des houblons pour terminer. En bouche elle est savoureuse, fruite, ramenant des baies et du sucre cuit au premier plan. Une excellente bire pas juste fruite mais aussi dune belle complexit, avec des saveurs rarement retrouves dans ce genre de breuvage. Trs agrable.

Pours a hazy brown thick fluffy white head, aroma has some sweat bready malt and dark fruit. Flavor has a strong malt background with some peppery notes and a slight sourness. Enjoyable beer.

HogTownHarry (6380) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 1, 2008
Bottle (750ml ceramic swing-top). Shared by GregClow with blankboy, jerc and tupalev. Deep mahogany with a solid beige creamy head. Dry medium-deep roast cereal grain with some dry floral/herbal bitterness. Taste follows, quite sweet caramel malt with some raisin and light nutshell and wildflower bitterness - on the light side, not boozy, subtle .... Average body, smooth and soft, gently bitter in the finish. A light, roasty, cold-weather treat - my hat is off to you, Beaus - well done!

C2H5OH (64) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 28, 2011
Pours a hazy amber with a small, tan head. Nose is very spicy and herbal. Dark fruit, red licorice, raspberry, yeast funk, brown sugar. Mouth feel is chewy with medium carbonation. Taste is cherry, raspberry, grass, herbal, green apple, stale gummy bears, and burnt toast. Finishes slightly bitter and dry; vinous, grassy and sour. Unique brew that gives off a holiday vibe without turning to cinnamon and ginger.

Atheist_Peace (981) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JAN 17, 2013
600ml bottle. Pours Hazy brown/orange with average tan head. Vegetal, malty, tangy nose. Rather odd but not in a bad way. Sourish on the palate with vegetal wooden notes and a lemony zing.
