pumpkinhead2 (907) - 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.

AlainG (2144) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 30, 2016
a ptille comme une boisson gazeuse et sitt verse, sitt la mousse disparat. Le liquide est brun acajou et limpide. Un nez dherbes grasses et de caramel. Les saveurs me semblent plus intressantes, mais sans flammches et cest correct ainsi. Lgrement poivr et/ou pic, avec un caramel qui sapparente du miel ambr. (Lot 4874-Emb. 1er fe.16) (1770-110316)

AgentAle (1658) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 18, 2017
Aroma is spicy rye, caramel, lavender, and pepper. Taste is roasted malts, caramel, honey amd fig. A light earthiness arroves on finish with, still, a little pepper spiciness. Appearance is a clear amber with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 9, 2013
Thanks to cfrancis for this. Pours a murky brown with a frothy tan head. Aroma of sweet dried fruits, spicy herbs, pine. Taste is yeast and cloves, some sourness then has some sweetness and fruity notes. Interesting beer that is easy to sip on.

probstblueribbon (3791) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 11, 2013
600 ml bottle from LCBO, served cool in a tulip glass. 06DE12.

App.: Deep reddish-brown, murky with a smallish yellow-tan head. Aroma: Quite like a Belgian Dubbel, strong yeast, dark dried fruit, light esters, malty and playful, faint minty herbals. Palate: Medium+ body, fine, creamy effervescence. Flav.: More herbal, bread, toast, yeast, less fruity, a touch roasted, faint esters, malty with more plant character; basically dry with minimal bitterness and a full ,yeasty, bready, malty finish.

Finally rated after a few bottles over the years. Enjoyable.
