Quevillon (3024) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2011
Drank on tap (20 oz) at the brewpub on October 16, 2011. Very dark brown, small head. Raw and fragrant cereal flavor, well-malted. Taste of fresh wheat and other kinds of cereal, aftertaste of herbs and red fruit. I do not know why its called Oktoberfest, this is not but its good!

MartinT (9729) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 30, 2010
My Bottom Line:
This nutty and earthy Dunkel Weizen surprises with its malty countenance and its nearly absent yeast profile, until a rising leafy hop bitterness reminds you this is Bedondaine we are talking about. Who cares about style guidelines, right?

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam draws some sticky lacing on top of the dark brown gown.
-Malt flavors produce chocolatey and bready connotations.
-The very soft carbonation and levelled dextrins make for a comfortable mouthfeel.
-I love it when a brewer does his own interpretation of a style, and makes as enjoyable, if not more enjoyable, than a typical version. That is true vision.

On tap at the brewpub.

Hazy dark brown hue, with a small beige head, yeasty, mild toasted, roasted malt, faint nutty nose, with some chocolatey, coffee, burnt caramel, cookie dough accents, and a hint of burnt dark dried fruit note in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty, wheaty, toasty, biscuity, chocolate, light roasty malt character, with some nice chocolatey brownie, cake, caramel, toffeeish, light mocha flavors, with a faint coffee bean roastiness and burnt sultana raisin, dried fig accent, leading towards a mild chocolatey, mochaish, lingering roasty, hop bitterness finish.
