Viper666 (3290) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 21, 2013
Dégustée en fût sur place. De couleur ambrée pâle et claire. Nez de houblon herbeux, fruité (agrumes, léger de fruits tropicaux) et aux faibles notes citriques, de grains de malt sucrés et léger de caramel doux. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture légèrement huileuse. Goût légèrement amer de houblon fruité (agrumes, notes de fruits tropicaux) aux faibles notes citriques et herbeuses (une amertume présente en arrière-goût toute la gorgée) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de malt légèrement sucré, un léger goût de caramel et des notes de pain puis en finale l’amertume de houblon s’accentue légèrement en affichant un caractère herbeux et très légèrement asséchant. Post-goût moyen et aux notes sèches, moyen-léger amer de houblon herbeux aux notes fruitées (zeste d’agrumes) et citriques. (15 mai 2013)

En fût chez Bedondaine. Couleur ambrée. Arômes de malt, céréales et levures. Goût de houblon floral, de céréales et très légères notes de fruits. En finale une amertume honnête.

BQ2010. Draft at Bedondaine in Chambly. Pours a amber body with small white lacing. Aroma was pretty bland. Slightly malty. Smooth mouthfeel but lacking flavor.

TonyDiUlio (679) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 7, 2010
Tasted this beer while on Beer Quest 2010 with the guys. This was beer number 59. Not a great brew. Aroma was bland. Slightly malty. Smooth to drink but not much flavor.

josarah (112) - Hinesburg, Vermont, USA - MAR 30, 2009
Draft at brewpub. Rich golden amber color, smallish white head, pleasant toffee aroma. Very enjoyable ale with just enough hops to brink to fruity flavors forward. A bit thin in body but the taste makes up for it.

MartinT (10239) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 19, 2007
My Bottom Line:
The constant earthy and orangey hop display is seamlessly integrated to the round caramel maltiness, assuring a healthy, pleasant session Pale Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam settles atop the clear russet.
-The hop signature and grain bill are surely cousins of L’Amère Veilleuse, their star ESB.
-Leafy hop resins conjure up a satisfying finishing bitterness.
-The plump mouthfeel is one of its most pleasurable features.

On tap at the brewpub.

Comments: Somehow, my glass was completely clear and I found the body less rich than what I expect at that brewpub. Huge suggestions of pear amongst others. The result was a certainly honest offering, but not one I think I’ll ever pick again amongst their usual 12 offerings.

The pour reveals a cloudy amber color with a thin offwhite head. Appealing aroma of caramel, fruity hops and peaches. Good, long lasting flavor of burnt caramel, citrusy hops and peaches with a bitter finish. The body is light to medium with a creamy texture and soft carbonation. Another well-done beer from Quebec’s master of balance.

LadySusan (766) - Ste-Therese, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 10, 2006
Cloudy orange color, with a light beige head. It has a good aroma of malt. The taste has some bitterness that leaves a good taste in your mouth and also a good after taste.
