Sammy (11845) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 24, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2010 Enjoyed at the brewpub, where the right slightly cold temperature and perfect carbonation are always in order. Funky smell. White head on yellow-grapefruit. Sour, citrus orange and cloves and corriander, which makes it sweetish.Medium mouthfeel.Not a bad one. This batch was 8.8% Ergot 2010 at Mondiale 2010. Average mouthfeel, a little sour, yeasty.

jercraigs (10258) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2008
2008-05-31. Orangey dark amber body with a tiny beige ring of head. (3+) Interesting fruit aroma, sweet citrus and fruit that I want to call lychee but I dont think thats quite right, mild hops. (7+) Flavour has a similar fruit character over top a slightly sweet malt base finishing lightly tart and bitter. smooth average to medium palate. (3+) Pretty nice actually, different. On tap, Mondial, Montreal, 4T

MartinT (9729) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 3, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2014 My Bottom Line:
Beautifully floral and spicy hoppiness suffuse the honeyed cereals of this delightful, perfumy Belgian-style Strong Ale. One of Quebecs treasures.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A thick layer of foam covers the misty gold.
-A little alcohol heat is felt in the back.
-The crystallised flower petal notes are mesmerizing.
-Carbonation is prickly, perhaps not cozy enough to properly emulate authentic examples of the style.
-Coriander seeds are well integrated.
-The finish is full of herbal, floral hop bitterness.
-Bubblegum and banana notes are whipped up by the yeast.

On tap at the brewpub many times now.

mabel (8735) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2007
[530-20070811] Tap @ Benelux (Montral, QC). Light pineapple and floral yeast aroma. Clear, orange amber body with a long-lasting creamy white head. Spicy pineapple mango fruit flavour holds wheat characteristics. Medium-full body is complex. Interesting to try but is a little too spicy-fruity to take it that notch higher.

blankboy (7597) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 5, 2009
Draught at Benelux, Montral, QC. Pours a slightly hazy golden-orange with an average size diminishing creamy white head. Aroma is yeasty, slightly sugary sweet, along with banana, some spices and caramel malt. Flavour of yeast and wheat along with spices and herbs and some hops and alcohol in the finish. A little more alcohol then Id like but I still enjoyed it.
