Bouteille de 341 ml, couleur jaune clair, avec une mousse très discrète. Le malt est très présent au nez et en bouche. Désaltérant, encore meilleur avec des chips All dress.

czar (8312) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 12, 2016
can courtesy of magnetic mathieuc, thanks bro. pours clear bright gold with a small creamy white head offering some retention and lacing. classic fruity honeyed boreal malts, relatively fresh cereals, chalky lightly astringent herbs, thin butter slice, softly bitter clementine peel. moderate carbonation, thin but watery; relatively dry citrusy finish. boréale doée reminiscence, just thinner with a tiny supplementary hop infusion. it could stick to its polar label for its honey, tea and herbs infused concoction. a lot more honey than butter, guys. o-k.

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2016 Can (355 ml) at home. As "Boréale Édition Polaire" sold at SAQ. Thanks to mathieuc for this can! Clear pale green-ish golden with a small white head leaving some lacing. Aroma of wet grains, butter, caramel and herbal notes. Taste is of sweet cereals, wet grains / borderline skunk, butter, caramel and light bitterness. Light-medium body. Moderate carbonation. Bland finish. Did they send a batch of something that went wrong to the SAQ instead of throwing it down the drain? I don’t know, but the beer is now thrown down the drain where it belong. Awful.

mathieuc (3591) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 7, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2016 New SAQ exclusive release. Pours a super clear golden with a small white head that leaves nice lacing. Nose isn’t centered around hops to say the least despite the "Pale Ale" moniker. More like some sweet cereals, caramel and even some buttery angles (WTF?). A little floral but still a long shot from being described as "hoppy". Taste is more of the same, ugh. Lightly bitter with a lot of caramel/butterscotch. Body is medium, carbonation moderate. Well, that was awkward. I’ll use the other cans to cook... Garbage.

Can. Pours a clear golden with a really small white head that fades into a small rim that leaves good lacing. Nose is of fruits and cereals, simple but as advertised. Taste is of fruits and a little cardboard (how old is this?), not really sweet but not 100% dry. Cereals show up again in the flavor. Body is light to medium and carbonation moderately high. Light bitterness and drying sensation from the carb. Overall a middle of the road kind of beer. Not sure why I’d drink that except if there is nothing else around.

Bouteille de 341 ml. Couleur blonde avec une bonne mousse. Arôme de zeste d’orange et de céréales. Goût de malte, de zestes d’agrumes et de divers grains. Bonne bière facile à boire.

Vraiment pas convaincu par les bières Boreale. On est légèrement sur l’agrume mais rien de vraiment tranché. Une bière de soif pas plus.

vadie (1253) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2016
Jaune pâle avec presque pas de mousse. L’arôme très faible des céréales et houblon floral. En bouche c’est très timide avec les même saveurs de dans l’arôme.

Franckg (1386) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 27, 2016
Bouteille avec un BB du 07/07/2016. Robe jaune claire avec un mince col de mousse blanc. Arômes de malt citronné, petite touche de gazon et sucre résiduel. En bouche, c’est orienté vers le malt sucré et citronné, très léger houblon, un peu de terre, gazon, chair d’orange. Correcte pour ce que c’est.
