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.

Bottle at Banquise, Montreal. Golden pour with a modest head. Fairly neutral nose. Slightly bready with a bit of general fruit salad. Drinking experience defined by how effervescent it is. Fairly milquetoast, but ultimately inoffensive. Solid backyard BBQ sipper.

The beer of the bear. Boreale is as commercial a microbrewery can be. It is really cheap and it reminds me of university. Still have one once a while. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: APR 21, 2017 Good beer, surprisingly better than expected. A good backup when in doubt. Disappointing to see the Polar Edition to be the same as this.

Bottle from local iga grocery A: light cereal, honeyed malt. App: clear pale sparring white head. T/p: med body with short bitter finish. Soft to moderate carbonation. O: A bit boring and watery. The beer geek in me would have enjoyed more malt support. Easy and refreshing.

Bierdimpfe (640) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 22, 2017
Slightly hazy golden color with low activity. A boring foamy white 2 finger head, lasting around 5 minutes, with poor lacing. Flavors of caramel, sweet roasted grains, coriander, lemon, herbal spices. Bready and sugary, slightly sharp on the herbal side. Slick medium body with soft prickly and crispy carbonation. Light to medium strength finish, fresh wheat and barley feel, toffee, and balanced leafy hops. Basic but refreshing, nice intensity with no adjunct feel. Good taste and a satisfying body. Overall good quality craft.

Arcanor (422) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 8, 2017
341ml bottle. Pour clear golden with a non lasting small white head. Aroma is shy, but it’s from light malt and pretty mainstream. Body is thin but in the style, very soft carbonation. Light bitterness from the discret hops. Medium finish. Refreshing and well done.

Bottle, 341mL. Home. Kindly given by my parents ; bought during a trip at "Vendée Globe". Merci ! A clear golden beer with a big white head ; good retention ; ok lacing. Grain, light vegetable, herbal note. Light sweet, light dry bitter refreshing. Light body, watery texture, average to soft carbonation, dry short grainy finish. Overall, poor.

czar (9592) - 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.
Earlier Rating: 7/3/2011 Total Score: 2.7
