BDM’s best beer. Don’t approach it as a pure belgian - rather an American Amber/Belgian hybrid. Orange/Red pour with 2 fingers of frothy white head. big gobs of lacing. Spice in the aroma, earth, yeast, caramel, mixed nuts. Taste is a combination of spice, yeast, a bit of vanilla, dark fruits, a bit of nuttiness, earth and wood - very complex. Medium bodied and creamy. To this day I’m not sure what BDM was going for but this beer is delicious, especially on tap. yespr (44797) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - OCT 21, 2011
From tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is toasted caramelish and light fruity. Phenolic, caramelish and light toasted malty. Subdued fruity and bitter to herbal. Bitter and herbal dry finish. Atheist_Peace (981) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUL 9, 2011
341ml bottle. Clear amber pour with a finger of head that vacates quickly and leaves almost no lace. Bread and fruit on the nose with a hint of caramel on the nose. A little booze on the palate with a lot of caramel and some bread and fruit. Finishes bittersweet. Not bad, but fairly uninteresting.

Bottle. Medium tea-amber, brief white head that recedes to a ring. Aroma is nicely malty, light toast and porty fruits. Flavours are more fruit-forward, golden raisins cooked apples, with light toasty caramel. Quite tasty, I’d be happy to have a few of these in a Montreal pub. BLAP (73) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 17, 2011
Deep blond hazy ale with minimal collar. Subtile candy aroma. Simple but well balanced.

Similar to the other beer I have tried from this brewery, Montréalaise. Nothing exceptional but still a decent drinkable beer of some quality. Not sure if I would buy it again given that there are some better alternatives but nevertheless still enjoying it. czar (8996) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 6, 2011
on tap at brewpub. clear dark golden, almost copper, with a disappearing white head. grainy, wheat, toasted malts, faint malts though. some citrus, vanilla and orange, bananas, cloves. floral-citrus hops (nice) with an herbal medium long finish. harsh carbonation, light body. ok.

Aroma of malt with just a hint of hops. Clear amber body, decent head. Taste is a malty fruitiness with some saison-like elements creating a slightly vegetable finish. Mouthfeel is a little watery. Slightly intriguing, but flawed.

Bottle PELUSO .Nice coppery clear dense look, small white head. Aroma is a bit suspect - fishy overtones? - but has dense acidic fruit. Flavor is definitely a trace fishy, like how my hands smell after a day on the fishing boat - did the chick on the label donate the yeast culture? OK this is a bottle from a reputable shop, it gets the rate. Some nice fruit and acidy tones under the initial putridly pescatorial presence. Medium feel and nicely sweet-dry finish, some good qualities underneath. But its like I’m eating a fish cracker with it. No way are fish scale flavors in beer intentional, even in French-speaking Canada. sseb69 (1907) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 8, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2010 Bouteille 341 ml. 6.5%. Couleur ambrée claire. Arôme de levures, un peu d’agrumes et d’épices. En bouche, maltée et légèrement fruitée. Légères notes de caramel et d’alcool. Finale un peu sucrée et une légère amertume.
