L’Interdite nous rappelle les barils de bières jetées aux égouts durant la prohibition aux États-Unis. Lorsque le brassage y redémarra, les houblons très amers dominèrent rapidement le marché. Nous brassons L’Interdite en souvenir de cette époque. Houblonnée pendant 90 minutes, cette bière est savoureuse et… très amère! Aux notes florales et herbacées s’ajoutent des flaveurs complexes d’agrumes et un goût légèrement malté.

L’Interdite, an American-style India Pale Ale (IPA), harkens back to 1919 when the prohibition laws forbidding the manufacture and selling of alcohol were enacted in the USA. L’Interdite invokes a time when beer barrels were dumped into the sewers during the American Prohibition era. When brewing was again permitted, powerful bittering hops rapidly dominated the market. We brew L’Interdite in homage to these times. Hopped for 90 minutes, this beer is flavorful and…very bitter! Floral and herbaceous notes are complemented by complex citrus flavours and a subtle malty taste.

lello4ever (944) - ITALY - MAY 30, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2015 Color ambra carico, schiuma bianco tende al beige poco persistente. Amara soprattutto nel finale, ma non molto convincente né dissetante. Molto frizzante.

Arômes maltés et sucrés. Les houblons sortent discrètement. Le liquide semble liquoreux. On percoit du caramel, orange, pêche. Le goût fait plus ressortir les houblons. Zeste de citron et orange dominent. C’est très amer et les arômes sucrés se font plus discrets. Longue finale houblonnée et légèrement fruitée. Pas mal.

341ml bottle served around 15 degrees in a snifter: Pours a clear copper with about a finger of white foam. The head leaves a rough lacing and carbonation is moderate. The nose is obviously hoppy and floral with a subtle grapefruit on a caramel malts backbone. On the tongue, it kicks off with a dense hoppy attack with a wrapping bitterness that I found was enjoyable and not aggressive. The malts are somewhat perceptible but at 100 IBU, you have to look harder to find them. The brew feels very dry and drops dead in your mouth without the slightest aftertaste. This IPA was the most bitter brew I came about so far and I have to say that the IBU scared me at first but I found it very enjoyable.

Can’t read the date on the label cause the paper is torn, but I get the impression this isn’t fresh. Nose is caramel, roasted grain and a bit of light orange/citrus. Taste follows with a moderately bitter pine finish. Not terrible, but not that great either. Kind of reminds me of l’Alchimiste’s IPA.

jksipa (891) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 17, 2014
Cloudy deep copper with a two finger cream coloured head that fades slowly. Nose is light roasted malts with pine and some fruit. Light toffee fronting a quite bitter middle and finish with no dominant contributing factor but made up of pine, grapefruit, grass and some flowery hops that ends up being quite muddled. Medium oily mouth with average carbonation and a dry finish. Odd.

6.5% Interdite 90 minutes on tap at the brewery. It is a lovely copper gold, the aroma is funky toe jam, fruity and piney. The taste has a solid malt backbone more toe jam, clean sharp bitter pine boughs and some light fruitiness. Hopped every 1 minute for 90 minutes, I was expecting more after I heard this was inspired by the Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA. Just OK.

Benzai (15323) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle @ home. Hazy orange color, full sized creamy off-white head that lasts for quite a while. Aroma is quite sweetish, lightly alcoholic and it reminds me more of a mix between a barley wine and a quadrupel. Weird. Taste is malts, lightly floral, again sweetish flavours but very bitter in the aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation. A bit disappointing to be honest.

Deep amber pour with a thick tan head. The nose is a bit malty with some toasted malt and a bit of soft hoppiness and some nice fruitiness. It’s got a moderate bitterness and is more earthy and slightly dank iced tea hoppiness. Decent - but the pale ale is superior.

341ml bottle. Pours a deep caramel, almost like an Apple cider, with a frothy, one finger, off white head that laces well. Aroma has nice notes of traditional hops blended with some fruity esters, pine, and a hint of citrus. Taste is bitter but balanced. Hints of pine, resin, caramel, more traditional hops, and a drawn out finish. Medium body and carbonation. Slight resin texture in the mouth but still very drinkable. Slightly dry finish. Overall a nice beer. Would have liked a bit more fruity hops but still done well.
