Pours golden yellow with a glorious white head. The aroma is very reminiscent of a good champaine. Green apple, biscuit, bay leaf, pepper, butter, and mineral. The flavor is quite subtle and complex. Green apple, mineral, biscuit, herb, honey, spice, butter, and a hint of oak. Freaking awesome. Savvy1982 (1706) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 6, 2011
Bottle, thanks to hobbersr. Pours clear golden, MASSIVE white head, disturbing lacing - just way too good. Nose is creamy champagne, fresh brioche and wild mushroom, almost truffle. Some florals and cream; think La Chouffe, but so much more than that! Flavours of cream, spice, very complex, very rich, very champagne-like. Subtle and phenomenal. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - FEB 5, 2011
750, corked, baled, and heavily foiled. Gorgeously elegant presentation. Like champagne in a bottle. Wait. What? Thanks, Dany! Pours a cloudy bright medium golden with a densely bubbled white head. Spicy nose of cloves, white pepper, and black peppercorns, along with some bright notes of caramel and floral notes, but those are a bit more subdued. Fizzy, assertive medium body, very present and very charming. Floral, herbal, grassy, caramel, and spicy notes on the mid-palate. Much going on.

Pours golden with a more-than-3-fingers head. Very bubbly, but micro-bubbles, so it’s very pleasant. Spicy and orangy. Medium body. There’s a little sweet edge at the end with an herbal hop finish. VERY nice.

Bouteille de 750 ml, pour fêter l’arrivée de 2011. Arômes de levure fruitée et épicée (agrumes). Légère présence d’un houblon herbacé. Robe dorée et limpide, très belle mousse et effervescence champenoise (c’est très bien réussi à ce niveau!). En bouche, la bière montre une belle base maltée mielleuse, moyennement sucrée. La levure et les épices apportent des notes rappelant l’écorce d’orange. L’alcool contribue une touche réchauffante en finale. Une bonne bière, idéale pour partager avec des invités lors d’une occasion spéciale. cfrancis (3444) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2010
Fantastic looking beer, pours a golden yellow with a generous foamy white head and lots of carbonation. Aroma is cereal and grain. Taste is very much like a champagne, lots of great carbonation that tickles the palate. Very dry and the taste of dusty grain lingers. Great beer!! frankyjus5000 (7) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 12, 2010 does not count
best champenoise ever! They bought some machine from france to turn over the bottles like the real champagne!!! It makes foams like champagne and it is just perfect..... Congratulation! JulienHuxley (5806) - Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 18, 2010
Bottle. Blond pour with a huge white and solid foam. Aroma is quite discrete with tropical fruits (mostly pears with some peaches and pinneaples), some yeast bananas and cereal. Taste is sadly more leaning toward tropical fruits than belgium yeast. Appropriate carbonation but the palate is unfortunately too liquorous for the style. You can feel the alcohol presence. Still a very good beer but with a steep retail price (25$), I was expecting better. I guess I prefer a cleaner version of the style such as Malheur Brut. rodenbach99 (4572) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 29, 2010
Poured from a 750ml bottle, cork, bought at Grand Duc, (price...very expensive), drank from a Orval calice. Nice golden colour, with thin head. Apricot and spices aroma. Very tasty, powerfull, spices, very long aftertaste, very good warming beer. 8/10
