Sask89's rating

Sask89 (514) - Regina, Saskatchewan, - JAN 11, 2013
Pours a clear golden yellow colour with a huge foamy white head. Aroma is predominately of herbs and spice, with subtle citrus fruit scents. Taste is mildly sweet throughout with not much bitterness to it at all. Lighter body, thin mouth feel and average carbonation. Overall a very nice beer.

UXO (1871) - CANADA - JAN 19, 2016
Appearance: hazy medium gold with two fingers of fluffy white head, good retention and patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: brown apple, champagne yeast, floral. (5/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, mild tart, light bitter. (5/10) Palate: medium-light body, high carbonation, fruity finish. (3/5) I knew going into this that this was almost certainly well past its best-by date, and I wasnt wrong. However, since I have a fresh example of the same style in my cellar now (a DeuS Brut des Flandres) I thought it might be interesting to see how they age. In case youre wondering, the answer is not well. I get hints of what this should be, I think, but unfortunately it isnt, any more. Ill definitely try it again if I can find it fresher. (10/20)

Prufrockstar (2117) - Moscow, Idaho, USA - JAN 1, 2015
2010 750ml bottle, sent to me by jtclockwork - thanks! Pours cloudy gold-orange with white head, decent retention. Aroma: cardboard, banana laffy taffy, citrus, some cotton candy, and some special blend of herbs and spices. Taste is surprisingly sweet -- like candied orange peel spiked with Laffy Taffy. Fruity, minimally bitter finish; sweet residue lingers in the mouth. Palate: medium body, average carbonation. Overall: I had high hopes for this, and even saved it for New Years. This bottle is almost certainly past its prime, but shows glimmers of what was probably a very nice beer a few years ago.

tom10101 (5960) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 1, 2014
Bottle (750 ml). 2011 vintage. Hazy golden/orange with a frothy quickly diminishing off-white head and decent lacing. Aroma is of champagne yeast, cider-like notes, fruits, Belgiumness, malt and floral notes. Taste is also very fruity with some spiciness, cider-like notes again and a fun warming finish. Medium body. Lively carbonation. Nice beer! Better than the Malheur Brut bottle I have tried (but it was skunky...). Very nice celebration beer!

lesifflebiere (1817) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2013
Blonde odorante, trs ptillante et veloute, elle a toutes les qualits du champagne (doux fruit, sucre mais bien quilibre) sans les petits agacements (acidul, mince). Cest une bire copieuse, ronde, qui semble charmer le buveur chaque gorge, rappelant parfois sa soeur Lupulus pour son ct triple houblonne, mais ayant sa personnalit propre. Une incontournable malheureusement trop rare.

BiereLuc (1275) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 21, 2013
(version 2012 - 11% dalcool) Jaune paille avec des reflets dors, une belle coiffe de mousse et une effervescence frntique. Au nez, cest fruit et levur (le parfum me rappelle celui de la Dominus Vobiscum Triple). En bouche, les fruits sexpriment (poire, pche et peut-tre un peu de mangue?). Le lien avec le champagne est vident, surtout sur le plan de la sensation (ptillement, mouth-fill...). Du grand art!

Martinus (4591) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - NOV 8, 2012
Light orange golden beer, white head. Sweet malty aroma, spicy yeast, fruity esters, quite a lot of candy, banana. Light bitter, sweet malty flavour. Quite fizzy, champagne like. Malty finish with lots of fruity esters.
Not bad, not bad at all. But it does feel a bit like a cheap champagne, and I imagine thats not quite the idea the brewer had in mind.
