When our brewers decided to craft our first ever ale, they wanted it to be extraordinary. They chose one of the oldest and rarest ale styles in the world, a Dusseldorf-style altbier or "old beer". To honour the authenticity of this rare beer style, we collaborated with Zum Schlussel, a brewing institution in Dusseldorf for over 160 years and one of four original breweries known for this style. Not only did they share their vast knowledge of making an altbier but they also shared their special strain of yeast with us. True to style, the result is a dark mahogany hued beer with roasted nutty malt flavour and an intensifying hop finish.

Pours clear dark copper with a foamy tanned head. Aroma is nuts and carmel malts. Smooth mouthful and low carbination makes it very easy to drink. Good beer.

lesifflebiere (1817) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 10, 2016
Cest une bire rousse, un peu rougeoyante mais surtout cuivre, limpide et demie mince, avec une courte tte de mousse rable. Le nez est de noisettes, de caramel. En bouche, les houblons dominent comme il se doit, stridence assez constante qui vient couper le sucre. Les saveurs se portent plutt du ct du sucre brun avec un brin de pamplemousse. Une agrable offrande qui correspond bien au style.

Canned. Aroma of yeast, the body is weak and the flavor is light. Overall a weak beer.

Crockett (1116) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 16, 2016
Pours deep red amber with a nice pillowy off white sudsy head. Id give it a 5 for appearance... but its filtered. Nose of caramelized bread pans... yeast...even a little whiff of smoke and mild berry. Initially came across as a bit sweet, but its passable. Clean bready malts, with hints of smoke, cocoa, dried cherry, and some minerals. Hops are quite mild. Earth and tea tannins. Cut dried grass. Its an altbier but it doesnt taste like they would make it in the past. Too refined. Its good though.

HippyHop (625) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 26, 2015
341ml bottle stolen from my step-dad (thanks!) Pour is mahogany. Caramel, roasted grain and nuts, hay, mineral water. There's a faint spicy hop presence, a crisp, bitter finish, but I give this a passing grade mostly for being unremarkably drinkable. I'm with Tiki below: I don't mind these guys, but their product line could use some diversity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Olfactif discret compos de noisettes, de grains, dune touche de beurre et dherbes fraiches. De couleur ambre trs fonce, presque brune, elle dveloppe une mousse paisse, dense et persistante. En entre de bouche, les noisettes dominent, laissant par la suite leffervescence sactiver et staler jusqu la finale dintenses notes herbaces aux tons de persil et dherbes amres. quilibre et dlicate, cette bire est tout fait dans le style.. Une vrai bire de soif.
