on tap at ddc montreal brewpub. cloudy light brown pour, burnt orange tint, with a reviving light beige orange head, some lacing. sweet browned bananas, fruity peppery rye, tartish berries, sweet orange-red potatoes, some plain brown sugar as well, salt, pepper, vanilla traces, expressive yeast with lots of fruity esters. moderate carbonation, medium body - oily; dull sweet and spicy finish. a rather linear sweet and spicy rye concoction. not for me.

En fût au broue-pub de Montréal. Belle robe noisette et presque opaque, coiffée d’une mousse beige et d’épaisseur moyenne. Arôme malté/houblonné avec des notes de bois, de levures et de banane. Sont goût légèrement dominé. par les saveurs maltées comprend des nuances de houblon, de grain, de fumée et de levures. Finale boisée. Pas mal. j12601 (11055) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 24, 2012
On tap at Dieu du Ciel. Pours a hazy ruby amber with a medium sized white to beige head. Sweet banana notes, caramel and musk. Medium bodied, big creamy mouthfeel, full of bananas with a touch of smoked caramel. Really smooth, big and filling. I don’t get a lot of spicy rye here until the little bit of spice and pumpernickel notes that delicately show up on the finish, but what is here is lovely. Loads of creamy bread pudding textures and sweet banana. Very nice stuff. rederic (3335) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 28, 2011

on tap at DdC. amber orange with a thin beige head. lots of rye, spices and fruit notes in the aroma. sourdough bread and sweet malts hit the tongue initially, ended by some nice floral hops. mouthfeel is light and refreshing. was very good with the sandwich platter offered by the brewery.

Tap at Mondiale 2010. Pours a deep woody brown with a beige lasting fluffy head. Aroma is big spicy rye malt, herbal peppery spices like cardamon mixing with yeasty phenolics, clove and light plastic- as it warms more fruity yeasty esters come out- some banana hefeweizen character and warm rye bread. Flavor is more banana some phenolic clove, cardamon, pepper, soft rye malts, light earth, leafy, dust, big bready yeast character and dough with more zesty fresh rye malt in the end and clean full mouthfeel like a hefeweizen, and a smooth finish- easy drinking. Crazy good. robinvboyer (4611) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 28, 2010
on tap at the brewpub.
Aroma of grains, rye, pale malts, and lots of cereal. faint wet cardboard.
Flavor is some what watery, but had a faint smokiness, and some rye grains. nothing special, not one of their better efforts. LadySusan (766) - Ste-Therese, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 16, 2010
Taster at teh Mondial de la biere 2010 Montréal. The colr is a hazy amber with a thin beige head. The aroma is of rye. The taste is sweet like candies and berry fruits, also malt. Very different taste and also very pleasing. Lubiere (13796) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 23, 2010
A hazy murkey brown ale with a thin moka head. An interesting aroma of brown sugar, woods extract, light perfumey notes, some mustard seed in vanilla fudge. In mouth, a sweet malt with fusel and wood, a bit thin for my taste, oily mouthfeel. On tap at Mondiale de la Bière 2010. Boutip (6336) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 21, 2010
Draft: Poured a deep amber color ale with large foamy head with good retention. Aroma of rye malt is quite dominant with light sweet notes also noticeable. Taste is not the most complex but very refreshing with loads of rye and minimal hops presence. Sweetness is pretty subdued and cereal taste is quiet fresh. Body is about average with good carbonation. Not complex but easily drinkable and quiet enjoyable.
