Lambic, Brussels. Deep reddish amber colour with a mediumsized small head. Aroma is wheaty, some mild rye, quite strong on the floral and fruity side and also some mild resiny notes. Flavour is fruity, floral, mild rye bread as well as some herbs and mild wheaty notes to it.
On tap at Dieu du Ciel, pours a hazy orangey dark amber with a medium beige head. Aroma of freshly baked bread and slight floral hops, and some light biscuit malts. Flavour is a bit peppery, with toasted crusted bread, some mild floral hops and crackery malts. Easily drinkable, characterized by the crusty bread and pepper. Solid APA.

Enjoyed on cask at the brewpub. Incredible cask gorgeous head and body from a cask, super lacy. Very smooth mouthfeel. Great drinkability, a concoction of orange and grapefruit.

Cask. Dark amber brown, good sized fluffy tan/off-white head and a bit of lacing. Hoppy, green, vegetable (celery?) notes in the aroma. More celery (but not...) in the flavour, pleasant moderate bitterness, caramel malt and an earthy celery bitterness and tang that is present throughout and lingers in the aftertaste. (I wonder now that I know what was in it, if it was the rye that I was having trouble describing). Light but very smooth palate. (3+) Good but not exceptional, couldn’t quite wrap my tastebuds around it. MartinT (10014) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 11, 2005

Floating citrus fruit of all kinds atop a grainy cereal broth. Inviting yet never overwhelming. Earthiness roams within the oranges, a wealthy number quietly suggesting a tongue-first dive.
An obese, viscous cereal body becomes a burden to the quaffing half way through the glass. There must be way more rye in this than most rye ales. Fruity hops blend perfectly with the flavorful, suave malts, achieving succulent balance. Yeast and rye take a lot of room on the palate, creating an earthy, wooden, resinous character, which is in unison with bitterness hops. If the palate wasn’t hindering subsequent sips with its massive girth, I would love this.

Cask at Spuyten Duyvil. Citrusy hop aroma over some rich spicy malts. A combination of lemon and grapefruit along with a bit of pine and tropical fruit. Some nice spicy wheat/rye character in the back. A hint of peppery spiciness. Flavour is good and fresh with lots of wheat and lightly caramelly malts. Nice combination of spiciness, citrusy/tropical hops and a lingering citrus flavour. Good balance. czar (9250) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 29, 2016
on tap at ddc montreal brewpub. hazy dark copper-orange with a reviving light beige head offering some retention and lacing. spicy peppery cereals, berry fruitiness, integrated caramel, never overwhelming; touch of sweetness - treacle and some maple syrup solids; astringent herbs, woodsiness, tea, english yeast. moderate carbonation, light body - oily; semi-sweet dusty and spicy-peppery finish. a bit more attenuated and this rye pale would be a tasty pub quencher. solidfunk (9200) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 23, 2012
Uneven but bitter as hell. Pretty sexy beer. Tastes like sour dough bread - it puts an awesome taste in there. Tracing is awesome and the rye does wonders for it. This was among the better tasters I had at the brewpub in Montreal last weekend. On tap.
