Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 6, 2005
Rusty orange. Extremely foamy head, sticking on the glass like there’s no end, beautiful lacing capacity. Awesome core pencil shavings yeasty nose. Granite rockiness, overwhelming wood notes. Incredibly complex and jumping at you. Lime and pepper yeasty interplays. It smells like chips, it smells like cedar resin and spruce. Very green aroma, tea like chamomile notes with more spice depth reminiscent of sage and thyme. Very fun to sniff and decorticate, but there’s no way you can figure what’s in there. Rooty greenish flavours. Mellow chillies, spice blend, cumin and maybe even salt. It is very dry in mouth, campfire like or moreso sawdust like dryness, earthy and highly pleasant, just not as enticing as the fiery aroma. Creamy palate, light carbonation, perhaps not as lively as most Fantôme, but even more original and unique.

Ambrée, semi opaque, plein de minuscules dépôts présents partout dans le verre. Grosse mousse épaisse, crémeuse et passablement persistante. Amalgame d’arômes inhabituels et intéressants; Sauge, thym, poivre blanc, lavande, racine et bois de cèdre. Corps de densité moyenne, texture crémeuse. Cette bière ne possède pas toute les mêmes caractéristiques habituelles des produits de cette brasserie mais est tout aussi étonnante. Passablement sèche en bouche. Échantillon mondial de la bière, Juin 2005.

Boutip (6321) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 6, 2005
Sample at the Mondiale 2005: Poured an extremely cloudy color ale with big thick head with good retention. Aroma of juniper and rosemary are extremely easy to detect. Taste is a mix between the rosemary and the Belgian yeast with a real farmhouse taste behind it. I really enjoyed this non-conventional beer.

TaktikMTL (7733) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 4, 2005
Verre de dégustation (provenant d’une bouteille verte de 750 ml) au Mondial de la Bière 2005 (Montréal, QC). Arôme: Explosion d’épices et d’herbes (Menthe, thym, gingembre, poivre entre autre). Apparence: Bière brune voilée. Aucun col. Aucune bulle. Fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Les mêmes épices perçus en arômes reviennent. Court arrière goût. Palette: Les corps est moyen avec une texture huileuse. Arrière goût d’épices. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. (Rating #177)

ClarkVV (6642) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 4, 2005
UPDATED: APR 18, 2007 2005 bottle at the Mondial. Hazy, copper-amber, muddy, brown. Lots of yeast suspended. Head provides lacing. Beige, somewhat retained, but slowly works its way to a ring. Aroma is very herbal, bitter, astringent dry, but the yeast flavor and aroma is amazing. Dry tea. Flavor is vinegar, herbs, leafy/fuzzy green hops, hemp. Quite oily on the palate, though not watery. Not much sweetness, low tingly carbonation. Very very herbally, wow. Medium body.

Miguel (1181) - Saint-Ours, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 3, 2005
Mondial de la Bière de Montréal 2005. Thym au nez et en bouche. Très spéciale, très bonne. Bien balancée avec le malt et le houblon.

notalush (5866) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 28, 2005
Cloudy copper pour, high carbonation makes a large, fizzy head that quickly settles to a small ring of foam - spicy aroma, lemongrass, lime leaves, ginger, some earthiness and grass, grain - light, airy carbonation in the mouthfeel - bready malts, ginger again, herbal tea-like qualities - has the earthiness of a biere de garde - I detect some hops, orange peel - light and refreshing, yet complex and flavorful at the same time - who could ask for more?

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - APR 20, 2005
Lime cookies on the nose. lots of spice, pepper, clove, nutmeg, grains of paradise,stinging nettle?,cumin, curry and green tea. wonderful mouthfeel slightly oily and viscous. Big lingering finish. awesome stuff.

4.5
Marc (486) - Yokosuka, JAPAN - JUL 13, 2003
Ruddy translucent copper with a splotchy head. Nose is an unbelievable combo of cloves, brown sugar, pepper, and....go ask JorisPPattyn. The mouth takes all of wich and adds licorish root, anis, sasparilla, soap and a touch of malt. Finishes with aquavite.
