tiggmtl (4543) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 7, 2005
Cedar, leaves, lavender, sage, white pepper and celery in the spicy aroma. Clear caramel-copper coloured body with a decent and lasting fine-bubbled off-white head that leaves some fair lacing. Cedar, peppery spiciness and yeasty flavours mingle nicely. Smooth and creamy texture with a gentle effervesence that caresses the tongue and cheeks. Truly a unique artisanal beer from a master craftsman. Sampled at Mondial de la Bière 2005.

muzzlehatch (4969) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 7, 2005
Sample at the Mondial de la Biere. Copper-bronze, almost clear, lots of visible carbonation, lasting head and some lace...cedar/birch-bark nose, amazing sharp and full of stingy herbs, lavender and a bit of brown sugar, wow...dry, strong herbal character in the body, twiggy with a velvet-soft mouthfeel, luscious carbonation, just a bit of sugar...really over-the-top, the first thing I thought of was root beer, a dry, alcoholic root beer. That’s a good thing, and so is this beer.

mds (2256) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 7, 2005
Bottle. copper body with small floaties and a medium size head. wow, this is a crazy aroma! Flowers, vegetables, hemp, christmas trees, yeast, and dusty hops are all evident in the aroma...plus about a dozen other things I can’t identify. Sharp earthy vegetable flavour. Light carbonation. This has to be the most interesting beer I’ve ever tried. Awesome.

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.

OlivierMTL (709) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 6, 2005
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.

3.9
Boutip (6533) - 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.

Sammy (12760) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 5, 2005

3.3
TaktikMTL (7967) - 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)

3.6
ClarkVV (6862) - 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.

4.2
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.
