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.

Boutip (6179) - 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 (7411) - 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 (6300) - 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 (5816) - 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?

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.

Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - APR 6, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2005 Cheesy, hand-made label is hard to look past; but I’m not judging a cover here. Head is thin, but somewhat lasting. Color is amber, which blends - from top to bottom - into a hazy yellow-orange. Interesting nose, with wafts of herbal tea, pumpkin pie and lemon yogurt. First sip made my left eyebrow raise. A couple seconds later my second eyebrow raised. My tongue went for a roller coaster ride for a second there; didn’t know if it was fun or I was gonna hurl. Soon realized it was positive. Smooth malts up front, quickly turn into an explosion of spices, many reminiscent of teas I’ve had before. Strong lemony citrus exudes throughout, occasionally morphing into tangerine, lime, and back to lemon. Lively carbonation. Fizzy, sugary and soft-drink-like at times. Some sourness. Dryish, spicy finish. What a weird, albeit well-made, fricken beer.
