(Dégusté avec french tickler) Une biere de couleur orange brumeux, avec presque pas de collet non-collant. Odeur d’alcohol, un peu fruité, miel et oranges. Saveur un peu salé, alcohol et également un peu épicé. Boutip (6397) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 4, 2008
Bottle: Poured a hazy blonde color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consist of a very nice Belgian malt base with some spicy yeast and some light white grapes notes. Taste is also a very well balance mix between some spicy peppery yeast with some notes white grapes and a strong semi-sweet malt backbone. Great carbonation with a full body and no apparent alcohol. I really enjoyed that one and definitely like it then most of the other offering. Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 28, 2008
Bottle shared with Hogtown Harry, Blankboy, Jerc, Mabel, and GregClow, courtesy of blankboy. Medium yellow, small white head. Pleasant lemony aroma, yeasty as well. Nice taste - more yeast, lemon, light and floral. Good, refreshing. I apparently liked it more than most based on these scores! rodenbach99 (4572) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 19, 2008

[1516-20080711] 750 bottle. Light floral yeast aroma. Hazy, light orange brown body with a quick foamy white head. Floral yeast flavour has a hint of banana fizz. Medium body is fizzy. Surprisingly drinkable, not too alcoholic.

Overheard: "Brown... smells like Quebec."
My Bottle (750ml) shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jerc, mabel & tupalev. 2008 vintage. Pours a slightly hazy yellow-orange with an average size white head. Aroma’s sweet and yeasty along with a bit of fruit and spices. Flavour’s the same: Sweet, yeasty and fruity but I find the lightly hoppy finish a little iffy, not sure why. I get no alcohol at all which is impressive -- is this really 10%? Average bodied. Nothing great but still decent, I didn’t mind it. GregClow (3402) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 20, 2008
Bottle shared with blankboy, HogTownHarry, jerc, mabel & tupalev - courtesy of blankboy. Bright golden with a small white head. Aroma is sourish and slightly yeasty, with that indescribable note that appears in so many middle-rate Quebec beers. Thin body. Flavour has fruity notes of chardonnay, a bit of spice, mild yeast - kinda reminds me of a saison, actually. Not too bad despite the so-so aroma - although I find the 10% alc hard to believe, seems more like 6% or 7% to me. jercraigs (10527) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 15, 2008
2008-07-11. Golden yellow with a modest white head. (3+) Lightly yeasty aroma with touches of alcohol and fruit notes. Light alcohol in the flavour is restrained considering the alcohol content. Light fruit, hints of the wine though perhaps I am looking for it - I’m not sure if I would have picked it out without knowing it was there. Average palate. Decent but a bit dull.

Bottle (750ml). Shared by blankboy with gregclow, jerc, mabel & tupalev. Clear pale amber, small wispy whitish head. Aroma reminds me of a dry, light hefeweizen - fruity (banana, apple) and mildly spicy - sweet and clean. Taste - strong apple, slightly oxidized, mild alcohol (10%? really?), sweet yeast, light banana, but a little thin. Weak body, mild carbonation, slightly papery in the finish - has that "Quebec" character I can’t define --- but it’s there. french tickler (649) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 2, 2008
Shared with Pyrozoid
Cloudy orange poor with a thin off white head.
Apple, creme brulé, honey, caramel, bananas and coriander
Acid, overpowering carbonation at first... alcohol, lightly sweet and nicely bitter... lightly shalky
Apples, white cranberries... bananas...
Notes: There’s something throwing me off taste wise... is it the chalkyness? Over-carbonation?...
