GoLdFiNgEr (111) - La Pocatière, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 7, 2008
Blonde impressionnante à 10%. Le fort pourcentage ne paraît pas au goût. Teinte légèrement brouillée. Bière très pétillante avec petit goût de champagne et de vin blanc. Légèrement fruitée et florale à la finale. Tirant plus vers un vin blanc qu’une bière.

EnSiFeRuM (501) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2008
Bouteille de 750 ml. La bière est de couleur jaune paile légèrement trouble. La mousse est imposante du début jusqu’à la fin. Au nez on découvre des arômes de poire, de pomme, de raisin, d’alcool, de champagne et de poivre. En bouche la bière a un bon corps et possède des flaveurs semblable à ce que le nez avait détecté antérieurement, c’est-à-dire le raisin, l’alcool, le champagne, la pomme et la poire. La finale est poivrée et sucrée. Le 10% d’alcool est bien camouflé.

Lubiere (13900) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 9, 2006
Hazy golden ale with a thick white head. Sweet white wine aroma. Rather sweet malt with alcohol notes and dryish finish. Light bodied. Mondial 2005.

rederic (3337) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 3, 2005
On tap at Vices et Versa, hazy amber-orangeish hue, with a shy white head, with floral hop,, fruity, chardonnay grapes aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate, with a sweet acidic chardonnay grapes, tartness and winey accent, leading to a dry sirupy vinous finish.

2.6
muzzlehatch (4959) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 23, 2005
Draught sample at the Mondial. Winey, slightly citrusy nose with whiffs of honey emanates fro the oily dark placid blonde surface that leaves no head.....white wine evident in the body, acidic, with light alcohol, some lactic sourness and a bit of golden raisin...malt very undeveloped here, basically too acidic and sour in the final calculation.

ClarkVV (6708) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 15, 2005
On draught at Mondial, 6/5/05. Deep shimmering, goldenrod colored beer, head quickly recedes to nothing and the body is fairly still. Aroma is lightly peachy and has some pear skins, apple pulp, white grapes and a bit of sweet malt. Flavor is lightly acidic up front, with a drying, earthy grapes and golden apples flavor that is rather dry and acidic. Light malt sugars give some sweetness, while the body is very thick, syrupy-like and viscous. Lightens up a bit on the finish, with some floral notes, more peachy-chardonnay flavors and a bit of sourish yeast. Odd beer, but for as much as I dislike chardonnay, I actually sort of enjoyed this one. Medium body, very low carbonation, as mentioned, but the flavor sticks to the palate fairly well, wine is not overdone.

2.8
tiggmtl (4545) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 15, 2005
Dry, wine-like, fruity aroma. Clear, golden-tan with low, white, fully-diminishing head. Very dry, wine-like flavour with sweet underlying grainy malt notes and light grassy hop flavour. Almost no bitterness allows both wine and malt characters to show through. Medium body is very dry with low carbonation. An interesting and well-received experiment, though I’m not so sure I’d want to drink a whole lot of this one. Sampled at Mondial de la Bière 2005.

beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 10, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2009 Cloudy golden pour with a thin white head. Aroma of grapes with some sourness. Flavor of grapes, yeast with some acidity. The body is light with a creamy texture and lively carbonation. I never expect much from this brewery, but this one is good. Previous rating : 6/3/6/3/13 3.1.

MartinT (9880) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 7, 2005
The Lure:
White grapes and floating yeast conjure up some tart predictions. Banana sweetness lies within, but that yeast is still bugging me.

The Festivities:
A sticky yeast and placid white wine fruitiness dissolve into an easy-going finish. A light acidity lashes the tongue, but all in all this tastes unpolished and perhaps too young.

Transcendence:
Apparently the neighbor’s started brewing beer.
