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. rederic (3341) - 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.

Pours orange amber with a white frothy head. Aroma brings a blend of some spicy Belgian yeast and white wine. The flavor is stronger, bringing spicy and sweet white chardonnay blended with Belgian yeast flavors. 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! TheJester (2542) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 5, 2009
750 mL bottle. A lovely, clear copper-orange with a thick, off-white head. It fades, but never fully disappears. Lots of active bubbles. Fruity sweetness (peaches and sweet apple) with some citrus and grassy malt on the nose doesn’t add up to much. The grape shows up in the flavour and the aftertaste, and it’s more of a dryish grape juice than a wine flavour. The malt hides underneath, and is a little thin. A (surprisingly) little alcohol appears at the end. Quite heavily carbonated, and not as full as it should be. An interesting one; not great, but certainly worth a try.

500 ml bottle. Pours a veiled golden with a nice white head. Aroma is malted cereals. Flavor is pale malt, very sweet, a touch of wood, maybe some white grapes, too? Finish is slightly acidic, grapes. Medium body, average carbonation, sticky mouthfeel. Nice, strong, golden ale with an interesting twist to it.

750ml bottle. Pours hazy orange with huge head. Lots of carbonation on the glass. Aroma is spicy and fruity (orange). Taste is a bit dry (white wine like). Taste is light green grapes (white wine like). Low carbonation on the palate. Alcohol completely hidden. Interesting beer. Glad I’ve tried it. Rating #42.

Goût vineux léger, malt, caramel pâle, légère astringence. Carbonation moyenne-faible, corps moyen. sseb69 (1932) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 16, 2013
Bouteille 750 ml. 10%. Blonde, effervesncente, mousse blanche. Arôme de levure, fuitée. En bouche, se boit très bien, douce, fruitée, agrumes un peu de levures. Des bulles. Très bonne. lesifflebiere (1928) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 22, 2013
Blonde qui libère, sans surprise, des flaveurs très avinées rappelant parfois le champagne (bas de gamme il faut dire). Notes acidulées en fin de bouche. Effervescence forte mais de circonstances. Belle couleur dorée franc. Mélange bien balancé, effet réussi.
