dhurtubise (568) - Hamilton, Ontario, - MAY 4, 2004
A problematic beer with a sourness associated with soured beer. The beer had probably thinned out as a result and was not particularly palatable.

UPDATED: MAY 7, 2014 En regardant les commentaires de la majorité des personnes, je dois avoir tombé sur une meilleure cuvée. J’ai pris cette bière une fois a La Barberie vers Janvier 2012. Bière Brune-ambrée avec un mince col. Nez de caramel,malt grillé sucré. En bouche caramel,malt grillé, beaucoup trop sucré pour moi et se bois lentement mais je ne suis pas prêt a dire que cette bière est infecte.

Viper666 (3283) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 4, 2013
Bouteille 500ml. Nez de caramel (butterscotch), léger de chocolat malté et d’alcool. Mince-moyenne en bouche. Goût fruité aux notes acides (traces ce derises sûres) lors de l’entrée suivi d’un goût de caramel sucré très légèrement rôti avec des notes de chocolat noir légèrement amer et des notes d’alcool. Arrière-goût légèrement aigre (fruit) avec une très légère amertume de rôti et d’alcool.

ChazyRPh (583) - Chazy, New York, USA - JAN 29, 2007
5/2003 on the bottle. Opaque dark brown with medium tan head. Malty aroma, sweet malt, kinda smells like Mop-n-Glow. Tastes like it too. Vinagary, I thought it was infected, however based on the other ratings of this crap, I guess it is bang on.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 26, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2006 500 ml bottle. Dark brown-reddish color with a medium brown head with average retention. Fruity aroma!!! A Scotch Ale with a fruity aroma? Thick body. Taste is acidic, cardboard, rotten fruits that ends with an unpleasant bitterness. According to the bottle I tasted, it was bottled almost a year ago. Infected bottle or bad beer? The one thing I’m sure about is that this beer was worst than death itself, at least death doesn’t get worse every year.

Lubiere (13566) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2005
Deep reddish brown with a thin moka head. Light caramel in aroma. Sweet caramel in mouth, with notes of licorice, but rather watery overall, with little body. Falls flat. On tap at Vices et Versa. At least, it was not contaminated, as in the bottled version.

Paskal (146) - La Prairie, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2005
Bière à l’arôme de fruits et de sucre. Elle possède une couleur caramel aux reflets rougeoyant, coiffée d’une mousse dense et persistante. Acidité douce ainsi que la présence de houblon en bouche.--Bottle-Beer with fruits and caramel aroma. It has a caramel-like color with reddish shadows, crowned with thick head and lasting. Sweet acid feeling in mouth with hops presence.

Gunny (41) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - APR 15, 2005
500mL bottle. Bottled on date of 09/04. Mahogany with a noisy, quickly dissapating offwhite head. I smell Flemish Sour when I should be enveloped in sweet malt. Unpleasant vinegar flavour with a metallic twang. The finish is dry cherry flavoured Chapstick. I couldn’t find a Scotch Ale hiding anywhere.

omhper (24647) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 18, 2004
Bottled. Dark brown, rich head. Strong lemony nose. Sweet with syrupy mouthfeel. Flowery and yeasty with some vinegar. Besides it’s beautiful appearance there not really any redeeming features.
