probstblueribbon (3791) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 3, 2010
500 ml bottle from Marche Omni, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: hazy deep amber with a decent light tan foam. Aroma: Green, herbaceous, bitter, pine/resinous hops, a little bright, spicy, peppery, almost Saison-ish, a hint of ginger and floral notes, Palate: Medium body, loose, sparse effervescence. Flav.: Plenty of the same hop notes, green, pepper, resin, pine, a little floral, a bit more malt for support (thankfully), a little fruity (apricots, peaches?), a bit of honey, certainly a hop showcase; dry with good bitterness and a biscuit malt and honey finish, lingering bitterness.

Interesting stuff. Bold use of hops. Bravo.

Pours a cloudy yellow amber with a big frothy white head. Aroma is malt and hop, with slight floral. Taste is mainly malt and a mild hoppiness. Slight smoke in the aftertaste with a floral mix. Interesting beer.

500ml bottle, hazy amber-orangeish hue, with a big fluffy white head, yeasty, fruity, nice floral hop leafy nose with some piney, cedary, coniferous accents, and a hint of pine bark in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty, faint fruity, juicy hop character with some flowery hoppy, piney, resiny flavors, with a mild citrusy, lime note, and a light peppery, leafy minty accent, leading towards a good hop, piney, leafy, resiny, dry bitterness finish.

Viper666 (3283) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 23, 2009
Bouteille 500ml. De couleur ambrée-cuivrée et voilée. Nez de houblon résineux, légèrement herbeux et aux notes terreuses, malté de caramel avec des notes de toffee et moyennement fruité (agrumes, traces d’abricots). Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture très légèrement crémeuse avec de faibles notes résineuses. Goût moyennement amer de houblon résineux et aux notes citriques de pamplemousse (une amertume présente toute la gorgée) accompagné d’un léger-moyen goût de levures fruitées (agrumes, faibles notes d’abricots, traces de pêche) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût malté de caramel doux avec des notes de grains frais, de pain et des traces de toffee puis en finale l’amertume de houblon reprend le dessus en se faisant plus asséchante et légèrement herbeuse (herbes humides, faibles traces de thé). Post-goût moyen et légèrement sec, moyennement amer de houblon résineux, légèrement herbeux et aux notes citriques avec un léger goût fruité (pelures d’abricots).

AlainG (2144) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 29, 2012
Bière à la robe ambrée, voilée, coiffée d’un col de mousse se dissipant en un temps restreint laissant une dentelle éparse. Des arômes houblonnés, maltés, fruités et floraux virevoltent pour créer une senteur agréable dans son ensemble. Des saveurs passablement amères, fruitées, avec un petit côté sucré, par le miel, constituent à lui donner son goût. Au fil des gorgées, des pointes de gingembre sollicitent nos papilles, pourtant déjà très occupées. (215-250412)

punkska101 (1948) - Chambly, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 24, 2012
bottle labeled 09.2011. A: citrusy, some burnt caramel / roastiness App : clear dark copper color with lasting white head with good lacing . T/P : body is medium finish is bitter and is medium long. The more you drink it, it gets less bitter you switch to a dry finish. The kind you would get from the usage of roasted malt. Average carbonation O : Good like the "dry" finish on that beer and the bitterness. If I had to change a thing I would put more emphasis on aroma hops.
