Bierdimpfe (640) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 18, 2017
Veiled dark copper color with a bit of activity. Slightly creamy and bubbly light brown 2 finger head, lasting around 5-10 minutes, with light legs and poor swirl activity. Flavors of toffee, roasted grains, honey, apples, berries, nutmeg, ginger, peppercorn, herbal spices. Nice bready sugary feel, but quite sharp and spicy, very dry and a little astringent, with a sensation of mead. Light creamy and slick medium to full body with pleasant consistency, a good crisp and some prickly carbonation. Strong finish, some burnt butterscotch, smoky barley, with dry red ale spices and leafy flowery hops. Slightly vinous, with a dash of Belgian yeast I think because it’s quite bold but still decently fresh. Good taste and a satisfying body. Overall very good quality craft.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2016 Honey and malt in the nose. Brown with a fading off white foam. Sweet with relatively low complexity given the ingredients list. Medium bodied.

Excellent biere au goût de miel tout juste assez prononcé. Accompagne bien un plat de porc ou de veau. Belle mousse, odeur bien relevée. De loin ma préférée de cette microbrasserie.

Pours a clear red with a small white head that leaves some lacing. Nose is of purple berries, spices, perfume. Taste is moderately bitter and offers some of the same berries along with some bubblegum angles. Pretty perfumey. Body is medium and carbonation moderate. Not your typical american amber ale but still somewhat enjoyable for what it is.

Nice aroma of a mix between copper and honey. Apparence is not hazy and has a unique taste of honey. Very liquid for it’s taste.

jamaty (2183) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 7, 2015
Ambar de escasa espuma, pero buen aroma, licórico y especiado. En boca es bastante dulce (miel), muy malteada, en parte compensada con toques especiados. Bien de cuerpo y alcohol presente sin exagerar. Buena.

cfrancis (3474) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 7, 2015
Thanks to Peter for this. Pours a dirty brown gold with a small off white wisp. Aroma is sweet honey, cinnamon and other spices. Taste is a little muddled, honey, cinnamon, cadamon, other spicy notes and some sweet caramel malt on the bottom.

sfuen03 (362) - Barcelona, SPAIN - MAR 22, 2015
Big, long lasting off-white head, caramel, almost opaque body. Spicy, fruity aroma. Light to medium body, alcohol well integrated. Spicy, bitter taste, little honey. Bitter finish.

HippyHop (659) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 23, 2014
Pour is orangey caramel with a fat frothy cap that sticks around and leaves a bit of lacing. Nose is sweet/fruity/spicy, with honey, raisins, prunes, caramel and spices. Taste-wise it’s sweet but surprisingly light, with a crisp dry finish that leads into spice/pepper and alcohol warmth. Nice carbonation, medium body and the bitter finish make this stuff surprisingly drinkable.

Stoned99 (1577) - St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 16, 2014
500ml bottle shared with wife, thanks D-O. Aroma: Honey, caramel, some dark fruits and spices. App: red-brownish with white head. Taste and Palate: thin body, medium sweetness, average carbonation. Abrupt sweet finish. Overall: Great look, average taste, boring palate, no funk, nothing. An average beer that I won’t buy again but wouldn’t mind drinking instead of commercial beer.
