3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Standard looking yellow beer with a nice white head. Fruity and yeasty aroma, sweet malt aroma and some bitterness finish. I think it is quite ok.
Bouteille sous le nom de "Chaudron Ale Québécoise". Nez légèrement malté de grains sucrés, très légèrement fruité (agrumes) avec des traces de légumes bouillis et de houblon herbeux. Plutôt mince en bouche. Goût fruité très légèrement acide (agrumes, traces de fraises) suivi rapidement d’un léger goût malté de grains sucrés avec des notes de pain auquel s’ajoute un gune très légère amertume de houblon hebreux en finale. Arrière-goût court, très légèrement amer de houblon. Metalchopz (3384) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 14, 2011
Originally rated April 2006. Pours a light golden colour with a small white head. Average retention, but decent lace. Above-average carbonation. Sharp malty nose, kind of like malt liquor, but not sweet. Smooth mouthfeel and mild taste. Notes of grain malt and no corn. Slight bitterness in the finish. Metallic undertones. As mentioned above, this is their house beer, so nothing fancy here, but refreshing. pootzboy (1735) - Kitchener, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 16, 2008
Bottle from trade:
Puts a hazed gold ale in the glass with a great frothy cap and great lacing. Lively carbonation.
Aroma is pleasant with fruits and grains and a nice undertone of piney hop.
Slick mouth feel, chewy-honyy-caramel malts in the front turn more complex in the middle; yeasty, fruity, some toastines....longer finish turns a tad sweet.
Certainly not what I expected. This is a strange cat for a commercial craft brew....unique tasting and flavourful. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAY 3, 2008
Bottle.Blonde ale, big fluffy white head, hightly carbonated, spritzy. Slight tart & sourness. Fruity, light caramel malt sweetness. Got a little better as temp rose but not much Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 16, 2008
In short: A micro blonde ale imitating a macro blonde ale
Quevillon (3089) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 13, 2007
How: Bottle 341ml, date unknown but consumed right after purchase.
The look: Clear blonde body with a short-lived white head
In long: Very very light honeyed cereals. A bit citric/acidic but without an associated lemon taste or something, just plain acidity. Light cabbage notes. Aggressive carbonation. Unpleasant acidic finish. Quality-wise this is about on par with the average macro. And they call it the Quebecer Ale. Insulting. I’ll like to insult it back by saying this is faggot beer but that’s not even an insult since it also goes by the alias Pride sold in the Montreal gay village during the Gay Pride week. Shame.
Bouteille de 341 ml. Jaune super claire, moyen collet qui dure. Arome de malte citroné, type commercial. Goût métalique implaisant, un peu d’agrume mais ouf! Cartoonkhaki (1280) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 22, 2007
Had as Pride Ale:
Clean pale gold with white head. Sweet aroma with light hints of fruit more prevalent in the flavour of the beer. light Bitters medim light body. radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 17, 2007
Golden in colour, the fizzy white head was gone before the end of the pour, no lacing. The aroma is quite sweet, some glue, apple juice, herbal hops. The flavour was of apples and peaches, floral, soapy, light grains. Lightly bitter mouthfeel, light body, medium carbonation. Finishes with a mild lingering bitterness, some chalk. Pretty average, nothing wrong but nothing screaming at me to get another bottle.

341ml bottle from <a
href=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/quebec/g target=blank>La Trappe a Fromage in Gatineau, Quebec. No best before date.
Bottle (341ml). As Pride - thanks to turg for the trade. Robust pop on twisting off, poured very bubbly hazy light gold with a huge fizzy-foamy-pillowy white head. Light fruits, plenty of yeast, and an almost tarry caramel malt - pretty surprising in such a pale beer. Taste is also an odd mix of oily candy-sweet light roast malt and yeast & fruit (I agree with JoeMcPhee, very much a strawberry yoghurt taste here) - very sweet, but helped by an extremely lively mouthfeel, pretty solid in body, syrupy, quick off the tongue and no foul aftertaste. I guess it’s an extra-malty Québec belgian blond ale - I would actually be happy to drink this again. I’m shocked at how high my rating is, but there you are .... rsans (125) - Pont-Rouge, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 28, 2006
Bottle 341 ml. (New version now called QA) Golden yellow color with a small foamy white head. Fruity and yeasty aroma. Flavor of fruits but rather bland. Thin body and a bit watery. Some bitterness in the finish. Nothing offensive about this beer but very little to brag about it.
