Lubiere (13655) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 10, 2009
A hazy golden ale with a thick creamy white head. A pleasant and fragrant spiced malt aroma, light citrus, perfumey. In mouth, a nice herbaceous and hoppy ale, with a bit of incense notes. Nice and refreshing. Medium bodied. On tap at brewpub August 3 2009.

Enjoyed on-tap at the brewpub. 48 IBU. Amber with lace and a small head. Like a mild IPA, a good bitterness and tasty drinkable. Grapefruit in aroma.

MartinT (9765) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 31, 2011
My Bottom Line:
Spicy rye flavors merge into herbal hops, as light caramel slowly washes over this silky Rye Amber Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam laces atop the cloudy amber.
-The flavor profile is harmonious, balanced, not too tame, not too intense.
-The spicy hop bitterness lingers nicely.
-The residual sugars produce a velvety feel; this could be drier for my tastes in quaffers, but this is still nicely drinkable.

On tap at the brewpub.

mabel (9155) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2007
[520-20070811] Tap @ Cheval Blanc (Montral, QC). Wheat aroma with muted sweet fruit and a hint of nutmeg or other spice. Clear, pale yellow orange body with a medium-lasting creamy white head. Mostly muted wheat flavour with a strange background leafy bitterness. Light-medium body. Fairly uninteresting.

Clear amber body with a small beige head. Good lacings. Body is a bit thin. Crunchy grainy malts. The rye character isnt prevalent although the malt profile does feel a bit crisper than usual. Roasted but not very caramelized, the sweetness actually feels more like earthy brown sugar. Tree barks and woody flavours abound. Generously hopped. Part of the hopping reminds me of their over-the-top India Rouge but this time it is mellowed out with some grassier aromatic hops. Long bitter finish. Certainly felt more bitter than the advertised mere 48IBU. A medium astringency adds to the drinkability. Give it a fuller body and we have ourselves a top notch beer. Nice addition to the Cheval Blanc lineup. Yet another beer to help with my thirst problem but worsen my drinking problem.

SlovakSniper (5514) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 13, 2010
Le liquide est dor et voil. Prsence dun anneau de mousse avec une dentelle. Les armes qui proviennent des houblons me font penser un mlange dagrumes sucrs. Prsence en arrire-plan du seigle (est-ce ce lger parfum pic?) avec des notes de malt grill. Au got, principalement les mmes caractristiques avec une belle attaque de lamertume qui cherche persister. En bouche, par contre, un peu trop mince de corps et de texture. La finale est bonne avec des notes amres et franches provenant des houblons.

rodenbach99 (4547) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 31, 2012
Verre de dgustation sur place. Surprenante bire brune trouble avec peu de mousse. Le nez est discret et le chocolat est bien prsent (surprenant, 2 fois dans le mme texte). La bouche est ronde et chocolate. Le gaz carbonique est bien prsent. Millsime 2012 serait-il moins bon que les annes prcdentes ?

Pours a cloudy golden color with a thin white head. Good aroma of rye with citrusy, piney hops. Good flavor of rye with citrusy, piney hops and a bitter finish. The body is light to medium with a creamy texture and soft carbonation.

rederic (3335) - montral, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 14, 2012
On cask, muddy amber hue, with a frothy white head, light floral leafy, grassy, piney, faint minty hoppy nose, with a light peachy, orange yeasty esters, and with some faint rye cerealic, bready, caramel maltiness accents in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty fruity, nice flowery leafy, grassy, minty, kind of tropical fruit hoppiness character, with a light crunchy rye cereal, bready, toasted malt. candyish orange peel backbone, leading towards fruity, lingering leafy, grassy hop bitterness finish.
