Boutip (6269) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 16, 2009
Bottle: Poured a cloudy light beige color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of nice solid malt backbone with light hoppy notes. Taste is very refreshing with some solid malt backbone with notes of floral hops and light citrus finish. Body is fuller then average with good carbonation. Not the most complex beer out there but very well done nonetheless.

Lubiere (13655) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 23, 2008
A hazy golden ale witha super thick egg white head. A very grainy malt aroma, with mineral notes. In mouth, a crisp malt with lots of mineral qualities, light german hops, very lager like. Medium bodied Overall, a decent beer.

Bouteille de 341 ml. La bire se prsente avec une robe cuivre-dore surmonte d’une mousse imposante. Au nez on dcouvre des armes de grain, de fleurs, de raisins secs avec une prsence de houblon floral. En bouche le corps est moyen avec une effervescence moyenne. On goute des saveurs de grain suivit rapidement par une bonne amertume.

MartinT (9765) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 1, 2008
My Bottom Line:
An adorable balance of spicy, leafy hops and homely honeyed cereals resides in this modest and highly convenient quaffer of a Golden Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sticky ring of foam circles the hazy peach golden.
-The malts have that personality intrinsic to the Frontenac maltsters; that farmy, grainy greenness is definitely detectable.
-The finish lengthens the leafy side of the chosen hops and adds some grassiness too.
-A subtle tropical fruitiness can be found in the nosem blending in perfectly with the malt and hop profiles.
-Although its name might have you expect an English style, du Hameaus house yeast is definitely Belgian...
-I get the impression the tap version was a tad better integrated than the bottles.

On tap at Brouhaha.
