341 ml bottle. Clear amber color (going to orange). Metallic aroma. Low carbonation. A little bit sour. There is a little bit of preservatives in this beer. unibrouefan (200) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 19, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2006 This is a brown beer. This beer is simple, but the flavor does it all. Good beer and cannot wait until the festival de la bière de montréal to see other product from this brewery. pootzboy (1787) - Kitchener, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 15, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2006 Bottle: put a copper-red lager in the flute with a 1 finger frothy tan cap. Light carbonation. Good lacing. Aroma subdued but you get spices, sweet bread and some herbs. Mouthfeel is slick with a medium body. Flavor is defined by a sweet caramel toffee maltiness and some dried fruit and nut tones from yeast byproducts... then that is equally balanced off with a lush herbal-pine hop mixture. Finish gets slightly bitter with a great bready sweet aftertaste.
I think what the brewer was after here was a genuine traditional Vienna style and he got half way there with the choice of malts and yeast but the hops are too prevelent to make this a true Vienna...and that is too bad because I like this beer for its great malt profile however with the higher hop bittering it comes off more like a light Munich dark than a Vienna. A Vienna should be sweeter in the finish with the hops more attenuated...still a good drink by any standard though.

(341 ml bottle). Nice copper light brown color with a rather long lasting creamy head. Caramel malt in the aroma and also in the flavour. Nicely balance with fair bitterness . Beautiful bitter finish yet sweet. I have had this beer on several occasions and it is getting better all the time.

I sampled this bottle with Eric the other night… we were both a bit taken back by how sweet and malty this beers aroma and flavor was. Brought me a sweet caramel flavor with bold toffee suggestions. Very fruity: plumes, and raisins, pancake syrup… some chewing tobacco. Nutty, hazelnut and walnut a in full effect! Very malty, little hops to be found maybe some slight lemongrass in the finish. Palate was nothing unordinary…. Nice beer!
Bottle... Clear, copper lager with a small, fizzy, white head. Dark fruit, black tea, light molasses and light chocolate are blended perfectly in the nose. The flavor is full of dark fruit, black tea, toffee and orange blossom honey. Medium-bodied and oily with mild carbonation. Finishes bitter-sweet and lightly dry. Thanks goes out to Matta for sharing. GonZoBeeR (3061) - ste-catherine, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 1, 2005

piscator34 (2621) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 30, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2005 Light copper in colour with a medium amount of carbonation. The aromas are mainly caramel malts, with a bit of herbal hops and a lagerish kick on the back end. Flavors are those of caramel and toasted malts with a bit of husky grains creaping in on the finish. Solid and drinkable, but unspectacular. Thanks Lubiere!
