3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 375 ml. Bought at Peluso (Montreal). Pours clear amber with medium creamy beige head. Some lacing. Lot of bobbles. Aroma: grapefruit, hops, slight caramel. Taste has a very strong earthy bitterness (too much for my taste). Spicy finish. Long aftertaste. Dry finish. More like an IPA than an APA it seems to me. Ok beer, not much more...

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Brouhaha, pours a hazy golden orange with a medium white head. Aroma of light biscuity malt and lightly floral hops - very subtle. Flavour is pretty standard for an APA, with some biscuity malt and slight honied notes. Light-bodied and unobtrusive, but not overly refreshing or pleasant. OK.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2012 Les notes herbacés classique aux interprétations Québécoises de ce style de bière m’agace un peu mais bon...ça semble être la norme. Les agrumes et la mangue sont également présentes mais en support seulement. Une amertume générique vient couvrir le tout. Correct

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(750ml bottle) Purchased at Cook Street Liquor Store in Victoria for around $9. Pours a very large almond-coloured head atop an orange body. Nose is very testy amongst the strong hops. Nice take but far cry from the APA style; usually has higher ABV too. Very enjoyable.

Drank a small bottle of this while barbecuing up some pork and it was pretty good. There isn’t a hell of a lot going on, but no hop bomb either. Just subtle perfume essence at the aftertaste. Decent lacing, pours amber clear. Small bottle from Peluso.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (375 ml). Clear golden/orange with a medium off-white head and some lacing. Aroma of citrus, malt and herbal hops. Taste is earthy with citrus and malt. Sticky herbal bitterness. I don’t like these earthy/herbal APA... I prefer citrus bombs.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I have loved every beer from Les Trois. Pours a bright ruby red orange body with a two finger yellowish head. The nose is sweet and caramelly with a hint of toffee and grainy notes. Odd musty aroma...not awful. Light citrus hop aromas. The flavor has lemon and grapefruit hoppiness, but not too bitter. Sweet and caramel malts. Overall, well balanced and tasty.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours deep orange, slightly hazed with a generous white foamy cap. The nose is simple, but enjoyable. Fresh floral hops and bready malts with apple and cookie dough. The taste is decidedly fresh green hops, nice caramel and bready malts balance the floral bitterness. Finishes bitter, with a long lived lingering aftertaste of hops and bread crust. Simple, but well made and enjoyable.
