hellonearth (140) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 13, 2014
Robe jaune clair voil avec un petit col mousseux effervescent. Nez de fruits du vergers et dun brin de poivre. Got de levure belge, dabricot sch, de crales et de miel. On sent un peu lalcool ferreux en fin de bouche, malheureusement. Mais lamertume et les pices clotrent mieux cette russite qubcoise!

Hidden_Pooch (518) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - AUG 7, 2014
Cute little choufflette on the bottle, who hides his alcohol well. Pours a light amber colour with a little head. Aroma is of honey, grapes,and other fruity esters. Tastes of caramel, toffee, dried fruits, and a hint of gum. The body is light, but kind of oily and a sweet aftertaste. Quite quaffable for being a Belgian strong.

BrewGoblin (632) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - AUG 7, 2014
A tasty weirdo from RJB in the place to be. Light orange with a thin white head, smelling strongly of honey, yeast, apricot, grapes and spruce. Delicious tasting brew that conjures flavours of sweet fruitiness, caramel and biscuit. Lightly oily and low carbonated, this sweet finishing brew is very tasty and hides the ol boozeroony quite well.

UPDATED: SEP 10, 2014 Bire jaune soleil, moyennement voile, bonne effervescence, et surmonte dun col blanc mince mais persistant. Armes bien fruits, beaucoup de pche/abricot avec autres fruits du verger (poire, pomme), effluves videntes de levure belge, malt bien mielleux, lger sucre dorge, et note de pain frais et/ou de ptisserie. Parfois certains armes plus herbacs, poivrs, voire mme fums semblent merger du bouquet. Beau nez bien agrable, bien intense, belle complexit. En bouche, ptillement lev sur la langue, breuvage bien mousseux, onctuosit moyenne au palais. Au got, pain frais, ptisserie, malt bien mielleux, lentre en bouche gote presque les crales au miel. On retrouve galement les fruits du verger, mais cest bien plus subtil quau nez. La finale est poivre et lgrement herbace, saveurs auxquelles doit certainement contribuer le houblon qui amne dailleurs une amertume de faible modre. quilibre des diffrentes saveurs intressant, mais leur intgration entre elles laisse un peu dsirer. Bonne intensit en bouche, mais complexit un peu plus faible quau nez. Trs bonne bire nanmoins! Compare la clbre Chouffe de laquelle elle sinspire, je la trouve un peu moins fruit, et davantage dans les sucres et la levure, mais autrement, elle lui ressemble beaucoup.

Tessic (1079) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 18, 2014
This one poured a cloudy light yellow with next to no head. Scents include very light hop, fruit scents and bubblegum. The first swig was almost vegetable beer like. Flavours of hops most prodominant, slight veggie flavour later. Meh?

Interesting , nice spicy taste. Head was gone quickly, wheat but not wheat.Taste was great, found the taste a bit "light", over all good not great. But I would take another, another time. Not sure why it needs to be 8% tastes like much lighter.

dandeman (888) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 30, 2013
valuation no. 67 Fvrier 2011. Nez dagrumes, de banane, de fruits confits et de poivre. De couleur blonde, brouille, avec une mousse peu persistante. En bouche, on sent bien les agrumes en attaque. La cannelle prends le dessus par la suite. En finale, on note lapparition dun caramel fin. Cette bire est trs rafraichissante et plus prs des blanches que des blondes. Elle offre un bon quilibre alcool / saveurs. Et une complexit certaine.
