Metalchopz (3316) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - APR 4, 2012
Originally rated March 2005. I bought this brew at the SAQ in Hull, near the casino. It pours a hazy orange-brown colour with an average head that did not stay long. It did top the surface with a thin layer for a while though. The scent was yeasty and wheaty, but not too strong. Taste is creamy with hints of tart and spices. Very smooth mouthfeel. Similar too all the other Cheval Blanc beers, not a punch in the face, but always pleasant. This red wheat beer on lees is dedicated to the Copper Redhorse (fish) and royalties from this one goes to the "Fondation de la faune du Qubec". Good cause and great session brew.

341ml bottle. Small fizzy head, no retention. Aroma is spice and bread. Taste is discrete. Malty, wheaty. Not really good. Would not try again. Rating #96

TheJester (2542) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 4, 2009
341 mL bottle. Hazy copper-orange with a short-lived head. Hefeweizen aroma of banana, sweet potatos (!?), some brown spice, and something a little metallic. Just sweet to start with; caramel malt and a touch of wheat. Thin at the end. Metallic, very slightly bitter finish. Quite highly carbonated. Interesting concept, but not much to offer here.

Bouteille de 341 ml. La bire est de couleur orange avec une mousse blanche modeste qui reste. Au nez on dcouvre des armes de crales, de coriandre, de pche, de pain et de bl. En bouche la bire a un corps moyen et nous rvles des flaveurs de caramel au beurre, de pche, dananas, dorange, de levure et de crales. La finale est tout en douceur.

Dorwart (2578) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - APR 7, 2008
Thin soapy head which does not last long. Minimal carbonation. Spicy and fruity aroma with some light malts, orange and corriander. Color is a fiery orange. Crisp and slightly fizzy in the mouth. Grass, more spices and some dry and bitter herbal notes. Maybe even some pepper in there. Finishes dry and a bit bitter. An ok brew. I guess there was some wheat in there. Thanks to etowneraser for this one.
