Reddish golden hue Extremely smooth - no aftertaste very refreshing Overall spendid surprise was my reponse to this beer - extremely grand beer for the price. In addition royalties from sales go toward a foundation for threatened animal spiecies.

Bouteille 341ml. De couleur ambrée-orangée et voilée. Nez de levures fruitées (agrumes, notes de mangues et de pêche) et moyennement épicé (coriandre), léger de blé et de pain avec des notes de houblon floral. Moyenne-mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture un peu crémeuse. Goût de levures fruitées (agrumes et zestes, faibles notes de mangues et de pêches) et moyennement épicées (coriandre, traces de poivre) lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi d’un goût de blé très légèrement sûr avec des notes de céréales sucrées et de pain puis en finale l’on retrouve des notes amères de houblon floral avec des notes herbeuses. Post-goût moyen et un peu sec, comportant un léger goût de levures fruitées (zeste d’agrumes) aux notes épicées avec des faibles traces de blé. (2006)

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 Québec". 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 (2543) - 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.

terrybail (704) - London, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2008
330ml bottle from the SAQ as part of a trade for a server cabinet The aroma is strong yeast and wheat nice aroma Pours a hazy reddish amber with a small fast disappearing white head It is too bad it does not taste as good as it smells really pretty tasteless watery and thin on the palate

Bouteille de 341 ml. La bière est de couleur orangée avec une mousse blanche modeste qui reste. Au nez on découvre des arômes de céréales, de coriandre, de pêche, de pain et de blé. En bouche la bière a un corps moyen et nous révèles des flaveurs de caramel au beurre, de pêche, d’ananas, d’orange, de levure et de céréales. La finale est tout en douceur.

Dorwart (2616) - 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.

(Bottle) Pours a hazy amber body with a spare off-white head. Aroma of ginger, wheat, orange zest, and some floral. Flavor of wheat and some orange peel.
