From a 750 ml. brown bottle with no bottled/freshness date, but has 11-12 on the cork, with a blurb and serving instructions on the back label, sampled at cellar temperature in a chalice. I would like to know the vintage of this. Made a good appearance, poured a hazy golden orange with foamy white head that settled into a thin lacing, good carbonation. Had a nose of clove spiciness and orangy tropical fruits, touches of a wheat maltiness with faint whiffs of alcohol. A really nice light bodied mouthfeel, the right amount of carbonation, lightly crisp and smooth, very good drinkability. Clove spicy and orangy tropical fruity taste, a light nuttiness, dry yeastiness, the alcohol provides a nice warmth in the palate, but otherwise is well masked, a little herbalness and a dry fruity and yeasty finish. This is a tasty and balanced brew, another great ale from Brasserie De Saint-Sylvestre.

Version 2006. Couleur ambrée claire, très beau collet. Arome de levure légé, un peu fruité. Goût de levure pas trop prononcé, un peu d’houblon acid. Pas mal.

Huge frothy head on a hazy golden body. Aroma was yeasty with some green apple and citrus. Very bubbly body, fresh and yeasty with some citric hops for a pleasant balance. Slightly sweet finish. Very drinkable and easy to enjoy. Not sure why it’s a winter beer?

Robe blonde aux reflets cuivrés surmontée d’une mousse blanche épaisse en dentelle qui persiste. Arômes légers de houblon et de métal. Saveurs de céréales, de sucre caramélisé et de houblon amérisant.

Lubiere (13911) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 15, 2006
2006 version. Golden coloured beer with an verflowing thick white head, lacing. Light crisp malts with herbal grassy notes. Light sweet malt in mouth, with biscuity notes, good hopping, medium bodied. A decent garde, but not as good as Gavroche. Bought at Joanette.

rederic (3337) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 5, 2006
Tasted under the name "Bière Nouvelle" 2006, bright yellow honey color, with a frothy white head, sort of barley malt nose, grainy, with a faint toffeeish note, kind of a corny accent, and a wet straw and honeyish aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate, with a crisp floral hops character, sweet pale malt, hay note, with an alcoholic strength at 8% well hidden, leading towards a delicate flowery hop bitterness.
