Bouteille de 341ml au March des Brasseurs. Ambre brunatre avec une mince mousse blanchtre et peu durable malgr que le liquide soit passablement effervescent. Odeur malte/poivre avec notes de levure de pain et de sucre. Ce brevage est annonc comme une bire fume mais, bien que ma langue nait pas la rsolution dun spectrophotomtre, je ny ai dcel aucune trace de fume. Moyennement sucre (caramel) au got avec une lgre amertume, elle traine en longueur sur des notes de levure et de malt. Pas mauvaise, mais pas ce quoi on serait en droit de sattendre dune bire fume.

The foam is nice and stable. The smell very aromatic hard roasted malt and some smoke. The taste is not as complex and rich as you wish. However, it has a good sweetness of the malt and again tasted a slightly smoky flavor. It is soft and round, but not very rich. The aftertaste has only slightly volatile hops.

A beautiful beer! Light Amber color with a healthy white head. Aroma was earthy, apples too. Medium bodied on the tongue, crisp, malt dominated, no big encore here though....just more earthiness, perhaps caramel notes, sort of a strange chalkiness at times near the finish.

Bottle. Amber with off white head. Yeast, fruity sweetness, dark malt and very light smoke. Very surprising.

Perhaps this is hurt by the category, maybe "Specialty Grain" is more appropriate. From one of the most actively effervescent brews I have ever seen comes only the faintest smoked-wood scent. Instead, this tasty refreshment is dominated by aromas of apple, pear, coriander, light spicy white pepper and a light bubblegum and basement mix reminiscent of Belgian fare. The curtain matches the drapes nicely in this dry amber pour with a bubbly ivory cap. There is nothing quite remarkable about this brew but it is a pleasant sipper.

Bouteille de 341ml achete lpicerie. Couleur brune ple avec une lgre mousse blanche. Au nez, il y a de la levure et du pain. Le got est centr sur la levure belge, lgrement pice elle dgage galement un cot lgrement sucr. Le corps est moyen avec une texture huileuse et leffervescance est de faible moyenne. Pour une bire fume, elle nen dgage aucune trace. Il sagit toutefois dun produit intressant disponible dans toute la province.

Bottle 341ml @ Hotel room, Webers, Ann Arbor, MI
Pours hazy deep golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, yeast and subtl hint of smoke. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with a long malty, yeasty and caramel finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

deepeary (405) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 23, 2015
Nose is sweet malt, fruity, apples. Taste is dominated by Belgian yeast, herbal, fruity. Wit-like flavours. Definitely not a smokey beer, but a tasty ale no less.

kathouse (1808) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - MAY 21, 2015
Cloudy light brown with an acceptable off white foam. Lots of Belgian spiciness in the aroma. Body is malts, light caramel, pepper, and allspice. Nice enough but whiskey and significant? I think not.

guil0000 (425) - New Brunswick, CANADA - MAY 9, 2015
Pours a hazy golden color with a small sticky white head. Fruity aroma, mostly tropical fruit with some spices and malt. Theres also the typical unibroue yeast. Oily mouthfeel. Sweet on the palate. Missing something. Not too bad but not their best. No hint of smokiness.
