Belgh Brasse Mons Abbey Blonde
Got from a batch of Quebec beers brought to me by friend. Pours a hazy golden color, decent long last head. Aroma of bread with a decent spicy taste, some frutiness and pepper, a smooth good carbonation on the palate with a slight spicy finish. Not too bad.

Barely and hops, quite malty, caramel, grass. Low bitterness, musty grains, boring, and under hopped.

La Bittt à Tibi Amos Pale Ale
Bottle. Slightly hazy orange body, medium beige head with decent retention and some lacing. Aroma of grains, bread, cooked vegetables, stalled water and some pepper. Taste of caramel, malt, shy herbal bitterness and some coriander. Uninspiring.

Bottle. Clear pale yellow body, medium white head with minimal retention and no lacing. Aroma of grains, corn, wet cardboard, sugary malts and hints of herbs. Taste of grains, sugar, corn and some mineral notes. Bad.

Belgh Brasse Mons Abbey Dubbel
My Bottom Line:
This sweetish Dubbel aligns raisins and caramel under coriander and licorice for a rich, desserty example of the style.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam quickly recedes to a ring atop the deep brown haze.
-Mouthfeel is sugary and prickly.
-Flavor profile also evokes vanilla and sasparilla.
-Drinkability is lower than the usual Dubbel’s.
-Alcohol is well hidden.

Bottle.

Belgh Brasse Mons Abbey Quadrupel
My Bottom Line:
Toasted cereals and subtle oranges lead to alcohol warmth and maple-like caramelized lengths in this clean Belgian-style Strong Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam covers the misty pale amber.
-Herbal hop bitterness sneaks up on the residual sugars slowly but surely.
-While I like the toasted malt character, malts should be deeper in this style (in my tastes).
-For something labelled ‘Quadrupel’, you expect more luxury and more complexity. This is not poorly made at all. It is just overly simple and lacks comfort.

La Bittt à Tibi Amos Kristall Witte
Le liquide est doré, mince et impeccablement filtré ; la texture est la même que leur lager. Le nez rappelle inévitablement la levure "banane-gomme-balloune" allemande des bières de blé. En bouche, elle garde au moins sa promesse de goûter comme elle avait annoncé qu’elle goûterait: notes de bananes, côté soyeux, petite touche acidulée en finale, un peu de gomme à mâcher. Ceci dit, elle est aqueuse, convenue, et un peu âcre en toute fin de bouche. Correcte, accessible, ennuyeuse.

La Bittt à Tibi Amos Lager Blonde
C’est jaune doré, peu mousseux et peu odorant. Très mince et limpide. Bouche de malts légèrement moisis, pas de houblons discernables, sucre résiduel agaçant. Une autre bière dont le Québec n’avait pas besoin, et qui en plus n’accote même pas les concoctions industrielles nord-américaines moyennes. Mauvais et inutile.

La Bittt à Tibi Amos Kristall Witte
pours almost clear very pale yellow with a nice white head offering some retention and lacing. peppery bananas, lots of fragrant herbs, spicy ginger snaps, crackery wheat, some odd caramelized notes, estery and yet not out-of-control weizen yeast, cardboard traces. fizzy to bright carbonation, light body, semi-sweet chalky-peppery-herbal-citrusy finish. easily the best in this series - their pale ale and blond lager might as well burn.

La Bittt à Tibi Amos Pale Ale
pours clear light gold with a small white cap offering minimal retention and lacing. spicy, piney and minty C hops, lightly toasted caramelized maltiness, caramel, diacetyl, awkward herbs/plants like coriander, soap, fruity (off) yeast action, minerals, pepper. almost fizzy carbonation, light body - oily; semi-sweet and yet assertive if not unbalanced spicy-piney-citrusy medium long (lingering) finish. off-flavors plenty and under-attenuated - which makes this pale ale particularly poor.

La Bittt à Tibi Amos Lager Blonde
pours crystal clear light gold with a small white cap offering minimal retention and lacing, disappearing in fact. lightly caramelized golden honeyed maltiness, disturbing sweetness and diacetyl presence, apples, not quite green ones and yet no particular lagering effect either, some chalky spicy C hop, fairly anonymous though, herbs. soft yet spritzy carbonation, light body - some oiliness; semi-sweet buttery-herbal-spicy finish. poor lager, akin to other large public under-attenuated "lagers" - obviously a fail. would take some macro offerings over this one.

La Bittt à Tibi Amos Pale Ale
Bouteille - 330ml. Robe ambrée, limpide et coiffée d’un épais col blanc cassé qui s’étiole rapidement. Arôme malté/houblonné agrémenté de nuances sucrées et de maïs. En bouche, les saveurs houblonnées et sucrées se partagent la vedette sans grand panache. On décèle aussi quelques notes boisées. Finale sucrée/boisée correcte. La moins pire de la série "La Bittt à Tibi" qui, sachant ce dont ce brasseur est capable, m’a laissé sur mon appétit.

Bouteille - 330ml. Robe blonde, limpide, pétillante et coiffée d’un mince col blanc. Arôme malté/houblonné bien équilibré et agrémenté de nuances de banane, de levure et de biscuit. En bouche, la base maltée/houblonnée est enrichie de pointes de grain. Finale amère/boisée correcte. Simple, mais pas mauvais.

Bouteille - 330ml. Robe dorée, limpide, moyennement effervescente et coiffée d’un col blanc mince et fugace. Arôme malté/houblonné agrémenté de nuances de grain et de maïs. En bouche, les saveurs de céréales dominent légèrement. On décèle quelques timides pointes houblonnées et de pain. Brève finale amère/sucrée. C’est mince, simple, mais tout de même meilleur qu’une macro-lager.

Belgh Brasse Mons Abbey Dubbel
Bottle. Reddish brown in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of dried pit fruit, rose wine, black licorice, and sweet malts. Flavors are of sweet dark caramel malts, light anise-like spice, and cooked apple. Lighter bodied than expected, with a bit of a chalky note on the back end to balance out the sweet and the fruity notes. Decent for the style, but lacking in intensity.

Belgh Brasse Mons Abbey Quadrupel
750ml bottle. Pours a gorgeous deep, clear copper-amber, light-to-medium carbonation, pale foamy tan head with some retention and lacing. Beauty. Fruity nose, some raisin, light tropical citrus, Belgian yeast noticing apple as well. Slightly sweet (brown-sugar?) flavour-wise, with no sign of the anticipated booziness. Unlike any sort of quad I’ve had; kinda muted, milquetoast. Ok for a once-in-a-while.

Belgh Brasse Mons Abbey Dubbel
Bottle. Dark brown, nearly black pour with a reddish hue, tan head. Aroma is dark fruits, Belgian yeast and spices, licorice, citrus, anise, plum, raisin, lots going on. Taste is a little sweet up front, the same dark fruit and spices, very flavourful but lighter body than expected for the ABV. Tastes more like a Belgian strong dark ale than a dubbel, but tasty.

Bottle 750 ml , cork from the BS
Aroma: rather quiet sweet, plenty of sugars mushed with aroma of Belgian yeast.
Look: lighter density top, shorter life span that was reduced to fuzz in few minutes. No lace. Base was almost clear , fine haze of dark gold, hinted with amber.
Body and palate: medium bodied, heavier mid, thinner walls. Average finish. Average plus carbonation.
Taste: sweet but not as cloying as in aroma. Notes of green bitters, hint of alcohol. Shallower that frisky finish, Hint of fusel fuel.
Post Scriptum: this ale would greatly benefit from longer maturation period.

Veiled copper color with storming activity. Creamy and frothy light brown 3-4 finger head, lasting around 10-15 minutes, with moderate lacing. Flavors of berries, apples, red licorice, cherries, nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon, Belgian yeast, sweet grains and herbal spices. Sweet and candy like, but not too syrupy, with a balanced dash of bitter spices. Slick light body with crispy carbonation, almost champagne like. Medium strength finish of lingering fruity esters, fresh yeast, and red ale spices. Nicely intensified, good freshness. Pleasant faint cheese aroma. Very tasty and a satisfying feel, although a bit on the thin side. Overall very good quality craft.

Bottle poured into Orval glass. Brown body, off-white head, not much lacing. Sweet aroma of plums, yeast, dried fruit and a hint of glue. Taste is sweet cola, and fruit, with a hint of anise, but pretty subdued. Palate could be more lively. Over all this was okay, but I felt it’s over-rated unfortunately.

Ne comprends jamais la sévérité snobinarde qui peut faire paraître un chef-d’oeuvre pour une petite bière de rien du tout, et me demande si les gens qui critique prenne le prix en compte pour relativiser la note. Ici, avec cette superbe Dubbel de 750ml pour 6 petit dollars, nous avons droit a une maîtrise du style sans prétention et toute en finesse, une double d’abbaye très légère pour sa teneur en alcool et facile a boire, qui n’a quasiment pas d’amertume et est coiffé d’une belle mousse et d’une carbonation moyenne mais présente (dans le bon verre). La palette se dévoile en couches, plus on en bois plus on découvre des notes de dattes, pruneau, cassonade, cacao, cajou, licorice, vanille, caramelle écossais, rhum brun, cerise noir (et non dr peper!!) etc. Belgh Brasseur est un maître du style belge et sa maîtrise atteint ici son paroxysme, a mon humble avis il s’agit de la meilleur Abbaye Brune a petit prix et je remercie Jean-Louis Marcoux de ne pas tombé dans le marché de luxe qui pète de la broue plus haut que leur cul! Aimer la bière c’est aimer en boire encore et encore et c’est d’autant plus apprécier a un prix honnête! Celle ci est de loin ma préférée de sa famille d’excellente bières. Vive la Belgique au Québec!

Belgh Brasse Mons Abbey Dubbel
Brun/noir avec un petit collet de mousse crémeuse. Arômes poivrées de réglisse noire et de léger caramel. Corps semi-puissant de dattes, mélasse et épices. Un peu surette, plutôt sucrée. Des goûts puissants, mais rien d’excessif. Intéressante, mais un peu lassante. Et une finale marquée par le sucre et une impression alcoolisée un peu chaude en gorge.

330ml bottle no date. Pour dark brown with some red notes. Tall dense off white foam that vanish fast and stay as a ring. Aroma of raisin juice and notes of toffee. Taste is on the malt side, Belgian yeast. A classic Dubbel but not as enjoyable as others. Medium carbonation and sweetness for the style. Long malty finish with some alcohol warmness. L’Amoszuz Double version. No foam at all. Aroma is more on the malt side. Taste is more metallic and watery, no fun here. Palate is light, low carbonation near flat. Abrupt finish. 5-2-4-2-8 2.1

330ml bottle no date. Pour golden lightly hazy. Small dense white foam that stick to the glass. Aroma of classic Belgian yeast, notes of white bread. Taste is a bit metallic and make me think of a commercial beer. I don’t feel any complexity in this brew. Medium carbonation, a bit dry. Finish is a bit bitter. I have the L’Amoszus version at the same time. Same bottle size. Same pouring but a thing bit more dark, same foam. Aroma is more on the pale ale side. The yeast taste is a bit more present in this one, the metallic taste is not as intense, it’s a bit more balance. Same palate. The finish is more enjoyable, the drinkability is higher and more refreshing. 6-4-7-4-14 3.5

330ml bottle mo date. Pour pale yellow wit a none lasting white head. Aroma of weak Belgian yeast with notes of spice like cloves. Taste is pretty boring, shy yeast and fade cloves. Medium body and medium carbonation for the style. Short finish of fermentation and ethanol. Once that is past, a taste of cheap Lager stay. I tasted the L’Amoszus Blanche at the same time. It looks the same but smell more skunky, the foam last longer and stay on the rim. The taste is heavier on the yeast side, no cloves here, a bit more coriander. Palate is the same, a bit more carbonation and the finish feel less cheap. I’m tending to same that it’s not the same brew. 5-4-7-3-15 for this one.

Pours a golden yellow color with a quickly disapearing white head. Nose of coriander, lemon and orange peel, banana, cloves. It all kind of mixes in well all together. Medium carbonation, medium body. Mouthfeel is a bit dull, kind of flat a bit astrigent. Small hop finish. Not bad but the body the look and the mouthfeel are kind of weak.

Je suis à mon épicerie où il n’y a pratiquement rien au niveau "bière", et je tombe sur quelques Mons... Ok, ça fait longtemps que j’en ai pas bue, alors je me laisse tenter. J’ouvre une bouteille de leur Blonde en premier. Hiiissshhhh, pas terrible ce truc. Ça goûte la viande fûmée. Il y a clairement des notes de fumée et j’avoue que ça se marie assez mal avec une telle bière autrement assez claire. L’alcool est bien caché, mais ce sera un des seuls points positifs que je vais trouver. En me forçant, je dirai aussi que le corps est correct. Très certainement ma dernière bouteille à vie de cette bière. Je suis tombé sur une mauvaise bouteille?

Veiled dark amber, almost copper color, with good dose of activity. Slightly creamy light brown 1 finger head that last for 5 minutes, with a decent amount of legs. Aromas of corn syrup, faint nutmeg and ginger. Flavors of ginger bread, ester fruits like apples and pears, caramel, faint molasses, roasted grains, floral and herbal spices. Biscuity, grassy, and malty, with pleasant spices. Slick smooth full body with extra prickly carbonation. Medium strength finish, ending with a cookie feel, pleasant syrupy feel, and lingering nutmeg/ginger/peppercorn spices. Highly sugary but balanced with strong sharpness. Overall very well crafted. Great flavors and good freshness. Well spiced and not excessive. Good balance and nice complexity. The smell is really faint. Satisfying body yet a little too much carbonation.

Opaque dark brown, almost black color with a copper hue, and strong glass clinging activity. Light brown 4 fingers island head explosion, extra frothy with sparks, lasts around 15-20 minutes, with strong leggings. Aromas of ginger, floral, molassy, and dark fruits. Flavors of syrupy molasses, dark fruits, ester fruits, spicy peppercorn, herbal and floral spices. Ginger bread feel. Slick medium body with prickly carbonation. Strong and long finish, ending with an overly spicy feel, thick syrupy sugary feel, leathery and molassy tongue coat. Overall average quality craft. OK flavors that are unbalanced and way too spicy and sugary. Too intense and doesn’t feel very fresh. Still good accessibility with low perception of alcohol. Originally L’Amoszus Double with a score of 4.2 (8+4+8+5+17) Almost opaque dark brown, almost black color with a copper hue, and powerful activity. Explosive extra frothy light brown 4 finger sparkly island head, lasting around 15 to 20 minutes, with some very good legs. Flavors of ester fruits including dark berries and apples, grapes, plums, cherries, toffee, molasses, yeasty caramel, floral and herbal spices. Highly sugary and yeasty with a nice sharpness. Smooth almost creamy full body with a sharp perfectly balanced amount of carbonation. Medium strength finish with some ginger spices, a thick sugary molassy feel, and faint herbal bitterness. Overall an excellent quality craft. Great complex flavors, very fruity and pleasant. Well intensified with a strong warming feel yet low perception of alcohol. Very good freshness for a dubbel. Excellent appetizer and highly accessible.

Strong sweetness with a faint dash of citrus sharpness. Bready with noble spice grassiness. Smooth full body with champagne like carbonation. Light to medium finish of moderate length, ending with a fruity citrus feel, a little hoppy grassiness, and a faint vinous yeasty feel. Overall excellent quality craft. Delicious balanced flavors with a strong fresh feel. Great body and well intensified. Quite accessible with a hidden alcohol feel. L’amoszus blonde 04/30/2016 : Hazy golden color with storming activity. Extra foamy and frothy beige 4 finger sparkling island head, lasting around 20 minutes, with good legs. Flavors of pears, apples, orange, banana yeast, lemon, honey, sweet grains, coriander, clove, noble hops. Highly sugary and syrupy, with low sharpness. Nice bread and fruity feel, almost like a Tripel. Oily medium body with moderate carbonation. Medium strength finish, lingering yeast and saaz hops, with a bit of ester and tropical fruits. Too much sugars, not enough sharp, this tones down freshness and enjoyability. The flavors are pretty good, but it feels flat and heavy, not enough fluffiness, although well intensifed. Overall good quality craft. 3.7

Belgh Brasse Mons Abbey Dubbel
Appearance: clear cola red/brown with a short loose light beige head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, no lacing. (3/5) Aroma: dark fruit, molasses and brown sugar, liquorice, citrus and spices. (7/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate-low bitter, light tart. (7/10) Medium-full body, moderate carbonation, off-dry slightly sticky and spicy warming finish. (4/5) Aromas of raisins and figs heavily sweetened with brown sugar, and the taste follows, but it’s not so sweet as to become sickly. The moderate sustained carbonation probably helps there, and although it finishes a little sticky, it never becomes mouth-coating or cloying. Spicy and citrus flavours come through mostly in the finish, which is also the only indication of the fairly high ABV. Not the greatest Abbey Dubbel I’ve had, but definitely solid - and hard, if not impossible, to beat for the very reasonable price. (14/20)

Belgh Brasse Mons Abbey Quadrupel
Pours a clean amber colour with a foamy light yellow-beige coloured head, good retention and some foam lace. Many fruits in the aromas with some warming alcohol. Raisins, oranges, spices and hints of licorice. The alcohol is better hidden in the mouthfeel with some normal wetness. Light hoppy finish with some bitterness and dryness. Again, taste of fruits and chemical notes. Alright to finish, but not a Belgian Quadrupel in any means.

(7/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, mild bitter, light tart. (7/10) Light body, lively carbonation, off-dry slightly sticky and mildly warming finish. (3/5) Reasonably authentic Belgian-syle ale, with lots of yeast-derived character. The apple note is almost but not quite brown apple, and the flavours linger in a not entirely desirable fashion, but overall it’s a fairly decent example of the style. (14/20)

Belgh Brasse Mons Abbey Quadrupel
Bottle (750 ml), shared. Clear copper with a medium off-white head, moderate retention, leaving little lacing. Aroma is of dark fruits, raisins, figs, dates, plums, moderate spiciness, boozy notes and liquorice. Taste is moderately sweet with dark fruits, a bit too much alcohol, moderate to medium spiciness (not overpowering), liquorice and herbal notes. Medium to full body. Medium carbonation, borderline too high for the style. Dark fruits and alcohol heat. A good take on a quad but there’s too much alcohol and liquorice to be among the best of the style. Average to good.
