3.61/5 rDev -1.6%
Pours a hazy goldenrod with two and a half fingers of frothy, pristine white head that settles like a rock at half an inch or so. Very good retention; some light lacing.
Floral bread aromas. Warm dough left to rise, clover, banana, cereal malt smells, some grassy hops.
Bready and rich. Cereals, doughy yeast, soft grain flavors, some dying/medicinal hops at the end.
Medium bodied but quite refreshing and drinkable. Lingering finish with slight aftertaste.
Pretty good beer.
I have never had a Maiboc before but this one was tasty. Pours pretty and has a kind of European nose and taste. I feel like it could have a little more oomph in the taste department, but you can tell it's a well-made lager regardless. Pretty tasty, maybe a good craft beer for hooking the AAL crowd.
Probably would opt for one of their other beers; same if I was looking to try this.

Appearance: It has a beautiful deep and hazy golden/yellow color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down moderately and leaves little lacing.
Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of honey, floral notes, citrus, grassy hops and bready/biscuity malts.
Taste: Like the aromas, it has some sweet honey, a grassy bitterness, citrus, flora hops, bready malts and some faint grains.
Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.
Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas. Wow very refreshing and enjoyable.

Part of my north-of-the-border haul, purchased at La Halte A Malt in the picturesque village of L'Assomption, Quebec. Poured from a 12-ounce bottle into Spaten mug. One word: gorgeous! From the head to the aroma, from the color to the taste, a beautiful beer; three fingers of vibrant white mousse; grainy aroma with hop highlights; medium-plus mouthfeel reveals full-bodied flavor;terrific finish leaves me wanting more; even the bottle is a beauty; this one's worth the 300-mile drive alone.

Slightly hazy gold under a big head that settles to a heavy film, only some lace.
Nose is sweet malt offset by mild hops, some breadiness and a whiff of alcohol. Maybe a little honey.
Rather gentle to drink, subdued hops give lingering bitterness. Generally sweet and bready. Honey and fruit present.
Decent overall, but doesn't stand out from the pack. Manages its alcohol well, most tasty than boozy. Easy drinking.

Medium gold. Two fingers bubbly head and visible carbonation rapidly rising up from the Duvel glass' etching.
Sweet aroma, honey with light grain.
Same sweet taste, honey with light sweet grain. Floral hopping present but less aggressive than I might like. Hot finish.
Despite noticeable alcohol this is actually pretty easy drinking for the strength, though I couldn't do more than a bomber.

Les Trois Mousquetaires Maibock has a tone like an ideal spring afternoon. Its golden colour blisters along the sides and bottom of the glass (though turns up bright and sunny when held up to the light). It comes served with a massive whipped cream topping and hundreds of bubbles that hover and are raised up like tiny flying saucers being sucked into a strong updraft.
The aroma, which frankly smells like little more than lightly toasted white bread, is actually quite rich and pleasurable provided you can appreciate beer solely for its basic fundamentals. This scent of clean pilsner malt is complimented by low melanoidins, a faint whiff of noble hop spice and florals, lemon juice, as well as some considerably impactful alcohol vapors.
This blond lager has the kind of subtle flavour profile that would drive Procter and Gamble nuts - they couldn't resist adding artificial flavours to something this plain and simple. While it's true this doesn't have the stuff to turn heads, its grainy maltiness is so remarkably real, rich and wholesome. It is a lager lover's lager... punched up a notch.
The taste has a distinctively dry, cracker-like maltiness. Though permeated by prominent alcohol notes, a hint of honey flavour, sweet corn and an occasional, very minor pinch of peppery spice serve to sufficiently mellow things out. All in all, the palate is left immersed in airy floral and lemony notes and a grassiness that further dries things out. Very agreeable.
As is typical for the style, Les Trois Mousquetaires Maibock is a beer that leaves out all details save for the most practical. While it offers only the bare essentials, these are not only among the finest quality but also apportioned very generously. It's a good thing this brewer has a penchant for German styles because his beers epitomize those traditions masterfully.

A - Pours a pale golden colour, thumb of light fluffy head with solid retention and nice sporadic lacing.
S - Nice sweet grassy notes, sweet corn, wheat, hints of citrus rind and a hint of apple juice.
T - Much like the nose with the grassy notes dominating, surprising amount of bitter citrus rind, toasted crackers, bready wheat and a the touch of apple juice comes through on the finish.
M - Lighter bodied ale, a tad prickly and a touch of dryness on the finish.
O - A fantastic brew, light and refreshing yet surprisingly bold for the style. Flavours are pronounced and are certainly a great way to ring in the spring. Well worth a try and I will snatch up a few extra bottles before they disappear.
