Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Since Mexas Ranger didn't exactly light my world on fire, it's up to this stuff to salvage the latest BotM shipment. It pours a clear garnet topped by a finger of relatively short-lived dirty cream-white foam. The nose comprises candied orange peel, mildly-buttery caramel, a spit of booze, and a touch of toast. The taste brings in more of the same, along with a small contingent of dark, tobacco-like greens. The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, a solid sticke alt, nothing really all that special, but an enjoyable, malty little brew.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a hazy brownish amber in color with light amounts of visible carbonation and some deeper red highlights. The beer has a two finger tall dense foamy tan head that slowly reduces to a thick film covering the entire surface of the beer with a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Upfront there are light amounts of toasted malts with a hint of sweetness. Light to moderate amounts of herbal hops towards the finish.

T: Upfront there is a light flavor of toasted caramel and grainy malts with a very light hint of sweetness. That is followed by moderate flavors of herbal and floral hops that contribute a light amount of lingering bitternes.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with slightly heavier than moderate amounts of carbonation. Light amounts of dryness in the finish.

O: Interesting in that this beer is slightly more hoppy than I have come to expect for the altbier style (especially having spent a couple of weeks in Dusseldorf). The flavors are a little more bitter and more complex than others in the style.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: The beer is hazy amber brown in color. It poured with a quarter finger high tan head that died down a bit, leaving a thi head covering the surface, a collar around the edge of the glass, and some lacing on one side.
S: Light aromas of toasted malts and herbal hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and has flavors toasted malts and herbal hops with a light amount of bitterness. Hints of raisins are also noticeable.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is rather bitter for the style but is interesting nonetheless and quite complex to other altbiers.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 375ml. bottle, bottled 06/2012.

Appearance: A hazy copper body with a thick bubbly head that really clings to the glass ans has a gorgeous cascading effect as it's poured.

Smell: Resiny hops a bit with a nutty overtone and some herbs.

Taste: Mix of nuts, caramel, dry leaves and a light earthy bitterness. Raw hops that is not overdone and a tingle of spiciness on the tongue after the sip. Very tasty.

Mouthfeel: Starts out gentle then segues into a low-lying bitterness.

Overall: Really enjoyed this one. Worth your time for sure.

Color copper-orange with a nice foam when poured. Aroma of bread, cereal, and nuts. Hops aromas resin with a little floral. Medium bodied with a good hops attack. Taste cereal, little caramel, toasted malt. Bitter finish. Like all Signature Serie product from Trois Mousquetaires, it's a really good creation.

750mL corked and caged bottle with no freshness date poured into pint glass. Purchased at Marche Cosmopolitan in Montreal's Centre-ville.

Pours a bright, clear amber with red hues. Head is a cream yellow, a bit foamy, and leaves chunks and lacing on the glass as it slowly settles. Good retention. Clarity of the beer shows lots of fine bubbles streaming up the glass.

Toasted caramel, fruit esters, and a bit of lemon and bright floral hops on the nose.

Lots of smooth, toasty malt flavours here; bready, caramel, touch of cereal grain, then some almost dark-fruit esters, giving way to the lemony and earthy hops and a slightly bittersweet finish.

Mouthfeel is light, smooth, and creamy with a nice bit of ebullient, fine carbonation to keep things lively and well away from cloying sweetness.

Overall, I'm really digging this beer. Flavours mesh well together, and find a nice balance. Mid range of complexity, and nothing overdone.

3.9/5  rDev +1.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

I've been eyeing this one up for some time and finally decided to splurge.

A - Pours a hazy copper colour with an amber hue, two solid fingers of big bubbled beige head with solid retention and some sporadic lacing.

S - Metallic caramel, some leafy hops, very earthy.

T - Very unique flavour, strong bitterness off the top that lingers. The hops are very earthy and sour, reminiscent of fresh lime rind. A caramel malt backbone is undermined by the hops.

M - Medium bodied ale that goes down smooth and finishes with a touch of dryness.

O - This beer is bold, and certainly not for the faint of heart. It packs a strong bitter punch and catches you off guard. Certainly more hoppy than I expected, and the bitterness was quite memorable. I'm glad I tried it, but I'm not certain I would run out for another bottle in the near future.
