Belle Gueule Lager D'hiver (Winter) on this 3rd December 2014 here in Montreal.
The look of it. Orange, yellow color on the light. Low carbonation. Nice head about 1 to 2 fingers.
The smell of it. Malt and hops, typical for a Lager.
The taste of it : Thats a good lager right here. Malt and caramel on this after taste.
So overall would I recommend it ? For a lager, damn sure. As a beer in general, yes on this winter season thats a pretty sweet tasty beer !

Poured from a 12oz bottle, no #freshbeer info.

Pours a light copper, good sized head but retention is average and not much lacing afterward. Aroma and flavor have a nuttiness mixed with dried fruits and a prominent metallic twang. Ok but didn't find it that great.

341 ml bottle.

A- Nice amber colour with coppery tinge. Smallish off-white head. OK bubbles. Attractive overall.

S- Malt and mild hops. Pleasant, but nothing original.

T- Slightly sweet malty lager. Balanced with clean tasting mild hops. Well balanced and pleasant though somewhat unremarkable. Maltier than most lagers.

MF- Fairly crisp lager feel. Less thin than many, which fits the winter lager concept.

D- Easy to drink without being too light. I liked this one.

Almost each time since a few weeks, I drop by the local store, I see this brew. I didn't see so many 6-packs, but mostly 12 packs. Anyway, tonight, I am giving it a try.

Presentation: The usual 341 ml canadian beer bottle

Appearance: An interesting red / dark color with a very respectable head.

Smell: It invites you. A good blend of malts, caramel and hops. The first smell was awesome.

Taste: Good roasted malt and caramel. Not really strong, but refreshing.

Mouthfeel: Maybe a little too weak.

Drinkability: It worthes a try.

This is another seasonnal beer from Brasserie RJ. This is actually a winter lager. Pourred a light colored brew with a medium head. The taste is quite light with a nice sweet aftertaste. I would have expected a stronger brew since this is a winter seasonal beer but overall it is not too bad.
