3.51/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours a cloudy dark gold with a fluffy beige head with decent retention and some lacing.

Hops and malt (really prevalent hop smell) hints of citrus and fresh-baked bread.

Apple, grass and some hops. Not overly complicated but still with a lot going on.

Soft and round. Sweet and crisp up front, warming hoppiness underneath and a sweet, yeasty finish that is neither too lingering nor too abrupt.

Tasty beer. Quite a bit going on flavor-/body-wise I don't mind it, but it is kind of a roller coaster. Honestly it might be a good beer for someone learning to taste because it is sweet then bitter, hoppy then malty. I would prefer a more "unified" flavor but it is good. Good BBQing beer for sure.

500ml bottle poured into a Microbrasserie Lac-St-Jean pint glass.

A : Dark golden color, cloudy, with a great head. Foam stays a long time and leaves a good ring on the glass.
S : Some cereal, fruity also. Good smell, appealing.
T : Light taste, some light malts. I was disappointed because I thought this beer would a have a much stronger taste.
M : Watery, nothing really spectacular
D : Easy drinking. The price is a little bit high though (5.50$) but I can understand that the process of distribution outside their area can be pricey. I will buy other beers from this microbrewery. Just can't wait to go directly to the brewery for a tasting.

Bottle: Poured a hazy dirty blond color ale with a rather large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of nice floral cereal with light sweet undertones. Taste is also dominated by some fresh floral cereal with a nice underlying sweetness and not much hops presence. Body is full with limited filtration and good carbonation. Well done without being overly complex but very quaf

Tasted in november 2008. Bought at Monde des Bières in Quebec.

Appearance: Pale yellow with some nice head. Good looking beer.
Smell: I smell some fruit? don't know which one. Also some yeast that might be responsible for the fruity smell?! Didn't expected that smell. Not bad.
Taste: Mainly malts with some yeast in the background. Fruity taste is not big and I'm having a hard time figuring what it is. Maybe apple...
Mouthfeel:The body is light and thin. This beer is very refreshing I would drink that during summer. Not a winter beer.

Will need to revisit this beer to complete the review.

500 ml brown bottle with a very nice label, 4,89$ a bit expensive for a new brewer-bottler.

A: hazy golden colour, thick light-beige head.
S: somewhat funky grainy odour.
T: special grainy taste, missing something some sweetness
M: round-beer
D: not very interesting, missing some hops.
