3.5/5 rDev +4.5%
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

3.7/5 rDev +10.4%
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.

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.

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.

2.35/5 rDev -29.9%
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
D: not very interesting, missing some hops.
