Bottle: Poured a clear medium amber color ale with a average foamy head with OK retention. Aroma of dry grainy malt is OK at best and not that enticing. Taste is dominated by dry malt notes with unrefined grain and no notes of caramel which would have suited the style. Body is average as well as carbonation. This one would fall below average for style.

Amber beer with a head formed of big bubbles. Aroma is thin and light. Light malts notes and a little bit floral. Taste wise, it is malty with a light bitterness at the end. Balanced. Medium body. Carbonation is high in the mouth. This is a session beer. Not bad.

La Bonne Aventure, an amber ale whose malt profile shines through like none else. Rarely have I tasted a beer that really showcases the flavours of malt this well. This is a good beer to have on hand to help develop sensory skills as you can really get the roasty, caramel malt flavours in the aroma and taste.

I scored the beer lower on mouthfeel because the full malt dose in this beer can get a bit heavy but don't get me wrong this was not enough to stop me from having a second one.

I had this beer during a visit to Percé at the breweries pub in town. The beer was as fresh as it gets and really allowed the flavors to shine.

From a 500 ml bottle into a nonic pint glass.

Bonne Aventure is a decent session ale. It pours a nice red copper color with a full foamy three finger head that breaks down quickly. The smell is fruity, with a touch of hops. The taste has an unexpected sour or bitterness, and there is little carbonation present. The beer is slick and the finish lingers. I have liked the products from Pit Caribou before, but I am not sure I will revisit this one.

Nice amber/red color but almost no head and no carbonation. Smells really weird. I can't say what it smells like but it doesn't smell like beer at all. The taste is really dry, almost no caramel taste like I'm used to with the style. I almost wonder if I got a bad beer or it's really the taste of the beer. Either way, pretty disappointed with this one I'm a big red ale fan but this is really underwhelming. An overall of 3 is almost too much.

Deep veiled dark amber/copper color with subtle visible activity. Beige 1 finger head lasting around 3 minutes with average legs.

Aromas and flavors of grains, citrus, caramel, fruits, nuts, herbal spices. Well intensified flavors, more of a sweet taste still with some nice hops sharpness. Undertones of roasted nuts with an earthy and grassy feel.

Chalky creamy medium body with moderate carbonation. Smooth balanced finish ending with a pleasantly spicy fruity orange/lemon feel.

Overall : Good craft; refreshing, accessible, balanced, flavorful and not too heavy on the spices.
