750 poured into a chalice.
Rich caramel colored body with a white head that dissipates fairly quickly.
Smells of spice and fruit.
The same spicy(clove and pepper) and fruitiness(apple) appear in the taste. There is a touch of sweetness in the brew.
Crisp carbonation and a medium body.
Another great one from the dudes in Canada.

12 oz. Bottle poured into a New Belgium snifter.

A – Pours a pale gold into the glass. A thick, rich, dense one-finger head of tight light khaki bubbles sets up quickly and then slowly disappears from underneath, leaving a ring of foam around the edge of the glass. The beer is a deep apricot orange-brown and quite cloudy, with a thick column of carbonation rising through the center.

S – Dark, rich fruits mix with lightly caramelized malts and alcohol. Figs, fruit bread. Hints of sourness, like a Granny smith apple. Very Belgium nose. As it warms, bready yeast fills the glass, along with hints of rich powdered cocoa.

T – Nicely toasted malts mixed with dark dried fruits like raisins. White pepper and cinnamon spices follow. Traces of noble hops come along behind. Very nicely balanced. As it warms, the clove aspect of a traditional German hefeweizen emerges. The 8% ABV is very well hidden, but leaves a warm spot in the tummy during this tasting before dinner.

M – A tad fizzy at first, but then smooth on the tongue. Well-integrated structure and medium body. Finish is surprisingly dry, with echos of the fruit and spices lingering.

O – Clearly a well-made beer brewed with quality ingredients. Quite delicious. The dark fruits and spices suggest it would pair well with a steak au poivre, peppercorn pate, or spicy cigar. It would also make an enjoyable slow-paced nightcap. A solid winner.

Just a normal bottle, poured into a balloon glass.

A: Dark brown with a thick creamy off-white head. It’s cloudy with a red-orange hue.

S: Its fruity, like apples and pears with a slight spiciness and, maybe, raisins. Malty with brown sugar and cloves. There are some aspects of dry ginger and vanilla too.

T: Nutty and dry. The malt and brown sugar elements from the smell are present with some pronounced dried fruit, oak, and a subtle sourness. Some hops in the finish help to clear up the rich malt.

M: Creamy, smooth, with a medium carbonation.

O: This is a great beer. It's full of flavour but still something that I could see drinking a few of. Less potent than its big brother Trois Pistoles, but perhaps a better beer with dessert or -instead- of desert!
