Reviewing this beer after 5 years old notes that was found back!
Bought directly in Charlevoix, one litter swingtop bottle. Unusual for that time, and still is for today in Québec province. Deposit of 5$, makes you think twice for buying more then one...

Served pretty cold in a sniffer. Nice white head topping a cloudy orange liquid. Definitively bottled conditionned and my fealing is that it would have handle long cellaring. Unfortunatly, the swingtop cap prevent from this as my experience tought me that it is dificult to achieve a perfect seal from thos caps.

Mouthfull was good. Nice sharpness. Taste present a difinitive yeast and coriander tone, organic even earthy flavor comes up. Alcohol is well present in mouth and smell.Heads diseapered after a few sip leaving a small lacing.

1 litre blue glass jug thanks to Goldorak. Champagne yeast works to make palatable the spices. sweet aroma. Foamy initial head. Very smooth and the 3 of us got this large serving of 10% down, though it was mostly me. Good carbonation and finishing bite.

1 liter swing-top thick blue glass bottle, quite fancy looking, but asking a 2.50$ deposit...

This pours a very cloudy classy witbier appearance with orange reflects, obviously, at this ABV, there's not much head retention, but what is there at first is dense and surprisingly well-laced. Attracting powerful aroma spread in the room. Very yeasty as most Charlevoix brews with serious orange tones. Very consistant, greatly spiced (coriander, curacao). This is a very impressive take on the tripel style. I must add here that this is actually brewed with Champagne yeast and it's pretty much the deluxe product from this small little brewery that I love.
