A copper beer with medium carbonisation, that shown a promising white foamy head that unfortunately dissapeared after saying "hello".

Smell of honey, coriandre and some spices. A core smell is present in this beer, like copper making me wondering why the beer is name Boréale Cuivré (copperized).

Taste sweet, malt, the feeling of water is quite present a bit too much for my own taste. A copper taste is there, very drinkable, not a bad brew

Bottle: Deep amber brew with a medium size head with more or less retention time. Alcohol is not subtle on the nose or on the tongue. The body is medium and this brew would have been better if the body had been stronger to support the higher alcohol taste. Another one in the so-so colum for Boréale.

An above average, Belgian-inspired blonde ale out of Canada. This was served to me @ McLeans, a nice pub in Downtown Montreal. It was a very nice dark blonde-gold colour with a small head that dissipated quickly. It smelled of spices and malts but there was no pronounced hop aroma in this beer. This tasted very good, as an all-malt brew should. This was very spicy and quite complex. The alcoholic strength of this brew was concealed very well and that was also nice. The mouthfeel on this beer was a bit thin and the drinkability was pretty nice.
A good beer indeed!

Now, I know I've mentioned before things like how Fin du Monde and Trois Pistoles do excellent things in disguising their alcoholic strength. Well, maybe I was exaggerating a bit, but this really does do that. A coppery coloured ale with the proper two fingers head, the Cuvee tastes like a pleasantly malty ale of standard strength. (and at this, I don't think I'm putting up much of a front) The taste is smooth, and as I mentioned, malty - there's probably some caramel malt in there. It's not very complex, which is surely another factor in its seeming like a normal type ale. No hops in this one (according to the brand mantra of pure barley malt).
