3.58/5  rDev -8.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a hazy apricot/orange. Slightly offwhite rocky head, with some strong bubbling.

Fleshy, yeasty aromas, floral hop, pale malt & husk. Maybe a hint of sweet corn.

Initially tastes nutty & spicy, with a rich, phenolic character that reminds me of farmhouse ales. But a firm hop backbone and bitterness sets it apart.

More body than the traditional pilsner, yet medium with a light creamy texture.

Not a common style in my country; it sits somewhere between pilsner and farmhouse ale. It's richness might be a challenge for some, but to me it oozes goodness.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: pours a orange color with some yellow highlights. A short 1/2" head breaks apart quickly.

Smell: grass, lemon zest, and some fresh baked bread aroma creates an enjoyable aroma.

Taste: grainy bread, grass, lemon zest, green apples, pears, and a moderate bitterness.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied. Lightly crisp throughout with a light dryness late.

Drinkability: this is a very easy drinking beer. This beer is nicely refreshing and makes the tastebuds happy.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Mostly clear with only a slight haze from the lack of filtration. Golden colour with a nice, creamy off-white head. Good head retention.

Herbal, spicy hop character with just a touch of sweetness and fruit.

Lots of bitterness with a touch of malt character. A bit herbal.

Medium body with moderate carbonation.

A nice and interesting beer on the whole. A little less bitterness would help but it is still good.

First of my LTM 750ml bottle-haul from Drummondville.

Since my only true beer "mug" is a massive Paulaner stein, I instead poured this into a curved Steam Whistle pilsner glass. A deep tawny golden brew, opaque with sediment - looks a great deal like fresh-squeezed white grapefruit juice. A brilliant two-inch high head that has receded into a solid half-inch layer of foam. Scads of patchy lacing. Great retention. Kellers don't need a boat load of lacing, but this looks bloody brilliant, so I upped the markage here.

Nose is quite pleasant: apple, peanut, floral aromatic hops, grain, malt.

Finally: a Canadian zwickel with some chesthair (not literally - that would be gross). Big blast of nutty, grainy goodness with a sharp floral hop tang. Citrus (grapefruit), apple and a nice moderate malty backing. Took a few sips to get my tastebuds in tune, but I'm liking what I've encountered so far. About as flavorful as a 'non-filtered pilsner' as you're going to get.

Thicker-bodied for a lager, which is all kinds of good. Slightly creamy, lovely mild carbonation. Reminds me of a real home brew mouthfeel, which I dig greatly.

After receiving but a taste of what LTM had to offer last summer with their standard mixpack, I couldn't wait to sample more of their brews. I can safely say that their Kellerbier was more than worth the wait. A markedly bitterer and huskier kellerbier than I've experienced before, but this robust flavor was certainly welcome. Terrific work from LTM!

Kellerbier: unfiltred pilsner, as written on the sticker, poured into my favorite pint.

Result a nice looking beer, golden/blond, a little bit cloudy, a nice foamy white head with active carbonation, laces on the glass.

smell very natural to me, cereals, hop, floral/herbal tones..

Taste is good too. Hop is present all the way, but its a very smooth hop taste. Its malty as well, similar to a good english pale ale..

mouthfeel is interesting, its not watery, good texture, it is smooth, with bitterness as after-taste. carbonation is medium and active.

Drinkability is excellent. Flavors are well presented and balanced, however i dont know this style of beer, an old german recipe..so in dont know if its authentic or whatever...

but its very good!

Very funky and complex with none of the usual cleaned up lager profile found in craft pils. The beer pours slightly cloudy with a hoppy funky nose. Takes a few sips to get used to the slightly fruity/yeasty notes that come from being unfiltered. Very unique beer

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Raw, earthy, rich, and unadulturated. Somehow I think this is how real lagers were intended to be.

The pour delivers a murky orangeish/copper color with significant haze. A creamy thin head forms, laces well, and provides great staying power. Very un-lager like in appearance- more like an IPA in appearance.

Aromas are bready and tart. Malty breads/bread crust scent blends with sweet grains and modest caramel. Green apples/crabapples, lemons, and tart berries give an estery glimpse into the less clean aspects of lager beers.

Flavors are dominated by hoppy and estery notes but with the lager smoothness that is expected. Apples, lemons, and under rippened berries provide the estery zest on the light bready-caramel base. Very hoppy with lemongrass, fresh cut grasses, fresh herbs (basil, parsley, and spearment) giving a nearly tea-like flavor. Very complex, this beer shows that lagers can be hoppy- and succeed as such.

Medium weighted (maybe full compared to most lagers), but the beer's bready viscocity and malty weight is lightened by subtle carbonation, tart/lightly astringent hop bitterness, and minty alcohols.

A very delicious lager beer with more pronounced lemony/lemon grass earthiness and unadulturated heaft than usual. It's like drinking beer without training wheels.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

Pours into a pilsner glass a very slightly hazy light orange with 2 fingers of slow-receding and sticky head. Absolutely gorgeous-looking lager.

Smell is less impressive, a subdued German pilsner-malt breadiness, with floral hops and a subtle and very interesting note of exotic citrus or tropical fruit.

Taste-wise the malt takes a back seat to the hops, providing a subtle backdrop of hay and sweet dough to the fresh-cut grass, lemon zest and pepper characteristics the hops impart. Opens and closes bitter, with an almost funky fruity flavor in the finish. Creamy and smooth mouthfeel, dry and refreshing.

Gentle and easy to drink but quite complex, and always interesting. I am about to polish off the 750 (an ideal partner for my lunch of fresh crab and and mayo, btw) and wish I had a lot more. Might be one of the best session beers I can think of.

Bottle courtesy of ZorPrime, 750ml bomber shared with the girlfriend and poured into a tulip and pint glass. Thanks Eric!

Pours a hazy, golden orange with spots of clarity around the edges. About three fingers of sudsy, and dish-soaplike (not in a bad way!) head. Settles nicely, with a shit-ton of webbed lace. Nose is a bouquet of fresh floral hops, fresh cut grass and a nice organic, earthy malt; crisp biscuitiness. Taste dominated by typical german pilsner hops and again, the fresh cut 'grassiness' of this beer shines brightly. Some more lemon zest and a hint of some mint here. Fairly long, dry finish with moderately-high bitterness. Drinkability is nice, I could do this 750 solo. Again, some nice stuff from LTM.

750ml bottle poured partially into a pint glass

Appearance - The beer pours a murky amber colour with a huge frothy and fizzy white head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing. There is also some great lacing and the head lasted for a while.

Smell - The beer has a very fresh and clean smell. Lots of hops, grains, floral and citrus notes.

Taste & Mouth - The beer actually has a good mouth feel, lots of carbonation that suits the beer wonderfully. First and foremost I can taste the hops, it also a refreshing mint like flavour to it that leaves a cooling feeling in your throat. I can also taste a honey sweetness and a peppery spice mix. The beer finishes with a slightly bitter hop aftertaste.

Drink - A great beer that I am happy I tried. I would recommend this beer to others who like a light but hoppy beer - perfect for warm days.

golden straw body color with a bit of haze. little head that fizzled out quickly, no carbonation in the body, but the bottle had plenty of pressure. smells similar to a belgian triple or a belgian amber yeast. hint of alcohol. good malty front end, a bit more than i expected. no traces of alcohol in the front but a little musty yeast flavor, smoth middle, and a hoppy bitter finish. overall a good balance. Mouthfeel is oily and thick.

Poured from a 750mL corked-and-caged bottle into a tulip.

A - Pours a translucent yellow-orange with one finger of sticky white foam that leaves an intricate pattern of lace on the side of the glass.

S - Solid, bready malt character with lemon zest and grassy hop aroma.

T - Great bready malt flavor with a lemony tang and the grassy, floral taste of noble hops. Hop bitterness is moderate and spot on. Really well done.

M - Light body, perky carbonation, yet creamy due to its unfiltered nature.

D - Easy to drink, but with tons of flavor. One of the best lagers I've had in some time. Definitely a beer to seek out.

Bought at an IGA in Ahuntsic. 750ml poured into big pilsner glass. Had breakfast 9 hours ago and now starving so this will sustain me until supper.
A- Cloudy gold topped with a big pile of delicious looking sticky foam. Thick honeycomb lacing. Great retention.

S- Great citrus in the hop profile. A bit like smelling a very ripe white grapefruit. Grain is hard to pickup underneath all the hops but I'm getting some musty but fresh(?!) barley.

T- Still some citrus in the hops but a lot more wood and boiled green which I hadn't found in the smell. The dirty hops work with the beer but I find they get kind of nauseating.

M- Very smooth. Low carbonation offers but a tiny tingle. Can't say this is dry.

D- Good. A pretty heavy tasting lager. So basically very tasty but a bit harsh to drink a whole bunch.

Good beer. I'd drink it again. Fun when you hesitate between a clean euro lager and something busier.

Poured from a corked 750 to a Duvel chalice. Bottle has a different label (tan not green, no signature series indication, but same beer, 5.5 abv, only kellerbier they make), this difference may just be cause Shelton Bros. is now importing it to the states. Picked up at Bottle Barn in Sta. Rosa, great price $7.99 for an imported corked 25 oz. beer, a kellerbier at that (hard to find at all, often pricey).

OK, I'm no beer reviewer but feeling inspired tonight, on with it. Looks good poured into my glass, beautiful rocky head that lingered and laced. Only slight issue on first pour was that the "unfiltered" nature of the beer was not readily apparent. But no worries, I homebrew and never filter and like when my own yeast stays out of the picture until such time as I may choose to bring it forth to my glass. Future pours reveal more of that kellerbier faint cloudiness, not a hefeweizen at all but a welcome light haze.

Smell, nice lager smell with very faint notes of yeast, bit of hops, bit of lager yeast sulfur in a good way I swear. But generally a muted smell. And yes, I searched in vain for a freshness date, hate when I cannot readily find one.

Taste, here's where the yeast and hops really shine, no it is not a super hoppy beer but the hops are much more apparent on the tasting than smelling, mostly bittering hops giving a great dry and lingering finish. More yeast than malt in their with the bittering hops, in a good way, probably why I love kellerbiers above most other lagers. Still a bit of a mystery to me is the age of this beer, I'm really enjoying it but could see this being a few months old, and really that's a testament to the beer I suppose.

Mouthfeel, well carbonated, very well attenuated (no cloying sweetness to speak of) while still balanced between malt and hops and the yeasty goodness.

Drinkability, yes, give me more, a pretty faithful re-creation of a great german/austrian style brewed here in north america, only 5.5% abv which is actually on the strong end for the style.

My first mousquetaires bottling and I'm impressed.

The Kellerbier is only recently coming back into fashion, but was once a very famous variety of beer in Germany. Kellerbier is pretty much an unfiltered and unpasteurized lager brewed with pale malts - it dates all the way back to the middle ages. They show a creamier and less crisp mouthfeel than a pilsner, but also offer up more warm malt sweetness.

Les Trois Mousquetaires is becoming one of my favorite Quebec breweries; their Baltic Porter is among the best porters I've ever had! This Keller is on the other end of the spectrum from the Baltic Porter - it is 5.5% abv, comes in a corked 750ml bottle, and provides creamy smooth lagered goodness. This is not usually the first beer style I will pull out of the fridge, but on the right day and occasion it fits just perfectly. Think about a hot day, but you've been inside the whole time. You want something smooth and refreshing, but don't need the absolute crispness of a pilsner or pale ale. Kellerbier to the rescue!

I opened the Keller up cool around 8C (45F) and poured it into a stemmed Pilsner glass. The beer was dangerously pretty glowing a soft, slightly hazy golden orange in the center, which shined outwards to a rich transparent copper yellow with hints of brown and sun. The head was a magnificent pure white foam 2 inches on top of the beer and was filled with big airy bubbles and dense carbonation. The contrast here was sublime. It was like a silver head glimmering on top a gold plated beer - very awesome.

The nose was very delicate with soft floral aromas of lavender, fresh herbs, cut grass, and whole hops. Malts are not totally devoid here though; gentle biscuit and pale malts shine in through the back and bring a very light caramel and slightly warm toffee along with. There is a touch of citrus here also, but overall the nose is elegant and reminiscent of fresh flowers and blooming whole hops.

This is a smooth and juicy beer - if you are looking for gentle, clean, but creamy and flavorful, this is a delicious treat. All that floral aroma which is so soft on the nose comes in here right away and just washes over your tongue in a balancing act of pale and light caramel malt, and the distinct flavor of fresh bakes bread and biscuits.

While the malt is here, really a round hop bitterness greats you first showing herbal notes of hay field, light citrus zest, and a touch of spice. The bitter is wide and smooth and just powerful enough to clean your palate with ease. Malts to come back though and bring some sweetness that I didn't initially expect. There is honey, banana, peaches and plums all lightly touching my cheeks and finishing with a hint of toast and again biscuit.

The mouthfeel is very silky with medium carbonation, but fine and precise bubbles. This beer melts across your mouth and brings much more flavor than 5.5% suggests. That being said, it is generous, not powerful. This is a Keller, and by definition is soft and juicy, not large and aggressive. The hop freshness at the front and back of the beer makes it very refreshing, and the mellow balance of malts helps it remain purely delicious.

I would keep this beer away from more intense foods like Indian, Mexican or Chinese food - it will just be overwhelmed. But it will work wonders with grilled meats, soft cheeses or fish. I feel like the winter will wash it away, so enjoy it in the sun, and it will treat you right.

Lucky enough to try on tap at the Local Taphouse Moose & Mountie Spectapular.

Pours a pale gold with slight orange tinge, head is white and thin but retains with nice webs of lace around the glass. slight haze with a slow, light bead showing through. Pretty good.

Smell is very fruity at first; lots of apricot, pineapple, citric hops. Very sweet with cakey caramel malt underlying but just loads of fresh tang, a hint of bitterness with a slight funky edge. Really very nice.

Lots of malt on the front palate - cakey and sweet, descends into a fruity mid-palate with hints of mango and orange zest. Bitterness starts early with lemon rind and flax kind of flavour, giving quite a phenolic flavour with a slight barnyard funk. Hops are noticeable, fresh and a bit astringent, but they clean up the palate nicely and don't leave a lingering bitterness. Mouthfeel is pretty thin but a good viscosity as it goes down, leaves with a decent dryness.

Really clean drinking, but lots of complexity to it as well. A great beer to start off a tasting session, but I could sink quite a few of these as well.

On tap at Sydney's Local Taphouse Canadian SpecTapular.

Lovely cloudy golden colour, with a frothy meringue-like head of white foam. Lacing is superb. Some languid bubbling makes it look extra-refined. Awesome.

Quite a fruity nose with hints of spice, a little German banana ester, and perhaps just a twinge of cellar mustiness. Almost Belgian hints to it as well, but with a lager sharpness. It's nice; not as classic as it could be, but very tasty.

But oh yes they have it on the palate. Fresh start, with some light fruit, before a light bitterness enters, mingled beautifully with those classic musty keller phenols. Oh yeah. Clean and crisp and amazingly drinkable.

This is a really great keller and a great beer all up. On the palate, it's spot-on stylistically. It's so fresh and clear - just how a really awesome lager should be, but it has masses of character as well to make it an interesting and enjoyable experience. Amazingly refreshing, and refreshingly tasty. Top drop.

750 ml corked bottle purchased in Montreal.

Pours a lightly hazy golden, quite bright, very thick white head forms and settles down to a thick ring and layer around the glass, drops a lot of lace going down.

Smell is nice, very clean and malty, lots of floral hoppiness, biscuit, caramel, lightly yeasty, some apricot fruitiness, some malty sweetness, real neat.

Taste is similar, big and malty up front for the ABV, caramel, lots of biscuit, a touch of fruitiness, big floral hoppiness, quite perfumey, apricots, biscuit, nice minerally bitterness in the finish.

Mouthfeel is light bodied with medium carbonation. A nice kellerbier, very balanced and drinkable.

Pours a bright hazy copper color with a lasting white head. Aroma of bready malt, lemon, and an earthy mustiness. The taste is lemon, honey, peppery spices, yeast, and floral/grassy hops. Medium bodied, really good creamy mouthfeel. This is my first beer of the style so I had no idea what to expect. A 750mL bottle is a bit difficult to finish off but this is a well-done, interesting beer.

Delicate sweet aroma of concord grapes and honey is quite inviting. Dense off-white head sits atop the hazy golden beer. Delicate flavor is a mix of concord grape and with faint floral/grassy and lemon accents all wrapped up in a mildly bitter finish. Moderately light body with mild carbonation and light flavors make for a very drinkable beer.

I am only 99% sure this is actually the beer I am reviewing. I am sure of the brewery, style, ABV and so I am betting this is indeed the beer so here goes.

I chose this beer mainly for the style as I have found I like it quite a lot, also the bottle was new at the LQ and new beers tend to draw my attention.

My bottle is the 750ml type with cork and cage. The label is brown and yellow and has four guys with raised swords on it.

I opted to use my Fin Du Monde tulip for this tasting. As I pour the beer I note the orangeness, and the huge head. Golden orange, cloudy beer with a generous and fluffy near-tan head that leaves popcorn lacing. Very nice looking beer here.

I read as I poured that the brewer considers this a pilsner... I guess we'll see what that means. Smell is strongly yeasty with notes of orange and cut grasses. Not very pleasant or inviting. It actually reminds me of the old beer smell of frat houses and house parties on the day after. There is some complexity and spice back there but that up front yeastiness is hard to get around.

Taste is strong by comparison to most of this style I have had, bitter and tart but not as refreshing as I would like. There is a taste that makes me think of much higher ABV beers. Some earthy tastes make their way into the palate and remind me that not all things are as good when stronger. I am a bit disappointed at the flavor of this beer. I really liked the subtlety of the style and this one is quite brash.

Mouthfeel is big and the finish is very dry but aftertastes linger unpleasantly.

I was ready to award this very high marks, and maybe someone who knows the style better would, but I am not pleased. Not a drain pour but not the elixir I was hoping for.

Slainte and better luck next time.

Thanks to Viggo for breaking this out at our Canada Day tasting. Served in a tulip glass.

A - Pours with a few fingers of soapy foam that dissipates to a chunky ring and some light haze. Splotchy lace is left on the sides of the class. The body is a hazed golden color that is more orange than yellow.

S - The smell is of lightly toasted grains, zesty, spicy, noble hops, honey, and an otherwise clean lager nose.

T - The taste is more bitter and zesty without as much balancing sweetness - definitely true to style. It's more of a 3.75, but I'll round up to be supportive of both a relatively rare style and of Canadian beers in general.

M - Medium body that is bigger than you expect for a 5.5% brew. Soft carbonation, pretty smooth, and pleasant on the palate.

D - Pretty nice and easy drinking beer. This would make an excellent session brew if you could find it on-tap - stupid Ontario keg laws. At least we're getting Trois Mousquetaires bottles in Chicago now.

750ml corked and caged, brought back from Montreal by a good friend - thanks Bobsy!

Pours a lightly hazed deep gold with a big fluffy two finger off-white head which leaves chunks of lace down the glass.

Floral and grassy hops in the nose, hints of citrus fruits, biscuit and caramel malt, juicy bitterness.

Oh man, this is a tasty beer. Big juicy floral and grassy hop profile with a bracing bitterness - not entirely unlike Victory's Prima Pils but feels fresher (due to it being unfiltered?), lightly spiced, hints of peaches, biscuit and honey, light caramel, citrus zestl. Sharp but not over the top carbonation, slick mouthfeel. Feels much bigger than the stated 5.5%. Perhaps a bit thin in the malt section but anything bigger would hurt the drinkability.

Oh how I wish I was closer to a regular supply of this beer. It could be a regular drinker, easily quaffable, plenty of kick. These guys do a MEAN lager. Compared to Creemore Keller this is 10 times meaner. Damn tasty, big flavor for a session beer.

A: It's a nice yellowish gold color, a bit hazy, very big bubbles but not very big itself with bad retention. Not much lacing though.

S: Very big flowery nose. A nice level of citrus zest. Good caramel malts with good biscuit. Lager yeast along with wheat bread are more in the back. Good smelling beer.

T: More hops than I thought. This might be the beer that has the biggest level of flowery hops I've ever had. Also good level of citrus zest. Very good level of biscuit malts and caramel malts. Wheat bread is there but more hidden than in the smell. Very different and interesting brew.

M: Medium light body with medium high level of carbonation. Fits real well with the feel of the brew.

D: It's easy to drink, it's balanced.
