Part of my north-of-the-border haul, purchased at La Halte A Malt in the picturesque village of L'Assomption, Quebec. Poured from a 12-ounce bottle into Spaten mug. One word: gorgeous! From the head to the aroma, from the color to the taste, a beautiful beer; three fingers of vibrant white mousse; grainy aroma with hop highlights; medium-plus mouthfeel reveals full-bodied flavor;terrific finish leaves me wanting more; even the bottle is a beauty; this one's worth the 300-mile drive alone.

Poured from a 750ml corked/caged bottle into an imperial nonic glass, this beer presents itself as as a highly effervescent barely hazed golden yellow crowned by a mounding fluffy dense foam. Looks great.

Aroma is very sweet and fruity - pears, bananas, peaches. There is also some bread dough, grassy hops, and Belgian yeast.

Flavors back up the aromas - fresh sweet fruits, nice sweet malty foundation, fresh cut grass, candy sugars.

Feel is medium body with plenty of carb.

Glad I had a chance to try a beer from this brewer which I doubt I will see for a long time if ever. Would love to try more.

Bomber picked up at Peluso and split with Viggo.

Bright light golden pour with a couple fingers of white head that left some good lacing as it dropped to a heavy film. Sweet herbal aroma has a string bready background, with a nice spicy and grassy kick to it.

The flavour impresses me despite the beer's low average going into this review. True, it has a significant sweetness, but i feel its nicely balance by peppery, herbal and grassy hopping. I also really dig the bready core of this beer, which makes it a pleasing drink. Its also more substantial than I expected with a chewy body and billowing carbonation, which bulks things up even more.

Another highly drinkable offering from one of Canada's best breweries. I don't hesitate to buy from these guys anymore - I've had about a dozen of their brews and only one has disappointed. They remind me a little of Great Lakes with their take on the German styles...it would be interesting to do some side-by-sides.

From a 750ml bottle.

App: bright yellow straw color, slightly hazy with a thick, creamy, bright white head and leaving some nice lacing around the glass.

Smell: Freshly baked bread, biscuit, cracker, malt sweetness, suddle fruity yeastyness, grass and hay.

Taste: very bready, malty with an herbal and grassy hop finale and residual sweetness from the malt without being cloying at all and remaining somewhat clean and crisp. It is very well balanced. Edit: The last glass really brings out alot of the bananas, cloves and pepper from the yeast settling at the bottom which i wasnt getting as much from the first glass, adding complexity to the beer. Very well done.

Reminiscent of the lager you might have had with your dad back in the day but 10 times better, tastier and more complex. A great example of how good a lager beer can be. It kinda reconciled me with the style. I wish i would see more local craft brewers do good lagers like this. This is a perfect intro beer for people new to craft beer and will please beer connoisseur aswell. I will buy again. Highly recommanded. 8.3/10 (overall) - 9.5/10 (lager)

I bought one 375-ml bottle at a liquor store in Montreal called Le bièrologue. The beer was bottled on July 29, 2015 and it can be held for 12 months according to the microbrewery behind this.

Look: The body has the pale colour of honey and is unfiltered. The beer initially produces a two-finger head, but it dies by the time you smell it.

Smell: The malt is hardly discernible. However, the alcoholic warmth, though not overwhelming, is the most dominant aroma. The sharp notes of hops could also be smelled.

Flavour: Although I would not expect a Maibock to be sweet, this beer has brief notes of honey. True to the style, this beer is more bitter than kellerbiers, helles lagers or any other types of lagers. Despite its high ABV, which checks in at 6.8%, you would barely feel the taste of alcohol. All in all, expect a grainy taste.

Feel: The beer feels warm because of the high ABV. Yet, it is a little juicy and refreshing. The finish is pretty smooth in that the flavour disappears more or less. There is no astringency nor harshness. The aftertaste has a small alcoholic warmth.

Overall: Although there is room for improvement, this beer's flavour and mouthfeel brilliantly walks the fine line between being refreshing and hoppy at the same time.

A - crystal clear straw colour, bubbly, tall white head that dissipated slowly leaving ransom sticky lacing
S - wheat and corn, herbal and buttery with a light fusel-like aroma
T - corn with spicy herbal hop notes, moving to a light buttery popcorn with a definite alcohol sweetness, similar to classic czech pils flavours in many ways
M - light body and good carbonation, slightly dry and bready finish with the alcohol enhancing the feel
D - very impressed, a nice mix of light hop and grain/corn flavours, the alcohol is present but not a distraction, a very drinkable 8%

Veiled deep gold with a very strong amount of activity. Thick light frothy white 3 finger sparkling head that last for around 10 minutes, with a good amount of legs.

Aromas of faint flowers with some caramel and a yeasty feel. Flavors of tropical fruits like pineapples with some estery feel of apples, a nice thick grainy taste and a faint grassy touch. Highly sharp with balanced sweetness.

Smooth oily full body with a perfect amount of zesty carbonation. Light finish of medium length, ending with a malty and yeasty sensation. Lingering grassy noble spices and honey like tongue coat.

Overall great quality craft. Delicious tender flavors yet warming and filling. Nicely balanced, complex, and ultra fresh. Well spiced and perfectly sharp with a pleasant body. The only real flaw is a faint smell. Very satisfying beer, I highly recommended; Would drink this all day long.

Great beer, drink a good beer in barcelona. Balance, just the right quality of alcohol. A great way to share conversation with a good beer.

Moderate, bready, malty aroma. Slightly spicy alcohol and a touch of hot alcohol on the nose. Quite good. A touch fruity. Yum.

Perfectly clear straw colour with a big, fluffy white head. Good head retention. Nice lacing.

Smooth, sweet malt. Neutral finish. Quite fruity but I like it. Spicy alcohols.

Medium body with moderate carbonation. Silky and smooth.

A very tasty beer. Plenty going on and it isn't over the top.

Appearance: It has a beautiful deep and hazy golden/yellow color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down moderately and leaves little lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of honey, floral notes, citrus, grassy hops and bready/biscuity malts.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some sweet honey, a grassy bitterness, citrus, flora hops, bready malts and some faint grains.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas. Wow very refreshing and enjoyable.
