True to the style, the color of this brew is a neutral amber. Clear. Modest head and absolutely no lace.

Most notable is the high yeast aroma. I smell little else.

Fruity esters on the initial taste, yet it is dry. Good balancing bitterness in the finish. If I were blindfolded, I would think that I am drinking a Marzen.

A-Clear reddish-pink amber w/rich off-white head and faint tracing.

S-Strong malt character, faint spice and Belgian yeast, and light esters. Light citrusy hops. Also some sulfur.

T-Lightly toasted sweet malt, sulfur, spicy clove, fruit esters on mid-palate, w/finish of light orange and bitter hops. Aftertaste is spicy w/hint of gunpowder.

M-Light-medium body. Smooth and well-balanced.

D-Sessionable and harmonious...a good drink.

Poured a medium amber hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was decent retention and lacing.

The smell featured the estery house yeast, with some caramel.

The taste consisted of an estery yeast, a moderately sweet malt and a flowery hop.

The mouthfeel was of average fullness for the style.

Overall a run of the mill amber. The esters make it slightly unique however.

Amber copper with a huge thick beige head with great retention and leaving laces.
Light aroma of caramel and hints of prunes, not much more to see it here.
Flavor is better than nose, with malty notes of caramel and a bit of cocoa and grains. Hints of yeast, herbal and perfumy hops, apples, papaya and prunes. Dry aftertaste with a mild bitterness.
Light body with appropriate carbonation.
Its malty profile is nicer than the others, but not as tasty. In my opinion it is a style that if you miss body and spices (and hops if American), it feels a bit boring, but should feel nice to the general crowd. Between their line this is the one that I liked the least, but it should be the second easiest to drink.

On tap at Les 3 Brasseurs in Montréal. Served in a 500ml mug. ABV marked as 6.2% on the menu.

A - Poured a clear amber with a 1cm off white head. Head reduced to a foamy ring. Light lacing.

S - Caramel malts, floral.

T - Caramel, candy, light citrus, bitter hops in the finish, hint of booze. Very much has a Belgium ale flavour to it.

M - Medium carbonation, medium feel, sticky sweetness, light tang, bitter aftertaste.

O - Good beer but nothing amazing.
