Pours an orangey-red body with some white head that quickly dissipates. The scent is quite weak though what is there is comprised mainly of the malted barley constituent. The taste is fairly bitter, with a faint note of dark fruit which finishes somewhat smoothly. Overall an ok beer, not sure I'd spring for it again.

L alchimiste Bock de Joliette Micro Brasserie.

The look of it. Very clear. Orange red color to it. Light carbonation. I love the carbonation to it. Many little bubble going up with 1 finger of head that stays.

The smell of it. A bit disappointed tho. Some hops with a bit of corniness to it.

The taste of it: Orange, very sweet malt. A bit of watery taste on the after taste .
So overall would I recommend it ? For sure ! You can t go wrong with a Micro beer. If yo see it on special you get a good deal and grad your hands on.

On tap at Vices & Versa.

Burnished amber colour, clear, with steady bead. Head is off-white, just a rim. Bit strong-looking, but OK.

Smells malty, sweet. Brown sugar, molasses with a touch of diacetyl. Maybe underattenuated as well. Bit simple, not a lot of nuance to it.

Tastes milky, creamy, lots of toffee with creme Anglaise and orange peel. Quite peppery on the back, kiss of booze and a bit of Grand Marnier.

Fluid, seems a little warm but nice crisp backing up.

Not a bad bock, I guess, but I have had more interesting heavier beers.

A: Looks coppery but yet very clear and transparent. Nice little head for a while. Not much lacing. Looked appetizing.

S: Smelt good. Bready smell to it.

T: Once again very bready/yeasty smell to it. Kind of watery with very upfront sweet malts. Not much bitterness but that's to be expected of the style.

M: Crisp enough. Meduim body and went down pretty smooth. Carbonation was mild and not to thick.

Overall: It was a decent beer. First Bock I've ever sampled. I wasn't super shocked or impressed but it was okay. I gave it a 3.5 because its more flavorful than your average macro but it wasn't really my thing. Might be the style or just the beer itself i dunno. While it was good I probably wouldn't buy it again but I probably will be on the lookout for more bocks to compare this too.
