Notes: Barley Wine houblonné au Warrior, Simcoe et Ahtanum. Un goût caramel aux effluves d’alcool. L’amertume élevée de cette bière est balancée et atténuée par son sucre résiduel.

Dark copper color with some decent activity. Foamy, almost creamy, beige 3 finger head, lasting around 15-20 minutes, with strong legs.

Aromas of sweet fresh fruity citrus and floral hops. Flavors of citrus, orange, tropical fruits, banana, grapes, dark berries, honey, herbal and floral spices. Wheaty, grassy, and slightly vinous. Slightly more sugary but still having a fresh sharp feel.

Slick light body with perfect fizzy carbonation. Medium intensity finish, well intensified, ending with an fruity estery and slightly bitter spicy IPA style hops.

Overall it was a very good beer, although mostly resembling an IPA and not really feeling like a barleywine. Nice freshness, still warming, and packed with delicious fruity flavors. Decent balance and well intensified.

Bottle: Poured a deep copper color ale with a large off-white foamy head with good retention and some light lacing notes. Aroma of citrusy, fruity and bitter hops with a solid backbone of caramel malt is quite enticing. Taste is also dominated by citrusy and fruity hops with some bitter notes that are offset by a semi-sweet caramel malt backbone with some light toffee notes. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. I prefer English style barleywine with limited hops profile but I must admit I enjoyed this beer due to the great balance between all flavours.
