A- Opens with an explosive cork release like Champagne, but was not a gusher. Displays a cloudy dark copper color - on the dark side for a BSPA. The off-white/beige head is mountainous, leaving copious amounts of sticky lace.

S- Mustiness blows right off, revealing an alluring aroma of cut hay, apple, yeast phenolics, caramel malt, clover honey, pink peppercorns, and faint hops. Very appealing.

T- Sweet, rich, delicious candy sugar, apple, yeast, husk, and spice flavors draw you in further, and call you back for more. A faint hop note on the finish.

Superb drinkability, offering generous amounts of rich flavor, complexity and finesse simultaneously. Recommended!

First thing to note- the head on this is insane; it's been 5 minutes and it literally looks like meringue. So tightly knit with a silky sheen. It's got me hypnotized, to a certain extent, but onward I shall go. The aroma is soft and elegant, and intricately woven together. Wildflowers and citrus hit me first, bringing to mind a bright sunny day. Underneath are bread, caramel, hay, gentle spiciness (coriander, anise, vanilla). Whether there are any genuine spices in here or not I couldn't say, but those are the aromatic impressions I'm getting. The palate is moderately full, highlighting caramel most of all, but the spiciness is right up there with it. Lemon peel and straw come out on the long finish. It's a bit sugary while on the palate, but finishes pleasingly dry with just the slightest warming sensation from the alcohol. At the very end I'm also getting a slight hint of dried lavendar.

La Bière de Beloeil pours copper amber with a slight haze under a very fluffy off-white foam collar that slowly dissipates to ¼” and leaves very clingy, clumpy lace. Caramel on the nose with hints of chocolate and light citrus. On the palate starts light fruit and spice introduce dark malt flavors balancing between caramel and chocolate that dries out on the finish with a mellow bitter accent. Medium to medium full body and fine soft, natural carbonation. Big flavor, easy to drink.

Bottle from Harvest Wines. From notes.

A - Poured a really cloudy dark gold. Good carbonation and a one finger eggshell head. A little lace and a finger of retention.

S - Hoppy, fruity, grassy, floral. Pretty great aroma.

T - Grass, hops, fruitiness, some funk, bubblegum, and caramel. Again, pretty awesome.

M - Mild bitterness with a sweet note as well and good carbonation with a medium body.

O/D - This was a terrific beer. Really tasty and easy to drink while being extremely complex with layers of flavours I certainly wasn't expecting to find. Lovely combo of hop/yeast/malt profile made for a very enjoyable experience. Great stuff.

BB 10-2007. Nice white head and beautifull bronzeamber foggy beer. Nose probably the best of the brew. Fresh grassy, pepperspiced, little bretty, full malty with wheat, alcoholic and gives the farmhouse nose well but very clean. Taste is dry and strong alcoholic, very salty and peppery, fine malts and litle winelike. Bitter and alcoholic aftertaste. Good brew with lots of carbon dioxide for fresh and spicy mouthfeel. Very refreshing and enjoyable brew, quiet saisonlike.
