Hazy, lemon-drop-yellow beer sports a foamy, fizzy, white, small, bubbly head. Lemon nose with a touch of spoonk and sweet butter. Fruity, sour, tangy. Then butter, sour fruit. Fizzy, fullish. Finally, sour, bitter fruit with complex grainsiness. Almost a rye-like sourness. Buttery aftertaste. Interesting. Quite a complex grain profile. A tasty, fresh, summery beer. Buttery. Cool that this tiny brewery is trying different ideas.

quart bottle: Poured a lightly hazed honey-gold ale. smallish cap..light surface lace. Interesting aroma: light biscuit and honey tones with some herbal-spicy-grassyness and a light mustiness. AND (am I dreaming) a thin coffee aroma?? Thin mouth feel, sour-citrus character. Thin pale malts, pervasive sour-musty citrus tastes and very earthy...yet dry and spritzy in the finish....never had anything like this...odd uncomplimentary flavors all in one place...nothing seems to gel into a cohesive flavor profile...and way too thin and watery.

500 mL brown bottle, undated. An organic pale ale brewed with barley, oats, kamut, wheat and rye. Breakfast of champions.

Hazy straw-coloured brew with a generous clinging head.

Aroma is yeasty, slightly sour and musty.

Very tart with almost no malt character and hops are nowhere to be found. The rye comes through with its distinctive, almost overpowering flavour and the beer finishes dry with sour wheaty notes. Body is light and carbonation moderate.

Overall an unimpressive beer. I've really given Les Frères Houblon a chance but their brews are a consistent let-down, all lacking body and character.
