A buddy of mine from Baltimore sent me the Canard as part of a beer exchange we have going, and now I get to drink here in Texas. Hooray for beer.

Poured into a Belgian snifter, Le Canard is a golden copper apricot color with a super thick two-three-finger head of foam on top. It settles into clumpy foam-bergs and sticks to the walls of the glass, leaving behind some excellent lace. The nose is big spicy banana clove with pepper, apple-butter, light caramel, and other assorted fruits. The taste is delicious. Spices abound, with strong fruit flavors (banana, apple, pear, maybe some plum and fig). There is a lot of carbonation in this beer and the fizzy mouthfeel contributes nicely to the peppery sensation of the beer. This is one of the rare beers I've ever given a 5 to for taste. Mouthfeel is fizzy, as I mentioned, but evens out to a smooth creaminess over time as the beer warms.

I used to go to the Brewer's Art in Baltimore from time to time when I lived in DC, and I always loved it. But this may be their finest creation to date. Really, really good stuff here. Makes me sad that I no longer live nearby. But as long as I have friends who live in and around Baltimore, I still have a reason to visit. Cheers to the Brewer's Art. Cheers for Le Canard.

Brewer's Art's latest bottling, "Le Canard", an ode to Kwak.

After disgorgement of a very toyt cork, a quick upswell of eager froth heads for the exit. With a quick slant of a tulip glass at the ready, a carefull pour unloads a massive three-inch head of eggshell.
Wowza. A sight to behold in a Duvel glass.
The rocky, whipped seafoam took a full five minutes to begin to fall. A cone of dense froth stood tall as the sides relinquished their grip. A rare display of extreme lacework. Ripped sheets and foam-ropes.

Aromatics lead off with a blast of peach skins, orange zest, citrus-laden bubblegum, and cracked coriander.
Extremely fresh and lively, and it reminds me of the first whiff of LaChouffe that blew me away, long ago.

Creamy and light mouthfeel. Quite soft and somewhat pillowy. The carbonation delivers plenty of liveliness.

Orange marmalade, fresh peaches, Indian coriander, and grassy overtones start the pallet. Hints of blossom honey, white pepper,
candied cloves, and zesty hops follow through.
Bitterness is firm and balancing, with residuals quite tame for a Belgian.
Alcohol is warming only as it finishes, along with lingering citrus zests, and tropical essence.

This beer blows away Kwak. Well crafted and pretty dry for the style.
Hard to find any faults in this one, but I suppose some time in a Brett-laden Chardonnay barrel (or Gerwertz), would put it over the top.

Big thanks to my buddy Mike for hooking me up..Proper.

Poured from a bottle I had been sitting on for a couple of months.

The beer pours a hazy peach and orange color with good head retention, but really minimal lacing. On the nose this beer is just terrific. The beer smells moderately sweet with toffee, caramel, orange and cherry vanilla. I get some underlying spice as well, which just adds to the attraction. The flavors on the palate replicate the nose, except I get some soft chocolate flavors as well. The beer is long and smooth, and really just delicious. Drinkability is exceptional in this beer, with the abv. very well disguised. I started to feel a bit warm after the second glass, which was the only tip off to the high abv.

This beer is just exceptional, probably my very favorite Brewer's Art beer. Given how many excellent beers these guys make, that's saying something. I think the extra time in bottle has only helped this beer, as my recollection when I first had it was that it was bit more sweet and malty. In any event, highly recommended.

A- Cloudy orange.. some copper. Small bubbly layer of head.

S- Very sweet fruits. Yeasty. Toasty malts. Very complex and what a great aroma.

T- Right along with the smell.. sweet fuits & caremel. Followed by yeast and bready malt finish. Yum.

M- Medium bodied, medium/high carbonation. Spice on the palate.

D- I'm not a fan of this style but Brewer's Art did a wonderful job here. Drinkability is very high here. So sweet and complex.

A: Cottony head akin to the froth in ocean coves, lots of sediment that appears to be frozen in the beer, lingering lace along the edges, has the color and appearance of a peach nectar - 4.50, S: Noticeable spiciness but not an overwhelming aroma, some earthy and possibly piney smells - 4.00, T: Extremely spicy on the tongue, loads of tropical fruit - possibly mango, pineapple even some bubblegum, this beer packs a punch in terms of the alcohol - 4.50, M: Very silky, it hangs around on the tongue - 4.50, D: The Brewer's Art puts out another solid Belgian style brew, quite enjoyable and one I'd proudly serve to guests - 4.50

750ml bottle, purchased at The Perfect Pour

As the description says, this is a coppery pour, although of the lighter, almost honeylike color. A bit cloudy. Massive head on multiple pours.

Typical spice notes in the aroma. Typical initial spicy/bitey notes on initial tastes. I don't pick up as much malt character as Brewers Art describes, but those candi sugars really come through, which I'm enjoying.

Nothing spectacular here, but this seems to be one of the "average" offerings from Brewer's Art yet is still quite well executed and delicious and true to style with a nice touch (the extra malt and candi sugar sweetness) which typifies Brewer's Art.

When this is an average offering from BA, you know they're up to a lot of good things.

Many, many thanks to todd1 for this rarity.

750 ml bottle-corked and caged.

It's worth noting up front that the cork required a corkscrew to remove. It popped out with some force and as I turned to dispose of the cork, bubbles were streaming out of the bottle. Exercise caution when opening (and pouring).

Appearance: It pours a very nice amber/toasted brown color. There's some yeasty sediment swimming around and there's quite a bit at the bottom of the bottle. The head off-white in color and is enormous. It easily attains four fingers in depth. It really requires an easy pour. Retention? How 'bout it won't go away? Thick sheets of lace line the glass.

Smell: The nose is good, but lacks some punch. It's fruity initially and features a good mix of lemon and orange scents. It features a number of spicy aromas. Corriander and a little orange peel seem to be present. If it were a little stronger here, it'd be easier to tell. The classic Belgian yeasty scent is present. No alcohol is noted.

Taste: The flavor of this beer is really impressive. Citrus orange, lemon, and maybe even nectarine kick it off. It is sweet and sugary. The spicy flavors really bring it to life and is where this beer shines. There is some corriander, orange peel, and a mix of other spices. It's a very deep and complex flavor profile. An interesting vanilla flavor emerges late and adds an intriguing twist. Belgian yeastiness really permeates throughout. It finishes sweet and spicy.

Mouthfeel/Drinkability: It's medium bodied and despite its high carbonation features a pretty smooth feel. The bubbles keep it from being elite in this aspect, but it's going down easy enough. Drinkability is very high. I'm really enjoying this beer. It in no way tastes or feels like 8.5% abv beer. I really could drink this all night.

Canard's a really impressive BSPA. The only minor complaint I have is that the nose is a littel weak. That's it. It really is fantastic beer overall. This is my first Brewer's Art experience and I'm eagerly anticipating another. Highly recommended if you have the opportunity.

Thanks to my brother in-law for sending this bottle to me for my birthday. This bottle quite possibly had the hardest cork to remove that I've come across

A - Poured a golden orangish color with a big off white head that leaves lacing

S - Is of fruit yeast and spice

T - Just like it smells lots of good fruity yeasty spiced flavor

M - This beer has a medium body with a very high level of carbonation to it

D - I really liked this beer a lot it was very good easy to drink didn't notice the abv while drinking it worth trying

Pain in the ass cork to pull. Pours an oh-so-slightly fogged amber with a thick creme head. Nose is kind of one-dimensional with a load of sugars being presnt. Flavor is a sweet tone thy carries minor dough and funk. Not complex, but very nice indeed. Feel is smooth on liquid and carbonation is good. This is a very nice drinker. Easily my favorite of the Belgian styles from Brewers Art. Probably should have bought more bottles to bring home.

Had this courtesy of gford217 - much obliged!

The cork shot out of this one and made a bee-line for the ceiling and a solid two ounces of this gushed out before we got it under control - keep a glass near while opening.

Pours a hazy light orange color with a large white head. The head recedes into a thin pancake on top leaving solid lacing.

Smells of citrus fruits and sugar-coated pears with hints of spices - mainly pepper and clove.

Tastes similar to how it smells. Belgian candi sugar and pear flavors are backed by sweet malt up front. Small amounts of spiciness come in along with faint citrus flavors right before a sweet ending.

Mouthfeel is good. It's got a nice thickness with very active carbonation.

Drinkability is good. I had no problem finishing my glass and could have another.

Overall this is a solid BSPA, I just wish I'd had a slightly more vigorous pour to let the carbonation ease out a bit more. Still, the flavors are work well together and make this beer one that is worth a shot.

Appearance: clear orange in color with a 2" head that lasts forever. Some spots of lace appear during the session.

Smell: yeast, caramel, and a hint of alcohol are picked up easily by the nose.

Taste: caramel, yeast, ripe fruits, some mild earthy qualities, and a dash of pepper spiciness rounds this out. Alcohol is barely noticeable but mildly warming.

Mouthfeel: Crisp from start to finish. There is some light dryness at the end. Medium bodied. Aftertaste is relatively short.

Drinkability: I wish I bought a few more bottles of this. Slower sipping beer that has great flavor and a few of these can be had in a single session. I hope I can find more of this down the road.

thanks to brewandbbq for the chance to try this neat beer!

A - cork comes off with an authoritative pop! I poured this in a glass big enough to 3/4ths of a 750 on most occaisons - full glass of foam. Eventually settles into a hazy copper colored brew. It took 4 pours to get through the 750 and even through the last pour it was almost entirely foam. Thankfully it did not overflow the bottle.

S - belgian esters, a funky note, honey, sweet malts and a peppery aspect.

T - similar to the aroma but with a grassy hop undernote.

M - medium bodied, overcarbonated, soft once settled down with a warming finish.

D - once it setteled down this drank quite nicely. Good character and pleasant finish.

A corked and caged 750 mL bottle purchased at State Line.

A: The bottle opened with a pop and a slow stream of carbonation that threatened (albeit at a glacial pace) to spill over the sides of the bottle. The ale is a auburn in color, a twilight-esque mix of dark and light. The large head was fast to dissapate.

S: The nose is fruity with apricot and tangerine arising thanks to the yeast. Candi sugars further fortify the nose.

T: The ale fires on all cylinders, as far as I am concerned. Up front, the candi sugars create a lush environment that fosters the aforementioned apricot and tangerine. The ale is well-carbonated, scrubbing away the sugary sweetness and leaving the fruits to linger. I am enjoying this bottle.

M: The mouthfeel is lush, fruity with a great aftertaste of apricots. The booze does come through at times, adding a little too much heat.

D: The alcohol is high but not too high. Over the course of 2-3 hours, this is a very enjoyable beer. But then again, I've never had a bad beer from the Brewer's Art.

I had this one on tap.

Poured a medium amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Fruity aroma with some yeastiness. Tastes of apples, pears, spices and I was getting some light chocolate in the background.

Now to compare my notes with a bottled version!

Enjoyed this 750ml bottle out of a large snifter glass. Very tight cork POPS! and lets the brew breath.

A: Pours a copper hue with some blonde highlights Has a thin 1-finger white head that quickly dissipates and leaves a solid persistent lace.

S: Strong sweet Belgian candi aroma with hints of honey, yeast and mixed fruits.

T: Sweet beer with lots of fruity flavors – apple, pear, and possibly grapes. There are hints of honey and lemons mixed in here. Complex flavors cross the palate with every sip.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: This was an excellent Belgian strong brew. Very complex and very tasty

The packaging for this beeer is a great way to enjoy the beer, a nice corked 750ml.

A- Pours a hazy straw yellow with a thick white head.

S- Scent of Belgian yeast and esters.

T- Starts off kind of sweet, but finishes pretty balanced. Hints of ripe fruit and some pepper.

M- As a bottle-conditioned beer this is perfect, not too fizzy, but not flat either.

D- A very good example of the style, at 8.5% though, more than a couple may be too much of a good thing.

750ml corked and caged bottle #206 received after winning Dyan's Sling Comes Off LIF. Thanks for the chance for this one Dyan!

As stated previously, the cork takes a mega-effort to get out. I was able to do so without a corkscrew but it took some serious doing. It gushed a bit and poured out with a near-glassful of foam. The bottle continued to foam while sitting off on the table, too. However, the glassful of foam dissipated fairly quickly leaving some loose honeycombs and cool lacing. The body is a hazy dark orange.

Aroma is typical of Belgian yeasts, with some clovy, medicinal notes and peppery spices. There are some fruity tones as well.

The sweet candi sugar is the first thing noticed on the taste, along with faint, smooth banana, cloves, coriander and pepper. More sweet fruits stood out as the temperature rose a bit. Very clean mouthfeel with a bit of a sweet/dry finish. A very good beer for special occasions, though the folks at Brewers Art need to work on that gushing issue.

The cork is way to far in and requires a cork screw, but this beer is incredibly well carbonated as it forcefully ejects the cork and cork screw mid pull. Luckily I had my 25cl tulip nearby and I didn't lose any beer despite some foaming up. The head is quite voluminous and has to be scraped off twice to prevent over-flowing. I end up with a five-finger thick, pale, almost perfectly white colored head. The beer is an orangish, pale amber color that shows a hazy, but brighter color when held up to the light. The aroma is a nice mix of malt, hops and fermentation character. Spicy with notes of pepper, ginger, almost a touch of cinnamon, an earthy-almost coriander note and a wood note that are balanced by fruity notes similar to apple, pear and a light orange-blossom aromatic. The aroma is also grassy, with a nice, clean, pale malt toastiness . The hops, while slight, accentuate the grassy note and provide a touch of herbal character and something that is a bit like fresh cut, aromatic weeds. This has quite an interesting nose, it is quite easy to spend some time just smelling this without even needing to take a sip.

On the other hand, I really need a beer so sip I must. The flavor is sweet and spicy up front with a substantial citrus / orange-blossom note that is followed by spicy higher alcohols and phenolics. The finish has a mix of clove, warming higher alcohols, a piquant pepper-like note and just a touch of an herbal hop bitterness. There is quite a bit going on in this beer, in addition to the previously mentioned notes I get flavors of clove (lots of this), sweet-ripe aromatic pear, pickled ginger, a light note of sweet-tart perfectly ripe plums, a touch of damp earthiness in the finish.

An over-confident second pour leaves with more foam than I can suck down and a puddle of foam on my desk. The beer gets a bit more fruit focused as it warms up and subsequent pours have a really pepper, quite zippy carbonation as well as quite the carbonic bite. The texture of this beer is just about spot on; the prickly carbonation ensures a tongue scrubbing airiness with every sip and the body has just a touch of viscousness without keeping this from being quite quaffable. While this never actually gets hot, it doesn't really hide its alcohol all that well; mostly the higher alcohols give this away, but they do add some interesting notes so it is certainly not all bad.

This beer is quite complex all around, it is perhaps a touch sweeter than I usually prefer, but I think in this case, this beer needs the sweetness to balance the piquant fermentation character; ample higher alcohols and phenols which could easily be too much, but here are tempered by the malt sweetness. The head of this beer is just about perfect, everyone of my four pours is fluffy, textured and long lasting, and the hazy orange-amber color is quite nice as well. A beer that is very enjoyable, perhaps even more so than I would expect.

A rendition of Kwak. Very drinkable. Poured at the Grey Lodge during Groundhog's Day festivities.

Pours with a nice head and a lace that stays throughout. Brownish color. Taste hits you with nice but not overpowering malt with a good bit of Belgian yeast esters, which don't take over the taste but remain.

Very good session beer if you are in the mood for a Belgian-style.

Yum... Had this on tap at Brewer's Art. It's OK in the bottle, but flavors are so much more developed on tap. It is a mellow sweetness, but not cloying you so. It is yeast and dry fruit, with a nice level of carbonation.

Deep orange color, slightly opaque with a huge head and surprisingly, oddly big bubbles that dissolve down fairly rapidly. No real lacing.

Nose is incredibly strong on alcohol and spiciness; solid caramel malt belanced well with a light hoppy spice.

Flavor is similar: toffee malt and alacohol up front, with nice spices and dried fruit - caramel backbone. Almost no hop presence. Extremely sweet, brown sugar.

Very spicy, bouncy carbonation on the tongue, maybe a little too strong in the possible masking of some of the flavor. Nice medium body.

Overall, I like this one. Not the most amazing BSPA I've had, but tasty and interesting.

Thanks to my buddy BeerTruth for this one.

Pours an orangeish copper color with just a slight haze and two plus fingers of off-white head. Head settles slowly and leaves a full lace and a ton of stick all over the sides.

Smell is quite nice, with floral and fruity yeast aromas, and a pale malt sweetness with a bit of a candy aroma to it. Fruit is citrus and tropical, maybe some pineapple. Some peppery spice in the nose, too, and just a subtle musty character.

Taste is a bit more musty and earthy than the smell, and also has a much bigger black pepper bite to it. Still a nice pale malt sweetness with some citrus and tropical fruit flavor, too. The flavor just swirls back and forth between fruity and spicy, a hint of sweetness here and some earthiness there. Maybe a touch on the sweet side, but still quite tasty. As it warmed and I got deeper into the bottle I started to notice a lot more alcohol. I'm not sure why it didn't really come through sooner, but it got to be quite hot, to the point where the last few sips burned a bit going down.

Mouthfeel is a very creamy medium to full body, crisply carbonated yet it feels soft and smooth. Finishes with some sweetness left on the tongue and a bit of spice, too.

This is quite the tasty brew, with some nice complexities and flavor. The alcohol got to be a bit much toward the end of the bottle, but it's definitely worth picking up.

Review from BeerAdvocate magazine Vol. II Issue X:

Releasing the tightly placed cork reveals a very active pop--this beer is just waiting to breath. Lively carbonation fills the glasses right to the rim with three fingers of bubbly head; decent head retention here. Mildly chilled, the hazed amber-gold color tells us to let this beer hit cellar temperature. Full jacket of exotic and tropical fruit in the aroma, all soft but very complex, with suggestions of mango, kiwi, passion fruit and Asian pear. The nose also exposes a faint white peppercorn alcohol and some biscuity malt. The medium body shows off a big mouthful of smoothness. Mellow but steady fruitiness throughout, starting with apple peel and pineapple, ending with fresh fig and papaya. Slightly warm alcohol comes off a little peppery, hint of chalky yeast. Solid biscuit malt flavor with a mild hop bitterness, which balances the beer well with the help of the alcohol and light bitter, herbal, nearly clovey phenols from the yeast.

The Brewer's Art flex their brewing muscles here. A bit rustic, but that's a given broadness for Belgian-style beers. A good sipper. Very enjoyable.

Poured from corked and caged 750ml bottle into a standard pint glass. This is a real gusher lots of foam, huge head and massive amounts of carbonation. Pours a translusant cloudy amber, with plenty of sediment. Slight Candy sugar and very light hops on the nose. Yummy, banna esters candy sugar and very light hop presence. Slight funk keeps this interesting. Nice slight lingering sweetness, Carbonation adds nicely to over all body. Nice mouth feel, Alcohol is hidden well. A very nice clone of Kwak. Looking forward to hitting up brewers art in the near future.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.

A nice fluffy and off tan and very pinhead even bubbled head. Three fingers tall and settles nicely, with lots of rising fast tan carbonation along the edges. Body color is a nice deep amber almost red, but hints at a rusted burnt orange and quite opaque.

Hints of classic overseas Belgian character, sucrose sweet and lots of toasty brown sugars to match. Some mild clove sensations, warm herbal tea strangely, and soft cinnamon.

Palate comes with expected pleasure. Nice subdued and sweet brown sugar and cinnamon with a good carbonated and dried palate. Crisp almost champagne like but with raisin and fruit density. Noticeably warm but not horrifically boozy though.

Overall, while not a strong pale, it's a textbook Belgian amber pretty much.
