Beer blogger Cassandra C. wrote, "I do not know if you've heard of sotolon or research François Chartier published in the book Taste Buds and Molecules ? In summary, the sotolon is aromatic molecule that is found in many ingredients like curry, maple, nuts, coffee, celery salt, etc.. This is reflected in this beer. This beer is produced in association with water Aubier (a sap water produced in Quebec). In addition to water, other unusual ingredients such as quinoa, millet, buckwheat and brown rum. This is surely all these differences make such a unique beer."
Hugely aromatic beer. It's a yellow-golden blonde color. But it has huge aromas of coffee, caramel, and maple syrup. With its 8.5%! This is a huge, huge beer! It's a blonde Imperial Stout! Amazing. One of the best beers of the night!!!
From the brewer: Hibiscus flower Wit "Bottle conditioned" Rosée d’Hibiscus is a soft spoken wheat beer. The rose colour comes from the hibiscus flowers added during the brewing process. The aromas and flavour of this tropical flower are very prominent in the beer, giving it a slight acidity and a very agreeable fragrance. This was a huge hit, especially with many of the lady bloggers...but it won high mark from everyone! The Rosée d'hibiscus was born in their Montreal brewpub in May 2006.
From the brewer: The Peppercorn rye beer Routes des épices (French for "Spice Route") is a rye beer brewed with both black and green peppercorns. Initially, the beer reveals flavours of fresh grain and malt, which give it notes of chocolate, caramel, and fruit. The pepper flavour and aroma is fully revealed in the finish, which leaves a pleasant, spicy, tingling sensation on the tongue. Absolutely fantastic! So unique! Loved it! The Route des épices was born in their Montreal brewpub in May 2002.
A very solid Blonde Pale Ale. A light yellow ale with nice Pilsner like quality when drinking. A good, quaffable beer. Nice hoppiness. Good cereal notes.
