Mark won this sexy looking bottle through work. It looks more like a champagne bottle than a beer bottle, which maybe his employer was going for…trick some unsuspecting people into drinking strange Quebec beer! Well, either way, it’s ours now. It sounds like some old tarppist ale, made by monks with airborne yeasts, but it is from a microbrew in Quebec, not run by monks.
It was during his son’s second birthday party (being held at my house) that he brought it over for us. Unfortunately for him and I, Jackie and Mongie were there too, and they wanted in on it. So lets do the math…750ml divided into 4 glasses after consuming untold amounts of beer already….I didn’t pour them evenly.
No matter, we still got the gist of it. Off the top it smells like a good wheatie beer, kind of like any Unibroue…ever! Right before we tasted it, we all looked at each other as if to say, No, YOU go first. We caved and all started at the same time. Mongie was taken a little aback, since he hasn’t refined his palete like the rest of us (excuse me while I fix my monocle). The taste was great. It had a good wheatie taste and some light hoppiness to it. It would be a great beer to sip in the heat of summer.
I took my sweet time drinking it since it was really good, and I only had a little bit. And then the wife saves the day again. The next time she was in the LCBO, she picked up another bottle for Mark and I to enjoy the right way, half each. Thanks, The Wife.
