From what I recall… (Chalet Weekend part 1)

From What I Recall…

A weekend in a chalet far from Montreal with a bunch of friends seemed like a good opportunity to taste a few more new beers.  In retrospect, this was not the brightest idea.  Firstly, and least surprisingly the notes that I made on each beer became less and less detailed as the number of the beer increased.  Secondly, I thought it bright to simply make notes on my phone, my phone which auto-corrects everything under the sun.  Some beers were ‘very god,’  and apparently I tasted some beers from ‘Belle Gurgle.’  Thirdly, the quality of the pictures varies from interesting to let’s say slurred.  Anyways, here’s a brief rundown of the first six that I tried…

No. 73 – Tordeusse Brett Anneda – Microbrasserie Lac Saint Jean

A light blonde beer that I was a good way to start the drinking.  Nothing special about this one.  A Yes for each of the following – was good, price was fine, description was accurate, I’d drink it again and I’d recommend it, particularly for people who don’t drink much.

5/11

Next up are several home made brews from a friend, cheers to Declan for donating them!

Nos. 74 – 77 – Cerveza, Summer Ale, IPA and Cider

I remember having a brief conversation about these drinks as I tried them and that they all matched their descriptions somewhat, so they all got a Yes for that.  Other than that I was surprised that they were all pretty good and quite individual.  So they all get a Yes for being good.  I’d definitely try them  again so that’s a third Yes and they were free samples so another Yes for the price.  Yes, I would also recommend them to anybody who’s interested in tasting different beers.  They all get the same mark.  Pretty consistent, which is good.

And back to Domaine Berthiaume for the Elfe Noire..

No. 78 – L’Elfe Noire, Domaine Berthiaume

This was a fine stout, which was probably the last drink that I had before things got blurry.  I also had to take various pictures while avoiding people waving their hands in front of the camera, so I felt that I earned this beer.  It’s quite light for a stout, I remember thinking at least, which had hints of something that I recall matching the description.  So, I’m giving it a Yes for being good and a Yes for the description.  I’d give it a bonus Yes for the picture but I don’t want to get into that habit.  The price as usual from Métro was reasonable, only about $5 so that’s another Yes and I would drink it again and recommend it.  Although there was a hint of something a little different taste wise, I don’t recall being blown away so I’m going to leave it at five yeses.

5/11

So six beers all getting five out of eleven.  By now, I’m starting to realise just how unfussy I am when it comes to beer.  Five is a fine mark, but the really good beers will be getting seven or more.
