No. 412 – Le Bilboquet’s Saint Barnabé Sud
I have in mind a little day trip to Saint Hyacinthe before the end of the year. An opportunity to get out of Montreal for a morning, walk around and take photos of a new place. Then I shall go to Le Bilboquet’s bar and have a nice new beer. In the meantime, here is there strawberry beer…
It’s a healthy dark golden orange colour with a little hint of rouge and the aroma is of sweet strawberries. The head is bubbly and tastes lovely. It’s creamy, a little malty and froths nicely with a little bitter fizz at the end. The strawberry is perfectly balanced, at no point did I think that this beer was too sweet or that I wasn’t tasting enough of it. This is a really good beer and even the last gulp was creamy, malty and a little strawberryey.
Yes, it’s good.
Yes, it’s worth the price.
Yes, it’s accurate.
Yes, it’s a little different or unique.
Yes, I’d drink it again.
Yes, I’d recommend it.
Yes, I’d go out of my way for it.
Yes, I’d go out in a snowstorm or a heatwave for it.
I haven’t had a bad beer from Le Bilboquet. I will try to do a summary of the other beers I’ve tasted from them soon (La Champêtre, Peau d’Ours, La Corriveau Impérial, L’Archange, MacKroken Flower and Geminus).
