600 Bishop Drive, Unit 2   Fredericton, NB     506 454-4810

YEAR ROUND

CHEVAL D'OR

VISUAL: 

Straw-yellow-gold. Medium turbidity. White head. Creamy, lasting.

 

AROMA:

Complex spicy, black pepper and fruity (pineapple, apple, banana, kiwi, lemon) expressive yeast dominates. A hint of smoke is not inappropriate. Light biscuit and hay/straw. Low, lightly floral and grassy hops round out the background. Low sulfur levels are acceptable.

 

TASTE:

Bright, balanced fruity - lemon, apple, banana, etc. - notes with spicy - black pepper, coriander - characteristics as well. Medium perceived sweetness and body followed by a crisp, dry finish thanks to a high attenuation rate. Low grassy hops exist in the background. Medium straw/hay, grainy malt character.

MOUTHFEEL:

While the finish is dry, this beer is medium-bodied, with a hint of creamy/chewy adjunct derived body. The best examples feature a spritzy carbonation level, increasing drinkability. Light bitterness, without astringency, also adds to the refreshing quality of this beer.

OVERALL:

Complex, finishing clean and dry, with an interesting yeast-dominant fruit and spice balance. Creaminess and spritziness balance each other effortlessly in the best examples. Sulfur and fusel character should be kept to a minimum, allowing subtle grassy hop character to exist behind the expressive, unique yeast.

 

ABV 5.6%
