This smooth red beer will charm you with its roundness, while its bubbles casually rise to the surface to form a discreet but persistent head. The pineapple and white wine aromas, and the subtle omen of acidity escaping the glass, make it hard to foresee what will come next. The palate first features a hint of hoppy bitterness, which is quickly overcome by the caramel notes given off by the impressively malty base. The finish, long and persistent, evokes flavours of maple sap with a surprising intensity.
Those with a sweet tooth, maple pie lovers and Maple Leafs fans will love Nez de poivrot. The same goes for maple syrup producers, for this recipe contains more than 20 litres of that heavenly syrup! But remember: it is better to bring your lips to a Nez de poivrot than to have one between both eyes
