Brasseurs du Monde La Saison Tradition (2013 from my hoard)

I'm such a beer hoarder.. I don't even know when I got this? Mayyyybe at Dépanneur Peluso back in 2014? The bottle seems to be dated back in 2013 (May 2013). This time around I'm checking out La Saison Tradition by Brasseurs du Monde out of Saint-Hyacinthe, Quebec. Looking on Untappd, all my friends started drinking this beer only back in 2016 so it's possible that I got this way back when.. but I will never remember!

Appearance: Clear, amber, light carbonation. The head pours decently for being 6 years old already.. nice moderate amount of white head on top.

Aroma: Yeah, the first sniff I get.. it didn't age well in my hoard. If you've had beer that hasn't aged well, you'll know what I mean. It's sweet, has a bit of cardboard aroma to it, moderate amount of caramel, hint of bubble gum, slight floral notes.

Taste: Caramel is the main thing I get, but yeah.. not fresh but still drinkable. I find when you get a sweet beer that hasn't aged well, it tastes like Earl Grey tea, and this one does remind me of that. There's still a bit of a floral presence to it that seems to be popping up, which I enjoy.. as well as a hint of bubble gum and a fairly dry presence to it.

Why Cody, whyyyy?: I have a goal to review or try everything I get, so I had to tell you how it was. Brasseurs du Monde makes awesome beer but I had this in a box in a sunlit room for who knows how long, so I don't know why I didn't review this as soon as I got it.. aside from being stubborn as eff. Sweet, reminiscent of an amber ale.. once I get a fresh bottle, I'll do a proper good review.. assuming I don't leave it in a sunlit area for the next bottle for several years.

Dammit Cody, just stop!
