Flacatoune beer from Quebec

Flacatoune beer by Microbrasserie Charlevoix

I really enjoyed this Belgian Pale Ale beer from the Charlevoix Microbrewery in Quebec. This is one brewery that rarely disappoints and I’ve had a good number of their beers.

Flacatoune is a 7% beer that pours with a big, perfectly coating and sticky head that never fully dissipates while drinking the beer.

Aroma is intensely sour with a ripe fruit smell, including some citrus. It’s herbal and earthy but not too bitter tasting. The beer finishes a bit dry, but inviting – a really nice beer, with a bit of saison type qualities but still more of a Belgian style ale.

If you’re a fan of Belgian-styled craft beers this is quite likely among the top 10 you’ll find in Quebec. I have no idea what the word “Flacatoune” means, but I do know it’s a great tasting beer.
