An amber orange ale with a thin off white head. A grainy funky malt with meaty notes, rye, light Brett notes. In mouth, an interesting grainy rye malt with light Brett notes, warming alcohol, light hopping, and fruity esters. On tap at Mondiale 2010.

2012-07-08. Lightly hazy bright orange body with a nice foamy beige head. 3+ Funky bretty aroma, interesting fruit character hints at wine. Mild barrel character in the background, and muted touches of yeast and spice. 7+ Flavour shows the woodiness of the barrel more than the aroma, and an earthy vegetal touch (carrots?) that is sort of pleasant, light funk. Average plus bodied palate. Really interesting but I do not entirely love how it all comes together. Bottle 601 of 900 via trade with SlovakSniper

MartinT (8736) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 5, 2010
My Bottom Line:
This intense Barrel-Aged Wild Tripel proposes beautiful grape fruitiness in perfect harmony with brettanomyces and pear-like esters.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the hazy peach blond.
-When tasted side-by-side with Allagash’s masterful Interlude, this À La Fût appeared unrefined. Aromatic, flavorful, but perhaps too loud to be of the same caliber.
-Citrusy fruitiness is also present, mostly in the second half of each sip as the oak starts to take more room in the flavor profile.
-All flavors are balanced.

On tap at the Mondial.

UPDATED: AUG 12, 2012 Bottle [341ml] shared with garthicus. Bottle 879 of 900. Pours a hazy golden-orange with a small lasting frothy off-white head. Very nice aroma of Brett, I just love it, nice and funky, A bit sweet, along with some fruit and light wood. Flavour of funky yeast, Brett-ey, along with light herbs, light grassy hops, wood and light spices. Medium bodied. Surprised with the low ratings for this, I really enjoyed this, well done. -- Rated via Beer Buddy.

Rastacouere (6162) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 24, 2011
Clear light orangey amber pour covered by a more than honest off-white foam that partly clings to the glass. Grapey, cherry-like fruity indeed aroma where the oak is very obvious and the brett, relatively subtle but for the tropical fruit notes. Not especially complex nose, but with a certain grainy heaviness that hints at upcoming thickness. As it enters the mouth, the amount of residual sugars in there is surprising. It’s quite heavy for a brett beer, could the vegetal Frontenac malts be more dextrinous and has the brett simply not had the time to decompose the complex sugars? Perhaps. Anyways, we’re facing a caramelized, liquorish ale with strong honey accents, so much so that I could have believed it’s a wild braggot. Leather and tropical fruits are coherent with brett presence, but it simultaneously feels green and kinda vegetal which is less agreeable. The pinot is completely muted, woodsy for sure, butforget about refined tannins. At this stage, the beer is still relatively heavy, perhaps even slightly sticky. I welcome the addition of such wild ales in Quebec’s landscape, but at 7.99+txes a pop, I’ll stick to buying two Orval and keeping the change as I appreciate brett in drier beers.
