4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Brew Pub. 2 glasses - first glass was the bottom of the keg and second glass was fresh tapping. 1st was murky and cloudy amber - 2nd not as cloudy. Off white head. 1st glass was nice and hoppy - floral and pine. Both nice and funky, yeast, citrus and fruits. Lighter spices. Fresh keg still nice and hoppy. Going to rate on the nice hoppiness of the 1st glass!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
[on tap at brewpub]
Complex aroma with sour white grape and banana and kiwi notes; faint strawberry. Murky orange-red under a thin white cover that is lacy and with a thick ring. Pleasantly sour toffee and white grape flavour with a complex finish of celery, dill, strawberry, and exotic fruits. Light to medium body, medium carbonation (I would like a touch more), woody bitter finish.

Nice aroma of funky yeasty hops. Some light barnyard, with some light earthiness. The body is light and the carb is a little high. Dry finish and a touch of funk.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
In short: A funky and woody blonde ale. Really cool.
How: Tap at Chambly beer Fest 2010. Multiple samples
The look: Cloudy blonde body topped by a long lasting small beige head
In long: Nose is a mix of funky brett and the smell of a woodshop. Very fun aroma. Taste has crisp cookies with light fruity notes of grapefruits, citrus fruits and even bananas. Also a sensation of freshly cut wood and chewing a flower stem. Funk from start to finish. Dry finish. Not much (if any) sourness or tartness here, just pure funk. Body was full and lively. Another superb creation from Benelux. Times have changed. Ten years ago I would have run to a payphone to tell my friends that I found a funky barrel aged beer in Quebec. Nowadays barrel aged funky beers are popping everywhere and payphones are only used for arranging drop off of ransom money.
