750 ml bottle. Pours an opaque orangeish red with...no head whatsoever. Smell is fruity, especially cherry, and woody. Taste is sweet, winey, black cherry. Some fine bitterness, wood. Quite a bit of acidity, tart, dry fruits. Wine. Medium body. Weak carbonation. Pretty good!

May 3, 2012 - with blankboy, garthicus, gregclow, jercraigs & mabel. 750ml green bottle c/o J&M?? Murky deep red with a smallish but lasting frothy beige rocky head. Aroma of cherry, alcohol, floral bitterness. Taste is odd - sweet cherry, almost medicinal, yet sour too - light, not much alcohol presence - wine? where???? Fairly thick body, lightly acidic, mild carbonation with a slightly harsh dry sour finish. Ehh.

BeerGolem (715) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 12, 2012
Bottle 750 ml. Bought at Peluso (Montreal). Serve in tulip. Well, it’s great to taste a good sour ale from Quebec since we don’t have much of these. Aroma is amazing, but taste does not live up to the expectation. Final is quite disapointing. Hopefully, they will improve a little. Still, very good beer.

Marheb (2302) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 5, 2012
Se déploie sur plusieurs niveaux, l’acidité attaque dès le début mais est rattrapé par la vigueur des malt rougis. Les tannins enrobent superbement le l’oeuvre, belle bouteille.

(750ml bottle, courtesy of BMan1113VR) Pours a cloudy amber-brown body with a small off-white head. Aroma of red apple skins, caramel, vinous, leather, and florals. Flavor of plum, red apple, caramel, vinous, wood, stone fruit, and light earthiness.

GarnotingPete (777) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 16, 2012
Oktoberfest des Québécois 2012 - Bière voilée, d’un beau cuivre profond et où flotte un fin col laissant une fine dentelle au verre. Des arômes originaux de foin humide, de fruits rouges et de miel sur une structure boisée. Peu amère avec une acidité notable, mais pas désagréable. Légère, lisse et finement effervescente et se termine sur de beaux arômes, une acidité rafraîchissante et une légère astringence.

Bottle via a trade with tom10101. Epic gusher! Pours with a hazed amber-brown hued body (slightly muddy clarity) with a small (when it settles) tan head. Aromas are of huge malt, floral, red wine. Nice esters, oak and vanillin. Tart, nice brett complexity, leathery and fruity. Flavors are tart, fruity, clay/earthy, plum, red apple, medium wood, floral, acidic with light tangerine qualities. Lots of vinous red wine notes. Lively bubbles, medium dry with a medium body. Good!

Minderbinder (2028) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 29, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2012 Bottle 750ml. Pours murky brown with low to no head. Aroma is of bretts, fruits, yeast. Taste is of bretts, fruits, spices. Spicy on the tongue. Overall: refreshing, good stuff. [Editing after tasting last batch]: No more "spicy on the tongue". Very good, a sip calling for another one. Good balance. Nice brett action without beeing too much (everyone can enjoy it). Adding a point to taste.

tom10101 (3104) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 29, 2012
Bottle (750 ml). Cloudy (probably because of the gushing) amber/copper with a medium creamy off-white head. Aroma of brett, sour cherries, malt, caramel. Taste of brett, cherries, malt, wine and wood. Mouthfeel is dry but not quite acidic. It’s not perfect, but it’s a step in the good direction to make a very good flanders red.
