Je l’ai bue sous le nom «Triple», puis sous le nom «Saison Brux» à quelques reprises, puis encore sous le nom «Triple» vieillie plus d’un an en garde-robe. Peu importe le nom qu’on lui donne, j’adore cette bière. Elle est belle et lumineuse avec une mousse noble et tenace. Elle sent le paradis (le paradis sent les Brett, j’ai vérifié). Elle goûte les fleurs et les épices, le tout soutenu par une acidité dosée

Boutip (4642) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 4, 2012
Bottle: Poured a hazy orangey color ale with a super large foamy head with great retention and some very good lacing. Aroma of Brett and dry hops notes with light funky ester is quite wonderful. Taste is also a exquisite mix between some Brett notes with light barnyard notes which are well balance with some dry floral hoppy notes. Malt is semi-sweet and doesn’t take away too much form the wonderful aroma of hops and Brett but act as a solid backbone. Another wonderful treat from Boquebiere.

pumpkinhead2 (300) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 19, 2013
Bière jaune soleil, or liquide, voilée avec des particules en suspension, très effervescente, surmontée d’un très large col blanc bien mousseux qui se réduit tranquillement en traçant son chemin le long des parois du verre. Arômes dominants de levure belge et de pain, avec quelques odeurs d’agrumes, de fruits tropicaux, d’épices (girofle, coriandre, poivre et herbes salées) et de houblon floral. Un beau bouquet, mais rien d’extraordinaire, et ça manque un peu d’intensité. En bouche, ce n’est pas très pétillant, plutôt mousseux, mais l’onctuosité au palais est excellente, bière bien ronde. Au goût, c’est fruité à souhait, ça détonne un peu du nez qui est très levure. Mangue, papaye, banane, orange, c’est plutôt sucré, mais avec une pointe d’acidité, la levure et le pain sont présent au goût, mais les épices sont plus subtils en bouche. La finale apporte un léger houblon floral et une faible amertume. Cette bière me semble une hybride entre une saison et une triple, et elle est excellente.

Pours a cloudy light gold with a big frothy white head and a lasting lace. Aroma is yeasty with some floral hops. Taste is lemon citrus, yeast, small hop bitterness and a little funk. But a whole lot of floral, almost like taking a Febreeze shot in the mouth. Very enjoyable though.

BeerGolem (660) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 29, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2012 Bottle 500 ml. Bought at Peluso (Montreal). Served in tulip. Pours hazy amber with thick creamy white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is amazing: brett, hops, yeast, fruits, lavander, citrus, floral and slight acidity. Taste is a bit dispointing though, very soapy in fact. Finsih is very dry. Not sure if it has the drinkability of a saison, but for its aroma, this beer deserves a good score.

In short: A bright and perfumy brett extravaganza. Lovely (if you like wild ales).
How: Botttle 500ml, a few times. Fresh (good but needed time) then this rating for a 8 months old bottle.
The look: Cloudy pale orange body topped by a persistent small white head.
In long: Nose is unmistakably bretty, quite a brett-bomb actually that mingles well with the rest of the beer aromas, wild scented flowers, wild coniferous, wild many things. Quite an inviting aroma for the wild beer lover even if a bit on the perfumy side of things. Taste follows trough. Grainy dry cookies swimming in a yeast mixture that has a clean and very wild character (no drity barnyard here or horse blanket). Wild flowers and garden flower petals, a bit of girly persumy thing going on. My fresh bottle had a little bit too much residual sugars but it was all fixed with my 8 months old bottle. Body is very fluffy with an abundant expansive carbonation. With the discreet malt and dominant yeast, this is truly a beer for the wild yeast lover. An excellent wild ale, and I love to say Brettanomyces Bruxellensis when I language a rating because you are think I is good with vocabularizing.

lesifflebiere (1201) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013
Belle couleur blonde légèrement orangée, très petit col de mousse, arômes épicés et poivrés, ainsi que fruités, notamment les pêches et les mangues. En bouche, les levures sauvages se distinguent mais sont relativement à l’arrière-plan ; cependant, les saveurs puissantes et variées, complexifient un breuvage intense mais pas envahissant. Une belle représentante du genre, qui mérite grandement qu’on s’y attarde.

Fred82 (2114) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 28, 2012
500ml bottle from Le Monde des Bières.
Appearance : Dark yellow with small foamy head. Some lacing.
Aroma : Rich and rustic brett with flowery and slightly spicy hops. Barnyard with very light tropical notes. Light honey. Light citrusy tart notes.
Taste : Strong brett with some malt. Very light caramel notes. Herbal hops with floral notes. Finish brett with resinous notes. Light heaviness on the finish coming from the bitterness and the brett.
Palate :Soft but fizzy carbonation.
Overall : Quite interesting. The nose is absolutely stunning with the great brett notes. quite complex brett profile with nice hops. Taste is not as elegant IMHO. I think the bitterness is too heavy with the rather big malt and the brett. It limits the drinkability of what could have been a great session Belgian Wild Ale. Still the nose is really nice and it’s really worth a try. Boquebière is starting to get quite impressive with wild yeast and I can’t wait to see how good they will get.
