Looks like they’ve released some of this from the barrels and that other swarm should be an alternate entry I guess. Taster at the brewery. Zwalm Sour beer 6%

A barrel aged sour with an aroma of vinegared plums, figs and dates. Light bodied, oakey, acidic, big figs and dates fruit flavor. Very nice.

czar (7525) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 15, 2014
on tap at bateau de nuit - tasted from sample - as it needed no further attention. hazy golden-reddish pour with a decent off-white head, some retention and lacing. cherries, other berries, lactic acidity - fairly linear, bit of wood and pepper - red grapes’ soft astringency, slightly ketchupy, moderate sweetness - candied fruitiness and caramel. moderate carbonation, light body - oily, sweetish, grassy-spicy and lightly tart finish. don’t really know where this is going - so as the first batch.. inoffensive but also forgettable.
Earlier Rating: 10/1/2012 Total Score: 2.5
on tap at l’autre oeil, gatineau. dark brown with a decent beige head, good retention. bold port accents: cherries, lightly acidic, deep woody notes, roastiness and banana-vanilla. cloying. average carbonation, medium body - almost heavy, sweet finish, not that much acid here. awkward.

Brune aux reflets rouge. Très fruité. Prune. Cerise noir. Datte. Vinaigre balsamique. Caramel. Belle acidité. Pomme verte. Très belle interpretation du style.

Viper666 (3271) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 26, 2013
Dégustée en fût sur place. De couleur brune foncée et claire. Nez fruité (raisins vineux et sucrés, léger de sirop de petits fruits, notes de pruneaux et de fruits confits), de sucre bonbon, léger de bois humide avec traces de chocolat et de rôti. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement nul ainsi qu’une texture légèrement sirupeuse fruitée aux aux notes vineuses. Goût fruité sucré (raisins vineux, léger de sirop de cerises, notes de prunes et de fruits confits) et accompagné de faibles notes boisées (bois humide) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de sucre pur avec des traces de chocolat puis en finale l’on retrouve des notes d’alcool vineux. Post-goût moyen, composé d’un goût fruité (moût de raisins et de petits fruits), de résiduel sucré avec des traces d’alcool vineux. (20 février 2013)

Eructoblaster (3791) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 1, 2012
On tap at l’Autre Oeil (Aylmer, Qc). Pours an opaque dark brown body with a decent beige foamy/creamy head. Fair malty/hoppy aroma with brown sugar and candy hints. Its strange, oversweetened taste carries fruity, vineous, and bad soapy notes. Ends with a harsh sweet finish. A failure.

Sammy (11060) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 21, 2012
On tap at the brewpub. The base is the original wild ale, which would have been interesting to try by itself. However, the addition of either cherry juice or cherry puree did two countervailing things. It added taste, of which I like, a Morello cherry tartness. It took away from purity. A bourbon corn flavour right there is the aroma. A lace sheet on a brown body. Initially cuvee, sweet and acidic at the same time.

Had this on tap at St-Bock and was a bit excited to taste a Canadian lambic. Unfortunately it did not have much in common with Belgian lambics I have tasted previously. It somehow managed to be very sweet but sour at the same time with a strong medicine taste. Almost undrinkable.

SlovakSniper (4984) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 14, 2012
Un verre au Saint-Bock. Un truc présenté comme un lambic. Vraiment n’importe quoi. Un liquide qui présente une robe rouge foncée. Un anneau de mousse qui flotte avec une pauvre résilience. Un nez de cinzano et de vinaigre balsamique avec des herbes et des épices à l’italienne. Des traces chocolatées qui vont et qui viennent. Des saveurs de vin cuit avec des épices et des herbes aromatisées. Des sucres qui s’éveillent. Une bouche assez ronde avec une texture huileuse et tendancieusement liquoreuse. Des bulles présentes mais qui n’apportent aucune efficacité. Une finale sur des raisins fermentés qui sont dardés par les épices. Il me semble avoir bu quelque chose de cet acabit dans les années 80. Petit rajout à mon texte éminemment philosophique: je viens de voir que cette patente s’insère dans la grande famille des bières dites sauvages. Encore une fois, vraiment n’importe quoi.

Mondial de la bière à Montréal 2012. Arôme sucré, pas trop effervescente. En bouche, un peu de vinaigre, fruits, porto, prunes noires, oxydation forcée. Un joyeux mélange. Bonne, particulièrement en dessert.
