Bière couleur de miel, à peine voilée et coiffée d’un col mousseux couleur de crème. De beaux arômes de sarrasin, de fleurs et d’agrumes. Légèrement amère avec une pointe d’acidité. Elle est bien lisse, de corps honnête et très effervescente. Elle se termine sur une pointe d’acide et de francs arômes.

500ml bottle from Bières et Délices. July 2015 bottle. 8%. Aroma: sour cherries, orange blood, green apples. App: hazy golden, small white head, creamy on the sides and middle. Awesome thick lacing. Taste and palate: medium body, fruity, medium high carbonation, vinous, medium sweetness, light acidity finish. Overall: great! We can taste the Belgian signature but aged in red wine barrels which give it a nice vinous touch. Really liked it. Maybe would have liked a bit less carbonation which prevents us from detecting every goodness in this beer but still, this is awesome. Great job BW!

Boutip (5476) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 20, 2014
Bottle: Poured a clear light yellow color ale with a large pale white head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of light Bretty notes with some light tart notes with funky ester. Taste is also dominated by Bretty notes with some light tart notes with a light wine finish. Body is light with excellent carbonation. Very enjoyable with good complexity while retaining some drinkability.

330ml bottle from Broue Ha Ha in Gatineau, Quebec. Golden in colour with a large lingering white head, good lacing. The aroma is of grapes, floral, some wood. The flavour is moderately acidic, apples and grapes, lemons and some sweetness as well. Finishes only slightly warming, lingering sourness.

HippyHop (548) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 2, 2014
This is definitely a tough one to rate for a newb like me. Nose is...definitely complex. Cherry, oak, earthy, funky yeast, light grain, but there’s also a fair bit of nail polish remover masking it all. Taste is sour and acidic, but balanced with a fair bit of sweetness. White wine elements. Sour, earthy finish. I don’t think my mouth knows quite what to make of this stuff.

dandeman (742) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 22, 2014
Un nez acidulé de petites cerises rouges et surettes accompagné de vinaigre de vin rouge et de subtiles notes de chêne. Un olfactif acidulé mais somme toute agréable et surtout très puissant. Le visuel est doré avec beaucoup de particules. La mousse est d’une épaisseur parfaite, très crémeuse et persistante, tout en laissant de belles traces sur le verre. L’attaque est acidulée et effervescente avec le retour des fruits sauvages tel les cerises et les petits fruits surettes. Le vin rouge démontre également sa présence mais en mode vinaigre. Quelques sous notes d’orange et de citron sont également présentes. En bouche, elle présente une effervescence marquée, un équilibre à point et une rondeur en demi-teinte. Le tout se passe dans l’acidité et le sucré. Bonne complexité des saveurs. Bière très agréable à boire mais très acidulée aussi.

milara (77) - Ste-Thérèse, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 23, 2014
Des arômes puissants et complexes de fruits pâles et de levures rustiques. On ne se tanne pas d’essayer de deviner toutes sa complexité. En bouche, c’est une texture onctueuse qui ramène le côté fruité de la bière avec un coté acide et tanin, bien équilibré par le sucre et le pétillement. Ça me fait pensé à la Dixième des Trois Mousquetaire, mais en version raison blanc plûtot que cerises noirs. C’est intéressant, car le procédé de fabrication est complêtement différent. Ici, c’est le vieillissement d’un an en fût de chêne contenant du vin qui amène le tanin fruité. Excellent.

330 ml bottle. hazy golden straw color. pear color. very small bubles with a great head (tulip glass)smells pear,apples, sour notes and honey. wow tastes unique!! alcohol very hidden, very well balanced flavors, pear taste, feels like a white wine (a good one) the fruits are dominants no real bitterness and there is a ’’fat’’ factor to it(margarine). not crisp at all which is very nice for that beer and a spicy aftertaste. really innovative have it a try!! cheers

Hazy golden color. Chalky white . Very oak, vanilla cream . Light body, very oaky, sour, dry, lemon and oranges. Great depth, hides the ABV very well.

ametras (1034) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 29, 2013
330ml bottle. Clear golden liquid with a foamy white head that doesn’t last. Aroma is acid and fruity with red wine characteristics. Vinegar, grapes, apples, plum, honey, vanilla and spices. Taste is oaky and fruity with a nice alcohol warmth. Light body, sparkly carbonation. Slight sour and bitter finish. Very nice.
