sweaty alcohol aroma with hints of birch, suspended sediment in a cloudy yellow body, super strong alcohol dominates with budding woodiness, not as complex as expected

Thanks to Alusmamuts!
Quite huge brew. Malty background, dried fruits, overripe fruits, toffee, nice oak touch, spicy yeasty. Lovely white wine characteristics. Astringent, anesthetic finish.
Light sweetish sourness with light bitterness. Well balanced and enjoyable brew.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2015 0.75 bottle. Hazy, very dark amber color and a small, persistent head. Aroma of fermented fruits, sour apples, some sweetness, champagne. Taste is sweet and sour, kind of like a fruit wine. Medium body, slick texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is even sourer than the rest. Overall the beer is much different and much worse than Bush de Nuits; I suspect a spoiled batch.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2015 Rating #1800. 750 ml corked and caged bottle. 2013 vintage. Complex aroma is dusty brett, lemony, oak, vanilla, caramel, molasses, raisins. Pours muddy orange-brown with a thick beige head with excellent retention. Taste is sweet, boozy, oaky, fruity esters, savory, paint thinner. Oxidized; I think this has been sitting on the shelf for awhile. Foamy mouthfeel. Not bad, I’m glad I tried it, but i’ll never buy it again. It’s a little too boozy, too foamy and too oxidized. Not worth the obscene amount I paid for it.

750 ml bottle- Thanks Poisoneddwarf- Pours extremely hazy golden with thin off white head. Aroma is brett, very citrusy, barnyard funk, extremely complex. Taste is funky, fruity, a little overly malty, dry bitter finish, oaky, a bit too boozy.

As the Bush de Nuits, another great beer from Dubuisson!
Hazy amber colour, with almost no head. Smell is alcoholic, with wonderful nutty notes, and wood too, almost a liqueur.
Taste is also nutty, sweet, fruity, raisins, wine notes and woody tannin. Great. Full bodied, absolutely. Amazing beer.
