UPDATED: AUG 7, 2014 Apologies for my own feelings and sensitivities but they’ve been insulted by this beer that is overwhelmed by enteric flavours. Drain pour. This is the same beer people are loving and raving about here in the same room. To me, this beer’s very strong bathroom aromas are insurmountable. I prefer beers with Brett and lactic acid bacteria character and not dominated by a wall of enteric.

Sample@Quintessence. Dégustation super délicieuse. Elle offre un nez assez complexe ample développant des senteurs de rasin rouge, de barrique avec une amertume herbacée et une pointe de levure argileuse. La bouche est super bien équilibrée entre les malts, le pinot et l’acidé: le tout envahi le palais avec une égale bonheur. Le corps malté assez doux et rond goûte le raisin rouge suret accompagné de saveurs boisé se finissant sur une amertume surette minérale avec une belle longueur. Du pipi de Jésus! J’en reveux!!

Yorker (1190) - Herning, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2014
75 cl bottle @ home. Pours dark red with an off-white head that leaves no lacing. Aroma and flavour are red berries, grapes, vinegar, oak, red wine, and sweet malt - with a tart finish.

on cask @ La Capsule, Lille - FR. Color: clear red beer with no carbonation and medium white foam. Smell: acid nose with grapes and red fruits as raspberry. Taste: nice sour taste with good balance of fruit. Really tasty and with a good balance. Not so sour. Aftertaste: fruity taste, strawberry and raspberry.

Shared bottle with a friend. Poured a light purple red colour with a non lasting white head. Full aroma of grapes, apples, tart, oak, vineous notes, Brett, light carbonated, with a full sour mouthfeel combined with some sweet fruity grapes. Very complex! Awesome beer! Delicious

czar (4359) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 27, 2014
pours hazy burgundy-purple with a tall frothy off-white-purplish head, good retention and lacing. tart cherries and appreciable funk - kind of like plastered cherries, reminiscent of krieks; light acidity - lactic, citric and quite acetic too - ruins a bit my pleasure, very astringent and vinous, fruity phenolic esters, pepper and other spices. lively carbonation, light body - never watery, dry, fairly tart and grassy-spicy finish. very nice and tasty but the best cantillon fruit lambic.

Bottle at Jeremy’s very sour tasting. Thanks Matt. Lots of red grape and sour. Doesn’t have the funk or acidity I was expecting.

Slight grape, wetting oak, slight pond water, wonderful sour with oak receiving a second run in the end. Fabulous example.
