[3802-20110630] Bottle. Floral soap yeast aroma has some hints of baby talcum powder. Clear, orange body with a long lasting foamy white head. More floral biscuit yeast in the flavour with a hint of toasted dough. Medium body is bubbly. Good, though uncomfortably pricey. (7/3/7/4/14) 3.5

2011-06-30. Crisp golden body with a modest foamy white head. 3+ Sweet malty aroma has yeasty overtones and doughy biscuity notes. Light alcohol character present. 7+ Flavour is similar, pale malt with biscuity caramel malt accents up front, brief fruit in the middle finishes dry with a decent amount of alcohol prescence. Impression of a triple with more biscuity caramel malt character. Fairly effervescent average plus bodied palate suits it. 3+ Enjoyable. Bottle at Volo, Toronto

Bottle at volo. Light brown with small white head. Very carbonated. Very unique taste. I haven’t tasted anything like it. Kind of bready with slight dry finish.

bottle generously shared by Kyle at our mini-tasting at AZ wine during RBWG. This stuff poured a bright gold with a tall frothy white head. Aroma is slightly acidic with citrus fruits and dry champagne yeast. Flavor was very bright and effervescent pale malts with a bit of fruitiness from the yeast ending dry. One of the best Brutes I have had.

Bouteille 750ml titrant 11% d’alcool. De couleur dorée et claire. Nez de levures fruitées (agrumes, léger d’abricots et de pommes, traces de pêches et de bananes) et épicées (clou de girofle, notes de coriandre), de pain, de céréales fraîches, moyen de houblon floral et herbeux (herbes fraîches) avec de faibles traces de sucre bonbon. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et croustillant ainsi qu’une texture crémeuse. Goût de levures fruitées (agrumes, moyen de pommes, notes d’abricots et de poires, faibles traces de pêches) et épicées (moyen de clou de girofle, traces de coriandre) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de céréales fraîches, un moyen goût de pain ainsi que de faibles traces de sucre bonbon. Parallèlement, l’on retrouve une légère amertume asséchante de houblon herbeux (herbes fraîches), floral et aux faibles notes terreuses jusqu’en finale où l’on retrouve également des notes épicées (poivre très doux) et d’alcool doux. Post-goût moyen-long et sec, léger-moyen amer de houblon floral et herbeux avec un léger goût fruité (pelures de pommes, zest d’agrumes)

Sample from 750 ml bottle shared by saavy1982. Pours a clear golden color with a huge bubbly white head. The aroma is dry champagne yeast, mild funk, fruity, floral with some background pale malts. The flavor emphasizes the champagne yeast, tart, light fruits, floral, dry, spritzy mouth feel. This was a delightful change of pace from many of the other big beers running around. The 10% is well hidden.

750mL at RBSG Philly. Thanks to glouglouburp. The pour is a clear golden with a healthy, bright, white head. Nose has the sweet Belgian yeast used on the Lupulus with fresh orange and lemon. Taste is honey, sweet orange, bitter and fresh potpourri medley. Sweet on the palate but also spicy, rindy, rich. Candi sugar present but no cloying or sickly sweetness or syrupiness. Very effervescent. Beautiful. Probably would become a top beer for my roommate.
