Bottle shared during RBWG. Pour is gold with a white head. Aroma shows notes of toasted malt, citrus, yeast, honey, and oak. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of apple skin and some underlying minerality. I definately like what the champagne yeast has done to the body. Silky, creamy carbonation with some floral on the backend.

Eructoblaster (3058) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 15, 2011
Bottle - 750ml. Hazy golden body with average carbonation and a huge white foamy head. Very well balanced, fresh malty/hoppy aroma with yeasty, citrusy, and honeyish hints. Alcohol is perfectly hidden. Texture is soft and taste is perfectly balanced. It carries honeyish, flowery, and herbal notes. Ends with a long, moderately warm, bittersweet finish. A lovely treat!

Clear Yellow / Blond with a large white head. Aroma is belgian-like, with fruity nose, banana, and spices. Medium body with full carbonation. Taste is flowery, little fruits and honey. Not sure if is worth the 25$ or so a bottle, but is pretty good.

Bottle thanks to Savvy1982 I believe. Pours a clear golden hue with a huge sparkling effervescent white head. The aroma is dry funky brett and some sweet fruity malts. A smooth dry flavor dominated by these Champagne yeasts, fluffy, light sweet fruit , some floral notes, sweet and spicy, but very nice. Unusual and tasty.

Le liquide a une robe blonde dorée. La mousse blanche est impeccable. Une large dentelle est observée. Au nez, le malt enrobé d’un parfum mielleux est touché par quelques fleurs sucrées. Le liquide, une fois tempéré, révèle des pointes de coriandre et de poivre blanc. Des effluves de fruits ensoleillés chatouillent les narines. Le goût est fidèle aux arômes avec de belles pointes fruitées et des houblons floraux doux et goûteux. Les épices caressent la langue avec une certaine gentillesse. L’alcool se fait sentir mais n’est pas agressif. La tenue en bouche est très plaisante et l’effervescence y est pour beaucoup : le liquide est moelleux, voire capiteux. La finale se fait sur des notes fruitées qui s’imprègnent d’une timide amertume. Dommage que cette bouteille soit si dispendieuse. Mais comme la qualité a un prix….

Pours golden yellow with a glorious white head. The aroma is very reminiscent of a good champaine. Green apple, biscuit, bay leaf, pepper, butter, and mineral. The flavor is quite subtle and complex. Green apple, mineral, biscuit, herb, honey, spice, butter, and a hint of oak. Freaking awesome.
