Sask89 (398) - Regina, Saskatchewan, - JAN 11, 2013
Pours a clear golden yellow colour with a huge foamy white head. Aroma is predominately of herbs and spice, with subtle citrus fruit scents. Taste is mildly sweet throughout with not much bitterness to it at all. Lighter body, thin mouth feel and average carbonation. Overall a very nice beer.

dandeman (451) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 26, 2014
Évaluation no. 125 Août 2011 Cuvée 2010. Un nez avec beaucoup de banane. De couleur blonde, très claire, une mousse très généreuse et persistante. En bouche: banane, orange, fraises framboises en attaque. Les malts caramélisés ressortent en finale. Superbe complexité

Bottle (750 ml). 2011 vintage. Hazy golden/orange with a frothy quickly diminishing off-white head and decent lacing. Aroma is of champagne yeast, cider-like notes, fruits, Belgiumness, malt and floral notes. Taste is also very fruity with some spiciness, cider-like notes again and a fun warming finish. Medium body. Lively carbonation. Nice beer! Better than the Malheur Brut bottle I have tried (but it was skunky...). Very nice celebration beer!

lesifflebiere (1027) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2013
Blonde odorante, très pétillante et veloutée, elle a toutes les qualités du champagne (doux fruité, sucrée mais bien équilibrée) sans les petits agacements (acidulé, mince). C’est une bière copieuse, ronde, qui semble charmer le buveur à chaque gorgée, rappelant parfois sa soeur Lupulus pour son côté triple houblonnée, mais ayant sa personnalité propre. Une incontournable malheureusement trop rare.

BiereLuc (765) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 21, 2013
(version 2012 - 11% d’alcool) Jaune paille avec des reflets dorés, une belle coiffe de mousse et une effervescence frénétique. Au nez, c’est fruité et levuré (le parfum me rappelle celui de la Dominus Vobiscum Triple). En bouche, les fruits s’expriment (poire, pêche et peut-être un peu de mangue?). Le lien avec le champagne est évident, surtout sur le plan de la sensation (pétillement, mouth-fill...). Du grand art!

Martinus (2630) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 8, 2012
Light orange golden beer, white head. Sweet malty aroma, spicy yeast, fruity esters, quite a lot of candy, banana. Light bitter, sweet malty flavour. Quite fizzy, champagne like. Malty finish with lots of fruity esters.
Not bad, not bad at all. But it does feel a bit like a cheap champagne, and I imagine that’s not quite the idea the brewer had in mind.
(Sample from 75cL bottle @ Modeste Bier Festival ’12)

6/X/2012 - 75cl bottle @ Modeste Bierfestival (Antwerpen) - BB: n/a (2012-1115)

Little cloudy orange beer, aery white head, unstable, little adhesive. Aroma: very fruity, peaches, melon, sweet, white candi sugar, yeast, bit dusty, overripe banana. MF: soft carbon, medium to full body. Taste: sweet start, candi sugar, ripe banana, some spices, bit peppery, chillies, soem alcohol. Aftertaste: sweet, yeasty, banana, little bitter, citrus, (candied) orange peel, alcohol, some spices (cloves?). Alas, not impressed. :-(

77ships (3313) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 7, 2012
75 cl. bottle sampled @ Modeste 2012 - apparently they do the whole Champagne process in house because shipping back and forth to France would be to expensive, brewed with Champagne yeast - bottle is slowly foaming once opened, the Champagne yeast is lively - dense bubbles in the white head, body looks bit Champagne like - spritzy nose, ester heavy, orange rinds, champagne alcohol coming through, yeast - light Champagne booze coming through in the taste, heavy on esters, the yeast, spice full, floral - carb. heavy, aggressive - once highly critical of the style, this one I can admire - big hit with the company, non-beergeeks, every day drinkers, one took a bottle home, this impresses easily all pallets, good stuff

Sour citrus aroma. Pale orange colour. Malty, sparkling, soft and somewhat sweet.
