Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 8, 2010
Pours with a clear, pale yellow body topped by a white, medium thick head with a good amount of lacing. It’s slightly sweet with grassy hop notes, slight brett notes and vinious notes. Light to medium bodied and well carbonated.

Stoned99 (962) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2016
750ml 2013 bottle from trade with Don a little while ago. Aroma: great oaky, vanilla, lemony, woody. App: cloudy dark pale / light golden, minimal white head. Taste and palate: thin body well backed with a slightly lively carbonation, moderate tart dry acidity finish. Overall: pretty good. This one aged pretty good. I didn’t get to try a fresh one but this one is really oaky and woody, not too sweet, really well balanced and tastes fresh and refreshing. Really interesting in the good way. Glad I waited a bit so it could develop even more.

tom10101 (4789) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 11, 2016
Bottle (750 ml) shared at tasting. Clear pale golden with a small white head, ok retention, leaving a bubbly ring of foam and little lacing. Flavors of peaches, white wine, oak, vanilla, mild spiciness, brettanomyces, mangoes and grains. Taste is gently tart and features some oak and winey character. Medium body, maybe a bit thin. Moderate carbonation. Vinous mouthfeel. Tropical finish. Pretty easy drinking Sour Ale with a rather mild and peachy profile. Interesting oak and white wine features. Good.

mathieuc (2952) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 8, 2016
Pours a cloudy golden with a thin white film on top that doesn’t leave much lacing. Nose is of fresh mint and fruits. Taste follows the same pattern with fruits, oak and white wine. Moderate body and carbonation with a lightly vinous mouthfeel. I thought it was alright, I would certainly pick up a fresh bottle if given the occasion.

SlovakSniper (4610) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 6, 2016
Robe jaune pâle avec petite tête blanche qui tente de s’accrocher. Au nez, le vin blanc et le bois côtoient effet suret, citronnade, fruits tropicaux, mangues, bonnes bactéries, paille. Le corps de moyenne densité est traversé par des bulles modérées à douces. La finale montre une saveur de noix de coco (chêne).

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2015
Draft at Capones in Norristown, PA. Pours a hazy pale golden orange color with golden straw edges and a 1.5 finger white head that quickly settles into a lasting ring. Sporadic streaks of lace left behind. Odd aroma with a mix of lactic funk, tropical fruit and chemicals. Smells sort of like sun tan lotion with lots of wood/oak and coconut. Like a wild ale dosed with coco butter. Medium bodied with a really strange amalgam of flavors. Tart with strong citrus acidity, sourdough bread and lactic funk cut by a strong earthy wood presence that gives off a strong coconut milk flavor. Dry and somewhat astringent finish. Not a bad beer just a very weird combination of flavors.

bluejacket74 (1723) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - OCT 17, 2015
750 ml caged and corked bottle, 2014 vintage. Served in a St. Bernardus chalice, the beer pours a slightly hazy golden/orange color with about an inch creamy off-white head that stuck around for a very long time. There’s a decent amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like citrus, tropical fruit, white wine, peaches and oak. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there’s the addition of cantaloupe, apricot and earthiness. It’s really tart and tasty! Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s creamy, smooth and easy to drink with a good amount of carbonation. I thought it was pretty good, I liked it more the longer I drank it. Definitely worth trying if you see a bottle, I know I wouldn’t mind buying this again. $20.99 a bottle at Party Source.
