I was actually terribly bored by this, the first beer I tried at The Festival 2013. Just a kind of generic lightly bretty clean wild ale with wisps of tartness but nothing super exciting going on. Certainly not bad, but I expected much more from DDC!.

SlovakSniper (3544) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 1, 2015
Robe jaune voilée sans véritable tête. Nez de vinaigre de pommes, d’herbes et de blé suri avec des notes citronnées très aiguisées. Goût vinaigré sans réelle complexité. Cette acidité est très peu intéressante pour mes papilles. En bouche, le corps est mort et cela n’aide certainement pas à la rendre facilement buvable. En finale, c’est encore une fois très vinaigre et plus ou moins agréable. J’imagine que ça peut plaire à certaines personnes qui aiment saigner de l’oesophage.

Bière de couleur blonde-dorée avec un mince col résistant. En bouche c’est bien balancé, bonne aciité, fruits jaune sure, pomme et herbe. Manque un peu de complexité mais une bière très interessante!

Lots going on in here. Sour and yeasty/wheaty. Plenty of sharp citrus, pine and grass notes from the hops.

patricks110 (1851) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 27, 2014
Pours a bright golden yellow with a thin soapy, bubbly white head. Huge bubbles spread to the rim and ligner a bit. The aroma is sour and tart with big acetic notes and citrus fruit notes. A lot of interesting yeast and ester notes. A bit sweet in the middle with citrus and pear fruit notes. The finish is tart, sour and dry with a musty note. A good brew but a bit monotone.

mabel (7015) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 23, 2014
[6690-20140823] Tap. Fruity wheat yeast aroma. Hazy, pale bright orange body with a quick foamy white head. Sour fruity sourdough flavour. Medium body is quite sour and chewy. Tasty. (7/3/8/4/14) 3.6

CapFlu (4680) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 28, 2014
Headless with a clouded gold body. Great tart front. Tonic, lemon, cider vinegar. Very tasty but I don't know if it's worth the $18 I paid. Purchased at Metro Liquors.

[ 75cl Bottle ][ 4oz ][ The Festival LA ][ $3 ][ Taster ][ 11.8.14 ]
>> Hazy neon straw pour with weak foam. Nose is funky, mild trash, oddies, mildew, vinegar, something like DMS, too much funk going overboard to just stinky. Taste is tangy, lemon acid, vanilla, slightly buttery, some vinegar. Palate brings some vinegar, salt. Needs some work.

Quevillon (2587) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 14, 2014
Drank on tap (14 oz) at the brewpub (16th anniversary) on Septembre 13, 2014. Creamy blonde, thin head. Herb vinegar aroma, a bit of fruity notes. Much more fruitiness in the taste, strawberry herb flavor, good sour vinegar aftertaste. An impressive blende, hard core stuff!

electrotype (303) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 9, 2014
Clairement une des bonnes bières sûres du Québec! Au nez les pommes vertes sont bien présentes et en bouche s’y ajoute la touche citronnée et acidûlée. Elle est toutefois plutôt mince et ne présente que très peu de mousse. Pas la plus complexe des bières de ce style que j’ai bues jusqu’ici, mais très raffraichissante et très satisfaisante. On en veut plus de ce style DDC!!!

neongolden (680) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 3, 2014
(On tap at the DDC tap takeover @ barVolo, Aug 23 2014) Pours very hazy gold with no head. Aroma powerfully acetic, cider vinegar with hints of orange zest and raw wheat. Palate also acetic and dominated by cider vinegar with supporting grapefruit and pear. No real yeast or grain character, just a light funk with more sour apple on the finish. Moderate mouthfeel with light prickly carb. Not much too complexity which allows the acetic acid to overwhelm a bit. I was expecting this to be more lactic but maybe my nose was off! Still a pretty good sour but didn’t blow my mind.
