Shared a sample from same bottle with the brewers in July. Blond hazy pour with a swirl of the lees. Great sour aroma is very pure, like intense guava, acidic and earthy with lemon and dry apricot. Good feel. bit of caramel. Nice!

On tap at the 12th anniversary of the brewpub, slight cloudy blond hue, with almost no head, mild wild yeaty, bretty, funky, barnyard nose with some faint winey grapes, lemon, green apple sour notes, with some hints of tartness in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeaty, bretty, earthy funky, sour character of green apples, juicy citrusy, with some faint rhubarb tartness undertones, leading towards an acidic citrusy, lactic, tart finish.

In short: A straightforward tart funky blonde ale. Very sharp, not very complex.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Almost clear blonde body topped by a very small white head
In long: Nose is has mild funky and barnyard notes. Taste is straightforward for the style. Grapefruity type of tartness and acidity. Light sour grapes notes. Short but very sharp finish. This is a tasty sharp beer, more a sipper than a thirst quencher. I preferred the fruit version (Hérétique aux Mûres) which was more sessionable. One of the too many beers I had on this night. But Jesus died for my sins and the Beastie Boys fought for my right to party and I have to honour those sacrifices.

Lubiere (10439) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 29, 2010
A light golden ale with almost no head. A nice and smooth lambic like aroma, with ground cherries, cork, lingering Brett. In mouth, a nice light lacting taste with meaty cherries, dirt and soil, quite nice and tranquil. On tap at DDC 12th Anniversary, Sept. 11 2010.

on tap at DdC. pours a pale orange-yellow with a thin white head that quickly dissipates. aroma is sour and fruity, mainly berries. this beer is wonderful tasting. it is sour but not too intense, and yet dry. it’s sweet but not overly, and is refreshing as hell. this is one of the most dangeorus beers i have had in the sense that the alcohol is so well hidden. goes down like water, in other words, but is 7.5% ABV. the mouthfeel is this beer’s biggest downside, in my opinion. it is a bit too watery and thin. still an excellent beer that i would order every chance i had.

Appearance : Light hazy yellow. No lacing.
Aroma : Lactic with lots of brett. Nice fruits and light hops. Fruity but a bit too lactic for my taste. Some oak sourness. Some grapes.
Taste : Fruity with some brett. Quite lactic. Some grapes. Soft carbonation.
Overall : interesting sour ale. Quite lactic (a bit too much for my taste). Nice fruits and brett.

Wish this one would be in bottles... Sour, moreover undescribable brettanomyces taste. Berries, cloudberries, blackberries... Smooth, velvet body. Really Nice !

UPDATED: SEP 17, 2011 Tap at brewpub. I’ll have to try again to describe the taste more precisly... Somewhat velvety, almost liquorish texture. And an amazing mixture of fruity, bitter, sour and lightly sweet flavor. It was the first time ever I ordered the same glass twice at this divine brewpub. So... ADDED: 400ml bottle, 2009 aged version: horrible yeast clogs like I rarely saw. The oak-age effect is really obvious. Maybe just a litlle thicker and more brett oriented, so fruitier, then the unaged version. Amazing beer.
