draft @ Moeder Lambic. Dorée type paille, col blanc. Superbe arôme alliant à la fois douceur et amertume. On y retrouve la levure mais aussi pas mal d’épices, ainsi que un aspect fruité type bubblegum. La dégustation offre la même surprise en bouche. Ayant déjà pu goûter aux bières brassées selon les vieilles traditions (difficile d’en avoir une recette précise vu que on en a très peu d’écrits de l’époque) je m’attendais à une bière de type gruit donc plus axée sur cet aspect végétal/ancien, de bières brassées sans houblon qui est parfois difficile à approcher. Cette dernière est facile à déguster, une levure et des épices confèrent un palais intéressant que j’ai trouvé plus doux que épicés. Par moment, j’avais souvenir de réglisse ou anis, fruité également avec un peu d’abricot et de miel pour la douceur. Malt reste discret et je garde en bouche ce fini un peu bubblegum, peut-être un sucre candi?

Boutip (5898) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 20, 2011
Bottle: Poured a hazy blonde color ale with a super large pure white foamy head with good retention and some great lacing. Aroma consists of light funky yeast with very sweet malt base. Taste is also dominated by a sweeter then expected malt base with an interesting yeast profile. Body is quite full with great bottle conditioning and great carbonation with no apparent alcohol. Well brewed though too sweet for my taste and not as much farmhouse notes as I had expected coming from this brewer.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Crisp palate. Somewhat wheat beer like. But only traces of lemon and orange. Refreshing but hard to pin down beer. 3.5

Opaque amber beer. Light, frothy and fairly dry. Initial bloom of subtle ginger. Then something floral and a trace of orange. Creamy finish with bitterness coming to the fore.

Good solid beer. Hard to pick the genre; ale-like with a sweet note that I can’t really place. But it’s nice. Crap note eh!

FlacoAlto (4152) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - DEC 27, 2010
Sampled from the tap, July 2010 at Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas
The beer arrives with a one-finger thick, creamy, off-white colored head, while the beer is a hazed, pale gold / yellow color. The aroma is herbal and hop like up front (even if it is gruit derived), and has a pale, hay-like grain character to it. The nose reminds me of the scent of orange blossoms, sweet clove in the finish, grassy coriander and that Dupont yeast mustiness. There is certainly a very herbal, hop-like character to this note.

Sweet, honey like pale grain flavors are found up front, while the finish has an almost menthol like, herbaceous bitterness that makes this end with a very dry character; this is especially true when coupled with the typical, musty, sort of cotton ball like Dupont-yeast phenolics (that aren’t quite medicinal in character). A biting bitterness is noticeable at times, but others sees the honey and pale malt sweetness being a bit stronger. The beer is nicely light and quaffable and there is a lemon like flavor here as well as a nice grassy note. This is quite a nice beer, it is very much Saison like, which I will certainly never complain about.
