jeremyh70 (1025) - Missouri, USA - MAR 1, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2014 Compared a 2010 and 2014 bottle side by side. Fresh bottle was a mostly clear golden orange with a persistent white head that settled to a film. 2010 bottle was very murky amber with same white head that settled to a ring and dollop. Aroma of 2014 has Belgian yeast fruitiness and some caramel sweetness along with slight coriander and phenolic note. 2010 aroma has tart apple and pear with a vinyl quality and hint of grain. Taste of fresh bottle has Belgian yeast fruitiness, clove, some toastiness and mild pepper. 2010 bottle has a mild tartness with some faint lemon and apple fruitiness, some grain and some cooked vegetable flavor. Mouthfeels are different also with new bottle being more creamy and full bodied while the older bottle is more crisp and carbonated with a lighter body. I much preferred the newer bottle to the older one and really enjoyed the 2014’s flavors. 2013 Pours a dark golden orange with big soapy head that sticks around and great lacing. Aroma of juicy fruit barnyard and clove spiciness. Taste starts with some sweet fruit like apricots, then the funkiness sets in mid palate with the clove and pepper. Decent amount of bitterness and a phenolic flavor. Medium bodied with an oily texture and lively carbonation. Finishes dry. Good but a bit too much of the phenolic flavor to make it a favorite. ---Jeremy H

Just too much funkiness for this guy... Pours a slightly orange-yellow with thin white top - looks okay. Smell is pungent - is this bret? overwhelming the Belgian yeast and zesty, spiciness. Flavor follows similarly, eventually by the end of the bottle getting used to the funk, but never fully enjoying. Mouthfeel is as expected. Won’t get this one again.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy pale amber with a fluffy white head. Aroma is yeast, caramel, spice, and coriander. Taste follows nose with faint notes of funk, plums and bubblegum. Finish is a little on the dry side. Very mild bitterness. It’s different, but nice. Pleasant drinking.

fhoublon (404) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2016
Bouteille de 765ml (cuvée 2014) achetée dans un IGA. Dégustée en mars 2016. Bière blonde dorée foncée, limpide. Mousse beaucoup, col blanc très épais et persistant. Assez effervescente, bulles moyennes. Odeur de sucre. Un peu forte, assez sucrée, un peu amère. Saveur de céréales un peu gazonnées et de foin. Un peu biscuitée, goûte un peu les fruits tropicaux (ananas, mangue). Bonne mais pas comparable aux meilleures belges. Manque de raffinement, un peu trop sucrée.

Tasted at trading Post in South Sea Port NY. Good aroma but a little irony. Taste is good but not excellent.

sir__v (1756) - Lille, FRANCE - APR 2, 2016
Bottle from Saveur-Biere.com - Color: clear golden blond beer with small carbonation and small white foam. Smell: fruity domination and yeast notes. Sweet malt presence. Taste: medium body with nice fruity and candied fruity taste. Finish with yeast. Good attenuation. But too fruity for me and some wild yeast notes... I didn’t like it. Aftertaste: sweet and caramel finish with candied fruits.
