Franckg (1112) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 17, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2016 Bouteille indiqué sous Vintage 2013, embouteillée en février 2014 et bue après 30 mois. Robe ambrée-orangée trouble surmonté d’un col de mousse dense, blanchâtre et assez persistant. Une fine dentelle s’accroche au parois du verre. Arômes de bois, beaucoup d’effluves vineuses et autres petits fruits sûrets, vinaigre balsamique, fleurs et levures sauvages. En bouche, beaucoup de petits fruits, bois, tanins de raisins, mélange d’acidités citrique et acétique. Finale de petits fruits sûrets, bois et jus de citron. Texture légèrement huileuse et sèche, corps mince. Très bien mais niveau d’acidité peut-être un peu trop élevé.

Boutip (5856) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 18, 2016
Bottle: Poured a brown/reddish color ale with a small foamy head. Aroma of tart notes with light fruity undertones is pleasant. Taste is also a mix of tart notes with light fruity undertones and some light caramel notes with some oak notes also clearly identifiable. Body is about average with good carbonation. Not bad but I would say that the vinous and tart level is quite high for the style.

Rune (11051) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 18, 2016
Draught, vintage 2014, at WarPigs Brewpub, Hill Farmstead Day. Clear amber-red coloured body. Bubbly ring to the rim of the surface. Fair lacing. Rich semi-tart aromas of brown malts and fruits. The taste profile follows suit with caramel, green apple skins, and semi-tart fruits. Prolonged malt-fruity ending with underlying tartness. Fine bodied. Lovely (shared with KimJohansen and Skinnyviking, Copenhagen 12.05.2016).
