Brewed (with help from our great friend Jean of Tired Hands!) on the day of my grandmother’s passing (Norma), this is an inspired Biere de Mars fermented entirely in oak and inoculated with our house spontaneous culture.

Mr_Abner (221) - Michigan, USA - MAR 28, 2015
2013 vintage. Pours a copper color with a modest head. Smells earthy, sour, oak, yeast....wish I could better describe this one. Taste: assertive sourness; oak, sweet malts as well, but the tartness is dominant. Medium bodied, below average carbonation; dry, tart finish.

Bottle into a snifter. Nice color, a deep scarlet. One finger of dense sand-colored head pops away quickly, leaving behind spotty lace. The resident microflora did their work here. Balsamic vinegar, barnyard funk, cherry, flashes of toast and rose petals in the aroma. Steady tartness in the flavor. Not too big, not too small. Rocket pop sweetness, a little caramelized sugar, touch of cherry, underlying barnyard funk, pithy tartness on the sides of the tongue at the swallow, touch of oak, a hint of baked bread. Medium-light body, heartburn from the tartness, gentle carbonation tickles the tongue. Tartness builds as the end of the glass nears. Kind of a cross between Biere de mars and Flanders red. Interesting blend.

sebletitje (8022) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 29, 2014
75cl bottle courtesy of and shared with Sarro and Omgrich. Thanks for sharing it Kyle! 2012 anno, ltd# 1200. Bottle# ? De couleur acajou, col épais crémeux blanc-cassé. Arôme pointe sur un léger fruité rouge avec en retrait une note mielleuse qui adouci les effluves. Léger malté cara, avec un rétro boisé légèrement suret. Palais au caractère rustique avec une once de fruité rouge (venant peut-être des levures?). Note un léger impact du miel qui offre une petite rondeur à chaque gorgée sans pour cela être trop présent. Le profil boisé donne un fini légèrement épicé qui se marie bien avec le côté sauvage des levures. Ceci étant on peu continuer de débattre sur la nomenclature cachée derrière une Farmhouse. Parle-t-on de saison de bière de garde, ici on parle de bière de mars. En l’état on reste dans une interprétation américaine du style hennuyer.
