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.

sarro (134) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Small pour thanks to Lushawn and his woman winnning a bottle and sharing it on the spot! Appearance is a dark golden color and the nose is light fruit, floral, some yeast and subtle funk. Taste is a refreshing mix of white wine--gewurztraminer and sauv blanc--, lemon, pear, and grass with a touch of sour. Medium body with medium carbonation. Finish on the dryer side. Reminded me a bit of Avery’s Sui Generis in some regards.

neongolden (1254) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 12, 2016
(2014 version on tap @ Warpigs HF Day, Copenhagen, May 12 2016) Pours a medium amber with almost no head. Aroma of red berries, caramel, sweet grape, stewed fruit, a sort of sweet-tart blend with some wood and funk lying over it. Flavour is sweet and kind of acidic, like a drier fortified wine, with toasty oak, bitter grain, sour grape, and a dry hay and funk barnyard character. Finish is rather tannic, dry and woody with a bit of grain, and lingering tart fruit notes. Medium body, lightly oily feel, soft carbonation. A bit hard to get into at first, with charms that reward some patience.

Franckg (1279) - 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.
