Boutip (4654) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 12, 2010
Bottle: Poured a cloudy dirty beige color ale with a huge light dirty brown color head with great retention and some very good lacing. Aroma of funk and farmyard is quite intense with some light apricot and some light spices. Taste is quite complex to describe though yeast is properly the main component that produces a very funky taste with light fruit notes of apricot and candy. Body is full with limited filtration and great carbonation. Very well brewed and somewhat disappointed that I can’t find this more easily.

Tap at Vices et Versa MTL. Very tart and fruity, surprising, almost a Flemish sour. Tart apricot and tang of citrus, aroma vaguely earthy.

lefossoyeur (449) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 19, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2013 On tap at Vice & Versa, july 19. Slight haze on this golden-orange pour, with absolutely no head. Nose is funky, lactic, apples and barnyard. Medium body, almost totally flat, nice lemony flavors backed by some funkiness but it finishes a bit hollow and sweet. Something milky, lactic in the end. Not bad, but would have been really better with some carbonation. 31st august update : tap at Bieres & Saveurs, aged version. Wow, what a contrast with my previous rating. Nice funkyness with light brett presence, body is thinner, dryer, than previous sample. Super interesting bretty saison character. Loved this one with aging! Previous rating 3.2 , now, 3,9

kevd193213 (861) - Hope Valley, Rhode Island, USA - MAY 8, 2010
On draught. Light copper cloudy pour with a generous off white head. Aroma of citrus fruit and that distinct farmhouse aroma. Great taste of yeast, citrus, and barnyard funk with a sharp finish.

Travlr (9998) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 15, 2010
Draught at Churchkey, recommendation from Sam. Clear orange, white edge head, good lacing. Aroma is sour orange peel and bubblegum, very nice. Taste is disappointing, sour start followed by unbalanced sweet bitterness. Oh well.
