Marheb (1940) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 5, 2014
Un assemblage alléchant et complexe qui laisse briller des notes de chlorophylle, carambole, citron, foin et levure. Magistrale élégance.

Fred82 (2113) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 29, 2013
2011 vintage. 750ml bottle from IPB. Clear pale amber with small head. Nose pretty woody and tannic within barnyard notes. Light acidity and tartness. Malty notes with some wheat. Taste slightly acidic with wheat. Nice wood spices. Finish wood bitters with citrusy tartness and some barnyard funk. Really nice palate, perfect carbonation, fairly lively but not too strong. Lively but smooth as the same time. Awesome palate. Not the most expressive nose and not an in your face type gueuze but really well made. Reminds me of the Girardin black label. Amazingly delicate finish

Wow, what a disappointment. No body. It cleans your mouth for a few seconds and then disappears immediately. Nothing good.

Cider, rhubarb, custard, pee, smoke... this drink is mental - once tasted never forgotten. I had dreams about it ever since

larsga (6120) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 24, 2013
Biggish offwhite head. Hazy deep yellow body with strong carbonation. Funky fruity wooden aroma with earthy notes. Dryish-acidic, and faintly sweet, mealy wooden barnyard taste with metallic notes. Mid-bodied. Sharpish mouthfeel. Bitter-acidic earthy barnyard and metal aftertaste with fruity mealy waxy notes. Not bad at all, but a bit harsh and bitter. (0.75l bottle, from wine monopoly, web order.)

Gerbeer (1662) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 21, 2013
750 ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy gold with full head that dissipates quickly. Aromas of leather, barnyard, old apples, and stoned fruit. Flavors of leather, dried apricots, limes, cork and old white wine. Sharp, and well carbonated, but also dry and non offensive. Excellent
