THIS ENTRY IS FOR BARREL-AGED Buteuse only. It is only available in 750 ml bottles. 375, 500 and 650 ml bottles are made of the regular Buteuse. This version has been aged in oak barrels which had previously held an apple brandy from the Michel Jodoin cidery. One of its fermentations was also done with brettanomyces.

"Cette bière exceptionnelle, fermentée grâce à trois levures différentes, a vieillie quatre mois en fût de chêne américain ayant hébergé le brandy de pomme de la cidrerie Michel Jodoin. On y retrouve un côté vanillé, épicé, torréfié et animal. S’y mélange aux effluves d’alcool chaud le caramel brûlé, la pêche, l’abricot et le tabac frais. Une sérieuse bière de dégustation!"

750 ml bottle from Peluso, enjoyed with a meal. Nice apple flavours, fruity, fresh, the alcool is not to present. As the beer became warmer, caramel tones became more present and alcool also. At 20$ a bottle this had serious potential to disappoint but it did not. I would buy again. A special beer.

Tap at Moeder Lambic, 29th June 16. Pours a dark amber, good lacing, aroma is heady barrel, Brett, funk, wood. Taste is rich and complex, but way below the 10 ABV, there is cognac, wood, Brett, liquor, must. The palate is light and slick, minimal carbonation. Very nice

sebletitje (9032) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 22, 2016
Bottle sample @ RBBWG 2016, thanks Eric. Ambrée-cuivrée trouble, col fin beige. Arôme met en avant un bouquet brett, le profil Brandy reste plus secondaire avec un léger accompagnement fruits/baies des bois. Palais met de suite en avant le côté alcool, le tout garde une certaine dose aigrelette, de brett? houblonné modéré ajoutant une touche d’amertume avec une levure persistante en fin de bouche avec une rondeur fruité baies. Brandy ajoute un subtil côté de barrique qui n’est pas désagréable mais renforce la nation de chaleur en bouche. Belge de caractère.

0.75 l bottle at RBBWG 2016 in Antwerpen. Minimally hazy, pale golden amber with a white head. Sweetish-sourish, slightly fruity aroma of white grapes, gooseberry, oak and lemon. Sweetish, slightly sourish taste of honey, white grapes, gooseberry and oak, followed by a short, moderately tart finish. Thin to medium body, slightly creamy and spritzy mouthfeel. Nice!

Thank you for sharing jefverstraete! 750 ml. bottle sampled @ RBBWG V. Hazy golden, creamy white. Nose is lightly butter with lots of sweet grains, sugar, malts, sugary thick malts, low plastic. Taste is fizzy esters, honey, candy dough, sugar, sweet warming, touch boozy, oxidized, honey, warming, caramel, solid. Quite boozy, sugary & malty body. Very monolithic, could use more complexity. Good ‘though but not exceptional, decent Belgian.
