sarro (122) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUL 11, 2011
Bottle shared by Luk13 &/or Julien at our big JP tasting. Thanks for visiting guys! Labeled a "strong ale" but easily reviewed as a barrel aged saison, Dulcis Succubus poured with a nice, clean 1.5 finger head on top of a light amber, copper tinted color. I got wine, oak, and what seemed to be a whisky-like note on the nose. Taste included tons of oak, dry grape, and vanilla which all seemed to linger on past the finish. Some mustiness, brett, and a little pepper are present as well. This beer was one of the highlights of the tasting we had and I could easily drink a bottle to myself. Love the label too.

Bottle generously shared at the RBSG grand tasting. Pours a hazy iced tea. Aroma has fruity notes of peaches and lemon with moderate levels of brett. Flavor is lemony with a slight soapiness. More sweet caramel in the finish to go with tart lemon. Nice beer.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 6, 2011
There’s almost a white wine-like mustiness of grapes in the nose along with pleasant spicy, peppery and woody notes and plenty of tropical and citrus fruits. Hazy wet straw coloured body is topped by a generous and lasting, fine bubbled white head that leaves some lace on the sides of the glass. Flavour offers everything the aroma suggests and blends them all so well. Very refined. Wonderful interplay of various fruit flavours, some light grainy and herbal notes and the light spiciness especially in the long finish. Medium body with pleasantly strong but soft-bubbled carbonation. Really soft and enjoyable. Tulip glass. Cellar temperature. Bottle. Merci Martin!

Haha a Canadian Sour, yeah i ate those words. Bottle shared by the Montreal Crew specifically not sure which one brought it but i have to imagine Dany had his hands on this, which made me wonder was this another evil joke of a beer or something special. Pours a hazy chardonnay like body with a copper tone and large full white rocky head with both good retention and lacing. The aromatic character is slow to drift through the full pillow of white head. Slowly a herbal wild grape skin tone. Chardonnay notes, this is soft and herbal with a kiss of refreshing white grape tones and and brettanomyces. Light spicy pepper y tones tickle the carbonation and your palate. A nice drying fresh finish. Super complex without being over bearing in any aspect of the beer, truly world class. Thank you for sharing.
