Des arômes intenses de citron avec des notes abricots. Un goût légèrement acide, légèrement boisé aux saveurs d’agrumes avec une moyenne amertume. Après plusieurs gorgées, l’arrière goût du vin botrytisé devient trop dominant laissant un goût assez amer. Une bière spéciale, complexe mais pas exceptionnelle.

kraddel (6189) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - SEP 30, 2016
Tap at cml. Pours unclear yellow. Good Hite head. Smell is rather dry. Malty. Not sour at all. Bit brett, but very mild. Taste is intense , honey-like sweetnzss , under a brett-forward funk. Very buttery. To a point i’d callbit dyacethyl. I trust moeders’ Taps, so i suppose it’s die to the beer ... Low carbo. This is just not good at all. Yogurthy. Not sour , had a dry, vinegar like aftertaste , that hardly feels natural either. Shamefull to call this a sour, the same category as some of the best beers out there

Bierdimpfe (349) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 29, 2016
Slightly veiled golden color with stormy activity. Frothy white 3 finger head, lasting around 15 minutes, with very strong legs. Smells like grapefruits turning into piss. Taste of flowers, citrus, grapefruits, apricot, yeast, roasted malt. Lots of sourness with low sweetness. Slick smooth medium to full body with champagne like carbonation. Medium strength finish that lingers for a while with feels of fruity citrus and a flowery yeasty bouquet. Overall an okay Saison. Unpleasant smell, decent flavors, good finish. Refreshing, yet overly yeasty and bitter. Feels a little off. Sure it feels unique, but I don’t get the hype; way better choices out there, like the delicious Saison du Tracteur.

abemorsten (3565) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - SEP 20, 2016
På kran på Taps Trondheim. Disig gyllen kropp med lys film. Nydelig frisk eple-chutney og marmelade i aromaen. Overraskende mye restsødme men likevel frisk på fruktsyrer. Litt fryseboks-is i smaken. Noe corn flakes i ettersmaken. Noe fylde.

LouisP (215) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 25, 2016
Une bière blonde avec peu de mousse et beaucoup d’effervescence. Au nez c’est très cuivré, les bretts sont assez présentes, mais il y a aussi un côté fruité qui me rappelle la mangue. En bouche c’est très complexe. Brett subtile. Acidité présente. Côté sucré. Finale vineuse. Cette bière à tout pour plaire. La complexité est évidente, agréable.

shoulderbroken (3755) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 23, 2016
Tap at Moeder Lambic. Wow. Soft and low carbonation. Feels almost oily. Loads of oak, vinous, leather, citrus, sweet and sour, wood. Creamy and funky. Bit of everything.

Maakun (3932) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 7, 2016
Tap at The Only Cafe Toronto. Almost clear golden with small white head. Lots of Brett funk with pineapple, white wine, spicy yeast, light grainy, gooseberries, dry herbs, hay, dank cellar, sweet overripe peach. Medium sour and medium sweet. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Quite nice!

Bottle from Lauziere thx Alex for buying it for me. It’s been a while since I wanted to try that one. A: citrusy, white wine, leathery, a touch of vanilla, subtle spiciness, apple, apricot App: clear golden small white head some lacing t/p: thin body with moderate long acidic finish. Moderate carbonation. O: After such a long wait even tough I was warned by friend that it wasn’t crazy. The beer felt just a bit sort of expectations. The label describe a complex beer, it’s complex don’t get me wrong but it feels also delicate at the same time..Not powerful enough. Glad I finally had it, I will enjoy the rest of my bottle and will probably buy again, I won’t simply buy a case of it
