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.

Pours gold into a tulip. White head with little retention recedes to hug rim. Oak, dark grape and marshmallow aromas. Soft with sweet marshmallow upfront turning to dark pit fruit and bitter earth in the lasting finish.

veronneaupy (175) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 13, 2014
Au nez, une forte odeur boisée avec un bon côté sour. En bouche, c'est astringent, sure et très boisée. La finale empreigne la bouche longuement de saveurs sûres et boisées. Exceptionnel! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thanks to fellow RateBeerian sgdougan for splitting this beaut with me. I haven’t been privy to partaking in all that many Sours but compared to the few I have had, this is remarkably accessible. In no manner do I mean to say it is subdued or boring, but instead that the flavours are blended so well that there isn’t the sour shock experienced from others of the style. This she-bitch pours a pretty hazy straw with a thin and fizzy white head. All sorts of smells and flavours are present here; vanilla, white white, peaches, cat piss, black pepper, grass, wheat, lemon and a woody dankness. T’is a very complex beer with a mildly prickly carbonation and a mid-light body. Not nearly as menacing as the label art would have you believe, this is one sexy brew that deserves some contemplative sniff n’ sip and a two-day period of flavour rumination.

neongolden (538) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 1, 2014
(750ml bottle from Dépanneur Peluso, ~9 months old I think) Pours a pretty lightly hazed medium gold with orange hints and a moderate, tight white head that fades to a ring with lace. Aroma a great blend of funky, sour/tart, sweet, woody. Nose of apricot and peach, mostly candied, a bit tropical (part barrel and part hops?), floral honey dessert wine sweetness, lots of oak, Bretty aged (blue?) cheese funk aplenty. Palate has a nice honey sweet dessert wine-ish malt core that gives structure. A puckering tartness of fresh apricot and yellow plum with skin, light acidity, sweet mango/peach too. Quite a reasonable amount of wood from the middle on. Musty Brett as it dries into the finish. Tick of honey and fruit on the roof of the mouth. Fairly light hop bitterness and a little booze in the aftertaste. Medium full and kind of slick, fairly light carb. Not really a sour but wild and funky with dessert wine flavours imparted from a wine also fermented with something wild and funky. Cool! The stone fruit pairs well with new world hop flavours. Awesome digestif sort of wild ale.
