3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled@SBWF2014. Hazy golden colour, not all too much head. Aroma is sour wood, some mild berries, and mild brett as well. Flavour is very similar, but quite much lacks a dryness to support the sourness of it. Balanced, but leaves a bit strange.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Legacy Liquor, Vancouver
Beautiful golden color, slightly hazy, with creamy and persistent head, very fine perlage. Harmonious aroma, lightly fruity, with some Brett, cellar smell, wet hay, Alpine toma cheese, a hint of bread. The mouthfeel is very smooth, and not too dry; gentle malt flavor, with well defined Brett presence leading to a mildly astringent final; pleasant lingering fruitiness, white grapes; correctly the bitterness is not very high, leaving more room to the mild acidity and astringency.
Extremely well crafted beer, harmonious and intriguing. It’s a pity that Le Trou Du Diable beers are expensive beyond reason.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cloudy, amber and with a big head. Fun aroma - woody, winey, apricot, a little funky. Rich, intense taste. Full body. Vinous notes, wood, with light alcohol, all kinds of spicy, honeyed complexity. Sweet citrus notes and light pepper, and of course a little noble rot accent. Very complex. Just the slightest bit of tartness late. You don’t have beers this good very often.
