fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 17, 2014
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.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 24, 2012
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.

Bottle shared by Marcus. Pours brassy gold with a slight head. Aroma is a bit sweet/tart. Dusty. Hints of apples. Med body or better. Flavor is earthy tart. Gets a bit grapey. A touch of must. So a sour/earthy/tart finish with some woody notes.

brokensail (10547) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Thanks, Shawn! Hazy orange pour with a tall white head. Nose is citric and tart. Lemon, grapefruit, and orange notes along with a nice oak and must aroma. Sweet wine, a hint of sugary, and some nice grape aromas. The flavor is really nice and fruit forward. Wine, grapes, lots of citrus, and a hint of peach. Nice oak flavor, moderate tartness, and vanilla.

Leighton (10449) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2013
Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell during Paul’s Birthday Celebration - London. Thanks to Bruce for this one. Pours hazy yellow-gold with a light, creamy white head. Good funky nose, lots of poo, manure, light yeast notes. Light to medium sweet flavor with good funk, further poo character, light lemon, some dry dough. Light to medium bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Clean and dry to finish with manure, brett, hay, pale malts, faint grassy bitterness. Lovely. One of the beers of the day.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a hazy golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy sour, floral and tannic wood aroma. Medium to full body with a tingly texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer for style and great label.
