La levure sauvage prend beaucoup de place. Sa présence se sent, entre autre, au niveau d’une astrigence assez prononcée qui se développe dans l’arrière-bouche. C’est légèrement surette mais ça aurait pu l’être davantage. L’apparence est irréprochable. J’arrive difficilement à détecter la présence de notes de vin blanc. Une bière appréciée, particulièrement parce que son style est assez rare au Québec.

shoulderbroken (3658) - 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 (3566) - 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
