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.

Bottle 75 cl. Pours a clear golden with hardly any head. Out of this world sophisticated sour wine aroma. Extremely complex. Light in body, hardly any carbonation, appears almost thin. Not overly sour, more bitter, overripe fruits, noble rot and again this extremely complex flavour pattern. Super delicious. 180315

Pours a pretty big frothy white head and has a pale golden appearance, but just slightly hazy with visible sediments. Lacing is ok. Aromas are mostly bitter and sour like, some oranges, strong yeasty notes. Flavours are fairly bitter, sour notes to start but are quickly replaced by yeasty finish. Also some flavours of grapes, sweet malts. Bitterness on the palate, medium bodied mouthfeel.

manuelMTL (215) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 8, 2015
Pours a clear orange with almost no head. Lots of carbonation. Nose is wild yeast with a little candy sweetness and citrus notes. Brett notes in the mouth with some oak barrel tones. Light bitterness and beautiful fruity notes. Overall dry finish with a light candy sweetness in the beginning. Complex beer with an interesting combination of New World hops and wild yeasts.

Pours a hazy gold with a small white head and lacing. It has an aroma of barn funk, grapes, honey, and some vanilla, with a flavor of tart fruit and wine up front and a sour, funky finish over a light body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thanks to Andre for sharing this one. Pours a hazy golden-amber colour with lots of small particles (looking like spices and yeast). Warm cap, decent retention and thin creamy lacing that goes down quickly. Sour aromas with gooseberries and hints of anise. Tarty mouthfeel, medium-bodied. The taste has a little sourness, but goes away leaving a trail of yeast. All with a herbal finish. Coconut and vanilla notes lingers with the yeast. A nice concoction of a sour ale nose with the flavours which are different. More on the Belgian Ale-side with a nice balance of fruity malts, spices and grassy hops. Glad I could try this !

Thanks Kevin. Cloudy golden yellow pour with an off-white head. Aroma is light fruity. Taste is light fruit, soft, dry finish. Slight sour, refreshing. Palette cleansing finish. Good lacing.

AgentAle (922) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 11, 2015
Aroma is an earthiness, funkiness, sour grapes, wild yeasts and clove. Taste is pale sweet malts, with a sourness that seems potent by aroma but is actually quite smooth and pleasant. Clove, grass, lemon, banana, and sour grapes. Appearance is a hazy gold /orange with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.

Bottled February 2014. This is a dark golden brown with a 3 finger lacy head. Honestly, the cap popped off really fast indicating it probably could be a gusher. Aroma has a lot of kiwi, pineapple, some turmeric and mango. Great funky aroma with some grape skins and oak. Love the taste of this. Very dry, so freaking funky. really excellent. Lots of fruit, wine barrel, oak, tannins, tropical overall. this is fantastic.
