AlainG (1446) - Montréal, Quebec, - DEC 2, 2012
Bière dorée, légèrement voilée, coiffée d’une mousse dense qui s’agrippe au verre pour lui en laisser une écume. Des arômes aussi variés qu’intéressants. Les fruits tropicaux sont représentés par le fruit de la passion, l’ananas et le raisin vert. Une odeur boisée avec des effluves de levures sauvages. Son goût est dans la même famille, laissant sur la langue une sensation acidulée, qui semble annuler les points forts du liquide. On goûte les brettanomyces au travers les élans de vin blanc. C’est très bon. (Embout. 03-12) (471-271112)

jaghana (4492) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - MAY 28, 2015
Bottle 75cl, kindly shared @Bières culte. A cloudy yellow beer, nose is fruity on the yellow fruit side, bit lactic but not that much. Aroma is lactic at the beginning, then dry grapes touch, body is dry mostly vinous, then a massive astringency if coming with brett dryness, pleasant.

Bottle at Julien’s Emptying The Closet Before Moving Back To Canada tasting, tfs Julien! With JulienHuxley, Caesar & Borresteijn. Cloudy, dark golden color. Off white head. Aroma’s: sour, slight brett. Retronasal: sourish, fruity, light brett, vinous. Flavor is moderate to full sour, quite tasty. Medium bodied, good carbo. Finishes moderate bitter, bretty. OK enough for a brett beer.

kevinsenn (1383) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2015
Bottle from trade with SlovakSniper. Great funky tart sour cherry aroma. Taste not entirely sour; nice sweet balance in there. Funky brett and tropical fruit with a tart finish. Very good. Thanks, Pat!

sammyboyy (54) - Shawinigan, Quebec, CANADA - APR 6, 2015
Excellente sour. Assez unique, on a le côté funky, une bonne acidité, tout en ayant une certaine amertume est des arômes assez présentes des multiples houblons utilisés. La bière est vieillie en fût de vin blanc, je trouve que la version 2015, le vin blanc est moins présent, assez bien caché, mais c’est très bon ! Je suis content que c’est ressorti !

Mortlach (1160) - Rome, ITALY - APR 6, 2015
750ml bottle shared @La Tana (Rome). Hazy golden appearance with a big off-white foam. Aroma of bretta, cheese, saison notes, hay, gooseberry, very good! Flavour is low sweet at first, then some vinous charactere comes out, a gente sourness, some fruity notes, a dry and bitter end. Medium body, medium to high carbonation. Amazing!

Franckg (396) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 5, 2015
Arômes de bois, levures sauvages, vin blanc fruité, orange. En bouche, goût de chêne, orange, citron. Les tanins prononcés du vin blanc apportent une touche plus sec au liquide. C’est aussi amer, fruité et bien boisé. Définitivement une de leurs meilleures sour beer.

CloakedDagger (1104) - - MAR 18, 2015
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

AleRider78 (155) - - MAR 15, 2015
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 (225) - 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.

high_on_hops (764) - Burlingame, California, USA - MAR 8, 2015
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
