AlainG (1740) - 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)

Bottle at Cafe Sara, january 15th 2016. Hazy light orange body with a fine white head. Aroma is bretty with berries, citrus and wheat. Extremely fresh and appealing! Taste is bitter grapefruit with sour notes, a funky wheat end and berries with spicy yeast esters. Dry ending, with a fresh sour aftertaste. This was just beatiful!

77ships (6539) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - NOV 15, 2015
Thank you for sharing! 750 ml. bottle sampled @ "De grote Black Tuesday Tasting". Hazy golden, small white head. Nose is puckering stone fruit, mango & plastic sourness. Taste is dull plastic with some mango, sour papaya, red fruit, lightly puckering, stone fruit, lightly sour. Sour fruit body. Too bad about the plastic streak / taste, could have been better but not bad as it is now.

Syrianne (6) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 19, 2015 does not count
Dorée brumeuse avec légère couronne de mousse. Sure aux premiers abords, elle se termine avec une forte saveur de vin blanc avec une touche de vanille, fruitée (orange, citron, pêche). Il est difficile de décrire tellement le goût se transforme en bouche et que l’expérience diffère a chaque seconde. Riche, complexe. Excellente!

HippyHop (546) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 3, 2015
Bottle shared with friends. Dark gold with a creamy white cap. Big leathery Brett nose, oak, green apple, lemon, cereal and honey. Not much hop aroma left but there's a nice resinous bitterness on the finish. Brett is big and boldly present, so is the white wine barrel. Rich creamy mouthfeel. This stuff is damn good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bouteille 2015 acheté à La Consigne. Elle arbore une coleur dorée, couronnée d’une mousse blanche. Les arômes de vin blanc et de vanille. En bouche, le corps est moyen et l’effervescence. Goût vineux, vanillé, alcool, boisée, bretté et surette. Très bon produit.
