AlainG (1491) - 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)

Stoned99 (483) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 4, 2015
750ml bottle from TDD Shop. Aroma: funky farmhouse, red fruits, winey, leather. App: cloudy golden, small creamy white head, nice lacing. Taste and palate: medium body, velvety, soft carbonation but fizzy, light long acidity finish. Overall: as expected this is a masterpiece. So well balanced. Not too sour, not too sweet. Really well done. Can’t think of anything wrong with the palate.

jaghana (4579) - 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.

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 !
