AlainG (1545) - 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)

Poured from an oversize bottle back to back with the base. Pours cloudy amber with a lemon head. Lots of lacing. Aroma is Brett barnyard funk, hay, sour green apple, and spices. Flavour is barnyard Brett, sour grape skin, grapefruit, with a wonderful dry sour finish.

Riche, complexe et équilibré=parfait. Trou du Diable a réussi le tour de force d’accumuler les meilleurs éléments dans la fabrication d’une bière:levures belges (arôme puissant et fruit jaunes), levures sauvages (cuir), houblons (amertume), fût de chêne ( vin, bois, fruit rouge). Au final, le tout est tellement parfait que même mes invités les moins ouverts aux microbrasseries ont aimés. De plus, c’est très riche pour seulement 7% d’alcool, une bière d’été! Un classique que j’ai hâte d’avoir l’occasion de re-boire.

This is a game changer. I can’t imagine a more complex brew. Pours a bright coppery gold with a light carbonation stream and a thick but porous white head. Brilliant appearance with a bunch of lacing blotches appearing later. The aroma is complex and bountiful with tons of beautiful fruit esters and musty brett. Orange peel and lemon zest combine with cracked pepper, coriander and heavy floral hop notes. Moderately sweet, toasted wheat malts, light peppery and earthy spice notes. Lingering musty brett notes, farm house and hairy notes. So complex and constantly evolves as it warms. Medium body with a doughy, basement feeling the pervades the aroma and flavour. Can’t say any more....too much going on.

Stoned99 (544) - 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.
