Avec L’Ours, les assembleurs du Trou du diable vous proposent un concept évolutif : chaque assemblage à venir sera distinct, laissant parfois jouer des notes plus intenses, qu’elle soient acidulées, amères ou fruitées. Il s’agira toutefois d’un mélange à vingt pourcents d’une bière de seigle sûre vieillie deux ans en barrique de chêne de Banyuls, et quatre-vingt pourcents de jeune saison. Le nez, aux notes délicates de rancio et de fruits séchés, portera d’abord à croire que nous avons affaire à une bière sûre. La bouche nous proposera aussitôt une bière jeune, acidulée et subtilement boisée, le tout s’étirant en une finale rafraîchissante.

Boutip (5065) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 13, 2015
Bottle: Poured a hazy golden color ale with a medium size foamy head with good carbonation but minimal head. Aroma of tart notes with light dry funky ester is quite nice and well balanced overall. Taste is also a great mix between some tart notes with some oak notes also perceptible and light funky ester finish. Acidity is well balanced and doesn’t disrupt the overall balance. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. Great balanced and great complexity makes this a criminally underrated beer.

Bottle from Tommy, thanks man! Apperance is cloudy yellow with a thin layer of light white head. Aroma is lemon, brett funk, grass, and cheese. Taste is lemon, grass, light funk, cheese, oak, white wine, and a touch of nail polish. Mouthfeel is a touch thin, finishes dry and crisp with a bit of a meatlic aftertaste. Overall this is pretty solid, there is a little bit of off flavour in this bottle but not enough for it to ruin the beer.

Bottle from a trade. Shared @ RBBWG 2015. Orange colour, white head. Medium carbonation. Fruity notes of orange and grapefruit. Light vinegar. Sour with sweet hints. Easy drinkable and refreshing. Good!

HippyHop (396) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 15, 2015
Assemblage #6. Pour is silty gold with an uneven, short-lived white cap. Nose is funky wild saison, as you’d expect: musty/barnyard, oak, lemon, green apple, light vinegar/white white acidity. Taste is lightly sour, acidic, with lots of wild yeast mustiness and oak, but a little bit of club soda blah in the middle. The rye comes through a bit more in the taste, whereas on the nose I could barely find it at all. Really neat beer, especially from a Quebec brewery, and clearly well-executed, but lacking a little oomph, flavour-wise.

Thanks to JefVerstraete! 750 ml. bottle sampled @ RBBWG IV. Hazy orange, little white head. Nose is orange, sour USA-style, cheap Champagne. Taste is mineral, sour yoghurt, malty, mineral, lightly herbal, sour, touch horseblanket, orange peel, yeast, thick standard brett. Med. mineral body. Touch dry. Decent & satisfactory USA-style sour. Nice beer, a bit plain and simple.

Benzai (9779) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - FEB 15, 2015
Bottle @ RBBWG 2015 shared by JefVerstraete. Hazy murky pale yellow almost milky color, no head. Smell and taste lightly sourish, yellow fruits, orangepeel, a hint of yeast. Well balanced but a bit boring imo.

750 ml bottle from the TDD shop thx Alex #6 edition A: brett, citrusy, spicy, floral app: clear pale thick white head and good lacing t/p: thin body with short acidic finish. Crisp. Moderate high carbonation. O: great. Subtle and balanced, this beer is a threat. The short finish makes you want take another sip right away, a nice quality.

Bottle at WVRST. Forget when though :( Almost clear, golden yellow colour. Thin white head. Nice lacing. Sour apple, grape aromas. Lovely smoothness.
