COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Quevillon (2577) - Boisbriand, Quebec, - JUN 25, 2014
750 ml bottle bought at Dépanneur La Duchesse d’Aiguillon (in Quebec City) on February 6, 2014. Blonde misty, small head. Slightly sour rye aroma, slightly fruity wheat. Light fruity taste of wheat, a little sour, bitter grapefruit. A pretty good assembling!

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 (338) - 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 (9351) - 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.

punkska101 (1068) - Chambly, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 6, 2015
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.

Brassin #6. Sa deborde au debut! On sens direct bcp de brett , un caractere seche et assez vinaigré. En bouche petite amertume causee par les brett seche, poussiere. Sure. La finale est dwlicieuse mais breve . Une gazeification qui equilibre super buen les saveurs. Excellente.

veronneaupy (197) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 31, 2015
Au nez, c'est cheneux, acide et citrus. En bouche, c'est râpeux, barriqué, assez léger et acide. La finale est très brève, abrupte, fraîche et râpeuse sur la langue. Pas leur meilleure...! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

vadie (882) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 14, 2015
Jaune brumeux avec un col moyen beige. L’arôme un peu aigre et épicé. Le goût est comme une saison aigre. Il y a un peu d’épices, fruits fraîche et agrumes avec une finale un peu sec.
