BeerBeCue (103) - Montreal, Quebec, - JAN 14, 2013
375ml bottle poured into tulip. Pours a rather pure golden with some finger-thick head. Aroma is faint barnyard, green apples, some faint malt base and cider vinegar. Taste is really not the best I’ve had the chance to witness in a geuze or any type of sour ale, generally speaking...Very, very tart. Upon drinking it you soon notice that those green apple aromas are like...interrupted. You can perceive the apple’s tartness but then no sugar content at all...and it then fades away into not much. Mouthfeel is pretty watery with average carbo. Pretty long acidic aftertaste. Overall this is pretty weak compared to a Cantillon gueuze bio, for example, which is so way more complex...this is not "champagne" at all. I had medium-high expectations for this but it was a huge disappointment (especially at 13.99 $ a bottle at le St-Bock). I just wonder if I had a bad bottle, reading the rave reviews this brew had...

Very dry. Yuck. Would not buy. Maybe I just don’t like the style. Probably that’s why I’m so excited to be the first half of the day before I get a follow back on my way home from work.

VDuquerroux (422) - Airvault, FRANCE - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle, 37.5cL. @Strasbourg, bar Les Berthom. A clear yellow brown beer with a big white creamy head ; good retention. Aroma of smoke, wood, cider, barnyard (light in the mouth). Medium to heavy sour, very dry. Medium body, thin texture, fizzy carbonation, dry lasting sour finish. Overall, clearly... not easy to drink, very dry ; extreme but not dirty foolish, "too clean".

Bottle. Pours gold with frothy but unstable head that leaves some lacing for a while. Scents of leather, cellar, fermented fruits, acidic hits. Taste is obviously sour with tarting and dryness feelings - very well balanced with sourness not overexposed. Quite carbonated but it ain?t surprise as it was young bottle that I had. In general, very good beer of high quality and drinkability.
