(Merci à Yan pour la dégustation) Le liquide a une robe cuivrée. La tête mousseuse est belle. Quelques traces restent collées au verre. Le nez est attaqué par des parfums de fleurs et de bois. La levure fait son travail. Le caramel se signale. Les raisins blancs sont évidents. Les saveurs vont pratiquement dans le même sens : les malts apportent une douceur, le boisé est goûteux, les fleurs caressantes, les brettanomyces en finesse. On oserait même croire à la présence de champignons frais. Les raisins blancs apportent une agréable acidité. En bouche, le liquide a un corps moyen-faible avec une effervescence vitaminée et une texture légère. En finale, les notes boisées sont explosives tandis que les notes aigres confortables.

neuromatt (1140) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2011
75 cL bottle from Premier Gourmet in Buffalo, served in a tulip. Pours hazy caramel with a tall tan head. The head mostly remains and leaves lots of loose lace. The nose has big notes of sour fruit, Brettanomyces, grapes, spruce, straw and flowers. The flavour is somewhat dry throughout with plenty of sour fruit, toasty malts, and dry white wine, along with a touch of floral hops, oak and caramel. The finish is long and dry, with a slightly sour maltiness. On the palate, it is medium in body with a dry texture and lively carbonation. Overall, this is an excellent, interesting brew. From the aroma, I expected it to be much more sour, but it is dry with just a touch of sour fruit. Surprisingly effervescent and light on the palate, it makes for an excellent Summer ale. 2011-07-22

Bouteille de 375ml, bue en compagnie du Slovak. Cette bière a subit les affres du tonneau, elle est ambrée foncée, la formation mousseuse disparait rapidement. Le nez est intrigant, il est plus près du vin que de la bière, un peu à la manière d’un Oloroso, il sent le sous-bois, feuilles mortes, un touche de brett. La bouche est un mélange de vieux bois, de brett, il y a une amertume de thé, de tannins, un peu de sous-bois et de feuille morte. Assez spécial comme bière. 7/10

Ungstrup (29224) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2011
Bottled. A hazy dark amber beer with a huge lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of white wine, malt, and brettanomyces. The flavor is sweet with notes of brettanomyces, malt, caramel, wine, and yeast, leading to a dry finish.

Bottled. Hazy amber, rich firm head. Vinous grassy nose with some sweaty funkiness. Mid sweet with solid body and lightly spritzy mouthfeel. Some old hay and horseblanket, lightly vinous. Salty finish. Outstanding!

dtborelli (322) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 10, 2011
Mikkeller It’s Alive! Pours golden copper with a thick though quickly dissipating head. Aroma is earthy, perfumey floral arrangement. Very nice, but slightly understated. Flavors of flowers and Belgian funk by the truckload. Bubbly with a spicey clove finish. Very interesting, I got the impression that it actually was alive.

Boutip (4701) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 6, 2011
Bottle: Poured a hazy yellow color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some very good lacing. Aroma consists of sour notes with nice vinous feel and dry finish. Taste is a complex mix between some white wine notes and sour notes with a dry tart finish. Body is quite full with great carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very well brewed with great complexity and great drinkability as well – somewhat reminiscent of Russian River.
