English: It’s Alive!!! Indeed it is. This Belgian Ale has been aged on White Wine barrels to give it that touch of alcohol, while the Brettanomyces give the tartness. Complex but well balanced beer.

JoeMcPhee (9325) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 14, 2011
Tap at Vandaag. Deep hazy amber pour. Creamy thick head. The aroma is soft and minerally with a lot of brett funk and soft crackery malt. A lot of fruit on the front of the palate with pineapple, mango, and a bit of raspberry as well. Sweeter than I was expecting even tnough the flintiness of the brett does come through quite a bit. It’s definitely too sweet, but there’s a lot of potential in this glass.

Cirrhosis (1283) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 9, 2011
Glowing amber haze with pearl like bubbles floating up to the top of my glass, the crown is thick tall and dish soapy, Sour, very sour, and some more sour in the aroma. I can a pick up oak, Belgium yeasty yum, some wheat, some spice……but not really spice more of an odorless sharpness that I’m calling spice. There is even a out of place but pleasant odor of a cherry Lambic somehow in here. The more I smell the more the funk comes out. Taste is better!!!, nice sour, good wood, I even get the white wine. LEMON!! The wine is not at the front of the flavor it’s probably the third to fourth flavor you pick up. NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! My long time beer review pen just died!!!!!!! I’ve been using this pen for reviews for 2 years now, sad, sad day, how will I ever go on? Ok I’m better now found a new pen. The wheat really shows up in the back of the throat, can you say banana? Nice sharp peppery spice comes out but not on every sip. Brew gets thicker and more malty the longer you let it sit, the sour and wine start to fade………………not sure how I like it better! Nice interesting beer it didn’t rock my world but it was still yum.
