3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled April/2010. From private Quebec buying group.A fresh yeast aroma, with some funk. Somewhat gushing, prewarning enabled us to treat my weeds. Cloudy orange with large soapy head. A good tartness,though builds to somewhat vinegar with repeated samples, licorice, grape. Good drinkability. Nice for the hotter weather. Neat complexity-Johnsense. Oak rounds it out.

750ml bottle. Nose is melting plastic, funky grapes, must, hay. Taste is tart grape, hay, chemicals, plastic. Finish is tart grape with some sweet notes. Strange.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled April 2010
Hazy amber color; the bottle is a gusher; it has a medium sized compact head, quite persistent. Peculiar aroma, some funkiness, wine, sweat, wood. The mouthfeel is very smooth, there is some residual sweetness, malt flavor, with some strawberry fruitiness, rubber; the bitterness is quite low; a bit of lemony character, and wood.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a rusty brown color with a finger of eggshell foam. The nose is wet oak, fish emulsion, a bit of rust and earthy composted fruit; Unfortunately the palate follows with fishy off flavors that are overwhelming and not enjoyable what so ever. Very disappointed by this beer as well as the most recent batch of Divina.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A bit of a gusher upon opening - took 15 minutes to slowly open the bottle before we figured "fuck it" and opened the bottle outside. Orange pour, big head. Yeasty aroma, white grape, funky. Fairly tart drink - White grape, a light oakiness (that really comes through after you’ve had a few sips) liquorice, caramel. this was a neat drink.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 15/20
75 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 29.04.2010.
Beer started to foam out of the bottle immediately after opening. Aroma feels like a sour ale with berries, earthy and woody notes. Flavour is sourish and leathery with earthy notes, berries, some red wine and wood. Palate is way too high on CO2, which makes this rather difficult to drink.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
My Bottom Line :
Peaches and floral honey are bludgeoned by cork notes, dust and overly active carbonation in this failed attempt at being creative.
Further Personal Perceptions :
-Gusher alert!! A slice of foam establishes itself atop the chunky beige.
-The aroma remains pleasantly rustic and complex.
-There is a touch of iodine in the finish...
-Unbridled effervescence doesn’t help drinkability.

75 cl bottle.

Pours very agressively with a huge head. Aroma of sour fruits and mild berries. Flavor of sour fruits, berries and malts. More of a heavily carbonated sour ale.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle at DRBM. The aroma is citric, sour, fruity. Hazy, orange coloured with a thin, off-white head. The taste has medicinal oxidation. No good.
