Bottle (750 ml). Slightly hazy yellow with a small white head and little lacing. Aroma is very lemon/lime forward and reminds me of the Barrel-Aged Flora Rustica that I drank a couple of weeks ago. There’s also winey notes, oak, brettanomyces, yeast and light spices. Taste is also mainly of lemon/lime along with wine, oak, light vanilla, brettanomyces and light spices. Nice citric/acidic touch. Alcohol is very well hidden (our bottle said 11,03% abv). Medium body. Fizzy carbonation. Slightly winey mouthfeel. Slightly dry finish. Very good lemon/lime forward golden ale. The wine barrel give this beer a couple layers of complexity. Really drinkable, especially considering the high abv. It’s my second beer from this brewery (the other was La Tache) and I’m really impressed. I will definitely look for their other beers!

Bottle at home with friends. Pour is somewhat hazy golden with a white head that quickly dissipated. Funky, urine, fruity, pineapple, green apples, pears, woody, white wine, and lemon peel in the aroma. Taste is moderately tart, lemon, urine, horseblanket, somewhat doughy, pineapple, mango, white grapes, a touch of bread, and honey with a lightly sour finish. Light body with high carbonation. Light, funky, easy-drinking, and tart, hard to believe its 10%+.

AdamJackson (2786) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Bottle at home, paid $27 at the local beer store here in Vermont. Crisp apple juice looking almost chardonay beer. nose is grapey, vinous and sweet. Taste is crisp and earthy. mild bitterness, almost like tangerine. Then it’s followed by fresh cut apples. very interesting and I’d have it again if the price were a bit lower.

Bouteille 750ml titrant à 11,03% d’alcool. De couleur dorée et voilée. Nez de levures fruitées (raisins verts aux petites notes vineuses, léger d’agrumes, traces de pêches et de pommes), légèrement sauvages aux petites notes rustiques, terreuses et épicées (poivre doux), moyennement boisé (bois humide, léger fût de chêne vineux), léger de houblon herbeux aux notes florales avec des traces de pain. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et légèrement croustillant ainsi qu’une texture aux notes huileuses et vineuses. Goût de levures fruitées moyennement acides aux petites notes sûres (agrumes, surtout de citron et de son zeste, léger de raisins verts vineux, notes de pommes, traces de pêches et de poires), légèrement sauvages, rustiques, terreuses et épicées (poivre doux) avec un léger goût boisé (fût vineux, traces de bois humide) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un léger goût de pain avec des notes de céréales sucrées et quelques traces de miel. Parallèlement, l’on retrouve un léger goût d’alcool réchauffant jusqu’en finale où s’y développe une légère amertume asséchante de houblon floral, herbeux et aux faibles notes citriques. Post-goût moyen et léger-moyen sec, composé d’un goût de levures fruitées légèrement acides (zeste de citron, notes de pamplemousse et de pelures de fruits verts) avec un léger goût boisé (fût vineux), une légèrement amertume de houblon herbeux aux notes florales et citriques ainsi qu’avec un léger goût d’alcool et quelques traces d’épices (poivrées).

pintbypint (2669) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 22, 2013
RBAG 2013, from a bottle with a sting holding the cork in (!?) Lemony yellow and hazy in the glass. The head is white and small, not long lasting. Nose has citrus/orange and some fruitiness (pineapple maybe?). Tastes a bit sour with white wine acidity, some fruity notes and mild funk. Light finish with a little bit of barrel character. Effervescent and generally enjoyable.

Huhzubendah (2637) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Batch Nov 09 2012 10.78 alc vol The beer is light golden with a small, fizzy white head. The aroma offers lemons, wild yeast, grass, funk. Herbal and earthy tones with a delicate sweetness balanced by a light funk. Highly drinkable and really smooth on the palate. This one is a sleeper. Light spice quality. Beautiful balance and so easy to drink. Where is the alcohol presence? Masterfully hidden. A truly fabulous beer.

Bottle. Clear yellow pour with a big white head. Mild citrus and barrel aromas. Mildly sour with lemon zest, citrus, pear, and white grape vinous highlights. Mild caramel malt, oak, and vinegar low lights. Not overly complex or tart. Tasty and easy sippin’. A bit on the effervescent side.
