Gushing - nah, exploding - to huge, foxy, yeast-flecked head, all yeast in suspension in a rhubarb coloured beer. Nose with cocos, lunaria, but very, very faint. Slight sourish, fruity and yeasty, lots of bananaester. Finish is quite sourish. Very prickly mouthfeel, as a sparkling mineral water, rendered more creamy by the yeast. This beer is not just a one-off (brewed on commission for a Walloon "Confréraye di Courcèlangn’s"), but the present brew has been kept largely out of circulation, because of the unwanted behaviour of the yeast. It might be a tad infected, but it doesn’t taste so, and I rather like it.
