COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by the traditional gueuze beers of Belgium, BACKACRE matures for more than a year in oak barrels to develop a fruity, earthy, and refreshingly tart character. The careful blending of different barrels creates a sparkling golden ale with a crisp and complex nature akin to cider or dry champagne.

tapefuzz (523) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 30, 2016
750mL bottle. Batch 07. Pours hazy gold with a small, quickly-dissipating white head. Aroma is yeast funk, oak, and green apple. Taste is white grapes, green apple, lactic acid, brett, brine, earth, hints of lemon, and vinegar. A tad strong on the vinegar, especially towards the finish, giving it an odd but pleasant character - vinegar feels closer to that of a sour red than your usual wild or gueuze. Dry finish. Body is on the lighter side of medium. Carbonation is medium bordering on lively. Crisp mouthfeel.

This beer is an excellent sour. Clean crisp, there’s not many sours out, they are hard to make. This is well worth the cost. Support the craft behind this brew.

MrOrla (3200) - Odense C, DENMARK - APR 1, 2016
Bottle. Poues hazy golden. Aroma of sour, light vinegar, light bubblegum, light sesam, burnt notes. Taste is rather popcorn, Brett, light vinegar, sesam. Very one dimensional sourness. A fail attempt.

jefcon (1847) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JAN 16, 2016
Champagne-like, with crisp green apple and brut champagne on the nose. Light sour palate, mown hay, rich mouthfeel, and fine carbonation. Very complex. Tremendous label art.

PhatB420 (840) - Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Giant bottle into a tumbler, pours a dandelion gold. Minimal fizzy white head dissapears fast, no lacing. Green apple in aroma and taste, fresh and tart on the pallate, quite fizzy and frontal on the back end. 7.3% slides right in, the tartness stands alone. Enjoyable through and through.

(Dégustation avec kzeon et yourilevesque. Merci à Alex pour cette chance! Version à 7.3%) La robe doree et embrouillée montre un col mousseux qui ne résiste pas. Ses parfums de fruits à noyau, de légère acidité, de yaourt, de poussière de campagne et de chêne sont loin d’être déplaisants. Ses saveurs délicates de fruits aigres, de foin, de funk doux et de chêne flattent mes papilles. Son corps de moyenne densité montre une texture crémeuse et un jeu actif des bulles. La finale est aigre-douce, sans agressivité, voire même facile.

yourilevesque (1829) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 19, 2015
Merci à Alexandre pour le partage! Bière d’allure noble et riche, dorée et moyennement mousseuse. Un nez de Brettanomyces où le fruit prend des allures de pommes vertes. Une grande quantité de bulles en bouche qui me descendent dans l’estomac où elles poursuivent efficacement leur travail. Surette, funky et sauvage, je note encore un important côté fruité. Les levures, l’effervescence et le fruit me rappellent les bières produites avec des levures champenoises. De longueur et densité moyennes, elle pourrait en effet facilement passer pour une Belge.

Lubiere (13898) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2015
A murky golden sour ale with a very thin off white head. In aroma, loads of lactic acid, Epsom salts, light Brett, lemon juice, very nice. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity malt with smooth lemony notes, lactic acid Epsom salts, nice and smooth. Bottle at Montréal Xmas gathering 2015.

markextrae (4424) - Alingsås, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - NOV 28, 2015
bottle shared by a friend. poured a very clear golden colour with a thin white head on top. as it starts to warm there’s a clear dried peach notice, apricots, and stone fruit pits. wheats, and crisp malts, sparkly carbonation and not that much sour tart notes to detect. taste follows to nose, again not that tart. but there’s a good amount of funk, oak, and ofcourse apricots. enjoyable beer
