molly75 (304) - (Madrid - España), - OCT 21, 2011
ESAME VISIVO VOTO (1-5) 3 SCHIUMA: bianca, media presenza, non molto fine e poco persistente COLORE: oro pallido, leggermente velata, senza residui visibili AROMA VOTO (1-10) 8 a primo acchito risulta vinosa, con profumi fruttati che ricondano uva e mela, ricordando uno spumante o una sidra. C’e comunque un fondo di malto che cerca di controbilanciare le note fruttate, a cui si affiancano sentori luppolati che non nascondono le origini USA. sembra di riconoscere contributi olfattivi legnosi dati dalla botte di invecchiamento . SAPORE VOTO (1-10) 7 in bocca compare subito una elevata astringenza, che tende quasi all’acetoso. Ricompaiono contributi fruttati di mela e uva con una punta di dolce che si perde di vista in fretta. Sul finale compare qualche nota amara ma lascia in bocca un retrogusto di mela aspra. TEXTURE VOTO (1-5) 4 copro medio, abbastanza morbida in bocca e con una carbonatazione nettamente frizzante COMMENTO FINALE VOTO (1-20) 13 premetto: non è il mio stile favorito. Detto questo, non è ben chiaro se sia una golden ale belga, una strong ale o una wild ale. Limitato dalla mia poca esperienza con questo tipo di birre, comunque opterei per una sour ale. L’astingente e l’acidità fanno da padroni, poco malto e poco luppolo. buon dinamismo soprattutto in bocca ma mi risulta difficile goderne fino in fondo. prodotto di qualità, ma ancora non sono pronto.... VOTO FINALE 3.5

I do think that this one is more of a sour ale than a belgian ale. It is a very good pumpkin ale, part of the LCBO 2017 Summer Beer Program.

MatChar (125) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 31, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2018 Bottle. Appearance: clear light yellow golden, nice thick white foam getting into thin laces, low and subtle carbonation. Smell: very subtle brettanomyces, perhaps bread/cereals, very smooth vinegar. Taste: notes of lemon, bread and very smooth funk, nice low sourness and sugar, great texture and feel, medium drinkability. Overall: high quality and awesomely balanced beer, was expecting more complexity, but still highly enjoyable.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2018 Light golden yellow with quickly dissipated white head. Sweet a bit floral. Kind of complex with a small bit of hops. Great complex beer from JP

culchiem (4295) - Berlin, GERMANY - JAN 14, 2018
Draught at Beer Temple. Hazy lemon with a medium head. Aroma of spicy perfume. Flavour is spicy yeast, fruit and perfume. Warm booze, hoppy fruit finish.

Franckg (1949) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 25, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 25, 2017 Bouteille datée du 20/04/2017, bue après 8 mois. Robe dorée trouble surmontée d'un col de mousse blanc et rocailleux. Arômes de levures sauvages fruitées, cuir, essence de chêne douce, pamplemousse, vanille, épices légèrement poivrées. En bouche, agrumes épicés, levures sauvages boisées, léger cuir, pamplemousse et mangue, zeste de citron, houblons floraux. Texture semi-onctueuse et corps moyen. Excellente.

SampleTamer4 (2) - Michigan, USA - DEC 21, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2017 Wow. Pours hazy pure gold with bright white head. Aroma of lime sorbet, pepper, barnyard and of course oak. Very oak forward with a hint of that malt peaking through the wild funk. not over dry but a clean finish. Very interesting.

Bottle from Clapton Craft. Failed Xmas cellaring attempt here... not upset though as this is sublime. Perfect marriage of the wild yeast character, apple sweetness and subtle oak. Really really top drawer stuff
