500ml bottle - shared by the Quebec posse in Lithuania - thanks!
Slightly funky, but to me more spicy aroma. Soft and smooth, some dry bitterness. Full palate, very yeasty. Looked a bit home-brewy. Finish has a gentle bite of hops, but also some alcohol.

Totally funked up bottle, picked up this year from La Duc. Brett gives big farm nose. This was a foamer. Big soapy head on golden yellow. Very mineral, a little acidic, aggressive carbonated. Just too funky for me, too many off flavours and strange bitterness.

2013-06-01. Hazy pastel yellow body, modest white head and lace. 3+ Aroma is mild, light bretty funk, pale malt. Flavour is pleasant, lightly bitter, mild barnyardy funk. Average bodied palate, modest carbonation. Enjoyable. Bit mild overall. On tap at Mondial de la Biere 2013, Montreal

23/VI/2012 - 50cl bottle @ De Bistronoom (Oostende) - BB: n/a (2012-647) Thanks to Christophe for sharing this bottle with us!

Cloudy blond to light orange beer, big rocky off-white head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: lots of varnyard, yeast, little flowery, grains, spices. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: little sour start, yeasty barnyard, soem grains, citrus, bit flowery, some urine-like flavours, but not really that bad. Aftertaste: citrus, barnyard, floral bitterness, yeast.

MartinT (10155) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 24, 2012
My Bottom Line:
This fluffy Wild Ale’s perfume of coniferous brettanomyces, biscuity cereals and floral hoppiness segues into prevalent doughy yeast.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy sheet of foam covers the misty orange.
-The aroma is very enticing for Wild Ale lovers.
-The body feels hefty with time. Drinkability is also reduced by the overt doughy yeast presence in the flavor profile.
-A light greenness could come from the Québécois grains or wild yeast.
-The flavor profile lacks definition.

TaktikMTL (8014) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 14, 2012
Bouteille de 500 ml achetée chez La Barik (Trois-Rivières, QC). Arôme: Odeur d’agrumes avec une pointe d’épices. Apparence: La couleur est blonde légèrement voilée avec une faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un large col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût d’agrumes avec une pointe de coriandre et de brett. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de fruits tropicaux en arrière goûté. (Rating #4273)

Boutip (6628) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 4, 2012
Bottle: Poured a hazy orangey color ale with a super large foamy head with great retention and some very good lacing. Aroma of Brett and dry hops notes with light funky ester is quite wonderful. Taste is also a exquisite mix between some Brett notes with light barnyard notes which are well balance with some dry floral hoppy notes. Malt is semi-sweet and doesn’t take away too much form the wonderful aroma of hops and Brett but act as a solid backbone. Another wonderful treat from Boquebiere.

Marheb (6336) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 12, 2012
Belle couleur orangée avec une arôme rustique alléchante. En bouche c’est une belle rondeur qui nous accueille, du caramel suivi du brett et d’une finition sèche crayeuse et poivrée. La buvabilité est ralentie par l’effervescence.
