3.1
mathieuc (4000) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 10, 2016
Pours a clear amber with a thin white head that leaves spotty lacing. Nose is of cardboard, fruits and light vinegar. Taste is of caramel, booze and more oxidation signs. Some dark fruits or maybe red grapes. Body is medium, carbonation low to moderate and it does feel a little vinous. OK but nothing much.

Bouteille 750ml, bottle share. Couleur cuivrée foncée translucide, anneau de bulle beige foncée. Arôme d’amande, malt, alcool. Goût de malt caramélisé, alcool, amande. Carbonatation faible, corps moyen.

czar (9601) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 5, 2016
pours hazy/cloudy light brown orange with a small light beige cap offering minimal retention and lacing. spicy sweet dill, fruity nutty maltiness, spicy raisins, rotten red fruitiness - very curious aroma; belgian yeast. moderate carbonation, medium body - oily; astringent, ashy, sweet and spicy finish. fail.

SlovakSniper (5561) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 5, 2016
Cette bière sans mousse et sans grandes bulles montre une douceur maltée et des herbes. Le goût est sensiblement le même avec une apparition fruitée. Le corps est sans bulles. La finale est maltée. Sans grand intérêt.

Gerbeer (4148) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 12, 2016
330 ml bottle. Pours a dark hazy amber with light to moderate head. Aromas of rye dough, dark fruit, and Christmas spice. Flavors of rich sweet malts, raisins and Christmas cake, and Belgian yeast. Wonderful.

BiddleBrau (1238) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 21, 2015
I believe this is a 2008 vintage, first year perhaps (rubber cork noted 0108) purchased with Mike C but enjoyed solo. No pop from the cork and no carbonation. Brown with slight haze. Malty sweetness aroma. No bite from carbonation, or lack there of. Mostly clean finish, minimal oxidation. I?m sure this saw better days as I didn?t treat this well. Still a nice find in my cellar.

tmongoose (2504) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 7, 2015
draft that poured a medium orange color with white frothy head. nice aroma of Belgian yeast some darker fruits and apples. very slight alcohol on the end. the flavor was a full bodied mouth feel. alcohol mixed with the fruits especially the apple and the Belgian yeast. not overly strong but a solid flavor start to finish. another great sipper.

4.2
Livendadream (261) - New Mexico, USA - OCT 4, 2015
Btl 2013 pours light bronze color, small white head vanished quickly leaving no lace. Smells of fruity,funky,flowers and a hint of sweet honey. Tastes of dark fruits,raisin,plum,figs,lemon,sweet breadiness, yeast and honey. Medium body, a little under carbonated,smooth, soft mouthfeel and a slightly tart, yet tingly right on the tip of the tongue finish. This collaboration is outstanding! Very easy to drink beer. The alcohol is hidden by the complex flavors. The sweet malts are balanced perfectly by the hops and funkiness. I could drink this all day if I wasn’t such a lightweight. Ha!

4.2
krumbum (1109) - truckee, California, USA - JUL 25, 2015
Smooth aroma of a Brett funk. Slightly hazy Amber with a huge white head. Thinner body that is a smooth Apple with a light inviting funk.
