Canadian 'wild' tripel, bottle at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Tightly cobweb-lacing, moussy and foamy, snow white head, initially as good as clear, warm and deep golden blonde robe with lively sparkling, misty with sediment. Aroma of overripe yellow plums, sweet red apple soaking in molten butter, gooseberry yoghurt, sweat, soggy white bread, honey, feta, old stale orange juice, goat cheese, wodka, vanilla. Fruiy, estery onset, ripe pear, gooseberry jam and starfruit notes, sweet with a sourish edge, creamy body coarsened initially by very sharp, numbing carbonation; pleasantly rounded, doughy, malt sweet middle, bit buttery with a thin layer of honeyish sweetness on top, shifting towards a long, leafy, earthy and cheesy hop bitter finish, peppery with hayish and leathery Brettanomyces notes blending in very well, with a dash of warming, gin-like alcohol in the end. The plum and honey sweetish notes as well as the butteriness linger a bit. Pleasant and interesting 'Bretted' Belgian style ale, good balance of sweet, sour and bitter with the sweetness prevailing; should improve and gain more complexity with cellaring.

341ml bottle (thx, Alex M.!). Bottled on 2015-09-25 (lost in inventory, hehe). Three varieties of Dernière Volonté in a row. Pours a hazy golden with a white head. Aroma is fruity, flowery, typical for Belgian beers. Same taste, similar to Belgian Saisons. Good stuff, despite it’s old. azzurro (570) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2017

355mL Bottle (2016-09-16): Poured hazy orange, very faint white head, small bits of sediment. Aroma of wheat, bread, floral hop, pepper spice, orange peel, hint of bubblegum and an interesting funkiness from the blend of hops/yeast that I just can’t put my finger on. Light sweetness, light bitterness (I didn’t get much of the bitter hop taste), medium body, tingly carbonation, oily dry finish. Overall: definitely interesting, good taste and finish. The scent was initially not for me but I warmed up to it.

On tap at DDC St-Jerome. Lets be honest. This beer used to be among the best and an incredible one. Few years ago, DDC had issues with the procurement of the yeast and it had never been the same when they reintroduced it with apparently a new recipe to accommodate a different yeast. I even had the impression they may have changed the recipe more than once in trying to achieve something satisfying. The beer is still good, but no longer the exceptional one it used to be few years ago! rondphoto (4582) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUL 22, 2016
bottle @ Keg Liquors / Clarksville IN --- Aroma of malt and bitter floral. Cloudy medium / dark amber, off-white head that sinks quickly to a cover, mottled curtain of lace. Taste is Semi-sweet caramel malt that adds solid carbonation on the swallow before revealing yeast and mild floral hops that drift through a long finish. Big and bold, but still light in the belly. Solid brew. esp0r (2934) - NORWAY - MAY 20, 2016
Bottle shared at the Weekend in the woods 2015 with daje, Simonsen and some other guys
Orange hazy, big frothy head. Smell of yeast esters, spices, smelly feet and "gymbag", light malts, some funky brett. Light to moderate sweet, fruity, some funk and complexity, quite dry. Medium bitter, herbal tail. Quite nice!
