Dégustée en fût sur place. De couleur dorée et légèrement voilée. Nez légèrement aigre de levures sauvages fruitées (agrumes, léger de mûres et de cerises sûres), moyen de blé avec des notes de céréales, de pain et de houblon herbeux. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture aux petites notes sirupeuses. Goût moyennement aigre de levures sauvages fruitées (cerises sûres, notes de mûres et de citron) aux notes terreuses lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de blé légèrement sûr avec des notes de miel, de pain et de céréales puis en finale l’on retrouve des notes amères de houblon herbeux. Post-goût moyen et sec, moyennement aigre de levures sauvages fruitées (moût de petits fruits), léger de blé sûr avec des notes herbeuses et de bois humide. (2 mars 2013)

Arôme de fruits rongés par le brett, quelques céréales et une apparence juteuse. Le liquide attaque la langue doucement mais avec persistence, acidulé et passablement lactique au fond de la gorge. La facette juteuse de son corps est à mi-chemin entre une ipa et une bière aux fruits. Solide béte.

On tap at the 12th anniversary of the brewpub, cloudy amber-gold hue, with a small white head, slight bretty, funky, fruity nose of faint acidic berries, with a light sour, dusty, wheaten malt aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a nice light yeasty, bretty, funky, vinegary character of dill pickles, with a faint blackberry sourness, and a hint of lactose acidity, leading towards a tart, winey, acidic, fruity finish.

In short: A tart and slightly funky fruit beer (red fruits). Sessionable and refreshing
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Cloudy dark orange body topped by a small pink head with good retention
In long: Nose is a bit funky with red fruits, even strawberries. Taste is very fruity, wheat cookies, light to moderate brett presence, lactic notes. Overall fruity, tart and dry which all together brought a fruit seeds sensation. I preferred this one over the straight Hérétique. The beer is a bit tart and funky but unlike most Sour Ales on ratebeer this is not a sipper. This beer is very sessionable. This beer was released at the 12th anniversary of the brewpub. The best party of year in Montreal. Of course it doesn’t compare to the best parties in USA. I hear the CIA will is having a grandiose party to celebrate their 50-year campaign to overthrow Castro and 10-year search of Bin Laden. Congratulations and have a great party!!!

A golden orange amber ale with a lacing white head. A light Brett aroma over some light berries, a bit powdery. In mouth, a nice lightly acidic offering with light berries, refreshing bit not as good as the other one. On tap at DDC 12th Anniversary, Sept. 11 2010.

Diogène (1208) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Hazy golden with a thin head. Aroma is funky notes, sugar, sour notes and blackberries. Flavor is Blackberries, sourness, residual sugar with a slightly sticky mouthfeel.

Fred82 (2331) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 30, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2011 On tap at DDC anniversary.
Appearance : Amber with light lacing.
Aroma : Nice tartness with grain. Light brett. Nice fruits. Lots of wheat. Sour. A bit lactic.
Taste : Grain with fruits. Nice tartness. Lots of wheat. Finish is rather dry. Tart with wheat.
Overall : Very nice beer. Felt more balanced than the Heretique. The tartness made it more drinkable for me. Brett could have been more present. Nice fruits, nice grain. Quite complex.

110113. 375ml bottle shared by MartinT.
Overall : Just some quick notes. The bottle was SO much better than what we had at the anniversary. Lots of tropical fruits notes coming from the Brett. Awesome nose. Nice notes of white grapes too. Light lactic coming from the Heretique base but mellowed by the Berliner Weisse. Maybe it needed more time to develop or we just got an outstanding bottle but this beer was out of this world. As I was drinking this I thought that this could have a Russian River logo on it. Rating for the bottle would be like 10-3-9-3-17 (Total 4.2) but I will leave this rating as is for now.

Tap at the brewpub (12th anniversary party). Hazy amber pour, very little head. I found the aroma to be very funky, a bit too much so in fact. Rotten fruit aromas, buttery oak aging notes and wild yeast. Taste was a rough blend of sour notes that didn’t turn out pleasing at all. Lots of oak aging caracter that was actually quite displeasing. No fun.

Plusieurs verres de 6 oz, au 12e anniversaire de DDC! Arômes très invitants de brettanomyces (lambicus ?) et de blé. Robe orangée et trouble, effervescence assez active et légère mousse. Bien surette en bouche (certainement la contribution de la Solstice d’Été aux Mûres), les brettanomyces sont également plus intenses que dans la version régulière. Les fruits s’expriment sous la forme de pépins de mûres, légèrement boisés. Finale lactique où l’alcool demeure très bien dissimulé. Très bon et facile à boire.
