My Bottom Line : mcberko (18390) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 16, 2012
This most elegant Wild Ale displays shiny yuzu fruitiness and tartness through slick honeyed cereals for a compelling drinking experience.
Further Personal Perceptions :
-A veil of foam decorates the clear blond shine.
-The yuzu character is redolent of key lime at times.
-The mouthfeel is simply perfect; slender, polished, maybe even aerodynamic.
-Tartness is not as intense as most DDC Wild Ales. However, drinkability is sky high.

On tap at the Dieu du Ciel 14th anniversary party, pours an opaque dark orange with a medium head. Aroma of spicy citrus fruits and lots of zest – the spicy citrus dominates. Flavour of intense citrus fruits (oranges, lemon; not really sure how to describe yuzu), wheat, slight spiciness, and some mild tartness. Quite complex and refreshing, with a unique flavour profile due to the yuzu. Very nice. GRM (4108) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 22, 2012

A lightly hazed golden ale with a thin lacing off white head. In aroma, an interesting lactic and herbaceous malt with light funky notes. In mouth, a lightly sour weisse bier, fruity beer, nice and refreshing. On tap at Mondiale 2012, June 8 2012. blankboy (7735) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 3, 2012
Draught at Mondial de la Bière 2012, June 8. Pours a hazy golden-peach with a small semi-lasting creamy off-white head. Aroma is fruity with a light funky sourness and some berries. Flavour’s more sour then expected based on the aroma, it’s also fruity and refreshing. Average bodied. Good stuff, a unique and enjoyable beer.

[4466-20120608] Tap. Honey lemon yeast aroma. Clear, orange body with a medium-lasting creamy white head. Lemon peel yeast and tangy sour honey notes in the flavour. Light-medium body. Weird funkiness, can’t decide if it’s a good weird or not. (5/3/5/3-/12) 2.8

@Mondial de la Bière 2012, Montreal - hazy blond beer with a little foam left; strong nose of acidic yellow fruits; fresh lively and acidic palate; subtle carbonation; quite dry; bitter/acidic with a long fruity finish - very fresh and drinkable; original jercraigs (10651) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 14, 2012
2012-06-08. Lightly hazy yellow, small white head. 3+ Modest aroma is funky in a way that is different from what I am used to in a sour, interesting fruit character is vaguely grape like? 7+ Flavour is similar, refreshingly sour throughout, mild fruity character, sort of grape like as in the aroma. Pleasant modest sourness lingers in the finish and aftertaste. 7+ Smooth average palate is softly carbonated. 3+ I found the more subtle aspects struggled a bit to define themselves against the sourness, but I expect that might develop more in a larger sample. Enjoyable. On tap at Mondial, Montreal sseb69 (1922) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 11, 2012
