mcberko (16260) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 16, 2012
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.

Lubiere (13428) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 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.

@Mondial de la Bire 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

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

MartinT (9653) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 21, 2012
My Bottom Line :
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 brewpub.

mabel (8717) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 25, 2012
[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, cant decide if its a good weird or not. (5/3/5/3-/12) 2.8

blankboy (7510) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 3, 2012
Draught at Mondial de la Bire 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. Flavours more sour then expected based on the aroma, its also fruity and refreshing. Average bodied. Good stuff, a unique and enjoyable beer.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 11, 2012
In short: An original sour wheat blond beer with an unusual musty/farmhouse and unusual fruity character. Original and very good
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Almost clear blonde body topped by a small white head
In long: The aroma is very unusual, it is musty, it is scented/floral, I noted fresh potatoes (!!!), sour dough and citrus fruits. Intriguing to say the least. Taste a plenty of crisp bready/wheaty malts, lime, grapefruits, some lemon, dried flowers, farmhouse sensation. Sourness and acidity levels are average for the style. I never had a yuzu and obviously I dont know what yuzus taste like, so Im not sure if the unusual aspect of this beer comes from the use of this exotic fruit or something else, but all I can say is there was a really strange but fun farmhouse/musty component to this Berliner Weisse and an equally strange but fun fruity component. A Berliner Weisse made with yuzu, I never ate a yuzu in my life, no problem, Ill try anything once, 48 times if its a good beer.

Ressemble une Hefeweizen mais avec en arme les bonbons srs citron trs incisifs. Au got cest le zeste de pamplemousse avec la fracheur de la carambole et un fini assez sucr perdu dans une scheresse extrme. Trs agressive acidit sur la langue.
