3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Drank from a bottle at the 20th Mondial de la Bière, May 30, 2013. Orange brown, small head. Aroma of peaches, small sour fruit, a little sweet and spicy. Sour fruity taste, peach vinegar, slightly acidic, aftertaste of burnt sugar. Now this is a consumer testing only sample from DFH, so I don’t know if this will marketed, but I would not be surprised if it come out, this is crazy stuff, just like Sam!
In short: An uber-sweet, very fruity and very oaky dark ale. Meh.GRM (4140) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 26, 2013
How: From a bottle at Montreal Mondial 2013.
The look: Cloudy light-brown body topped by a tiny ring of foam.
In long: The intense nose is an assault of fruits and wood barrels. Taste is sickeningly sweet, a puree of sweet ripe fruits, astringent wood, tannins. A cloying attack morphing into a saliva sucking finish. The wood and tannins create an spicy-like sensation. Minimal carbonation, sticky mouthfeel. Anyway, what a great beer this was, I think I just made a sarcastic remark, maybe, I don’t know, I’m so overly sarcastic that I don’t even know if I’m kidding or not when I say I’m overly sarcastic.

Draft at the NHC conference. Pours a deep ambery color, near orange and hazed. Offwhite head. Nose is banans and funk, subtle sweetness. Note some faint peach but the brett is a bit plasticy. On tasting, moderate bitterness and quite sweet. Peaches and pineapple. Sloppy and needs work.
