Frudel (253) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2017
Bouteille vieillie environ 9 mois. Je ne savais vraiment pas à quoi m’attendre venant de cette bière achetée à 22$. Un liquide dorée trouble s’échappe du goulot avec aisance, laissant apparaître une jolie mousse blanche en signe de couvre-chef. Au nez, c’est vineux, on discerne le raisin blanc, des notes citronnées avec une pointe funky d’étable. Ça promet! En bouche, on y retrouve une rafraîchissante bière, avec son côté citronné, sec, vin blanc avec un peu de funky, juste assez! Une belle effervescence, la texture vineuse/huileuse est sublime. Une très charmante Ida complexe à souhait à découvrir!

Boutip (6533) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 12, 2016
Bottle: Poured a hazy bright pale yellow color ale with a large white foamy head with excellent retention and some lacing. Aroma of woody chardonnay notes with light tart and rustic malt notes is quite pleasant. Taste is an excellent mix of light dry Brett notes with some woody Chardonnay notes and some rustic malt with light peppery yeast notes. Body is about average with great carbonation. Wonderful beer with loads of complexity while retaining some great drinkability.

November 11, 2016. Bottle, received in a trade with tom10101, thanks!
Hazy yellow with a large white head, quite quickly dissipating leaving a nice lacing lacing on the glass. Aroma is quite vinous, fruity, spicy and light funky with grape skins, gooseberries, lemon, white pepper, herbs and notes of tropical fruits. Taste is very light sweet, light bitter and slight funky. Light bodied, crisp texture, soft to average carbonation. Finish is light bitter, a salty hint, fruity, slight tart notes with grape skins, lemon and gooseberries, some funk and herbs.
Complex and crushable, nice!

fiulijn (21214) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 9, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2016 5.2% ABV
Cloudy pale blond color with generous head. Very weird aroma, manure, fields, BO, funk, coriander, light citrus. Highly carbonated, dry, the strongest flavor is cedar peel, it’s tannic, citrusy, woody, a bit astringent.
Unclean, a bit rough, but full of interesting sides.

Ferris (16501) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 8, 2016
Bottle - Lots of weird bready funk. Cloudy gold with a rich white head. Woody, funky lemon and sweet bitter notes. Big and bold funk.

Clear pale yellow with small foamy hhead nose yeasty with citrusy notes slightly vinous with fruity notes. Taste vinous with citrusy notes. Yeasty as well. Finish yeasty hoppy and citrusy. Light tartness. Very refreshing. Quite complex and tasty. Thin bodied. Nice persistent vinous notes on finish. Very well balanced and complex.

yourilevesque (1865) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 1, 2016
Dégustée en accompagnement d’un poulet à l’estragon farci à la duxelle de champignons. L’accord est parfait. La bière ne manque aucunement de corps. Le funk sauvage et vivifiant de cette bière s’harmonise parfaitement à cette pâte concentrée en champignons sauvages. Le liquide propose une attaque bien citronnée dominée par des malts légers et croquants et Dieu sait que poulet et citron forment un duo gagnant. Finale plutôt sèche accompagnée d’une note herbacée accompagnant parfaitement l’estragon ainsi que les tranches de fenouil ayant cuit dans le fond du plat. Tout ceci est bien cohérent et plaisant!

3.9
MartinT (10036) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 27, 2016
My Bottom Line:
Elderflower juice, haystacks and farm funk converge on this Grisette’s herbal hop bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam manages to lace nicely around the cloudy blond.
-This is as complex as it is drinkable.
-A chalk-like touch passes by.
-Fruitiness is also quite citrusy.

Bottle.

750mL bottle, pours a cloudy golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma is complex, with white wine barrels, Belgian yeast and some funky yeast. Flavour is very dry, with lots of white wine barrel, wild yeast, and dry funk. Dry, funky and farty. Nice stuff.
Earlier Rating: 8/2/2016 Total Score: 3.6
750mL bottle, sent from yourilevesque (thanks a lot, Youri), pours a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out dry toasted grains, Belgian yeast and crisp biscuity malt. Flavour is fairly complex for the style, with toasted dry grains, some fruitiness and a crisp biscuity malt. Fairly dry but with a nice fruitiness to it. Very good stuff.

750ml. Cloudy golden yellow with a frothy white head. Flavors are bread, oak, yeast, lemon and chardonnay with floral and salty notes. Light to medium body, moderate to good carbonation, smooth texture.
