Bu au Mondial 07. Brune brumeuse, pas de collet. Légé arome de malte caramelisé, avec des note de fruits sûrettes. Goût de fruit malté très sûrettes, mais une finission sec. leeburg (230) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - MAY 31, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2007 This one was a trip. Bottle pictured with a tulip glass, red/brown with a tan head. All sorts of fruits and spices in this one. Apples, berries, citrus, cinnamon, raisons... intriguing concoction. pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - MAY 29, 2007
Hazy reddish brown with a creamy tan head, dense, but thinning over time. Lightly sweet nose with a slight yogurt tartness. Round smooth malt with enough raspberry/apple tartness to balance. A bit creamy. Really well proportioned. Lively small bubbled body with a slight tingle al la Flemish sour. Foamy and creamy, though not over carbonated. Round round malt in balance with an almost vinous grapey tartness. The chocolate seems to fill out the malt and give the sweetness a bit more depth, as there isn’t any huge distinctly dark malt presence other than some well placed caramel. Very dry finish. Clean, slightly toasty aftertaste (from the lingering caramel notes?). A lovely beer, I’ll pick it up next time I see it. blankboy (7689) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 28, 2007
Bottle (750ml) shared at ’Biegaman’s Summer Gathering’ -- courtesy of viggo. Pours a cloudy orange-copper with an average size creamy tan head. Very nice spicy, funky & fruity aroma along with nuts, toasty malt and oak. Flavour’s tart, dry and funky along with spices, citrus, dark malt, oak and more -- quite complex and difficult to pin down everything going on here. Damn tasty though. Medium bodied. Man, these guys make such interesting quality beers and this is yet another one -- great stuff! SSSteve (4006) - - MAY 18, 2007
murky light brown/orange with a medium sized creamy yellowish head. caramel, and oak dominate aroma. flavor is caramel, vanilla, cinnamon, oak, and light sweet fruits. not too sour.....just right. the flavors mesh well.

Bottle: Pours red/brown and slightly hazy with a 2 finger off white head. Aroma of acidic fruit. Flavor is quite sour and malty with plenty of juicy fruit notes. I find the cocoa unnoticeable but the orange peel is prevalent but blends perfectly with the sour. Like a jolly rancher but not as sweet as a framboise. kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - MAY 11, 2007
750mL bottle, courtesy of Schroppfy! Pours a clear, dark amber color; off-white head with fine-bubbled lacing. Pleasant, bretty aroma, showing tart lemon and dried fruits; hints of cinnamon; really gets close to a Flemish sour profile. Medium-to-full, tart mouthfeel: significant brett character; lively carbonation; chewy malt and bready backdrop; spice and tart cherries. Lots of intriguing stuff going on with this beer. Lengthy, raisiny and tart finish. PhillyBeer2112 (2850) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - MAY 10, 2007
Hmm, well this beer promises alot more complexity than it delivers. Starts out with a cloudy copper apperance and large foaming head. The aroma is initially deeply fruity, with notes of peach and orange, but seems to quickly switch to a more simplistic doughy yeastiness with a slight touch of funky sour brett. The flavor is also lightly tart with a mild brett presence, yeasty and surprisingly quite dry, almost puckering so towards the finish. Light fruitiness but difficult to flesh out given the total dryness of this beer. Hints at spiciness but I could not uncover the cacao and cinnamon.

Somewhat sour brew for the style, sugar, fruit, some brett, very easy drinking on a hot day,usually a bsa is a sipper, but this was a drinker for me, refreshing. Very nice. Thanks to cquiroga for the brew. Woodshop tasting. barleyPops (1142) - Quad-Cities, Illinois, USA - APR 29, 2007
Rating #900, 750ml bottle courtesy of Mr. Styles, thanks Chris.
I’m not quite there yet when it comes to being a big fan of Flemish Sour types of beer, so when I popped this one open and poured it into my snifter and got a big aroma of brett and some sour funk, I was a bit leery. However, the flavor turned out to be subtle notes of spice, oak, citrus, yeast and malt. The only time the sour notes from the aroma became apparent was in the dry finish. All in all, a solid choice for my 900th rating. very enjoyable beer!
