COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It is a skillful blend, 40% of which is brewed in Buteuse Brassin Special, Dulcis Succubus and Bretteuse barrels, 40% is from sour rye aged in Banyuls barrels and 20% of which is from young Saison beer. The nose is evocative of a Flanders red, with slightly acidic notes of cherry. The palate is sharp, dry and slightly oxidized, leaving a sweet, fruity taste on the tongue which is immediately followed by a vinous finish reminiscent of great classical beers.

Merci David-Samuel pour le partage! Un bire vieille de presque 3 ans si je ne mabuse qui mon avis a trop longuement attendu. Robe cuivre, trouble et sans mousse la texture sirupeuse et huileuse. Douteux. Nez sweet and sour domin par de la noisette rancie. Une quantit dactone ou de colle Contact me dplat srieusement alors que le funk nous implore de la laisser mourir en paix. En bouche ce nest gure mieux: texture grasse laissant sur mes joues une pellicule huileuse dont je peine me dbarrasser. La colle contact passe dans mon oesophage (sans rien y coller, Dieu merci!) en me brlant quelque-peu. Saveurs de noisettes, de crales oublies et de vieux caramel. Une bire qui aurait d tre dguste plus jeune.

Stoned99 (1469) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 2, 2015
750ml 2 year old bottle from trade. Aroma: green apples, cherries, oaky, and a tad of rye. App: cloudy golden, no head. Taste and palate: thin body, no carbonation, vinous, medium dry sour and rye finish. Overall: what a shame that there is no carbonation. Aroma was awesome. Taste is great. Really like the acidity and vinous texture and that rye in mouth is insane but not having carbonation is a real turn off. Not too sure how to rate that one. Would have given me for sure if it would have been carbonated.

Boutip (6214) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 3, 2015
Bottle: Poured a cloudy dirty copper color ale with no head whatsoever. Aroma of iced cider, light woody notes and funky ester is quite the mix. Taste is unbalanced with clashing notes of apple, wood, funky Brett notes and wet leather. Body is little bit thin with no carbonation. I think I get what they tried to do here but I am not rally digging this one. The lack of carbonation is bit harsh and the flavours seemed unbalanced.

September 6, 2014 - my 750ml bottle shared with harrisoni and theydon_bois. Hazy orange pour with a decent frothy white head. Aroma - tart, mildly funky, with oak tannin and plenty of fruit - soft and simple, not aggressive at all. Taste - very gentle barrel, pleasantly fruity Belgian golden ale, just a hint of oaky bitterness. Average body and carbonation, finishes quick - could use a little more funk, but very drinkable and pleasant.

Premirement, bien content davoir pu mettre la main sur une bouteille de cette bire, merci Marc-Andr! Je remarque que cette bire est entre autre compose 40% de Buteuse Brassin Spcial. What?!?! Dj que la Buteuse BS est une bire incroyablement complexe, ils osent la mlanger et la faire vieillir encore plus? Damn, cest intimidant comme description a! :-) louverture, la bire me gushe lgrement au visage : il y a clairement de la brett l dedans! Le nez en effet trs brett mais avec des efflves de cerises bien prsentes. Cest leur Coq que jaurais jur faire partie de la recette. Le mlange est au bout du compte russi mais on perd un peu de la complexit de la Buteuse BS. Si javais la chance den avoir une deuxime bouteille, je la ferais vieillir un bon 4-5 ans : il me semble quelle tend faire partie de cette catgorie de bires sres pouvant prendre de lge avec beaut.

(750ml bottle) clearish deep gold, soapy large white bubbles. Nose of Brett C, funky, citrus, sawdust, acetone, cherry, and wet wood. Taste is fairly muted, Brett, citrus peel, light funk, mildly tart, easy drinking but a sourish finish wish touch of acetone on the palate.

750ml bottle via special order at LCBO (think they still have some at Volo though). Clear light copper with a white head. Light sour, lemon zest, some refreshing funk, brett, chardonnay, light oak, moderate body and mild carbonation, light funk and citrus on the finish with a touch of white grape. Tasty.

Bien aim cette sour blend. Je savais pas trop quoi mattendre. 3 de mes bires prfres vieillies ensemble pour faire un blend avec du seigle. Ctait assez acidul et vinaigr. Jai vraiment aim malgr les gots funky et spcials qui sortaient de nulle part des fois. Aucunement dcu.
