THIS ENTRY IS FOR BARREL-AGED Buteuse only. It is only available in 750 ml bottles. 375, 500 and 650 ml bottles are made of the regular Buteuse. This version has been aged in oak barrels which had previously held an apple brandy from the Michel Jodoin cidery. One of its fermentations was also done with brettanomyces.

"Cette bière exceptionnelle, fermentée grâce à trois levures différentes, a vieillie quatre mois en fût de chêne américain ayant hébergé le brandy de pomme de la cidrerie Michel Jodoin. On y retrouve un côté vanillé, épicé, torréfié et animal. S’y mélange aux effluves d’alcool chaud le caramel brûlé, la pêche, l’abricot et le tabac frais. Une sérieuse bière de dégustation!"

Zlotta (2762) - Hagen, GERMANY - FEB 21, 2016
0.75 l bottle at RBBWG 2016 in Antwerpen. Minimally hazy, pale golden amber with a white head. Sweetish-sourish, slightly fruity aroma of white grapes, gooseberry, oak and lemon. Sweetish, slightly sourish taste of honey, white grapes, gooseberry and oak, followed by a short, moderately tart finish. Thin to medium body, slightly creamy and spritzy mouthfeel. Nice!

Thank you for sharing jefverstraete! 750 ml. bottle sampled @ RBBWG V. Hazy golden, creamy white. Nose is lightly butter with lots of sweet grains, sugar, malts, sugary thick malts, low plastic. Taste is fizzy esters, honey, candy dough, sugar, sweet warming, touch boozy, oxidized, honey, warming, caramel, solid. Quite boozy, sugary & malty body. Very monolithic, could use more complexity. Good ‘though but not exceptional, decent Belgian.

simardsam (261) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 31, 2015
Dorée/orangée, trouble, avec un bon col de mousse crème. Nez acidulé, de pommes, de cuir et d’abricots confits. Goût citronné, fruité, de pommes, de cuir, sucré, d’abricots et d’alcool. C’est un bombe en bouche, toutes les flaveurs arrivent en même temps et il faut être attentif pour bien décortiquer le tout. Il s’agit d’un délicieux nectar!

42nd Floor Tasting. Hazy gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and semi dry, decent fine carbonation. Light malts, mild creamy sweetness. Little apple sweetness, generic fruits well buried underneath. Some brandy spice. Light finish. Hangs together very well indeed. Nicely balanced and integrated and dangerously drinkable.
