COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
THIS PAGE IS FOR THE BOTTLED VERSION (aged in Syrah barrels). Une IPA vieillie 18 mois en barriques de Syrah californien envahies de brettanomyces. Il en résulte une bière trouble aux accents orangés dont le nez évoque l’eau de rose, le pamplemousse, la vanille et le cuir. En bouche, l’acidité et l’amertume s’engagent dans une longue valse nuptiale, véritable mariage des saveurs qui ne demande qu’à être consommé.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange color with a large white head. A big sour funky nose. The flavor is big sweet fruity banana and berry, funky hay.

Light hazy amber golden colour, white head. Spicy aroma, herbs, malts, light sour touch. Sweet spicy flavour, light sour, brett. Finish herbs, wood and brett. OK beer.
(from 75cL bottle @ ZBF 2014. Thanks for sharing, Tom10101!)

Délicieuse bière sauvage et brettée. Le fût de syrah est un gros plus. On goûte pamplemousse/orange, du funky, du cuir et un beau côté sauvage rappelant les goûts de l’ours. J’ai adoré et j’adorerai toujours la bretteuse. Excellent produit de haute qualité disponible qu’une fois par année si je ne me trompe. Je le recommande, excellent Wild ale.

neongolden (2061) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 20, 2014
(Bottle during Zwanze Day/Funk Night @ barVolo, Sept 20, 2014) Pours a lightly hazed dark orange with a big bubbly lingering white head, lace. Aroma candied red fruit and grape, caramel, wood, nice funky sweaty Brett edge. On the palate, some caramel, red wine barrel, herbal hops, light grapefruit, slightly sweet at first. Cherry and smoke mid palate, Brett, woody. Finish has lots of slightly medicinal bittering hops, wood, lingering Brett. Medium bodied, soft to medium carb, pretty balanced with astringent aftertaste. Fantastic beer really, got all sorts of elements (sweet, funky, hop flavour, wine barrel, bitterness) held in balance but there’s loads to discover. Quite easy to drink as well, knockout beer from TDD - sours/funky things really are their forte.

Bottle at Chris’s place. Thanks, Chris!

Billed as an IPA and closer to that than to the usual wild/sour. Orange peel hops with rose blossom and lots of Brett, wood coming in. Brett heavy in the flavor, a slight touch of honey. There’s this orange thing that comes through strong and balances out all of the brett in a way that makes me wonder why we aren’t seeing more Brett IPAs. The hops are holding strong after 18 months in the barrel.

This one came out of nowhere (for me, at least) to take the night against a very fine lineup of other (mostly wild, sour) beers.

Prufrockstar (2132) - Moscow, Idaho, USA - AUG 11, 2014
Bottle, thanks to mcberko. Pale amber, white head. Really lovely aroma: orange blossom, rose water. Fruity, bretty, delicious aroma. Vanilla (thanks commercial description and broken French -- then vanilla and rose were hard to articulate). Caramel, toast. Taste: good and bretty. Herbal as well. Surprisingly complex, delicate, and delicious. Moderately bitter, dry finish. Alcohol present. Herbal, earthy, fruity. Damn, this is fucking great. Want moar.

sulawang (1217) - - AUG 7, 2014
Visual: Pours deep copper brown with a magnificent ultra-creamy lasting head, superb sticky lacing, a thick layer of retention plus lots and lots of clustered streams. Awesome. Nose: light barnyard with very woody pressed apple cider. Very clean nose. (lvl-8)-pungency Attack: crisp, tingly fizzy Mid-palate: full-bodied, (lvl-5)-sweetness, light-sour + med tangy, (MAIN) super woody, orange peel, caramel malts, pressed apple juice, vanilla, mild alcohol detection Finish: yeasty, grapefruit bitter hops and pulp, lingering woody malt hopped finish. Summary: Excellent complexity, moderately palate-heavy. Great flavours going on; good with a meal. One-and-done solo beer.

RickTheRick (949) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 4, 2014
Orange oxydé, assez trouble et ne moussant que très peu, le bouquet vivifiant de cette bière avec ses houblons fruités et résineux et son aspect sauvage promet une expérience inoubliable et c’est le cas. En bouche, c’est à la fois très fruité, gracieuseté des houblons et du vieillissement en barriques de vin rouge, et funky à cause des bretts. D’une facilité déconcertante à boire, j’aimerais avoir une bouteille pour moi tout seul la prochaine fois. Moi aussi je suis sauvage des fois!

3.9
presario (4925) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 2, 2014
Bottle. Orange amber with a clumping foam. Aroma is a melange of IPA and Brett. Starts out delicate on the tip of tongue and then pounces on the middle. Back end is full of subtle notes; malt, Brett, citrus, wood and spice. Has a bit of roughness to it in the aftertaste, almost chewy.

3.3
bu11zeye (13288) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUN 20, 2014
(750ml bottle) Pours a clear golden body with a small white head. Aroma of earth, horseblanket, pepper, and lemon. Flavor of lemon, brett, earthiness, florals, and subtle vanilla with a dry finish.
