Le Coq est une bière de seigle sûre vieillie deux ans en barriques de chêne de Banyuls à laquelle ont été ajoutées, pour une maturation d’un mois, 450 livres de cerises sûres. Il en résulte une bête ambrée et fière, à la coiffe tenace, qui présente au nez des notes lambiquées, sur fond de griottes et de sucre d’orge. Son corps mince chante dès l’aube des notes vives, au fruité fort généreux, saisissante attaque qui éveille les sens. Le tout s’étire dans une finale vineuse, légèrement oxydative, véritable ode au rafraîchissement qui pousse à la récidive. « C’est le coq qu’on entend crier, jamais le boeuf » - Félix Leclerc

Kauge (2127) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 6, 2017
Tap sample at Birreria Volo. Dark red with small head. Lovely sweet and sour cherries character. More skin than pulp. Citric acid. Mineral. Sticky and then dry. Can't really get the rye in here... Overall a bit too agressive for my taste but still nice.

Pours a ruby red with no head. Aroma is fairly light, oak is most prevalent initially. If you really get your nose in there, the cherry presents itself. The taste is much more complex, a real rollercoaster of flavours. A good mix of sweet and sour, a bit of carbonation bite as it goes down.

Bright red color, no head. Mild cherry aroma, no depth. Sour mouthfeel, a bit astringent, light cherry juicy, but not many dimensions. Ok beer.

June 11, 2014 - at Mondiale 2014 - bottle pour. Clear bubbly amber with a smallish off-white head. Sour aroma - vinegar, light floral funk, tart fruit - good, just a tad mild (8-). Taste is hard to describe - flemish sour, sweet fruity malt, lime, lime zest, even a hint of salt - a bit nutty and bitter too; so much going on. Thin body, mild carbonation, mid-level acidity - finishes quick, off-dry, a little tart lemon and fruit in the aftertaste. Good stuff.

Vill & Syrlig 2016. Dark copper body with a tiny beige head. Aroma of cherries, vanilla, funky yeast. Taste is wooden, sour, cherries and tart fruitiness at the end. Acidic and dry, strong cherry finish with amn appealing sourness.

fiery1 (1753) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 25, 2017
750ml bottle @ the office. Pours a rosé red. Nose has a subtle maraschino cherry note. Flavour is a nice subtle cherry however quite simple and lacking depth or complexity.

Oakes (19013) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 14, 2017
Slightly hazy red, with a bubbly head. Abundant cherry nose. On the palate it has a lot of bright, fresh cherry and a fairly simple, clean lactic note. Good, but I have to admit I’d like another layer.

omhper (25808) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2017
Bottled at Brother’s Beer Bistro, Ottawa. Bright hazy red, small head. Vinous red currant aroma. Cherries and vanilla. Hints of vinegar. Slender and well rounded. Juicy and complex. Low bitterness

sir__v (2630) - FRANCE - FEB 21, 2017
Bottle shared by Carbo, thanks - Color: clear amber beer with no carbonation and no foam. Smell: sourness and grassy with brett notes. Taste: medium body with brett domination and sourness. Hay and grassy. Good attenuation. Quiet drinkable. Aftertaste: sourness and fresh grassy taste. OK.
