COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Avec L’Ours, les assembleurs du Trou du diable vous proposent un concept évolutif : chaque assemblage à venir sera distinct, laissant parfois jouer des notes plus intenses, qu’elle soient acidulées, amères ou fruitées. Il s’agira toutefois d’un mélange à vingt pourcents d’une bière de seigle sûre vieillie deux ans en barrique de chêne de Banyuls, et quatre-vingt pourcents de jeune saison. Le nez, aux notes délicates de rancio et de fruits séchés, portera d’abord à croire que nous avons affaire à une bière sûre. La bouche nous proposera aussitôt une bière jeune, acidulée et subtilement boisée, le tout s’étirant en une finale rafraîchissante.

Vill & Syrlig 2016.Unclear golden body with a big white head. Aroma is wheaty with lemon and tart berries. Taste is sour, dough, lity yeast spices, funky and tart fruity end. Quite crisp and nice, lasting aftertaste. Very nice!

Im giving this beer this score, because after a half-hour of searching on RB and not finding the sob, I used the same godamned search on Google and found the bitch on RB! If I would have been Sadam Hussein, I would’ve wiped out a city for that.

pictoman (1067) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 28, 2017
Poured from the tap. Slightly hazy pale yellow with white head. Light apple and acetic acid with mild brett. Finishes a bit quick and dry, almost watery.

Oakes (17129) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 23, 2017
Hazy amber with a thin head. Aroma shows some lactic and some malt. On the palate, pretty tart, still a malty note. Clean if simple version that brings gentle fruitiness.

Arcanor (407) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 18, 2017
750ml bottled in early 2014. 3 years of age and kept in a controlled environment. Pour clear pale orange with a tall long lasting white foam. I lost a bit of beer on the opening du to high pressure. Aroma is a nice balance of barn, wood, pale malt and wild yeast. Taste is lightly tart with wooden notes, fruity and funky. Refreshing, nice acidity, medium body and high carbonation. Long Brett and acid finish.

appearance: hazy yellow, short foamy-to-creamy white head. aroma: fruity, with some lemon zest, pear, apple, and maybe a hint of pineapple; there’s a firm tart funk underneath. taste: delicate flavors; lemongrass, light funk, good tartness. finish: lingering tart, yeasty funk; palate is medium, decent carb. notes: Draft at Owen’s ordinary.

sebletitje (9951) - Enghien, BELGIUM - NOV 14, 2016
Bouteille 75cl, assemblage 014, merci Pierre T. Dorée sur léger trouble, col blanc. Arôme est fruité abricot, boisé de chêne avec un relant un peu Chardonnay. Palais est léger malté, grains, fruité abricot apportant une belle note de douceur et de funk venant de brett? Le tout porte une belle alternance entre suret et côté adouci et un aspect épicé du seigle.

b3shine (8736) - Indiana, USA - OCT 30, 2016
750 ml bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs; thanks DuffMan). This is batch #16 and it’s 6% abv. Looks good; a cloudy golden orange with fluffy white head. Smells and tastes tart and funky with notes of lemon, biscuit, and bread. A touch of grassy hops as well. Mouthfeel is medium-light to medium-bodied, tart, and on the drier side. Tasty.

Swamp_Thing (52) - Florida, USA - SEP 30, 2016
Light, mild, nice. Fruity and slightly sour, more like a mild gueuze than what i was expecting with rye ale on the label. So light it is best on its own or with some mild cheese.
