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.

Quevillon (2948) - Boisbriand, Quebec, - JUN 25, 2014
750 ml bottle bought at Dépanneur La Duchesse d’Aiguillon (in Quebec City) on February 6, 2014. Blonde misty, small head. Slightly sour rye aroma, slightly fruity wheat. Light fruity taste of wheat, a little sour, bitter grapefruit. A pretty good assembling!

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.

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.

fiulijn (19614) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 1, 2016
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Cloudy blond color with no head. Sour aroma, a bit of acetic acid. The mouthfeel is dry, moderately sour, lightly lemony, with a very light funky touch. A bit woody and astringent in the final.
Nice.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4767) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 26, 2016
Trou du Diable Ours Blend 6 6% Thanks to Max and Remi for this bottle. It's a clear bright gold with a pear, musty plum and oak tart aroma. Light bodied and dry it is somewhat sweet with sweet tarts, pear, candied fruits and light malts. Easy drinking and something wine drinkers should like. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bière vieilli en barique, une belle acidité. Notes de bois fumé et de fruits. Une bonne TDD.

Beer5000 (6022) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 1, 2016
750 ml bottle @ Kick. Hazy yellow/orange body with a nice, dense white head. Aroma is mild funky/Brett with acidic fruit, lemon, grapefruit and floral. Flavor is super refreshing, acidic fruit and berries with mild malt, farmhouse, lemon, situs zest and a tart fruity finish. Quite light bodied, still in perfect balance with the flavors. Long aftertaste. Very nice, rather light, but distinct in flavors and quite smooth. Lighter and less acidic than your traditional Geuze/Lambic, more like a combination of a fruity Saison and Lambic with a lovely Orval reference, still way more dry and fruity. Lovely and dangerous easy to drink.

LouisP (264) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 13, 2016
Assemblage #9, vieilli près d’un an. L’Ours présente une couleur jaune, même un peu blanche, avec une petite effervescence, et malgré le vieillissement, présente un petit collet. Au nez et en bouche, on trouve en avant-plan beaucoup de levures sauvages, du surette, et est-ce de la brett ou des levures sauvages? Pas certain mais il y a quand même un bel équilibre. Au gout c’est plus complexe, avec des petit fruits sechés, du sucre, de la brett subtile, et un goût de levures de saison Très intéressant, bel assemblage. J’encourage TDD à en faire encore plus souvent!

hopscotch (10707) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 31, 2016
Bottle... Pours cloudy and yellow with a small, foamy, white head. Good retention. A small frothy white collar. The aroma is super fruity - apricot, pluot, plum and lemon. Light-bodied and astringent with stinging carbonation. The flavor is lightly tart, mildly fruity and citric with a Sahara-dry finish. Bottle courtesy of MartinT!

Cloudy pour. The nose is softly fruity. Has a bit of light lactic character and a lean bright zestiness. There’s a bit of light pepper and some nice peppery character. Slightly herbal and a bit peppery. Pretty solid.
