Potentially the 2013 vintage, but it’s hard to discern, so this was maybe a 4 year old bottle. Cloudy deep gold with a thin rocky white head. Big earthy bretty dry nose that’s got a little pineapple and troical tones and dusty Belgian esters. Flavor is the same. Really bretty and dry and tropical with a mellow pineapple like tartness and a dry barnhouse funk. Smooth and complex. zvikar (6149) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - NOV 5, 2016

Pours a golden mahogany brown with fluffy head. Aromas of fruit, funk, and some woody notes. Flavors of tart fruit, some woody character and some brett like finish. Helsdon (383) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2016
Like Brigadier below (sweet profile pic btw) this has been lurking in my cellar (aka basement) for a couple of years. With the rarity of Ommegang in Ontario (we didn’t even get the questionable recent Game of Thrones release) it just didn’t want to crack it. But to the cottage it came for the Canada Day long weekend for its long overdue drinking. Here’s a purely Canadian suggestion to start. Do not drink this with the taste of poutine potato chips lingering in your mouth, it tastes horrible. But once I had my palate set to rights I’m getting sweet malts, mild peach and apricot and a toothless, flat funk that is almost bitterness that lingers into aftertaste with a touch of honey. It just doesn’t have the complexity I was hoping for but I always appreciated a great brewery’s tried, even if they don’t blow me away. kerenmk (4751) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 26, 2016
Bottle sample at DSG’s 10K tasting at the Dancing Camel. Thanks beerandbeyond. Hazy amber-gold with a white head. Sweet honey aroma, some hyssop and chocolate notes. Sweet honey and a little muddy in the mouth. Full body, smooth texture, a little bitter finish.

Bottle sample at DSG’s 10K rating celebration tasting at Dancing Camel, Tel Aviv. Thanks beerandbeyond. Hazy orange with white head. Aroma of sweet candy, floral with some yeasts. Sweet flavor, alcoholic with notes of brett, sugary candy, herbs and some corn, slightly dry. Medium to full-bodied. Very nice. tomer (3514) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - FEB 24, 2016
At a tasting, thanks, small creamy slightly bubbly head, cloudy orange color, aroma of brett and corn, fruity candy sweetness with a nutty hint and a light bitterness, subdued brett character. Not too balanced or exciting. DSG (14764) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 21, 2016
Bottle sample at my (post-)10,000th rating celebration tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks beerandbeyond. Hazy golden. Aroma of fruitiness, honey, cardboard, a bit of alcohol. Sweetish flavor with caramel, yeast, fruitiness, a bit of cardboard, soapy note, and a bitterish hint in the finish. Medium-bodied. generallee08 (772) - New York, USA - NOV 19, 2015
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 750 ml bottle into a tulip glass. The label lists the abv at 8%.
Appearance: The body has a light amber color with soapy light tan head. It has a hazy look and some visible carbonation. The head quickly settles out and lacing is very minimal.
Smell: The aroma has a funky phenolic character with some fruity notes, light grain, and cereal. The fruity notes remind me of unripe mango, sweet passion fruit, and tart apple peels. The sweet fruity notes come out more as the beer sits.
Taste/Palate: It’s mostly sweet and fruity up front. I get pear, apple and a touch of mango. I also get sweet cereal and grainy notes which quickly turn to tart funky yeast and mild bitter hops in the finish. The palate feels smooth and fairly full yet still carbonated.
