Great Cru! Everything about this beer is enjoyable if you like sour beers (as I do). Sour aroma, dark milky brown appearance, sour/sweet taste, lingering aftertaste (which is good in this case). A must try!

Arcanor (406) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 11, 2017
330ml bottled 2016-05-12.

Pour clear mahogany with a nice off-white foam that completely disappear.
Aroma of sour black cherries, molasse and wood.
Taste is of sweet black cherries vinegar, wood and ashes notes.
Medium to high body and low to medium carbonation. Long cherries skin and tart finish.

330ml bottled 2014-05-16. Kept in a temperature (14 celsius) and light (pitch black) controlled environment.
The cherries and wood is more blended, less present and faded. So this brew is not interesting pass 3 years. 7-4-7-4-14 3.6

A perfect sour. Tart fruity. Very enjoyable. No vinegar without pushing imagination only on the nose. Very nice. Nice head. Excellent. This is what a sour should be. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Frudel (236) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 2, 2017
An amber, reddish liquid flows into the glass, with no head and no bubbles. Cant get calmer than this. Nose is lambic, acetic acid, dried fruits, lovely! Taste is not too sour, super well balanced, some sweetness still there, dark dried fruits, like figs and prunes, the glass goes down by itself. Complexity ++. Well done!
