Smell is sour, malty and fruity with crackers, lemon juice, lemon flavoured yoghurt, moist wood, vanilla fudge, white grapes, lemon zest, bilberry bush leaves, dry pine needles, dry soil, hay and hints of grapefruit juice and barnyard. Taste is very tiny sweet, tiny bitter, sour and malty with white bread, crackers, vanilla, moist wood, lemon juice, white grapes, grapefruit juice, brett, dry pine needles, barnyard, dry soil and hay. Mouthfeel is slightly dry, round, tart and light bodied.

75cl bottle shared with Urbain, merci! Dore prsentant un trouble lger, col blanc. Arme prsente ce bouquet alternant brett, grains et barrique; dans ce cas un chne aux effluves de Bourbon. Je note un subtile bouquet bois tirant sur des notes aigres renforc par un lger ajout vanill. Palais garde un profil assez belge, blonde solide avec un profil aigre trs agrable qui vient juste titiller le fond de la gorge. Le tout est adouci par le mrissage en barrique de bourbon. Ce dernier ajoute complexit et une pointe de douceur vanille. Le houblon est prsent ajoutant une amertume modeste, cela tournant sur un citronn moyen. Au final, une bire encore un peu jeune, et qui promet de se dvelopper avec le temps. En ltat les brett restent modrs sans dominer le profil de la bire. Le Bourbon arrive juste en balance sans pour cela dominer totalement. Reste voir comment les des brett et le bourbon volueront au cours du temps. POur le moment, je voit cette bire plus comme une bire belge avec qcq brett que comme une bire sour. Reste trs correte et complexe.

teddybeer (3698) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 26, 2013
Bottle @ Cervezorama. Hazy pale golden colour with a white head with good duration. Aroma is fruity, good presence of bretts and apples. Flavor is dominated by bretts, with a medium bitterness, fruity notes , mainly apples, similar as a cider and light acidic hints. The final is slightly bittery, dry and a presence od bourbon hints on palate.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2015 Bottle shared by Urbain himself. Pours hazy light yellow with a medium fine bubbly head. Nose is quite subtle: hay, some wooden notes and slight vanilla touch of the bourbon. Light body but what a silky and smooth mouthfeel - waauw! Taste is elderberries, chardonnay wine.

kraddel (7496) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - JUL 24, 2013
Bottle Pours fuzzy light yellow , small white head That fades fast Smell is pretty damn intresting ! Like a sour bourbon , exactly 50/50 , no side wins on the smell Enters like a soft geuze , than goes to a bourbon . I never drank pure bourbon ( accept jack , wich is , according to some , not even real bourbon ) but for the first time in my life i think i can recognize a brand . Wild turkey . Am i right ? That would ve shocking and awsome ! All trough barrel aged beer lol Anyway , the mouthfeel ( and carbo ) of a geuze , imidiatly bourbon takes ocer , with a good sour background . Than the sourness dissapears almost completely . Wich lambic did they use ? For sure it aint boon( bad relationships between struise and boon ) or cantillon ( very recognisable taste ) . Is this 3 fonteinen / de cam / oud beersel maybe ? Anyway , as expected , extremely intresting , and as always with struise , very freaking nice ! Cheers !

Semi clear Golden body, small white head. Aroma, well all the sorbus vinegar and green Apple notes you need. Flavour adds some toffee and acids. Basic treat but really nice.
