Delicious, beautiful dark purple pour, nicely bitter thats fruity and refreshing puckering to that point of almost savory tart, yum yum yum. j12601 (12000) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 11, 2017
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear garnet with a medium sized pink to white head. Fruit on the nose, berries, dark juice, wood, a bit of musk and funk. Medium bodied, tangy and bright, acid and carbonation are delicate but cutting. Tangy into the finish, bright acid, tart fruit, acidity. Lovely and fun.

Deep red, not much head. Nose is black currant, mostly. Tart, bit thin, lots of currant, but if you’re looking for a payoff more than that you’ll be disappointed.

On tap at the Commons. Poured a ruby color with a small sized pink head. Currants, berries, fruity and a lighter tart finish. mathieuc (3990) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 11, 2016
Pours a hazy golden (uh?) with a small white head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of berries, currants I guess, lightly jammy. Taste is lightly vegetal and quite a bit puckering with a high level of citric acidity. More astringent currants. Body is light, carbonation moderate and mouthfeel is vinous/tannic. Pretty good if not just a tiny bit too acidic.

Pours hazy salmon with low off-white head. Aroma is of fruits, raspberries. Taste is of fruits, raspberries, acidity. Palate: Light-medium body. Medium-high carbonation. Overall: Very nice stuff. Awesome fruits. Feels fresh. tom10101 (6084) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 11, 2016
Bottle (750 ml) at tasting. Shared by mathieuc, thanks! Clear orangey with a small white head leaving little lacing. Aroma is super perfumy to the point of being cloying along berries, grape juice and mild wood spiciness. Taste is of berries but find a way to be super perfumy as well. There’s grape juice again which gives the beer a kind of unpleasant juicy sweetness and mild spiciness from the oak. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Grape juice finish. Way too perfumy. Hard to drink. Not my kind of beer at all. czar (9076) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 8, 2016
pours hazy/cloudy bright golden orange with a small white cap, creamy lacing. blue cheese, berries - miscellaneous with their astringent/woodsy seeds; but also some citrus - clementines; spicy berry fruitiness. moderate carbonation, light body; firmly tart if not a bit puckering and fruity-spicy finish. cheesy and berry-fruity. o-k. JulienHuxley (5809) - Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 8, 2016
Bottle shared. Lightly hazy peach color with thin white head, quite fruity. Aroma is perfumy, grape juice, blueberry, very fruity. Taste is tart, fruity, old beer, very oxidized, wet paper. Meh. chinchill (5011) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 3, 2016
Shared large bottle
Pinkish, hazy body with a good head.
Lightly sour and funky aroma. Tart and fruity flavor with cleat input from the black currants.
Overall: very fine for style.
