Bottle shared at GRG1313’s tasting.

Bottled 7/2008.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is malt, caramel, toffee, and yeast aromas. Taste is much the same with caramel and yeast flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

Version with a bit lower alcohol: 10.5%. Cork popped up vigorously. Bright golden color with lots of head with long retention and leaving marks. Bubbles keep going up for a long time.
Nice citric aroma, not sour (better than DeuS) towards oranges, also malt, champagne, yeast and vanilla.
Similarly, sweet flavor of overripe oranges, pineapples and apples, malt and honey. Some booze, warming, not aggressive.
Medium body with good carbonation. Champagne like sensation.
Classy beer, reminded me of Belgian strong ales. I would have liked less sweet (I also found DeuS overly sweet as it warmed up). Sincerely, it is not much behind DeuS, and luckily (or evolution) this one was even more rounded up. Nevertheless, this is not my preferred style, I couldn’t help to compared them to apple ciders, which I am not fond of (and sometimes I liked to be polemic). But this is perfect for desserts (a bit expensive for this reason in my opinion, unless you dig sugar highs). Suggestion, drink it close to expiration date, it worked well for me.

2006 stamped on the cork.

Cork pops! Some foam slowly starts to creep out. High carbonation. Pours a dark honey colour, carbonation steams, with a large off-white head. Aroma is a tad funky, bready, with some fruit notes. Taste is fruity, with a hint of musk and apple skins. No lacking in carbonation on this one. It's definitely effervescent. But, there's some creaminess and body there too.

Only my second Biere de Champange, but this is by far the better of the two.

750ml bottle served in a Thumbler.

A: Beautiful bottle art. Corked dark green glass bottle. White label. Makes a big champagne pop when opened. Pours a deep orange color. Bit cloudy. Forms a huge creamy yellow head which leaves a lot of chunks of foam and lacings in the glass

S: Great sweet fruity and yeasty smell. White grapes, pears, strong notes of oak, champagne and Belgian yeasts. Toffee and caramel. Light alcohol in the end

T: Pretty much like the nose. Caramel malts. Sweet upfront but not overwhelming. Slightly bitter end

M: Heavy molasses body. Strong fizzy live carbonation. Yeasty and woody aftertaste

O: Great drinkability. One of the best Brazilian beers I've ever had

This bottle did not pop. Temperature just below room temperature. Lager yeast, a hoppy lager with significant yeast. Big lace on yellow head. Carbonation right there.Bit of an acidic finish. Interesting but unexceptional.Courtesy of Ralph who shared.

2006 Bottle cellared for about 2 years.

A: It was a fairly bright amber color. There was quite a bit of lively carbonation and the bottle had the loudest pop out of any non infected beer that I have ever had. There was also quite a bit of floaties in the beer.

S: The nose was quite fruity with a touch of smoke to it. Quite a bit of esters for the style. Little bit of bubblegum. Kind of a weird nose especially for the style.

T: The smokey note really became more pronounced as the beer warmed up but I enjoyed it. Not to style though. It was quite fruity as well. Almost was like a belgian strong ale.

M: The carbonation was spot on. Lively and vibrant.

D: A miss for me but I need to explore this style more. The fruity esters and the smokiness were interesting but totally off style. I enjoyed the beer but I am glad we split the bottle. A good beer for sure but for the price....

Bottle cork said 2006, bottle in Portuguese, then bottle said VAL 07 2008. No idea what this means.
A: Champagne pop, A bit of a gusher. Foam was about half of the glass at first. Pours a nice reddish yellow. On top of the foam and throughout the beer there are brown protein clusters, threw me off a bit, thought it was yeast.
Oh yeah, After the initial pour, the beer left in the bottle gradually crept up and would have overflowed had we not noticed it.

S: Belgian smelling, has some big brett smells at first, but this beer changed a lot over time. It faded into an almost orange peel smell.

T: Has a mild tart flavor at first, that fades to a citrus, almost orange peel flavor, then it changed towards an apple juice type flavor. noticeable alcohol at the finish and finishes like a champagne.

M/D: This beer was very similar to a champagne, but there was a lot going on. Tons of carbonation, this beer changed a lot through the drink. One of the more interesting beers I have had in a long time.

Bottle brought by someone over at dbuckingham's place.

A bit of a gusher. Pours clear golden with a huge white head billowing up the glass.

Big brett and champagne on the aroma with slight smoky rubbery notes. Infection?

On the flavor, yeah, there's an infection. Smoky burnt rubber, brett, cattiness, champagne, and some pale malt. Not terrible despite the infection, but really not good.

Medium-bodied with very lively carbonation that the infection no doubt aided.

Overall, could be worse, but was pretty off. Watch out for this one.

A-pours a golden color, bright, slight haze to it with some sediment floating around. the head is fluffy and bubbly with an off white head.

S-hints of sourness with a touch of funky earthiness. notes of bubblegum, vinegar, chocolate undertones.

T-lots of sourness in the taste, an earthy soil like funk, dry chocolate, tobacco, smoked peat, hints of peach and bubblegum in the back.

M-rough and grainy on the palate, messy carbonation, astringent in the back, medium body.

D-a little rough on the palate with the huge carbonation and extremely grainy feel. the flavors are interesting, not bad but they don't seem to mesh that well together.

Served in DeuS glass.

Have your glass ready for Lust -- uncork and after a brief pause, it comes gushing out! This has been a repeat experience each time I have served Lust. (Just a warning, so you don't lose any beer!)

Unique, complex. Sweet and dry. Fruity and spicy. Notes of honey and smokey peat. Peaty, earthiness is slightly reminiscent of mushrooms (in a good way, if you can say that for a premium beer!). Warming alcohol. Sparkly, bubbly carbonation.

I finally decided to crack this baby in rememberance of a good mate,it pours a nice deep orange,amber hue with beautiful carbonation that leaves a creamy two finger head with average lacing here and there,the aroma is definately a cross of champagne and beer with some sweet malty undertones and to be honest i like this aroma its definately a first for me,it has a nice weighty mouthfeel compared to the usual light mouthfeel of a fine champagne and this really keeps me interested as obviously a nice champagne would not have a full mouthfeel so i really feel the beer takes over in this brew and it is a sensational blend of sweet and bitter and i could drink it all night if it wasnt so expensive,if you see this brew and have never tried it you should definately give it a go cheers.

This beer pours into a wine glass with a dark amber color and a very white, very fast head. This beer is highly carbonated and the cork blew off like a champagne bottle, hard and all the way across the room. The smell is similar to wine but not too overpoweringly sour. The taste is dry and fairly easy to drink. Obviously with the high carbonation, the beer sort of bubbles across the tongue, then finishes with an easy and sweet aftertaste. Somewhat similar in flavor to a lambic but without the extreme sour aspect that many have. Absolutely a different beer and one worth trying but not sure that I would be getting this one on a regular basis as it's more like champagne then beer and runs about $25 a bottle. Check it out if you get a chance.

It is reasonable to expect two things of a beer produced in the traditional champenoise method: a light, crystal clear complexion and lots and lots of bubbles. While this Bière Brut certainly has an above ample share of carbonation - so much so that much of it swiftly found its way to the floor - its orangey hue is rather heavy. Its radiance, however, is unaffected; yeast sediment* muddies clarity but fails to obscure the beer's colourful glow.

Lust certainly smells more like beer than wine but that's not to say it smells entirely like one and not at all the other. The aroma harbors classic notes of both beverages: an alcohol-infused, overripe fruitiness of grapes and the fresh-baked breadiness of grains. That estery component, it should be noted, does not result from the inclusion of any fruit but rather is traced to a typically balmy strain of Belgian yeast.

This 2006 vintage is being enjoyed over a year past the date this brewery advised it would be best before; the flavour, for its part, clearly seems unconcerned by this. A hefty malt bill has emerged from its three months at the winery, secondary fermentation in the bottle, and processes of cuvee, remuage and dégorgement as a rather distinctive tasting beer that offers notes of vanilla, bread, muscat grapes, nutmeg, pear, caramel and mango.

As delicious as this beer tastes I am missing the prickly carbonation of true Champagne. The beer sits heavy on the palate and for all its gushing theatrics upon opening the carbonation seems surprisingly lackadaisical - both big no nos for a beer designed as a refreshing aperitif. That said, the alcohol is scarcely noted and the flavours have a light savoriness that makes the next sip come all the quicker and more enthusiastic.

Little about this reminded me of Champagne. I found it to much more closely resemble a Belgian Strong Pale Ale (of which it makes a fine one). I don't think producers in Belgium have much to fear of the Brazilians. For my money, DeuS and the Malheur family are better Bières Champenoises. Speaking of money, this was good, but not as good as it should be for the price tag carried with it. Luckily ThatWineGuy forked the bill, thanks Ron!

(*Note: The processes of remuage and dégorgement are suppose to remove yeast from the bottle so it is more likely that what I'm observing are actually coagulated proteins.)

Purchased in Dearborn MI at Merchants Fine Wines. The cork states 2006 and the label states "VAL 07 2008" which I believe is the best before date. No matter, this tasted just fine in my book.

On easing the cork off, there was a momentary lull following by a slow swell of heaving caramel head that flowed down the bottle as I attempted to pour the contents into two Maredsous flutes. In the glass, a two to four finger foamy head sat atop an orange-brown hazy liquid. Now if this were a champagne, I'd look for the tiniest of bubbles and lots of staying power as signs of good quality; in a beer brewed and bottled using the same method, I'm finding fairly large bubbles and a lot of suspended yeast particles. There is sticky lace and the head gradually flattened but could be easily regenerated with a swirl despite the fact that it settled into a fairly flat appearing brew.

The smell was of sour fruit, muscat grapes, white wine aroma's, cantaloupe, yeast, soda crackers. The taste features both sweet and sour notes, caramel, toffee, not unlike a good Tripel. The sour notes are dark fruit oriented, with dates and figs coming to mind. Mouth is definitely effervescent, as you might expect, a bit thin in the body but I would expect that with this style. Overall, this is a tasty offering and a bit more complex than I expected. Also, like a good champagne, the ABV is quite palatable and sneaks up on you.

This is a rare style, I believe there are only three of these around the world that are available. I found this to be quite a treat and would heartily recommend you try it, or one of the other champagne style beers, just for the experience. I see this as going over very well in mixed company, either before or after dinner, and quite a conversation piece. After all, what is life all about?
