The beer is golden yellow in color white a pretty amazing white head that sits on top of it. Tenacious head and very sticky. Dense too. Peach with some sourness in the aroma. Slight sugars presence in the aroma too.

Taste is sour with a very dry finish. Bitter too. The bitterness lingers in the mouth it's amazing. Very good beer. After a couple of sips and as it gets warmer, I get some roasted bread. Nice.

This is a pretty good beer. The only bad thing it's the price.

Poor from a 750ml bottle. Brewed March 2012.
It's a saison that was matured in white wine barrel for 6 months with wild yeast (Brett).

A: Nice look. A blond beer with a thick head that have a grape/peach taste.
S: Grapes, peach and a little bit sour.
T: Very fruity : grapes and peach again, but there's a lot of white wine caracteristics (fruitiness + sweetness + dryness of the beer).
MF: So enjoyable. The sweetness, the sour mix really well. One of the best beer I had ever!

Bottle shared by Luk13 &/or Julien at our big JP tasting. Thanks for visiting guys!
Labeled a "strong ale" but easily reviewed as a barrel aged saison, Dulcis Succubus poured with a nice, clean 1.5 finger head on top of a light amber, copper tinted color. I got wine, oak, and what seemed to be a whisky-like note on the nose. Taste included tons of oak, dry grape, and vanilla which all seemed to linger on past the finish. Some mustiness, brett, and a little pepper are present as well. This beer was one of the highlights of the tasting we had and I could easily drink a bottle to myself. Love the label too.

750ml bottle poured into tulip 18/3/13

A clear golden yellow with tiny bubbles popping up everywhere, two fingers of bone white head quickly falls to a thick film that leaves a couple partial rings followed by some random patches

S Where to start? the funk's there, lots of vinous notes both sweet and dry white if that makes any sense at all. The oaks strong, I get some of the floral honey and vanilla I read on the bottle but not the apricot, apple and pear instead, some spice and very faint bubblegum, smells amazing

T more barrel then the nose and some citrus and faint pine I didn't smell, the hops haven't faded all that much but I wasn't really picking the hops up on the nose. The smell was hard act to follow but I'm grooving on the flavors as well, tasty stuff

M medium bodied with the tiny bubbles working well but stopping short of creamy, a little earthy rind on the finish

O I've little to complain about and much to praise, its a sexy beer start to finish with the barrel working wonders for it

Very interesting brew going on here, quite complex and I could see this being a completely different beer in a year, I'm guessing this one would evolve for some time and I'm going to find out even if it costs an arm and a leg

Thanks to Denise for cracking this special bottle today.

Orange-copper pour with plenty of redness. Great head, retention, and lace. Strong Brett aroma brings tartness along with tons of funky yeast. Grape-y wine qualities too. Spicy.

Great balance of flavors here with grapes, yeast, a touch of sweet malt, and a super dry finish. Slightly tart with citrus complexity. Huge, creamy body & perfectly carbonated. A stand-out brew in a style that's rarely fully satisfying.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Semi-opaque, golden colour. Puffy and stubborn head eventually reduces to a film.

S: Peaches, pears, apricot, and a layer of mustiness.

T: Opens up with strong oaky barrel character and that persists the whole way through for me. Lots of fruit (same as the nose) and that musty skin character of the brett, which opens up further in subsequent glasses from the bottle. The sourness is almost gueuze-like, much older and more developed character than typical in the saison-brett's I've had. This is an outstanding one. Gueuze like acidity as well.

M: Crisp, semi-dry.

O: An absolutely outstanding example of a farmhouse ale. Premium price, but I think it lives up to it.
