A: Slightly less cloudy than expected, but still the light yellow color, with pure white head. Head is much less frothy than expected too, it seems like they used american yeast for this one. Retention is also not as long as what you'd get with traditional Belgian yeast, but lacing is decent. All in all, a good looking beer.

S: Smell is quite light, but all of the good elements seem there. There is a very good amount of barnyard funk in this, with a solid underlying tartness. There seems to be a solid malt base for the style, but the type of sweetness that it brings seems to blend well with the other smells. Green apples, horse blanket, lemon rind, candi sugar and light sour cherries. Very solid.

T: Well, this is where it falls through. There is much stronger hops presence than what I anticipated. You get quite a solid amount of herbal hops in this that seems to not fit with the traditional lambic that what the smell gave away.Still, you get the rest, the barnyard funk, the pepper, the vanilla (from the barrel), the candi sugar, the green apples, the cherries. A weird kind of mix that isn't bad, but doesn't fit that much together either.

M: Like I said, this is definitely not Belgian yeast. Very very american mouthfeel, creamy, smooth, medium weight and all you expect from this type of yeast. Doesn't fit the style too well, but it isn't a bad mouthfeel either. I'm conflicted here.

O: Although this isn't a bad beer, it isn't worth the 15$ asking price (minimum). It still is a solid sour brew from Quebec, where we don't get much of these. It's OK.

Huge thanks to ygtbsm94 for sharing this at a recent tasting. Served in a mini snifter. Pours a nice yellow color with a good white head. The nose carries nice Brett notes with a bit of earth underneath some hay, stone fruits, light wine, and pineapple. Some lemon comes in through the flavor. Light body and dry finish. Very nicely done beer.

Appearance: light orange, apricot colour; thick, fine, white head - very sticky, good lace

Aroma: vibrant fruit notes; floral; slight hint of mouldy smoke; peach, apricot

Taste & Mouthfeel: was expecting very fruity and some tart flavours, but getting dry mouthfeel and only mild fruit; lot's of the mouldy smoke and ash though; orange, clementine notes have a subtle, juicy presence, accompanied by a light tang

Overall: like the clean citrus flavours that aren't overly tart or sweet, and the smokiness is nice, but it could use a bit more punch
