Brewery description, translated from French.

To elaborate, La Rulles Brune (Stout de Gaume) underwent a second fermented for 8 months together with 12.5 % (1/8) of the Tilquin lambic blend in oak barrels. After this the beer was fermented once more in bottles for 6 months. Eh yes, in order to do thing well, one needs to take time… Cheers!

My apologies for any translating errors, my French is not that good.

2 * 15 cl. of bottle samples @ Brassigaume 2013. 75 cl. bottles sampled. Long time in the making this one. Totally gushing bottle, this is still very, very lively at this point, gushing all over the place, keeps foaming even when half emptied. They are still waiting for these bottles to calm down. Dark brown, beige bubbles which fizzy away immediately. Nose is surprisingly huge on geuze despite it constituting only +/- 12 % of this beer. Lots of funk, barn, tart, lemon, barn, complete geuze profile, very nice with a touch of chocolate & faint dark fruits. Taste is chocolate, cocoa, grainy quality with lots of geuze, funk, barn, tart, brett, touch lemon, tangy, lots of lambic, combined with some tart chocolate, light dark fruits. Great combo, brown beer compliments well, lots to love for geuze lovers. First sample had the body of an infected beer but zero defects & highly enjoyable, odd. Second sample had great body. Pretty light & grainy. Body is not top but this beer is wonderful, great combo.
