Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

This amazing beer was created the day we commemorated the 7th anniversary of the Brasserie des Franches-Montagnes. The opening days, held every year on the first Saturday of November, are the opportunity for the brewer to devise a new recipe.
This one-off impressed B. United International Inc.'s boss so much that he asked for it to be brewed again just for you lot across the Pond. It is brewed using a combination of 6 aroma hop varieties, which give it a moderate bitterness and a complex bouquet evolving over time. Yes, because Cuvee Du 7eme will improve over time, you should stash it away in a cellar.

This is a 330 mL flip top bottle.

A: The ale is dark in color with a thick ring of head that twice overflowed.

S: The ale has a musky yeast aroma that implies a good bit of strength in the ale.

T: The ale has a strong alcohol flavor that is underscored by alefruits, some figs and dates primarily.

M: The mouthfeel is a little rough, as the yeast and the alcohol give the beer a strong flavor.

D: Not a bad beer but nowhere near the best in the nebulous style.

2006 Vintage.

750ml split and poured into Chimay chalice.

A- Pours a deep burgundy with a nice haze to it. A half fingers worth of head and leaves some lacing on the side of the glass.

S- Some nice unexpected funk, grapes and a nice malt presence. A little bit of brown sugar. The age on this has added some complexities.

T- Taste falls way short of the nose. Pretty malt forward and almost a smokiness to it. No real tartness that was detected in the nose but some dark fruits are noticeable, most notably cranberry.

M- Medium bodied with decent carbonation. Just a hint of tartness and pretty dry on the finish.

D- A nice complex smell but the flavor is a little confusing. The 4 years on it has definitely changed this beer. I would like to try it fresh to see what the age has done to it. Interesting but nothing spectacular.

Pop! The bottle opened, cold gases streamed out, condensing water vapor, and a mini-volcano of foam commenced. After it was contained and poured into a snifter, I had to sit back and gape at the head. Massive. The beer itself was a beautiful color, a cloudy orange, and the head stuck nicely to the glass.

I wish I'd read the reviews on this one before trying it (or tried to convert the label's suggestion for serving at 10 to 12 degrees C to Farenheit) -- I had it fairly cold, which may have hurt my impressions of it. Overall, I was unimpressed -- it had all the elements of Belgian styles -- fruity yeast, spices, dark fruit -- but they were dominated by the booziness. I didn't even finish my glass. I wonder if 5 degrees C would have made all the difference.

I bought a big bag of beers at Eagle Provisions today and I noticed there was a little leakage which came from this bottle with the Grolsch style cap. So i wasn't planning on drinking tonight but I figured I should have this in case it was going to go bad. It opened with a thunderous pop though so my fears were probably unjustified. Oh well time to have my first Swiss beer.

A-Pale cloudy brown with a thick cream coloured fluffy dense three fingered head. Settles down into a nice one finger cap and leaves sheets of lace.

S-Spices and more spices. Also very yeasty and slightly sweet from the caramelised malt. The spices I am getting are cinnamon, maybe a twinge of black pepper and some cardamom.

T-Not as sweet as I was expecting. There is a minorsweet caramel start followed up by a deep bitterness that complements it well. The follow through reveals some raw alcohol notes which turn me off a bit. Still this is very interesting as there are a good deal of spice notes throughout and a bit of black pepper in the aftertaste.

M-Lighter than I would have thought with a effervescent champagne like carbonation.

D-Very interesting brew but the alcohol burn in the end at the back of the throat is a little much for me. An interesting choice though and in no way a bad beer, but not one I will go out of my way to get again.

750 ml - 2006

A: Poured a hazy/cloudy ruby-ish amber color with a huge off-white head with amazing retention. Leads to a decent amount of lacing.

S: very sour esters. Tart green apples, some sour citrus as well.

T: This hasn't mellowed much over the past year or so, and if it did it is too hard to tell. Very tart/sour which kind of destroys any flavors coming in. Mostly sour citrus. You can also taste the alcohol right behind the initial sours.

M: Good mouthfeel, carbonation is a little too high. Very interesting palate, sours with a hint of sweetness.

D: very interesting beer. Not quite what I expected but I look sour beers, and this one was very sour. I wouldn't mind letting one age for a few more years. I think some time will mellow this one out.

Poured this 33 cL brown bottle swingtop into a Tripel Karmeliet glass. No date. The body was a dull peach nectar golden brown color. A film of head stayed throughout.

Smell was of dusty Belgian yeast. Dark stone fruits and apricots. Dank. Vinous. Interesting.

Taste was tangy. Fruity. There was a biter building aftertaste.

Mouthfeel was medium to full. Mouthfilling carbonation.

Poured from 750ml bottle (2006) into Duvel tulip. Bottle courtesy of trxxpaxxs in an awesome BIF box.

Appearance: Body color is a deep dark orange up close, solid brown from afar. Head is about a finger and a half of a light brown head. Decent lacing.

Smell: Very earthy and full of the musky smells of age. Farmhouse odors lay the base, and there's some tart cherry in there trying to poke through. Up to this point I'd swear this to be a Flanders Bruin.

Taste: Definitely not a Flanders anything… Very earthy with a good bit of oxidization taste. Very musty and funky - this has a little bit of fruit flavor, but not what I would have expected. It's certainly tart, but definitely not puckeringly sour. Basement is the first word that comes to mind…

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, with strong carbonation. It feels pretty good in the mouth.

Drinkability: Low to moderate. Split a large bottle - it's not the alcohol, I just don't know if anyone really needs a full 750 of this.

Overall: I guess the short assessment is that this beer is a little past its prime. It's still complex and enjoyable, but the signs of age are potent in this one. So if you don't like that basement funk flavor, avoid.

Thanks to Doppel07/Whaleman for this...
Appears an orange amber with a fluffy light tan head. Tons of scattered lacing is left around the glass.
Smell is of a decent hop presence that is sweet, along with a malt presence that contains notes of herbs, citrus, vanilla cream, and mild toasted nuts.
Taste is of the same aromas with the same sugary blend that seems to fit together in an interesting mix.
Mouthfeel is sweet up front and fading to the back of the tongue in a medium bodied brew.

A 33cl bottle is poured into a tulip glass. There is no sticker indicating when this was bottled.

The beer is slightly hazy and has the color of dirty copper. A uniform head made up of tiny off-white bubbles rests on top. There is a good amount of clinging carbonation at the bottle of the glass. Swirling leaves a good amount of foamy film behind.

The aroma is very earthy. A can smell a good portion of toffee malts. There are some grass scents from the aroma hops.

The beer has a very enjoyable flavor. It is ever so slightly tart in the finish, which is a welcome surprise. Toffee and caramel malts provide a very good malt presence. It is a little sweet, but not overwhelming. There is a low level of bitterness.

The beer feels a little thick, but the carbonation is average. It's not sticky, but there is a film left behind. It is somewhat flavorful. The tartness in the finish provides a puckering sensation.

This is an interesting beer. I'm glad I tried it, but it's not one I'd go out of my way for, nor will I be buying a bunch of them to cellar.

Appearance: Pours a hazy amber with a big foamy, off-white head.

Smell: Pretty funky, horsey, pungent nose, with some biscuity malts showing.

Taste: Lemongrass, orange rind, white pepper in the finish. Very nice flavorful tangy beer.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied, highly carbonated, acidic, tangy.

Drinkability: I could split this with another person. Very drinkable, and acidic would be great with some rich food.

Fresh on tap at Lord Hobo in Cambridge, MA

Absolute no head at all, even with a two foot pour. At first I thought wasn't even any bubbles but on very close inspection there are some minuscule bubbles on a quarter of the rim. Obviously no head. Dark amber color with strong orange overtones. Some haze.

Strong licorice aroma (anise?). Smells medicinal.

Interesting flavor of caramel and sweet cherry. The anise is present, but less so. Very unusual. Soft and short aftertaste. Great combination of sweetness and licorice. Full bodied with nearly no carbonation.

Serving type: on-tap

I had very high hopes for this beer as it cost me $6.99 from BierKraft in Brooklyn. As suggested on the label, I let it warm to just below cellar temperature (50º-53ºF) before tasting it.

It opened with a 'crack', and was a bit hard to pour as even the initial liquid foamed up immensely (not that hasn't happened to me with some of my favorite Belgian beers), but once that settled a bit I was able to fill the goblet. It delivered a cloudy deep-chestnut colored body beneath a thick-thumb of frothy yellowed-antique-white. Over time the head died down, but a continual creamy covering was maintained, and it left walls of thick and creamy lace about the glass. Nice!

The nose was yeasty and spicy. The label reads that it's made with 6 aroma hops, but I didn't really get a whole lot of hops at all - what was there was floral and spicy (although the spice may have been from the yeast).

Although it had a massive carbonation to begin with, most of that was released during the pour, and it was gently effervescent with a tingle on the tongue and a smooth, medium-light body.

The flavor was very much as the nose indicated, with spice and yeast (that's both "yeast", and yeasty fruitiness) over a lightly sweet, subtly candyish, mildly chocolate-tinged malt, and an alcohol-soaked raisin side. The bitterness was brisk and solid underneath, and it finished dry with a wash of alcohol and some lingering spice (seems almost like dull nutmeg and all-spice, but it's probably clove).

Overall, I found it to be poorly made, with characteristics of a high fermentation temperature; and a general lack of interesting character, and by that I mean that it lacked flavor - it certainly has a large amount of flavor - it doesn't seem to have any real depth or complexity. Maybe I had a bad bottle. Maybe it was poorly stored. But as a professional brewer for over a decade, I think I can see through that... this is just not focused enough.

Thanks goes to wisconsinality for busting this one out on a random Thursday.

A: Poured into my standard pint the beer is dark golden orange. Full two fingers of cream hued head. Tons of sticky lace left behind.

S: The aroma is complex and mistifying at the same time. A modest funk greets me initially. Lots of tart green apples and hints of wood. This smells a lot like a tame wild ale.

T: Dry tart funk with a solid dose of green apples and dusty attic wood. The hops have faded into a musty bitterness that seems to overpower what might have been a solid wild ale.

M: Light body with modest carbonation.

D: Overall a unique and interesting beer for sure. Glad to have tried this one. One glass is enough for me though.

Pours a cloudy dark amber color with a 2 finger off-white head that sticks around pretty well and leaves a touch of lacing. Smells very interesting - some sweet caramel with some odd piny hops I think. Some other notes that I can't quite identify and I wouldn't necessarily call good (but not all that bad either).

Upon first taste, I am not a huge fan. This is no Belgian Strong Dark Ale. Relatively well hopped with piny hops with a lot of spicing and some qualities reminiscent of saisons. Relatively dry, with some astringency. Some toffee sweetness is back there. Bitterness and spiciness lingers. Might be some oxidation as well, and a bit of musky qualities - actually, kind of a woody sort of taste.

Mouthfeel is slightly sharp but enjoyable. Drinkability is pretty good.

An interesting, slightly odd beer. Some qualities here that some might not enjoy, but different enough to keep it interesting. I am wondering if this came together better fresh though (although, I haven't had this bottle that long). Would I buy again? Probably not. But, it was worth a try.

Bottle is from 2006 #00276. 8oz sample poured from 750ml bottle into snifter on 05/17/2011.
Pours amber with darker edges. Fine-bead white head with good retention and slight lace. The nose is of earth, citrus, champagne, and grape. There is a slightly sour twang, with some grape juice, a touch of malt... sweet but balanced. Medium bodied and spritzy medium carbonation. Good beer that drinks like a champagne. Interesting ale indeed.

I'll admit to picking this one up by mistake, thinking it was another brew. Not really even sure what to expect here, so this is totally blind. Poured from a bottle into a tulip.

A: This looks like a gorgeous caramel. Like a glass full of caramel. I want this thing to be caramel right now. Setting myself up for failure? We'll see.

S: Smells like a sour. Sour fruit, but not particularly citrusy. Earthy, too. Apples, grapes...hmm...

T: Earthy, with sour notes. Apple-y, but not like a granny smith apple; more like a sour red apple. Can definitely feel the sediment in the aftertaste.

M: Watery. Not quite enough carbonation. Almost leaves a negative aftertaste.

O: For not knowing what to expect, it's not a bad beer. I'll enjoy it. Probably won't be picking up any more, though...

I picked up this bottle for $8 (way expensive) in Boston. The bottle was capped Grolsch-style flip-top, and when I popped it there was a little foam spillage. The beer was really hazy, orange colored, with surprisingly little foam given the situation when I opened the bottle. The aroma was complex I guess, possibly it could be described as a mess but I liked all the funkiness. It was earthy and musty, smelling a lot like a sour wild ale. I don't think I'd call this a Belgian dark ale, I think it's mis-categoried on BA. The taste is sour and funky, very tasty but maybe difficult to rate too high on drinkability. I can't pound a beer like this, it's more of a contemplative sipper.

Pours a very hazy dark muddy brown with a full four fingers worth of head that fades slowly to a thin soapy cap. The subsequent lacing is a bit tattered and broken.

Smell; very yeasty, almost dusty aroma, with some dark fruits and sweet malts mixed in. Surprisingly, there’s a little little bit of a floral hop aroma, with just some touches of citrus as well.

Taste; the yeast isn’t quite so strong as it was in the aroma, but still very evident. Dark fruits and sweet malts fill out the middle of theis beers, and then some floral hops come out. There also seems to be a bit of a smokiness to this as well.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, and maybe a touch on the syrupy side, with a pretty good drinkability. Not really a beer I’d like to drik all of the time, but certainly a nice change of pace time of beer.

Palate is a medium body, light carbonation, mildly tart flavor. Finishes with Belgian yeast, fruity, plums and raisins, ending I’d mildly sweet tart and fruity. Overall a good drinking Belgian brew.

Pours a dusky, dingy orange amber. The head on this beer is massive to the point of being a PITA, and it sticks around forever. Soft, yeasty, spicy aroma that only really comes out at higher temperatures (contrary to the temperature serving instructions on the bottle). Also emerging at warmer temperatures are some smooth candi sugar notes. As for the taste, it's very tight at colder temperatures. It's initially sharp with hops before shifting into spice mode, but it's thin when cool. At room temperature, everything gets richer and much more in line with what I'd expect from a Beglian strong dark ale. Mouthfeel at room temp is on the heavy, sticky side of things for a beer, but light for a Belgian dark.

I can't stress enough that this is a beer that benefits from drinking at room temperature. At the lower temperatures I was very disappointed in this one, mostly due to the quality of other beers from this brewery and what this one costs. But at higher temperatures it's a very high quality beer. Probably still not worth the cost, but very good.

Thoroughly over carbonated, the beer starts to foam up as soon as I pop the cap, this active bottle is definitely sitting in the sink where it can foam at its leisure. I am able to get maybe two-fingers of beer in my glass with the rest being foam, including a good two-fingers above the rim of my glass. The head is a light tan color and sits on top of a reddish-pink tinged, copper colored brew that is almost brilliantly clear. The aroma is quite interesting, a mix of damp, earthy / musty notes, ripe fruit and malt. Amped up notes of red apple, plums, candied tropical fruit are offset by a mix of malt and funky notes. The malt leans toward toasted grain, crushed malt and biscuit notes while the funky notes provide an overripe fruitiness and a touch of musty funk.

Lightly sweet, but it finishes with a sharp, substantial bitterness as well as a bit of musty funkiness. The beer is quite light bodied, almost surprisingly given the perceived sweetness, though I think a lot of the sweetness is accentuated by the amped up fruit character of this brew. The fruit notes lean towards a mix of strawberries, rip melons, berries, plum and blood oranges. The fruitiness seems a bit over-ripe, which is really where the funkiness comes in to play, but there is a light, musty, damp earthiness here that contributes lightly to the flavor profile. The malt character has all but dissapeared from the flavor, probably reduced by whatever bug has dried this out.

What a strange beer, the mix of hop focus (which has clearly mellowed with age) and weird fruity funkiness (was this even intended) can be a bit confusing at times. I admit though that the two don't really get in the way of each other. While this may not be the exact vision of the brewer (though maybe it is), it is certainly an interesting, engaging and tasty brew. In the end this is definitely a hop dominated brew, especially since the malt character has been reduced so much by the "wild" bug, but I like the light funky influence.

A- There is a lot of carbonation in the bottle, I definitely had to pour very slowly to avoid an over pour. Poured into a snifter. Pours a brownish amber color with a huge off-white head from all the carbonation.

S- The aroma features some toasted grain and caramel. There was also some dark fruits along with some yeasty and spicy characteristics too.

T- The taste is caramel and dark ripe fruits, along with some spiciness and alcohol in the finish. This is a very nice flavorful beer.

M- The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with a lot of carbonation.

D- Overall, this is a pretty tasty beer that is worth a shot.
