Thanks again to Jones153 for this one!

Pale golden orange, alittle murky on the second pour, one finger of white head with a bit of lace. Smell is full of fruit, big tropical fruits, pineapple is the most noteable, hoppy nose, the base beer still seems largely undistubed, wine and oak presence is minimal but is still lingering especially at warmer temps. Taste is also fruity and tropical, orange and pineapple, oaky with a light vinious aspect, moderate bitternes, very fruity with a bit of a yeasty aftertaste. Medium carbonation, medium body, nice feel. Really good and much prefered to the base beer, another good offering from DDC.

341ml Bottle from Brouhaha QC for $6 - 2011 Edition

Appearance - Slightly hazy golden colour with an average size white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some fair lacing. The head lasted for around 2-3 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Apples, breads/grains, yeast, wine

Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, breads/grains, and apples. There is also a clove/coriander/yeasty spiciness, some tart citric flavour, and I can taste the wine quite a bit.

Overall - Another winner from DDC. Very complex and and interesting to drink throughout the glass. I'll buy more if I see it again.

2013 Edition 9 month in "pinot noir"

A: Cloudy orange, with white head that still on top, leaving some very nice lacing on the glass

S: Belgian yeast, wine, fruity and wood.

T: At first taste like the original Derniere volonté followed by wine character, woody and minimal funky note, look like brett??

M: Medium body, ok carbonation, smooth in the mouth .. look like perfect
sensation on my tongue

O: Pretty impressive very nice beer (expensive in a christmas gift package) 341ml is not enough

11.5oz bottle into a tulip. no bottling date apparent and nothing checked on side.

6.5 % ABV stated on label.

Pours a crisp copper color with a nice inch thick white head with amazing lacing. The smell is very pronounced and big on spices and fruitiness and a lot of malts. The taste is out of this world for the style. Great amounts of funk and spices. I get peppercorns and lemon zest as well as some white grapes. Very enjoyable and unlike any other beer of this style that ive encountered. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. A bombardment of flavors on your palate sip after sip.

Overall picked this up randomly at Bestway in Greensboro never having heard of it, and it probably having been on the shelf for a good while. SO glad i did because this was a real gem.
