This is the most expensive beer (around 20$ for 750ml) I've ever had, so I'll take that in consideration for the review.

Gorgeous foamy head with lots of carbonation visible. Golden in color with good lacing. At first, when I opened the bottle, I smelled a lot of alcohol. But once I had it in my glass it didn't smell that much. There's a good aroma of wild yeast, apple (cider-like) and peach. There's a good balance between sweet flavors (alcohol, apple) and bitterness from the hops. The Brett gives it a nice funky taste too that's quite pleasant and you get also a good taste from the oak used but it's subtle.

Overall it's really really good. Is it worth 20$? Maybe, maybe not, I don't know, but it's definitely one of the best beer I've ever had, I don't regret buying it!

Sour for sure. Tart. Feels alive in your mouth. An apricot kind of flavor going on. Very full bodied.

Hmmm, well it would appear we now have to write reviews in order them to "count". I don't think i'll be able to blast through 989 reviews this evening but a few absolute gems are a must. This beer is easily one of my absolute faves! It's bone dry, vinous, tannic, mildly sour, and delicous. The botrytis from the barrel works incredible magic. I wish more brewers would use such barrels.

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!
