Bought a 660ml bottle from Quebec.

Poured a clear light brown, once the yeast fell in it really clouded over (so to speak).

Smell - not much in the nose, bitterness. Very difficult to get any sense of what to expect.

Flavor - Yikes. Bitter and Sour...Very Sour....Far Too sour...You can taste the malts hidden under the sour overtones. Almost like a Token Red Ale with lemon juice squeezed in. Very Lemony and sour grape. No real complexity at all. Finishes with a strong bitterness that is a bit much and linger's far too long.

Not my choice of beers. reminds me of a home-brew that just didn't turn out properly.

Appearance: Kind of a dark reddish brown. Very little head. Clumps (clots?) of yeast apparent. I love bottle-conditioned beers, particularly other Quebec ones. This was not normal.

Smell: Nothing particularly strong or memorable. Or maybe I just forgot it because of the taste.

Taste: In this swine flu season, I'm sure many of us have made the mistake of eating a finger food shortly after using an alcohol-based gel hand sanitizer. You can replicate much of the experience of this beer by doing that.

Mouthfeel: Very light carbonation. Seemed flat.

Drinkability: Literally could not drink this. I had one sip from my glass, one sip from my drinking companion's glass to see if something was wrong with mine (perhaps I'd inadvertently sanitized it, I thought, or perhaps it was the fault of the yeast chunks in mine - not so, unfortunately), and then could not drink any more. My drinking companion finished the bottle out of a desire not to waste it and is currently regretting it.

Bottle: Poured a light reddish color ale with a small bubbly head with no retention and no lacing. Aroma is very bland with some light generic malt and nothing close to a Flemish sour as mentioned on the label. Taste is again dominated by some light sweet malt with no oak, no tart notes or any sourness. Light body with limited carbonation. The experience of drinking this beer can be resumed as a big waste of time and money.
