oh my god, what is this.
Another very disapointing product from this brewery.
I'd try to give a chance to local brewery, but this is one that I can't sustained anymore. VERY disapointing. I almost feel sory for them.

Pouring nutty in colour, hazy and forming a little whitish head that is vanishing quickly.
Nose is awfull, lactic. Barnyard and wet herbal note.
Mouth is disgusting! Acid, dry with high carbonation. This almost feels artificial. Won't even try to figure out what flavours is coming out of this brew.
Too bad. Don't seek for this beer.

Yeasty fruity aroma, massive head, hard to pour. Very sweet, fruity with coriander and good carbonation. Alcohol is not noticeable.

It does seem to be a bit of a challenge to the pallette with a lot going on, but it is not all bad.

I tend to prefer my beer with a little more hops and less fruit and therefore would not chase this down, but wouldn't turn one down if offered.

Pours dark ruby with thick, creamy tan foam. Nose is fruity raspberries, sour funk, yeast and chalky barnyard. Bone-dry and very bitter. Lots of fruit, berries and earthiness, herbal, leafy hops, and hints of wine and port. Fairly light body with a hard carbonation. Lots of flavour in this, but is a bit challenging to the palate. Mouthfeel mellows some with the yeast swirled in.

Bottle shared by my friends Erin and Chris- Thanks to the both of you! A deep chestnut liquid poured from the bottle. A dense fluffy cap of beige froth sat atop. The aroma was malty,funky fruit which was not all that unpleasant. Also in the nose, some caramel paired up with an off-putting lactic milky note. Tasted of sweet dark pit fruits alongside caramel malts, with an earthy sour funk and lactose. Sweet, drawn out sour finish. Not nearly as bad as some others have mentioned, so I suspect we got a "good" bottle.

Bottle: Poured a deep clear brown color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of stale grain with some sweet notes. Taste is a mix between some stale grain with some weird chemical like aftertaste which is just plain atrocious. Wow, just when you thought you had hit the bottom of the barrel it seems this brewer can concoct some atrocious recipe.

bouteille brune de 500ml. vendue au prix de 4,99$

d'une belle couleur brune, la bière possède une belle mousse durable, les odeurs que je n'arrive pas disserner ne m'attire pas du tout et que dire de la bouche désagréable, avec une amertume à faire peur. produit vraiment méchant, manque de rondeur, de finesse, l'étiquette encore un fois est très belle, mais c'est tout.
