Notes / Commercial Description:
De la série alphabétique, voici une des octuplées de la nouvelle portée. Une semence unique pour chacune d’elle ainsi qu’une longue période de gestation auront permis de leur forger une personnalité qui leur est propre. À vous de découvrir combien ça goûte!

Ce brassin vous attend patiemment depuis près de deux ans dans huit fûts d'un château du Haut-Médoc. Depuis ce temps, chacun de ces fûts subit les assauts d'un ferment étrange différent.

Thanks to Papat444 for this one! Looks quite interesting. Aged in Haut-Medoc barrels. There appear to be 8 versions of this beer, brewed with different yeasts. This one is with Brett Lambicus.

Beer is dark brown, a bit reddish. Small beige head fades fairly quickly, but not entirely.

Smell contains red grape, plum, cherry and oak. There is also a musty, funky scent mixed with the oak, that is unfortunately slightly unpleasant. Other than that, it is a nice smell, and the funkiness seems to fade a bit for me.

Taste contains oak, red grape, plum, and a dry funkiness. The Brett plays a strong role, but not all for the better. The dryness is a bit simple- it makes me think of hoppy beers that end up tasting bitter without being flavourful.

Full bodied, very low carbonation level. Astringent and a bit slick.

Overall, not bad, but disappointing. The barrel treatment is nice, but I don't think the Brett has been used well in this one.
