Poured out a murky orange brown, conditioned on yeast, with a thick just off white head, lots of sticky lacing. The nose has lots of yeast and alcohol, some white wine must, a little banana, champagne, and wet concrete. The taste had a backbone of yeast and alcohol, with banana, and champagne rounding things out. Has a light body with good carbonation. Not enough malt of additional flavor to balance out the alcohol. Otherwise a fine beer, and enjoyable.

Pours medium redish brown, little carbonation, off white head after vigorous pour, some lacing.

Slight sour smell, a little malts, maybe some rye? Fruity esters from yeast. Funky fruity taste, kinda like a sweet fruit lambric. Alcohol is not apparent, very well cloaked.

I'd give this one a couple years cellar time. I'd bet it would be nuts.

Review from BeerAdvocate magazine Vol. II Issue XI:

Chestnut-hued brew with a fine clarity, as long as the sediment stays in the bottle. Thin, bubbly tan lacing sticks around for a while. Musty mineral water and sour fruit of cherries and plums seems to dominate the nose. Semi-prickly crispness within a very well attenuated and dry body. Tart and tangy with a mineral salt flavor in the back. Tart fruitiness has similarities to lemons, cherries and plums. Ghost-like wood character throughout. Extremely dry malt flavor that resembles carob powder and chicory. There are herbal medicinal phenols and yeast in the bone-dry finish. No real sign of the alcohol other than a small warming feeling in the back of the throat--very deceiving.

No worries on a shortage of complexities here, though the extreme dryness and no-show alcohol leave a void and some confusion on the taste buds. Worth a try? Sure, why not.

bouteille brune de 660ml.

belle couleur brune avec des reflets rouges, pas de mousse, nez alcooleux, fruité, probablement des cerises, goût de cerises, de pommes vertes, elles est légère en bouche, mince, vraiment rien d'agréable, pourquoi embouteiller de tel produit ?

Versé dans un verre de Unibroue (Maudite).

L'étiquette de La Pentecote est définitivement TRÈS bas de gamme. Difficile à s'attendre à une bière de qualité quand l'étiquette semble avoir été imprimée à la maison sur une vielle imprimante puis collée à la main...

Peu de mousse, faible carbonatation. Belle couleur brune-rouge.

Odeur prononcée d'alcool et de fruits. Faible odeur de vin (blanc?).

Goût franchement faible, mince, avec arrière-goût vineux désagréable. Au moins, l'erreur de la Diablesse (de multi-brasses aussi) n'est pas répétée, on ne dirait pas un sirop.

La bouteille de 660 ml est définitivement dure à terminer.
