I had this at Global Brew. Pours a orangish-red with a white head. Taste citrus with a hint of cherry. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber from sethdude! Pours hazy orange amber with a creamy white head. Aroma is sort of tart cherry. With touch of citrus? Med body or better. Flavor is earthy, tart, some sort of fruit thatís probably pitted. Maybe itís fruit esters. Itís cherry if I imagine it. It finishes quite dry, decently earthy, tart/sour in a mild way, and there are touches of brett. Pretty tasty, tho challenging to parse the flavors.

Great saison with a back splash of sour cherries. The cherries are not on front display, but rather a great accent to an incredible farmhouse ale. I am not usually a cherry fan, if not done right it seems to taste medicinal. Not the case here.

Pour is a clear orange/red with a small white head. Aroma is tart with some fruity esters and a bit of sweetness. Flavor is tart cherry with some fruity yeasty esters. Finish has more of the cherry with a bit of sourness. This was a good tart but not overly sour saison.

Bottle from Wine and cheese place. Nice cherry aroma mixed with a bit of yeast and yeasty spice. The flavor is mostly cherry, but itís a dry, fermented cherry flavor. Not exactly tart cherry - just not very sweet cherry. Then the saison flavors come into play. Yeasty spice, pepper, lemon rind. I wasnít sure about this one but did enjoy it thoroughly.

Sampled at GonzoIlliniís Birthday Party (Western Springs, IL). Happy Birthday, Tony! Pours a richer glowing yellow orange hue, mellow haze, frothy whitish head atop that laces mellow. Aromas are dry funk and yeasty gentle spice. Some gentle lemon, pear, and crab apple. Touch of cobwebs, some touches of orange, yogurt and tart cherries. Initial offers gentle dryness, touch of tart fruit, lemons and straw. Gentle sweetness, apple, pear, touches of citrus. Some gentle spritzy carbonation, funky dryness, fruit elements, dry gentle spice. Middle shows gentle fruit, dry mellow sweetness, soft grains, and a kiss of cherry. Lingering gentle yeast, hops, spice into the back. Mellow yet inviting flavors. Solid. Different than expected
