3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A decent wild but not on the level im used to from allagash. Very sweet and malty with some light cocoa, grass, muddled cherries, wet wood, and tobacco. Not nearly tart or funky enough for me. Could probably use some time.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Funky, fruity, cherry and berry-like aromas, some toast. Dark brown with red highlights and a lasting fluffy khaki head. Dry, funky, somewhat sour, roasty maltiness and savory in the finish. Light bodied, fluffy, and smooth, with an earthy funky finish.

Tart meaty berry aromas with some funk. Lasting beige head and thick carbonated dark brown almost black body. Light berry and bitter tartness and some light earthy spice. Crisp carbonated and some tartness on the palate

Bottle thanks to John. Pours a cloudy brown with beige head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is brett, yeast, oak, and funk. Medium mouthfeel with light cherry skin, oak, strong brett, and nice lingering dry finish. Very nice.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled Oct 16 2013. Pour has a brown color with a fizzy tan head that fell right off. Aroma has roasted dark malt, brett, sour dark fruit, and slight oak. Mouth feel is light and the carbonation a little low. Flavor has a roasted malt core, soured dark fruit more than acidity, brett, sour cherry, and a hint of bitter chocolate. This is fairly mild all around with more roast and brett than anything else.

Bottle shared by jayhawk73. Thanks Jeff!
The beer is dark brown with an everlasting beige head that leaves copious lacing behind. The aroma brings smoke, malt, molasses, leather, dark fruit, funk, oak. Well balanced and flavorful. Dark saison character. Complex and intriguing. A fun beer. This was really solid. I’d definitely have this again.

Draft at the growler NYC. Pours a deep black color with no head. Taste and smells of cherry and sweet syrup. Slightly tart. Pretty good

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
hazy sepia, thin cream ring, decent lacing. Cocoa and manure nose is lightly estery with apple skin, moderate plum and sugars. Lightly metallic, heavy carbonation front palate, rubbery brett mid with light sulfur and chocolate, overbearing fizz in the muddled, sticky finish. All of it balanced but none of it stellar.
