A careful pour produces a clear golden amber colored elixir with a thin bubbly white head that dissipates quickly but leaves a cap on top and some lacing on the sides. Smells of citrus and phenolics, plums, spicy yeast and funk. Taste is tart and fruity with a barnyard edge. Finishes sweet with a bit of astringency and leaves a lingering tart bitterness on the tongue. Crisp carbonation, sticky mouthfeel, medium to thick body. Nice little saison, bier de garde. Tart and fruity I enjoyed this one. If only it wasn’t so pricey.

Cask. Pours hazy brown with a big rich off-white head. Aroma is cheesey hops, herbs, funk, and light citrus. Flavor is slightly tart with citrus and floral hops and a caramel malt. Not sure what the hell this is but I liked it.

paultheguru (644) - Parker, Colorado, USA - JAN 23, 2011
750 ml - 2006 A: Poured a hazy/cloudy ruby-ish amber color with a huge off-white head with amazing retention. Leads to a decent amount of lacing. S: very sour esters. Tart green apples, some sour citrus as well. T: This hasn’t mellowed much over the past year or so, and if it did it is too hard to tell. Very tart/sour which kind of destroys any flavors coming in. Mostly sour citrus. You can also taste the alcohol right behind the initial sours. M: Good mouthfeel, carbonation is a little too high. Very interesting palate, sours with a hint of sweetness. D: very interesting beer. Not quite what I expected but I look sour beers, and this one was very sour. I wouldn’t mind letting one age for a few more years. I think some time will mellow this one out.

Au fût @ RedLight RedLight, Orlando, cuvée 2006. Quelle chance d’avoir pu déguster cette merveille à la pression et avec qcq années. Bizarre que elle soit référencée comme IPA, mais elle fut néanmoins un régal pour les papilles. Couleur est orange claire avec une palette de couleur allant vers l’orange sanguin / chair de pamplemousse. Mousse est épaisse et blanche. Arôme est aigre, note de vinaigre, fruité avec pas mal d’aromate sans pour cela trop noter le houblon. Palais garde cet aspect de vinaigre (moyen), pamplemousse, sec en bouche avec un fini mi-tropical qui est complémenter par cette aigreur. Possibilité d’y noter des traces de bois, peut être âgée en tonneaux de chêne? A déguster.

redlight (2316) - Orlando, Florida, USA - DEC 10, 2010
Draft @ redlight redlight. Brett on the nose with citrus and very floral. Pours amber with a solid white head. Tart and citrusy with floral notes, with a citrus blossom flavor, very interesting. Very complex with a lot going on.

Suttree (5130) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 6, 2010
Really? this is 6 years old? I had it on draft at the Thirsty Monk in Asheville in December 2010. Also - An IPA? Really? It was a really nice beer, don’t get me wrong, but I got a lot of fruity, slightly sour notes in the aroma and flavor, and not much hoppy flavors. Oh well, I liked it whatever it was.

radagast83 (4563) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - OCT 2, 2010
Oh wow, really this old? Well, picked up a bottle - unaware of what it was. Poured a copper color, slightly cloudy, thick head. Yeast, spices, etc. Flavor was alright - though a bit spicy for my likes.
