On tap at CCB pouring up copper with a little bit of haze and thin white head. It has sort of a winter spicy fruity aroma with apples, peaches, watermelon and strawberries mixing with various farmhouse yeasty spice notes. Lots of sweet fruitiness in the nose here. The taste is fruity and mildly tart with sort of apricot, peach fruit tart candy. It offers up a refreshingly dry finish with lingering fuzzy peach skin, mild tartness and a tannin like sensation lingering off into the after taste.

Entering old rates. Draft @ CCB Orangé avec un léger voile trouble, col beige. Arôme présente ce bouquet typique de la levure de Guava Grove procurant une certaine aigreur, le tout est accompagné par un fruité tropical et une douceur de fruit de la passion. Palais est fruité sur une note aigre persistante et ce profile fruité qui persiste, fruit de la passion reste en retrait mais toujours perceptible. Le tout et surtout cette levure contribue à une série intéressante de CCB de par les différents traitements et la variété de ces derniers qui intègrent bien les différents fruits tropicaux. .

On tap at the Blind Tiger during their Cigar City event. Pours a lot like the spicy plum, looks like papaya juice, no head. Sweet passion fruit on the nose. Jammy, sweet fruit and berries. Vanilla and lots of fruit. More sticky jam flavors, quite delicious. There’s a lot of acetic acid throughout, featuring prominently on the finish in particular.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 26, 2010
Tap at BT. Pours a hazed peachy orange passion juice look- pink tinge- no head. Aroma is fruity with hints of solvent, acetobacter vinegar, prickly, pickles, earth and tropical fruits- some funk and wood. Flavor is juicy, prickly zesty spices, fruit juices, tropical notes, hibiscus tea, tomatoe, eggplant- nightshade herbal vege bitterness, some currant as well- more spritzy acetobacter and vinegar. too sour and aceto for me, and the fruit is strange and vegetal.

TURDFERGUSON (3969) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 22, 2010
Draught@ CC. Nose is super fruity, fruit punch, red tea, etc. Yeast presence seems low. Very interesting beer, but not much to relate it to any saison I have ever had. I enjoyed it, but more as a slightly sweet fruit beer.

The aroma is a spicy brown mustard, vinegar, fruit. The appearance is hazy orange. The flavor is a little sweeter, fruit, vinegar, slight dishwater. The finish is spicy and vineagr. The body is on the thin side of medium. Good, interesting.

yobdoog (1888) - Woodridge NY, New York, USA - MAR 15, 2012
Hazy pour. Aroma is sweet, some light vinegar, spice and salad. Odd flavor, not as much of the passion fruit as I expected. Sweet, caramel, grain, spice, yeast and grainy dirty notes. Finished a bit prickly on the tongue.
