3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to BeerBaby for this one!
Pours clear very dark brown with garnet highlights.
Very foamy tall, long-lasting off-white head.
Tart, sour aroma. Balsamic vinaigrette and spoiled apples.
The flavor is sour and acetic. I don’t care for the way the sourness finishes on the tongue. This needs a bit more malt sweetness to balance it out for my tastes.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - RBAG - Thanks for the share Tony! Thanks for hosting as well! Pours deep murky tawny/brown, thick and persistent tan head, decent lacing. Nose is tart with winter fruit, brandy, cheese raisin. Flavours of tart raisin, funk, quite tart and very vinous, but just didn’t gel for me. A decent sour, but I wouldn’t go too far out of my way to snag a bottle for myself.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 75cl. A huge, light beige head forms over an unclear, dark amber body. Rather berry-sour aroma, with some roasted malts, a touch of caramel and some vinegar hints. Dry, effervescent and sourish on the palate. Really, really soft. Some caramel, but mostly sourish berries in the flavour. Vinegar hints too. Lasting finish. Tasteful, easy drinkable, but not overly complex. 120831

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, shared at RBAG 2012 Summer Session. Lightly cloudy chestnut brown body with a fizzy off-white lively head. Aroma is musty barnyard, dark fruits, and lactic sourness. Palate is softly sour, balancing flavours of dark fruits with under-ripe berries. Nice lactic acidity, but a little gassy.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This was a major gusher, the head shot out of the bottle at least six inches. After pouring a very heady glass, the sour balsamic aroma was very noticable. Color is a deep burgundy with an off white head holding strong. Flavor is spur and dry malt, balsamic, and fresh purple onions. Sweet at first but with a dry aftertaste. I wish that it had not been infected because I was looking forward to a smooth Saison flavor.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Une bière très vivante, effervescente avec plusieurs débris de levures. Une fois la vague passée, on a un liquide très dense et savoureux. Des notes sauvages, surettes et acides cohabitent habilement, la complexité ne cesse d’augmenter en la buvant et des notes vinaigrées viennent doucement s’ajouter au paysage. Le corps est vineux mais avec une rondeur hors du commun. Très belle dégustation en bonne compagnie.
