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.

Bottle at rattle n hum. Pours a dark brown. Aroma is funky, flavor is sweet and tart, with a lot of funk. I really loved this beer and think it is underrated.

RBAG summer 2012. From a brown 750ml bottle. Brown pour, very cloudy, slighly milky pour from the bottom third of the bottle. Head was tight and creamy, tan coloured. Sour nose. Taste had caramel malt in the background, decent sourness up front. Tangy in the finish, dry quenching end. Interesting dark sour.

750ml courtesy of Boutip. Huge gusher all over the table and had to pour it into 2 glasses before it eventually settled. Hazy brown with a light brown head that settles to a thin film. Malty with some light funk and sour, bit of cherry and other overipe fruit. Low carbonation (maybe it all burst out when the bottle opened up) with a moderate body, slightly tangy malt on the palate, get a mild bite on the finish along with more malt, bit of funk and tasty.
