Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 13, 2012
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.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 31, 2012
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

DuffMan (7028) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 30, 2012
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.

Rustyham (1732) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - AUG 30, 2012
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.

Marheb (2298) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 26, 2012
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.

jbardin (161) - New York, USA - AUG 23, 2012
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RBAG Summer Session 2012. Pours unclear mahogany with a rough off white head. Aroma is bretty and a bit barnyard. Medium thin body and tart. Nice beer but VERY highly carbonated.

pintbypint (2696) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 12, 2012
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.
