Bottle @ Craft Beer Co. Pours a hazy copper, with a thick off white head. Slightly sour, light roast, toffee, sweet, hoppy.

radiomgb (2386) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 22, 2014
Murky brown in colour with a large and long lasting beige head, good lacing. The aroma is sweet with brown sugar, light alcohol and some funk. The flavour is quite malty, funky with some chocolate. Weird really. Sweet and funky mouthfeel, medium body, high carbonation. Finishes long, some brett. Not really sure about this one, quite strange.

750ml bottle opened in March 2010.

750 ml bottle sampled during a tasting in March 2012. Pours a hazy amber brown color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma and flavor have sour grapes, caramel, some bready malts, lemon citrus, acetic acidity, balsamic vinegar, some funk and Belgian yeast. Medium-bodied. This one was a bit strange yet interesting at the same time.

750 ml bottle
Other than being a massive gusher this was an excellent saison that was worth trading for. A sour farmhouse ale with attitude is just as good as many other Cigar City releases. I’d love to try another bottle fresh instead of waiting for it to age.

Aroma / Appearance - After the creamy foam settled the glass was full of a rich caramel liquid. Strong yeast, sour mash, cherry red vines, and traces of dark chocolate tickle the air. It almost smells like a Flemish red.

Flavor / Palate - An immediate tartness perks up the palate. Sharp and vinegary, it is memorable after just a few sips. Chocolate and yeast march into a pleasant finish. The sourness might be a little too strong. Overall though this is an excellent release that was good to try once.

Poured from bottle. Beautiful pour with two fingers of caramel head. Lovely horse blanket and sweet aroma. Great sour combines with caramel finish on the first taste. Lovely small bubbles to finish the swallow. A very complex beer that requires many swallows to appreciate.

Karl bjuder på bishop Falun. Dyr vill jag minnas men inte säker. Kola och ättika i doft. Väldigt fluffig i kroppen men spretar mot slutet. Ganska lik en Rodenbach. Kul att gamla gänget är samlat. Trevlig kväll

Bottled@CBC2013 Dark brown color, small beige head. Tart bretta nose, quite intensive. Medium-bodied, active carbonation. Fruity, lots of bretta, some cellary notes. Lingering sweet sticky flavors in the finish.

Don’t Age.

[5643-20130816] Bottle. Sour yeast aroma. Hazy, dark brown body with a long-lasting foamy off-white head. Sour yeasty grains flavour has a light hot kick in the finish. Medium body. Interesting, seems super funked out. (6/3/7/3/13) 3.2

BelgianBeerGal (3241) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Traded bottle of unknown vintage. Big gusher on opening. Clear, dark, brown color with a huge tan head that lasts forever and makes pouring a hassle. Mild, tart, sour aroma with a hint of acetone and maybe grape juice. Flavor is a little tart but then it ends with some harshness. Okay
