Bottle from Skjold Burne. Huge head with very good duration. Aroma and taste are rich fruits, brett, stable, yeast and hops. Exceptional balance.

I pour the 750 ml bottle into my trusty Cigar City snifter. It comes out a murky reddish brown color. There is a nice tan head sitting on top of the brew. To be honest I started getting the smell as soon as I popped the top on it. Lots of funky farmhouse smells to it with some sour cherry scents to go with it. The first sip is a rush of funkiness. You are hit with the tart cherry taste along with your just general funk (not to be confused with General Funk of course). There is a slightly metallic taste I get in it as well but with a funk beer you are expecting off flavors. It was no big deal. It has a slightly dry finish as well that is similar to many farmhouse style brews.

25.4 oz bottle shared with friend. Pours brownish/black with a ton of head. Had to wait several minutes for the head to dissipate to continue pouring. Definite sour brett aroma. The taste is sour with slight hint of cherry with a balsamic taste. Light to medium body. Not really a saison, but very good.

Another Cigar City classic!!! Deep Balsamic and malt aroma with a rich, dark caramel color. Very complex fruit and vinegar taste, a great balance of sweet and sour. My first experience with this wonderful brew was paired with an Italian sub from my favorite deli...I was blown away. Awesome with flavorful meats and cheeses such as salami and provolone. If you like Duchesse De Bourgogne, you will love this!!

my beer #7000; from erzbierschof.ch - slightly hazy amber-brown beer under a long lasting and firm beige foam; correct lacework; very complex aroma with notes of wood, grape, vinegar and black cherries; very tart, medium to full malt backbone and very tasty; solidly sour and quite dry; long aftertaste of grape, vinegar and wood - superb

Pours Dark brown with big tan head. Nose is loads of funk, some mild roast, sour/tart fruits. Flavor is a wild blend of dark roast with cooked fruit, mild acidic notes, funk, brett, dark sour cherries, grapes and mild earthy hops. I was skeptical about a black saison, but damn this is well done.

Did a side-by-side with DRowland on tap and from the bottle, his review pretty much summed it up, from the bottle was funky and sour, extremely drinkable with a nice malty feel, up there with the Russian River sours. From the tap was without the intense sour funk and almost like vinegar. The bottle was much better. I picked up 2 bottles, and quite glad that I did.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - DEC 1, 2010
Bottle with big thanks to Tsotsi! Aroma has notes of sour fruits, green apple, funk, blue cheeses and some cobwebs. Nice nose. Dark brown that sits black in the glass with a large foamy off-white head that mostly lasted and good lace. Flavor is medium sweet and bitter with a medium/heavy sourness. Palate is medium bodied and lively. Overall a nice farmhouse that is complex and warms nicely. This is what I’d imagine a sour Pannepot would be like. Very under rated for some reason. Really enjoyed this one.

Very dark pour. Aroma is tart, hoppy, lightly chocolate, ashy, yeasty, funky, dirty. Flavor is damn nice with good tartness, roasted malt, yeast, barnyard, manure...good stuff. I like the tartness.
