2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Brewfest. Caramel hazy with white ring and lace. Pungent stanky cheese with caramel Sugar Daddy . Fruity tart but overripe with mouthcoating sour milk and white wine. Medium body sort of flat internal carbonation. I don’t get it. I think I am not as into sours as I thought I was. I definitely prefer a brett beer with just a little funky farmhouse and a really dry hoppy finish. This just doesn’t taste good to me.

Fra flaske pĺ Mandag i annen, Cardinal mars-15: lett uklar gylden med kort bruseskum, og den mĺ "drikkes mens deet bruser" som det het om Nyco. Og like sur. Kommer seg etter det innledende sjokket. Garantert ĺ fjerne eventuell plaque. Heftig.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle to glass. Pours a hazy amber color with a frothy off white head. Aroma is belgian yeast, light tartness, barnyard funk. Flavor has a subtle sour grape tartness/sweetness with some funk and spice. Light and easy to to drink. Decent saison, but Crooked Stave has much better offerings.

Bottle, thanks Ben. Aroma: tropical fruits, barnyard, lemon, apples. App: hazy golden brownish, small white head. Taste and palate: medium body, aqueous, vineous, high carbonation, dry light acidity finish. Overall: I really got the meaning of the description of this beer after the first sip. Definitely a tart and vineous mouthfeel. Really pleasant. A complex beer that I really hope I can get my hands on again.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 10, 2015 Couleur dorée avec un col assez stable. Aromes assez complexes de fruits comme la peche et les agrumes, d?épices, de céréales, une bonne acidité du au Brett. Une petite ressemblance avec du vin blanc. Une excellente saison sure, une des meilleure!
