On tap at The Shark Club. Thanks for pointing this one out...I completely overlooked it! Poured a hazy golden color with a small sized head. Fruity, cherries present but not overpowering, spices, and a trace of yeastiness. alcohol content very well hidden and way too easy to drink. Was told this was a one off by Dark Horse, if it is not, I would seek it out again!

growler thanks to Jale... pours a muddy dark pink, good carbonation... nose of light cherries with yeast... the taste gets rid of the yeast that dominates the sapient trip ale, nice cherry, easy to drink

Silphium (3179) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - OCT 8, 2011
On tap at Crunchy’s, East Lansing. Medium hazy orange-brown body, medium tight cream head. Light nose with spice and flower petals. Body surprisingly light and wispy, herbal and spicy with cherry pit and tannic flower petals in addition to residual sugars. Not quite what I expected.

Quite a solid beer by Dark Horse. The cherry to me is very natural; could be juice and/or real, but one thing it is not is medicinal. The beer needs to warm up to get the spicy belgian yeast phenols of the base triple, and this one has some earthiness (slight mushroom) - I like the aroma, with the tart cherry wafting in. The flavor is tart, sour and sweet. As the beer warms you notice the fruit less and the triple sweetness with pepper combination more. Had a large glass at Dark Horse and shared a growler among four people NYE. I like the fruit beers at DH (since 2001).

On tap at Pig Minds as a guest beer, pours a clear dark orange golden with a thin head and some sticky lacing, the aroma has a good amount of fruit and candy sugar, the flavor is smooth with a lot of cherry in the finish, nice mouthfeel, not bad.
