Tap at Churchill’s. Will update later. Like reg double DBA, drier with less sweet bourbon. Not funky, just a touch more fruity. Alcohol present, not overpowering. Dunno which I prefer--maybe the reg version.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had on draft unfiltered at the brewery. Dry, tannic, fruity yeast aroma, bready, slight tartness/wheat beer like, better than the bottle.
Earlier Rating: 12/7/2013 Total Score: 3.9
Had on draft at Barrelworks. Raisin, toffee, minimal wild charater, slightly vinous, chocolaty. Tasty beer.

Draft at last drop. God bless Seattle beer week. Aroma is sour tart, caramel, fruit. Murky light amber, khaki head, some retention, no lacing. Taste: lightly tart - nice caramel, fig fruity sweetness with appropriate bitterness at the end. Slick texture, nearly syrupy, full body, light carbonation. Overall: love getting to try any and all barrel aged fsw offerings. This is nice, not quite as intense as some of the offerings.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Reginald Brett - Strong Wild Ale @Bottleworks. Pours a hazy copper with a big white head. Aroma is slightly lactic sour with not a lot more going on. Taste is malty with a very slight sour tone around the 2/3 point of the taste. Cinnamon, vanilla and some odd fruit go on too. The fruit comes out more as the beer warms. Not really enough sour to call it one but it is just a brett beer so the lack of bugs means the sour notes are spot on.

On tap at Black Squirrel. Cherry in the nose and faint earth. Flavor is cherry, light woodiness, and moderate lactic acidity. A bit of funk in the background.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at World of Beer - Tempe. Hazy dark orange color with zero head. Aroma of SweeTarts, slight tangelo, and a tiny bit of tanginess for balance. Slightly sweet tropical fruit flavor that’s somewhat tart without being sour. The bourbon character from the Double DBA becomes much more apparent as the beer warms. Dry, almost gritty finish with a pleasant sweet aftertaste.

Yum. Funky nose - fruity. Soft white head, hazy amber color. Nice saison with lots of different flavors hopping around. A little sweet and gentle oak in the aftertaste. Quite good!
