Bottle. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma is cherry and chocolate and roast. Wow! Taste is sour cherry with a hint of chocolate. Slight acetic, quite dry. Roastiness rounds out the finish.

The beer is chestnut brown with a quarter inch of khaki head. The aroma offers saison yeast, funk, currants. Similar flavor. Dark fruits, currant, malt, funk, yeast, a touch of lactobacillus. Really tasty. Super easy drinking. Perfect carbonation level. Delicious.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled sample via and shared with oakbluff. Dark brown in colour with strong carbonation. Lots of brett influence on the nose, with elements of leather, cherry pits, and muted roast. Fairly tart in the mouth with more leather, vanilla, cherry wood and minerals. A bit of an initial slick mouthfeel, but the tartness and strong carbonation balance it out nicely. Good stuff.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is dark brown, mostly opaque, with a light tan head. Nose is sweet, sugary malt with notes yeast, a touch of roast and a fair bit of leathery brett. Taste is malt sugary, berries and red wine with a light dark roast. Very assertive brett presence, leathery brett with moderate carb, a medium body and a sweetness lingering through the finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled under less than ideal circumstances No head left, deep cola-coloured still beer. Strong lactic nose, buttermilk, wood, milkchocolate and dark (red) fruit. Sourish and bonedry flavours, wood & chocolate, tanninerich. Less fruity than the nose. Finish has again a pharmaceutical streak. Dry-out effect, astringent, medium bodied at best; very light acidburn. Seen the circumstances, excellent oud bruin. Txs to Mathieu!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from a recent trade and shared with the crew. Damn nice and smooth and light sour flavors. Finish is lots of red fruit. Gritty and dirty texture. Little bit of bittersweet roastiness to the flavor. Medium bitterness and a burst of red fruit on the finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Just another pimp tasting day with the group. This one was dark amber and appeared to be a mix of saison and sour red. Either way delicious. Wild, funky dark berries, oak, long lingering palate.
