4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours light back. Aroma is light roast and a hint of lacto. Palate is complex, lacto sourness and Brett complexity mixed in roasty malt. Hard to nail down, just go try it. Phenomenal

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma of Saison yeast is accompanied with notes of toasted malt and Brett. A dark pour that when held to the light has a beautiful ruby glow and supports a voluminous ivory head and stringy lacing. On the palate, dark fruit and wood with hints of malt and Brett end in a dry bitter finish. Medium-light body with crisp, almost biting carbonation. Overall, an enjoyable twiste on a Saison.

Very dark red pour from tap with a ton of off white head. Not much aroma but what is there is fruity. Very light mildly carbonated mouth feel. Beer is a little sour and very light tasting. Kind of watery. Its okay.

This is better than the regular Bam. Poured with a frothy cream-colored long-lived head with a bit of lace and a clear dark amber color. Aroma is quite mild yeast malt tart. Flavor is like aroma with a bit of roast thrown in. Body is decent. Nice beer.

Bottled. Nose of chocolate and spice cookies. Cloudy brown-orange color with a huge airy head. Dry, bready flavor, chocolate, caramel, spices, grass. dry, light, interesting, yet not completely convincing. No where near as good as the blonde version.
