Pours hazy amber. Nose lactic tartness, berries, spices, mild caramels, and a touch of waxy honey. Flavor is tart lemons, cranberries, cherries, all spice, caramels. Tart and day but the supporting malt character doesn’t leave you puckering in te finish and isn’t too thin. Pretty nice beer.

Blend #6, Bottled 10/10/12, 25.4 oz Bottle. Pours a hazy orange with a finger of fine off-white head. Decent retention with some lacing. Aroma is moderately funky, barnyard, tangy, spicy. Flavor is moderately sour up front and builds slightly, fades into herbal, vegetal, and spicy finish. Mild bitter that lingers. Moderate carbonation, less than many sours, and a light, crisp body. Slightly tart, oily, finish. Not a very traditional belgian ale, it is more herbal like a sour saison. Regardless, it is an excellent, tasty, refreshing beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted on 12/2/12 from a capped 750mL bottle given to me by a very generous member of the beer community. Pours clear copper-orange with a very thick and fluffy white head that slowly recedes to thick, but even lace. The nose is lightly tart with some spices, perhaps cardamom, and a bit of caramel malt with some candied orange peel. The flavor is quite a bit more sour than I anticipated, with plenty of citrus peel, the same spices from the nose, and the malt a little lighter than the nose. The body is light with lively carbonation and a long, sour, and lightly bitter citrus peel and spiced finish.

Hazy orange gold, thin white lacing. Mildly sour nose white notes of cherry, pumpkin, nutmeg and clove. The flavors are much of the same-delicious and complex with only a slight sour note. Love.
