4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 23, 2014 Bottle: Bottled 10/2011. Somewhat hazy orange copper, quickly disappearing off white head, decent lacing. Aroma is pretty funky; wet hay, horsey barnyard, corky but not too strong. Good apple skins and cherry balance. Taste is more tart than the aroma leads on; earthy and dirty white grapes, apples, and light lemon zest. Still a solid funk character; dry oak, musty wood, hay, and plenty of barnyard. Crisp, clean mouth feel and a dry finish. Drinks easy as hell, great farmhouse from JP.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2014 Vintage 75cl kindly shared by impuritylaw, merci! - Bref: wisely dosed spices join a host of gently stone fruit sours to make a gentle US crossover Belgian "sour" ale of convincing seasonal charm. - Cinnamon, oak and vanilla well dosed and balanced against apricot and lemon tartness in aroma. Aromas withdraw in flavour to make way for thinned out fruit caramels and a slight vinegar prickle (cf. De Leite’s instant sour Belgian ales). - A few notches behind Bam Noire due to overload, but still an original watercolour blending Belgian ale, US saison and US wild/sour.

Pours a light brown with a foamy white head. Aroma is a spice that stands out with a sharp bite and lactic acid. Flavor is tart lactic acid and that same spice. The tartness has a bit of a bite to it, or maybe that’s the spices used. Pretty good.

Kindly shared by impuritylaw@his beery bachelor farewell, thanks a lot. nose: Patex morphing tenderly into rum raisins with quite a cinnamon presence; hints of lavender and sage. Taste brings a huge, ghostly cherry presence, cinnamon again, dry sherry notes with a tart, close to vinegary background. One extra point for the brewer’s poetic tasting notes: "Gentle amber malts lead smooth caramel notes, gently lapping against a shore of distant forgotten spice."
