2.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle into a snifter. Muddy milk chocolate-brown. Bubbles come and go within seconds, leaving a still-looking liquid below. Smells almost sour. Lots of vinegar, green oak, green apple, white grapes, caramel, cherry. The flavor, however, is kind of light, not much to it. A green apple tartness. Splash of sour cherry. Very highly carbonated -- itís almost hard to pick up the flavor with all these bubbles keeping the beer off my tongue. Light body, no noticeable alcohol. Meh. Too highly carbonated, weak flavor.

Pours golden with small tan head out of bottle. Aroma of sour cherries and sour yeast. Flavor of Chardonnay with finish of sour cherries. Good beer overall but I was wishing it would be more sour.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Clear red amber, large beige head that dissipates fairly quickly leaving some lacing. Aroma is vinous, red wine, oak, cherries, supplication, perhaps a touch of funk. Really nice. Flavor is not quite up to aroma, but still very nice, Oaky vinous, tart cherry notes. Light initial sweetness dries out quickly, leaving light tartness. Minimal funk. Lightish body. High carbonation is a distraction. Let this one sit a bit. Ahh, gains a bit of funk from the dregs, as well as a cloudiness. Better rounded flavors that way. Brian would be proud of me.

Bright reddish-amber with a big beige head. Sour, fruity, bourbon barrel aroma. Tart, woody, fruity flavor, surprisingly weak. Medium bodied and dry with a lot of carbonation.

Missed the original release so glad to get a taste now. Pours deep garnet red with little head. Taste leans tart but not mouth puckering.

This isnít an old ale, in my opnion this is a Sour/Wild/Saison. Shared with Jrob21. Pours muddy pear with dissipating fizzy head. Scent is wine, berries, and booze. Flavor is sweet and earthy with biting finish. Fizzy light body that suits this beer well. Loved it. Hope Saint Arnoldís brings it back. Bottle - Received in Trade

12 oz shared by ericteusink. Dry Chardonnay definitely there. Very effervescent. Cool red collor with lots of white head. Finish is a bit tangy and sour some light fruit. Tangerine. Not getting any old ale bit call it what you will.

12 ounce bottle from Secret Santa. Thanks! Pours a hazy dark amber color with a thin frothy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of tart cherries and stone fruits, caramel, wine and a bit of funk. The taste is toasted malt, caramel, tart cherries, mild funk and a bit of pineapple. Medium bodied, slight booze, low carbonation. Solid.
