On tap at st Arnold's. Pours a hazy golden/amber hue with average sized off-white head. Aroma is vinous, plum, cherries, lemon, acidic, oak. Taste of booze, lemon/grapefruit, tart, plum, oak, vanilla, and light pepper. Very tasty and unique. Almost a mild sour, but some sweetness to it that I can't put a label on.

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.

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 isn’t 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 Arnold’s brings it back. Bottle - Received in Trade

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.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2014 GABF 2013. Great wine aromas, cherry, and funk. Very smooth, with a short finish that almost comes off as as sweet. Brett version.
