3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sourness, dark fruit, figs, and a hint of citrus on the nose. Pours a cloudy apple cider amber with a mostly lasting off-white head and moderate laciing. The taste is a bit of sour funk, some bread, with green apple and sour cherry notes. The finish is earthy and dry. Light bodied, crisp with high carbonation…as soon as I released the wire cage, the cork tried to rocket it’s way through my ceiling! Overall, complex and enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle, from Dutch’s. Shared with friends over a game of Catan. Totally hazy red orange color. Thin khaki head. Some loose dots and ropes of lace, nothing sticks. Medium to bigger body. Soft, kind of sharper carbonation. Gets smooth after a chance to mellow out, though. Finishes dry. Bigger bitter taste, lightly spicy. Nice dark fruit, belgian yeast, light spice aromas. Kind of peppery. Maybe a very light bit of tartness to it gets more noticeable as I go, not really "sour" though at this point. Solid, interesting saison.

Bottle. Pours dark orange-reddish color with a large head that disappears quickly. Smells of some fruit, berries. alcohol. Taste is tart, with a lot of fruit and alcohol finish. Not bad but the tartness takes over in a not-so-good ways.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ Exira Beer Summit IV. Thanks to Dr. Owl for sending. Pours a murky reddish orange appearance with a cream colored head. Candy sugar, orange candy, spicy funky yeasty, slightly spicy cinnamon aroma. Tangy tart grape/vinous, black cherry, caramel, funky yeasty flavor. High carbonation. Doesn’t blow my mind and kind of a creative idea but not my favorite. Shows a bit of age.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle hazy chestnut brown big 3 finger head. Nose is tart, cherry notes, musty, lacto, soil, earthy. Mouthfeel is on the thin side and extremely carbonated, a bit too much. Taste is musty, earthy berry, spices, nutty, dark fruit notes. Finish is tart, grains, fruity, spice, bready. Some decent flavors trapped in there but overall pretty messy. Just OK. (From 10/30 notes)
