Sampled from the tap at the Cajun Cafe Fall Fest. Pours a deep brown that is slightly hazy and a brown head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has notes of grass and floral with a dark grain backbone and Belgian yeast. Flavor starts with dark grains and a hint of chocolate but they mellow to let out a bit of grass and light flora. A bit odd but worked.

750 mL bottle. Poured medium-deep brown with a smoked beige head. The aroma picked up an odd blend of smoked black malts, cloves, and floral notes.. some okay notes toward the back.. didnít really do it for me. The flavor found toasty black malts and lesser rye bread at the core, with cloves, floral notes, and detergent around.. dry and spicy, but it didnít really work. Medium-bodied and scratchy on the palate.. lots of residual graininess at the end.. interesting, but I wasnít a fan.

750ml bottle from Proof. Dark brown pour with a thin off-white head. Aroma is brett, vinegar and belgian yeast. Tastes are rubbing alcohol, vinegar, cherry, coffee. Light tartness. Strange brew. May come together better with age.

rbrazell (1594) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - OCT 21, 2012
750ml bottle from Proof. Muddy deep brown pour with a light creamy tan head. Nose is roasted malts, chocolate, some yeast funk and bits of acetone. As it warms the acetone becomes more noticeable and sour notes as well. Tart, dark berries, acetone, balsamic vinegar, acidic coffee and roasted notes through the flavor. Medium dry bodied and a short finish. Interesting beer.

jbruner (2181) - Athens, Georgia, USA - OCT 20, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2013 Pours a translucent brownish-red from the bottle with a d tan head and moderate lacing. Aroma of coffee, belgian yeast, and odd kind of nail polish remover finish. Taste follows, weird kind of rubber aftertaste. Almost too weird. Never seen a black saison, not sure I?m going back.

Dark red tawny color. Aroma of acetone nail polish remover. Canít get much past that smell. Light roastiness and funk. Still taste the acetone. Maybe some cherry notes. Maybe this beer needs time to settle.

New addition so glad I got my hands on this one! Not a huge fan of the sour style but you can tell the work that went into this one. The others are right, what stands out is the Funk! Itís brown and cloudy, smells sour and taste tart and ???. Itís not a style for the novice, you really have to dig and appreciate the effort or you might think it was garbage water! So if you want to really test your palate...sip it slow.

Second to rate! 10/10/12. 750mL bottle. Knowing these beers, I put the beer in the freezer for a few minutes to cool even further and then popped the cork outside. I can thankfully say that the cork popped off safely and effectively with no gush or anything at all! I immediately sniffed the cork and open bottle and was blessed with a nice, pleasant sourness, some funk, and obvious wood and hints of vinegar - promising! After opening, I let the bottle sit for a bit to warm up a bit before pouring into a tulip glass. A moderately cautious pour reveals a deep, dark brown pour with a 2-finger tan head that cuts in half but lasts and laces plenty. The aroma shows a lot, as expected. Thereís a deep, roasted, nutty character, with a touch of funk and woodiness, but there is a definite aroma that at first reminded me of rubbing alcohol or medicine or something. After a discussion with the wife, it was obvious - acetone. Straight up nail polish remover, and strong, Iím sad to admit. The flavor is much better, with more of that roasty nuttiness, funk, wild yeast, and a small but lingering tart presence in the background. Iím thinking that if I hold on to a bottle, this will only get better with time. Cheers!

On firkin at Hoptomic 2011. Pours a murky swamp water brown with a teeny off-white head. One look at the glass, and people knew- Saint Somewhere. Nose is some malt, bits of brett, some oak, and some vinegar, and vinous tartness. Flavor is similar with lingering funk and vinegar. Light in body and like George Clinton- funky as funky can be.
