Thanks a lot to brystmar for the sample! Pours a lightly hazy darker amber with little in the way of head. Smell is tannins, murky touch dirty wood with some spoiled berries, lactic, bugs, lactic, touch vinegar. Tastes of spoiled berries, murky, lemon, citrus powder, cough drops, murky malts, tannins, old barrels, rain water, vinous, murky vinegar and faint polish. Murky, touch lower carbonation body. I quite liked these guys “Saison du Fermier” but this one is a lesser effort for me, not clean enough & the vinegar etc. make me feel like a lot of this was not as intended or at least not as it should be. I know that Americans are into this kind of stuff but this isn’t really what a sour should be even if it drinks okay.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle… RBSG 2014… This beer doesn’t cheat death. It wins fair and square!… Pours cloudy and amber with a mid-sized, creamy, white head that doesn’t give up. It’s in it for the long haul. The aroma furnishes lots of funk and loads of wood along with some herbal notes. Full-bodied with a skim-milk mouthfeel and airy carbonation. The flavor is a collection of sour, funky, woody, fruity and vinous notes – pear, pluot, apricot and white wine. Tons of wet wood in the tart, tangy, funky finish. World class beer from a world class brewery in a world class city!
