3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (750 ml). Shared byy Adam, thanks! Cloudy orange/amber with a small white head and little lacing. Aroma is of vanilla, wood, red fruits, brett, caramel and light spiciness. Taste is also of vanilla, lots of wood, red fruits, brettanomyces, caramel and vinegar notes. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Acidic finish. A bit too heavy for my liking. Some acetone (?) too. Still pretty tasty.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
