3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Tres Bonne Cuisine. Pours a deep brown color with a smallish tan head. Nose is sweet with dark fruits and sort of vinous. Taste is a good balance of sweet and sour, there is something that I’d associate with apple cider vinegar. A little sugary at times.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Mollie Stone’s in San Mateo, CA. It’s important to know that this beer is a 13% mix of Dark Saison and 87% soured ale. Nose is malt, honey, soured cherries, dark fruits, yeast esters. Tastes of fermented cherries and honey... a strange concoction but it works! Not sure why... but this beer is severely underrated by the RB community (BeerAdvocate has this beer up in the 80s). I gave it extra points for being underrated and unique (probably closer to a 3.9/4 if that actually means anything)...plus it was $2.99. You bastards!

On draft at Sharp Edge Brasserie. Poured murky mahogany with creamy khaki head. Flavor of sweet caramel, tart cherry, oak. Rather silky. Not all that bad.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty average sour that had hints of cherries and raspberries. Taste was sweet with not too much alcohol. Closer to a lambic and not soo sour.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours ruby-tinged mahogany into a snifter. Off white head recedes to skim surface. Sour, earthy cherry pit aromas. Soft with sweet cherry and bitter pith upfront turning to dry cherry skin in the lasting finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Originally rated on 11/14/14. Aroma is similar to apple cider with a dash of vinegar. The body is a super deep brown with reddish highlights, the head is thin and leaves spotty lace. Flavor is sourness upfront with some old bread in the backside. Average mouthfeel and carbonation. Overall its ok at best..

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Awesome looking beer. Clear amber with a great head of foam and lacing.
A fruity tartness mixed with a typical Saison nose here.
Tastes just like it smells. Lightish fruity tartness complimenting a classic like flavour of a well brewed Saison. Easy to drink cuz it tastes good and the abv is easy to handle. I like.
