COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We brewed this Saison-style ale with our friends at the newly opened brewery, Bottle Logic, located just down the street from our sour barrel warehouse. Being just as interested in style bending beers as we are, this not-so-logical beer was born. The base beer is a Belgian-style farmhouse saison, fermented with Brettanomyces, but that’s just where the fun begins. Our teams selected an unusual set of herbs to brew the beer with and then added as much raspberry and mango puree as we could fit into our fermenters. The result is a tropical Saison that is perfectly refreshing during this unusually warm California winter.

Fritz123 (1123) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - NOV 21, 2014
Bottle shared by Dan at his house. Small snifters. Pours a somewhat hazy orange-red-light brown with a very prominent head. HEad only lasted about 60 seconds though. Some lacing. Aroma is raspberry, peach, mango, slight funk, brett, and very hint of cheese. The taste was raspberry, mango, peach, lemon and orange zest, funky basement, and brett. The taste was actually less powerful than I thought it was going to be on the description. I wish the fruit was more defined and bold. VERY carbonated, almost overally done. Light body, easy to drink. While flavorful, I think the downside was it was almost a little watery.

Type: 750ml bottle (25.4 oz.) Glass: High ball glass From: Beer Advocate’s heresy22 Price: N/A Purchased: N/A Consumed: Oct. 25, 2014 Misc.: Collaboration with Bottle Logic Brewing; Had about 3/4 of the bottle left when I got it Thanks Chris! Poured a honey, caramel, hazy color with 1-to-2 fingers of frothy white head. The occasional stream of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Minimal foggy lacing on the sides of the glass. Minimal to no retention on the top. (Sight - 3.63) Smelled juniper berry, blueberry, raspberry, mango, plum, purple grape, Blue Raspberry Blow Pop and floral notes. (Smell - 4.00) Taste wasn’t nearly as good as the nose and much boozier. Got brett notes, raspberry, blueberry, juniper berry, Blue Raspberry Blow Pop, purple grape, mango and plum. (Taste - 3.38) Light body. Oily texture. Lively carbonation. Longer, boozy finish. (Feel - 3.50) Not a big fan of this beer and I don’t know why. It could have been the brett, which I really am only guessing on what I think it is. Either way, I probably won’t have it again. (Overall - 3.50) 3.55 81 B

tried at recent bottle share. aroma is crazy good with mango, flavor is an odd mix of saison, sour, fruit and old ale. neat blend of flavors here.

AirForceHops (3531) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 22, 2014
750 ml bottle from the RS. Split with phatdog1 and friends. Murky orange color with a pink hue, bubbly head on top. Interesting looking in the snifter. The aroma is mostly odd raspberry with what maybe mango. Sugary, hints of yeast.

The flavor is actually better than I was guessing. Mango, peach upfront with a thicker Belgian yeast body. Decent medium in body with the fruity notes and sugar showing back up in the back end of the sip. Don’t really get any Brett funk at all, actually I was really glad it wasn’t a funky mess.

Draft at GM with Chris and wall streets. Pours an orange tomato soup body with no head or lacing. Aroma is mango and vegetables. Mouthfeel is thinner than the body suggests - notes of mango purée, veggies, green leaf, herbal character and sharp grapefruit soda. Lemon/like character.

tectactoe (2348) - Michigan, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Bottle: Murky, opaque tomato-ish orange hued, gray-tinted fizzly & bubbly film on top. Some juicy mango on the nose, generic tropical notes with the sharp acidity of the raspberry skins in the rear. Heavy cotton must, Brett yeast, & floral notes, too. Mild sweet-tarts. Smells more sweet than tart, though. Tons of that cottony Brett dryness & musk in the flavor. Woodsy, lightly floral. Hint of acidic raspberry, softer mango flesh underneath. Herbal, floral, & Brett-funk finish, heavy must & cobweb that settles with time & integrates itself to the fruits better. Lightly tannic, sharp, exceedingly dry mouth feel. Better than expected.

ineedbeer (893) - Oakland, California, USA - SEP 2, 2014
Poured from a 750 ml bottle. Aroma is very fruity with a lot of mango and raspberry character. Some light malt character with some medium light citrus and a moderate phenolic note of pepper and Thai basil notes. The phenolic character is interesting and reminds me of Asian cooking. Pours a cloudy, copper red with some orange brown hues. Big, medium thick, rocky head that recedes fairly quickly. No lacing and faint legs. Flavor has a slight acidity with quite a bit of mango and raspberry character. Some light, bready and grainy malt notes. Moderate phenolic notes of pepper, basil and some other spices. Light alcohol character. Moderate bitterness. The fruitiness doesn’t work well with the bitterness and phenolic notes in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low, but present astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a great aroma but the flavor doesn’t work well. The phenolic character is too strong fro the fruit and they clash a bit. As I drink more, my palate does adjust to the phenolic character and it gets more drinkable.
