Hand bottle from FlandersNed-thanks, Steve! Slightly cloudy brown. Malty nose, like an old ale, with some dark fruit/red wine character. Taste does a 180 with plenty of malt, but unexpected sour bite you wouldn’t guess from the nose. Nice red wine like character. Bit flat, but that’s to be expected considering the source. Very smooth and complex at the same time. Probably would rate higher fresh so grain of salt here....

Pour is dark brown with a tan head. Nose has a hint of metal, spicy yeast and a touch of cream, present roasted barley note with a touch of sweetness and a hint of currant. Taste has a strong roasted barley presence, lighter yeast note, sweet lemon with a fairly sweet currant/berry note. Lighter carbonation, light body and insanely drinkable soft feel. Roast lingers, drinkable body and nice sweetness balances.

Picked up in a trade from Phillycraftbeer. Thanks homie. Pours like a porter with near black hue and darker tan head. Aromas of lactic Farnese, some fruit, and some roast. Flavors of roast, light chocolate, some dark chocolate, spice, and nice amount of tartness. Kind of a sour stout. Really pretty solid.

On tap at Tired Hands. Fruity red wine aroma & flavor, with cola and brown sugar notes. I also detected citrus, nuts, woodsmoke, and herbs. So half of it was fermented in stainless steel wine barrels? Another super interesting brew from TH, and the best one I had during my visit there.

Draft at Tired Hands. THis is a really weird beer. Nose is light acetic with some distinct coffee notes. Low clovey phenols and citrus to go with some cherry notes. On tasting, roasty and ashy, too acidic/acetic. Vinegar is starting to pick up and is a bit offputting. The bitterness is in a good place, though. Interesting but weird.

burg326 (3762) - Florida, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Poured a dark brown al.ost black color with rich aromas of chocolate, funky cherry/raspberies and some lactic funk. Flavors were the same rich up front with some light sour aftertaste, a great beer overall.

Growler from Rayl101. Pours near stout black with khaki head. Aroma is fruity, cocoa, spice and a bit of roast. Taste is similar. Sweeter but balanced.

From a growler, shared by dcschiller. Dark brown, nearly black with a. Tan head. Wine, funk and roasty aroma. Taste is funky and wine barrel forward. A nice tasty dark saison.

Lubiere (10139) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 13, 2013
A dark brown saison with a thin brown head. In aroma, a sweet peaty dark fruit with light wood extract and fusel, and earthy notes. In mouth, a sweet dark fruit with sourness, cherries, a bit off.
