Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - AUG 6, 2010
Draught at Bier Stein. Ruddy brown pour with hints of red and a nice, tight tan head. Smelled of cherries, plums, earthen hops, maybe a mild bit of chocolate, some yeast. Flavor is cherries, raisins, and a skosh of chocolate. Very easy drinking, I could have put several of these back with no problem. Can’t wait to visit Upright again and see what those crazy kids will get up to next!

jercraigs (9872) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2010
2010-07-01. Dark red tinged brown body, modest beige head and a smattering of lace. 3+ Odd aroma, light funk, musty, mild malt, odd fruit. Flavour has a modest sourness throughout that is Flemish Red like, modest sour cherry character, sharp sourness in the finish dissipates. Light notes of green vegetation. Average plus palate. This was actually pretty decent but was not really what I was in the mood for at the time unfortunately. On tap at Uber Tavern, Seattle

[3081-20100702] Tap. Mild maple toast and fruit orange skins aroma. Hazy, dark red brown body with a long-lasting creamy off-white head. Odd sour flavour tinge has toasted sweet maple hints and seaweed wet grains. Medium body. Odd but works well.

leems (406) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 15, 2010
This beer is dark with a small fizzy head, the aroma is slightly funky with some sour apple and maybe red fruit peaking through. Taste is still funky with a slight sour, very drinkable and interesting.

trevor211 (1631) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 27, 2010
Interesting, though I certainly wouldn’t have billed it as a saison. This one was like the Rodenbach for me, with a bit more funk and earthiness. It had a nice depth, but I was looking for more complexity and balance.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 26, 2010
Dark mahogany pour, small white head. Very hard hitting, strange aroma on this with a lot of sourness. Smells vinegary, grainy, lemony, bretty funk, with a little sour milk note along with various red fruit notes. The flavor is more of the same, but slightly mellowed in terms of the fruits and with more hay/grass. I found there was a pronounced whey-like underflavor that put me off a bit and made it hard to finish my glass. Enjoyable and interesting, but it wore out its welcome pretty fast as sour beers go.

gracefullypunk (667) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 18, 2010
On tap at Sourfest (I believe). Pours an opaque brown red with a beige head and lace. Smells of sugar and yeast. Not really sour, some bread, just odd. Don’t taste currants or red fruits.

AmEricanbrew (6737) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JUN 13, 2010
Hazy brown color/ tan head. Big vinegar smell at first, then nutty, seedy dark rye bread with caraway. smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied. Nice lightly sour, nutty grainy dark rye cracker flavors with dry wood, tart red wine. good. @Bottleworks.

SuzyGreenberg (1603) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 10, 2010
Draft @ Brouwer’s Sour Fest; dense, dark reddish brown with thin tan head lingering; nose is a mix of mild butter, brett and vinegar; drinks with a dry light vinegar flavor, yeast and hay; definitely some horse blanket going on with a little butter too; nothing too off putting, but this was one strange beer; mild farmhouse meets sour brown; fizzy mouthfeel with mild yeasty spice and fruity sour; interesting

SrSilliGose (3328) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - MAY 27, 2010
tap at upright. pours a hazy brown amber. notes of dirty cherries. pudding, moldy basement. creamy mouthfeel. unlike anything i’ve ever had. think oud bruin with medicinal note and basement pudding. not my favorite, but bonus points for being super duper neat. also some nuts, chocoalte, and coffee notes. strange.
