Shared at an Ann Arbor get together at Jeff’s on July 20. 750 mL bottle. The pour is a lightly foggy golden yellow with a small cap of white head that lingers pretty intently. The aroma is definitely sour fruit. There is a little bit of funkiness here, but it’s pretty good. I like the strawberry aroma. It’s normally a docile fruit when in beer, but I’m a fan. The funk on the back end is pretty hefty. It’s something else. The flavor is a little better. There is a nice bright berry and a great tart crispness. There’s a little pepper on the back end, but it does tie it together nicely. The mouth feel is light and crisp with a nice carbonation and a really peppery aftertaste, especially as it warms up. This is one of the better strawberry sours I’ve had, but the pepper just needs to calm it down a little. Lubiere (13900) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 23, 2016
A lightly hazed golden saison with a thin white head. In aroma, sweet fruity malt with light strawberry notes, light Brett, light lactic notes, very nice. In mouth, a nice mix of tart strawberry jam, light acidity, light Brett, light cork character, ground cherries, very nice and complex. On tap at Gnarly Barley. Mark_Eck (1948) - - JUL 12, 2016

THANKS for sharing RB people! Sampled 750 ml. bottle @ outside De Bierkoning during Carnivale Brettanomyces 2016! Some of their sister beers of Goose Island aren’t that great & plenty of the new vintages were lesser, overly sour etc. compared to what I remember them being. This one was just wonder as fitting for a show as phenomenal as the X-Files. Hazy orange with basically no head. Nose is big strawberry, honey, faint apricot, huge fruit & light honey. Taste is awesome strawberry, fruit is vibrant and lively, sweet upfront, sweet strawberry with honey leading into a complimentary sour, lightly puckering, this has balance, amazing fruit etc. this one & Halia are the ones that you need.
