COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belgian style saison aged in red wine barrels with brett and boysenberry. A dewy-fresh, sweet, tart twist on our Belgian-style Saison, this spiced ale offers notes of fresh-pressed boysenberry puree and apple blossom with a smooth oak presence throughout. The Brettanomyces adds a funky and slightly wild zest before balancing out to a smooth finish by earthy tannins from cellar aging.

The first thing that hit me when sniffing this beer was that it was quite milky. Smelling past that, I got some funk and then sour berries. The taste was primarily sour cherries. But what got me (along with the milk) was the cloudy reddish pink colour.

glennmastrange (2899) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUL 23, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2017 Bottle. Moderate hay for the malt, moderate grass for the hops, moderate to heavy musty dankness for the yeast, with vinegar and lots of dark berries in the background. Head is small to average, fizzy/frothy, light lavender, with some slippery lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is murky fusia. Flavor starts heavily acidic and acetic, then finishes heavily acidic and sour. Palate is light to medium, slick, with a lively to fizzy carbonation and an extremely tart finish. Super tasty Saison, but for me this is more of a Sour Ale.

ctipping (2202) - Florida, USA - JUN 20, 2017
750 mL bottle. Bright purple body. Smells of strong berries with a jammy sweetness. Tastes sour right off the bat. Nasally sour. Berry sourness. Not quite vinegar. A little oak in the back end. Way too sour for me. Medium carbonation. Tastes ok, but it’s nearly undrinkable from sourness.

onceblind (10326) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 7, 2016
Dark deep plummy Amber with a fast dissipating fuzzy pink head. Big acidic wild tart. Odd wig some sweet earthy berries and guava tartness. Hugely tart flavor that’s puckering and sharp but also wild and fruity and charming. Loads of wild acidic pucker that doesn’t even calm down after sip number 10, with big sugary blackberry and currant berry flavors, sour finish with a lactic tone. Very bold and vibrant.

Draft at Ei8ht Ball. Pours a dark reddish purple color with a small pinkish head. The aroma and flavor have tart dark berries, oak, light Brett, vinous notes, some tannins, additional fruit, hints of spice, some acidity, this walks the line between tart and sour, I like this and will have it again.
