375ml bottle poured into a Hill Farmstead oversized wine glass.
A~ really dark just as it should be. light brown around the edges with a red hint to it in the light, this has to be from the (wine) barrel. a nice tan head and a tiny bit of lacing.
S~ wine barrel funk up front, sour dark cherries mid pallet, all followed by peppery saison yeast. along with some brett funk coating the whole aroma. mmm...!
T~ !!!! and here we go! follows the nose with a lot more to offer. funky, sour, peppery, bready yeast races the pallet followed by tart dark cherries, raspberry, lemon/lime funk, and some chocolatey malt. all ending with more leathery bretty oak funk as it goes down.
M~ very smooth and refreshing. carbonation is nice as well. not much more to say here! all good!
O~ this is definitely BA Edith but i really wonder what else is in there. i feel like there might be a dab of a stout of sorts adding to the malt characteristic. once again the dark versions of the CD series really stand out for me. theres a lot of people who i’ve came across who don’t really dig Edith, maybe its the whole dark saison thing? i don’t know but Edith along with this are some of my all time favorite brews. hopefully this will turn some more people on to the style. its a shame there wasn’t more to go around. i sure hope Edith will be released again this spring. dogfish120love (1337) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 18, 2017

Bottle shared by AdamChandler at cellar temp back on 3.24.14.
Black pour with a bit of cream colored head that stays around for a while. Smells like some grapes and dark fruits. Flavor is similar - dark fruits, spices, and some vanilla coming through. Drinks smooth. ctipping (2180) - Florida, USA - SEP 6, 2015
375 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Originally reviewed 9/8/2014.
Black body. Medium off-white head. Thick collar.
Aroma is light fruitiness. Roasty. Light acidity.
Sharp tart taste. Toasty malt moves into deep roasted malt. A bit of lemon. Yeasty. White wine peaks out behind the roast.
Medium body. Well carbonated.
Tough to pull off the dark saison. Not the best in the series.

Bottle thanks to Seth. Pours a very dark brown with small beige head that lasts leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is roast, cocoa, wood, licorice. Thin mouth, rich malt, roast, cocoa, vanilla, oak, dark fruit, very good. cubs (10677) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Bottle @ Steve_0 during my 10k tick fest. Pours a deep brown appearance with a brown head. Dark chocolate, pine, mint, funk in the nose. Medium light body. Light citrus, lemon, pine, spruce tips, dark chocolate, and some funk. This is pretty interesting but doesn’t blow my mind. Steve_0 (3745) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Bottle at home with friends, courtesy of Aaron. Thanks man! Pour is deep brown with a small tan head and great lacing. Funky, acidic, tannic, somewhat tangy, woody, light roast, caramel, and brown sugar in the aroma. Taste is tangy, grapey, caramel, brown sugar, tannic, orange juice, hay, and dark fruits with a medium sour finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Pretty good - just not a huge of dark farmhouse ales. arminjewell (9689) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Pour out of 375mL bottle, thanks Aaron! Dark brownish black pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of oak, cocoa, roast, some slight vinegar, slight red fruits into a bit of earth. Taste was a mix of dark fruit, oak, earth, slight yeast into a bit of grain, slight dark cocoa, finishing fairly tart, slightly sweet.
