750 ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazed golden amber with a moderate off-white head that lasted until mid-glass and left partial lace. Pleasant aroma of malt, tart fruit, and some spice. The flavor is malt, yeast, tart fruit and spice all well represented and harmoniously combined. I am not getting any of the chestnut at all, but that is not detracting me from enjoying this beer. Lively carbonation. A bit spritzy on the palate. Enjoyable. mcbackus (758) - Merritt Island, Florida, USA - APR 17, 2009

Wow POP it went upon opening it. Pour was cloudy orange color. Aroma was lots of different spices going on there, yeast light fruits mostly grapes I guess. Flavor was much the same, was a little thin on the flavor side, old lady floral came out in the flavor not good taste. Not bad not good.

This is the 1st of a roughly 100 beer backlog to be rated by the King of Suds. Bottle from Craft Ale. Pours clear deep caramelly coppery with 2-finger off-white head. Nose is earthy peaty, malty, with some piney and sour mashy fruit notes. Tastes tart, fruity, with earthy, nutty, and spicy notes at forefront, and a balanced malt late. Not terribly complex or palate hefty, this one is enjoyable but not an earth beater. I would not pay 20 bucks for this again, whatever that is worth. thewolf (12946) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 10, 2009

Pours clear amber with a nice, staying, frothy, off-white head. Aroma has notes of oranges, chestnuts, strawberries, ginger and brett. Some wood in there as well. Fine, dry mouthfeel. Light with a subtle small-bubbled carbonation. Flavour has some brett or white wine tartness, sweet caramel, nuts, ginger and yeast. Long, lingering, light tart aftertaste. Very drinkable.
Orange-amber in colour with a very large and long lasting white head, excellent lacing. The aroma is yeasty, light spice, berries, some wood with a moderate sweetness. The flavour is yeasty/musty, quite fruity, apple and green grape tartness, very light spice but the sweetness is a bit more pronounced. Lightly bitter mouthfeel, medium/light body, high carbonation. Finishes lightly spicy, yeasty and quite long.Adam77 (457) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - MAR 31, 2009
This had some insane carbonation making it very hard to pour. Toning that down will make this a bit more drinkable.
750ml bottle obtained in a trade with Beerlando, thanks Bryan.
Opened on December 15, 2008.
Bottle from 2007.
Poured ruby red with fluffy white head. Aroma of spices. Maybe cinnamon. Somewhat spicy with some sweet finish. Cinnamon present. Gabler (87) - , New York, USA - MAR 23, 2009
Poured dark orange. Sour, yeasty aroma. Light-medium body, very dry mouthfeel. Funky palate, almost gueze-like. Cherry undertones, agressive yeast throughout. Dry finish. Very drinkable ale... noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 22, 2009
Hazy tawny-amber pour, irrationally exuberant beige head, rocky chunks of lace. Aroma has tart fruits, wild yeast, carbonation. Flavor is distinctly cidery, tart, dry, lots of apple peel, touch of citrus. Subdued worty malt backbone. Earthy notes, dust and wild yeast funk, creep in towards the finish. The dryness and apple peel notes tread just a little too close to a chemical heat. Medium body. Soft, sudsy mouthfeel. MrRain (542) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 21, 2009
750ml bottle poured into a shaker. This beer pours orange-yellow and murky with a large creamy head. The aroma is tart and fruity. This is a pretty sour beer but it has a saison feel to it. It’s okay but not really my style.
