This one is very sour. Your jaw will be puckered for a long time afterwards, feels like a muscle cramp. DrnkMcDermott (3141) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - NOV 21, 2017
Bottle sent by Lagunitas for review. This starts with a very clear, light amber color with a fizzy head. The smell during the pour has some red wine and some grassy funk as you’d want in a farmhouse style.
Eroica is right up front with its tart, but it’s softened by an edge of that red wine and oak. After a while, the general feeling is of a tart strawberry juice, with some whipped cream on the side. Its sourness encourages just the right rate of sipping for its slightly higher abv. I go with the general pairing recommendation for sour beers: soft cheese like a Brie; to match the e French/Flemish character of this style’s origin. Or other dessert items with a soft dairy component, like a cheesecake, cannoli or a flan. jgb9348 (6486) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 21, 2017
Clear amber and deep copper coloured body with a super-fast-dying pure head, only a centimetre tall at the largest. Aroma of vinegar, soured funk, a bit of earthy malts, a little key lime and pure lemon citrus tartiness and finishes with some mellow sugars. Medium-bodied; Strong funky oak dryness at first with a lot of the soured, barrel-aged funk that has a lot of the dry charactistics, some more mellow sweetness and a big yeast kick at the end that shows a bit of brett and some unfinished sugars. Aftertaste shows some dry apple and fruity kicks, but the sour funk is definetely around and showing some pungent flavours with the citrus and funky grain flavours that finish a bit more robust and reserved. Overall, an interesting beer that shows some light Saison-y notes, but the majority is a soured beer that shows more of the former, in terms of malt and yeast along with the rest of the components. I sampled this thirty-two ounce fill in a growler on 19-November-2017 for US$8,00 at Whole Foods in Fairfax (Fair Lakes), Virginia on sampled at home in Washington on 20-November-2017. meccahh69lol (359) - New Haven, Connecticut, USA - NOV 18, 2017
I can't resist an undrunken Lagunitas option so had to hop on this as soon as I saw it. It has a sour funk aroma and a basic orange golden haze. The taste was of sour berries with some slight bretty funkiness around the edges. It is compelling and complex, we really dug it. Good for a brief excursion out on a work night that results in no sleep but a lot of cuddles.

Far too sour to be a saison. And most disappointingly it's a sour flavor that doesn't go anyehere. Very disappointed with this one.
