4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear amber with reddish hues and little to no head. Aroma or fruit and sweet oak. Tastes of sour tart cherries with a little funk from the brett and nice light sweet dry aftertaste. Overall this is a beer not expected from Saint Arnold’s great sour like funky beer. Very good beer.
Bottle, thanks to grownfool. Reddish., with no head to speak of. Smells nice - bourbon and vanilla. Taste is winey-er than I expected, some grape, some more bourbon. dry, woody finish. PartyFowle (954) - - FEB 3, 2015
Bottle into a snifter. Muddy milk chocolate-brown. Bubbles come and go within seconds, leaving a still-looking liquid below. Smells almost sour. Lots of vinegar, green oak, green apple, white grapes, caramel, cherry. The flavor, however, is kind of light, not much to it. A green apple tartness. Splash of sour cherry. Very highly carbonated -- it’s almost hard to pick up the flavor with all these bubbles keeping the beer off my tongue. Light body, no noticeable alcohol. Meh. Too highly carbonated, weak flavor.

sample from bottle at 2014 houston big brew fest. Deep golden orange with small head. Tart, almost sour. Fruity with some wine element. Good funk. I really liked this one.

Pours golden with small tan head out of bottle. Aroma of sour cherries and sour yeast. Flavor of Chardonnay with finish of sour cherries. Good beer overall but I was wishing it would be more sour.

Bottle. Clear red amber, large beige head that dissipates fairly quickly leaving some lacing. Aroma is vinous, red wine, oak, cherries, supplication, perhaps a touch of funk. Really nice. Flavor is not quite up to aroma, but still very nice, Oaky vinous, tart cherry notes. Light initial sweetness dries out quickly, leaving light tartness. Minimal funk. Lightish body. High carbonation is a distraction. Let this one sit a bit. Ahh, gains a bit of funk from the dregs, as well as a cloudiness. Better rounded flavors that way. Brian would be proud of me. rougeau13 (3011) - Richmond, Texas, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Bright reddish-amber with a big beige head. Sour, fruity, bourbon barrel aroma. Tart, woody, fruity flavor, surprisingly weak. Medium bodied and dry with a lot of carbonation. dfinney23 (3269) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 12, 2014
Missed the original release so glad to get a taste now. Pours deep garnet red with little head. Taste leans tart but not mouth puckering. EricTeusink (700) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 5, 2014
This isn’t an old ale, in my opnion this is a Sour/Wild/Saison. Shared with Jrob21. Pours muddy pear with dissipating fizzy head. Scent is wine, berries, and booze. Flavor is sweet and earthy with biting finish. Fizzy light body that suits this beer well. Loved it. Hope Saint Arnold’s brings it back.

12 oz shared by ericteusink. Dry Chardonnay definitely there. Very effervescent. Cool red collor with lots of white head. Finish is a bit tangy and sour some light fruit. Tangerine. Not getting any old ale bit call it what you will.
