Poured from a 750 ml bottle. Aroma is interesting with a moderate dark fruit note with some cherries, berries and cassis. Light roast and chocolate notes with a bit of a toasted bread character. Moderate note from the grains of paradise with a peppery, phenolic character. Pours dark brown, almost black, with a medium small, moderately thick, dark tan head that recedes fairly quickly to the edges where it lingers for a bit. No lacing or legs. Flavor is moderately to moderately strongly acidic with some dark chocolate notes and light roast. A moderate salinity to the finish. Lots of tart fruit notes with cherries and berries being most prevalent. Some citrus notes towards the finish with a moderate peppery phenolic note that works well with the salt. Light alcohol spice. As it warms the sharpness of the acidity wears off a bit. More roast shows through with more fruit, but less tartness to the fruit notes. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low, but present alcohol warmth. Overall, an alright dark sour that improves greatly as it warms up a bit. The salt level also starts off a bit strong, but improves as the palate adjusts. Grains of paradise add a nice complexity but may be a bit strong.

Bottle (750 ml) shared at tasting. Thanks to kcherney for this bottle! Hazy brown-ish with a small beige head leaving little lacing. Flavors of cocoa powder, brettanomyces, red fruits/wine, roasted notes, spices, peppery notes, toasted notes and grains. Taste isnt really sweet and the acidy and sourness, while non negligeable, are restrained and blend in well in the winey profile. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Fruity finish. Thats an odd beer for sure but as usual SARA is able to deliver a flavorful, rather well balanced under the circumstances, and original product. Interesting.

Pours a medium brown with a small offwhite head that leaves spotty lacing. Nose is of red grapes, yogurt and oak. Taste is of blackberries, chocolate and is moderately sour. Really classy. Body is medium, carbonation moderate and mouthfeel nicely vinous. Overall a nice fruity dark sour, I would certainly pick that up again!

Saison fonce avec des bretts et des raisins et du rti contrl. Les saveurs de fruits foncs et de notes aigres sont bien structures et se posent sur un rti contrl. La texture vineuse est agrable. La finale de crales rendues sres sont teintes par des fruits noirs.
