TaktikMTL (7999) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 14, 2017
Bouteille verte de 750 ml partagée lors d'une dégustation entre amis. Arôme: Odeur de fruité surette. Apparence: La couleur est blonde-ambrée opaque avec une très faible densité de bulle. Présence d'un mince col mousseux et d'une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût fruité surette avec une pointe de brett. Durée moyenne de l'arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement vineuse. Faible effervescence en bouche. Arrière goût surette. (Rating #7871)

MartinT (10102) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 22, 2017
My Bottom Line:

Dandelion-like floral aromas meet Lambic-y funk in this tart Wild Ale.



Further Personal Perceptions:

-A ring of foam circles the hazy pale pink.

-Drinkability is quite high.

-The sumac fruitiness blends in nicely.

-Acidity levels remain moderate.



Bottle.

On tap at Mikkeller Bar SF. Pours cloudy gold with a tiny white head and a sourish grape aroma. There is a medium-bodied pale malt flavor with a plethora of fruit tastes. Dry salty finish.

60minuteman (1765) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 4, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2017 Bottle from store. A highly quaffable/sessionable sour saison. Seemingly light in the numbers but not short on zest or fruity flavors (grapefruit, lemon, orange). Strong malt backbone with a bit of salinity. Very complex for such a light brew.

egajdzis (6777) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 12, 2016
Burgundy color with small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of merlot, wood, citrus, earth, barnyard. Taste of merlot, grape skins, wood, dark fruits, wheat, salt, and a tart finish.

mansquito (6989) - Nueva York, New York, USA - SEP 10, 2016
Tired Hands Fermenteria: pours pinkish orange with a white head. Aroma is woody, winy, and funk. Taste is lightly sour. Very woody. Lightly minerally. Pretty complex. Nice aftertaste. Nice.

Tart but not too much really great balance between tart and flavor. Dark fruits and tannins. Just a nice beer.

ClarkVV (6893) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 2, 2016
Draught at Fermenteria, 8/27/16.
Auburn-tinged copper body shows just a touch of haze, with a rose-flecked, off-white head atop showing moderate to low retention.
Light brett tartness flecked with mild citrus fruitiness is backed by soft wheat notes, a hint of salinity and bright, but not punchy, red grape notes. Very minimal funk to it, but a good dose of minerality and hay, with no alcohol, hop, or flaw.
Bright, lightly to moderately tart, with a soft, wheat-laden texture incorporating tight carbonation and high attenuation. Brett works well with the grape notes, adding a lovely lime-cherry-wine flavor that is dry, nicely drawn out on the finish and isn’t overly acidic. Very easy-drinking, highly flavorful little beer. Lots of fun stuff going on for 4.6% abv and nothing overdone.

AirForceHops (7913) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 21, 2016
4 oz sample at the Fermentaria. Light hazy gold, no head when it arrived at the table. Aroma
Is citrus, red gapes and malted wheat


The red grape comes across through the sip with mild citrus in the backend. Brett is jere yet subtle. The salt is subtle
But drys out the texture. Again, (as always as bery nice soft mouthfeel) gosh, this is great!

Some tangy orange and wine with foeders bretta. Hazy golden pour with good head and lacing. Tangy finish. Tap at Churchkey.
