4.11/5 rDev -2.6%
Poured from the bottle into a Hill Farmstead wine glass.
Deep brown to near black body, hinting at dark chocolate color. Slightly one finger cream tan head. Spotty lacing and a good tan collar.
Aroma hints at moderate funk and oud bruin slight character. Mild sweetness but hitting at faint caramel and minimal sourness. Moderate acid quality and faint spicy vinegar.
Palate comes with a good sourness and moderate funk. Light toast and matching vinegar mild quality. Hints to oud bruin with less sugars and depth. Classic peppery saison yeast but with a lighter touch.
Overall a decent hybrid saison and reminds me of mild bruin quality. Not mind blowing but quite fun.

Took a bottle to share at Pin's yesterday.
Dark burgundy pour, deep and opaque, topped with a small cap of foamy beige head that retained as a ringlet through the entire session. The fluid left some thin legs on the glass. Great aroma, dark fruits, red wine, funky wood. This really didn't resemble a saison in any way, and I'd say this is a full-blown wild ale. I actually haven't had Edith (the base beer) yet, so I'm not familiar with that to compare it to this, but I just know CD8 was notably more like a wild ale and less like a saison. A firm tartness in the taste up front, notes of black cherries, red wine, raspberries, with a minor citric sourness, bretty funk, a slight barrel profile, somewhat overwhelmed by the fruitiness and tartness of the beer, but still subtly present. Also a slight dark chocolaty malt element, fleshing out the body and giving more of a rich mouthfeel, balancing out the tartness. Very well balanced, medium-full body, lush mouthfeel despite the acidity, and a dry finish. Really liked this one a lot.
