750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - It's a slow gusher. Consistent, but slow, sludge-like flow of foam and chunks of sediment. A very careful pour yields a medium khaki head and nice lacing.

Smell - Tons of brett. Some lemony and orange-y citrus. Not really heavy on the dark malts.

Taste - Lots of brett. It has really taken over. More dark malts than in the nose, but it isn't really strong. Tart citrus. Lemon and orange. Yeasty. Slightly harsh bitter finish.

Mouthfeel - Dry, acidic, and bitter. High carbonation. A little harsh.

Overall - The brett has taken over, but it's still interesting. I expected more dark malts.

Had on 12/21/2012, served in a tulip.

A-Looks like a black lager with a high inch of white head which recedes slowly.

S-Very wine forward, smells like a spoiled red wine, but not so much in a bad way.

T-Very odd, I get roasted malt mixed with tart black cherries and a hint of bitter chocolate, somewhat sour.

M-the mouthfeel was consistent with other HF saisons I've had, not bad, nice and prickly.

O-Meh, I wasn't impressed at all, maybe I just don't care for black saisons. Although I would favor this over the others I've had.

Mac = the man!

Beautiful pour is typical of a HF brew; dark brown/black body with copious tan head. Great retention.

Aroma smells infected. Phenolic and muddled, sour yet slightly riddled with infection. Hmm, not the greatest.

Dark fruits against the saison background. Still a touch phenolic, yet the blend of flavors seems to (kind of) work. Creamy body might be the best part of this beer.

Disappointing for a HF brew; everything else they make is among the best of style. Speaks volumes about your brewery when a better-than-average brew is a massive disappointment.
