Thanks to Rado for sharing this one at Retsinis' tasting.

2013 vintage. Bottle # 149/801.

Pours a hazy dark orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is slightly sour with malt, grain, fruit, Brett, and wine aromas. Taste is much the same with funk, Brett, and wine flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of wood and funk bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a Brett presence that comes across very earthy in the taste.

Picked this up at the brewery a few days after Christmas.

Served in a FFF Teku.

A: Poured an amber color, infinitely cloudy, and with a sticky, soapy, white head.

S: So much candy here: Jolly Rancher, Pixie Stick dust, and just a mere hint of a Belgian yeast strain.

T: Not a saison to my mind, but I'll take it. So sugary and delectable. However, it WAS quite good.

M: Perfect mouthfeel, ridiculous lacing, and quite the dessert-like sugar content.

O: Hell, I think this was worth the $20. Then again, I'm an avid FFF fan.

750 mL bottle purchased at the brewery on 12/22/13, bottle #225/801, 2013 vintage, poured into my FFF Teku and drank over an hour.

A: 2/3 - amber-brown coloration; little clarity (cannot see or read through); rocky mahogany head settles into a one finger head; moderate alcohol legs

S: 8/10 - mixture of saison and barnyard aroma; no hop aroma; no gross flaws detectable

T: 15/20 - on the front on the tongue, there is an astringent sourness that dominates; this develops in the middle of the mouth to a mild barrel-aged malt character with some Belgian yeast fruity ester flavors; finishes dry and pleasant inviting another sip

M: 4/5 - low-to-moderate body, appropriate moderate-to-high carbonation; would guess 6-8% ABV; little-to-no aftertaste

O: 16/20 - pleasant barrel-aged sour that develops as it warms; in my opinion, this beer needs to commit to either being a saison or an American wild and the barrel needs to shine through more; also, in my opinion, it's not worth $20/bottle and, for the cost, I'd prefer to spend that money on either a Bruery or Lost Abbey sour

TOTAL - 37/50
