The beer pours a filtered looking dark brown with a thin off-white head that fades quickly. The nose is deceptively sweet with slightly toasted caramel sugars and yeast upfront followed by a subtle waft of fruit and vinegar as it warms. The taste has much more roasted malt sweetness, which is quickly overtaken by vinegar-like acidity and a lingering bready fruit (cherry?) mix. The combination works relatively well despite the palate clashing differences between the roasty sweetness and vinegar acidity. This is the second dark farmhouse from SARA I've had, and both have been solid products, but the style is still not my thing. I find that while drinking, my brain desperately wants the dark beer to take on a sweeter, (barrel)sugar-centric feel, but instead, the beer becomes more volatile and acidic. Overall, I'm happy to drink a dark base with so much culture and acidity, but can't commit to trying it again. (919 characters)

Oak, tart to sour, roasty, the darker flavors are present. Good balance. Just not a beer that blows you away though. (118 characters)
