330mL bottle poured into Tired Hands stemware
Inky black pour with a frothy tanned head resting on top. Fades slowly into a wispy slick of retention with spotty lacing littered around the glass.
Complex, warm nose with hints of toasted malts, yeasty funk, tartness, cherries and toasted oak. Tannic with red wine, grape skins, bourbon and soft glowing heat.
Snappy sourness right up front with layers of cherries and grape skins. Fruity and vinous, driven by red wine character, tobacco, toasted oak and bourbon. Hints of vanilla and chocolate in the malt base, roasted dark tones and soft sweetness. Tart, funky yeast on the tongue with alcohol warmth in the finish.
Medium body, upper level carbonation, dry and bubbly on the tongue. Fascinatingly complex and interesting beer which offers much more than the typical barrel-aged saison (also, I found this to be more of a straight up wild ale).

Bottle pour at Woodshop 8 held at The Hermosillo in Los Angeles, CA.
Thanks to Chris F. for sharing this one.
Pours a murky brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is slightly sour and tart with roasted malt, fruit, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour and tart roasted malt and fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty but the sour aspect comes across slightly better in the aroma.
