500 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Dark brown body. Slight transparency at the edges. Not much of a head. Thin collar.
Smell - Brighter fruit than the Nebula version. Cherry and brighter raspberry. More acidic. Minimal roast.
Taste - Bright fruit. Cherry and raspberry. Muted roasted malt presence. More acidic and dry. Wine notes in the back.
Mouthfeel - Much drier than the Nebula version. Doesn't allow the malt flavors to come out as much.
Overall - Very similar, just some subtle differences. More emphasis on acidic and fruity components here.

Not sure why but all the bottles I saw at the release had a killer bottom wax job. Something I'd never seen before. 16oz. bottle into a Cantillon tulip. Shared with schen9303.
Pours a .5 finger foamy, coffee colored head with good retention. Beer is a very dark, nearly opaque mahogany. Lacing is stringy but layered with decent stick. Thin but oily legs. I'm hoping for a bit more lace and head from my Saisons for the most part.
Nose is dark fruit, rotting wood, roasted malt, with just a hint of sweet and tartness. Moderately aromatic.
Opens sweet and tart prunes, plum, and soy sauce. Some roast, more dark fruit and Brett notes in the middle. Pretty sour overall. End is ash, more sour dark fruit, and just a touch of woodiness at the finish. Aftertaste of bitter chocolate and cocoa powder. Decent.
Light bodied with ample carbonation. Lively and bubbly in the mouth and aggressive and coarse going down. Finish is messy with a lingering aftertaste. Solid.
Rare does not always translate to good and Guillemot Prunus is a great example of that. I've heard a lot of Tired Hands hype in recent months but this is not their best work. Decent but not worth going out of your way for.

I split this with my cousin, poured into snifter, pitch black pour, medium head, light lacing. The aroma is tart, funk, sour cherries. It taste like a sour stout, vanilla, booze. The carbonation is good, medium body, suprisingly drinkable. A very interesting beer, wish I had another.

I was lucky enough to have this side by side with the Nebula. Poured from the bottle into a tasting snifter.
The beer pours a dark brown color with just a small amount of head. The nose is sweet and reminds me a bit of brown sugar. I'm also getting cherries and mild oak. The taste tart but the sweeter notes are still there. Cherries are showing up, but there is also a dark fruit note in the background. I'm also getting some oak. The sour note builds to the finish. Not sure I would have guessed Saison. The body is medium with tingly carbonation and a dry finish. I enjoyed this more than the Nebula due to the sweetness.
