330ml bottle bought from Lighthouse Wines, Jordanstown

Poured a murky amber brown colour. Dirty mocha head poured light and wispy... no carbonation bubbles at all... some light sticky lacing..

Aroma - sour and earthy roasted apricots, some nuttiness, pumpkin traces, some funk, light vinegar notes, some leathery notes, oaky wood, black pepper spiciness, hint of nutmeg and cinnamon

Taste –- Pretty much as above... a messy mix of sour roasted apricots, earthy spices (allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg), and some funky wild yeastiness, quite bitter, toasted bread...

Feel - Fairly sharp and dry... medium bodied

Overall - A very messy brew that could do with a lot of tidying up... not much to recommend here

Farmhouse from the UK??? I should have been suspect from the start. This was listed as a sour at Pangeae In Sacramento but it's no sour . Slightly bitter aftertaste but too dark/ heavy for a farmhouse

Poured into a tulip glass. Pours a very hazy caramel brown with a finger of fine off-white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, sweet and sour dark and light stone fruit, earthy with saison style yeast. Flavor is unusual, quite earthy with lightly roasty biscuit malt, woody spices, mild dark and light fruit and finishes with earthy, peppery saison yeast and spicing with a mild buttery element. Medium bodied with pleasant active carbonation. A unique take on the season style, like an herbal ale crossed with a spicy saison. Starts a bit more earthy and woody than expected, but the flavor was intriguing enough to keep interest throughout the glass. I did not taste the apricot flavors, but there was a dark unidentifiable fruit element to the flavor. I'd like to try something else from this brewery, which is new to me. Obviously able to push the envelope and still have an interesting and drinkable ale.

A: The beer is very hazy brownish yellow in color. It poured with a finger high off white head that gradually died down, leaving a large collar around the edge of the glass and wispy lacing on the surface.
S: Light to moderate aromas of apricots are present in the nose along with some notes of spices and hints of sourness.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste has flavors of apricot but these aren't overly strong as there are notes of spices such as ginger and nutmeg. There are only some hints of sourness from the brett.
M: It feels light-bodied and rather airy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The light-bodied nature of this beer and fact that it's not overpowered by apricots makes it very easy to drink. I'm not sure if I would have this again, but it was interesting. Maybe this is a beer that you really need to lay down for several years to let the brett yeast to further develop.

Dark orange in color, very dark for the style. Bready, and an off putting funk. Decent carbonation. Drain poured the last few sips.

Cloudy amber/brown pour with a white one-finger head. Sour aroma with some hints of apricots, bread and spice. Initial tastes of strong spice (nutmeg stands out most) and smoke that are a bit overpowering. Can taste a hint of apricot and dried fruit. Finishes with the taste of burnt spices.
